The Bankable Features of Streaming and Jackpot Bingo



Unless you’ve somehow been living under a rock with poor wi-fi signal, chances are you’re engaged on some level with entertainment streaming. It’s a billion-dollar industry, where big names like Google and Amazon fight over claiming the biggest piece of the pie possible. What many people might not understand or even take for granted is how much the core tenants of this media tie into other systems like jackpot bingo games. From another industry entirely, the shared features of these forms of media continue to make them a hit, it's just a matter of finding the right leverage.


The Choice Factor
Though we’ve long lived in an age of widespread media, where nobody could ever enjoy all that’s on offer, this choice was always limited by physical realities. In TV and movies, it would never be possible to store or record everything available, and even if you could, eventual media degradation could create a major hurdle. Sure, you might have collected every VHS movie ever, but then you have to do it again for DVD, and then Blu-Ray, so we hope you’ve got a warehouse handy.
 


For the original offline forms of bingo slots, this wasn’t as much of an issue, with physical locations being limited to only a few forms of games. In modern systems, however, it’s common for jackpot bingo websites to offer dozens of different titles. From Wild Elements to Might Griffin, The Big Wheel, and so many more, this type of range would never be possible before the online casino world.

In both passive visual entertainment and active casino play, digitalization served as the key to overcoming seemingly insurmountable problems. In doing so, they enabled the new methods to outshine older systems, to a point where the originals can’t compete in this regard.



The Speed of Light
All of the choice in the world is useless without a way to deliver it to an audience, and this is where our constantly increasing internet speeds come in. Before the advent of video streaming systems, viewers had two main ways they could enjoy new content. The first was through buying or renting, and the second is waiting for the media to come to broadcast television.

Neither of these was ideal, incurring wait times and risks that what you wanted might never appear. Modern fast fiber and wireless streaming eliminate such problems, so not only do you get what you want as soon as you want it, but you also get it in resolutions that older systems cannot compare to.

In jackpot bingo games, playing used to be about hoping you had a nearby physical casino. Today, as long as you are one of the 4.66 billion people who have admittance to the internet, you have access to some form of online casino gaming. Through traditional desktop solutions to mobile phones, getting involved is easier than ever. Combined with the fact that the average internet connection speed today of 46.7 Mbps on mobile could cater to dozens of users simultaneously, and missing out is rarely an option.
 

For many technologies, evolution is lateral. Rather than building outright advantages, it can be about doing something different or catering to an unexplored audience. While streaming and online casino games do have these features, they also come with elements like speed and choice which are undeniable upgrades from their forebearers. While we wouldn't predict these to take over completely from what came before, a continuing shift from the old to the new seems a practical guarantee.
