The recent boom of online bingo has brought with it a new type of online community. One that is very specific to bingo. When you look at other communities they don’t compare with the bingo community that is much more focused around fun and friendship than anything else.
What do people who play bingo want?
It seems that they all want to have a good time! Focus is very much on the fun aspect of the game. There are games in the chat box that people get involved with and it really seems to be the social aspect that attracts many players. It is a great way to get to meet some new friends and have some relaxation time away from the strains of day to day life. Online bingo is much less expensive than actually going to the bingo which has become a big draw for many players given the current economic climate.
Who then is part of the online bingo community?
Well it seems that it is mostly women however that does not mean men are not welcome and do not play online bingo. Bingo has always been dominated by women and therefore the community is predominantly female based. Age really isn’t an issue either for the bingo community, but the typical age range is more towards 30-50 years old than anything else. However recently there has been a rise in younger players entering the online version of the game.
What about the gambling side of things?
The gambling side of the game is a very interesting one when it comes to online bingo. You would think that for many it would be the main attraction and for some we are sure it is. However it would appear that for the majority the gambling isn’t the number 1 reason for playing. That’s not to say they don’t enjoy the chance to win some money. Players are much more interested in having a good time and chatting than making outrageous wagers.
Well that’s unique for the internet!
Yes the online bingo community is very unique. It has formed based around fun and socialising and not the need to gamble and win money. Obviously the gambling is a factor which brings people into the community but is often out done by the need to take a break, find an avenue for relaxation and to socialise.
There are however some great opportunities to get the most value out of your bingo and some of the bigger prize pool games could really make a big difference to anyone’s life financially. It has even been known for people to meet their life partners when playing online bingo as well which is pretty amazing!
