Bingo chat rooms and getting your friends involved
Everyone knows that the most important part of bingo is the social side of it. Sure, it’s nice to have the chance of winning something, but the real fun lies in spending time with your friends, as well as making lots of new ones and staying in touch with old pals too. In fact, it’s official, with surveys finding that most online players of the game rating the social side of things much more important than the chance of winning any money.
Perhaps you know someone who’s gone away to university, or you’ve had to move home to a different town. What better way to stay in touch than through the internet? More people have fast internet access now than ever before, with internet access rapidly becoming as normal as owning a TV; and with the internet comes new ways to socialize. As nice as it is looking at someone’s Facebook photos, nothing beats actually doing something together…….. step forward online gaming – and many sites now combine both social networking and playing.
Every house is a bingo hall
Online bingo may not actually be better but certainly it is an even match, socially speaking, as physically going to a bingo hall. Although Bingo halls traditionally tended to frown on people talking excessively during games – unsurprisingly, seeing as players need to hear the numbers being called, the gaps between games always provided a welcome break and would see conversations flow. However the new modern venues like the Mecca halls offering After Dark Bin-glo, actively encourage partying and socializing. Of course this is miles apart from the traditional live bingo hall where players would probably have been thrown out for talking too much or being too lively.
Online bingo rooms therefore have a lot to compete with now days and although they may not have the volume or the lively buzz of the new style party venues, talking is certainly encouraged at all times, even during games. In fact the flexibility of the online version is one of the best aspects; and where else can you can sit in your pyjamas and play?
Earn extra money with friends
If you want to invite a few friends along, don’t forget to make the most of it on the site too. Almost all sites have refer-a-friend programs, which can earn you special bonuses and real cash if you invite a friend to play along. Those bonuses vary from site to site, but usually you’ll win a stack of loyalty points, which you can exchange for cash to buy extra cards for games. One or two bingo sites may even offer you a cash prize for bringing a friend along which means you can buy a round in the next time the two of you head for a night out.
Obviously, while it may be boring, you may want to double check the site’s terms and conditions. That said, as long as your friend signs up for an account and pays in a deposit to start playing – and you won’t be able to play games together if they don’t – a reward will quickly be heading your way. Of course, then your friend will be able to refer their friends the same way. Some sites will even let you use Facebook to do this. So go on, get socialising, and make a few new friends. You never know just who you might end up talking to!
