Bingo chat terms are frequently used in online rooms to ensure that players can have a quick and easy conversation with other site users while games are held. Playing with a wide, varied community of bingo lovers is part of what makes the game special for many club members, and so the chat function serves a valuable purpose. As online bingo has become more popular, operators have endeavoured to try and keep the social feeling of bingo halls alive by putting chat rooms at the heart of their product.
Bingo rooms provide players with the opportunity to interact with each other to get more fun out of their online experience. Most sites will have a room for newbies where players who have just signed up can get used to the game and perhaps play some free bingo. The names of other rooms will give a clue as to what you can expect. It may be that they are simply called the 75-ball room or 90-ball room to tell players which type of bingo can be found, or they have some other name relating to a theme. For example, the Country room at Gala Bingo features a backdrop of green meadows and flowers, while the Coconut Island room has palm trees and blue seas.
Rooms will open at different times, and promotional games will sometimes only take place in certain rooms. Wherever you play online, rooms will be overseen by a chat moderator who will try to get everyone involved and make sure discussions stay within civilised boundaries. General bingo chat rules include:
Chat moderators may prevent you from taking any further part if you continually break rules, but so long as players are friendly they will hopefully enjoy their visit. Players can express themselves as they wish but most sites also have a page on bingo lingo, which carries a list of accepted chat acronyms. It is a good idea to have a read through so that you know what other players are going on about and find it easier to get involved yourself.
Everyday acronyms such as OMG and LOL are welcomed on bingo sites, as well as smileys and icons, but you may also find some abbreviations you haven’t come across before. The abbreviations used at each site will vary, but some of the most common bingo lingo and chat terms include:
