Women, Technology and Online Bingo

It’s no secret that both women and men love to play bingo. Whether that is at their local bingo hall or at their favorite website, it’s a habit that’s been going on for decades and is set to continue for many more to come. But as technology has evolved, more and more women have decided to shift their preferred pastime to their mobiles, laptops and desktops. The key reason behind this is that it offers them the convenience of talking to their friends and playing bingo without having to leave their couch at home. As Kevin Johnson, CEO of Starbucks, said recently at NewCo Shift Forum, forces in technology have amplified the ‘need state of convenience’. Basically, while you might be missing the sense of community, consumers still want to be able to do things without leaving their house.
