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

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.

Online Bingo

The players who are dedicated to playing online bingo are actually trying to find a portal with the help of which they can fulfil all their wishes. Since there are no restrictions imposed by the online bingo sites on location, age, gender or language, the game of bingo has become extremely popular to the people all over the world. Instead of losing popularity, the game of bingo has spread like wildfire among the masses throughout the globe and has a large number of people who are huge fans of the game.

The integration of the chat rooms with the operation of the online bingo sites has been the most attractive aspect of the game of online bingo. On top of this facility anyone can choose to play bingo without any money if he wants to. The chat rooms which are an integral part of the online bingo sites help the players to socialize as well as play the game of bingo. They help the players to keep in constant contact with one another during the period when the game is in progress.

The minimum requirement for playing the online bingo game is a personal computer which is connected to the internet. The online bingo sites offer huge bonuses which can be used to play a large number of games as soon as a player logs into the site and registers himself in order to play the game. Any fan of online bingo will tell you on being asked all about the games offered by the online site and how these games can help to increase the popularity of the industry related to gaming.

A large number of features have been added to the existing regulations and rules which a player should be conversant with. There are a large number of sites which pay cash to the winners directly. In order to show their trustworthiness some sites ask for deposits. Before putting your money on these sites it is better if you check beforehand reliability of the gateways used by the sites for making payments.

The availability of the numerous online bingo sites on the internet increases the opportunity of playing bingo for all the serious bingo players. As the online bingo is very similar to the land based bingo game, it becomes very easy for people who are familiar with the land based game to adapt to the online version.

You can relax after a day’s work by playing online bingo as the game does not require too much mental pressure. The software of the online bingo game does all the work for you by purchasing the cards, checking the numbers, auto daubing the cards and calling out bingo as well. The automatic feature of the game helps to reduce the errors caused by human intervention to a minimum. Thus it can be confidently stated that there is no entertainment like the one provided by a game of online bingo.

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.

Bingo

Bingo

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.

A Bingo Winner story

As the story goes for a bingo winner, there was this lady player who would regularly spent some time playing online bingo but could not win much even after playing every day without fail.

The lady was an avid bingo player but could not spare enough time to play during the day or night as she felt very tired after a day’s hard work. But being a great lover of the game, she used to get up early every morning and have a game of bingo before moving over to her daily household tasks. She had to do the laundry, scrub the tiles, sweep the floors, vacuum the carpets and myriad other jobs which a housewife has to do.

Bingo Winner

One day as usual she got up early end logged into her favourite online bingo site and started playing bingo. But soon she realized that she was not winning anything at all, but just like all the other days only losing money steadily. Frustrated due to the losing streak she was facing, she decided to finish off her daily chores which looked more important to her.

But she could not give up the game and so she bought some cards and then she went about her business. She started by sweeping the floors as she could use a machine to do the job and did not have to go down on her knees to do it. This made it easier for her to make frequent checks on the computer and the progress of the game as she worked on her chores at the same time. She would hurry to the computer, buy some cards if required to continue the game, and return to her work.

But every time as usual, she would find that the balance was getting less and less as she bought the cards but won nothing in return. She was afraid that she would soon lose all her balance and have no more money to pay for the cards. She started to dread this moment as it would mean that she would have to borrow money from her family so that she could play online bingo.

It happened on one of her frequent checks when she found that her balance amount displayed on the computer screen had suddenly shot up by a huge amount. She stood staring at the computer screen for some time unable to believe what she was seeing.

She was so habituated to losing that she could not absorb the fact the Lady Luck had smiled on her at last. Not able to take in what she saw on the screen she stopped the game and logged herself out from the online bingo site. She thought that there must be something wrong with the computer or the internet or the site’s server conducting the game.

She logged in again into the online bingo site and checked the balance displayed on the screen again. Indeed the screen displayed that she had won a huge amount of cash in the last game she had played and the amount was being displayed after being added to her balance. She was totally unable comprehend as to how or when she had won the bingo but felt elated that she had been able to win.

She felt herself on cloud nine after winning such a huge prize. Such was her excitement at winning this huge amount of cash after patiently playing the game of online bingo for such a long time, that she forgot all about her daily chores in the exhilaration of the moment.

Patience and consistency in bingo definitely has its rewards.

