The Occupy Community

The Occupy protests have demonstrated what the best online bingo players already know – that community trumps all else.

‘A corporation is an ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility.’


As the temperature drops into the single digits, I’ve been following the Occupy protests with increasing interest (and no small amount of respect for what must be a reptilian ability to withstand the cold).


I’m fully aware that as an online bingo enthusiast I’m wandering into slightly dangerous territory because I’m cognisant of the fact that bingo sites are run for profit. Nevertheless I’ve been intrigued by their protest and the exception they’ve taken against corporate corruption and greed, but mostly what’s captured my interest has been the community that has developed from the campsites across the world, powered by the Internet.


Community is what binds and lasts long after the placards have been bent by the wind and trampled into the ground. A common ideal and a shared sense of purpose is what lives on long after the protesters have been sent home.


The online bingo community has known this for a long time; arguably the strongest community in the gaming business, the best online bingo sites have an extremely loyal following of players who love to chat to each other, often taking their friendships offline and finding they’ve made great friends all around the country.


With global turmoil reaching fever pitch, friendships that cross boundaries real and imaginary are more important than ever. If you’d like to make some new friends around the country, playing a few free bingo games is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the community and meet people with similar interests.
