Sweet Tasting Candy Bingo Fun

Our taste buds love the taste of sweet things, candy, fizzy drinks chocolate bars and it’s hard to imagine a time when sweet foods were not part of our diet. Sweet foods date back to ancient times when people discovered that the well-guarded contents of a bee’s hive contain sweet tasting honey. Getting hold of this favored food may have been dangerous but the rewards were unrivalled by another other food in our diets. The first candy bars (or closest comparison) comprised of nuts and fruits that were rolled in honey. The manufacturing of sugar during the middle ages brought candy to the people but the cost was so prohibitive that is was reserved for the upper classes, those with money. As the price of manufacturing sugar was reduced in the seventeenth century, hard candy became popular within the masses and led to the modern day “sweet tooth” that sees us enjoy candy nearly every day.

A Trip down memory lane in the history of Bingo!

While Bingoblog header CB as we know it today is regarded as a very easy game to play, one cannot say the same on the origins and development of the game. One cannot expect and clear and concise description of the history of Bingo, as vague accounts and inconsistencies continued through its’ development. In fact, questions on who came up with the concept of Bingo and where it all began are still asked to this day.

The roots of the modern game as we know it today, go back to the 16th century Italy, where the first ever chance game was introduced as a lottery game with the name of ‘Lo Giuoco del Lotto D’Italia’.  After almost two centuries, the game made it’s way to France where it enjoyed particular success; with the game even referred to as Le Lotto among the French society who played the game.  The way Le Lotto was played was quite simple to grasp.  Special cards were divided into three rows and nine columns.  Each of the three columns consist of 10 numbers, while each column had five random numbers and four blank spaces in it.  Each player had a different lotto card used to mark the number announced by the caller.  The winner would be determined on who would cover one row first.5

By the end of the 19th century, the Lotto game continued to spread around Europe, even starting to being introduced as an educational Children’s game in Germany.  A very similar game to the Lotto Game made it’s way to the United States, and it’s exactly there where the name of ‘Bingo’ originated from…and quite by chance really.  I say by chance because the initial name of the game we know as Bingo today; was originally called ‘Beano’, where players placed beans on their cards to mark the called number.  ‘Beano’ was the word players yelled when completing a full row FIRST.  Incidentally in one game, one player shouted ‘Bingo’ instead.  It was then when a New Yorker salesman by the name of Edwin S. Lone decided to develop a new game and giving it the name BINGO.

By the 1940’s all of the United States seemed to be enjoying Bingo.  Being relatively easy going and fun, it was accessible at home, charity events and similar social events.  Today Bingo and online Bingo is one of the most popular chance games in the world being played throughout the United States, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world.

And as technology is becoming more and more sophisticated, so is Bingo which as a result of it’s friendly and interactive nature; is able to to lend itself easily to the web which has without a shred of doubt been a huge contributing factor in it’s continued growth and development in today’s digital age.

Get more from your Bingo site!

Everyone loves to get more for their money and when it comes to playing online bingo, why should it be any different?

Most bingo sites offer great introductory bonuses when you sign up, 300%, 400% and more just to get you playing but these great bonuses soon dry up and leave you feeling unwanted as a player. With meagre reload bonuses of 10%, 20% or 30% when you fund as a regular player, it’s time to move on to the next new bingo site and another great introductory offer. Most players now find themselves hopping between whichever bingo site offers the best bonus that day, if the bingo sites does not reward their loyalty, then why should players be loyal to the site?

With so many sites now belonging to two or 3 major bingo networks, the games and prizes are the same wherever you play, removing the individuality of the bingo sites and the exclusive fun they offer. This in turn makes online bingo dull, boring and no longer the interactive fun pastime that so many of us love. Ask yourself, when did you last login to play bingo and feel that you were part of a warm welcoming bingo community?

Great bonuses are all good and well, but do you have to jump through hoops and play through crazy amounts just to be able to withdraw your winnings? Wagering requirements are the quietly hidden away rule that most bingo sites now employ to ensure that withdrawing your winnings is so complicated and hard work that the majority of players just playing away anything they win. A 300% bonus sounds great until your look deeper and see that you have a 3x wagering requirement. That means that you have to play through a crazy amount before you can withdraw what remains of your winnings.

It’s not all gloom and doom though, at CyberBingo we have led the way in online bingo fun since 1996, providing our players with the very best online bingo experience. Built by players for players, enjoyment always comes first at CyberBingo and we give our players fantastic bonuses every time they fund, exclusive games and promotions to play and best of all we have absolutely No Wagering Requirements to keep them from their winnings.