A message for Bingo Community to Shoot for the Moon

We often hear about a certain phrase saying “Shoot for the moon”. In the world of playing cards, the hidden message behind this line is that you have to resort to all the possible tricks in the trade to win. But in the bingo community, “Shoot for the moon” means getting all the bingo numbers in the right place and attain the one goal—to win.

bingo community

bingo community

Yes. Whether it’s a full moon, half moon or crescent moon, your only concern is just about one thing. It’s about winning—or is it?

Another famous quote says, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars” It answers everything. Claiming your success in a bingo game is your one big, supreme reason why you are playing. But here’s another thing. Let us not forget the social essence of the game. You may either win or lose, but one thing that shall greatly take part in your success or failure is the atmosphere of the bingo room where you are playing. The atmosphere of certain bingo rooms is something that will excite you.

Bingo, like any other game, is a game of chance and anticipating possibilities is the real key to success. But unlike other games of chance, where you are left out in the corner licking your own wound, in bingo you will certainly find bingo roomies which are constantly on your side whether you lose or draw.

It’s an ultimate goal for every bingo player to hit a Progressive Jackpot and that is when shooting the moon really comes into play. For instance, a player needs a Coverall in 54 numbers or less to win a Progressive Jackpot. And oh by the way, your chances of winning are 1 in 18,738 for a card. Say, if there are 600 total cards in play in a bingo room, chances of one of those cards to win is only 3.21%

For that reason, simply depending on a lot of luck, to actually win a shining Progressive Jackpot makes a player ride over the moon and right off the swing! Chances of winning the Jackpots in any game are pretty slim and if you are going to hit the Progressive Jackpot, well—that’s what makes your game really momentous.

Bingo Progressive Jackpots stands out among the other games such as Slots, Poker and other Casino Jackpots because the odds are much better in bingo compared to them. Each day, the number of required bingo calls increases and instead of waiting for months or even a year in some casino games, bingo games tend to give the result much faster.

It’s also not at all a great risk to shoot for the moon and reach for the stars through bingo game. Bingo games take much longer for a player per game. The cost of cards are also lesser than what one might expect in case of other gambling options.

Do you ever dream of winning a jackpot? So your answer is yes than a good game to start chasing the stars and shooting for the moon to win big is a bingo game. And if you think winning a major Jackpot is way too impossible—think again. The odds might be in your favor.

TV Bingo – Bingo Game and the TV

The popularity of the game of bingo is increasing at a rapid pace all over the world. The growth of its popularity is due to its ability to provide entertainment to a person whenever he has some free time on his hand accompanied by the excitement of winning money while playing the game. The game of bingo is highly popular throughout the world, but it has achieved maximum popularity especially in the United Kingdom and in the United States. This popularity has been given a boost mainly by the rapid proliferation of the internet, its allied technology and the affordability of a computer. The easy availability of an internet connection helps everybody to set up his own game console and start playing online bingo. However the importance of the TV has also played a significant part in increasing the popularity and interest which are created by seeing this game being played on the TV. The minds of the viewers get influenced by the sight of players trying to win a huge cash prize in a game of TV bingo which make them wish that they also participate in the game. As a result, TV shows on the bingo game are still being telecast in the UK and the US to attract more and more new players to the game of bingo. The names and details of some of the TV shows are mentioned below.

The TV serial called “Bingo America”

The most popular TV Bingo show presently being telecast regularly in the United States and hosted by Patrick Duffy is the show called Bingo America. In this TV serial in each episode one male player and one female player compete against each other to win a jackpot of $100,000. They are joined by people in their homes who have downloaded and printed the cards from the GSN web site. Each number drawn has a question that has to be answered by the players. Money is won by a player when the player on the opposite side gives an incorrect answer. The bonus round for the $100,000 jackpot is played when there is a tie. The game captivates the audience and provides a lot of tension and excitement sometimes. The thrilling TV bingo game is very popular to both new and experienced bingo players and attracts new viewers as well.

The TV serial called “TV Bingo Night Live”

ITV telecasts a TV Bingo show called Bingo Night Live in UK. This game is played with printed cards by people sitting at their homes. The TV serial takes one hour to complete and offers both free games and games that can be played with actual money. It is worth playing with real money as the value of the Golden Jackpot can go up to 25,000 British Pounds. To participate in the game the players have to get themselves registered with the game website to get the cards for free. Michael Underwood and Melinda Messenger are the hosts who make jokes which are very funny and liven up the proceedings with their flirting.

The TV shows and serials can definitely help you to enjoy yourself if you like to play the bingo game on TV. But if you want to play online bingo, then there are a lot of sites you can choose from. You enjoy more because in an online bingo site you have a worldwide community of professional and new players who have the same intention as you have, that of playing bingo only.

