Android has fast become the most popular operating system in the world for mobile devices, including tablets and readers. This poses huge opportunities for fun and even some real money prizes if you are a bingo enthusiast with a broad attention span or you’re somewhat lucky.
As an open sourced operating system based partially on Linux, Android does not require its software designers to purchase code in order to operate within its framework. The makers of Android have published its code so that it is available to everyone.
This allows a continuous flow of software applications that you can find, mostly for free to download at the Google Play store. Bingo apps for online play are no exception.
A quick perusal of all the bingo games on Android will quickly show the huge variety of apps available. Here are some of the highlights:
In addition to the free applications available from Google Play, you can also play bingo online at your favorite casinos while using your mobile device with an Android operating system. Many such casinos will feature an Android compatible app that you can download and install for free from their website.
Even if your favourite online casino does not have a compatible application to install on your tablet or smart phone, you almost always have a no download version that you can play through a browser with flash or java platforms.
With so many options abounding, it’s good to try out multiple games and meet the people you find online there. It is like joining any other kind of community–you want to make sure it’s the right fit. The beauty of the Android apps system is that so many of your bingo applications are free so you can try them all with minimal fuss and find the games that are to your liking.
If you are new to playing online for real money, you may experience moments peculiar to the online experience where the announcer stutters through a sequence of numbers with nary a pause in between. This is usually the result of lag time in the connection, which could be on your end but as likely as not on someone else’s end as well. If this happens, double check your cards and make certain you have not missed any numbers. In games where this happens playing multiple cards becomes exceedingly difficult.
Despite the level of difficulty, if you feel you have the attention span and concentration skills, play with multiple cards when you want to win more than you want to interact with others. Multiple cards mean you have multiple chances at winning before others, so you can achieve a slight statistical advantage over most players.
You may even find that playing multiple bingo cards at once can train your brain to increase your concentration skills. In this case your Android tablet or smart phone becomes a tool for increasing your brain power as well as a mobile gaming device!
