Installing Bingo Software

downloadThe vast majority of online bingo sites work hard to make installing any necessary software as easy as possible. That said, there may be occasions on which you will need to download and install software manually, especially if your computer has a pop-up-blocker that prevents automatic downloading of files. In these instances the following tips will help you to install your software quickly and easily.

After you click the “download” link on your bingo site of choice, your operating system will ask you where you want to save the file to. We suggest that you save the file to your desktop, as this will make it very easy for you to find when it has been downloaded.

 

  • When the bingo software has been downloaded, minimise all your open windows and you should see the file on your main desktop. Double click this to run the software. If it asks you to confirm where you want the software to be installed to, simply select “OK” to install to the default location. If the installer asks you if you would like an icon adding to your desktop select “YES”.
  • The bingo software will now install itself to your machine. This may take several seconds or several minutes, depending on the speed of your computer and the size of the application being installed.
  • When the installation has finished, you can either launch the software by double clicking any new icon that has been added to your main desktop, or by going to the START menu and finding the application under the ALL PROGRAMS list.
  • It is a good idea to test that the bingo software works properly before deleting the installation file from your system. You don’t have to delete the installation file at all if you don’t want to, but doing so will help your desktop to remain clear and uncluttered. When you’ve tested the bingo software and you know it works, place your cursor over the installation file and click the right mouse button, then select “Delete” from the menu of options that appears. The file will then be sent to the recycle bin.

Should you ever have any difficulties with installing software, check the web site of the bingo room you are using for any additional instructions. If difficulties persist, feel free to contact the customer services team for personal assistance. The bingo room will be happy to help you resolve any problems you are having as quickly and easily as possible.
