Bingo Lingo

When playing bingo and chatting whilst online, you will find a completely new world of abbreviations and computer slang. That's in addition to all the standard nicknames for the numbers that are used in bricks and mortar bingo rooms, but less so online. And for all of you, glam girls, why don't you try out the fabulous new bingo numbers - Bingo Calls at 888ladies
