Let’s face it; all of us are whiling away our lives away playing games like Race Queen, Spinkies and the like. But if you’re looking for a way to have a little bit of fun, a real online bingo experience, without burning through all your 12 months of credits, then I think that you’ve come to the right place.
First of all, bingo is a game of pure luck that’s traditionally been played by older people in pubs and clubs. It’s a good old fashion game of “Dewabet” where you just basically pick a number and pray – or voodoo if you prefer – that the numbers you’ve selected will be picked up. There’s a little bit of a cult following out there as people play bingo in their homes and pubs, but the majority of people today prefer to play online bingo through the internet.
All you have to do is click through to the bingo site you’ve picked and follow the simple instructions on how to set up an account. You’ll receive your “card” (the name you’ve chosen on the site) and then decide which bingo game you’d like to join, or if you’d rather stage your own game, you can do this from the comfort of your home.
Once you’ve decided which bingo game you want to play, you’ll then need to “buy” your ticket. What you’ll need to do is to look at the top of the ticket, usually near the eye, and you’ll see the words “LINE TO LAUNCH.” It would be wise to read these lines, as you will figure out how many lines fit onto the bingo ticket you’ve bought, and then you can choose which ones you’d like to play.
First you need to squeeze the Lifemate square on the left side of the screen to make a line, and then you will see the random 5-number squares start to “draw” to the far right side of the screen. If you’ve got two of the same number, then you need to click the spot on the far right side of the screen where you want to have your next number.
You’ll then see the squares begin to get scheduled off (disappear) from the bingo ticket in a random order. After enough of the squares have detached from the ticket, you can then click on the squares that you’d like to play. There are many features of online bingo games that you can find in many of the websites online, including the auto-daub feature that lets you daub the numbers as they come in, allowing you to play up to 10 games at a time.
The play can be either left to the software or you can have the computer select the numbers for you. The software will often choose a random selection for you, and this can be passed on to the next player on your list to fill in. The random selection will sometimes be the winning one.
The cards are also a big part of the online bingo game. The majority of sites have the cards posted for you to fill in, on your own you may also choose to fill them in yourself and this is generally allowed as well. Some sites give you the option of automatically filling in the squares and there are sites that will do this for you.
The number of games on a bingo card is normally not restricted. You can play up to 10 in the same card. The majority of sites will have 75 bingo balls with the patterns varying from Waffle, Line, Full House, Flush, Straight, Base, and One Line.
The Bingo is the heart and soul of bingo and what makes it so much fun. It is a game of chance and luck, and the excitement of this game is sometimes multiplied manyfold when a big win does occur.
