Bingo For Sore Losers

We all know one. Those people who just can’t play fair, and they somehow manage to end up ruining games for everyone else who’s playing them. Whether at home with the family playing an innocent game of Monopoly at Christmas, killing time on the train with a round of  Crazy Eights, or worse, at a public bingo hall? Some individuals just can’t get away from being a sore loser, or playing in a way that lacks any community spirit.

These kinds of people make ideal online bingo players. Heck, if things don’t go their way during a game, they can shout and scream as much as they like, throw their toys out of the pram etc, and no-one else will be affected by their antics. Finally.

If you’re a sore loser, look into how to play online bingo here.

An example of someone who should only play bingo at home is ex-bingo hall security guard Austin Whaley, from Covington, Kentucky. The young man shouted out bingo in the middle of a game for a bit of a laugh, but ended up being banned from uttering the word bingo for six months after he was prosecuted for disorderly conduct. It wouldn’t have got to this stage had Whaley been big enough to apologize to the players he’d upset during his outburst, but when asked to do so he refused. The police officer who had been called to the bingo hall then had no option but to charge Whaley with disorderly conduct, which is how he wound up in court.

Whaley’s not the only person ever to spoil a game of bingo, of course. Other disputes over the game of bingo have been reported over the years, one of the most recent was in Ashland, Missouri. Three women on the way home from the bingo hall started arguing about how to split their $200 win, when one woman attacked the other two with a pair of scissors. The victim ended up needing 32 stitches to her face and the alleged attacker is facing assault charges.

Not exactly a friendly end to a night out.

Of course, online bingo isn’t just for poor sports. Anyone and everyone can enjoy games of online bingo at a time and in a place that suits them. That’s the beauty of the online bingo sites. Most operate a 24 hours a day games schedule, so you can login and start playing whenever the mood takes you. Just take a look at the schedule and choose the game you want to play. If you see a game scheduled for a time that doesn’t suit you to sit and watch it ‘live’ you can always pre-buy a ticket and check in later to see how you did. If you are lucky enough to have a win, it will be credited to your account automatically.

And for those people who just can’t play fair, then playing online is a great has to be the safest option…
