Two of the hottest sectors in the online gaming industry include mobile gaming and social media. The industry has been able to harness the former, but social media has yet to be fully conquered and used to its full capacity by the industry. That’s changing fast.
Swiss lottery operator Swisslos has launched a new online bingo offering in what the company is calling an attempt to reach the Facebook generation. Swisslos figured out that like so many old products, going digital is the way of the future and ultimately the only way to survive.
The new online bingo offering Swisslos featured on Bingo.ch is designed to appeal to a Facebook generation that wouldn’t otherwise be playing bingo in some smoke filled hall.
The site appeals to the Facebook generation by combining the social aspects of the traditional bingo game with the aspects more familiar to the social media junkies, including chat rooms that allow for social interaction during game-play.
Facebook itself has cool gambling apps these days. For those of us who love to frequent various land-based casinos, there’s a way to keep track and to show your pals the venues you’ve visited. For land-based entities it’s a great way to start building an online presence.
The application is called “Places I’ve Played” with it, you can pinpoint each land-based or online place where you’ve gambled, tell your friends what it was like, and flag the places you’d like to visit next. If you don’t have this app, you might want to try it out.