Play live bingo on your mobile phone

Since its invention in the 1990s, the game of online live bingo had been confined to desktops and laptops. Not anymore. Presently, with the help of modern technology, it has spread to include mobile phones also. It can be downloaded to all types of mobile phones like Blackberry, Nokia, Apple iPhones and iPods and many others which use different operating systems. You can now participate in a game of bingo while travelling by car or a bus, or while sitting in a park and even in the midst of a dreadful party. You require a signal only to play the bingo game.

Live Bingo

Live Bingo

All the primary features like slot games and chat rooms are provided in online bingo games on a mobile phone.

Why do you play games on your mobile phone whenever you get a chance? It is because commuting to the workplace and back by public transport takes a lot of time and you play to pass this time. Those who spend very little time on travel have to visit relatives or go on sightseeing trips sometimes or other. You can play online bingo on your mobile phones and enjoy while you travel.

Maybe, your daily chores or jobs do not allow you to sit down in front of your desktop to have a game of your favourite online live bingo. It gets more frustrating when you have to wait for your turn to use the computer. Your mobile phone comes in very handy at this time and you can use it to play online bingo as well as carry on with your daily job. Playing online bingo on your mobile phone is more rewarding than reading a book especially when you win a bingo.

The first step to download the game is to provide your phone number to the bingo provider. When you click on the link sent to you through a text message, the game is downloaded into your mobile phone. Some sites send a text message containing a WAP link for downloading the game software in return to your message. If you prefer to play online live bingo without downloading the software onto your mobile phone, you will find many sites which offer this facility. Whatever you prefer to do, you can enquire with the service provider who will be too glad to help you.

You can find out from the service provider how to deposit money into your mobile phone account for playing bingo. Payment through both debit and credit cards are also acceptable to the service provider. Other sites offer the facility of payment through phone bills every month.

Sites also use the strategy of attracting new players by offering a free bonus without any deposit which helps you to check the credentials of the site before you decide to place a bet with your own money. This strategy has been very successful and is being replicated by all the sites.

Since mobile phones are very susceptible to lost connections, initially it was thought that online live bingo on mobile phones will not be successful. But on enquiry with mobile players, it has been found that even if you lose the connection for a few seconds you are you can still continue with the game. You still get the credit for the game even if the win occurred when the connection was lost.

The quality of the services is undergoing continuous development as an increasing number of people like to play bingo online on their handsets. Playing online bingo with the help of thought processes may not be a distant dream altogether.

Bingo Chat Rooms – The Chat and Chatter of the Bingo Site

Modern technology gave birth to games with convenience and easy access anytime and anywhere the player feels like playing. Just like online bingo sites that flourished on the web as people who want to play bingo grew exponentially. It makes you earn bonuses. How does it work in games played on online bingo sites? Are the bonus offers real?

Play Bingo

Play Bingo

Pay out in online bingo sites is close to 70% on real cash. You will earn the same regardless the amount of bonus money given. On a card-by-card basis, if you use your bonus money in playing, your pay out per card lowers.

· You cannot redeem bonus money as real cash. As you play bingo online, you will have to make deposits. You will also win and earn bonuses but you can spend bonuses only as last recourse.

· Bonus money discourages cash out in live bingo. On per card basis, it improves effective pay out. It will also be lost when you redeem your winnings. Most sites reset bonus money to $0 if you claim your winnings.

· Bonus money expires. There is bonus money offered in live bingo. The bonus money may come from deposits or chat games. To play bingo online with bonuses offered, they let it expire after 30 days.

· Scams detected in bingo bonuses. As mentioned earlier, you cannot redeem bonus money and disregarding the amount of bonus money in pay out makes me wonder more. So, what is the essence of having this bonus money if you play bingo? Will live bingo be more credible? It seems that earning bonuses is just an illusion to add value on their sites.

Looking at the brighter side, bonuses can also become valuable in sites with live bingo. Here is how bonus money becomes an advantage … you only have to know how it works.

This happens if as you play bingo, you decrease the bonus money in play. How will it happen? Thru redeeming cash, expiration of bonus money or spending it on promotions. Yet, the reality on payout never changes.

· The amount of bingo bonus is greater than the average bonus money. It is helpful if you get more bonus money than the average player does. The pay out of about 70% is distributed to real and bonus money. With the same pay out and let’ average bonus of 50% then the net payout 47%. You will get $35, which is 47% of $75. That $35 is also the 70% of $50. A 100% bonus on a $50 deposit while having average bonus of 50%, payout is in your advantage. However, this does not give you greater chances of winning but gives the ability to buy more cards.

