Internet has another lure now. And that goes by the name of Bingo. Online Bingo is the latest craze amongst the gaming fraternity who have decided to give the cars and bikes and the guns and tanks a miss and settle for something as sensationally sedate as Bingo.
Bingo is an indoor game, quite similar to Lotto. It is a game of chance, wherein you have Bingo cards with numbers with you. Numbers are called out at random and you have to tick off the corresponding numbers in your card. The first person to complete ticking off the numbers in a particular order wins the game. Isn’t it a wonder, how something as simple has fired the imagination of countless millions across the world.
The Internet abounds in Bingo web sites, both free and paid, for you to engage in some wholesome fun with players from around the world.
At the online Bingo stops that are free, you do not need to tender any monetary deposit to register and be eligible for a round of Bingo. Besides being free, these sites sometimes give you a chance to try your jackpot luck. However, there are generally terms and conditions attached with these contests. But don’t fret! At the free Bingo online sites, you might just be required to promote the particular site to the most number of people to be able to take part in the jackpot contest.
In fact, you can also expect to bag some cash bonus if you can rope in more members to the site.
Online Bingo is at its best at these sites. Not only do you get to indulge in some heady Bingo blitz for free, but you are also given a chance to earn some extra buck.
The paid Bingo sites are good stopovers too. There are many sites that offer regular jackpot contests but you need to pay to be able to take part in these contests.
Playing Bingo online is not much different than the traditional paper and pen mode. The computer will call the numbers and they will be shown on the top left corner of the screen. But there’s no room for cheating here, for the computer has a record of the numbers on your Bingo card.
Playing Bingo online won’t entail overhauling your entire PC setup. A computer and Internet connectivity are all you need. Most Bingo games are Macromedia Flash based, while there are some that require you to download some software from the site. Not much considering the oodles of fun that await you.
Another lure of playing Bingo online is the chance you get to mingle with players from all around the globe. Most of the Bingo sites house chat groups so that you can strike up some associations while at play. Gives you that feeling of belonging to a community too.
Online Bingo has caught on and is spreading like wild fire.
