    1-90 Online Bingo Caller

    WDW Bingo’s new online 1-90 bingo caller is state of the art. With its modern, aesthetic design and hilarious bingo phrases called by real humans, you won’t find a tool as natural and as smooth.

    Plus, we’ve teamed up with our sister site, BNBS, which has a bingo card generator tool. That means you can play a full game of bingo with your friends and family with our caller and their cards!

    No other online bingo caller machine is built to the same high standard as ours. With its beautiful layout and simple functionality, you won’t miss a call. Don’t get fooled by other websites with their ugly designs and automated robot voice calls.

    We have a Southern Belle making not safe for work calls, or a perfectly polite Welshman keeping it PC (number 49!) for all the family.

    Our bingo caller generator is incredibly easy to use but we’ve popped a short guide below so you can get the best out of it.

    How to use our Bingo Number Caller

    Our 1-90 ball bingo caller is the easiest to use online. Here, we give you some pointers to have the best possible experience.

    Layout

    There are 90 numbers, arranged in 5 rows of 18, with B-I-N-G-O heading each row. When a number is called it appears in the large showcase area at the bottom. This is accompanied by a call from one of our distinguished and hilarious bingo callers.

    Once the player clicks Next, the old number will move to the receptacle to the left for historical calls, and a new number will appear in the middle.

    Once a number has been called during a game, it will turn white in the main body of the caller. This signifies that the number won’t be called again until a new game beings.

    Players simply keep clicking next until the game is finished. To start a new game, just click Reset. You may get another prompt from your internet browser to confirm you want to refresh.

    For automated bingo calls, click Auto and the game will continue without you having to continually ask for new numbers. You can adjust the time between these calls, but more about that in the Settings section below.

    Settings

    The real magic happens in the settings section, where players can customise their game and have some fun!

    First, you can adjust the Autoplay speed with 1 being the fastest and 10 being the slowest. They do say a quick game is a good game, but equally feel free to take your time. A slow game is a more relaxed game!

    The Voice section allows you to choose your bingo caller. We hired real actors to read out our fabulous bingo calls for a proper organic bingo experience. On most competitor tools, you’re likely to have an automated robot voice or worse, no call at all! This is certainly the best online bingo caller with voice out there!

    In all, there are 12 variations of bingo callers. We have four different sets of voices who can do three sets of calls each. The four voice options are Female, Male, Southern Drawl and Welsh; and they’re all fantastic.

    The three sets of bingo calls are regular bingo calls, funny bingo calls and just the numbers (with a little flair). The regular bingo calls are pretty traditional and many will be instantly recognisable to seasoned bingo players. The funny bingo calls were dreamed up or researched by our resident humourist Dale; let’s face it, most of these are NSFW (not safe for work!)

    At the bottom of this guide, we’ll list the bingo calls for your perusal if you don’t want to be surprised. We also explore the history and context and some of our favourite funny and naughty calls.

    Chime

    We also have plenty of chime selections which signify a number is about to be called. With 8 chimes and 2 pops, you’re sure to find the right “Ding” for you. Or if there’s no ding required, simply uncheck the audible chime box.

    Finally, in the settings section, there’s a checkbox for Manual Calling Mode. By checking that, you can silence the bingo call voices. So if a quiet game is a good game for you, then check away, although we don’t recommend it!

    See More

    There’s not much more to see but by clicking the See More button at the bottom left of the caller (as you look at it), this simply expands the historical ball calls section. This will give you a longer look at what balls have been called already.

    3 Full Sets of Bingo Calls

    Apart from a classic Numbers-only calling setting, we have two further amazing options. These are traditional calls said with plenty of feeling, or funny calls which are a little saucier. We’ve listed all the traditional calls below, as well as funny calls that we’ve swapped in.

    Then, Dale will dive a little bit deeper with an exploration of some of our favourites from these funny bingo calls. We’ll look at the history and the cultural context of the most explosive and rib-tickling rhymes, most of which you can hear in action when you play with our very own bingo caller!

    Funny Bingo Calls – An Exploration

    By Dale Shelabarger

    The bingo call is an essential element of the bricks-and-mortar game, that has its origins in the golden age of the 1950s. A time when words were, you know, just words. Indeed, many traditional bingo calls are now staples of British bingo subculture, among them Kelly’s Eye and Man Alive.