· What is great with unused bonus? It lowers the average bonus.

Generally, bingo bonus encourages greater distribution of winnings. Truly remains an illusion if the net average bonus in play is greater than your bonus money. Claim your money if you win greater amount. Do not play with your deposits or bonus money but with your winnings. Now that live bingo games are flourishing over the internet, it provides more attraction than going to bingo halls.

More information on bingo chat room moderation

Are you a person who likes to play online bingo? People who love playing online bingo are habituated to enjoy these online games hugely as they normally make use of the chat rooms besides playing the online bingo game itself. Do you use the chat rooms while playing online bingo? Are you aware of the friendly gossip that goes on in the chat rooms? While using bingo chat room do you ever have any doubts about who oversees all the verbal traffic? Those of you, who use the chat room while playing online bingo, know very well the benefits of chat rooms by this time that flow of verbal traffic is controlled by the moderators. The moderator is known by different names like chat room host, facilitator, administrator or plain operator. The job done by him is very important to the functioning of the chat room.

The basic job of the moderator is to ensure that the users of the Bingo chat room are enjoying themselves, telling each other their experiences and stories and passing on information between themselves and their bingo friends. The conversation may be on any topic provided it is within the rules and regulations of the online bingo sites. The moderators lay down the rules and regulations required to accomplish this task. The rules and regulations are very similar to those found in social gatherings and online communications between two or more people. The rules and regulations cover good manners, etiquette, respect and common sense you need to have, for mutual communication and conversation.

The standard rules followed by most of the online bingo sites have the following characteristics:

· Upper case words or words marked in red colour represents shouted communication and are not allowed.

· Icons with sexual intonation or abusive icons of any type cannot be used in your conversation.

· Bingo Chat rooms cannot have offensive names.

· Disguises and masquerading as someone else are prohibited.

· Abusing or disrespecting others based on their age, creed colour, race, religion, gender, sexuality, intellectual prowess, or physical appearance is not tolerated.

· You are not allowed to use the site for marketing your products or services or for creating a spam.

You are advised to be aware and keep away from playing on those online bingo sites where the owners, employees or employers of rival online bingo sites register themselves as genuine bingo players and use the chat rooms to influence the players to leave this site and play on the sites they promote. Though you have all the liberty to choose any online bingo site which you like, it is unfair on the part of these people to circulate malicious and fictitious misinformation like payment problems or data security about the site.

This is the reason why the conversation in the bingo chat rooms is controlled by the moderators. The moderators act as a Big Brother and overlook the conversations taking place in the chat rooms of the online bingo site to prevent any untoward incidents. Before you feel upset with some admonition from any moderator and want to shout at him, calm down and think that the moderators are doing their job and they are there for your own good. Stop for a moment and go over what you have done to get rebuked and you will understand why the moderators in the bingo chat rooms of online bingo sites are needed.

Bingo Halls and Cinemas

When I was a nipper (as all smart stories begin) I remember vaguely, that native cinemas near American state were not doing well on movies, however some were turning into one thing else that I didn’t quite perceive. As a Saturday morning photos fan, I favoured getting to the cinema and was ravaged to seek out that on a Saturday trip to our native in Catford, South East London, in 1966, there appeared to be just one film. That film was referred to as “bingo”, didn’t enable kids in, and ne’er modified for following fifteen years! What was that blockbuster board game moving picture that recurrent every week?

Aaah i used to be so innocent in those days!

In fact there was an invention that had a dramatic result on individuals hard bent on Cinema from 1955 forager, a minimum of alb initio, the TV. Unimaginable to assume that the shrunken black and white indistinct set of beam pictures designed into a walnut wardrobe would have such a sway. If you could afford a TV, or going spherical to someone’s place that had one, it absolutely was low cost amusement.

Moreover until the 1960 there was a UK based “entertainment tax” to supply funds for the govt (originally for the primary World War) once you went bent on the cinema or theatre. This was scrapped in 1960, however the mix of the TV and reduced post-war incomes meant that the death knell for several cinemas had plumbed.

A lot of ad hoc cinemas within the Great Britain at the time reacted in numerous ways. So that some people dismantled a number of their cinemas and sold the land. Some re-opened to faucet into the new artefact wave of youth entertainment- the Bowling Alley (and the Lewisham one remains going sturdy today!). Others unfit, back to the past and have become dance/concert halls (with the appearance of rock n roll these were not getting to last long!). Whereas others embraced the new phenomenon… board game!

Some qualified their bets by keeping the venue as a twin purpose one- Bingo weekday and weekday, cinema alternative days, except diversion Saturday. Except for a short while board game was the salvation of the many of the venues.

Changing a cinema to a board game Hall was not that complicated:

1. Taking away the moving picture screen and make a stage.

2. Install necessary board game equipment and a couple of armed bandits (now referred to as slot machines!).

3. Improve the lighting in order that players might see their board game cards well.

4. Commutation with the stalls with tables and chairs.

5. If one wasn’t already gift, adding a bar or place for food/refreshments.

With the appearance of home computers, on-line board game, and plenty of alternative leisure and pleasures competitive for our time and cash, several bingo game Halls also eventually fell into decline and neglect.

However the sport of bingo game continues to grow in quality along with huge popularity and most of the people currently like the convenience of enjoying on-line. Simply don’t be tempted to yell “Bingo” once you next in your native cinema as a blast back to the past!

Bingo: The Old vs. the Young

Southampton University’s Psychology Department has recently concluded a study on the benefits of Bingo. They’ve found that Bingo helps improve hand-eye coordination, cognitive ability and social skills. It was also shown to have particularly good effects on the older players of the game. Those who regularly played the game maintained sharper minds and social skills by enjoying many an afternoon around a Bingo table.

The study found that Bingo players outperformed non-Bingo players in tests of memory, mental speed and information processing. The key, they found, was the time constraint built into the rules of Bingo. Players are required to process the number called and accurately mark off the correct square on their own sheets. The subjects who played developed and maintained their mental agility through repetition of this task. This was also the key to improved hand-eye coordination as the players had to mark their sheets correctly. The desire to win and beat any possibly competitors to calling, “BINGO,” gave the players the motivation to perform this task as quickly and so improved the speed of players across all tests.

Southampton’s test group consisted of 112 individuals. 56 of the test subjects were between the ages of 18 and 40. The other 56 were between the ages of 60 and 82. Half of each age bracket was asked to play Bingo on a regular basis. Tests were given to all participants before the start of the study. They were tested again at the end. As stated, the Bingo players outperformed the non-players across all tests. But what was especially interesting was that the older players often outperformed the younger players. The younger players were faster, but the older players were far more accurate. That data further supports the theory that games and Bingo in particular, are beneficial to aging populations.

Bingo fans have used the results found by the researchers at Southampton to help promote the playing of Bingo in retirement homes, community centers and other social areas frequented by seniors. The research has also been a boon to the online Bingo community. Online Bingo sites are growing in popularity, but they can now claim to help seniors across many different areas while also improving their computer skills.

Part of the benefit of Bingo comes from the fact that Bingo has a strong social aspect to it. Live Bingo is often played in community centers and common rooms with large groups of people, and online Bingo sites, understanding how important the social aspect of the game was, have incorporated chat rooms into their software. The social aspect of Bingo helps build and maintain important social skills, and the community centers and chat rooms have also become a marketplace for ideas and a killing ground for negative stereotypes.

All in all, the study is sure to be a boon to Bingo fans everywhere. Bingo, a time honored American pastime, was beginning to slip into obscurity as a game only fit for the baby-boomer population. Well, while it has shown that it is beneficial to seniors, it’s also shown that younger generations have something to prove. The test results seem to prove that the kids of this age “just aren’t what they used to be.” Well, are you going to let your grandma whip you in a game?

Reincarnation of the traditional bingo game

You will definitely be curios about connection of the popular dancing style and the bingo game. That is understandable as both topics are very different options. Any way the particular dancing style has become the most admired one among the people without any nationality, race, creed or cast. So the famous dancing style of the world, if I ask most probably your answer will be Gangnam style. And it has got he hearts of the young generation by steel grip. Though there are many styles prevailing in the society the new comer has become more popular than the others .so what is the connection with this Korean folk dance and the online bingo? The answer is here you can understand very easily if you have seen the video.

