Play Bingo on Mobile and Tablet
First published by Melissa Dawn and last updated
Smartphones are allowing us to live our lives on the go more and more nowadays. We can use them to organise our calendar, pick up emails no matter where we are and check social media. The mobile networks have lowered data costs year on year which has allowed us to use our phones without worrying about the costs but the biggest breakthrough is that everywhere we go now there is Wi-Fi.
Long gone are the days that we would have to plug a device into the phone line to use the internet. Almost everybody I know has a broadband router that allows the internet signal to be sent around the whole house. It means we can use any device connected to the internet in any room.
Also when we're out shopping or drinking coffee or paying a visit to a pub our phones are always telling us there are available Wi-Fi networks. And I don't know about you but I have the password for all my friend's Wi-Fi networks so whenever I'm at their's I automatically connect.
Mobile or Tablet?
Whether you choose to use your smartphone or a tablet is personal choice and they both have pros and cons. I always have my mobile phone with me so I have all the apps downloaded on there that I will ever need. The advantage of a tablet is that the screens are bigger so whatever you're doing, be it playing a game or checking Facebook, you can see it a lot more easily.
Bingo on Mobile and Tablet
So, once you've decided which device you're going to use, the next question would be browser or app? You can play bingo through your phone or tablet's browser, just as you would on your laptop or desktop computer. Most bingo sites have mobile-responsive websites that adapt to being used on a handheld device.
Our bingo partners have developed apps for you though so that your bingo game play is as easy and seamless as possible. The apps allow the games to play quickly with no snagging, they store your details for every time you play so it's makes logging in fast, easy and secure.
Whilst Apple will happily let their iPhone and iPad users download gambling apps from their Apps Store, Google are not so happy. They won't allow real-money gambling apps in their Google Play Store and so in order to download a mobile app as an Android user you will have to visit your chosen bingo site to carry out your download.
Android phones are usually set to only accept downloads from the Google Play Store. You can easily change this in your phone's settings though. Go to Settings > Security and tick the following box:
Tick to allow installation of applications from both trusted and unknown sources.
A notification will appear:
Installing from unknown siources may be harmful to your device and personal data. By tapping OK, you agree that you are solely responsible for any damagwe to your device or loss of data that may result from using these applications.
Our bingo sites are trusted partners and their apps can be trusted too. If you want to protect your phone though, just make sure to untick the Unknown Sources box once your app download is complete.
