My face needs to be added to the Hollywood Reels slot game because I was an absolute star week. I paid an old friend a visit, Bingo Flash. I had some cash in my account so I hit the slots. Little by little my bankroll increased. That’s my kind of gambling day.
I played a few slots before I ended up on Hollywood Reels. A few spins in and things just starting happening. After my last bad luck experience, it was a welcomed change. Hollywood Reels has a minimum bet of $0.05 per line. With only 9 lines that’s not a bad deal. The reels feature all things related to the silver screen. My husband loves it because he’s a movie fanatic. Hollywood Reels suits him.
My only problem with this Parlay slot game is the bonus round. That Dream Home bonus is impossible! I would love to meet a person that has managed to guess 3 numbers of the security code much less all 4. Meeting such a person would be like seeing a unicorn.
Anyway, the bonus hit twice. Each time I chose my numbers completely randomly. I didn’t used birthdays, anniversaries or any significant numbers for that matter. I normally enter a date that means something to me but either way I can’t get near that dream home. I did build my bankroll up over $100. It was a slow progression. No major wins but Hollywood Reels was hot hot hot!
I wonder if anyone has ever won the dream home. While I research, you start playing Hollywood Reels at Bingo Flash and get that dream home.

You’re sleepy, very sleepy. You drift into a deep sleep and begin to dream. You’re getting a £15 sign up bonus to play bingo in this dream. You’re surrounded by a friendly chat host, friendly players and Microgaming was there too. An alarm clock counts down the final seconds before the bingo game begins. It’s Dream Bingo.

It’s all about having a "hats off" kind of win…..
It has been awhile since I had a major win. I’m talking about a throw your hat off and let it swirl through the air kind of win. I want to tap dance across my kitchen floor kind of win. Do cart wheels across my front lawn kind of win. Jump up and down and scream hallelujah kind of win……….
Hats Off Bingo has a nice $20 no deposit free chip and I had to run right to it. It’s definitely a different kind of site with gaming I have not seen before. I was of course mesmerized by the slots! Unfortunately it wouldn’t allow me to play slots but it did allow me to play Video Poker.
There is no denying I love Video Poker and I must say the graphics and sound effects are spectacular and one of the best I have ever seen for a online bingo site. There are actually two types of Video Poker. One is Ultra while the other is Classic. It took me a minute to figure out what the difference is. The games are identical as well as the payout. The only difference is the graphics. Ultra Poker is the ultimate experience.
I settled on Aces & Faces Ultra Poker. I like this game because the face cards with the ace are kickers replacing the more traditional 2,3,4 kickers. I played a few hands and hit two pairs several times.
Then it struck me….. the Royal Flush is worth 1250 credits. Now I am not sure about the rest of you but I have never seen a Royal Flush less then 4,000 credits with all coins in. So I stopped playing for now and need to check out the other poker games for bigger payouts.
For now I will leave my hat on, kick off my tap shoes, leave the front door shut and sit still in my chair……

I like to have a cocktail or two so when I saw a purple hippo sipping a martini in a coconut bra I thought; this is my kind of place!
Hippo Bingo was offering a £5 no deposit bonus so I signed up right away. You can only get the registration bonus if you register valid card details. I chose the Nifty Ninety room. Cards were on sale for 40p each. You purchase strips rather than individual cards. The Full House was worth £18.83.
The game began with heaven’s gate 78. My eyes were glued to my 12 cards. Not long after I needed number four for one line and waited for like 8 or 9 calls. It went to a player called mince. I need 49 and 5 for two lines but no cigar. The game was flying by. No luck for me and my ND was spent except for 20p. The bonus really does give you just a sample of their games.
One thing that I thought was really cool about Hippo Bingo was that when a game is closed, you click on a box that takes you directly to the room where the next game is about to begin. You can constantly play bingo with almost no wait time. If you don’t purchase tickets, you are automatically taken to the room where the next game is about to begin. No watching games in progress here.
Hippo Bingo also has free bingo for funded players and free bingo for all players. I wasn’t yet a funded player since I was playing with the bonus. Not quite ready to go home, I played for the jackpot of £1. The prizes were 20p for one line, 30p for two lines and 50p for the full house in free bingo.
Luck wasn’t on my side today but I was inspired by the purple hippo.