The song is no need to say attractive ant there are some pauses which gave the most effective features of the song and the dance he performs is an actions of rider. They are very simple and also easy to follow. So as a result many people selected this new easy to and but more thrilling style. The secret of the success of the song is not the creativity or the dance but the selection of the time for the release of the song and the dancing style. At that time there wasn’t any new trend for the people. They were fed up at that time as there is a need to have new creations in the field, so there was a vacuum for a new creation. As result the Gangnam style took that opportunity. So when you want to market some thing you must find the correct product as well as the need of the time

So the same truth should be introduced to the bingo game too. Those days you had to go out to play bingo as we mentioned before. With the introduction of clubs to play bingo the players got a bigger chance to play and the recent development is you can play the game online while enjoying all the facilities that you need .the game has along history and it is a very solid one but no one can predict about the future .so like the style of dancing bingo also should evolve otherwise there will be a challenge to the game in the near future, To achieve that they can create different types and stages of the game to catch the interest of the players. The game is very old and indeed it needs the attention of the young creatures to find new states of success. The traditional game should be given a fresh way of thinking to consolidate its huge players from going away as result of playing the same game over and over again.

Then the answer depends on the person or people who can reinvent the game or reshape like the Gangnam style created by the talented artist to capture the current market .This can be done with the increasing development of the technology. It makes new ways and means to create novel systems. As the game has got on to the climax with the invention of the online bingo the people are expecting more and more exciting and easy things to do with. The future of this game can be made more hopeful if they can introduce Gangnam style here too.

Glimmer of hope for American Bingo lovers

Different groups called the Alabama New South Coalition and the Alabama Democratic Conference held rallies at in Washington, in order to try to convince the administration to remove the ban on playing online bingo and to support the bingo industry. Another group called the Alabama Legislative Black Caucus and most of the people, who had lost their jobs due to the ban on gambling, took part in the rally also. Ross and Bobby Singleton and, two known Democrat Senators, who were part of the activity for government Committee, led the rallies and asked the people to vote in favor of the American bingo machines.

In the Alabama state all earlier legislations to allow, had been turned down by the State House, the object of the demonstration was to ask for votes to alter this legislation to legalize gambling in the state by marching through Washington and ending the march at the State House.

Governor and the Alabama High Court were mainly responsible for imposing the ban in the state and the rally was organized to protest against this ban.

A special team had been made earlier by Governor Riley to close down all casinos in the state of Alabama, except the Indian casinos which were governed by the federal court, as slot machines and electronic bingo machines had been declared illegal by the Alabama state high court,

The Democratic Party senators claimed that the ban against gambling had created thousands of jobless people. These people had dedicated all their years operating the gambling machines thus building lifelong careers in this industry and had no exposure to any other profession. With gambling being declared illegal, they were rendered jobless.

But the press secretary working for Governor Riley was of the view that if gambling was declared legal, then instead of boosting the prosperity of local community, it would only cause the economy to collapse. In his opinion, the owners of the casinos were trying to bring in more and more Democrats into their fold with the hope that a government led by Democrats would be voted into power in the coming month of November who would make gambling legal. The casino owners would then be able to earn millions of dollars at the expense of the Alabamians.

The press secretary said that the casino owners had been sending the money earned from the Alabamians, to their bosses who lived outside the state and huge economic, social and political price had been paid by states that had made gambling legal. The downturn of the local economy due to the exit of dollars to other states had cost the people their jobs. The loss of jobs had affected the society adversely, and criminal activities had increased. The political situation, where the gambling houses would dictate terms to the government was totally unacceptable to the Governor.

The argument given by the Chairwoman of the government Committee, Val Goodson, was that the ban on any kind of gambling was in effect causing the people to lose their jobs. Those who had lost their jobs in the state of Alabama, had gone to find employment. As the number of working people decreased in the state, so would the government’s earning from taxes.

It has been argued by Singleton, as well as Goodson and also by Ross that they had no other option but to use voting as an instrument to fight the task force made by Governor Riley which had impinged on the democratic rights of the masses.

The view held by certain sections of people was that the ban on gambling, especially the bingo gaming, was being used by the Democrats as an issue to garner more votes without any regard for the problem itself. It was denied by a committee member who said the issue was benefiting neither the Democrats nor the Republicans. It was more to do with the conditions relating to work and the gambling industry the people would have to decide whether to vote for or against the issue.

Play Online Game of Bingo and make New Friends

The game of bingo has been around for the last 500 years. The Italian people should get a vote of thanks for inventing this wonderful and hugely popular game which is played by hundreds of people throughout the world today. The bingo game today has a number of different versions which the people play for their enjoyment. By playing the online version of the bingo game, people are able to make new friends and money at the same time.

