Every bingo site these days has a chat room; it’s a great piece of technology that makes online bingo a very social game, without it we don’t think online bingo would be as popular as it is. One thing that we have always wondered is when will live video chat come? Well bingo cams have pioneered new software to include webcams in their chat rooms, this European site that is set to hit the UK in November and we have been given an exclusive look behind the scenes.
Once logged into a game you can choose to either have your webcam off or on. People can’t see what your doing live unless you are ‘friends’ with them, if the camera is off all other players will be able to see whilst playing is an avatar of your choosing (you can pick a picture from your computer or take a photo using your webcam). When someone wins the screen flashes up the persons webcam so you can see them celebrating (with a little bit of luck it will be you waving your arms around like a loon). Again you can choose to switch this feature off should you be playing in your pyjamas – there are more reasons to leave your webcam on though.
The sites media team tell us that prizes will be larger if you choose to show your winning webcam video, this will then be put into the hall of fame for others to see. You will also be able to see your chat hosts for the first time, it’s all very exciting and we love the unique idea.
We have also learnt that when the site launches they will be launching with huge no deposit bonuses for bingo reviewer members so be sure to check back nearer the time or follow us on facebook for the latest news.
