Guide to Best of Online Bingo

Online bingo community is growing, thanks to new games and social features

The world of online bingo is expanding, thanks to a combination of historical interest in the game usually played in parlours, halls and community centres with the increasing push toward including social features such as chat, tournaments, and bingo schools.

Most of the major online gambling operators now boast a bingo room alongside their usual casino, poker and betting sites. However, there has also been a proliferation in specialist online bingo rooms, which cater specifically to ensuring that players receive the top bingo experience for their buck.

Bingo trends in 2012

Online bingo is becoming ever more social, with top sites like Jackpot City Bingo and bet365 Bingo introducing chat moderators to ensure a vibrant atmosphere. Bingo Cams is among those to go even further, introducing webcams to enable players to meet each other, and even opening up a speed dating room.

Another move toward a more social form of bingo was also taken by Jackpot City Bingo, when it launched its new guide feature. Bella, as the site's guide is known, is very friendly, and informs players about all standard games and bonuses, particularly those that are female-friendly.

What to expect in 2013

The next big thing will surely be on Facebook, after the world's leading social gaming network and 888 agreed last month to launch a real-money bingo app followed by application for casino games and other gambling-related products. They are keen to build on the play-for-fun Bingo Island site, which already has 630,000 players.

UK Facebook members are already enjoying Bingo Friendzy, an app launched last August in conjunction with Gamesys Group which offers real-money bingo and slots. Demand will ensure that such apps are eventually extended to other markets.

Top online bingo brands

Jackpot City's online bingo is one of the top bingo rooms on the web, for a number of reasons including the social features listed above. Sign up now to Jackpot City Bingo to receive an extra $25 (or currency equivalent) welcome bonus), and gain access to the operator's casino and betting sites on the same account.

If you'd prefer to try a smaller, niche bingo site, we recommend checking out Giggle Bingo for an entertaining package. Giggle is part of the Microgaming Bingo platform, and is appropriate for those who love bingo but want a selection of online slots on the side.
