If you are reading our brilliant Cheers Bingo blog then there is a high chance that you are one of our loyal roomies or perhaps a new player settling into the site. Whatever your reasons for visiting, we always try to provide up to date and comprehensive information on our Cheers Bingo blog and this week we are looking at how desktop players can switch to the mobile version of the site.

Why Go Mobile?

Mobile gaming is now more popular than traditional desktop gaming and this can be attributed to the massive rise in mobile technologies. Tablets are more popular than ever and mobile phones now have the technology to run sophisticated gaming software to make for a truly solid and fluid gaming experience right from the palm of your hand. This is why more and more people are choosing to enjoy a game of online bingo or slots from their phone or tablet device.

Cheers Bingo Mobile Options

This is not the case at Cheers and our site is not scaled down in any way (apart from the screen size of course) and you will be able to play all your favourite 90 and 75 ball games just as you would on the normal version of the site. Additionally, we have a great range mobile-friendly slots to enjoy also.

Also, a quick bingo or slot game is a great way to pass the time while you are waiting on the bus or are on your lunch break as a lot of our games can be played in just a few minutes.

Online Bingo vs Traditional Bingo

For generations, the game of bingo has had a loyal following and it is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. While traditional bingo has declined over the last few years, the online bingo market has continued to flourish and there are millions of players logging onto their favourite sites to play the game of online bingo. Most enthusiasts enjoy the game of bingo because you can win big jackpots while communicating with others in a social setting but which game type should you choose, online or traditional?

Traditional Bingo Overview

The physical game has declined somewhat over the last decade and in the UK, this can be attributed to a number of key factors. The smoking ban had a massively detrimental effect on traditional bingo halls and while you will still find bingo clubs all over the UK, their numbers have declined dramatically and there are less than 400 halls now left in Britain.

However, many still enjoy the physical game due to the social interaction that it offers and companies such as Mecca and Gala still offer plenty of traditional physical bingo halls all over the country where you can go and enjoy the game with others. A quick Google search will point you in the right direction of your nearest bingo hall.

Online Bingo: Unlimited Options

Online bingo always tries to capture the atmosphere of the real game and some players simply want to enjoy the game from the comfort of their sofa and this is why they choose online bingo. The online variant has a bit of everything and that’s why we love it so much. Players can enjoy jackpot games, promotional offers and a social bingo lobby all from their computer, laptop or mobile device.

Land-based bingo games are set to fixed schedules but you don’t have this issue with online bingo as players can play at any hour of any day. Additionally, physical bingo requires you to play the bingo game that is presented to you whereas with the online version you can choose from a range of games (90 ball, 75 ball, 30 speed ball etc.).

Final Decision

In all honesty, we love both versions of the game and if you have never tried the physical game before then we would recommend gathering a couple friends and trying it out. It’s great fun and offers the classic bingo experience. Players will continue to play the online version but definitely give the physical game a try if there is a bingo hall near you.

We hope this article has helped you realise that there are pros and cons to both versions and you should play the game that suits you most. So whether you are online or playing the physical game, good luck and we hope you win big!

How to Play the New Star Raiders Slot

When we first heard that Pariplay were launching a slot based on the Star Raiders game, we knew we had to have a few spins. The classic Atari game was cemented in pop culture in the eighties and just about everyone loved playing this game. If you want to take this game for a spin then check out our fab guide first.

Wagering

This game is created to look like an old style arcade game and you can use the buttons under the reels to do so. It’s almost like feeding coins into one of these machines, which helps to make the game feel much more authentic. There are always 243 ways to win in this game, but you don’t need to spend a lot to give it a whirl.

A minimum bet of 20p a spin is available in this game and it won’t take you long before you’re ready to kick it up a notch. Use the auto play feature if you want this game to play for you, it will come in handy on a long gaming session!

Rules

The aim of this game is to match up three or more of any symbol to win. As there are 243 paylines, they just need to appear adjacent or diagonally from one another, so you don’t need to worry about where they are positioned. The game is easy to play and it’s mobile optimised too, so you can continue to get playing on the go.

Design

The design of this game really harks back to the classic age of the arcade game, which will bring a sense of nostalgia to players. You’ll feel like you’re playing on a cabinet game and the designers have done a lot to make this the case.

The symbols themselves are a mixture of poker symbols and spacecraft, each of which have different multipliers attached. If you open up the paytable then you’ll be able to see them in full.

Bonus Features

One of the best parts of this game are the bonus features that you can trigger, these are:

Free Spins – Watch out for the golden star symbol as you play this game, as three of these will allow you to play in the free spins round. This starts the battle mode too, so you’ll be playing against the computer for more spins.
Wilds – The UFO symbol appears in the game as the wild symbol but it gets even better in the bonus feature. They’ll be held in place and allowed to help you out for even longer!

If you’re looking for some amazing gameplay then be sure to play on the Star Raiders slot right here at Cheers Bingo, good luck!
