I have been on a horror movie binge over the last few weeks. I recently watched a movie called Drag Me to Hell. It was very creepy and involved a young girl and a curse from a gypsy woman. The girl tries everything to rid herself of this curse and save her soul. She seeks the assistance of a fortune teller. Some parts of it are actually pretty funny. It’s a mixture a comedy and horror in my opinion. Don’t worry. I won’t spoil it for you. I was reminded of this movie as I played the Fortune Teller slot game at Bingo9.
Fortune Teller has some freaky music. The crystal ball symbol is the wild and the black cat is the Scatter. Three or more bonus symbols trigger the bonus. It’s a tarot reading. You are prompted to choose three cards. Your prize is based on your matches. I was spinning at £1 and the reels really weren’t paying. I was getting 3 “10” symbols on the reels for £1 or getting bonus rounds worth £5. I can’t even tell you how many times I got 2 Scatter symbols worth £2. I couldn’t get any more than that. I had almost had enough with 50p and 25p there.
I was ready to give it all up and I hit one more bonus. It was almost becoming a chore to go through with the bonus and pick card after card because the prize didn’t seem worth it. I chose my first card and it was the Lovers. The second was also the Lovers. Finally, my last selection was Death. Yikes! That’s a little scary but it gave me an extra 2,000 coins. I’ll take it.
See that movie and play this slot and Bingo9. What will your fortune be?

It’s a Howling Halloween Bingo
It is that time of year for ghosts, goblins and witches with Halloween around the corner. It starts Autumn off with series of celebrations to follow with Thanksgiving and Christmas. I went all out this year with outside decorating and it looks scary with a coffin, electric chair and the devil himself haunting the yard.
I couldn’t think of a more festive place to play bingo to keep me in the ghoulish mood then Bingo Fest. They have a frightful Halloween Bingo room complete with black bats and spooky pumpkins.
What is going to be trick or treat time for me here as I played? I started out playing with 71 highly Halloween bingo players wondering the same thing. I purchased 12 out of 46 cards at .35 each for a total of $4.19. I am still trying to understand how I saved a penny on total but, hey a penny is a penny!
It was a progressive jackpot game worth $1000 for a coverall that would begin to dwindle in value once there was no bingo in the allotted number of balls called.
The background on the cards was so cute with creepy crawlers along the boarder. I played four bingo games and one was as bad as the next. The closest I ever came was 2 away and that didn’t even get my heart racing. No one won the jackpot and a player called bingo winning a $35 prize.
This was definitely no treat and a big trick on me. Hmmm I wonder if the devil had something to do with it!

I love a good party, a lively fiesta with cocktails included. Throw in some bingo and make it a Jackpot Fiesta?
Registration was simple. I had my bonus and was ready to check out the site. I went directly to the bingo rooms. There were many familiar aspects.The highest prize was in the 80 ball Pinnacle Room. I bought 15 cards and got 30 free. Amazingly the cards were buy one, get two free. It’s a rare day when I come across an offer like that. I was using bonus bucks so I was only allowed to purchase a maximum of 15 cards.
I had a minute or so to kill so I played the King of Slots. The minimum was £1 per spin. My bonus had dwindled down to £3. I would’ve blown it all but the game began. In all, I think I won 25p. We were playing for the “I” pattern with a prize of £22.14 then on to the full house for £35.42. The callers voice is the same at all Cozy sites isn't it?
Within 35 calls, 3 winners split the pot for the pattern. I was down to 2 to go on two separate cards. There was a progressive jackpot of £700 if someone could bingo within 30 calls. That went right out the window quickly. By call 68 quite a few players called and had to split the pot. That’s the worst. I don’t like to share my bingo wins. I suppose my loser status was for the best. I wouldn’t have been able to cash out a single penny anyway.
If you’re a member of one Cozy Games site, you’re a member of them all. Why not make it Jackpot Fiesta?

There’s always something exciting at Wonder Bingo…
I played it safe and joined the Plentiful Winners room. The deal with that is just like standard bingo with one major difference. Once a winner is called, the game continues until 20% or more of the players in the room are winners. I thought that I was bound to win something.
The game was 90 ball bingo and we were playing for a full house only. This was a unique twist on 90 ball bingo for me. I also noticed a new feature right away. We can now have three bingo rooms open at the same time and toggle between them using the snazzy new tabs at the top of the page.
It was a bit of a long game since we were playing for a full house. For some unknown reason my mind wandered. What was I thinking about? Well, things like how thirsty I was, what to make for dinner, the talk show on TV was ridiculous among others.
I saw that I was 2 away and I snapped back into the game. I was only playing in one room. Maybe if I had utilized the new feature I would’ve been a bit more focused. A girl has a lot on her mind some days.
Someone bingo’d but there was still a chance for me. I watched as more and more players won. I was out of luck. I stayed to play a few more games. They were back to normal with the line, double line and full house. Luck just wasn’t on my side this day.

