If you’re looking to save money, it’s a good idea to cut back on the nights out that you have. But that doesn’t always seem too much fun, so if you’re going to be spending more time at home, it’s good to have an alternative to watching the TV night after night.


That’s where a game such as online bingo can come in really handy. As you might have noticed from all the TV ads for bingo sites recently, online bingo has rocketed in popularity in recent years, with all kinds of sites offering amazing cash prizes to be won. And because of that competition between sites, there are plenty of incentives for new players to sign up with the different sites, such as 32red Bingo and Cheeky Bingo. For example, if you want to play now at 32red, there’s a £10 bonus for just signing up, and then if you make a deposit, there’s an extra £32 added to your account for every £10 that you put in. So, for just a tenner, you could have £42 to play with, which goes a long way when bingo games only cost pennies at a time to play.

So, why do people like playing online bingo so much? Firstly, it’s the simplicity of the game that many people love. You don’t have to put your thinking cap on to play online bingo. The software marks the numbers that match the calls for you, so you can just choose which game and how many cards you’re going to play, and then sit back and watch what happens. Secondly, there’s the unknown quantity – not knowing where the next win will come. You could play bingo all night and not win a bean, or you could win the jackpot on your first ever game. It’s that element of chance that entices so many people to play bingo.

Another reason why bingo is a really popular online choice is that it has a big social side to it. While the games are going on, you can enter the bingo chat room and strike up conversations with whoever else is in the chat room. If you want to spend time with your friends without actually going out, you could always get them to join the same bingo site as you and arrange when you’re going to go online. Better still, get a few of the girls round for a night in to have a few glasses of wine and all play bingo together. All they need to bring with them is a tablet or mobile so that they can all login to the same site as you. With Macmillan’s Night In coming up next month, you could even combine your bingo evening with doing some fundraising for the cancer charity.

Bingo sites tend to be busy places in the evening – and it’s often when there are big prizes up for grabs. That means as well as having lots of people to chat to, you may just strike it lucky and end up improving the state of your finances with a fun and easy game! A win’s never guaranteed, but you’ll have fun trying anyway.
