Bingo Going Mobile Soon To Spark A Debate
Mobile bingo has come back into the spotlight thanks to Tombola Bingo readying plans to launch their mobile bingo app. This follows on from major names in the industry like Mecca bingo, Foxy Bingo and Gala Bingo unleashing a product into the mobile market as well. It is easy to see why this sort of opportunity would be attractive because whenever people get some free time, it is fair to say that they could be making better use of their time. A boring commute or waiting on others could be brightened up by enjoying a game on bingo on your smart phone or tablet.
Bingo wherever you go
The way we access the internet and engage with others is changing all the time and new technology products are leading the way for these changes. There is no doubt that tablets and smart phones are becoming increasingly more important for people with respect to accessing the internet and it makes sense for online bingo firms to tailor their products in this fashion. If they didn’t, customers would rightly complain about not being looked after properly.
It will not be long before the Daily Mail launches an attack on mobile bingo play saying it is tearing apart the fabric of British life. There is a sharp focus on the gaming industry at the moment and the Daily Mail has been at the forefront of highlighting all the negative issues without taking into consideration any of the positives. Clearly the newspaper has to provide its readers with what it wants but providing scare stories all the time is not the way to create debate and discussion around an important topic.
Another gaming issue that is coming into focus at the moment is the number of bookmakers on the High Street and the number of instant win games they have within their premises. A major TV show next week will focus on this and it is inevitable that all other forms of gaming will be looked at more closely. With many online bingo sites providing slots and instant win games alongside their bingo offerings, it is likely that this will come under scrutiny as well. As with most cases in life, there will be a select few people who have difficulties with these provisions but the calls to shut them down will harm a greater number of folk.
