Unlike in regular bingo halls where balls are used to call out the numbers, online bingo sites use a system where the numbers are randomly generated. Other than that, all the other traditional rules of bingo haven't changed.
There are numerous online features that players can benefit from, such as auto daubing, where your numbers are marked for you as they are called so that you just have to sit and watch.
Talking is strictly prohibited during the game in bingo halls. Whereas, many online bingo sites have chatting features which is an amazing dimension to the game of bingo wherein the players can interact with each other and create different communities and all the players can chat while on the game.
Its common to see players congratulating each other on their wins. Like in instant messaging, online bingo too has its own acronyms which are often used in bingo chat rooms. This creates a friendly and communal atmosphere amongst the players.
When a number of different sites are playing for the same numbers for the same jackpot, it means that they are a part of a bingo network. Most sites will have lots of promotions, bingo rooms and chat rooms to socialise in. This enables more players in a chat room which results in more sizable jackpots to win. This is known as White Label Gaming.
