New Year Background
Last year, obviously we were quite excited about some of the hot trends in online bingo at that time, including the mobile revolution in bingo, value added to standard bonuses and even sites enticing new players with luxury vacations to win.
All those trends have surely played out nicely this year. 2013 was a watershed year for online gaming, across the board. There has been a wave of new ‘loyalty shops’ where you can redeem your points for prizes.
The Mightiest Trend of All
One mega-trend that emerged in 2013, and is an event that Web gamers have been waiting for a decade to experience … why, the massive update to the World Wide Web itself!
Didn’t catch that one in the news? This overshadows anything else we could mention about the development of bingo software, live bingo, new prizes and bonus schemes, new payment options and so on.
Basically, the Web’s native language (HTML or ‘hyper-text-markup-language’) was improved. It now includes all the multimedia powers that previously needed to be added to the Web by plugins, such as Flash.
Flash and all the rest are on the way out, folks. They served us well, despite the headaches with plugins. What all of this means? The Web has grown up. In 2014 we will be playing most of our bingo in the Web browser window. Simple!
There are many, many benefits. If you are a mobile bingo lover then you no longer need native apps clogging up your phone or tablet memory. If you are a desktop player, voila, no need to download the bingo software and keep it updated.
Everything happens on the Web, in the browser, where it now can happen for the first time in history.
Hot Sites for 2014
As you know, the tides of favour and also quality at the various bingo sites, even the best, often shift. Even the most popular destination can slip to 2nd or 3rd one year, only to surge up to the top again.
The sites we suggested you follow in 2013 included Glitter Bingo, the Canadian Parlay network and the 15Network with partner sites like Cheers Bingo and Bingo Mania. These have all maintained their standing, their great potential and they are forging ahead building trust and loyalty.
Other top bingo sites we now think you should check out or revisit in addition to those upstarts?
- All manner of Facebook Bingo, like GSN
- Social Bingo in general
2014 is going to have fierce competition amongst all the venues you find reviewed on New Bingo Sites.org. One site that is coming on strong again:
mFortune — In the permanent top-5, it could be said, this bingo spot needs no introduction. Even non-players know this brand, since it runs TV ads. And in this case, those ads point to online bingo of the highest quality.
The most important point about mFortune is that its £5 free + up to £200 in cash match at 100% is free of wagering requirements.
If you win a mega bingo jackpot on a card you bought with any of your free cash, at mFortune that win is yours immediately — no strings attached. If there is one trend we would like to see spread in 2014, it’s this! mFortune is leading the way.
