Bingo is a simple game to play – it’s one of the many reasons it has maintained its popularity throughout the years. But that doesn’t mean we don’t see changes as new technology comes into play. We are always looking for ways to innovate and adapt wherever possible.

One such innovation is the introduction of our Bingo Bee – a dedicated tablet to play digitally whilst present at our clubs, as an alternative to the traditional dabber. This isn’t about replacing the dabber – many still prefer the old fashioned way – rather it’s about providing people with more options for how they enjoy their bingo.

Here’s a brief rundown of the details, pros and cons of each. Ultimately, whichever method you choose, you are sure to have a great time at the bingo with BJ’s.

Bingo Bee tablets mark the numbers automatically, saving time and effort – and ensuring that you never miss a number. This also means that you can take advantage of buying more bingo tickets per game, which significantly increases your chances of winning. You can still play multiple paper tickets with a dabber, of course, but only do this if you are sure of your ability to mark down the numbers in a time-effective manner.

That being said, depending on your preference, the traditional way might still be for you. Some might find the use of technology, no matter how easy, somewhat daunting. If you prefer to use a dabber and paper tickets for a more tactile, hands-on experience – this is also an option.

Another benefit of a Bingo Bee is your winnings. If you are lucky enough to win big at one of our bingo clubs, then your prize money will be credited to your account, which you can then withdraw as cash or use to buy food, drink and play a range of exciting slot games!

Once again, however, this simply isn’t an issue for some. Many people prefer to do things manually, and the thrill of winning alone is all they need – along with a dabber in hand, of course.

Along with the above considerations, it’s also a good idea to consider which option you find the most fun. Regardless of anything else, you come to bingo to have a good time. Make the choice that gives you the most joy. Some people prefer a Bingo Bee as they are there to win, whilst others find them incredibly freeing and easier to use. However, other players really enjoy the manual physicality of holding the dabber and marking their numbers on tickets. To some, this is a fundamental part of playing bingo.

And that’s the most important takeaway from any digital v dabber comparison – it’s all about choice. Different people like different ways to play and bingo pride’s itself as a game open to all. So, choose your preferred method and get down to one of our bingo halls as soon as you can – we’d love to have you.
