Making the switch to online bingo: What you need to know

Who doesn’t love playing bingo in a bingo hall? You’ve got the crowds. You’ve got the noise. You’ve got predictable prize pools.

For all the same reasons that people love brick-and-mortar bingo halls, online bingo players prefer online bingo rooms to the traditional bingo hall.

No crowds to deal with—it’s just you and your computer from the comfort of your own home. No noise—go blast your music or play bingo in complete silence. And unpredictable prize pools—you never know how many people might be online at the same time, pushing the next online bingo prize to heights regular bingo halls could only dream of.

Today, we’re going to look at everything you need to know to switch from playing bingo in a bingo room to playing online bingo.

Online bingo is fast
Put your bingo dabbers away. They won’t work on your laptop screen (unless your goal is to ruin your laptop screen). When you play online bingo, the online bingo software will take care of stamping your card for you. That’s great news for those who love to win fast, and especially amazing news for those who love to play several cards at the same time.

But don’t sit back and let the computer do all the work for you. In most online bingo halls, you’ll need to pay attention to your cards and actually yell “Bingo!” when you’ve filled a row. Of course, when we say, “yell Bingo,” we actually mean press a button in the software. So don’t let things run completely on autopilot if you want to win playing online bingo.

Multi-tasking means multi-winning
When you play bingo in a bingo hall, you have a chance to buy multiple cards per game. But you only have the luxury of playing in one bingo hall at a time. Unless you’ve mastered cloning and/or time travel, you can’t physically be in two bingo halls at once. That’s not true for online bingo. Since everything happens online, you can fire up multiple online bingo halls at the same time, play multiple cards at each bingo site, and have the opportunity to win more often.

Bigger prizes
Community centers, church basements, and casino bingo halls all have capacity limits. That’s just the nature of brick-and-mortar bingo halls. There are only as many players as there are seats. And bingo halls have to adhere to fire regulations. With online bingo, since everyone plays from the comfort of his or her own house, there’s no maximum capacity to worry about. Ever.

Ready to make the move to online bingo? It’s easy to do, and once you’ve tried online, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make the switch sooner.
