Bingo Chat Rooms

We have got to the point where bingo chat rooms are now practically compulsory for online bingo sites. The use of them are basically part and parcel of playing bingo. Chat rooms take the world of online bingo and turn it into the social game it always used to be when we played in bingo halls with friends and family.

Of course many bingo players have no desire to interact with the  other players on the site. And that’s fine! There’s never any obligation to join these bingo chat rooms! However, if you have never participated before then it may well be worth ‘ dipping your toe in’. You may well be surprised at how much your whole bingo playing experience is enhanced.

But what are these bingo chat rooms about? How do they work? And what’s the point?

Well they are simply a way to help you enjoy your bingo game playing even more. You can chat, make friends and even create teams in many instances. Plus you can join in the ‘extra’ games available (again – only if you decide to). They are easy to join and just as easy to leave if you so wish….

 

Chat Moderators

The person who ‘leads’ these chat rooms go by varying different names. Most common are Chat Moderators, Chat Monitors, Chat Masters or Chat Hosts. Therefore they are most often referred to as the CM or CH.

So what is the role of the CM in the bingo chat rooms?

  • They ensure that the Chat Room rules are followed.
  • A Bingo Chat Host communicates in the Chat Box.
  • A CH will make an announcement whenever there’s a special offer.
  • They run chat room games.
  • The CH moderates the Chat Rooms, making sure people behave.
  • The Chat Host is always there to answer all your questions and provide support.

 

Abbreviations for Bingo Chat Rooms – bingo lingo!

It can certainly seem daunting when you first take a look at the chat rooms. This is mainly because of the many abbreviations used. You will often hear this described as ‘bingo lingo’ – and just to make everything more complicated, bingo lingo is also the term used for the bingo calls in traditional bingo halls.

Below is a list of the most often used chat / bingo lingo. While it is reasonably comprehensive there will always be new terms being coined. And remember that each of the online bingo sites may well have their own variations.

Bingo Chat Games.

Apart from the social side of chat rooms, the games and bonuses offered are probably the most important aspect. These games will be hosted by the CH / CM as outlined above. They may be offered and promoted in regular slots or maybe just on an ad-hoc basis whenever the CM decides. And there is nothing wrong with asking the CM when the next chat games are coming up…..

Trying to provide a complete list of these games would be pointless as they change on a continual basis. Even different sites will have different names for different games. But they will all offer great promotions and you have nothing to lose by participating. And even if you fail to win anything – they’re great fun!

 

Etiquette in Bingo Chat Rooms.

Each bingo site will obviously have their own rules regarding use of their bingo chat rooms. However, the following are general rules which tend to apply wherever you happen to be playing …..

  • Be polite and courteous at all times.
  • Do not bully, harass or use any form of discrimination.
  • Avoid any form of bad language.
  • Avoid using CAPITAL LETTERS which is considered to be shouting…..
  • Use only the English language (or the common language if you are playing on a non-English bingo site).
  • Do not spam or advertise products, services or other sites.
  • Be sensible when choosing your chat names – don’t pick something vulgar or offensive.
  • Try not to give out personal details (for your own safety / security).
  • Do not use the chat rooms to voice complaints or vent your anger or annoyance.

We feel that all the above points make sense. In short – the bingo chat rooms are somewhere for everyone to enjoy themselves!
