» Social Bingo

Social should mean friendly, fun and maybe a little fabulous too. Social bingo apps like Zynga and Bingo Bash are helping millions make friends and inject a few extra fun times into our lives. So how friendly and fun are the top games. We review them all here.

Free or For Real?

Social should also be free. But free isn’t a great way for businesses to make money. It’s time for us and them to think about whether to play just-for-fun or to find a real money bingo app that we can play for free too.

Social bingo sites will be hoping that they have struck the perfect balance by providing a safe, secure place to play bingo with our friends while also offering people the occasional chance to win big.

The nice thing about social gaming in general is that with the emphasis on being sociable people are less likely to develop a gambling problem. And we can all help to make this happen – keep half an eye out for your friends when playing and let them know if they are getting in too deep.
