Online Bingo - My Experiences

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 90

Trying online bingo was something I decided to do for a few reasons. I keep on hearing all sorts of folks saying just how much fun they find it. Secondly, bingo is always being advertised on box and radio. Finally, our local bingo hall had recently closed down. What used to be a grand looking social hotspot, is now a dull looking building with no purpose. Internet bingo had intrigued me and I was keen to see what all the fuss was about.

My nana was one of the biggest bingo players I've known; going to her bingo hall in town right in to her final years. I wonder if she would have used online bingo as a replacement for the old bingo hall. Of course there was no internet bingo available when she was still with us. A guy I know used to play bingo when he was at college. I think he thought it was funny. We were discussing recently my nanny's love for bingo and if she'd like online bingo. No longer at university he now plays online bingo at the weekend. He concluded the reason why my grannie had loved the old bingo hall so much was because of the social aspect. However he did say that if she were alive today then she very well might have started playing bingo online. He mentioned that internet bingo also has the same social elements of the old bingo hall as well as the excitement of waiting for your numbers to be called. Interested, I decided to find out what he was talking about for myself.

Chat rooms are a feature of most online bingo sites. Thanks to the natter rooms on the online bingo site I could chit-chat to other players as I played. Even though you are playing online bingo at the same time, the gossip rooms are quite similar to what you might find at other chatter rooms on the web. I was very pleased to learn that everyone on the bingo sites are very friendly and said hello as soon as I arrived. I always had the impression that chatter rooms on the web were a bit dodgy but I really liked chatting away with people I didn't know while playing online bingo. It was great to have other people to talk to although the topics of conversation were generally about family, work and of course online bingo. As I went back to the same old online bingo site time and time again, just like at nan's old bingo hall, it became clear that there were players that kept coming back. Frequenters to the chat room would ask nice sociable questions like how the other players husbands were doing. If some of the other regular online bingo payers weren't there when I was I would often find myself missing them. I enjoyed talking to the other people.

I spoke to a girlfriend of mine who is about 25 and plays bingo online what she thought the big draw of internet bingo was. She didn't seem to think it was the social element, she already had lots of chums in the real world. There were several reasons she said that attracted her to online bingo. First off, her thoughts were that it seemed a bit odd for people in their 20s to be in a bingo hall. She said it conjured up images of blue rinsed gossiping grannies. Something very far from her. Now she can play bingo and be free of people judging her. In effect, it was a kind of dirty secret, though after playing bingo online myself, I couldn't see why anyone would think negatively of it as online bingo was such good fun! Second of all, she could play online bingo where ever she wanted and wearing whatever she had on. Bingo sites are time-saving. You are only able to play at bingo halls during a few hours in the evening when it's open. The great thing about internet bingo is that you can play it whenever is best for you.

It is upsetting to see bingo halls closing but it looks like the internet is the way forward. A number of players will continue to fight on and play at the bingo halls, but all the same fun can now be had online. It's great that you can meet your buddies on a bingo site, just like at traditional halls. Internet bingo is always on. You can just log off when you're done. Finally the thrill is the same, and often, even though the prizes often not as great, bingo provides a brilliant way to spend an evening with like minded people.
