|FreeBingo, the UK’s first free-to-play 90-ball online bingo game, has officially been launched this week.|
Using a unique currency called FB£ (FreeBingo Pounds) players can purchase game cards and watch as the game balls are pulled by a computer and announced by a Caller using old-style rhyming.
Phil Fraser, managing director of FreeBingo, said, ‘Currently we believe about 100,000 people play online bingo in the UK, but with the introduction of free sites like ours, we expect this to rise to around half a million by the end of the year.’
FreeBingo would seem to be Internet gaming at its least harmless. Players at FreeBingo are given a balance of ‘Free Bingo Pounds’ when they join the site – and at the end of every month, each FB£ the player has earned will qualify as an entry to a prize draw, which still maintains the competitive thrill of gaming, but without the need to risk money.
