Bingo Lingo - All the common bingo chat acronyms.

Playing bingo online for the first time?

You will soon find out that half the fun in online bingo is in the chatroom, where you can type to your fellow players when the game is underway.

Regular players are in the habit of abbreviating common expressions that come up time and time again..
A lot of these expression will be familiar if you are used to other internet chatrooms or texting on a cell phone, although some are exclusive to bingo games.

If you aren't aware of the jargon or 'bingo lingo' then the chatroom can be a pretty confusing place at first!

Below are a list of the common bingo acronyms if you get lost..

New players should first be aware of the CH (Chat Host) or CM (Chat Monitor) who types in a different color to all the other players. It is his /her job to moderate the chatroom , welcome new players, and run bonus games.

New players should remember that only the chathost sometimes types in CAPITALS.
Other players should try not to type in capitals as it is generally considered impolite or 'shouting'

Be aware of the general bingo chatroom etiquette - And help to make the chatroom a friendly fun place to relax with the friends you will make.

NOTE - It is common bingo courtesy for other bingo chatters to congratulate a player on a big win - even if you are mad inside, if they have already won more than their fair share !!

(Many bingo rooms offer a 'fair and square room' where players all have the same chance to win - with a fixed number of cards available to purchase for each game.)
