A report has recently shown that, contrary to belief, the number of people who gamble online and have developed a gambling problem is in the region of 1%. This is compared to 6-9% who has a drink problem.
In fact it may surprise some readers that there is now evidence to show that playing online bingo actually helps to stave of degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. It appears that scare stories are everywhere you look nowadays when all the evidence shows that gambling, in general, is a wonderful and entertaining recreation to take part in.
The real evidence shows that any extended problem is usually overstated, and it seems that we never hear about the positive side of gambling, which far outweighs the negative.
The majority of bingo players play for fun, but there will always be a percentage of the adult population that finds their gambling gets out of hand, yet this occurred long before the online gambling facilities came to our screens.
There are a few pointers to take into consideration when playing games online, and if you take note and stick to a few rules, you should find that no problem will occur at all.
Look at your money that you play with. You should not expect to win as you are playing on a game of chance. Of course luck plays a part, but always remember if you went to the cinema, you would not expect to have the ticket money in your pocket at the end of the night.
The same should be thought of the money you play with. Any win is then a terrific bonus which adds to the fun of the game. Bingo is an entertainment outlet, with opportunities.
So it seems that your online bingo is healthy and enjoyable entertainment at the tip of your fingers!
