Mobile Bingo

Just couldn't help myself in writing a bingo caller for my Mobile phone the other week, you see it was my daughter's birthday and she wanted bingo at the party and my wife had decided the low tech approach of pulling numbers out of a bag was the way to go...I wasn't having it "I could write a .NET App for my phone in 10 minutes to do that" I said. Kind of brave since it was my first mobile phone app, I paid £300 for this phone so it just has to do more than just make calls...You know what a bit more than 10 minutes say 30 and I had it working...It just goes to show easy things have become these days....Im thinking of porting wack a mole now...although I'm not sure my touch sensitive screen will last...


 

You can download the app from here

There are rumours that bingo is being banned in the US, is that true?
In the UK, bingo has suffered in recent months due to the ban on smoking in public places, causing smoking customers to either go outside for a cig and face the harsh cold (not a good move for the aged) or stay at home and not play, thus reducing the Bingo Gossip. But banning bingo completely is ridiculous! It is a very mind form of gambling at the most! If you’re going to ban bingo then the lottery has to go too surely? Isn’t that gambling?
Bingo is a number game, based on pure luck, so really it’s not even similar to other gambling games such as poker and sports betting. It’s just like buying a lottery ticket just you have to get more numbers! So then why is it such a problem? Its just takes away the older generations entertainment while the younger generations indulge in perfectly “legal” things like DRUGS! Can they not see which the bigger problem is?
