Online bingo games have the potential to be a source of great fun, provided you can maintain playing bingo as a leisure activity and not one of habit. Unfortunately, general remarks made by those who do not play bingo - often untrue - are still circulated and unfortunately give social online bingo a bad name. Here are 7 of the best:
Myth # 1: Online Bingo Costs A Lot Of Money.
Many bingo sites offer games for free or a nominal charge such as 1c / 1p per game. There are also sites that allow you to accrue points or credits, in which case you can use those credits or points in place of money in order to play.
Myth # 2: Playing Bingo Online Is A Waste Of Time.
For some bingo players, playing bingo is a source of entertainment. Many players can not go out to socialise due to financial, physical, or geographical restrictions, so their bingo game online becomes their social activity or focus. Conveniently, regardless of the weather, online games can be played at any time and in the comfort of your own home!
Myth # 3: Bingo Games Online Are Not For Older People.
Many bingo games are played online by older people who have had to learn how to use a computer due to their loss of mobility over time. Although accepted that bingo, when played for money, is clearly not for those younger than 18, no age limit has been set for adult players.
Myth # 4: All Bingo Sites Are A Scam.
Although some bingo sites online may be questionable, the game itself is exactly what it always was: a game to match the numbers folded, with the numbers on a card.
Myth # 5: Playing Bingo Online Never Produces High Gains.
Bingo is the original jackpot game. The more people that play, the higher the prize. Online bingo takes that to a new level by allowing an unlimited number of people worldwide to participate in the same game of bingo. Although the chances of winning the entire jackpot yourself are lower, a divide may still amount to quite a considerable sum. Additionally, major tournaments such as the annual Bingo World Championship, with its $ 10,000 prize pool provide a chance at a larger jackpot.
Nowadays, many online bingo sites also offer progressive jackpots which are won when the bingo occurs within a set number. The earlier the bingo, the higher the jackpot.
Myth # 6: Online Bingo Is An Expensive Form Of Entertainment.
Some people choose to go down the pub and spend $ 20 on beer; others like to go out and get their nails done; and others like to go to see a film at the cinema. However if none of these forms of entertainment is appealing - why should someone not spend their same same $ 20 "leisure" money on playing bingo, if that is what they enjoy doing? The key is not to spend more than your entertainment budget allows.
Myth # 7: Playing Bingo Games Online Is An Anti-Social Activity.
Bingo is a lot of fun and gives you the chance to interact with people all over the world, while having a go at playing one of the oldest and easiest games in the world. If you are a shy person, online interaction is a great step forward and can provide a level of confidence that would not have otherwise been gained by staying at home.
Neverheless, playing online bingo - as with everything - should be done in moderation to fully enjoy its benefits.
