Playing Casino Games and Slots at Online Bingo Sites:
5 Special Tips to Consider
Side-Games are great fun but pay special heed to tips 4 & 5
There's an impressive array of side-games available at most online bingo sites. You can usually choose from a variety of scratch cards, pull-tabs, slots, video poker, Keno, Roulette and other casino table games and most can be played at the same time as you're playing bingo.
TIP # 1
Don't bother downloading software. Most online bingo sites offer no-download side-games so you don't need to download anything (except for a FLASH layer which you likely already have.) The graphics of most of these games are fantastic - crisp and rich. -The variety of options is also amazing without the worry of downloading software.
TIP # 2
Slots - pace yourself if you play them. Slots at bingo sites are always very popular and a few sites offer some awesome, beautifully designed slot games that are a blast to play. Some sites host slots with progressive jackpots offering chances to win tens of thousands of dollars. A lot of people wager their bingo winnings on these progressive slots.
TIP # 3
Try Scratch Cards and Pull-Tab games as the pace can be slower than slots. They're the popular digital cousin of scratch & win tickets we all know and love/hate. They're really quite similar to slots but the play is slower and one in three cards is a winner. I don't play them often but a lot of people really like them.
Understand that the wagering requirements for side-games at bingo sites are REALLY high. Expect wagering requirements to exceed 20x your deposit. 35x is common. That means on a $50 deposit, you have to wager $1,000 - $1,750 in total before you can cash-out any winnings. $1,000 can be done when you're winning and spinning and winning and spinning but it can be hard to reach that and still have a couple hundred bucks to cash-out. It sucks but it's the industry standard. Good bingo sites will let you easily check what you've wagered since your last deposit.
TIP # 5
Include your side-games play when determining your bingo budget for the day, week or month. Side-games can offer extra entertainment and possible winnings while you play bingo but it's easy to chew through your bankroll playing these games because you can play many dozens or hundreds of times in a relatively short period of time. I admit that the games are fun and the potential winnings are exciting and very tempting but remember that your online bingo time should be affordable so don't go overboard. You've heard it before but only wager what you can afford to lose.
