Online Bingo in the United States
Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey are the three states where one can play on legally operated online bingo sites in the United States. While bingo is a rather popular game in many European and South American countries, commercial bingo is mainly offered as part of the offer in online casino sites in the United States or a licensed land-based gambling premise.
A recent study suggests that the US is paired with Japan for first place when it comes to online Bingo players, and is even ahead of the bingo-crazed UK. Still, there are not many online bingo sites hosted in the US. On the other hand, many online bingo sites accept American players and finding one is easy.
The best part about playing online bingo in the United States is that the games keep the social element that is so important to bingo. Chat rooms let players talk with each other all through the game. In the end, playing US internet Bingo is just like playing regular Bingo, the only difference is that the players never have to leave home.
Bingo in the United States
Invented in 1929, Bingo has since developed a number of variations. In general, American bingo is played with 75 balls and cards are squares of 5x5 with a Free Square in the middle. The game is often played in churches or charity organizations as fundraisers, but it is also popular to play for money. Commercial Bingo games are offered in most states’ casinos and Native American gambling establishments.
Overall, offline US Bingo is mostly a low stakes game, with a higher level of continuous popularity among middle-aged and elderly female players than among other segments of the population.
