Despite its apparent simplicity and straightforwardness, the question in the title is not an easy one to answer. Sure, online slots and online bingo both qualify as online gambling games, but that’s pretty much where every similarity between them ends. Online slots feature extremely small house edges and they seem dedicated to players who enjoy solitude and who like to keep their gambling as simple as possible. Online bingo on the other hand features a much higher house edge and it is a social game, which requires people to chat and to interact with the administrators as well as their fellow gamblers. While online slots are usually packaged up with a bunch of other online casino games, online bingo usually comes through specially designated websites known as online bingo halls.
Another common denominator that online bingo online and slots share, is the fact that they are both exclusively luck based games. Indeed, there is absolutely nothing a player can do to influence the odds involved in online slots or in online bingo. There aren’t any skills one can develop either in order to forward his or her case in either of the two games. While the social aspect of bingo lends it an additional dimension (bingo hall chat managers run special games in order to entertain their players), online slots are pretty much stuck with what they can conceivably offer through their rather simplistic user interfaces. Indeed, modern slot machines have branched out and they are now offering quite a handful of side games which do indeed give the game an additional dimension, kind of like the chat games do for online bingo.
The bottom line is that both games are designed to entertain online gamblers in ways that none of the other online casino games can cover. Player winnings on both online bingo and online slots can take up some pretty fabulous sizes, but in both cases the odds of a player actually walking away with one of these generous jackpots are extremely slim.