    But there are fruitier phrases that have been retired by a lot of land-based clubs to avoid causing offence (the great terror of our times). While most replacements tend to be fairly innocuous, a few establishments have attempted to ‘get down with the kids’ by introducing some appalling updates.

    We’ll now take a look at some of these atrocities, together with intentionally funny bingo calls from times past that have so far escaped censorship. We’ve also thrown in a few of the racier phrases purely for the sake of mischief. Here’s our top twenty in no particular order. Fear not! You’ll be fine.

    Number 30 – Dirty Gertie

    Dirty Gertie is named after a 1914 bronze statue, La Délivrance that commemorates the First Battle of the Marne in World War I. Located in Finchley, it depicts a naked female standing on tip-toes, her face looking skyward with both arms aloft. Due to corrosion and probably because the figure is nude, residents began referring to her as ‘Dirty Gertie’ in the 1920s. A full-scale restoration eventually put paid to this unfortunate moniker among locals. But thanks to a World War II song, ‘Dirty Gertie from Bizerte’, the phrase lives on as a rude bingo call. Incidentally, the statue still stands and is yet to be vandalised.

    Number 71 – J. Lo’s Bum

    Joe Pesci once asked, Funny how? Well, we’re not sure in respect of this one. As far as rude bingo calls go there’s plenty worse. But we thought we’d throw it in to make up the numbers as it were. And in keeping with a lot of modern bingo calls, allusion is scattered to the four winds in favour of literalism as Jennifer Lopez’ rump becomes the focal point for reasons unknown. She’s certainly dated a few arses in her time, anyway.

    Number 69 – ‘Your Place or Mine’

    ‘Either way up’ and ‘any way up’ were originally used for the 69 call. Both make innocent reference to the way in which number six becomes number nine turned upside down and vice versa. Predictably, the number arouses considerable merriment among younger patrons, especially when ‘your place or mine’ is thrown in. And it rhymes! Something that can’t be said of Mecca’s tragic interpretation: “Number 69 – Netflix and Chill”. Now THAT’s a funny bingo call but for all the wrong reasons.

    Number 24 – ‘Pompey’s Whore’

    Subtlety and nuance have forsaken popular culture, not that they always figured prominently in the old days you understand. Take ‘Pompey’s Whore’ for instance – a decidedly rude bingo call once used by ex-serviceman to describe Portsmouth’s women of the night. Needless to say, it’s long since been replaced with the safely innocuous, ‘Two Dozen’ and more lately, ‘Lads on Tour’.

    Number 11 – ‘Legs Eleven’

    Legs eleven refers of course to the number 11’s resemblance to a pair of legs – in and of itself not a very rude bingo call truth-be-told. But as tradition once dictated, when the call was announced baying OAP audiences were expected to respond with wolf whistles. As we all know, forcing breath between partly closed lips to create a rising and falling pitch is now frowned upon, regardless of context. Enter stage left, Gerard Merry.

    In a hold my beer moment back in 2014, Merry decided to uphold the aforementioned tradition. During a bingo night at his local club, he duly wolf-whistled when number 11 was called out. This prompted the staff to call in the police who then frog-marched Mr Merry off the premises. For good measure, the club then banned him for life.

    Number 11 – ‘Eyes on Fleek’

    These days, Number 11 is ‘Eyebrows on Fleek’. This is the creation of one Peaches Monroee [sic] – a girl who uploaded a selfie and used the phrase to describe her well-manicured eyebrows. Much online hilarity ensued and the term was eventually enshrined as a bingo call. Genius…

    Number 88 – ‘Two Body Positive Ladies’

    Dabbers Social Bingo decided to replace ‘Two Fat Ladies 88’ with this abomination, either as part of a noble effort to address issues surrounding body image, or as part of a virtue signalling manoeuvre aimed purely at outflanking the keypad warriors. Or perhaps they just wanted to attract millennial trendies and make loads of money. Whatever the case may be, the phrase doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. In our book, this makes it a ‘so bad it’s actually funny bingo call’. Other clubs, intent on offering guilt-free bingo, have opted for snappier alternatives such as ‘Wills and Kate 88’.

