The player doesn’t manually cover the numbers on the cards. In fact, with most of the software, the player doesn’t even have to be online. The individual doesn’t achieve the same degree of physical coordination and mental alertness online as he does at a land-based free online bingo game establishment, but the individual still has to be able to operate a computer. This also requires some degree of alertness and coordination.
The fact that UK bingo can help maintain mental alertness seems far-fetched when you first hear it, but it isn’t when you think of it. The bingo player has to listen to the called numbers and quickly find them on his cards. He has to be able to quickly identify the number and quickly place a chip on it without sliding around the other chips and without misplacing chips. This requires physical coordination and hand-eye coordination. Bingo contributes to the alertness of people. This is good for the elderly. They are keeping themselves mentally alert and contributing to their own physical dexterity when they play bingo at a land-based bingo hall. What about when they play online? Then the auto-call and auto-dauber do most of the work.
Playing in a land-based bingo hall can also be considered to be good socially for people. Bingo is a very friendly and non-competitive game. Players socialize while they play which is one of the reasons why they play at bingo halls. In many ways bingo can be considered to be healthy for people, especially the elderly.
