You may be forgiven for thinking that bingo players are people of a singular passion. It’s certainly true that you’re unlikely to find a more dedicated group of enthusiasts anywhere else on the internet (or elsewhere) than the community here at BingoPort. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have other hobbies: watching a good film with a bingo twist, or having a boogie to some songs with tenuous bingo links, for example.
In the same vein, we’ve decided to bring the joy of bingo to another of our favourite pastimes—curling up with a good book. Check out what happened when we put a bingo spin on some of these popular book titles!
The original book is now so tired that even charity shops don’t want it anymore. That’s why we’ve decided to spice things up a little bit. Don’t get the wrong idea—our revamped version of E.L. James’ book is markedly less X-rated than the original, but is (in our humble opinion) much more exciting. That’s because we’re exploring some of the many different bingo variations out there; with UK and US bingo, as well as newer variants like 80-ball bingo and 5-line bingo, there’s something out there for everyone!
The original book has, over the past decade, become a classic read for beach holidays, telling the story of one woman’s journey towards self-discovery and living a fulfilling life. So, where does bingo come into all of this? Well, it turns out that there are plenty of health benefits to playing online bingo too! So, don’t feel too guilty the next time you log in to the chat—you’re just taking one step closer to becoming zen.
On the other hand, bingo isn’t always about chilling out. There’s also plenty of serious money to be won—and we all know the adrenaline rush that comes when you’ve got 1TG. It doesn’t matter if you end up winning or losing—there’s no thrill that can beat a great game of bingo!
Okay, so this title may not be entirely accurate. Every bingo site worth its salt will have a thriving community with plenty of roomies to chat to day and night. Here at BingoPort, however, we’ve had a go at trying to come up with six of the most common types of bingo roomie. (Five just wasn’t enough!) So, are you more of a social butterfly, a bingo veteran, or even a bit of a recluse? Take our bingo roomie quiz to find out!
Fess up—we know all our regulars will have one or two skeletons in their closet! Whether it’s going a little bit overboard and not sticking to your bingo budget, or even believing in some of the most common bingo myths, we’ve all been guilty of one or two bingo sins.
If you’re still a newbie, you might be wondering what happens when there’s a lull between games. The truth is that there’s never a dull moment in the chatroom—and part of the reason why is that roomies also play bingo chat games. These extra little games provide more ways to win points and bonuses, and most of the time, they’re completely free! (And don’t worry—it’s nowhere near as brutal as the Hunger Games… hopefully!)
Whilst all roomies play a key part in the bingo community, one player has a more important role than most: the chat moderator. These are the all-seeing eyes of the chatroom, as well as being motherly (or fatherly) figures to newcomers, a fountain of knowledge for anyone seeking help, and the ringleader of the chatroom entertainment. Think you’ve got what it takes to join their ranks? Check out our guide covering how to be the best bingo chat moderator!
We’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t admit that the winning was a big part of why we play bingo. There are huge jackpots and great prizes up for grabs every single week on all of our favourite sites—why not check out our news section to keep up to date with all the latest promotions?
Whilst most of us are drawn into playing bingo by the prospect of getting our hands on some cold, hard cash, we stay for the warmth and personal connections we make with our fellow roomies. There are plenty of tales of bingo roomies who’ve become firm friends away from the sites, and even some BingoPort love stories! Most notable of all, however, is the story of the long lost sisters who reunited through BingoPort—if you haven’t heard it yet, you need to check out our timeline of events!
We didn’t even have to alter this one—there really is no feeling like winning at bingo!