The popularity of the online bingo game has increased because more and more people start talking to each other, sharing their personal views and other experiences thus creating a bond between themselves. As they play the online bingo game together, they communicate with each other through the chat rooms and other such facilities provided by the online bingo sites. New players are able to clear their doubts about the game by chatting to older players who explain the rules and strategies needed to win money from playing online bingo. The game is so much fun and easy to play that people from all age groups, from very young to very old, can all participate in it. As two people chat and play online bingo together, a strong bond of friendship develops between them. People living far away from their families can talk to them on online bingo chat rooms. Thus bingo helps society as a whole by bringing people together.

Age is no bar for people to play a game of bingo. Adults as well as children can play this game. Children specially find this bingo game very attractive as they enjoy playing the game while talking between them. Just like the Germans did in the sixteenth century, the game of bingo can be used to teach mathematics to children to boost their mental skills. Thus the game of bingo has an educational side to it too. Both the young and the old can make new friends with the help of online bingo. Old people, who are lonely, can make friends and chat with them while engaged in a game of online bingo, or they can visit bingo halls where they can meet people of their age and befriend them while taking part in the same bingo game.

The real-life bingo halls which have been catering to the people for such a long time are starting to have stiff competition from the online bingo sites which have come up with the help of the Internet. Just like the old fashioned bingo halls where you can meet and talk to friends, the online bingo sites offer chat rooms where friends can talk with each other while enjoying the game of bingo. The chat rooms of the online bingo sites allow people to talk to friends and relatives about everything on earth. The greatest experience for anybody would be to befriend someone in the chat rooms of an online bingo site and then meet the person face to face on the street.

It is very easy to prolong friendships by playing bingo on online bingo sites. Some of the other pastimes or hobbies are so individual oriented that you cannot make friends easily by sharing them with other people. But playing bingo gives a different kind of entertainment. A visit to a bingo hall or an online bingo site will expose the player to people they have never met before, who will become friends, give advise, share their experiences and help the player enjoy the visit. So if anyone feels lonely and sad, then the person should immediately pay a visit to a real-life bingo hall or an online bingo site in search of friends with whom the person can liven up his life and spirit.

Points of interest in a Online Bingo site

In 1996, the Bingo Act laid down in the UK, changed the classification of the bingo game from a game for gambling to a game for recreation. But as far as the levy of taxes on online bingo sites were concerned, they remained the same as per gambling laws.

online-bingo

Millions of people across the world play online bingo everyday on the Internet, which has further boosted the existing 60 year old popularity of the bingo game.

The online bingo sites are under huge pressure to make the best services available to the large number of competing players as otherwise they would have to close down. The mandatory services that an online bingo site should provide are given below.

To choose the best online bingo sites, a new player looking for information on online bingo sites, will be able to decide better by considering the following:

1. Quality and number of bingo games on offer: The features of the games on offer are various:

· A good number of both the 75-ball and 90-ball games should be on offer by any decent online bingo site. To retain the interest of the players in the interval between two main bingo games a decent site should offer other games like keno and slot-machine games. Without these, the online bingo site becomes unpopular, with less people playing and less prize money being involved.

· The online bingo games should have expertly designed graphics which can be easily handled by the player’s computer.

· Most of the online bingo games should have their entry price usually on the lower side between the range from $0.10 to $0.50 and not more. Games with jackpots may be higher priced as an exception.

· Tournaments and progressive jackpots should be offered by the online bingo site regularly.

· Online bingo sites should have schemes where loyalties and rewards are available.

2. Online bingo sites should offer incentives for the promotion of the game:

· All new players should be offered a bonus as a welcome gesture by all online bingo sites which seriously want to do business.

· Players should play on those online bingo sites which offer promotions like bonuses on deposits. Sites like these are in plenty to choose from.

· Referral bonuses should be offered to players by the best online bingo sites for introducing new players to the site.

3. More about prizes:

· In order to offer more excitement and a large prize, sometimes almost half a million dollars, online bingo sites should have a minimum of one game where a progressive jackpot is on offer.

· A minimum of one tournament for winning a big prize should be held per week or month.

· To win some great prize money over and above the money to be won in a regular bingo game, the best online bingo sites should have chat rooms with more games on offer for the player.

4. Forums for discussion, information from chat rooms and services available to players:

· A player should be able to access the online bingo site’s helpdesk or service desk on a 24-hour basis without which the site may be considered below normal standards.

· Online bingo sites should have the best software running on their machine to make sure that the player can play without any hindrance. In the case of a player moving away or a lost connection, the software should be running the auto-daub feature to mark the cards.

· In some of the online bingo sites the color of the cards change when only three cards out of several remain. This change signifies that the end of the game is near and enhances the feeling of excitement.

· A bingo player should play bingo only on those online bingo sites which presently allow the player to play more than one game simultaneously.

