Online Bingo More Popular Than Ever Before
Now that so many of us are stuck at home, we’re obviously looking for alternative ways to enjoy a bit of gaming fun. And the world wide web is doing exactly that. In fact, if any one industry has managed to escape the perils of a global health disaster, then that industry would have to be the iGaming sector – and according to news reports, in particular online Bingo.
Online Bingo operators have all throughout under-lock-and-key orders had their hands full keeping Bingo players busy – players who, being for the moment unable to visit their favourite Bingo gaming halls and parlours, have taken to playing online Bingo instead. So much so that in the UK alone, iGaming member numbers increased by as much as 30% during the month of March alone. And according to the experts, 30% is a conservative estimate at best.
A Matter Of Convenience
But the incredible hike in numbers and popularity may have a great deal more to do with the basic convenience of playing online vs. playing Bingo at a physical location outside of the home. What better way to spend an ordinary Wednesday evening than by dabbing away at the numbers whenever the mood strikes? Online Bingo saves the player from the inconvenience of travel and all sorts of planning associated with leaving the home for a night out.
What’s more, there’s no need to be compromising on the social side of things either. Since most online Bingo platforms include an interactive chat function, players can still check in with old friends and even make some new friends along the way.
Looking To The Future
The current global health crisis has in many ways pushed fast-forward on the digital revolution in general. Many people who would previously never even have considered the possibility of playing online Bingo instead of heading on out to a physical venue, are currently having the time of their lives online. Crisis has yet again forced us to embrace a way of doing things we previously either experienced as being daunting and “unknown” or never even thought of in the first place.
What has also helped the industry a great deal is the exceptionally high quality of games recently developed. And together with the rise of virtual reality and augmented reality technology, online Bingo games are about to become even more realistic and interactive. The future of gaming and entertainment is online. Bingo’s future is online.
