The Winning Draw of Chat Rooms

An Overview of Chat Rooms

One of the most common things that people who play online bingo say about their experience is that the social side is highly important. A sense of community is what keeps them coming back again and again, not just from the promise of a monetary based thrill.

Nearly all online bingo rooms have a chat window, although not all are hosted by a chat moderator. Getting to know fellow “roomies” is a big bonus for many; giving an opportunity to discuss not only the game, but also their outside lives.

Theoretically any topic of conversation is allowed, as long as no content is inflammatory or disrespectful. If you stick to this spirit of goodwill then you will enjoy a welcoming and supportive environment as a bonus to your playing experience.

The chat moderators or hosts (CMs/CHs) are also not just there to maintain order within the chat room, but also to help answer any questions players may have, as well as announcing winners.

Some chat rooms also allow you to play games within them. These might include trivia quizzes, where roomies have to answer either one or a series of questions correctly in the quickest time as possible. As a reward, loyalty points will usually be given out by the CM.

Sing-along games are also popular, with roomies needing to guess the title of a song from the first line given out by the CM. Bonus credits or loyalty points are the typical offering as a prize.

Who Uses Chat Rooms?

With all this in mind, it is not surprising then that so many online bingo players see the quality of a site’s chat room as being of key importance when making their decision about what sites to gamble on.

It is also worth bearing in mind that the majority of online bingo players are female, with Costa Bingo stating that they make up 77% of their players.  Women are on the whole more sociable than men, so this would explain the popularity of chat rooms from another angle.

There is a wide and varied array of chat room themes, ranging from geographical location to hobbies and interests.

Time to Call “BINGO!”

Many will say that they’ve built lasting friendships as a result of the people they chat with, and in fact find kindred spirits that they might not otherwise get to enjoy the company of in their outside lives.

So successful is the online bingo chat room that some have even found love within its imaginary walls. Even though only around 20% of users are male, there is clearly something in the draw of the chat room. It is believed that there are over 5000 couples a year who meet in bingo chat.

In many ways, using bingo chat (not necessarily deliberately) to meet people is much like internet dating. And perhaps it is even better for finding others who are compatible, because a shared love of online gambling already brought everyone to the same place.
