Technology and Online Bingo at its Finest

Technology has made its mark in almost every aspect that is known to man – lifestyle, academics, sports, and even with the most primitive of sorts such as fire; it has paved its way towards everything imaginable to man and without technology, life would not become as easy as we know it already is. And now, it has made its way unto something usually done manually, bingo in its new avatar of online bingo.

Yes, technology has presented itself to this gaming trend that has been with the humans since the times when gambling became a good entertainment of sorts and a source to which money plays a big role and taking risks is the thrill of the game. It has leveled the game up a little bit, by introducing online bingo.

Online Bingo

Online Bingo

In this modern age, again, technology has made it possible for people who are busy with work to play bingo even when you are resting at your own abode, but if you plan to create a website where people can play online bingo, never think for a second that it will be an easy job. On a brighter side though, technology has developed applications such as Java and Adobe Flash in order to help with the development of online bingo – its layout, design, and the intricacies that makes it function which makes playing bingo online a pleasurable experience by being pleasing to the eye and having smooth operations, making it a definite experience.

In addition, you can now play bingo anywhere you go. If online bingo was developed years back, then certain limitations, imposed by the times, would not allow you to play online bingo anywhere. Back then, the only place which allows internet access would be the computer desktop and we all know that this kind of personal device is fixed in a certain area of your house. Moreover, you cannot carry it around since it would be too bulky especially with the number of components that it needs in order to run its functions, not to mention the complicated wirings.

In contrast, these times have allowed accessibility anywhere we go because in addition to the devices such as smart phones, PDAs, and Netbooks, to name a few, the internet connection is already available without wires and the devices can pick them up anywhere that a hotspot is available. With these, you can play bingo anywhere you can such as parks or restaurants, in devices that is getting smaller and smaller.

In relation to the previous paragraph, anywhere you go there is an assurance that you will get something when you play bingo, especially when it is online bingo. This also means that, anyone can win at anytime – may it be a co-worker in the office or a friend while you are hanging out – and if that happens, then you can be assured of free drinks and food, if they do not get too stingy.

Lastly, the question that might be hovering above the clouds is “Will bingo being played online replace traditional bingo?” The answer, maybe, but it could be more of complementary of each other. Since traditional bingo stations close earlier, you could continue playing at the comforts of your own home.

Points in favour of the entertainment provided by Online Bingo

The basic aim of the online bingo sites is to entertain the players who are interested in an online game. You can win some money by playing bingo on these online sites, but usually nobody plays bingo to make a profit.

Most of the new online bingo sites have players who say that they play online bingo for entertainment and to relax themselves. In case they win some money from the game, it goes to enable them to continue with their game by paying for it. If they lose some money then they consider that the money has been spent on entertaining themselves.

Investing in Bingo

Bingo, like many other games, has moved online. We often think of Bingo as a homey game played in community centers across the world. But it also has a more serious side as a betting and jackpot game. In traditional Bingo halls, the rules for winning and collecting winnings are different from place to place, but they are usually stated at the Bingo hall itself. If players get confused, there is an attendant who can help explain the policy.

When playing online Bingo, players can be at a bit of a disadvantage. Like in traditional Bingo halls, online Bingo sites clearly state their financial policies in a special section on their website. However, if they are unclear to you it is rare that someone can explain them. This article will seek to explain some of the common practices found among online Bingo sites so that you can make smart decisions about your betting.

The first thing to be aware of is that not all sites are reputable. Online Bingo attracts as many as 3 million players per day, and it is no surprise to anyone that there are scam artists on the internet hoping to cash in on this type of trade. A scammer will set up a real looking site that allows you to deposit money, but will never pay you if you win. The best way to spot them is to check out their discussion boards. Healthy online Bingo sites tend to attract a community of repeated players. If the players have stuck around, then the site is clearly operating a legitimate business. You can also try checking independent online Bingo sites and forums. They will be populated by players who frequent many sites and, most likely, have discovered the ones that are scams. If you don’t have much time, try typing in the name of your Bingo site and see if any posts have been made about it.

The second consideration is the withdrawal limits. Once you’ve found a reputable site you’ll want to look closely at their financial policies to determine just when and how much money you can withdraw at a time. Sites will often have a minimum amount that you must meet to withdraw your funds, and most will also have a maximum. This is to protect the site. First, the site wants you to stay invested. Having a short waiting period or barrier to withdrawing ensures that the players make some sort of commitment before sitting down. Second, the sites operate like a bank in that if everyone withdrew at the same time, or if they suffered a large withdrawal, they might shut down or be unable to meet the amount. By spreading large withdrawals over a set amount of time, the site has the ability to make money to meet its obligations.

