When one considers all of the most popular games ever invented that are still popular today, few jump out at you as much as the game of bingo does. The name alone already sounds like more fun than you could have while still being sober. In fact the word bingo has been used so much in pop culture, as a reference to getting it right or winning the prize, that it is almost impossible to ignore the attraction and curiosity to the game itself.
Interestingly, the game of bingo seems to be generally dominated by women, which includes the modern online version of the game and the more traditional version, now often referred to as ‘brick and mortar’ bingo. With so many games like mobile slots UK dominated by men, it is always interesting to find one that is predominantly the domain of the fairer sex. One has to wonder why this is the case, what is it about bingo that is so attractive to women? In order to answer this question with a degree of accuracy, we need to break down several of its components and examine how they fit in with the needs and preferences of women.
The Game is Uncomplicated, Fun and Easy
One of the biggest attractions to the game of bingo for most women is the fact that the game is uncomplicated, easy to learn and a whole lot of fun to play. Not everyone enjoys overly complicated games that carry far too much risk or stress. In fact, the whole idea behind games like bingo is to get away from stress and the complications of life. Bingo is the perfect form of escapism, allowing the participant time to unwind and concentrate on nothing more than the next number being called out by the bingo announcer.
Social Gaming at its Finest
One of the biggest aspects or characteristics of bingo is its social aspect. Traditionally bingo games were held in community centres and churches, where ladies of the local community would get together to play bingo. Quite often the games were set up as a charity drive to raise money for one or other social need. Getting together to play bingo was not only a great way to touch base with friends in the community; it was also a way to raise money while still having fun.
While not all bingo games are about raising money for a good cause, the social element of bingo is always present, and one of the biggest attractions to the game. When bingo went online once the internet came along, many traditional bingo players worried that the game would lose its social value. However, the opposite couldn’t be truer. Online bingo games are now the most played of all bingo games in the world. Not only do they offer far more bingo cards and game styles, they offer a huge social network which is far greater than any brick and mortar bingo game could ever hope to achieve. Today’s modern bingo women are able to connect over continents and oceans, all with their shared love for the game of bingo.
