A good friend recommended Bingo Diamond to me a while ago, and after some time, I remembered that and decided to register and give it a go. A nice $15 do deposit bonus, very fast registration process and you get the bonus automatically, no need to contact the support or wait for it. Soon enough, I was browsing the casino looking at the offer, and they have the usual 75 and 90 ball bingo, as well as a nice selection of slots. Also, a quite interesting progressive slot choice. Still haven’t won any of those, but you never know.
I was in the mood for bingo, and although I have seen some slots that I will definitely try later, this time, it was me and 90 baller! I had $15 to burn at first, just to see how it all works.
Must say that I really love to listen to the teller, specially in those cases where they call more than just numbers (overweight 28 just to give you the example), but I got bored of it and just couldn’t find the option to mute! I was planning to chat a little bit with the roomies (almost 40 at the time I was playing), but after looking and the chat, I had a feeling that those were bots and not real people. Either way, I was concentrating on the numbers, and waiting to connect a line or two, and no matter how close I got, I wasn’t the first one to get to it. A bit disappointed, I waited for the full house. And I did get close, but not close enough I guess. I was patient to give it a few more tries, and I always buy the minimum number of tickets to qualify for free tickets, and this time was no different. So all in all, I burned through some 10 games (still in the Friendship room), being good spirited and optimistic I might add. The result was disappointing, since I didn’t get a single line, let alone a full house. It was like I was playing the same game, over and over again. Like a Groundhog day, but I just couldn’t find a way to break the spell. I like this site and do plan to come back, but I will let some time pass just to forget this episode.

I like comedies, jokes (even on my own expense); I have my favorite stand-up comedians whom I watch very often, over and over again. It is interesting though that children laugh 400 times per day compared to adults who only laugh 25 times per day. Another interesting fact about laughter is, you have probably noticed that we laugh more when watching a funny movie with friends than when we watch the same movie by ourselves. It’s quite astonishing that television producers of the 1950’s started setting sitcoms to laugh tracks to make the home audience laugh and enjoy the show more. It was before any studies showed that when studio audience laughs, we find ourselves laughing along with them.
So, for me it’s no wonder I enjoy playing bingo at sites with a positive vibe, and one of those is certainly Giggle Bingo. I had some nice experiences from before so I thought it would go the same way now. I entered a 90-ball room called Grapevine Room where the ticket price was £0.05. I stayed there for a very long time even though I had no success whatsoever. I even started thinking about going to a penny room to try and save some money and perhaps continue playing somewhere else a bit later. Instead of doing that, I entered another 90-ball or Snickers Room right away, but nothing changed. I was so annoyed. I couldn’t really believe it.
I have to admit that I was very unpleasantly surprised; whenever I had cards with one number to go someone else would be called a winner. Since there are no such things as one to go winner I was left penniless in every game I played. All I am left to do now is to laugh at this and forget it; I am hopeful that a session like this won’t happen again, or at least, not at any time soon.

I realized that I haven’t played at Comfy Bingo in a long time so I went there to test my luck again. I had some second thoughts about it since it’s never been my lucky place. But I decided to deposit £25 and see how things would go. There were so many players in every room and that additionally lowered my expectations. I entered a 90-ball room; I tried to play there even though it had just over 100 players. But on the bright side I thought, I played with 144 cards and another 56 free ones. I played two games there not being even close to a win. So, that was £15 in couple of minutes and I felt like I was wasting my money. I was very disappointed. I have to admit that I played there because of the prizes – I liked the idea of winning around £50 in just one game. Of course, it wasn’t meant to be.
Sometimes even when you are hit hard, it is important to keep trying and win some money but all within the budget limits. I chose the room where the ticket price was the same - £0.05, and with 96 cards it was cheaper to play. So, my choice was a 75-ball room. Unfortunately for me, it didn’t go much better – I was able to play only a few games; I was one to go winner only once and without any significant wins; you can’t do much with £0.9. There weren’t as many players but I still had no luck. I was supposed to play some slots but I was so annoyed that I couldn’t do it. I will have to reconsider whether I’m going to play here again; it looks like it’s just not the right place for me. So, I did test my luck and it didn’t end well.

Now I just know that many people heard of Bingo Mega before, for a simple reason, they are one of the oldest in the business. One could guess that just by looking at the site alone, and I often wondered why don’t they just change it at some point. I guess that most people don’t really care about the site design, but rather want to enjoy the games. Either way, I think they would get even more players if they just change the layout a little bit.
Even so, a decent number of players is there, and I have even managed to play a few rounds with under ten roomies, but sadly no success.
They have 10 rooms that work most of the time, so you can play whenever you log in, which is great since you don’t have to make special plans. What I like even more is that they have all the bingo variants, from 75 and 90 ball which are fairly regular, to the 30 ball bingo that I just love.
This time, I played 90 and 30 ball variants, with close to no success at all.
Just to remind you, there’s a nice new player bonus you can get, and you get it straight away, automatically after registration, which is great, no need to contact the support.
After browsing the rooms to see what goes on, I picked the ones with just a few players and decent prizes (and of course, jackpots). Funny enough, I haven’t won a jackpot in a long time, and I am pretty anxious to see if it is going to happen again anytime soon.
Sad to report that I played over 20 games, with varying number of tickets, and not a single line to win even the smallest prize. I guess it is just one of those times you don’t win, but I hope that next time will be better.
As for Bingo Mega, apart my thoughts of their layout and site design, can’t say anything bad, just the opposite. I hope I will get it next time.

Until recently the idea of the internet being addictive would have just draw a chuckle. But the Internet has become an integral part our lives and Internet Addiction Disorder has become a reality. It made me think how many people don’t have all the symptoms; I will admit it – I have a panic attack if my internet connection is bad. Luckily, nowadays it doesn’t happen too often and I don’t want it to happen when I play bingo.
I went to Busy Bingo, and I decided to play in a 90-ball room – the prize money wasn’t impressive but there weren’t many players. My hopes were moderately high and I thought I could calculate with how many tickets I could play. I didn’t know whether I should have been happy or not with the outcomes of the first few games; I was one to go winner every time winning around £0.50. There was a, let’s call it an interesting, situation when I needed 14 or 16 to cover Full House but after a few calls I heard 15 and someone else won the game. Ahh… that was so irritating.
In the next game I won Any Line part winning £3.19 – I was pleasantly surprised. But unfortunately, it was pretty much the highlight of the evening…. I had other small wins and I was one to go winner a few more times but there was nothing else rememberable.
It was time for some slots and the first one my list was “Tropical Island” and it was awful I lost a lot and nothing good happened. I thought to take a chance on the “Fish Toons” slot that has been redesigned and it looked interesting. And it was a really good game; even though there are no features the base game pays really well and with some cool combinations I completely recovered my balance. But then things turned bad for me and it was an empty spin after another. At the end I lost only £10 – it could have been much worse.