So remember, before investing in any site, do your research. You’ll want to know if the site is reputable and that your financial information will be safe. You’ll also want to understand what its withdrawal policies are before you go to withdraw and find that you can’t. If you arm yourself with knowledge, you’ll enjoy the bingo game much more.

Recession does not affect Online Bingo

The game of online bingo is no more restricted to aged players, old ladies and grandmothers at the recreation functions held by the churches. The demographic change brought about by the popularity of online bingo has seen a huge shift towards the dominance of young women players in the present world of online bingo players. The number of men who play online bingo has also increased to a large extent. As a matter of fact, there are no more online bingo sites which have exclusively male clientele only.

Online Bingo

The game of bingo is sometimes considered as an integral part of the British culture and has been looked upon as a means of passing some spare time. Both the land based and online forms have been greatly appreciated by the masses for its entertainment content. The huge cash prizes and high stakes are considered to be secondary to the entertainment value by many bingo players.

Most of the players think that the chance to meet and mix with people from different corners of the world in the chat rooms is the most important feature provided by the game of online bingo. This feature is considered to be the best part in the industry of online gaming at present.

The number of new sites entering the gaming industry has spurred the speedy growth of the industry of online gaming. The new sites are bringing in better features with them making the overall playing experience reach new heights. More and more new sites had contributed hugely to the growth of the gaming industry in the past also.

One such new contribution to the gaming industry is the webcam which has brought the game bingo played in land based bingo halls live to the homes of the online bingo players.

The internet and the networking features have led to the development of a large number of online games and have helped in the building up of a large community of bingo players. All the online sites encourage the players to join this online community and participate in the chat room games and the discussions.

The chat rooms are the meeting places for the community of online bingo players. The charisma of the chat room moderators in many of the chat rooms of the online sites have contributed to the cause of retaining the members to a large extent. The webcams which have been added recently in the chat rooms enable the players to have visual contact with the chat room moderators and other players.

These features had been planned a long time ago but their implementation finally has helped the industry attain higher levels in providing entertainment to the players. More number of players joining the site for socializing makes it all the more interesting and attractive to induce more affiliated companies to open new sites.

The companies affiliated to the online bingo gaming industry are attracted by the huge commissions and revenue earned by these online bingo sites. In fact, the online bingo sites are responsible for creating a large number of jobs for the professional engaged in marketing and advertising. These online games are capable of generating huge amounts of money for the affiliated industries.

The growth and expansion of the industry has been very steady due to the constant introduction of new online gaming sites every week. Due to the positive growth there has been no effect of recession in this particular industry. There are almost 400 such online gaming sites on the internet and the number is growing every week.

Let’s talk about a bingo winner:

QUOTE

Thank you so much Cyber, if ever i am asked to recommend a site – this would be the one...

I still can’t believe i won that money, I was sitting with a nice glass of wine and a very loving partner and we was so happy we were laughing and kissing. It has been a really hard winter with business very slow, this money will go a very long way to setting us up for the forthcoming season in our business, and its a wonderful feeling to know that the security is now there. Thank you so much Cyberbingo, if ever I am asked to recommend a site – this would be the one. Good luck to all bingo players, it really does happen.

UNQUOTE

You have to be very careful when choosing the site where you want to play online bingo. The reason for this caution is because when you want to get yourself registered with a site for playing bingo, you will be asked to provide your credit card or debit card number.

But some of the online bingo sites are too lax with their security which may allow offenders to steal your personal information and use it for their own gain. The possibility of such an occurrence taking place may cause you sleepless nights.

To know more about the online sites you can go through the reviews and discussions which take place in their chat rooms between different players. From these reviews and discussions you can make out whether the online site is dependable or not both financial wise and integrity wise.

This is what happened to a lady player when she decided to play bingo on a reputed online bingo site. This lady was facing acute financial distress because of a long and hard winter which had taken a heavy toll on her business and her day to day life. She was completely at a loss about how to go on operating her business under the circumstances. She had no more money to invest in the already failing business and was about to go bankrupt.

So with a heavy heart, she turned to the game of bingo for help. For a long time now she had been hearing people get rich playing bingo on the online sites. She had even read stories in the newspapers about bingo players winning a lot of cash. She was quite doubtful about these stories and did not trust unknown people getting hold of her credit card number.

But curiosity had got the better of her and whenever she found nobody around, she would try to do research on the subject of online bingo sites. Through painstaking research she found out the names of some of the online bingo site which looked respectable, dependable and secure.

As she was feeling quite desperate and depressed she chose one of these sites which looked most favourable in her opinion, got herself registered and started the game of bingo. At first she was a bit hesitant about what cards to buy and how much to bet. But as the game proceeded she became more and more confident.