What is Santa Doing in July Anyway!
It is the half way mark to Christmas, thus Christmas in July. I never cease the opportunity about this favorite holiday of mine. It got me to thinking just what does this jolly old man with a belly that wiggles when he laughs do in July. I think I found the answer at Bingo Castle where the spirit of the season looms all year through………
I headed over to Bingo Castle and decided to play the slot Christmas Carol. I have never played this before and wasn’t quite sure if I would care for it but soon found out I was pleasantly surprised.
This is a 25 line slot with a coin value minimum of .05. I decided to play at 1.25 per spin and start out slow. I liked the graphics with many things on the reels that represented the season. Santa himself has gone wild with snowmen, Christmas trees, candles and santa’s hat.
The tidy little present is the symbol for the bonus round that is triggered when three appear on the reels. Just to clarify so you don’t get too excited the bonus symbols have to line up in a winning position in order to be valid. I saw three of them initially and got all excited for nothing!
Besides the great graphics there were sounds to match. Every time I clicked the spin button there were be a jingle of bells followed by Silent Night as the reels spun. I thought this was really adorable.
I was able to get the bonus round a couple times as it launched me to a new screen where three reindeer were waiting. I had to click on just one for a cash prize that is behind it. The win was small as I soon realized the real money was on the reels.
The more I played this bingo slot the faster I fell in love with it. The payouts on the reels were impressive and kept me spinning this slot for a little over an hour. I think the next time I play this I will play 2 bets per line and see if I can make a better profit. I brought my balance down to zero but loved every second of playing!
I have to say that this is one of the best Christmas themed slots I have seen. I will surely have to come back to it when the holiday season is in full bloom to put me in the spirit.

Momma always told me to trust my instincts. As with many things, she was right. My instincts have carried me through life and have taught me some valuable lessons. On a much smaller scale, they kicked in during my bingo session.
I was on the hunt for cash or bingo bucks that I may have forgotten about. I wanted to play bingo but didn’t really want to spend any of my own cash. I logged in to quite a few sites but found that I had spent my bankroll in each. Ready to give up, I found a few bucks in Bingo Bytes.
Bingo Bytes has several versions of bingo to choose from such as 90, 80, 75 and 30 ball bingo. Since 90 ball is my absolute favorite, I went with that. The fact that it had the highest prize might have swayed me a bit too. I was very excited to see 10 cards free right away. I bought 25 giving me a total of 35 bingo tickets to play with. The prizes were pretty good.
I had a vibe that I wasn’t going to do very well. I was right. The line prize was gone in an instant and the same for the double line. On to the full house and I thought it was only my first game so I wasn’t going to let this get me down. Gosh darn it! I had 1 card with 2 to go, numbers 29 and 52. As soon as I started to get a flicker of excitement and energy going, bingo was called.
As a test I went back after my game and bought one ticket. I still got 10 free! I hung around to play but no luck. With bingo bucks left I opted to call it a day. Those babies are precious and I wanted to save them for when I was feeling lucky. It just wasn’t in the balls for me today.

You might be a pauper, a poet, a pawn or a King.........
But when you are by the sea you are pirate! Sitting along the sea on the Barbican in Plymouth, i'm taking in the rich history of England dating back to the 1500's. If you look close enough you can still see damage from the pirates when they shot the cannon from ships in British waters. I love to hear stories of history. Not being a history buff myself and day dreaming in school more then i should of, it was nice to have a history scholar in tow......
I had to head over to 123 bingo where i was reminded of the rich history of some of the greatest castles i have ever seen with Kings Castle. I have never had a real lot of luck on this slot but it just one of those machines i love to play. Maybe it is the fairy tale romance i have held since a little girl that keeps me coming back time and time again. This slot is available on Treasure Island.
The reels have the king himself, the queen the jesters, shields and knights in armor. It is a 25 line slot which happens to be my favorite amount of lines to play. I like the fact that i can play as little as one cent coin value. I played a total of .25 per spin and instead of dreaming about my prince i dreamed about free spins!
I think that free spins have to be my favorite kind of bonus round. Not to mention this slot does have a really cool bonus round for free spins. Once triggered it brings me to another screen with a big wheel. I hit the spin button to determine the number of spins and my multiplier.
I really didn't win too much on the bonus round with $5.40 added to my bankroll. But there is something really magical about that wheel that i keep thinking about and of course keep playing so i can spin it again. It was uneventful as far as a winning session but it was fun anyway.
It's a mystery why some slot machines draw us to them whether we win or not. This just happens to be one of them. Maybe one day i will go back to the real life castles and hear about the history that keeps me as mesmerized as this slot.

