As online bingo becomes more and more popular, many are making the switch from live to online bingo. Many find this task daunting so lets have a look at this process in detail. Firstly lets discuss the equipment you need. Yes of course you need a computer. You don’t though need the latest model as online bingo sites will run perfectly on even a modest aged machine. Your only other requirement is an internet connection but yet again even a modest cheap connection will suffice.
There are hundreds of online bingo sites but I would recommend that you play on a fully accredited and regulated UK sites as these are the market leaders and you can guarantee any money you deposit or win is secure. I will though say at this stage not to worry about making a deposit but we will deal with this later.
Find an affiliate site that lists UK online bingo sites and give a general review of the sites plus lists the offers available. Online bingo does not suit everybody’s taste but to counter this many bingo sites will offer you free money to play on their site. I would recommend that you take up the offers of free bingo money to play on 2 or 3 sites until you find one that you feel comfy with. So select a site from the affiliate site you are reading that offers you a no deposit bonus and click on the banner or link that takes you to the actual bingo site.
Simply follow the instructions to join the site which normally includes entering your name and address .The software will download to your computer and create an icon on your system. To play just click the icon and the bingo site will load.
Bingo sites do have their own unique features but all have the same game play features. These include actual bingo rooms where you simply select bingo cards and play bingo. These rooms also include a chat room where you can text talk with others who are playing. Bingo sites also have other bingo type games such as slots, table games such as blackjack and even instant win games such as scratch cards.
If you are used to playing live in clubs such as Mecca and Gala you will find these sites now have their own online sites. I will stress though that you should start with sites that offer you free money to play as this is a great way to get use to the online bingo experience without risking your own cash.
If you do enjoy the experience and you decide to deposit you own money on to your chosen online bingo site then you do not have to worry about the security of the site. As I have said. UK online bingo sites are regulated and secure. When you go through the deposit or withdraw process your transaction are processed on an encrypted server so no one can access your details.
So take my advice and give online bingo a try and you will find that the transition from live bingo to online bingo is not a painful as you might believe.
