As we run an online bingo site we regularly as part of our daily tasks watch what is happening in both the online bingo and land-based bingo world. One fact that does strike us is the rude health that the game of Bingo enjoys around the world.
Although playing Online Bingo in the USA is not allowed, the land-based game attracts attention. Land-based Bingo is widely played with a lot of Charity Bingo games being played to support various community projects.
Bingo raises funds for Education, Army Veterans as well as Fire Departments and Education. It is heartening to see that Bingo being enjoyed by so many in far-flung places.
We have even seen listings on Google for Bingo Games in Saudi Arabia. Granted that is for the expat community and there are no monetary prizes, but it does go to show how wide the appeal for the game of bingo is.
British Bingo players enjoy the best of all worlds. The land-based Bingo Clubs cater to hundreds of thousands of players with massive jackpots and the online bingo scene is a licensed and regulated one.
Online Bingo players in the United Kingdom are legally protected and enjoy the best bingo games as well as bingo jackpots online.
It is no surprise that the top online bingo rooms are concentrated on marketing their bingo products to players in the United Kingdom. The choice of online bingo venue is vast and the rooms compete with each other offering a lot of bonuses and prizes.
Recently we noted that a Car was given away by a popular webcam bingo site (the only one in existence as far as we know).We are looking forward to seeing the day that Bingo becomes regulated so that USA Bingo players can also enjoy this most social of games online.
It seems daft that bingo games played online quite legally in one part of the civilized world and in the other part it is deemed illegal.
Mobile Bingo games have also become increasingly popular in recent times.
UK Mobile Bingo sites have catered to players for some time already but the advance in Smartphone technology and the ability to connect anywhere nowadays, even on the Tube allow Bingo players to log on and play all sorts of games from all sorts of places.
There are obvious interests involved in not allowing the game to be legal online but at the end of the day, the only loser in the situation as far as we can tell is the bingo player as well as the Federal Government who are not gaining revenue from companies.
Until that day arrives it is heartening to see that the game of Bingo continues to be a favourite way to entertain and raise funds for good causes.