There’s only one true queen of bingo and she lives in a land called Jackpotjoy!
I had discovered the latest slot game release at Jackpotjoy, Nuts & Bolts. The slot lover that I am, I just had to give it a try. To be completely honest, I thought it was so boring at first. A robot pulling a screen with all these wheels, gears, nuts and bolts was not my idea of a fun slot. After a few spins I was thinking about how much fun I could be having playing bingo or another slot game. Then it happened! Three matching symbols lined up and the Winning Streak began. When three symbols match, they are locked in place and the reels spin locking in each additional connecting match. All you can do is pray that more symbols connect and match up. The more you get the bigger the payout. I won £30 or so and I just had to post my new found love on the forum. There’s no bonus round but the Winning Streak feature definitely makes up for it.
I have been back several times since. This game is so addictive. I have dreams about playing it. This time I had £25 to wager with. Of course I chose Nuts & Bolts. The first 10 spins resulted in nothing but then those symbols locked. It was re-spins, wilds and robots galore. It’s so exciting when that happens. This slot can really keep you going for a while. There’s quite a few ups and downs but so fun.
That nutty Jackpotjoy queen has got me going nutty over Nuts & Bolts!

This weekend I made some slap yo momma hot sauce. I mean this salsa is so hot it’ll make you wanna slap yo momma! I logged into Bingo Anywhere last night and found that the Hot Habanero slot was calling my name. I was still in the mood for some hot stuff.
Bets range from 5p up to 50p per line. You can bet up to 3 coins on all 15 lines. That’s pretty steep in my book so I set my bet to 75p per spin. A few spins in and I hit four sombreros across the top line with a wild for £2.50. The symbols include tacos, margaritas, donkeys, tamales, piñatas and of course, habaneros. I had to laugh when I saw the tacos do a little dance. They shake it if you hit two or more on a pay line.
I was hoping to see the bonus round before I ran out of bingo bucks. Three of the gold toothed man wearing a sombrero launches the bonus round. My wish came true. The Fortuna Wheel spun just for me. The wheel of multipliers spins. As long as you don’t land on a duplicate a multiplier, you can continue to spin the wheel. I was four spins in and up to £20.25. It was seven spins for me with a bonus prize of £31.50.
The margaritas were looking mighty tasty. I debated whether or not to make one. I took a few more spins and couldn't shake the desire. A margarita would go very nicely with some chips and salsa. I headed off to the kitchen….

After a long day of work and no play, I needed a release. I let the wind blow in my face on the Bingo Boat.
We have awesome members at Latest Bingo Bonuses. One of them made a post to check our Bingo Boat accounts for BBs. Luckily I had some waiting for me. 90 Ball Bingo here I come. In entered the room with the highest jackpot. The jackpot is won if you can call a full house within 35 calls. Rub a lamp is what I say but I had my hope up high!
Cards were on sale for 10p each. I paid for 15 and got 10 free. Things were already looking good for me. I waited for the game to begin and took note of the prizes, £4.14 for one line, £6.55 for two and £10.34 for the house. The jackpot was up to £636!
18 calls in and I’ve got two cards with 2 to go for one line. On to two lines. I wasn’t even close for a while and it took some time for a player to bingo on the double line. I noticed that I had two cards with 1 to go. I was waiting on 7 and 43 for two lines. Ugh! No luck. On to the house. After two calls I was waiting on number 46. The tension was building and I’m on edge waiting for my number. Then BAM, there’s the graphic displaying the winners. I am in it but with a win of 71p as a consolation prize for one to go.
Every little bit helps and I thank the members for the heads up when it comes to BBs. Good luck at Bingo Boat.

