Bingo is one of the easiest games to play and the online version is no different. Playing bingo online, players can make use of optional features which make playing the game easier, such as auto-daub.

The game is won by the first person to call out “bingo!” or “house!” on crossing off all numbers.

Bingo and Number Calling

In both the variations, numbers are called quickly by the host or caller. Thus, a player must carefully listen to the numbers as they are drawn and announced, while marking them quickly and correctly on their cards.

The caller continues to announce numbers until one or more players complete the winning pattern and yell “BINGO!” The game is then brought to a halt and the numbers are verified to confirm the win.

Once the winning numbers are verified, the winner is announced and the prize is awarded. In an event of more than one winner, the jackpot value is split among all the winners equally.

At many bingo sites, popular patterns including the classic X, corners and blackout bingo are offered. Furthermore, some bingo websites offer exclusive progressive Bingo jackpots running into millions of dollars.

Online Bingo Shortcuts – USA & UK English Bingo Chat-Room Abbreviations

Online Bingo Shortcuts are used in chat for faster communication between the games.

The notion of community was intrinsic to the traditional Bingo Hall, where people would travel from far flung places to meet and socialize with others. Without doubt, community is still very much at the heart of online bingo, thanks to the ‘Chat-rooms’, which have become integral to the online bingo community.

It was recently reported in an online survey that approx 70% of all online bingo players use and take part in the chat rooms, which speaks volumes.
All good bingo sites utilise the chat room function. These rooms are regulated by Chat Masters whose watch over the conversations in the room, help roomies with their questions, play chat games and give away prizes.

Because Email, SMS and Chatting in bingo rooms requires us to put our WPM typing skills to the test, a new type of communication has developed in order for us to keep up and keep the conversation flowing, without us wasting time looking for the ‘H’ key…or, of course, getting in the way of our Bingo game!

AFACT (as Far as I Can Tell), these chat abbreviations genuinely help bingo players to take part in the conversation without having to type full words and sentences but also helps generate a sense of fun and community. You’ll pick them up in no time! CFN (ciao for now).

Bingo Calls – bingo jargon that populate the game

Bingo is such a curious game. While it is certainly keeping up with the times, thanks to the popularity of online bingo, it maintains its old school charms by retaining the terms and jargon used ever since this popular card game became very well-known.

Besides the bingo calls, or the nicknames used for the bingo numbers being called, there are still a number of bingo jargon that populate the game. As with knowing the bingo call nicknames, they are not completely necessary in order to play the game.

However, knowing the bingo terminologies does make the game easier. Every game has its own set of terminologies and jargon – Poker and Gin Rummy, as well as other popular casino games, have them as well.

If you plan to be a regular bingo or online bingo player, you need to know and understand these terms since you will be encountering them often when you play.

Among the more common terms are the ones used to pertain to the bingo patterns. Bingo pattern terms are only applicable in the US bingo games or the 75-ball bingo games, since there are no such patterns in non-US bingo games of the 90-ball bingo game.

For instance, four corners and blackout are two of the popular bingo terms here. When the game requires you to form a four corners pattern, you need to form a pattern where the top and bottom B column and the top and bottom O column-the four corners of the bingo card-are marked. In blackout, you need to mark every numbers on your card.

Another term that you will not use in non-US bingo games is the free space. This is the space in the middle of the bingo card.

In the 75-ball bingo card game, the middle slot has no number because it is given as a free slot. This means it is already considered as a marked slot.

When you a play a five in a row bingo game, this means you only need four numbers if you are aiming to mark all your N column slots.

Some terms, on the other hand, are used during the game itself. For instance, even in online bingo, people use the term eyes down when referring to the start of the game.

Looking at it closely, this is used because when playing bingo, the players have to look down at their cards, which are often placed on the table.

Meanwhile, terms are also used to refer to the type of prize package winners get. For instance, a cash-in-prize is a payout system where the prize is dictated according to the number of players who joined the game.

Progressive bingo games, on the other hand, have jackpot prizes that continue to increase until someone wins.

While this may seem preferable, this means that not every game will have a winner. For instance, a progressive bingo game may end not if there is a winner but according to a pre-set number of balls to be drawn.

Are you going to play bingo?

You’ll never be able to appreciate the game more if you’re not aware of them.Admission. You have to make yourself eligible to play the game.

There are certain requirements that have to be met, one of which is you should be at least 18 years old. This also means that there is a fee that has to be paid. For online bingo games, this is referred to as deposit.

Caller. A caller is a person who has to shout the numbers that are being drawn. These numbers will then correspond to the digits that are being printed in the card.

Callers have a way of calling numbers, and this is called name calling. They have nicknames attached to the digits.

Bingo Card. This refers to the card used to play the 75-bingo game. The other game, 90 ball, requires the use of six strips of tickets. In the card, you can find five rows and five columns. Each of the columns is labeled by every letter of the word “bingo.”

The squares will be numbered from 1 to 75, but it depends on the column. For instance, column B will normally contain numbers that are from 1 to 15; I, 16 to 30; N, 31 to 45; G, 46 to 60; and O, 61 to 75. Your bingo card will be the one that is marked every time you have the number that is being called.

Coverall. This is a pattern where the player has to black out or mark all numbers that are found in the card.

Bonanza Bingo. This is a coverall progressive bingo game. You can consider this as intermission, and is usually played as the thirteenth game in any bingo event.

The prize will be dependent on the sales of the bonanza cards, which will cost around a dollar. This also makes it an optional game. You can still play all of the bingo sessions and choose not to win in bonanza bingo.

Cash-in Prize. This refers to the real cash prize that is being won by a player. This can be deposited directly into his online account or given to him or her, such as in the case of playing in bingo halls.

Chat Room. This is a very beautiful feature of online bingo websites. With it, you can talk with your friends and even opponents.

You can also win prizes if you participate in the chat games. The screen can appear in different areas of the screen. There are times, though, when they are not being activated.

Session. This refers to a series of regular bingo games that are being played in certain times of the day. The schedule can be fixed or not.

That’s why you have to visit the online bingo website as often as you can to get the exact schedule of the games. A session can last as long as three hours.
