Bingo Chat and Bingo Lingo.
Abbreviations and what they mean

In an online bingo hall, irrespective of whether you are playing no deposit bingo or for real money, you are dealing with a virtual environment. You can't give Flo' a dig in the ribs to point out something and you can't shout across the room. Online bingo does not facilitate vocal input, as all communication is done through the online chat in writing. You can of course hear the caller but that's it. You learn to use the chat window though, where you can have a private chat or contribute to the comments, fun and general banter made by everyone including the chatmaster.

Now, if you can imagine everyone using spellcheck, everyone checking their grammer, and everyone saying what they want to say, you're now talking about heaps of time and far too much to read anyway. Enter the new world of Online Bingo Chat Lingo. A myriad of abbreviations to cover almost every situation. What a plus! You can interact at speed and enjoy the company of many people without needing to develop speed typing skills! Here then is our list of chatroom abbreviations.
