By now, you should know that in the word of online bingo, you won't only need to mark numbers off a ticket to win. Thanks to the inclusion of many different bingo variants and of course; slot games, playing bingo at home is more popular now than it's ever been...
...and gone are the days where you'd have to get dressed up and head out to enjoy a game of bingo, because whether you own the latest mobile or tablet or a dated desktop or laptop computer, the joys of bingo and games can be accessed with just a few clicks of a mouse or a press of a finger!
Researchers believe that the force behind the influx of online bingo players is purely down to the smoking ban, which came into effect in 2007 in England - this had a knock-on effect and led to many bingo hall closures...
...but others believe it's down to the advances in technology, including HTML5 which allows for mobile optimised gaming. One thing we know for certain is that there is a vast selection of bingo sites available and all must keep up with the times, by this we mean introducing new promotions or games, or they'll get left behind whilst the competition flourishes!
