Many of you are probably aware of the main differences between US/Canada and UK online bingo. We favor the 75-ball variety, where you get 24 numbers on each card plus one free square to mark off, and the Brits like the 90-ball variety, which uses three rows with five numbers per card, and players can play with multiple cards for each game. However, in the same way that more and more Brits are discovering the fun of playing 75-ball games, the word is slowly spreading in America about the British version, and as a result, some bingo game sites like BingoMania.com are thinking about introducing more 90-ball games for their members.
Here at BingoMania.ca, we love sharing tips and best practices for discerning players. Today’s tip a checklist of features to keep an eye out for when joining a new bingo site.
Online bingo in Canada has swiftly become a hugely-popular recreational activity for thousands of people all around the country, and now, there’s more choice than ever before when it comes to websites to choose from, who all want your custom. Rather than rushing in and joining the first site that mentions a great-sounding introductory offer, it’s wise to consider the quality aspects of each of the sites you’re potentially interested in becoming a member of.
Not everyone is a born culinary god or goddess, but if you’re determined to get to grips with baking, it’s time to distinguish between your salt and your sugar and get busy in the kitchen. Birthdays are an excellent reason to dust off your apron and turn the cooker on, as almost everyone loves a slice of birthday cake. Plus, if your friend or family member is a big bingo fan, we’ve got just the thing for you to try out – a bingo card cake!
If you’ve suddenly broken out in a cold sweat at the prospect of taking on this impressive baking challenge, don’t panic. The joy of the American-style bingo card is that it’s rectangular in shape, so there’s no need to worry about round tins, shaving sections off, or having to create super sized, complex structures. Plus, if you’re worried about trying to ice the bingo numbers, you can always ‘cheat’ and buy ready-made iced numbers – simple!
Everyone likes to be rewarded for being a loyal customer, and many of us hold loyalty cards for our favourite stores and coffee shops that give us points towards free purchases, discounts and exclusive offers. Online bingo isn’t any different; after all, whether you spend $1 a week or $50, you’re still putting your cash towards your site of choice rather than somewhere else.
So, if you’re considering joining a Canadian Bingo site, one of the first things you should check is whether it offers a VIP or loyalty scheme. Many sites try to attract the attention of potential new members by advertising generous welcome bonuses and sign-up bonuses, which are all well and good; however, one year down the line, you don’t want to end up feeling unappreciated because you’ve not received any rewards since the day you signed up. So, if you join a site that doesn’t offer any incentives for you to stick around in the long term, it’s probably not even worth registering an account. Continue reading
Whether you’re new to bingo or you’re just joining a secondary site, one of the things that can leave you feeling at a total loss is when you’re prompted to pick a chat alias.
And no we’re not talking about Jennifer Garner’s old TV series Alias.
What is an Alias anyways?
An alias is necessary to allow you to be recognizable from other players in the rooms but it’s also a pre-requisite of most online bingo sites before you can complete the registration process for a new account. There’s no need to panic that your fellow players will be able to find out your real identity as your details cannot be released by your site of choice without your permission. However, as we’ll go on to explain later, you will want to be careful what name you choose to use in order to protect your identity as much as possible.
