Bingo Chat Room Lingo


One of the best things about the game of bingo is its social aspect. Nearly every online bingo site has an array of bingo chat rooms that facilitate communication and social interaction between players.

According to a recent survey, at least 70% of all online players participate in bingo chat while playing the game. This chat function adds an entirely new dimension to the game. In fact, there are many players who may enjoy the chats even more than the bingo itself!

Of course, to effectively engage others, you might want to brush up on standard bingo chat lingo. That’s right, just as Instant Messenger programs have standardized acronyms like “LOL” and “OMG”, online bingo has also developed a chat language of its own.
