The Importance of Side Games at Bingo Gaming Sites

When the game of bingo made a smooth transition to the wonderful world of the internet in the late 1990’s, many of these sites were rudimentary online bingo rooms, offering straightforward games and tickets. It was only a few years later that online bingo became one of the fastest growing industries in the gaming world, offering players a fantastic opportunity to sit back and relax in their own living rooms, socializing with other bingo fans from all over the world and enjoying top quality bingo games in different variants and patterns.

In recent years, online bingo sites have realized the importance of providing side games in a bid to complement their bingo games. Through trial and error, bingo site operators have found what works for players and what doesn’t, and today the vast majority of online bingo rooms offer an excellent selection of casino games.  So what is so important of providing side games at bingo sites?


There is no doubt about it that an online gaming site that offers quality bingo games, as well as entertaining casino games such as slots, video poker and keno, will be more popular than a site that offers plain bingo. Those who play at online bingo sites naturally come for the bingo, but they like the fact that should they feel like a spin of the reels, they can do so at the site, without too much effort.


Once you’ve opened an account at an online bingo site, and then you feel like playing other games, the last thing you want to do is go to another site, open another account and start to play slots or keno. Having everything under “one roof” is liberating for the average bingo player, for whom time is precious commodity. Simply switch from bingo, to chatting, to slots, to bingo, to video poker…. it’s as simple as that.

Bigger Jackpots

While bingo games can pay out well, and there are some sites that offer bigger prizes than others, it can’t be denied that the big money lies in slot game jackpots, especially progressive games. What could be better than enjoying superior bingo games, and trying your luck at high-paying progressive slot games, practically simultaneously, on the same site, using the same account?
