The game of bingo has been around for centuries, but it has only been in recent years that the industry has seen such a large surge. This is mostly due to the popularity of online bingo, and the crowds of fans that have been flocking to the game since the online gaming boom at the turn of the 21st Century.
Traditional bingo gained such a wide following due to the importance placed on interaction by bingo operators. Bingo halls provided players with a place to congregate and meet with their friends on a regular basis. This social aspect became a staple of playing bingo and soon became a drawing factor, which caused more people to become fans of the game.
When operators began moving online, they decided that they wanted to keep this important aspect, and began to encourage players to interact with one another. In land-based halls, players were not allowed to speaking during the actual game, but online, players can converse to their hearts? content during the game with innovative new chat rooms. This took traditional bingo's social factor one step further and persuaded more people to play.
Online bingo has also introduced the concept of bonuses to the bingo industry. Taking a cue from online casinos, online bingo operators started offering players additional cash prizes for meeting simple requirements, such as depositing a minimum amount of money or referring a specific number of friends. This was a foreign idea to traditional bingo fans, and soon became a key reason for the great popularity of online bingo websites.
