If you’re new to online bingo, you may be wondering how it all works and what you should be doing. While bingo is a simple game to play, there are a few things you can do to make sure you have a great gaming experience. From being informed about the specific game you’re playing to keeping your personal information confidential, we’ve prepared a few tips to make sure you stay safe and have fun.

Set a Budget

Setting a budget can help you to manage your gameplay and make sure you are gambling responsibly. Before you start playing, take a moment to decide how much you will spend - and stick to it no matter what. 

Only play with what you can afford, and don’t be tempted to spend more than your budget! Never gamble with money that should go towards bills, rent or other expenses.

Setting a time limit is also a great idea; you could even set a timer on your phone to let you know when it’s time to stop.

Learn about the Online Bingo Game You’re Playing

One of our favourite things about online bingo is the huge variety of games. From 90 ball bingo to 75 and even 30 ball games, the choice is yours! Here at Slingo we also have a great selection of different bingo rooms and types of game, from community jackpot games where all players receive a share of the total prize pot to more traditional jackpot games.

Although many online bingo games have similarities, each specific game will have its own rules. It’s important to familiarise yourself with the rules for the game you’re playing before it starts. Make sure you know what constitutes a win, for example, as well as how to buy tickets and how prizes are shared out.

Don’t Reveal Your Personal Information

Online bingo is a fun, sociable game where you can chat to other players in chat rooms alongside playing the game. Although it’s great to get to know your fellow players and enjoy some friendly banter, it’s important to respect each other’s privacy online. 

This means never asking anyone for their personal details - and never telling anyone your personal information, either. Although every effort is made to protect our players from danger, it’s unwise to trust people you have only ‘met’ online. You should never reveal details like your full name, address or bank details under any circumstances.

Here at Slingo, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our players and keeping your personal data secure and confidential. For more information, you can read about our privacy policy here.

Learn the Bingo Lingo

Although it’s not necessary to learn to enjoy the game, online bingo comes with some unique words and phrases we like to call ‘bingo lingo’! Bingo callers often use rhymes or funny phrases to make it clear which number they’re referring to. Some of the most common are ‘two fat ladies = 88’ or ‘legs 11’, but there are many more!

There are also a number of abbreviations, similar to ‘text language’, which are used by players in the online bingo chat rooms. From ‘1TG’ for ‘one ball to go’ to ‘GL’, meaning ‘good luck’, there are plenty of abbreviations to try out.

But don’t worry if you haven’t learnt the bingo lingo - it’s not necessary to know it to play, and you can still have a great time without it! All your matching numbers will be marked off automatically on your cards, and all wins are awarded automatically too. This means you don’t need to worry about shouting ‘bingo!’ - although you can if you want to, of course!

Remember That Bingo Is a Game of Chance

It’s important to remember that online bingo is a game of chance. Outcomes are predicted by a Random Number Generator (RNG), which is a computer system that is almost impossible to predict. 

With this in mind, it’s important to remember that bingo is all about having fun. Don’t get caught up on whether you’re winning or losing, and if it is the latter then don’t be a sore loser!

If you’re starting to feel frustrated or not enjoying the game any more, it’s time to take a break. You could go for a walk, speak to a friend or watch your favourite TV show instead.

And if you’re concerned that your gaming may be becoming a problem, make sure you seek help. Find out more about responsible gambling and where to get help here.
