Important Things to Consider When Setting Up Virtual Bingo Games for Seniors
We bet you want your virtual bingo game for seniors to be a fun-filled, entertaining, and memorable event. For most seniors, mobile devices and mobile gaming offer players a great way to enjoy various bingo games from the comfort of their living spaces.
Yes, some senior players are dreaming of claiming different prizes. In contrast, other seniors are looking forward to enjoying their time while immersing themselves in the beautiful game of bingo. Now that you know some of the expectations senior citizens have when playing virtual bingo games, here are the top tips to help you host amazing games for seniors.
Before hosting a virtual bingo game for seniors, there are a few things that you need to take care of if you want the players to experience hassle-free and memorable gaming.
Having a quality video feed will help you share the winning numbers with the players. You can also go old-school if you want, and this will involve using a whiteboard to note all the winning bingo numbers.
After settling on your preferred video output, remember to showcase at least the last five bingo numbers that the host calls. Listing the last five bingo numbers on your screen will help seniors who didn’t hear the host calling out the number keep track of the progress of a particular bingo match.
While hybrid bingo games allow players to follow game proceedings from a physical location or their mobile devices and computer, players can only access virtual bingo games via online sites. As a result, players have to visit i-gaming platforms to enjoy bingo games.
You should select an easy-to-use platform to host your virtual bingo game. Doing a little research before opting for a platform will help know if the platform is senior-friendly. Some features available in senior-friendly sites include fluid navigation, customizable font sizes, and state-of-the-art encryption technology.
Players and game hosts are always in constant communication during bingo gameplay. Similarly, the seniors participating in your virtual bingo game will have to communicate with the game host.
Investing in a quality audio system will ensure that your host doesn’t have to repeat themselves more than twice when making bingo calls. For instance, quality microphones will capture what the host says, preventing players from hearing inaccurate calls.
If you expect many players to turn out to your hybrid (virtual and physical) bingo game, hiring a professional sound technician is the way to go. An experienced sound technician will handle the tuning of audio peripherals to ensure that all senior players enjoy the virtual bingo experience.
Also, our senses deteriorate as we age. As a result, expect that some of the senior citizens playing the virtual (hybrid) bingo games you will be hosting will experience hearing loss. With this in mind, invest in quality speakers that don’t produce distorted sounds after continued use or when the volume is loud.
We bet you are ready to host your first or next virtual bingo tournament now that you know the features present in top virtual bingo sites. And don’t forget to check your jurisdiction’s gaming laws to determine if hosting virtual bingo games is legal.