I have eaten more candy in the past couple of weeks than I have in my entire life! The chocolate in the UK is yummy. Wispa, Crunchy, Aero and anything Cadbury have been a steady part of my diet. I never thought I’d say it but I’ve had enough. On second thought, there’s always room for the Chocolate Factory slot game at Bingo Castle.
If you haven’t signed up for Bingo Castle by now I’m not sure what you’re waiting for. Latest Bingo Bonuses is offering a $25 No Deposit Bingo Bonus for new players. Once you’re in, Bingo Castle gives you cash, yes cash, each month. I tend to let the cash build up and have a great time on them.
So, Chocolate Factory is a 9 line slot game with a delicious theme. Cupcakes, ice cream, chocolate covered strawberries and lolly pops sweeten up the reels. There’s a progressive jackpot tied to this slot game and it was juicy at £4,169. Five chocolate ice cream bars awards the jackpot. I could only hope.
Three chocolate shakes will launch a bonus round. Select your favorite flavor and win cash. Three or more chocolate lips triggers 8 free spins. My first spin awarded me free spins. During my free spins I hit the bonus round. You can imagine my excitement. Well, that was short lived since I walked away with less than £1. All that and I couldn’t even win £1. I found that the reels pay much better than the bonus round and free spins so I spun away until my free cash ran out.
There’s always next month at Bingo Castle.
Don’t you just love spam emails? Oh they’re my favorite especially when you open one that appears to come from a contact. This actually happened to me. I opened an email that appeared to be from a friend. The subject line was odd and it was a link to an online diet center. I hardly ever read emails unless they stand out in some way or they are sent by my favorite online bingo sites. Gina Bingo is top on my watch list.
I received an email regarding credit I had sitting in my account. Right away hit the 90 ball bingo room. The cards were buy 10 get 2 free. Whoo hoo I was off to a great start. I took 20 cards for a total of £2. The prize was £9.72 for the full house. The game is flying by as usual. No side games for me. Before I know it, I’m playing for two lines. I needed one number. This number always seems to hold things up for me. I can never ever ever bingo on the year I was born. I was waiting for them to call 81 for what felt like ages. No such luck.
In the blink of an eye we’re on to the full house. Call 68 and it seems that I’m playing against myself. I had two cards both in need of number 45. I’m thinking “c’mon” “c’mon” but no cigar. The £9.72 was split amongst multiple players. Their share had to be down to almost nothing.
I hung out for a while to catch another few games but it was not my lucky day. I haven’t given up on my girl Gina though. She’s a long way off from being thrown in the spam pit.

Felines are amazingly smart little creatures. I’ve had several in my life and I’ve loved them all. Their “I’ll do what I want” attitude is so unique and rivals no other pet that I’ve had. If they’re waiting at the door when you come home, they look at you as if they just happened to be standing there. Of course they’re not waiting for you. Get real!
My feline friends have invaded the online bingo cloud at Bingo9. Glamorous kitties scattered on a slot game is purrrrrrrrfect in my book. The adorable cats scatter the reels in Cats and Cash. Cats and Cash is a 15 line slot game with a minimum bet of one coin per line. Two bonus games are featured.
Among the glamorous cats are symbols of gifts, stacks of cash, gold bars and tantalizing jewelry and these kitties aren’t sharing. I’m a member of Zoom Bingo so my user name and password are interchangeable at Bingo9 including my balance. I was not eligible for the trial bonus because of my account at Zoom.
Anyway, I started off with a small bankroll of about £15 or so. I timed my play because I’ve experienced the wrath of these cats before. My bankroll didn’t last more than 3 minutes at 30P per spin. My best spin was three gold bars on 3 pay lines. I definitely got a taste of that “I don’t care” attitude. I get enough of it from the two cats at home. Now it’s confirmed, there’s no escape. Even an online gambling excursion won’t give you a break.
Aside from these stingy cats, I still felt like I was on cloud 9 at Bingo9. The great bingo rooms make up for it.

