The Lingo of Bingo

12 January 2016

When you are playing online bingo you will be able to chat to other members, your friends and the bingo master. In a short space of time a special language has developed for use during bingo chat, I like to refer to this as “ bingo lingo”. This “lingo” will save time when typing messages, which is vital for quick play.

Making friends in chat is relatively easy - so make the most of it and get to know as many people as you can. These new friends will be able to give you valuable info such as when the last jackpots were won and what the current promotions are.

Here is a comprehensive list of “bingo lingo”, it will take a while to read through but I am sure you will get the hang of it:

  • AFAIK = as far as I know
