Bingo bliss

Bee, eye, en-gee-oh! As much as I like the action of slots, video poker and table games, sometimes it’s nice to take a break and relax with a bit of thoughtless fun. One way to do that is to sit back and play a few rounds of bingo. It’s all pure luck, but also a lot of fun.

Bingo has been in its current form since the 1920s, and its popularity has seen a massive boost thanks to the game that can now be played online. I still remember the Friday nights of my youth when my mother got dressed, grabbed her cigarettes, and went to the bingo halls with a couple of her friends. I always wanted to go. The whole thing seemed so mysterious to me, but I was too young. When I was finally old enough to join in, my mother had given up her bingo evenings.

It was not until bingo surfaced that I thought about the game. On a Friday night, in a fit of nostalgia, I signed up for an online account and started playing. I found myself regularly when I needed a bit of stress relief. When I play now, it’s always at Platinum Play. I think it’s great that you do not have to break the bank to play there and there is always a game available.

When I sit there waiting for the last ball to display my number and fill in the pattern, I realize how much this simple game must have done to keep my mom away from the drudgery of being a woman and all those years to stay at home. The good news is that I have introduced your bingo, and now we try to go online and play together whenever our schedule fits. I almost feel like being a little girl again, but this time I’m allowed to meet my mother.
