From Land To Online to Drive-In Bingo

When is the last time you walked into a fast food restaurant or even a bank for that matter. We are spoiled with drive-up service. Ordering a hamburger and shake right from your car window is the ultimate convenience. In fact, what to eat or where to eat hinges on whether or not there is a drive thru. Need to make a quick deposit in your bank account? Pull up to an automated service and the most tasking thing your going to have to do is roll down your window. We live in the fast line with everything accessible at our finger tips.

The wonderful world of bingo is no exception when it comes to accommodating the player. Online bingo became the modern convenience to land based bingo halls. Moving from the brick and mortar hall and bringing it straight to your living room gave freedom and luxury without ever having to leave home. This gave bingo halls strong competition. With the smoking restrictions placed in public places a new concept is on the rise.

If you see a big silver screen in the middle of a large field, don't set your sights on a movie and a box of popcorn. This is reserved for the avid bingo player. Drive-in bingo is the ingenious idea that has taken Ireland by storm. Roll your car around to the booth, purchase your bingo cards and watch the bingo balls dance on the big screen. Make sure your horn is in good working order, because when you have a winning card it's time to beep beep. Enjoy a night out on the town in your own intimate setting within your vehicle. Smoke your cigarettes, pipe, cigar or…let's not go that far and keep it legal! If you are hungry, a delivery boy will bring hot piping food over to you. What more could a bingo lover ask for.

One of the advantages to drive-in bingo is the low cost of overhead, allowing bigger prizes then most bingo clubs. Irish gambling laws set high standards with gambling guidelines and it is uncertain whether or not these operators are properly licensed. Some operators are currently working with the Gambling Commission to proceed with the legal licenses. Nevertheless players are more then amused and entertained with this new phenomenon. Thus far drive-in bingo can be found in Dublin, Meath and Wexford counties.

If it is good enough to by a hamburger and fries then it is good enough for the bingo player. Next time you drive thru your favorite fast food restaurant don't be alarmed if you are asked if you want a bingo card to go with that chocolate shake. The options are getting bigger and better for the bingo community.
