Online Bingo Lingo: A Guide

If you’re new to online bingo, one of the first major differences you’ll see between online and real-life bingo is the community. Most online bingo rooms have chat rooms, and because the game is automated, there’s no worry about missing a number if you’re chatting with friends! But if you’ve never used a bingo chat room before, you could stick out like a sore thumb as a newbie! Chat rooms are often full of text speak and bingo slang, and if you’re not familiar with the acronyms, you might struggle to understand what’s being said – a definite no-no if you want to take part in chat room games, as the chat hosts on some bingo sites may offer prizes like bingo bonuses in the chat room. We’ve compiled a list of the most common online bingo chat room acronyms, so you can get participating in those discussions like a pro straight away! You might be familiar with some of them already – chat rooms use a lot of common text speak that you might already use for texting or Facebook messaging – but if you have no clue what ‘1TG’ or ‘GLA’ mean, you might just find this list helpful!
