Having had some time off from Bingo I thought I'd give some other online games a go. Paddy Power seemed like as good a place to start as any.
What I liked about playing fun games online with Paddy Power was that I could pick and choose what I played. There was also a good range of games on offer to choose from. I thought I'd just pop in and have a quick look before heading out to meet some friends for a coffee, but I ended up staying in. I know, tragick isn't it. But it was great fun.
The way the website is set up is so you can play your favourite TV Games and win cash. Being something of a fan of X Factor, Deal or No Deal and Take me Out this was right up my street. Each of the games were easy to pcik up and a lot of fun to play.
When ever I visit these sites I always want to check out their responsible gambling advice and I wasn't dissapointed here. Their advice page had some sensible tips and suggestions to make sure the gaming stayed fun and didn't cost too much. "If you are unsure whether or not you may have developed a gambling problem, you can use the following simple checklist for self-assessment." It then listed Preoccupation, Tolerance, Ability to stop and Irritability as some of the signs to watch out for. All good advice.
I also had a hunt around to see what Paddy Power's history was. As you might guess from the name, Paddy Power is Ireland's biggest bookmaker. As well as the website they have a chain of outlets throughout Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain. It's been around since 1988 so isn't a fly by night site that may dissapear.
I'll be interested to see how long I keep going back, but with the number of different games on offer there's still I've yet to try. My favourites so far have been the X Factor Scratchcard and Wheel of Fortune game.
I'll keep you posted.
With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.
But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
