Playing bingo online: a new way to play
Bingo is possibly the most popular game in the world, played in many countries in different languages around the world. However, the move to online bingo is a leap of faith for some. The main obstacle for players is trust in the system. How do we know that the numbers are random and not forged by the computer?
Gala bingo says that the order in which the bingo balls are drawn is determined by their random number generator (RNG for short). The RNG Gala bingo uses have been developed by market leader Sun Microsystems. Sun says its Virtue Fusion software ensures that the outcome of each game is absolutely random.
The Virtue Fusion network is used by several other bingo sites. The advantage of this for players is that each game will have a depth of players and a large enough prize that is worth playing for.
Players can mingle in online chat rooms before playing, but when the game starts, the chat ends and the serious stuff begins. The numbers are dialed by the host and the numbers are automatically struck off your bingo card for you. So you don’t have to be quick with your clicks to tap your numbers. The chat panel constantly sends you updates on who has only two or one number so you can know where you are in the game.
Bingo games vary and some may already be familiar with the variations of traditional 90 ball bingo. Variations like 75-ball bingo and 80-ball bingo are self-describing. The games with the most spin are like The Money Ladder Deal or No Deal, where the winner of the house has to choose to accept an offer from the ‘banker’ or take a prize in a chosen box at the beginning of the game.
There have never been so many online bingo sites to choose from. Most are based overseas and many players would not have heard of them except from some of the big names. Paddypower and William Hill have a presence in online bingo, as well as a few other big brands. However, smaller bingo houses are proving popular, such as 32Red and Gala Bingo. Competition in this industry means that players can get sign-up deals that are so good that they would be enough to tempt anyone. Free money to play being the most desirable. 32Red, for example, gives away £ 10 to each new player, no deposit required.
Welcome offers for new players are like:
– Registration bonuses without deposit

You can even play bingo on your mobile. William Hill Bingo has an app that can be downloaded to any device and you can play on the go, or even at the beach. William Hill will even give you £ 2.50 to play just for trying his new games.
Bingo will never be the same again, but that is progress. The variety of games and easy-to-use systems mean that anyone can play. Automatic card erasure means you don’t need to be quick with the pen to play. Play as many cards as you can and increase your chances of winning.
