Guide To Online Bingo

Guide to Online Bingo

Bingo is a British institution, some might say as important as fish and chips or afternoon tea, but now with the advancement of technology, the ability to play almost anywhere through online bingo sees it fast becoming the most popular version of the game.

For those who are more familiar with online slots and have never played a round of bingo before, you may want to know what all the fuss is about. Or perhaps you're a player who regularly attends bingo halls and you’re looking to play from the comfort of your own home. Either way here at Crown Bingo we’ve got you covered in our guide to online bingo.

How Does Online Bingo Work?

If this is your first venture into online bingo, one of the things you’ll be pleased to learn is that it’s quite a simple game to understand. Whether you’re playing online or in bingo halls, the numbers will be called, and then they’ll need to be marked off your card. Match all the numbers - either a line, two lines or a full house - to win the prize pot on offer.

What is the Best Online Bingo to Play?

The question of which is the best type of online bingo to play can only be answered by individual players, as finding the right place to play isn’t the easiest task in the world. The more information you have about playing the game itself and what types of games are on offer should help you make that decision about whether to fire up a game of 90 ball or 75 ball bingo.

Playing Bingo Online

One of the biggest advantages of playing online bingo is that many of the things players would normally do within a bingo hall are automated, and this includes marking your cards. Simply listen out for the selection of numbers on your tickets, and when they are called, it will be daubed automatically.

This works to ensure every player has an equal shot at winning. Otherwise, people with slower network connections would be at a disadvantage which, ultimately, would be a violation of regulations. Should you win on any one game, the computer software will automatically record the win and deposit the winnings into your account.

You Will Need an Online Bingo Account

Before playing a game of online bingo, you’ll need to open an account with us here at Crown Bingo. Opening an account will give you access to exclusive promotions and offers which can be handy if you’re a new or first time player. So to go ahead and register, click the button at the top of the home page. Once you’ve completed the registration process, players will be able to deposit into their accounts using one of our secure payment methods. You’ll then be able to purchase tickets as you go.

The second option, once you’ve signed up for an account, is to pre buy your tickets for games. This means you’ll be able to be involved even if you won’t be online at the time, as any of the winnings from these games will be credited to your account ready for when you next login.

Remember, we also have a host of daily deals that run across both our 90 ball and 75 ball rooms which include extra games and the potential to land free tickets. Not only that, we also have an exclusive welcome offer in which players can receive a £50 deposit bonus directly into their account. T&Cs apply.

Making a Deposit in Your Account

If you’re comfortable with electronic payments and banking, then making deposits in your account shouldn’t be an issue.

What Are the Odds of Winning a Game of Online Bingo?