There are so many temptations in life. Chocolate, smoking, cocktails and of course gambling are just a few. I happen to enjoy all those examples. When I’m in the mood to really indulge, I play at Jackpotjoy Bingo.
Playing at Jackpotjoy is one of my guilty pleasures. The bingo and slots are always amazing. I think the daily free games are a great feature for depositing players. One of the daily games has the potential for players to win free cash to play Tiki Temple. I haven’t been lucky enough to win any yet but I still like to play the slot when I have the chance, even if it’s just a few spins.
Tiki Temple has 20 paylines and different levels for the Progressive Jackpot prize. It all depends on your bet. I selected 5p and played £1 per spin. It’s especially exciting because you can trigger a bonus game or free spins. I prefer the free spins because it seems to be a bit more lucrative for me.
Right away I hit wilds and watermelon symbols. There were a couple of other winning combinations mixed in for £16.85. I was off to a great start. If only I could land the bonus round while I was up. The Progressive was just over 70 grand. My goodness, it would be a very good day if I could get my hands on that.
Anyway, I tend to day dream when I’m not doing well and I was day dreaming the entire time I played Tiki Temple. No free spins and no bonus game for me. Oh well. There’s always bingo.
I think it’s time to move on to another indulgence. I could really use a cocktail after that!

Strike the Pose There’s Nothing to it…..Vogue!
Oh my it is lights, camera action at Bingo Cams! I have been very curious to see this site for the unique webcam feature they have. But unfortunately the US is banned from even viewing the site. So what is the first thing I do when I came to the UK? That’s right I headed straight to Bingo Cams!
I was completely caught up in the chat host who is on live cam in the bingo room. One thousand thoughts are going through my mind as I am wondering how she keeps the dialogue up, how she has to primp before hand and everything else in between.
It was quite refreshing to put face to the chat host and to be honest I would really like to see more bingo sites offer this creative feature. I didn’t put up my web cam because I had my hair slung in a ponytail and still had pillow wrinkles on my cheeks!
I was in the 90 ball bingo room and played 35 cards with the free signup bonus money I received after joining. The Progressive Jackpot was worth a whooping 17,204.05 pounds and I had visions of great things I would do with that kind of cash if I won. The closest I came to a bingo was one to go on a single bingo card and had barely even realized it I got so caught up on the chat host.
This site is really great fun and even though I lost the entertainment value was worth every single pound!

Little Miss Froggy has made a new friend. Her name is Little Miss Bingo…
I snatched up the No Deposit Bonus and got down to business immediately. There is a room for depositors only that had a progressive jackpot of £6500. It looks like I may need to make a deposit in the near future because Little Miss Bingo has nice jackpots. That would be a nice chunk of change if I were lucky enough to win it.
I entered the local 90 ball bingo room with a progressive jackpot of £750.13. A game was in progress so I pre-purchased 15 cards at 10p for the next game. There was a BOGOF special so I got 15 cards free. It was my lucky day so I thought. With Cozy software sites players can use their BBs to play slots as well. Of course I needed something to do as I waited for my game to begin. I’m not one to sit idle. Hot Habanero was looking good. Within a minute I had blown through much of my BBs. I was relieved when the bingo started.
I did absolutely horribly. I continued to play Hot Habanero and got nowhere and oh the bingo was even worse. I wasn’t even close. The line and double line went to lucky players which didn’t include me. I was two away from the full house which might as well have been miles away.
I was in the mood for a pity party. I sat there and stared at the screen. I had spent all my bingo bucks and I was feeling pathetic. All was not lost. I suddenly remembered the strawberry ice cream in the freezer.
Little Miss Bingo and I will hang out again. It wasn’t her fault that I had a bad bingo day but she is definitely not getting any of my ice cream!

