Understanding The Features Of An Online Bingo Site

Sep 2, 2008
Whenever you go online and search the Internet, you will see a number of different types of websites. For most people, we can generally look at the layout of the website, play around a little, and eventually figure out how to use the features of said website.

With all of the different web site designers trying to outdo one another, we may find that sometimes they are so new-fangled we might feel we need a manual to figure out the features of one of our trusted sites.

Understanding the general features found at online Bingo websites will help you know how to recognise and use them whenever you peruse the web in hopes of playing a quick game of online Bingo.

All online Bingo websites will have a registration feature which will want you to put in your personal information and register with them. This feature is used to gain your personal information, so they can have it to help distribute future prizes you may win and also to allow them to report large winnings to the proper authorities.

It is also necessary when using this feature to give them either a bank account number or your credit card information. Some sites use the PayPal feature for deductions for playing and for credits if you win on their site.

At this point on the website, you will also be given or get to choose a screen name and password for current and future play. Please remember to write these down for future use!

Another feature of online Bingo websites includes the online chatting. Many people play these online games simply so they can enjoy interaction with others. Online chatting will be available to you and you will find that many players enjoy this aspect of the game.

Normally, there will be a text box somewhere on your screen that you can type into. Generally, you can move these at your will and also minimize them. What you write is normally in a different color than those that are chatting with you. You will also see the screen names of those typing and they will see your name as you type. Remember to be polite and use good taste when typing on these websites. You never know who may be on the other end of the line and wouldn't want to offend anyone with something you say. You may find that this is one feature that distracts you from watching your cards, if so, simply minimize and use as needed during your online gaming experience.

Another feature is the screen that displays your Bingo cards and the numbers that are being called. This screen will look different from site to site, but generally you will have anywhere from 1 to 3 cards that are in the middle or off to one side of the screen. On some websites you can move them around to where you prefer them. The numbers that are being called will generally pop up in some type of small box and stay on the screen so you can see them during the game. This is one of the positive aspects of online Bingo when compared to Bingo an a hall. Many people find that it's easier to see everyone when it is combined all on one computer screen, therefore enhancing their Bingo playing experience.

If you understand these three main features of online Bingo sites, then you should have no trouble jumping into the exciting world of online Bingo. Just remember, you must register and remember your screen name and password, know how to manipulate the screen that has your all-important Bingo cards and call numbers, and understand the basics of online chatting!
