Why Are People Playing Online Bingo

Jul 22, 2008
Bingo has enthralled people for centuries and continues to do so. It's true that although this thrilling game has undergone several adaptations since its origins as a lottery in 1530, the central principle of the game has remained unchanged. Despite these adaptations Bingo continues to inculcate a feeling of collective friendship, fun, bonding and a spirit of community among its millions of avid fans that play the game throughout the world.

Bingo enjoys such popularity that according to estimates, almost $ 100 million is spent on the game each week in North America alone, which would translate into billions of dollars in this market.

Another reason for Bingo's widespread popularity around the world is because it is an extremely easy game to play and the rewards not only include big prize money but also the fun, suspense, anticipation and excitement that go with it. Perhaps, one of the biggest revolutionary changes in the world of Bingo, was the emergence of the game online.

With millions of internet users, the availability of online Bingo has met with overwhelming success and this recent development has led to a large number of online Bingo web sites. Unlike other popular PC games where you win points or a few words of encouragement, such as "Congratulations, you win", online Bingo gives you the chance to win huge jackpots that could run in the tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention the thrills that go with it.

The reason why thousands of people are playing online Bingo today is because they can do so in the privacy, convenience and comfort of their homes, with family and friends. Although, Bingo is a game that revolves around a community of players regardless of age, sex or creed, the same spirit of togetherness can be enjoyed when you join a community on an online Bingo site.

Another big attraction of online Bingo is that it gives you the opportunity to play with other like-minded people, make new friends around the world and of course, the chance to win big money.

With the unprecedented number of new online Bingo sites offering different and large sums of prize money, Bingo players now have a wide choice of online Bingo options to choose from. Some sites not only offer cash in prize money but also reward winners with other high value, attractive prizes such as luxury holidays and more.

There are of course, several other reasons why people are playing online Bingo, because like most of us, life today is busy and hectic, both at home and work which leaves them very little time for any other forms of entertainment. To enjoy Bingo in a club or hall, one would need to spend an entire evening away from home. On the other hand, online Bingo sites are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and throughout the year.

This gives players the opportunity to fit in a game of online Bingo in their busy schedules, whenever they have a few minutes to spare. If you are a diehard Bingo fan, take your chances with online Bingo. Who knows, lady luck may flash her big smile off that PC screen of yours.
