Online bingo has taken the world by storm! Everyone is playing - grandmothers, college professors, students, old men, young men, women of all ages and even people that say they don’t like regular bingo are hooked on the excitement and buzz of the online version! Let’s take a look at some of the features of online bingo and figure out why this has become so popular. The aim of any game of bingo is to complete the entire the game pattern on your bingo card before any other player. If you do, you have a "bingo" and win the prize that is on offer for that particular game.   The online bingo community has increased by more than tenfold. There are now more than one hundred online bingo sites- and that’s certainly hordes of people watching the numbers and marking them off their card / or in this case screen card. If you haven’t played online bingo before and wish to give it a go, I would suggest you try playing a few free online Bingo cards and chat to other players to get a "feel" of playing the game online. You will be amazed at the quality of the graphics and sound effects when playing online bingo and you will soon be transported to a virtual world of bingo. It’s just like being at a real bingo hall except that you are perhaps playing from the comfort of your own living roomsofa. There are a number of bingo software packages online, ranging from Java and Flash bingo games.  Most of the bingo websites include other online games such as Video Poker, Slots and Pull Tabs or scratch tickets. Chat rooms are a vital feature of online bingo websites so that their players can chat to other members while waiting for their numbers to fall into place. They really are an essential attribute that people look for when choosing an online bingo community in which to play bingo, relax and make new friends.  Another important feature of online bingo sites is clear graphics, so that the player has a clear unrestricted view of the bingo cards and is also be able to see the bingo balls as they are being called. Players can sit down to play one game or one hundred games of bingo- it’s their choice!  If you need to do something and leave the game, that’s no problem either with online bingo as the bingo cards will automatically daub for you and bingo will be automatically called. Most online bingo sites use auto daubing and auto-bingo. It is an important feature used to call bingo for the bingo player when they have accomplished the pattern in play before any other bingo players. Did you know?
