You’re sitting on your sofa in the living room, surrounded by family, and everyone is using a range of mobile devices whilst watching the TV. Sound familiar? This popularity for mobile multitasking is not new, and the trend is going from strength to strength. Online bingo sites have definitely noticed!
More and more bingo sites are jumping on the mobile bandwagon and allowing you to use their sites on your mobile devices. Whether it’s an iPad, iPhone or Android phone that’s your preferred option, there are many sites you can enjoy whilst on the go.
Many bingo sites have Flash as required, and this isn’t supported on Apple devices. However, if you have an iOS device you can download an app if the bingo site offers it. If a site doesn’t have an app but is powered by Microgaming, which uses an HTML5 platform, then you won’t need to download any apps. Unfortunately Android on your phone doesn’t support Flash, and Google Play reportedly doesn’t allow real money bingo apps.

Ever since the technology of the mobile phone and tablet was established, it was clear that bingo could find ever new opportunities to branch out into different forms through varying media.
July Update 2019
Another decade is almost behind us and pretty much all online bingo have mobile bingo sites. Below we expand on our top 5 mobile bingo choices. Some brands will be familiar to you, others are brand new sites that are pushing the technological boundaries.
Top 5 Mobile Bingo Sites
Dazzle Bingo: A brand-new bingo site and a former brand-new entry. A huge new release, the popularity of this site was untested for a while. We are very impressed with the mobile offering so far. So for that reason, we have bumped it up into first place.
Vernons Bingo: Playful, purple and full of pugs. There’s really no other way to sum up the Vernons Bingo mobile experience. They also have the best £5 deposit around. For those reasons, they were top of our inaugural mobile bingo top 5. However, they haven’t done that well in the past couple of weeks so we hope for a rebound.
Buzz Bingo: Following its big online October launch, Buzz Bingo firmly cements its place in the mobile top 5. It’s the second Virtue Fusion bingo site in the top 3 after Vernons.
MrQ: We love you! A unique mobile site, it runs on entirely its own platform. You won’t see another bingo site like it!
Zoe’s Bingo: This mobile Dragonfish site feels like a bit of a veteran compared to the sites above. We offer an exclusive £5 deposit offer to complement the excellent mobile offering. For that reason, it remains entrenched in our mobile top 5.
About Mobile Bingo
Just as the invention of the internet was a revolution for bingo, marking the beginning of the online gaming experience, the mobile device has proved crucial in the growing success of online bingo.
With the ability to now play bingo on computers in the comfort of their own homes, people were no longer just content to make the sometimes long journey down to their nearest bingo hall. But as mobile device technology developed, so did peoples’ expectations of what it was capable of.
The mobile device has allowed people to go about their daily life and conduct financial and personal matters as they do. Being away from the home computer is no longer a problem with mobile technology.
If mobile devices can do so much, then it’s not surprising when online bingo companies decided to make play available on these too. They could capture an audience that is essentially able to play online bingo 24/7.
Unfortunately for online bingo players, sites have generally been quite slow to make the most of mobile technology. Some offer play on all mobile devices (Apple and Android mobile phones, iPads and Android powered tablets), a few offer play on mobile phones but not tablets (and vice versa), and some still don’t offer any mobile play at all.
These not only have mobile versions of their sites available to play on all mobile devices, but they make this fact clear on their websites. Some online bingo sites are guilty of having mobile play capabilities, but not advertising this fact very well, or at all!
Many sites have actual apps that you can download in order to enjoy playing bingo on mobile devices. William Hill offer a free app for download which allows you all the same access to games as you would on a PC or laptop.
Of course the technology is somewhat complicated, and this could explain why some online bingo companies are still struggling with developing mobile versions of their sites. Essentially it makes quite a difference as to whether a site’s mobile version is a downloadable app or a browser app. This is explored in depth on the Phone Bingo page, which you can find under the Mobile Bingo section of the menu.
There are some that are concerned that being able to play online bingo 24/7 through the existence of mobile bingo may encourage and increase the numbers of problem gamblers. Time will tell if easier and more on demand access has any effect on the playing habits of online bingo players.
