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!

Join us in our New Speed Bingo Room

Here at Cheers, we always want our players to have the best online bingo experience possible which is why we offer a range of games to suit every type of player. Speed Bingo is a lot of fun and can really be a great way to win some big jackpots in no time at all!

It is fast and furious so you need to have your wits about you to succeed at this game. Not to worry, though, as we have all the details on how and where to play below.

When and Where?

Our latest Speed Bingo game is playing out in our Glitz & Glam bingo room between 8pm and 9pm every single day. This means more bingo, more excitement and more prizes Ticket prices will be priced between just 2p and 5p so you really don’t have any excuses not to get involved!

The game itself is called Power Hour so be sure to look out for it as soon as you enter the Glitz & Glam room. If you have never played speed bingo before then fear not as we have all the details on how to play below.

What is Speed Bingo?

Speed Bingo can take many forms and guises and some players may recognise it under the name 30 ball bingo on other sites. The structure of the game involves a fast pace with the aim of creating a lot of excitement. The basic premise is to take the standard game and speed it up so that each game lasts around 30 seconds. Things happen extremely quickly so players need to be on their toes to keep up.

How to Play Speed Bingo

The rules are pretty straightforward and it is similar to 75 ball bingo but this game only uses 30 numbers with a smaller bingo card. As we mentioned it progresses much faster than a traditional bingo game. Speed cards consist of a 3×3 grid and there are 9 numbers as a result. Each column will have a random number with 1-10 in the 1st, 11-20 in the 2nd and 21-30 in the 3rd. Quite simply, the first player to fill the card wins the game!

Additionally, games are usually played for the full house which means that all numbers must be called. Some games do take this further and allow for wins with just a single filled line resulting in a win and with just three numbers to watch out for on some games, it can become normal for players to buy multiple cards per game.

Why is Speed Bingo Special?

Not all players have the time to play bingo and Speed Bingo offers a fantastic alternative. Games do not take long at all so those with restricted playing time can get in on the action and still win big. Additionally, speed bingo cards can be some of the most affordable on the web and it is not uncommon for tickets to cost 1-2p.

So what are you waiting for? Join us in the Glitz and Glam room for some speedy fun.
