Your Options on Online Bingo
If you opt to play bingo on one of the online bingo sites, you are afforded several options on how you play. This can be somewhat confusing to a new player, but there are always chat moderators on hand to ask if you get confused. If you're new to the game, you'll get the hang of it all in no time!
Firstly, you'll need to choose the type of bingo game to play. 90-ball and 75-ball bingo are the two most common forms of bingo and involve different types of cards or grids. They are built on the same principle of marking the numbers called and trying to form a pattern, but most players have a preference for one or the other.
Next, choose a room in which to play. This choice is one of personal preference, but is generally determined by the price per card for the room, the theme, the speed of the game (Gamevillage.com site offer the option of playing fast or slow bingo) or the prize on offer. Regular players will also try to find a room in which their friends are also playing so they can chat to them at the same time.
From there, it's all about the game. How many cards would you like to play? The more cards you play, the greater your chances of winning but as you might imagine, the greater the number of cards you play the more numbers you need to mark and the more difficult it is to keep track of them all. To help you with this problem, most sites have an 'auto-daub' function that takes care of the troublesome business of marking cards for you. Although some might feel that this detracts from the enjoyment of the game, most players appreciate it because it means they'll never miss a number and therefore a chance at winning. Bingo is an extremely social game, so most players will use the auto-daub function and relax as they chat to their friends.
Prizes in bingo are generous, especially if you opt to play for a progressive jackpot. You can also take advantage of the free bingo rooms available on many sites, which offer free games at predetermined times for registered players. This means you get to play the game you love while paying nothing for it and giving yourself a chance to win the prize - what an incredible way to play!
If you're after even bigger prizes and thrills, you can also take a break from bingo to try out some of the slot machines on offer in every bingo site. These are also great fun and offer huge prizes to be won.
