People were sitting down to play bingo as long ago as the early 1800s in the UK. This long and proud tradition has continued in bingo halls across the country but these days the online version of the game is becoming increasingly popular especially at online bingo sites like Butlers Bingo. Ever wondered how to play online? In this article we look at how you can join in on the fun.
Starting out in online bingo is fun and fairly easy to do. However, because it is a virtual game there are a couple of factors that you need to bear in mind and the most obvious of these are the differences from traditional bingo. In online bingo you do not have to mark your card as the numbers are called out, this happens automatically using a function known as ‘auto daub’. As a result games happen much faster and you can play more games and therefore win more money than is possible in traditional bingo. You can even buy tickets, play with them and win – all without being online when the game is played!
Marking the cards is not the only function that is automated as when your card is full you don’t have to call out ‘bingo’ either as the system does it for you. With so many differences from traditional bingo you may wonder why so many people are flocking to online bingo rooms. The appeal of the online version is in the incredible variety of themed games, the fact you can play from the comfort of your own home at any time and the highly social aspect of the chat rooms.
The rooms are presided over by ‘chat hosts’, people that police the chats to keep things under control and to oversee the fun banter that goes on.
