Why play bingo online?

| By | Category: Bingo


The question of why to play bingo online is easily answered as there are many aspects that attract all different sorts of people. It is true that the stereotypical idea of a bingo player is an older woman with lots of makeup and brightly dyed hair. It is also true that the largest percentage of online players is made up of ladies between the ages of 40 and 70. However, who is to say this is a bad thing? And who is to say that that should put other demographics off the idea of bingo?

The beauty of online bingo is that if you want to keep it private, it can be. Your details are kept safe online and you don’t have to tell any of your friends in the real world if you truly find it embarrassing. There is no reason why you should find it embarrassing, whoever you are. Over 60% of players in the UK are under the age of 45 years old and the percentage of male players is also on the rise. Possibly the main aspect that attracts younger players is the social side of bingo. It has always been a very social game which online manufacturers have used to their advantage by introducing chat rooms and forums where players can talk to each other as well as live chats in games.

For the elderly who find they can no longer get down to their local bingo hall, online playing is the perfect way for them to enjoy what they have been doing for the last twenty years or however long it may have been. It is also an excellent opportunity for those who have never played to brighten their days a little with easy to follow rules and the advantage of free games where you can practice and get to know how all of the functions work.

Finally, it is immense fun. It is less ‘dangerous’ than other forms of gambling as it is not quite so easy to get addicted to for most people and it can be a great way to spend your lunchtime break, fill in time whilst your waiting for dinner to cook or a quick game before you turn your light out.
