Every bingo players’ worst nightmare is surely that they excitedly call Bingo down at their local bingo hall of choice – and their call goes unheard. Their excitement soon turns to despair as that jackpot they were eagerly anticipating rapidly disappears in front of their eyes.
Way back in 2009 that very situation happened to one forlorn player who in spite of being heard shout Bingo by fellow players and a steward missed out on the big money. How can this be? Well it’s all down to the rules of the live bingo games. Once the caller has moved on to shout out the next number all previous claims are void.
So the moral of this story is that you must pay attention – or trust to the relative safety of online bingo. Why not leave the risk of the live bingo halls behind and join the online bingo community? The mechanics of playing online bingo are very different to the more traditional game. Your numbers are always marked off for you automatically and as soon as bingo is achieved the call is made on your behalf thus eliminating the chance of you missing it. For those who prefer to be more involved in the excitement you are often offered the opportunity of manually marking off your numbers. The software for the game is still keeping track of proceedings so that it is impossible for a player to miss out on their winnings.
Apart from the obvious advantage of this, (which is not being left out of pocket), with the software overseeing the game you are safe to play multiple cards without the fear of missing your call. And we all know that the more cards you play the bigger your chance of winning.
And that is not the only advantage of online bingo. If you think of the effort involved in getting ready to go down to your local bingo hall, in all weathers, sometimes after dark and having to wait at the bus stop or get the car out, the lure of online bingo looms large. Played from your armchair, or even your bed, in the warmth and comfort of your own home, there is no getting ready – you can play in your onesie if you so desire, or covered in a face mask whilst dyeing your hair. The most preparation needed is perhaps putting on the kettle or opening a bottle of wine.
Online you can have free games and start-up bonuses; you don’t have to pay out a penny to be in with a chance. You can play the game anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection and a device. So many places offer free Wi-Fi access these days which increases your range of options. It can also be played on a Smartphone.
So forget your bingo nightmare and rest assured that your jackpot is in safe hands with online bingo. Why not join the community today and begin to reap the benefits?
