Private online bingoAlthough it is widely accepted that one of the best things about online bingo as we all know is the live chat every once in a while you might like a game of bingo which doesn't involve others. Of course, if you're looking for a game similar to bingo in this instance there are many sites which offer Keno as the single player option, but there are sites which now offer instant win and single player options for bingo games in addition to the normal bingo games.

Games such as Seaside Bingo, Instant Wingo, Badabingo games are instant win bingo games. Seaside Bingo is an instant way to play bingo online with a washed up crab, pinching through the numbers on your card to see if you've won.  This game is brilliant fun and the graphics are amusing and unique.

Badabingo on the other hand, offers players 15 numbers on a card and each number is shot off the screen by the unseen machine gun-wielding baddies. You can choose your stake in this game and even win up to 10,000 times your bid if you win a full house. What we like about this particular game is you can win on as little as 3 numbers and its fast and furious making it the perfect solution to a 5-minute window in your day.

There are of course hundreds of scratchie alternatives to play if you just don't have the time for a game of full blown bingo, and based on the original scratch card phenomena that hit the UK some 10 years ago these are often amusing and fun in their own right. Check out sites such as Gala Bingo and Jackpot Joy for brand-led scratchies that will have you itching for the win you deserve.
