The biggest innovation in online bingo over the past few years has definitely been live bingo sites. One of the key elements of traditional, land-based bingo is having a live caller. The companies behind online bingo sites are trying to replicate the traditional gaming experience as much as possible, and so it’s only right that they’ve developed games with live callers.
Even though online bingo is very popular indeed, land-based bingo is still favoured by many. Part of the reason why so many people still play bingo in traditional casinos is because of the overall experience, and having a live caller is a key part of that experience.
Many casino sites started adding live games in an attempt to recreate the experience of visiting a traditional casino. In 2010, the bingo industry followed suit, when Crown Bingo, using the Best Bingo Network, started offering bingo games with live callers. This paved the way for other sites to do the same: Bingocams even takes things further by having the game’s winner shown live on the site as they react to winning. Many sites offer live elements, such as events with live chat hosts and video links to players can chat live to some of the site’s promotional staff.
One thing that you might find curious is that none of the major bingo sites currently have games with live callers. The market for live bingo is still growing, so it’s probably only a matter of time before all sites have live callers. In the meantime, the larger sites still have plenty of interactive features, such as chat hosts, who are there to oversee games and answer any questions you may have. Having a live caller adds an extra level of authenticity to the online bingo experience. It makes the experience much more like the traditional way of playing bingo and is sure to get more popular in the future.
