There are a number of reasons why people start playing bingo, for instance for cash, for company, for adrenaline rushes, or simply to have a good time. Highs and lows, thrill and chills, you name it – internet bingo provides all these and many more. Just as in any other game where risks are high, this increased excitement has its own fair portion of positive and negative affect on the enthusiasts.

Bingo- The Anxiety Magnet

The excitement associated with a game of bingo can push a player to the opposite end of the spectrum. Getting too absorbed in the game, one’s excitement level could fluctuate; this might have a detrimental outcome on those who have high blood pressure or heart issues. Some studies indicate, people who play bingo are subject to get easily agitated and accordingly have high-anxiety. It has been discerned that work related anxiety is much lower than the anxiety generated while playing bingo. There have been many cases of people having lost their jobs as a result of bingo-related stress impacting their proficiency at work.

Despite the previously stated risks, bingo can still be an enjoyable anxiety-buster if players accept that it’s only a game, be concerned with their well-being and control their actions.
