USA bingo sites for American bingo players
Despite attempts by the US government to block banks from accepting online casino transactions, the American online gambling market remains steady and well supported throughout the online casino industry. In fact there is one sector that is positively booming and that is online bingo. Bingo has always been extremely popular in America and the American public have been quick to take up the challenge of online bingo, with new bingo sites accepting us players appearing regularly.
The new surge of American bingo sites are not normally based in the USA and are certainly licensed there but they are being specially targetted towards catering for American bingo players and the sort of bingo experience they are used to in the US.
There are a number of differences between an American bingo site and a regular international bingo site targetted at a multicultural audience though this is by no means clear-cut, some American style sites may not have all these features.
This is a summary of what you might be expected to find on a typical USA bingo site:
i) American bingo sites are aimed at the US market. And because they’re American sites the majority of players come from the USA! So you are going to be playing with and of course chatting and engaging with other Americans when you play.
ii) All the games are played US dollars so the prizes, cards and all the bonuses and perks are all expressed in US dollars rather than Euros, Sterling or other international currencies giving the games a specifically American feel.
iii) Bank transactions are overwhelmingly in US dollars so your deposits and withdrawals will almost always be in $ no matter where the site is based. You might have the option of Sterling or Euros but there will always be a US dollar option for American facing sites which is the default.
iv) These American based bingo sites accept the usual US payment options such as Visa and Mastercard as well as the e-wallets still supported for US players such as epassporte.
v) The chat hosts are usually hired from America and are actually living there which means that the chat and culture and popular references will all have an American bias so US players will feel right at home as if they were in their own home town bingo hall.
vi) Because these new US bingo sites are specifically targetting American players you will find that their branding features such symbols as the Empire State building, Las vegas, Mount Rushmore, Atlantic City etc to give a uniquely American feel.
vii) American bingo sites may well offer the 90-ball UK version of the game but will certainly have the traditional American 75-ball bingo game. In fact, most online bingo sites favor the 75-ball style which uses 5×5 cards which is the game most American bingo fans will be familiar with. The 90-ball UK version has (obviously) 90 balls and the cards only have 15 numbers but the majority of bingo sites and certainly the American themed ones will offer both versions of bingo.
viii) Customer service will of course be in English and if you are lucky the customer service team will even be based in the US. In any case they are fully briefed on the high standards of service expected by Americans and you will be unfortunate to stumble across a customer service representative who doesn’t understand your query.
Out of these points only the first couple are guaranteed – that they are marketed towards Americans and will be sure to attract US players and have mostly Americans in the games which will be exclusively in American dollars. The other features are not so certain and if there is any point which is of particular importance to you as a player you should check that with the casino or a review site exclusively focussed on US bingo sites before joining.
