Bingo Lingo

When playing bingo, you will often hear phrases after each number called. An experienced player who may have played in bingo halls or clubs will be used to it but many new online users may wonder what this is all about.

The phrases allow players to precisely distinguish a number from another to avoid any confusion. Within a bingo club environment, the noise level can sometimes affect the clarity of hearing and this method allowed drawn numbers to be audible by the entire audience. This was particularly important in clubs as in order to win (should the card be complete), the winner(s) has to be the first to shout bingo. Failing to do so, the next player completing their bingo card who shouted "bingo" first would become the winner. As the online bingo games are fully automated the importance of such a method is far lesser. However, operators have kept the tradition going.

The sentences used tend to rhyme with their respective number. It demands a little get use to it before getting fully familiar with each number/ sentence association so to help you in that process, we have provided the complete list of already made phrases in relation to their respective numbers:
