Guide to Bingo Lingo

01 February 2013

Over the past decade online bingo has become an increasingly popular pastime. People are turning away from bingo halls in their droves, and opting to play from the comfort of their own home. Researchers now rank it as the second most popular online game in the UK.

Bingo is as much about the social interaction and the ‘buzz’ of excitement players feel, than anything else, which is why chat rooms are a key feature of the most popular sites. But, for anyone logging on to an online bingo site for the first time, they could be forgiven for thinking that everyone else on the integrated chat room was a little bit barmy!

29 August 2012

Now more than 450 years old, bingo is one of the oldest games on the planet, reinventing itself time and again for generations. From church hall favourite, and one of the biggest crazes of the 1940s, to becoming an online sensation at sites like Jackpotjoy, the game’s simplicity and versatility - not to mention the fact that it’s a lot of fun! – has helped bingo go the distance. Now you can play bingo whenever you want, online, and even on your TV set and if you use one of the promotion you can play bingo for free.

Shows like National Bingo Night and Bingo America emerged in 2007, allowing bingo-lovers to play along at home via their TVs for the first time. But this isn’t the first time bingo has appeared in our living rooms. As testament to the game’s popularity, it’s been popping up in TV shows since the beginning of television itself.

Although no TV show has yet featured the modern online take on bingo, with players crossing their fingers at home as they play at sites like Jackpotjoy, TV producers have used the bingo hall time and again, both to lampoon the game, and to celebrate it. So let’s take a look at the top TV hits that have featured our favourite game over the years.

30 July 2012

The worldwide market for what is collectively termed “gambling” is estimated to be worth around $110 billion each year – and it’s growing. Of this total, casinos (both real and online) currently make up the largest percentage, followed by gaming machines, lotteries, then Bingo and other betting (including horse racing, football etc.).

It’s difficult to separate out exactly how much business is done online and these stats are, of course, global, so are hugely swayed by what is included in the term gambling – and the activities of countries like the USA and China.
