Given the popularity of the land based bingo games, most online casinos have started offering Bingo as a part of their game repertoire. This move has proved to be a big hit, with the global gross gaming yield being around half a billion US Dollars in 2006 alone. In a recent survey, over 350 online bingo sites are now in operation, with millions of players logging on from all over the world. The online version of the game uses a random number generator, and has many added functions like the chat mode where the players can freely interact making it just as fun as the land based game.
To play Bingo, the player is issued tickets with certain numbers on them, and the computer picks a set of numbers as a random draw. The player compares the computer’s draw with his/her ticket, and crosses off numbers that are common. The first player to cross off all numbers wins the main prize.
The online version of the game has many optional features in addition to the chat options. The “auto daub” option allows the player to relax while the computer automatically crosses numbers off the player’s ticket. Best Card Sorting and Best Card Highlighting allow the player to easily access tickets that are closest to Bingo. These options make the online game thoroughly enjoyable.