· A new player should have access to discussions and reviews related to the bingo game in general, and the online bingo site in particular, to help him to make his own decisions. But the player should always be wary of those online bingo sites which have shady chat rooms and biased reviews reeking of self promotion.

To choose the most suitable bingo site to play on, the information given above can be used to check the credibility of the online bingo site. To help the player derive the maximum enjoyment out of a game of bingo, the online bingo site should always provide incentives, ensure smooth play, offer chat rooms and discussion forums par excellence, and give access to round-the-clock helpdesk services.

Chat with friends while playing Online Bingo

Society benefits from Chat rooms offered by online bingo sites. Let’s see how?

An introduction to Bingo Chat rooms

People derive a lot of excitement from gambling. Unlike other games in the gambling industry, online bingo benefits the society when players chat with their friends whom they get to know in the chat rooms. The players are also able to meet new people and befriend them with the help of these chat rooms.

Despite the ban clamped on bingo by the laws of the United States government, online bingo has become very popular with the gambling industry in America.

About five years ago, people used the internet only for activities which did not have any relation with others. As web technologies became more efficient, people started using the internet for socializing as well as other activities. As a matter of fact, some people nowadays use the internet extensively for communicating with friends and near and dear ones.

Today, in the 21st century, sitting at home, it is wonderful to be able to connect with millions of people throughout the entire world with the help of internet.

The recent trend of people to use internet for socializing has increased internet traffic manifold. All websites, including those concerned with gambling, are trying to increase their usage by taking advantage of this situation. Online bingo sites are no exceptions in this matter.

In order not to lose dedicated customers, all online companies engaged in gambling, especially the online bingo sites have to make the facility of socializing available to the players by default.

The chat facility offered by online bingo sites

In the earlier days, players communicated with each other with the help of facilities like MSN. Unlike the online bingo sites of today, surprisingly, the earlier online bingo sites did not have the option for the players to chat with one another.

The online bingo sites soon realized that, while playing, the players were chatting amongst themselves with the help of other sites. This prompted these sites to start their own chatting facilities to increase their popularity and to rope in more new players.

Two kinds of chat rooms are available to the players in the latest online bingo sites. Open chat rooms are there for everyone to use, while private chat rooms are used by a group of players for themselves only.

The online bingo sites have Chat Hosts or Chat Moderators who introduce people to others and help the conversations to flow evenly. They prevent anyone player from dominating the conversation and also help the players in having fun and excitement. They also supervise the chat room games which are played in the intermission between two bingo games.

Nowadays, players avoid those online bingo sites which do not have Chat Hosts or Chat Moderators as the player does not get the same fun and excitement.

The recent trend of Chat rooms with webcams

The advent of larger internet bandwidths, new generation broadband and the latest video technologies, chat rooms are using webcams in increasing numbers. Needless to say, to keep up with modern requirements, the online bingo sites have to set up video communications starting with their small private chat rooms and then later on including the main chat rooms also.

The introduction of webcams in the chat rooms will enable players to see each other while playing a game of online bingo. Players would now have to hide their feelings so as not to give themselves away. As a futuristic trend, some players who would like to be seen by others as an iconic figure, may be required to upload a thumbnail picture onto the online bingo site. This may not be compulsory for other players.

The future of Bingo chat rooms

The revolution to the internet brought about by Web 2.0 has made its presence felt in the online bingo rooms also. It may happen in the near future, that players, who have been iconic stature, are asked to call out the numbers just like that in the real-life bingo hall scenarios.

As in real-life bingo games, as an alternate arrangement, callers visible through webcams, may be deputed in online bingo sites to give an aura of realism to the bingo game.

It is very difficult to predict with any kind of authority what the future holds for online bingo sites as far as social benefits are concerned. Some changes that may possibly occur are given below.

· Using webcams the players will be able see and talk to each other.

· Over the internet, players will be able to order drinks, foodstuff and gifts for themselves and their fellow players just as it happens in the real-life bingo halls.

· Online bingo sites will be able to tie up with restaurants and gift shops so that the orders placed by the players for themselves and their fellow players will be delivered directly to their homes.

The opportunities that are going to be presented by the development of technology and the internet in the coming days are quite mind boggling. Though it sounds a bit far-fetched, it may happen that while playing a game of online bingo, waiting for the delivery boy will no more be required and computers themselves will be sufficient to deliver the items ordered over the internet. It may be possible to transport people over the internet as the character called Scotty was done in Star Trek.
