I feel like I've said it before, but you know what? That's
right, say it with me. "I'm 'gonna say it again!" Since this
is the bingo section of Sweetie's blog and all, I'm dead set
on talking about online bingo. And you know what? So is
everybody else. Lately, when I go searching through the Google
news results for online gambling articles to read up on, it
seems there are more articles about online bingo
than online casino gambling.
I guess it shouldn't be that much of a surprise,
considering how much online bingo has taken off with the
internet gambling crowd over the last five years or so.
Especially in the UK, where both the online gambling
industry has been liberalized and bingo has long been a
popular game, certain internet bingo rooms have literally
become top competitors for the best online casinos. Citing the news
once again, the amount of promotions, bonuses and
tournaments alone that are popping up at leading bingo rooms
might just have you thinking these bingo destinations are even
doing better than the online casinos.
Here's a little taste of all the online bingo news I just
saw on a single page of news results: The premiere of a new
British based bingo room, Graces Bingo (offering a 300%
welcome bonus and £10,000 every week in guaranteed
jackpots), a new no-deposit bonus worth £15 from Bingo.com,
an announcement from GTech G2 that several online bingo room
partners will soon be offering PayPal services to real money
bettors, a massive new bonus worth 900% from Gone Bingo, and
new free games from Daily Record Bingo.
That's a lot to chew, I know. I mean, who even considers
offering a 900% bonus? Definitely not any online casino I
know. But wait, just as soon as I say this, my other hand
another search window to check this offer out for meself. And
sure enough, this is really a three-part welcome bonus worth
300% each. It goes to show, always check the source of your
news. And even if the source is credible, read the fine
print for yourself.
Alright now, don't get me started. Deceptive promotions
and misleading marketing just makes me sick. Call me crazy,
or call me stubborn (you can even call me Sweetie...well,
'cause that's my name), but I will never step foot (albeit a
virtual foot) in an
online casino or bingo room that is guilty of deceptive
marketing. It's just too insulting to my intelligence
- or what's left of it anyways. That said, it should really
be insulting to you too. In the case of the above-mentioned
news, it is explained later on down in the article that this bonus is
really only worth 300% (not so deceiving after all). And let's
face it. A 300% bonus isn't bad for an online bingo room.
That's lot's of free cards and many hours of some of the
best gaming entertainment the internet has to offer.
So, to sum things up - because believe me, I won't sum it
up unless I hear myself say that I am summing it up -
there's lot's of stuff happening in the online bingo world
right now. Just take a look at the recent news results in
Google or your favorite online gambling news portal to stay
in the know.
