Online Bingo Popularity Snowballs

It’s a well know fact that there are more people playing at online bingo sites than ever before. However, the full extent of internet bingo’s popularity is not talked about too much, even on the large online bingo forums and bingo review websites. Historically in the 90’s bingo was played in land based bingo halls by older generation individuals as online bingo had not really flourished at this point – it was never expected that bingo would become the huge worldwide sensation for all ages that it is today.

Bingo has recently been announced as the most popular leisure activity in the UK for women between the ages of 20 and 25 years old (Source: Gala Group figures) and in the US it is forecasted that the gross gaming yield of online bingo will exceed $1billion dollars by 2010 (Parlay Entertainment). That is a huge amount of players and massive tax revenue for the governments around the world, all because of a simple game growing in popularity.

Now free bingo has hit the online scene with the likes of Cheeky Bingo and Costa Bingo becoming available. This means that anyone can sign up and compete for large jackpots without depositing a penny! The sites make their money from offering instant games and also other bingo rooms which do require a small payment to play. It’s a well thought out concept which is proving very popular especially as these uncertain financial times make free bingo offerings much more enticing especially as they offer hours of entertainment.

So what’s next for online gaming? Will it ever get to the point where providers pay users to play?!! Who knows – in online gaming anything can happen.
