The most trending topic currently among bingo aficionados is mobile bingo. Have you played it yet? Experts say that mobile bingo might soon be the future of this billion dollar industry. The ease with which bingo can be played; a leap from the virtual world to the world of mobile is not shocking!
There are advantages and disadvantages related to mobile bingo that go hand in hand. Let’s take a look at some of them:
With mobile bingo, a player can play anywhere and anytime. Do you commute by bus, subways, or train? Do you frequently have to wait in a long queue at the store, theme parks, or even your child’s school? As long as you have an internet connection, with mobile bingo, you are good to go!
Just like the desktop version, even on mobile bingo, you can chat with your fellow players and socialize. Let’s be honest, we could also use a new friend or two and extending your social network is always a plus. This one is a tie; both versions offer the same feature.
Like with any form of technology, those who play bingo must ensure that they are updated with the latest technology. There was a time when iOS reigned supreme. Now it has been taken over by Android. Tomorrow, there may be some other operating system. It’s important, to stay abreast of all of the latest technology.
One negative of playing bingo on your mobile device is that you may get distracted by incoming calls. This will result in an abrupt end to the game. If you are like me and your phone rarely rings, this will not present a problem. If your cellphone is your lifeline, this may present problems.
Connectivity issues are also a massive problem that some operators have to deal with. In case of a weak network service in some areas, you may have to miss out on a good jackpot game.
The good and bad aside, the truth remains that technology is growing hand-over-fist, by leaps and bounds, and these issues may soon become a part of ancient history. For now, even some of the popular bingo sites like GameVillage Bingo, are yet to have a presence on mobile. The progress of mobile bingo, like many forms of technology, may have a ways to go but it will definitely make progress over the coming years. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the mobile gaming and gambling platform!
What are your thoughts? Do you prefer to play on your mobile or desktop?
