Anyone likes word games? I do. Do you know what lipogram is? That’s a text written without using a particular letter of the alphabet. The hardest one is without the letter E which is the most common letter in both English and especially in French. Now imagine being in a position of a French writer Georges Perec, when a friend challenged him to write a whole novel without using E. Perec was an extremely clever writer and he loved word games and puzzles; he wrote crossword puzzles for Paris magazines. He accepted the challenge but again, just imagine, a novel in French without words like “une”, “le”, “je”, “elle” or “est” etc. But this “impossible” rule unlocked his imagination and he even claimed that he wrote this novel faster than any of his other books. It was called “La Disparation” – a mysterious disappearance of a character called A. When the book was published, the critics failed to spot what was so special about the book. Embarrassing!
One bingo site used an interesting word game in its name – Bingo Bytes. Even though it’s a unit of data which is 8 binary digits long, it is pronounced the same way as “bites” and I can’t stop thinking about having bites of my favorite food. I have already played there a few times without much luck so I was hoping for some changes now. There were a lot of players everywhere so I decided to enter one of the 90-ball rooms which had a bit less than 20 players. I stayed there for a while but nothing happened. I didn’t want to play there any longer so I entered another 90-ball room which had over 80 players. I tried the reverse psychology on the site to see if it was going to work. But it didn’t, it was awful, like a nightmare. I spent all my money and I couldn’t even play my favorite – bingo slots. I think I won’t play at this bingo rooms again. You see, I didn’t use letter E in my previous sentence. Woohoo, a success!

Growing up, one of my biggest wishes was to be a teacher. Even as a 12 or 13 year old kid, I started thinking about different ways to keep my classes interesting and kids entertained. I didn’t really have many good teachers so from a very young age I had a really clear idea about my teaching methods. My idea was to help kids fall in love with science. My favorite subjects were geography and history, but I would have been happy if my students had been intrigued by any other subject. Certainly, one of the most important things would be a positive atmosphere in a classroom; there are many creative ways to animate kids, as well as all students in general. Could you just imagine – learning geography and history with different bingo games; anything can be done with themed bingo cards. I have just realized – bingo is omnipotent. It could be such an educational tool but at the same time, bingo is a source of great fun – all in one.
Maybe someone might build a House of Bingo, the same name as a bingo site where I love to play online bingo. When I visited the site, a 90-ball room had many players and I bought tickets for a game that was about to start. I also bought tickets for an 80-ball room which didn’t have many players but I knew I had some good chances to win some money. The prize pool was very low; in case I’d win all four parts of a game, it would be just over my bet. My feeling was right, in the 90-ball room I didn’t win anything, not even one to go winner prize. In the other room, I was winning left and right; I can’t be sure I might have played all by myself. I stopped myself from those sarcastic thoughts and kept enjoying my bingo wins. Following not very rewarding but successful bingo games I played one of my favorite slots – “Coffee House”. It was again very nice to play it. I triggered 5 Free Spins winning £3.80 and at the end, in total, I raised my balance by £5.
It wasn’t that bad after all, maybe I didn’t win much but I enjoyed my favorite bingo games and pondered about putting bingo to a good, educational use.

As many other people that live alone or with their roommates or anyone that’s not their mom who’ll cook for them, food delivery is probably like a gift from heaven. I don’t like to cook, I don’t enjoy it and I use any opportunity to order food. It doesn’t matter if it’s Chinese, Japanese, Italian or any other, it’s so good that when I’m hungry, I don’t have to move a finger and still, I have fresh food prepared only for me. There’s another occasion when food delivery comes in handy, and that is when I play online bingo. Too bad I need to get up and open the door when the food arrives but still, that’s far better than preparing it on my own.
Well, this weekend, just before I began my bingo adventure at Bob’s Bingo, hunger started creeping in. I surely wasn’t going to cook anything so I ordered some pizza. Of course, I started playing before my precious food arrived and I must admit that it got much better with the food in front of me. I first bought tickets in an 80-ball room but since one game has just been started, I had to wait so I went in a 75-ball room and bought cards for a game that was about to start. I was hoping not to get confused especially since I couldn’t stop thinking of the delicious pizza that was on its way to me. Generally, the whole evening went pretty bad for me; on a few occasions I was one to go winner; each time I won less than £1 so it was pretty pathetic. I even played one BOGOF game and still nothing; having six cards with one more number to go I got £0.6
I was also playing some slots; the first one was “Arabian Nights”. I raised my bet to £1.80 and I played it only briefly since I lost £40 in no time. I switched to the “Santa in Town” slot and after I lost another £20 I stopped - enough is enough as Donna Summer would say. Luckily, I had some pizza that helped me take these losses easier.

Have you ever done something that you knew you shouldn’t have done before you did it? This was me when I went to Virgin Games to play Fire Opals. I’ve had bad experiences with this slot game before but something compelled me to give it another go at Virgin Bingo.
The game pays right to left and left to right with 720 ways to win but I always find these multi ways to win slots to be interesting because I can’t even win one way let alone 720! Siberian Storm is another IGT slot that’s basically identical to Fire Opals and I’ve played both in the land based casinos.
All I can do is complain about this slot so I’m still not sure why I played it. The memories came rushing back to me as soon as I realized that I needed at least one bonus symbol all 5 reels in order to trigger the bonus. That’s super hard to do.
Of course I got 4 fire opals on 4 reels which was a tease and made me crazy waiting for the 5th. It’s funny but it seems like the 5th reel took an eternity to spin.
I lost my bankroll in no time at all. I must remember to avoid this slot because it just doesn’t like me. I think I’ll leave the fire opals for my jewelry.

I think it’s a fantastic thing to be an Australian; it’s the second country to give women right to vote in 1902 and today voting is compulsory. Schools have a no hat /no play policy and that means that children must wear a hat to protect them from the sun or they have to sit in the shade during recess. Although people say “koala bears”, koala isn’t a bear but a marsupial. In 1954, Bob Hawke entered the Guinness Book of Records for gulping down 2.5 pints of beer in just 11 seconds and 29 years later the same man became the prime minister of Australia, that’s pretty cool. Cotton candy is called fairy floss and all candies are referred to as lollies. And now they have a great bingo site, so do we really need anything else?!
Aussie Dollar Bingo is a completely new site and it was a really exciting thing to try it out. It has all the qualities that I like – my favorite bingo software and games, great community and fantastic prizes. As fast as I could, I chose to play in Mega Room where for 30 bought tickets players get 10 for free. I played there considering how (un)lucky I have been recently - I thought I could use all the help I could get. The prizes were pretty high comparing to how much I have played for in the recent months – between $70 and $80. So, I was very nervous hoping that I wouldn’t end up with $0 on my account. The first pattern was a Clown face and after it ended that’s all I could do – make clown faces. As the games passed by I was further and further from a win. I started to wonder whether I was playing with the same amount of cards as other players. But I guess that the magic fairy didn’t sprinkle lucky dust on me or perhaps I needed a flood of luck to help me win something. I guess I will never know.
