Gaming is a varied and eclectic word that covers a multitude of genres and platforms.
A gamer might be someone who ploughs hours of their time into a role-playing game, or someone who interacts with their friends on a first-person shooter. They could play online, or offline, and they may play games that reflect their interests in real life.
That could be games such as those featured in our article The Best Free Flight Simulator Games of 2020, for those who feel they missed their calling as a pilot in life. It may be a gamer wanting to replicate another pursuit they enjoy doing in the ‘real world’, such as casino games, or bingo.
Bingo is a hugely popular pastime that originates from 16th century Italy, but found popularity in the early 50s across the UK and the US. Whilst bingo may have been around for centuries, Foxy Bingo explains how it moved online in 1996, opening up a whole new world for players wanting the bingo experience. As technology has developed, the need to attend bingo halls has diminished and players are able to enjoy the bingo experience at home, in the comfort of their own surroundings.
Recent developments in technology have meant many mobile devices now support apps to bring the bingo experience to players, encouraging prizes, social interaction and, of course, a lot of fun. That accessibility is ensuring the industry goes from strength to strength. Globe Newswire reveals that the worldwide online gaming market is continuing to grow, registering a CAGR of 11.5% between 2020 and 2027.
With such strong growth within the industry, competition for bingo apps is strong, and there are plenty to choose from. That is why we have selected four of the best bingo games you can download for your mobile device today, to ensure you have the best experience whether at home, on the bus or on a break at work.
Bingo Abradoodle mixes bingo with a cute interface that is typical of many mobile games these days. With a jaunty tune and plenty of options to play, it is a fun and relaxed bingo game that does not tax the brain too much. It would certainly appeal to a casual player looking for fun, rather than a serious player looking to win real money. You can obtain power-ups to boost your chances of winning and there are lots of unlockable items to keep you coming back for more.
Bingo Bash is another fun version of bingo with a social element too; you can link it to your Facebook account to play with friends if you so desire. Bingo has always been a social game, often a game would be the social highlight of the week, so it is a nice touch to see that replicated in the game. Like the previous title, it has daily power-ups and boosts and lots of rooms for a variety of play.
Bingo PartyLand 2
Bingo PartyLand 2 develops the social aspect further, with a real-time multiplayer mode and several tournaments and events to take part in. It is similar in terms of presentation to the other two titles, with a cute interface and catchy background tune which enhance the game’s visual appeal. There is also an increased focus on collectables, which gives you more to aim for than simply winning a game.
Bingo Showdown is something a little different, as it is not purely focused on the bingo. There are elements of speed to the play too, and there are plenty of opportunities for social interaction. The title boasts cross-platform support between Facebook and mobile apps, as well as offering offline support as well. It is free to play, but you can only play a few per day, so whilst it is fun, do not expect to whittle away the hours.
