of Bingo and Keno in Online Casinos Rising
As online casinos become
more popular the world over and high speed internet connections
have become available to a wider population, online casinos are
available to gamble in, in the farthest corners of the globe.
People can be found merrily gambling away, from Siberia to
Not only has the popularity of online casinos expanded in
geographical terms. A broader spectrum of society is gaming on a
regular basis. Online casinos are not just the domain of the
young who seem to have grown up in front of a computer.
As we have seen in recent years, games such as poker have had
their profiles raised considerably; youngsters have been
practicing their poker skills in online casinos in an attempt to
try and learn the game and make some money. Many of the poker
champions around today honed their skills in online casinos.
This rise in skill based games is very apparent but what about
those games that don't have such a high profile?
Games such as bingo and keno surprisingly have also become
hugely popular. Bingo and keno are finding their place in the
online casinos for more unfortunate reasons.
There was a time when bingo and keno was played in every town
the world over but due to changing times the local bingo and
keno halls are closing down. These small community bingo halls
can no longer compete with big money lottery competitions and
jackpots from local casinos. Also, smoking bans have been
introduced to bingo halls in America and the UK and the numbers
have been dwindling ever since.
Online casinos have been in business since the late 90's but
their clientele was limited. It is only in recent years that
online casinos have had more of a general appeal. Surveys taken
in online casinos show there is a growing number of people
playing games like bingo and keno and this has started a new
trend. These games used to be reserved for the blue rinse
brigade – elderly women whiling away the hours in retirement
homes. The facelift these games have undergone are astounding.
Bingo and Keno have whole websites dedicated to them and chat
rooms have been spawned where people meet and cheer each other
along. Online casinos employ staff in the bingo and keno rooms
called chat monitors and it's these people's jobs to jolly up
the atmosphere and make the place as welcoming as possible.
Many bingo and keno players in online casinos don't even
actively play the game. They click on the auto daub option and
the computer marks off the numbers as and when they are
'called'. This allows gamers the freedom to chat to other gamers
in online casinos.
Bingo and keno have spawned a new generation of gamers in online
casinos because of the friendly and easy atmosphere. Even though
the jackpots are more limited people want to play because of the
warm and welcoming environment and friendships that are forged.
