Gambling has been around for thousands of years, in one form or another, so when measured against that time-frame, online gambling can still be considered the baby in the field.

Bee, eye, en-gee-oh! As much as I love the action of slots, video poker and table games, it’s sometimes nice to take a break and relax with a little bit of mindless fun. One way to do that is to sit back and enjoy a few rounds of bingo. It’s all pure luck, but also a lot of fun.
Bingo has been around in its current form since the 1920s, and its popularity has seen a massive spike thanks to the game now being available to play online. I clearly remember the Friday nights of my youth, when my Mom would get dressed up, pack up her cigarettes, and head out to the bingo halls with a bunch of her lady friends. I always wanted to go. The whole thing seemed so mysterious to me, but I was way too young. By the time I was finally old enough to tag along, my mom had given up her bingo evenings.
It wasn’t until bingo started showing up online that I gave the game any real thought. One Friday night, in a fit of gin-fuelled nostalgia, I signed up for an online account and started playing. I found myself going back on a regular basis when I needed a little stress reliever. Now when I play, it’s always at Platinum Play. I love the fact that you don’t have to break the bank to play there, and there is always a game ready to go.
When I am sitting there waiting for that final ball to show my number and fill the pattern, I realize how much that simple game must have done to take my mom away from the drudgery of being a wife and stay at home parent for all those years. The good news is that I introduced her to Bingo, and now we try to get online and play together whenever our schedules match. It almost makes me feel that I’m a little girl again, but this time I get to tag along with mom.
