Electronic Bingo basically refers to playing bingo on computer/ electronic devices, in order to remove human errors of manually handling more than one card simultaneously and increasing the efficiency of the player. Since Bingo is a popular and well-known game, there is a need for easier devices and methods which provide the player with a multiplicity in the chances to win. The greatest advantage of electronic bingo is that it removes the chances of missing a bingo, irrespective of the number of cards being played. It also saves one from the embarrassment of a fake call or a “bogey”. One is just supposed to sit, hear the caller call out different numbers,  which will be highlighted on the player’s screen and punch the corresponding keys on their respective machines and shout out ‘bingo’ when he/she manages to strike off any pre decided number pattern. You can play electronic bingo at state-of-the-art "Texas Charity Bingo" halls located in Killeen, Copperas Cove, Bryan and Georgetown.

There are two possible ways of playing electronic bingo i.e. by making use of either hand held bingo devices or video bingo machines.

Hand held bingo devices: Computers are revolutionising all aspects of human life, including bingo. More and more bingo players these days are opting for portable and hand held, easy to use bingo devices which allow the players to play multiple cards/tickets at the same time with a minimum of human effort and zero errors. With the catching of the upcoming trend, nearly 50 percent of the players in most bingo halls are opting for these devices over the traditional manual method. The greatest advantage of these devices is their ‘tracking mechanism’, making use of which even the new and inexperienced players stand as good a chance at winning as the experienced players. A major added benefit is that players with physical disabilities can enjoy the game which was not possible with the manual method. Though, the regulation of playing cards allowed per player is decided by each hall individually, but many of these devices have the efficiency to play up to even 200 cards a day.

Video bingo machines: Another latest and upcoming hi-tech technique of playing bingo is by making use of the video bingo machines, which closely resemble video slot machines. One video bingo game costs ranging from one quarter to a dollar. The general payout of a bingo machine varies from eighty to ninety percent in terms of winning. In order to claim his/her winnings, the player is supposed to push the “cash out” button available on the screen. This will provide him/her with a cash ticket which can be swapped for money by the player at the end of the game.

Electronic bingo is fun, comparatively easier, more efficient and a technical way of playing the game as compared to the traditional methods of manually playing. You can play both manual and electronic bingo at Texas Charity Bingo Halls located in Killeen, Copperas Cove, Bryan and Georgetown in Texas.
