Recently, a friend challenged me to a half hour online bingo session. Now, I must admit, I’ve never really played online bingo before, other than here and there with my better half. Somehow I wasn’t quite into the clearly pro-female angle, the pink bubbly fonts and the prizes which included shopping trips and pink champagne. But, there I was, 10 pm on a Saturday night, logging into Foxy Bingo and seeing how much money I could make in that single half hour session.
OK, so first a confession. I kinda liked that warm fuzzy feeling that I got after a few minutes at the online bingo site (which is the longest I’ve ever spent playing bingo over the internet). After a few minutes, you forget that you scoffed at the pink fonts and the fluffy animal logos, and you start to concentrate on the warm welcome you received, the generous welcome bonus and the fantastic chat hosts you simply can’t do enough for you to make you feel at home.
When I accessed a chat room because I thought I’d need something to sustain me while the clock ticked by, I was instantly met by one of the nicest bunch of people I’ve ever come across – online and off. They simply made my stay so welcome that there is not a chance in hell that I won’t be back to chat some more! The buzzing chat rooms run24/7 so if I’m in insomnia mode, I can simply log on to the bingo site and someone will be there from somewhere in the world, willing to chat to me. My New Best Friends taught me all about the bingo terminology used at the site, as well as some bingo lingo.
At this point, I need to say that the social side of online bingo is very important, but obviously not the only reason to visit a bingo site (for me, anyway). I purchased some bingo tickets and tried out a couple of bingo rooms at the site. I was surprised at the level of competition and the fast paced action, as well as the generous prizes available at the end. I landed up winning more than what I sometimes make playing online slots, which also surprised me.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable half our bingo session (which stretched on closer to an hour) and I’ll definitely be back for more!
