Meccabingo launches iPhone bingo app

TAGs: iPhone, MeccaBingo

meccabingo-appIn the online gaming industry as a whole, bingo is one of the areas that continue to grow like never before. Whether this is because land-based bingo clubs have been leveled to make way for plush flats or that the attendance of older members of the population at bingo clubs has diminished is unclear, but bingo is currently very popular indeed.

Now many bingo players who possess an iPhone may well have been waiting for them to release a virtual dobber app for their bingo playing needs. This would obviously mean the need for graphic tablets for every player but hey there’s technological advances happening every day so that shouldn’t be a problem.

One of the latest technological advances involves the iPhone, bingo, but not a dobber in sight. Meccabingo have released the first real-money bingo app for the iPhone. That’s what they claim anyways.

“We wanted to focus on was the community side of bingo, with customers currently being able to chat to each other online in our bingo rooms, explained Claire Osbourne, head of bingo and games at Rank Interactive

“Building this new app has given us a fantastic opportunity to take this concept one step further with an integrated chat function, allowing players to continue to chat whilst playing bingo wherever they are.”

This again illustrates how important mobile has become for the online gambling industry, and now with iPhone customers able to play bingo straight from their phones it shouldn’t be long before everyone down at your local bingo club will have an iPhone.