Don’t you just love those days when you wake up on the right side of the bed? Things just seem to be going well right from the start. No one is in the bathroom, the coffee is made and the sun is shining. I knew today was going to be a good day.
Bingo Cabin emailed me to let me know that I had bingo bucks in my account and I’d better use them. You don’t have to tell me twice. How could I forget about bingo bucks? I had several free spins left on the slots from when I initially signed up. I got those out of the way immediately on the Enchanted Garden slot game. There’re frogs on it, go figure. Unfortunately, the frogs hopped away with my luck.
I hit the newbie room for a game of 75 ball bingo. Cards were going for $0.10 each so I took 20. I was welcomed by the chat host immediately. There were 12 in the room including me and a game was already in progress. Bingo Cabin satisfies my desire for immediate gratification. The time between games is only 30 seconds. Some sites have you waiting up to 4 minutes. That drives me crazy because I am so impatient.
I was watching my cards closely as the game started. Bingo goes quick even though it’s 75 balls. If I didn’t know better, I would’ve thought it was 90 ball bingo judging by the pace. This is my kind of place. I had some hot cards and before I knew it, my winning ball 50 was called. I split the pot with a fellow roomie. Good times!
Get up on the right side of the bed and start your day at Bingo Cabin.

Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC and The Rolling Stones are classics. They have contributed to our development as true creatures of rock. With “You Shook Me All Night Long” blasting in my ear, I logged into Wonder Bingo. The walls start shaking, earth was quaking!
I made a bee line to the Creatures of Rock slot game. Nothing else would due. Creatures of Rock is a 9 line slot with an edge. Featuring a hard rock theme, Creatures of Rock allows you to sit back, relax and live like a rock star! Among the symbols are rockers, hotel signs and big energy drinks or it could be beer. I’m not sure on that one. As you spin the reels you are encouraged to rock on with words such as “Spin My Reels”, “Rock Your Socks Off”, “It Started with a Spin” and “Rock Me Amadeus”. I went safe with 45p per spin.
This slot game features an awesome Amp Smash bonus game. The bands rocks out as you select an amp to reveal a multiplier. Keep making your selections until an amp blows up. I found that this bonus round comes very often and can really pay out. There were several bonus rounds where I moon walked away with nothing. At one point I selected multipliers of 100x, 10x and 5x. I was kicking myself for not wagering more but then again I may not have been given such high multipliers.
Wonder Bingo is calling all Creatures of Rock! Get shook all night long!

I have been dying to get my hands on it! I finally got to meet the queen of bingo herself. You know her well, the queen at JackpotJoy!
I read about a recent win on the Deal Or No Deal slot game. My first thought was “I wish I could play that slot”. Then I realized I can! Still in the UK, I had all that JackpotJoy has to offer at my fingertips. Once again, I totally took over Froggy’s account and had £20 to play with. I checked out the site, which is awesome I might add, before heading to the slots.
Deal Or No Deal is based off of the television show that was also a hit in the states. There are three bonus games which are tough to get. I mean I couldn’t get the bonus to save my life but I was on a mission. There’s the Mystery Bonus Round, the Deal Or No Deal Bonus and a random offer from the banker. He’ll randomly make you an offer on a winning spin before you know what you’ve hit.
I was so excited just checking things out and all of a sudden I see 1, then 2 then 3 Mystery Bonus symbols on the reels. I was just wiggling in my chair with excitement. You are prompted to pick boxes among rows of them. The first one I chose said “Win All”! I walked away with £20 doubling my money as a result.
Of course I had to check out bingo. I played a few games of 90 ball and couldn’t get over how cute the site was. Froggy insisted that I play her free game of the day. She spins a wheel for free spins on a slot called Tiki Temple. No free spins today but you can bet I will be making her log in again for tomorrow.
I have to tell you that I almost want to move to the UK just to join JackpotJoy.