    Number 42 – Let’s Be Havin’ You

    This call refers to culinary icon-cum-Norwich City owner, Delia Smith and her inebriated pitch invasion of 2005 – an epochal moment in British sport if ever there was one. During the half-time interval of a Premier League match, a tired and emotional Mrs Smith staggered onto the field in high heel, ominously wielding a microphone. Tottering in front of the dugouts, our Delia then beseeched Norwich fans to redouble their support by bellowing said phrase, along with a slurred string of footballing banalities. In a ‘what on earth am I doing’ moment, she then handed the microphone to the cameraman and beat a hasty retreat. If you’ve never looked at something through the cracks between your fingers, we suggest you watch the video.

    Number 44 – ‘On all Fours’

    The effectiveness of innuendo depends entirely on the sheer filthiness of your mind. For instance, ‘On all fours’ could refer to a game of twister, a yoga position or maybe even potholing. It could also be an instructional comment about fixing a leaking kitchen tap. After all, there’s only one suitable posture for accessing the shut-off valve under your sink. And the Karate Kid crane stance ain’t it.

    Lots of room for interpretation then – think this would be enough to suppress the sniggers of your modern bingo player? You must be joking. Before we get on our high horse, we should add that ‘Aldershot Whores’ was once used for Number 44.

    Number 38 – Avocado on a Plate

    “Ah, city folk”, sighed an exasperated Jack Palance in classic 80s movie, City Slickers. In our present context this refers to young, health-conscious metropolitans who frequent places like Shoreditch. For most over-40s brought up on pie, mash and Woodbines, this really isn’t a fun group – more like a convention of morticians, actually. As far as us oldies are concerned, this frightful bingo call should therefore remain in modern clubs such as Dabbers – an establishment that serves salted edamame to the kind of patrons who’ll probably live well into their old age.

    Number 83 – Gluten Free

    Gluten free is a bingo call? Alas, yes. In addition to being a watchword for people with an intolerance to wheat proteins, not to mention those with an intolerance to being unfashionable, poor old ‘83’ has been lumbered with this wearisome phrase.

    Number 2 – Open a Window

    One particularly bawdy establishment opted for ‘open a window’ to accompany its number 2 call. Oh the hilarity. Without wishing to be too indelicate, most of us secretly know that ‘number two’ refers to a bodily function that can emit a striking odour (usually after eating salted edamame). In turn, this often compels one to open said wall aperture with great haste. We’d hazard a guess that such a call probably didn’t emanate from a Dabber’s Social Bingo chapter. Nah, this has got Bongo’s Bingo smeared all over it…

    Number 44 – Droopy Drawers

    A good old fashioned rhyming bingo call that makes reference to sagging underwear – fairly innocent by today’s standards.

    Number 5 – Man Alive

    Man alive has actually slipped into the British vernacular and is now commonly used as an interjection to convey surprise. Legend has it that the phrase was first used by sailors to alert their crew-mates after sighting a castaway.

    Number 10 – ‘Stick Your Tongue up a Hen’

    This most definitely belongs on a list of rude bingo calls as opposed to funny bingo calls. According to reliable online sources (we’ve checked, believe us) it does actually exist. Having said that, there’s scant information about the call’s origins, or for that matter the actual bingo premises in which it’s been used.

    Number 60 – Grandma’s Getting Frisky

    A lot of old bingo calls were the result of actual abstract thought, in sharp contrast to many of today’s garbage revisions. ‘Frisky’ rhymes with number 60 and was once the state pension age for women, hence why ‘grandma’ is the subject matter. Should this be considered a rude bingo call? Uh, if you like?

    Number 9 – Selfie Time

    Everybody’s a narcissist these days, apart from you and me of course. For those of you who hail from the Zeta Reticuli star system or some other far-flung galaxy, a ‘selfie’ describes the act of taking a picture of yourself with a smart-phone. The photo can then be posted on a social media platform for the instant gratification of one’s ego. Made famous by TV talk-show psychopath, Ellen Degeneres, the selfie is about as era-defining as you can get.

    Number 81 – Fat Lady with a Walking Stick

    In the very old days, we had marauding lynch mobs with flaming torches. Today we’ve got the Twitterati with smart phones. It’s therefore hard to understand just why this funny bingo call is still permitted. Surely it’s wrong-think? Apparently not, because the phrase is still widely used at plenty of venues – we’re unsure just how long this one is going to hold out though.

    Number 43 – ‘Down on Your Knee’

    Popularised during WW2 by British soldiers, this ‘rude’ bingo call has taken on a rather different meaning since thanks to the word ‘knee’ being pluralised.
