Some people unfamiliar with online bingo think that the only games available at bingo sites are relatively mechanical bingo games. In reality nothing could be further from the truth. Online bingo sites offer players a wide selection of games, activities and entertainment. At most sites players will find traditional American style 75 ball bingo games along with British style 90 ball games. Some bingo sites even offer 30 and 80 ball games. 30 ball bingo is known as ‘speed bingo’ and is perfect for those that love fast paced action. There are hundreds of online bingo sites in many languages. At many sites players are given a choice between most of the major languages. Many bingo sites accept different currencies at current exchange rates.
Obviously bingo games are the main attraction at most bingo sites although some operators say that slot games account for most of the profits. In addition to bingo most sites offer slots, poker, baccarat, blackjack, keno, roulette, pai gow poker and other table and casino games. Some online bingo sites feature linked slots with huge jackpots. Players should be aware that to win the ‘big one’ they must bet the ‘max’ to win the main jackpot. Many players have hit the winning combination only to find that they didn’t win because they didn’t bet the max. Since online bingo sites are able to offer a wide selection of bingo games players may find some games not available at local bingo halls. There are also high stakes bingo games to make things more exciting.
In addition to the selection of bingo games and side games there are other activities for players to enjoy. For those that enjoy socializing chat rooms and forums are available. This is a great way for players to make new friends from around the world. Some bingo sites host online radio shows featuring bingo news and the latest big winners. Some bingo sites have galleries where players can post photos and in some cases videos. At some sites players can post articles they have written along with jokes and recipes. Some bingo sites, especially in the UK, will have synopses of popular television shows and reviews of current episodes.
In addition to all of the games and other activities most online bingo sites host regular tournaments and contests. Many hold slots tournaments with sizable jackpots. Today’s bingo sites provide players with much more than bingo games. Most online bingo sites have morphed into online casinos with activities and games for everyone.
