More and more of the playing public are turning their backs on online casinos to try and ply their trade at online bingo. Obviously, online casinos are now providing their jbo own form of a bingo buzz but it should take time before they attract the type of numbers that are associated with the bingo big boys of the playing sector.
Those that concentrate purely on bingo will always attract more bingo players than those that concentrate of complete casino playing. They may have a bingo game available but next to your skin table games, poker and online video poker machines to lure potential and would be players.
Bingo has a faster set up rate. You find the bingo room you are looking for, sign up and play, whereas with online casinos you may not yet know exactly what game you are likely to play or even stick with on a long term basis. This makes bingo an easy gamble (no pun intended! ) you probably know this what you are going to get, anything after that is just an additional. The other main attraction of bingo is the large forums and discussion boards available, you have the time to chat, and with focus can afford to chat whilst playing or not. When sat at a blackjack table however, the last thing you want is something in the corner of your eye boasting along showing who is chatting to who and who has won what. It simply isn’t feasible at online casinos.
A certain article in the Times today (22nd August 2009) advised that almost 20% of bingo in general is now played online with
admissions being the major factor, the more you have playing, the more there is in prize money. Another reason that online casinos will find it hard to compete as an increase in blackjack or roulette players does not increase what you could win if a ball countries on 8 black.
The sole option that online casinos have, and, could possibly deliver on, is to side out. Many have inked this with good effect. Virgin Games for example were once purely an online casino, but have at the moment delved into the online bingo market with Virgin Bingo.
Each online casino will need a nice peel of the cake and those that take longer than others will be most affected when it comes to how much of a peel each casino takes.
