Online bingo offers lots of great advantages over traditional bingo. It’s quick, easy and convenient, and you don’t even have to leave your house to play!

However, due to the fact that in online bingo you can’t see the numbers being drawn, some players worry that games could be fixed. 

To put your mind at ease, we’ll explain how online bingo works and why it will never be rigged if you’re playing on a fair and responsible website.

Can Online Bingo Be Fixed?

Since in online bingo players can’t see the numbers being drawn, it can be a little more difficult to understand how the game works. This leads some players to question whether it could be fixed.

To clear this up, you’ll need to understand what’s going on behind the scenes. Like most online casino games, the outcomes of online bingo games are achieved using Random Number Generator (RNG) software. In other words, the outcomes are controlled by computers and are almost impossible to predict. 

All UK casino websites with a licence from the Gambling Commission have their RNGs independently tested by regulatory bodies to make sure they’re fair and truly random, giving players at these sites the confidence that the games aren’t rigged.

While it’s possible that there may be sites out there that are rigging their games, fair and responsible sites will never do this. For this reason, it’s essential that you know how to find and recognise responsible online casinos with your best interests at heart.

Ways to Know If an Online Bingo Site Is Fair

There are a few easy ways to work out whether an online bingo site is fair and safe. The first is checking whether it has a licence from the UK Gambling Commission. You should be able to find their licence certificate number on their website. If it does have a licence, this means it has been approved by the Gambling Commission as a fair and safe casino that has met all regulatory requirements.

Another good way to check the credibility of an online bingo site is to do a quick Google search to see how people rate it. Read reviews or check out forums to find out what players think about the site before you deposit any money.

The best websites will already have a great reputation within the online bingo community for being safe, fair – and fun, of course!

Just Because It’s Fair, It Doesn’t Mean You’re Guaranteed to Win

It’s important to remember that even though online bingo websites like Slingo are completely fair, this doesn’t mean you are guaranteed a win. Although some people may believe otherwise, the truth is that online bingo (and all online casino games) is a game of chance.

All wins or losses are purely down to luck, and just because you may not be winning this doesn’t mean that the game isn’t fair, or that it is rigged.
