Thankfully you don’t need to have a university degree to play bingo, as it’s not a difficult game to master. Millions of people throughout the world can vouch for that. You play to relax and enjoy the buzz and excitement and winning some dosh along the way can’t be bad. Like any other game you play you have to know the lingo and be able to talk the talk which means to speak fluently or convincingly about something in a way to impress others. Ok, I hear you moan (but I don’t want to impress anyone thank you). Then it’s good to learn to increase your skill and feel more comfortable around your bingo pals. If you are a poker player, you know what is “Fold, Call and Raise” as well as a “Royal flush, Full House, Trips” etc because not knowing would be somewhat embarrassing and nobody would take you seriously. Similarly with bingo, you have to learn the vocabulary and the acronyms used, especially when chatting on an online bingo game in a chat room.
For beginners it’s a bit daunting but if this is your game of choice then the more you learn the more comfortable you feel. Practice makes perfect like everything in life. Seasoned bingo players, who have got years of practice under their belt, will instantly recognise the acronyms in our little match up game and won’t need to look for the answers that are mixed up. Newbie’s will take longer but it’s a fun teaser and all things bingo should be fun. It’s a well known fact, you learn while you are having fun and the knowledge sticks. In the chat rooms, acronyms are used effectively to create brevity and clarity as quickly as possible. You don’t want to have to write screeds to get your message across. Short, succinct acronyms do the trick nicely. When you have worked out our game, you may observe all the acronyms are positive and uplifting because in a chat room you want to have a good atmosphere (a good vibe).
