A-Z Online Bingo Glossary

Bingo Glossary: 2021 Update

In our newly updated A-Z Bingo Glossary, we add a modern twist to our original article that came out in 2014. Apart from the nice addition of images, we also have examples of bingo sites which perfectly embody some of these bingo terms. This will help you to get the most practical help out of our glossary!

Introduction

The world of online bingo contains many words and lingo unique to it, and sometimes this can be daunting to new or potential players!
We’ve compiled a list of words and explanations that we think will be really helpful when navigating the ups and downs of online bingo.

A – Admission

Admission is the number of tickets you need to purchase in order to take part in a bingo game.

B – Bingo Card

A bingo card is what you play with. If you’re playing 75 Ball Bingo, it will typically have 24 numbers on it with a blank space in the middle. The numbers are randomly placed on the cards and each card will be different. If you’re playing 90 Ball Bingo, your card will have 6 boxes with 15 numbers dispersed throughout each.

Most good bingo sites will have both 75 Ball & 90 Ball bingo games. Here are just some that do.

The new site from Lindar MrQ features great chat alongside its bingo rooms. It even works great on mobile!

Most bingo games have a chat room running alongside them in the bingo room. They are a good way of chatting to other players, encouraging one another and building a sense of community.

D – Dauber

Unlike daubers in a traditional bingo hall, the dauber in online bingo is automatic, so you don’t have to mark off the numbers on your card yourself.

E – Early Bird Game

An early bird game is one played before the regular bingo game scheduled. Sometimes it’s merely the first game of the session.

F – Full House

A Full House is when you have marked off all the numbers on your card.

G – Game Room
