With so many exciting bingo prizes up for grabs these days, you no longer have to be tied behind your desktop to enjoy one of the world’s favourite past-times.
Most of us have heard the stereotype that bingo is some game that’s only played by old people in church basements, so let’s avoid rehashing it further. This stereotype is definitely outdated since bingo now offers plenty of different ways to enjoy the game. That said, let’s cover five great ways that you can play bingo.
The handy smartphone has made its way into basically every type of gaming these days. And thankfully, bingo is no exception since people can play for free or real money. More and more bingo sites are becoming compatible with smartphones, offering Android, iPhone, Windows Phone and/or Samsung apps. Just visit the mobile section of the site that you’re interested in and get started!
Have an iPad or Android tablet? Then you certainly won’t be left out of the mobile bingo craze either. Just like smartphones, many online bingo rooms now cater to tablet owners too. Some people like playing bingo through tablets more than smartphones because the screen is bigger and they’re almost as convenient. But whatever your cup of tea is, just note that you can use different mobile devices to play bingo.
There’s no more tried-and-true way for cyber players to enjoy the game than through their desktop or laptop computer. Many have been playing online bingo this way for years because desktops/laptops allow you to play from the comfort of your own home. Mac and PC laptops have the added advantage in that they’re fairly portable, though nowhere near as much as a mobile device. In any case, it doesn’t seem like the popularity of desktop and laptop bingo has died down any.
4. Huge Bingo Parlors
Ready for the ultimate bingo experience? Then hit the road and visit one of the massive bingo parlors found around the world.
Connecticut’s Foxwoods Casino features a bingo hall with over 4,000 seats! This gigantic room hosts two different sessions – one in the morning and one in the evening – and many people reserve their seats in advance.
Other huge bingo venues that offer an amazing live experience include California’s San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino, England’s Gala Bingo Peterborough Westfield, North Carolina’s Cherokee Tribal Bingo Hall and New York’s Turning Stone Resort & Casino.
5. Community Buildings/Churches
Okay, so this article has come full circle and back to the stereotype that we tried so hard to resist. But there’s a reason why the non-bingo playing population thinks that the game revolves around church basements and rural community buildings. That’s because these are also common places where bingo fanatics gather. Many treat the game as a social affair, so it’s always great to get together with other players and mingle. Plus, churches like to use bingo as a fundraiser because it’s quite effective at drawing players.
