Snowed In? Play Online Bingo!

On February 2nd, 2009, Great Britain was hit by the worst snowstorm in 18 years. Heavy snowstorms are a rarity in England and the storm caused significant disruptions to everyday life. In London the buses stopped running, the subways suffered severe delays, and driving was impossible. Many lorry drivers found themselves stranded on the highway.

Londoners made the best of a bad situation which is not surprising considering that this is the very same city that functioned during the ‘blitz’ of World War Two. So just what did Londoners do to entertainment themselves during the snowstorm? They played online bingo!

This should come as no surprise considering the popularity of online bingo sites in the UK. Bingo runs a close second to online poker in popularity in England. Bingo has been incredibly popular in the UK since the late 50’s. One would be hard pressed to find an English village without a bingo club. Since the 90’s when online bingo was introduced the game has grown in popularity and has attracted millions of players.

Online bingo attracts a varied crowd and defies the stereotype of little old ladies playing in a smoky church basement or bingo hall. Online bingo has attracted a whole new generation of younger players and many older players are switching to the online version of the game. Online bingo offers players many perks not found at traditional bingo halls. Sizeable deposit bonuses are the norm rather than the exception and the games can be played 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Many online payment services reported a significant increase in the number of online bingo game transactions during the snowstorm. Snowbound Britons took advantage of the inexpensive entertainment that online bingo provides. During the snowstorm online bingo provided a great way to while away those hours while snowbound. As the song says, Let it Snow-Let it Snow-Let it Snow!