The game was going on fairly well and she could see people winning a bingo now and then. She was wishing fervently for her turn to come to win a bingo when suddenly it happened. The colour of her card changed and a message on the screen started blinking saying that her card had won a huge sum of cash.

At first she could not believe her eyes but when she realized it was true, she was so elated that she hugged her partner sitting beside her with a glass of wine and kissed him in joy. By winning such a huge amount of cash she felt very relieved as all her worries about the future of her business had been reduced to zero in one stroke. She was so happy with the way the online bingo site had helped her in her hour of crisis that she wanted everybody to go through the same experience.

It is a wonderful feeling which you get when you win a huge amount of prize money by playing bingo on an online bingo site which is known for its credibility, honesty and fairness.

The promotional games offered by these online sites have been quite a few with large amounts of prize money and bonuses being offered. One of the best promotions which the reputed online sites had come up with for the first time in the history of bingo can be considered a very novel idea. The promotion on offer to the players was 3 free cards for every 6 cards you buy, or 6 free cards for every 12 cards bought or 9 free cards for every 18 cards bought and so on. The games were held in a special bingo room called the Valentine’s Day Bingo room every evening from 6 pm Eastern Time until midnight of the same evening. The games were held on a pari-mutuel basis meaning that the prize money was not declared at the beginning but depended on the total cash inflow due to sales before the game actually started. You can imagine the amount of interest this promotion generated.

There were other promotions offered during the month of February which made the month so special to both online bingo sites and bingo players alike. The reputed online bingo sites like CyberBingo & VistaGaming were offering the games of President’s Max called $150 maximum $500 games which were held every hour starting from 6 pm onwards up to midnight on the evening of Monday, 18th February. The games were held in the Valentine’s Day bingo room on top of the normal bingo games.

The type of promotion you should keep yourself aware of and participate in whenever they are offered are the Guaranteed Games. They had guaranteed prize money of $10,000 and were held in the month of February. In this huge bingo event there were three warm-up games which were held before the commencement of the actual game. The games started at 8 pm, 9 pm and 10 pm respectively with cash prizes of $1000 in each game. The actual Guaranteed Game of $10,000 cash prize started at 11 pm with the Coverall pattern being declared as the winning pattern. One of the regular players who participated in the game saw the color of his card change from the earlier color to red showing that he had won the bingo. At first the player could not believe in her luck and thought that the red color meant that she had to share the winning amount with other winners. But when her name was displayed beside the winning amount of $10,200, she just could not believe her eyes and vented her excitement in a scream of ecstasy as she lobbed her laptop towards her brother.

This confirms the fact that if you play on the reputed online bingo sites like CyberBingo & VistaGaming, which offer you absolute privacy for your personal information, you always have a chance to win big. So, start playing online bingo at these sites without any hesitation and get rich in the process.

Though bingo provides a lot of thrill an excitement, discipline is a very vital factor for winning in any game of luck. All bingo players should exercise restraint to remain in control of the game and make smart decisions while playing bingo. Once you start on a game of bingo the circumstances prevailing at the moment can make you get carried away. It is absolutely essential for you to decide on your strategy before you proceed any further. You should spend your money judiciously by setting limits to your expenses and by remaining within those limits you have created for yourself whatever happens.

Stop yourself from chasing your losses with the idea of regaining some of it. It is a common mistake which is made by all inexperienced bingo players which results in a bigger loss than if they had stopped their game in time when the loss was small. Going after a big win when you are having a losing streak is usually very foolhardy and normally does not work.

Avoid drinking too much while you are placing your bets. Too much alcohol deprives you of a clear mind and straight thinking and makes you take rash decisions and unnecessary risks. Limit your intake of alcohol to small amounts when you are playing bingo so that you can remain completely sober throughout the game.

Do not consider your winnings to be money belonging to the bingo house and not to you and do not return it because you think so. The actual game is not only to have fun and enjoy the game but also to win some money as you play bingo against the house. So whenever you are lucky enough to win some cash, try to get it out from the house for which you will be thanking your stars at a later date.

Retain your style of playing bingo even if you are on a winning streak. If you are a habitual low bettor, then you should try to retain the way you bet even if it is tough when you are having a winning streak and thinking that you may win more if you bet more. There is always chance that your winning streak may end suddenly and you will lose much more because your wager was big.

A lot of fun and excitement can be derived out of the games of slots, bingo and scratch cards. But you should remember to disengage yourself from the game and rethink a different strategy if the present strategy is forcing you to draw upon your funds for household uses. Take a resolution that you will use your wisdom to play smart bingo this New Year 2013 and if Lady Luck smiles on you then you might come out a winner after all.
