A very merry unbirthday to you, to you. It's great to drink to someone and I guess that you will do. A very merry unbirthday to you. In celebration of my unbirthday I spent the evening with the Wonderland slot at Sun Bingo and had a tea party of my own.
I don’t know how else to describe this slot but adorable. The music is soothing and the symbols paint the perfect fairy tale picture. Vines separate the reels and reach out connecting winning combinations. There’s also a progressive jackpot. As usual, I fantasized about what I would do if I won it. Wonderland is simply magical.
I began with £1 per spin. With 100 lines wagering on Wonderland is steep to say the least. The highest paying symbol is Alice herself followed by the Mad Hatter. The White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat also make an appearance.
I allowed a small bankroll to experiment with. The bonus is exciting. Three bonus symbols on the reels cause three tiny doors to appear. Choose one and Alice drinks a potion to shrink her down to size allowing her to proceed. Choose between two cards and win a prize when you choose the high card. When you choose the low card, you win your line bet.
I got so caught up in the cuteness of this slot that I hit the spin button and had run out of credits. Each spin was had me enchanted. I landed one bonus round but it wasn’t enough to keep me going.
I was left with nothing but soggy tea bags. I think I can hear the Red Queen yelling “off with her head”.

What is the “X” factor? There’s just that something unique and interesting drawing us in. XBingo is like being carried off to another world.
Sign up was easy peasy. I got £5 free after registering a card. I went to the 90 ball rooms and there are two for players that are not “funded”. I chose the room with the bigger prize but it wouldn’t load. I received an error message of trouble loading the page several times. I gave it a few minutes and I was back in business. I bought 48 cards for £2.40.
I had just over 3 minutes before the game started so I looked around the room. They have awesome slots such as The 50,000 Pyramid, Elvis and Monopoly. The bonus money may not be used on slots so I was out of luck there.
The game was in progress. I was so irritated. You know when you need a number and they call the number before it, after it and the reverse of it? Well that was me. I was going crazy. I really like one of the chat features at XBingo. The status of all the players is streaming in the chat box. 5tg, 4tg, 3tg and so on. It really puts me on edge even more because I can see how well others are doing.
Looking at chat, my cards and the calls, I felt like my eyes were crossed. It made for a really exciting game though. I won £1.72 for the double line. That money went into my cash account so I could have maybe one spin on the slots. My only complaint is the long wait between games.
Like a moth to a flame I’m drawn to XBingo because they’ve got IT!

Taking a Caribbean cruise……
I the most beautiful destinations I have travelled have been in Caribbean. Being a sun worshipper and lover of the sea, the beaches have me awestruck. Not to mention the tropical cocktails and sunsets that seems to sink into the abyss until sunrise.
I decided to play at Bingo Flash and have a Caribbean gambling adventure. I have always been a poker lover and decided to head to the tables to play Caribbean Poker.
Caribbean Poker is different from other poker games because a player plays against the dealer not against other players. The fundamentals of the game are similar and before the start of the game there is an ante.
I bet a $2.00 ante and was dealt 5 cards down with the dealer showing one card up of his 5 cards. The card showing is an Ace which meant the dealer stayed in and both are hands are shown face up on the table.
I had a pair of 6’s showing and the dealers best hand was Ace high. I made a nice little profit with $12 in chips.
The the rank of wins are the same as any standard poker with the Royal Flush being the biggest payout of 100-1.
I will have to remember to play again when I have a larger starting bankroll and I can place higher bets.
For now the only tropical celebration in sight is to put a umbrella in my drink and fill up the kiddie pool and pretend I am floating in paradise.

Like a rich jewel….
One of the most tragic love stories of all time has to be Romeo and Juliet. I was about 8 when I learned to appreciate not only romance but Shakespeare. There was one quote I carried with me “like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear”. My sister would laugh at me as I would recite it through the house and in wonderment as to how that passage stuck with me.
I went into the .25 Soda Pop Café room at Instant Bingo and in a instant I saw the the bingo pattern “poison” and thought of beautiful Juliet. The Chat Moderator Wizzard was happy as lark and is one of my favorites there.
This was a Jackpot game worth $1,595.76 in 17 calls or less. Shakespeare once said “Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered”, I promised myself if I won i would definitely steer that kind of fortune right into my bank account!
Nobody won the jackpot and the consolation prize was $39.45 with all 22 players hoping to claim a bingo on. I had a feeling 17 calls would be a bit rough to accomplish to begin with.
I had 1TG on two cards I-24 and I-21 when a bingo was called after 33 numbers. I had $10.00 left in my account and played two more rounds of bingo and never came that close to win again.
Until next time…… "Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good i night till it be morrow."
p.s what is an Ethiope anyway?

King Jackpot was generous enough to allow LatesBingoBonuses.com to offer an exclusive sign up bonus. I love free, so I took advantage immediately.
King Jackpot Bingo requires a download. I’m not really a fan of that and the lobby and graphics could use some updating. That said, the site is very easy to use. If you utilize the chat feature, you’ll love it. It has smiley faces built right in and it’s large enough to read. The bingo rooms are simple with pull tabs and slots available. As a new player, there are hints placed around the room. The bingo balls drop down in a way that reminds me of Keno. Live support is also available within the software which is also a plus.
As for my bingo game, I purchased 20 cards which was the max I was allowed and the prizes were pretty low in the Newbie room. If you “activate” your account by becoming a depositing player you will have access to a much better prize pool. I was waiting for two numbers forever on 3 cards for the line prize. I knew they wouldn’t be called but I was set up nicely for a double line. Sure enough, two numbers to go on two separate cards almost immediately then one to go for two lines. I needed 48 on one card and 40 on another. Two opportunities for bingo blew right by me. I was on edge waiting for either number but someone else beat me to it. The full house was in my grasp but quickly slipped through my fingers. I had some close calls on this round and I was gritting my teeth the entire time.
Right when I thought my head was going to explode, I suddenly remembered 20 free spins were part of the exclusive offer. I’ve certainly got some spinning to do.
Take advantage of the exclusive offer and bingo or spin your way to a jackpot at King Jackpot.
