Have your friends commented that you’ve been a bit scarce lately? Ever since you discovered you can play online bingo whenever it suits you, you’ve had a world of games in your pocket or on your desktop. It’s time to get your friends to join you in a game of online bingo – here’s how to get them to do that.
Step #1: It’s the coolest game out there
You already know this of course, and if you drop by your local club or community centre regularly, your friends will probably agree. But now it’s official – bingo’s more popular than Andy Murray! That’s according to an article in the Mirror Online.
Your first step to getting your friends into online bingo is to let them know that the game’s made a spectacular comeback. So spectacular in fact that it’s bursting out of halls, clubs and community centres and finding its way into kitchens, living rooms and pockets big enough to hold a smartphone.
With all this new cool about, there really is no need for your friends to confine their delight to Tuesdays, 3 – 7pm (for instance). When they sign up to play online, they can choose to indulge whenever the fancy takes them. So go on, tell your friends it’s time they set their bingo balls free from the cage!
Step #2: Playing is easy as pie
It might be that enthusiasts of the traditional game are intimidated at the thought of moving their hobby online, but nothing could be easier than playing bingo online. The second step in getting your friends to play online, is to let them know it’s as easy as pie and very similar to playing at your local club. You could give them these eight stress-free steps.
- First, register with Mecca Bingo. You’ll be guided through this simple process that takes just minutes to complete.
- Once verified, log in to your account and deposit some money to play with. Keep in mind that no matter how big or small your budget, you’ll have plenty to choose from in our bingo lobby. You can play from just 1p, and VIPs often get access to special free rooms. There are plenty of games playing round the clock so you are sure to find something to your tastes at a price that suits your pocket.
- Now open the lobby by hitting a “Play Bingo Now” button.
- The rooms will be displayed along with ticket prices and the prize on offer for the next game.
- Find a game that takes your fancy and join the room.
- Before the next game starts, choose the number of tickets you want to play with. The maximum amount you can buy will vary from game to game.
- Wait for the game to start and see if your numbers come in!
- Once the game has started, your numbers will be marked off automatically on your tickets, and you’ll be alerted if you get a win. If you want to try another game, just head to the lobby to see what else is on offer.
From now on it’s easy to play wherever you are, even on your mobile when you’re on the go – Mecca Bingo is just a swipe away. All you’ll need to do to get started is to type meccabingo.com into your browser and you have fun at fingers.
Step #3: Traditionalists can breathe a sigh
Online bingo combines the best of the traditional game with the variety and excitement of new-age play-action – so traditionalists can breathe a sigh of relief. Although there are so many variations of the game these days, the basic features that originally made the hobby so hugely popular in the sixties, are still the foundation of the modern game.
One way to introduce reluctant traditionalists to the joys of digital is to organise an evening or event – birthday, hen party, work night out or an informal get together with friends – at your local Mecca club for a fun session and sumptuous meal. This is a great way to introduce them to some of the newer versions of the game – from rock and roll bingo that involves players marking off music tracks on their scratchcard as they hear them, to games like rock, paper, scissors. While traditionalists can still listen in silence to the caller, players looking for something different can play on an electronic tablet that keeps track of their numbers while they chat or text in a comfortable lounge area. In fact, more people and a whole new generation of enthusiasts are frequenting their local clubs after getting into the game online in the first place.
Once a die-hard traditionalist has sampled all the many new ways to indulge their love of the game, they’ll be eager to get online and take their hobby to the next level!
Step #4: A world of delights await
One of the most attractive reasons for going digital is the variety on offer – which is your next step to getting your friends to play online.
When you play online bingo, you can enjoy all the aspects of traditional games as well as a great selection of unique online offerings, chat rooms, and quick and easy prizes. This keeps things fresh and exhilarating with regular promotions that put you in the running to earn bonuses, win cash and prizes like holidays and cars. Many online sites use a jackpot system that is similar to slots – the progressive jackpot. Progressive jackpots place a percentage of each ticket sold for a jackpot game into a pot. This pot continues to grow until one lucky player scoops the lot.
If you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, you have a chance of winning huge jackpots and with all those fun-packed games, you are a winner even when you lose. Yes, this may be a game of chance but one thing’s for sure – you’ll never be bored while you’re playing!
At Mecca Bingo we work hard to keep it fresh and give you endless opportunities and ways to enjoy the pastime. You can test your skills in our exclusive X Factor room and spin The Winning Wheel, or try out our Scratch offering that combines all the fun of your favourite game with fabulous online scratchcard gameplay.
Step #5: Get them online with a party
One concern your friends may have is that when playing online, you lose the social side of the game – the reason many people start playing in the first place. This simply isn’t the case. In fact, you’ll have more opportunities to interact and make friends when you’re online. Thanks to the web, you are connected to more enthusiasts from all over the country. If one of your main reasons for playing is the opportunity to enjoy a chat and a laugh with friends, you can engage in one of our chat rooms – our Chat Hosts will always give you a warm welcome so you’ll get the hang of it in no time at all.
Still a few doubters out there? Why not host an online bingo party? After a welcoming drink and a few snacks, you can walk your friends through the simple registration process – when you all play on the same site you can compete against each other. Keep in mind that you’ll need to ask each friend to make a deposit into their account to get started. Make sure you’ve chosen the right location for your party. Your home is a great idea – the perfect place to show just how comfy it can be to play bingo in your socks! Set up a table for laptops and make sure there are plenty of comfy sofas or rest areas if anyone wants to take a break. A party isn’t complete without traditional snacks so bring on the pretzels, popcorn and peanuts, battered onion rings and gambling-themed cupcakes. Since your friends are about to fall in love with a new generation game, you might want to include the kale chips!
