Mobile Bingo Apps
The gold rush to move online bingo to mobile is on and that means many brands and operators striving to release compatible versions of their software for use on android, tablet, iPhone and iPad. Different networks are approaching this in different ways. For example, Cozy Games and Dragonfish are developing mobile friendly sites whilst Virtue Fusion brands are looking at downloadable apps. Below are just some of the current sites that offer bingo as an app, on mobile or tablet.
Downloading Bingo Apps
Using an app is incredibly easy. You simply download from the android or iPhone app store and install. If you've previously registered at the bingo site then it's just a case of logging in with your username and password. Most sites do not require you to have a seperate login or username. In general the games that you can play via the bingo app will be the same as the web version. In our opinion playing via mobile is a little bit tougher as the things do get squashed in, however tablets are a perfect medium.
Some sites, such as Gala Bingo, even offer a QR code (those square bar code things) for you to scan and download their app. You will need a QR code scanner on your mobile to use this. Alternatively you may be able to download the required apps by requesting a text message via the brand websites.
Recently Cassava/888 sites such as Moon Bingo and 888 Ladies have introduced mobile versions of their games. You don't need a download for these sites - you simply go to the site and will be invited to add a bookmark to your screen. From there you can login and play in a limited number of rooms and play a selection of their slots. One thing to be aware of is that you may be able to deposit via your mobile but you may have to cash out any winnings via your PC.
Should You Play Via Mobile
The are advantages of playing games via mobile or tablet. You can pre-buy cards anytime and anywhere and you can enjoy playing on the go or just away from the PC. As you are playing the same games you're not missing out on big jackpots and sometimes you can collect extra bonuses via mobile. The downside is size - as mentioned mobile versions can be cramped and things like chat hard to work with. Plus there's an issue of temptation or addiction to be taken into account.
