Are bingo sites that require you to download them worth it?

By Becky Mosley - July 25 2008

Research shows a lot of people are put off when online bingo sites require you to download a program to play. I think a lot of the problem is down to paranoia and scare-mongering from the media. People are quite often scared that the file they download will be some sort of money grabbing scheme or spyware. Sometimes people just can’t be bothered, their experience with installing software in the past has put them off. I’ve been taking an in-depth look at these sites to find out what they are really like. Bingocafe have an amazing bit of software where you get immerse yourself in a 3D world and chat to other members. It’s really strange walking past people on the stairs and having a chat and it really makes you feel involved.

Next I tried King Jackpot but this seemed to be exactly the same software but obviously with different offers, still definately worth installing.

FinallyI tried Blackpool Club Bingo, at first I encountered a few problems with my anti-virus software flagging the download as potentially unsafe but it was all just my virussoftware being too protective! Anything thats bingo related is treated with caution. This is obviously one of the big problems Online Bingo sites face. I have been informed by Blackpool Club Bingo that this issue is being looked into.
Once I had installed the software I was really impressed with the quality of the graphics. It all has a very classy feel. Another great thing about this site is that you get £21 to play free which obviously really adds to the enjoyment.

In summary I feel that people are missing out with these download experiences, partly because virus software isn’t intelligent enough to know when software is legitimate and partly because users don’t know what the benefits of downloading bingosoftware brings. Better graphics, faster gameplay and a more immersive experience.Don’t get me wrong there are sites out there that are just there to deceive people and we all need to be careful but luckily you haveus, guide you in the choices you make!
