Online bingo has become a phenomenon on the internet, in the past ten years its popularity has grown exponentially. In the USA alone, more people play online bingo than go to the movies, despite the fact that the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act has made financial transactions for these sites against the law.
There are a few reason why online bingo has become so popular, and these are chiefly because it is such a simple game to understand and play, because it is exciting (particularly because of the prizes on offer) and because it is such a social game. Online bingo players are able to meet other people from all over the world, from all walks of life while they are in chat, and they all have one thing in common, they all love playing bingo! Both social and emotional bonds are formed and we have heard of more than one love affair that evolved out of online bingo chat rooms, as well as a couple of marriages QQ Online.
Bingo has transitioned very well from the land based industry to the online industry, now it has technologically advanced even more to the mobile industry. Mobile bingo is bingo which can be played on your mobile phone, so you can have access to your favorite game any time, any where. Millions of people play this game and it is envisaged that mobile bingo and other forms of mobile gaming will be the next huge gambling wave.
Regardless of the fact that there is supposedly a world-wide recession, online gambling is still growing in popularity. One thing that a recession brings out in people is the need for cheaper entertainment forms and this is what online gambling does. It provides a cheap entertainment outlet for people, with the added opportunity of being able to win very large prizes and gifts. They also offer plenty of free money and where in any land based bingo hall or casino would you find this?
The availability of high speed broadband has also made it far easier for people to access online bingo sites, and research shows that the demographics of people playing bingo have changed quite dramatically. Land based bingo clubs used to be considered the territory of women of a certain age group to meet and play as well as socialize. Online bingo is completely different, people of all ages and sexes play, and they are generally from all walks of life.
