Once considered to be a game catering exclusively to the elderly population, bingo has now reached our living rooms through the internet. A large number of online platforms have come up over the past decade where people can play multiple bingo and casino games. So is the player demographic still the same? Not really.
In Britain, the average bingo player is a 46 year old woman with a college degree and kids. It has been speculated that the rise in the number of middle aged female players has been because of the chat room features available on the bingo sites. People who play online bingo games can take part in active socializing through these chat rooms during their visit to the website they play on.
One of the main reasons of the popularity of these chat rooms is the chat hosts, endearingly called CHs in the bingo world. Chat hosts moderate the chats, play small games with players, answer questions, and keep everyone entertained. They also make sure that the player who has entered the chat room does not feel left out.
Contests, giveaways, and charity donations are other reasons why players stick to online bingo sites. They are rewarded and recognized for participation and become a part of a close-knit community of like minded people.
With all that it has to offer, bingo can be a great way to ease stress and make some new friends at the same time. If you start feeling that daily life is getting a little dull or monotonous (which it sometimes inevitably gets), why not hop on the band wagon and see how it takes you to bingo-land to make new friends?
