I always make it my duty to try and understand a point of view that makes absolutely no sense to me. In my search for understanding I am not seeking to agree with that particular point of view simply to understand why it is held. Such a case is that of the state governments that seek to ban electronic bingo as slot machines even though they allow bingo legally in their state. I know it sounds confusing, but these people there is a difference between what is called paper bingo and electronic bingo. In my opinion paper or not, bingo is very similar to that of a slot machine. Numbers are called at random as people try to line up a winning pattern. The only difference with electronic bingo is that the pace of the game is faster and the computer fills in the squares for you.
The only reasons I can think that people would have legitimate reason for thinking these games are different is because of the pace of the game is faster. Pacing has a lot to do with a game effecting peoples impulsive side. But even that I have a hard time digesting as the pace of bingo can be pretty rapid. Another reason that people might oppose electronic bingo and still accept paper bingo is the human error issue. There is no room for human error on and electronic bingo game. However, paper bingo does not just require chance it requires paying attention. Missing a number could cost you a win.