Sometimes you need a unique experience. Something to change up your routine and spice things up. Whenever I feel the need for a new and fresh experience I play bingo at Bingo Cams. It feels like the first time each time I enter the rooms.
I enjoy the unique experience at Bingo Cams. I always choose a room that has a live chat host. It’s so much fun to be able to hear them chatting and answering questions. Cards were 5p each. I purchased 25 and got 6 bonus cards.
The game began and continued very quickly. The chat host was Claire and she was extremely patient. Players have the opportunity to ask questions and they tend to use the bingo rooms as live support. Someone got a little snippy with Claire and she was still very kind and tried to assist this player. She gained major points from me on that.
There is no requirement to be a technology guru in order to play at Bingo Cams. I think some might have this impression because cams are involved. It’s very straight forward and user friendly and there’s no pressure or requirement to use a cam. I can’t stress that enough.
The line prize came and went and the same for the double line. I was one number away from the double line prize. When this happens you can hear a heart beating. I love that there’re sound effects for the feeling of anticipation. I didn’t know whether to watch my game or pay attention to the chat host. This live bingo thing is great and time flies when you’re having fun. I couldn’t have been further away from the full house. I was four numbers away when someone bingo’d and I wasn’t even mad. I played all those cards for £1.25 and was thoroughly entertained.
You can’t put a price on the lively uniqueness you’ll experience at Bingo Cams.

When it’s your time, it’s your time. It was certainly my time at Bingo Flash.
I have avoided Keno for a very long time because it used to bore me to death. I’ve played it and never saw the attraction that many players have to it. Something lured me in and I gave it another try. I did not select my own numbers and went with 10 auto generated numbers. After a few games I won $90 by matching 5 numbers with a $5 bet. I now see why I never liked Keno. I never won!
In all the excitement I suddenly felt the desire to play another newly found favorite, 75 Ball Bingo. The pattern was lemonade. It required us to fill in 14 of the 25 numbers on a card. This was going to be a tough one. I was thinking about my Keno win then realized that I needed to focus on the game at hand. After only 30 calls I had defeated the lemonade pattern for a prize of $52.15.
I hung around and played a couple more games. I won a minimum of $50 on those too. I don’t even know what the patterns were. All I know is that I won big at Bingo Flash. By the time I got through I had won about $150 playing Bingo and $90 playing Keno. It was an amazing day.
It just might be your time. See you at Bingo Flash.

I’ll Take One to Go…….
I am back for a visit in the UK and having a great time. The holiday rental we are staying at has a nice café downstairs and every morning I have to run there to get my morning coffee. Forgetting some of the lingo differences in culture I asked a “one cup of coffee to go”. The server gave a grin and I knew I said it wrong! It’s not “to go” it’s “take away”.
I headed over to Melina Bingo after a very busy day to unwind and play a few games of bingo. I love free cards and this game was purchase 12 bingo cards and receive 4 free.
I had an added bonus of entertainment reading the chat! There was some big time flirting going on between 2 players that were getting pretty steamy. A lot of hugs and kisses and sweet pet names being called back and forth.
Before I realized it I needed one to go on two cards and decided to focus on the caller and not the love birds in chat.
The pattern was Crazy Cartwheel and I needed lucky 7 or 17 to declare bingo. The bingo cash prize was worth $20.39, a sweet pot where I could double my bankroll. Whenever I need a bingo on more then one card I always think this it, I am going to win! Oh how wrong I was again.
It was a “one to go day starting with my coffee and ending with a player taking away my chances to win!

Friends are very influential in our lives. Many times their opinions matter most to us. I was on the fence about Jalapeno Racers at Jackpotjoy Bingo until I spoke to a friend. He raved about his love for this slot game and insisted it’s his favorite at this site. I had a bit of luck at first but I wasn’t quite sure that it was my favorite. I decided to go back and give it another chance.
I set my bet at £1.60er spin. I’ve been betting a little higher these days instead of messing around with tiny wagers. Hopefully the higher bet will get me bigger wins than my typical safe bets. I must admit that I am a huge fan of the 4 screens. Jalapeno Racers allows you to play for slots at once. It has 80 lines but it’s so worth it.
The music that plays during spins takes me right to a beach in Mexico sipping a strawberry Margarita or a Coco Loco. I drank nothing but Coco Locos in Mexico. They were a delicious coconut slushy rum cocktail served in a coconut. Ah it was yummy. Okay, back to the slot. I took about 3 spins then hit a series of the purple hogs for £21. I always wish for a bonus round when I’m up. It would just boost you up even more. My eyes were glued as I watched for the Race Symbol. In the meantime, I hit another nice win with those hogs for £14.
I had some smaller wins here but negative on that bonus. I had increased my bankroll so I stopped there. I hated to do it because that slot was hot, hot, hot! I’ve got to be smart sometimes.
Listen to this friend. Go play Jalapeno Racers at Jackpotjoy. Go! Go now!
