Online bingo is a huge industry, with around 3.5 million regular players and at least 220 licensed bingo sites serving players’ needs. What can often get lost in this sea of variety, games, and players is the ability to truly enjoy the game, or at least to get the most enjoyment out of it. We tend to forget that that really is the most important part of the game, and everything else should be secondary.
We’re going to look at some tips for enjoying online bingo on the go via mobile sites or from your computer and changing up the formula if you find online bingo is getting stale—or if you’ve never been sure you would enjoy it in the first place!
Find Your Game Style
One of the great things about online bingo is the huge new variety it brings to the games. Most of what was played in bingo halls in the U.K. would have been 90-ball bingo, with some 75-ball games. But online bingo has meant huge and constantly increasing variety in games.
It might be that, for whatever reason, you don’t enjoy traditional bingo games online in the same way you do in a bingo hall. It may be best to consider dropping those old games if you’re getting bored and finding a new one.
Nowadays, bingo sites can offer as many as 12 different versions of the game, some taking huge liberties on the original premise. But this could be what you need. If you find the game is getting stale, or you just don’t enjoy it as much online, try a different game.
Make an Event of it
One of the reasons many feel that online bingo becomes stale is because they end up going through the motions, playing just to win the prizes, and don’t feel anything special about it anymore. With physical bingo, since you are going out, it always feels like an event.
So, why not make an event of your online bingo games? Obviously, you might not be able to for every game, but when you can, you could invite friends over and have drinks and snacks while you all enjoy the game together.
Making it a social event in this way is key and one of the easiest ways to make the game more enjoyable. Once you’re just going through the motions and playing to win, it will become stale.
Pick Your Games
Following on from the last point, one of the reasons that often online bingo is not as enjoyable is the fact that it is constantly available. If it is on your phone, then you have constant access to it. So, one of the things you can do to make the games you play more fun is simply not playing it so much.
Pick the games you play, maybe occasionally playing a high-stakes game or a couple of smaller games. This will make those games much more memorable and exciting since you know you won’t just play again if you don’t win.
Finding a site with an art style that you really like, along with particular games that you can really get into, will make the games more fun too. But, again, for many people, the game will become stale if you constantly play, so it’s important to know when to quit, and not just for budget reasons.
If you follow one or all of these steps, I have no doubt that your passion for bingo will be reignited, and you’ll love the game once more.
