A Guide To Bingo Chat Rooms
A Guide To Bingo Chat Rooms
Going to the bingo hall to play a few rounds of bingo is a popular pastime for many. It’s a great social activity and many bingo players enjoy the social aspect of bingo as much as they enjoy the game itself. If you’re new to the world of online bingo, you’ll be pleased to know that online bingo does have some social aspects to it. No, it isn’t the same as traditional bingo in that there’s no face-to-face interaction with other players, but you can chat to other players and get to know them as you play. This is all thanks to bingo chat rooms.
What are bingo chat rooms?
Most bingo apps offer chat rooms to make the whole bingo experience more sociable, friendly and enjoyable. They’re essentially forums where you can ‘chat’ to other players by text and are overseen by moderators. The role of the moderators is to welcome newbies, answer any questions players might have about the app and games, and ensure that nothing offensive or inappropriate is being discussed. Players who repeatedly disobey the rules will get a warning from a moderator and if they continue misbehaving, they’ll eventually get banned for life. When in chat rooms, you don’t have to talk about bingo all the time – you can talk about pretty much anything, so long as you don’t break the chat room rules. You’ll be able to have a look at the rules to see what sorts of things are not allowed. Generally speaking, chat rooms are relaxed and informal places that offer a good way to pass the time in between bingo games. You’ll probably notice a lot of players using abbreviations – this is known as ‘bingo lingo’ and it’s essentially the bingo chat room equivalent of text speak. Some examples of this include BLTN, ‘better luck next time’, GL, ‘good luck’, and AFK, ‘away from keyboard’. You should find bingo lingo pretty easy to pick up.
Chat room games
Many chat rooms have their own games to draw more players to the chat room and encourage them to get involved. There are loads of different chat games you’ll find and they’re usually pretty straightforward and very competitive – number games, guessing games and trivia games are examples of common chat room games. The prizes you can win aren’t that big, but the games are held quite regularly, so if you play them often enough, you should have a decent enough chance of winning. Entering the games is completely free and they’re a good side activity to take part in while you’re waiting for your next bingo to start. You don’t have to play them, but they can be good fun and you could win a nice little prize or two.
Chat room etiquette
Just as with other online forums, with bingo chat rooms there’s a level of etiquette that’s expected from all players. In other words, you should be courteous to your other players and treat them how you would want them to treat you. One thing you should definitely not to is verbally abuse anyone for whatever reason – even if you mean it as a joke, it will still be frowned upon. You should also avoid mocking people for not winning bingo games, as well as being prejudiced in any sort of way. As mentioned previously, chat moderators do have the power to ban people from the chat rooms – and from the app – for life. You should always pay attention to what the chat moderators have to say and if they tell you to stop doing something, stop doing it. As long as you use your common sense and have a positive, friendly attitude, you should find the chat rooms a nice place to socialise with your fellow players.
