There are sites online like Mecca Bingo and Diva Bingo that offer Bingo from the comfort of your home. In the UK online gambling doesn't seem to be a problem, but here in the US it is totally not legal. I hate that. Why? Because I would LOVE to be able to play bingo online for money. When I used to live in NY I would go to the casino every couple months to their big bingo game at the Indian reservation. It was a blast. I guess our legislature figures we have Lotto and Mega Millions, but really it isn't the same.
Why is bingo different? It sure lasts longer than playing the lottery. When you play the lottery you simply pick out numbers and then watch to see if your numbers win. With bingo it is more interactive because you often have to make certain shapes and letters on your card and numbers are called more slowly. I would say bingo offers more anticipation than the lottery. I used to love the feel of the endorphins when I would be cased (bingo lingo for needing one number to win).
So, if anyone is listening, can you bring online bingo to the US? We could use a little fun, thanks.
