Bingo is one of the favored past times of millions of people around the world, and it has been for many years. Near enough everyone would have played bingo at some point in their lifetime and over the years the game has evolved in many ways to stay modern and relevant. From bingo halls to playing online, we’re now seeing more audiences opting to play on their smartphones, but why is mobile bingo so popular?

The first thing to note is that technology has rapidly evolved, especially over the last few years. Smartphones are now able to serve games in stunning high definition, while also being able to comfortably handle the demands of the gameplay. As a result, this has made playing on mobile much more of an attractive proposition. There’s also the convenience of playing on mobile too, as players can enjoy some bingo action wherever they are and whenever they want. This trend has been underlined with the unprecedented growth that established mobile bingo operator mFortune continues to enjoy.

Nowadays, many are more inclined to only use one device to play bingo. While playing on desktop has its merits, especially as bingo lovers can play alongside friends and family, everything that can be done on a computer can also be done on a phone. The app markets are also playing a crucial role too, especially Google Play, where real-money bingo apps are available to download and play within a matter of seconds.

Apps have also become huge for bingo players, especially as there are so many around right now. These apps allow devotees to pre-purchase tickets, link to membership cards if their app is by a company who also operate bingo venues and there’s still the social side of things to enjoy too. Bingo has always been known for being a great social occasion, and with the chat boxes and ability to connect social media accounts to apps, it still is, even when a player is playing using their smartphone at home.

What we’re also now seeing is a trend of large bingo operators around the globe making the move into the mobile world too. Many of them recognised a long time ago that gaming on smartphones was the future, and so they set about having their own apps built. People then had the option of playing on desktop or on mobile, with the majority now moving over to the latter.

There are many operators who are running exclusive mobile promotions and bonuses, which see players able to claim bonus cash and free tickets for playing via their smartphone. This has been integral in mobile bingo becoming very popular too, as members are able to pick up extra rewards for gaming on the go which they may not be able to if they were playing at a bingo hall or via desktop.

US-based mobile payment solution provider Citcon is expanding its business into Europe by bringing popular Chinese mobile e-wallets there with an eye on growing Chinese tourists, the company has said.

Citcon has set out a plan to facilitate European merchants to increasingly adopt some of the most popular Chinese mobile payment tools such as WeChat Pay, Alipay and China UnionPay that are currently used by hundreds of millions of Chinese customers, Xinhua news agency on Tuesday quoted Arlene Go, a Citcon official responsible for marketing communications, as saying.

European merchants can now take advantage of additional revenue streams from Chinese travellers, who are now the largest spenders and the fastest growing traveller segment in Europe, according to the company headquartered in Santa Clara, California.

“Chinese tourism is booming in Europe and we are proud to promote a smart lifestyle by providing travellers access to the digital wallets they prefer,” said Chuck Huang, Citcon Founder and CEO.

Huang said the surging influx of Chinese tourists into Europe in recent years has presented an opportunity for retailers in the region to “offer the lifestyle that travellers demand”.

Citcon is a cross-border mobile payment and commerce solution provider and a partner of Alipay and WeChat Pay in North America.

In March, it helped the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco launch electronic payment for its consular services including passport and visa processing for Chinese customers who are accustomed to doing transactions with WeChat Pay or Alipay back in China.

Citcon said its transaction volume and merchant base has grown 10 times since it was founded in 2015.
