There are many things that can drive you crazy if repeated. “Mommy” is one of them. Broken records are another. “I told you so” is yet another. How about Pull Tabs? Let’s just say there were a few issues on my last visit to Bingo Knights.
I looked up the Pull Tabs since it had been forever since I played those. What’s up with the Pull Tabs? The only one they had was Alien Encounter. I pulled a few and won $0.50 here and there. Then I bought 10 and selected “Pull All”. It never stopped. The same card repeated over and over and over again. It was a $0.50 win where the man is zapped by an alien laser. The sound is extremely annoying but I had to see how long this would go on. The wins continued to tally. I knew I wouldn’t be able to the wins and the mistake would be caught but the wins were up to $64.50 and climbing. I wondered how long this could go on.
I decided to let it go to $80 and press a button or close the window to make it stop. It was hilarious. This thing was stuck. I couldn’t take it anymore and I hit the 5x button. Needless to say the wins were gone and they are having a big time glitch with their Pull Tabs over at Bingo Knights. The tabs just pull endlessly and rack up wins. Wouldn’t that be something if you got to keep them? He he he. I know I’m bad but seriously! They have one Pull Tab and it's broken.
Stick to the bingo instead of being stuck in a loop on the Pull Tabs.

When we really enjoy something we keep right on doing it, right? This was the case when I played bingo at Bingo Angels. I saw 75 ball bingo in a new light and really had a good time playing. Of course I had to go back and get my fix.
I had a few minutes until the game began so I chatted a bit with my roomies after I purchased my cards. Cards were $0.25 each and I bought 24. Unfortunately, there weren’t any specials going. The pattern was the Holy Grail with an amazing prize of $3.30! I wasn’t very impressed but I was playing with Bonus Bucks and couldn’t complain. Another thing that I missed was the ability to play slots within the bingo room. A new window launches so you can play. Maybe it’s a matter of preference but I like to have my slots cozy in the room with me.
Once the game started, I paid no attention to chat. I was totally focused on the game. I got such a good vibe in that room with the friendly chat hosts and players. The background was covered in fall flowers and made the mood just right.
My numbers were being called left and right. We were up to nearly 45 calls and I had several cards with 1 to go. This was a tough pattern but I just had a feeling. Those 3 bucks was mine! Sure enough call 52, N42, comes out and I was the sole winner. No splitting hairs and sharing.
I enjoyed my game even more than I did the last time and you know what that means. I’ll be back to Bingo Angels again and again.

I Keep Coming Back For More…
I am not sure if anyone else does this but there are some slots that I play, never win and keep going back for more! When ever I play at 123 Bingo I simply can’t resist Treasure Island Slots. I have played most of the slots and have had my share of winning but there is one that keeps haunting me time and time again….
I tell myself every single time do NOT play Kings Castle slot. So what do I do, run straight to it like a magnet. I simply can’t get a good hit on this game. Sure enough I start spinning the reels but because my luck is never quite too good on this slot I bet the bare minimum with a one cent coin value worth .25 per spin.
Getting the bonus round on this slot is not an easy task for me. But part of the love for this slot is the when the bonus round is triggered it brings you to the wheel. The wheel spins and determines the amount of free spins awarded and the multiplier on each spin.
I thought I was going to really have a good bonus round because not only did I get the required three bonus symbols, I landed four of them. I have seen on some slots the more bonus symbols that appear the better the bonus round will pay.
Is it possible, can I finally hit an amazing round of free spins? The wheel gave me 8 games with a 2x’s multiplier so already I can tell the four symbols didn’t mean a darn thing. I spun the wheel 8 times and I am embarrassed to say how much I even won! I ended up with a $10 win.
I really need to move on but the graphics and that wheel get me every single time. Should I try, try, try again until I hit it big? Maybe if I raise my bet I will hit something huge!

It’s been a while since I spent some time with Parlay slot games. I was sipping my Diet Pepsi and thinking back to all the slots I love. One of the first to spark a memory was Karat Crazy. I loved that slot. I had played it many times at Bingo Ville. Now, if I could just remember my password.
It was like riding a bike and I knew exactly where to find my Karat Crazy. I set my wager for $1.25 per spin on the quarter version. Now, all I had to do what get three 24Karat symbols. How hard could that be?
Immediately, two golden sevens hit the reels. I held my breath for the third. Instead I got a red jewel. I took another spins and two blue jewels hit the reels and the third was just under the line. You know how irritating that is. It’s happened to all of us. The reels were dazzled with the carrot symbol for the next few spins. In case you are unfamiliar, the carrot is the lowest paying symbol. Suddenly, I hit 2 24Karat symbols and a golden seven. Nothing.
The highest paying spin I managed to get was three blue jewels for $18.75. My bankroll hovered around what I began with for the longest time.
I enjoyed playing so much that I played until my balance and my Diet Pepsi was gone.

When you fly into the United States of America and see the big buildings and get your first glimpse of the Statue of Liberty, you would never dream in a million years that your bingo will be restricted. There are some sites that accept US players but they are far and in between. One of those great sites is 123 Bingo.
I blew the dust of my trusty login info for 123 Bingo and signed in. To my surprise I had some cash to play in the Treasure Island casino. I looked through the slot games and chose Deal or Steal. Was this a Deal or No Deal rip off? I had to find out.
Deal or Steal is a 20 line slot game with 2 bonus games. If you can unlock the vault you’ll win a whopping 12,000 coins. In the Deal or Steal bonus you are made an offer by the banker and must decide your own fate. It seemed like a similar version of Deal or No Deal to me except the graphics are completely different. They look nothing like that old what’s it called again.
Anyway, I set my bet to $0.40 per spin. I went low because I had a few bucks to play with. What are the odds of landing a bonus round with a tiny bankroll? I had several spins and wasn’t doing too well. I spent a longer time checking out Treasure Island than I did spinning. No bonus rounds to brag about, just a quick session with nothing to show for it. I will definitely be playing the games available in this section of 123 Bingo.
There still is liberty and justice for bingo players at 123 Bingo.

Calling all angels! Bingo Angels that is.
I registered quickly and simply. I only had to wait about 5 minutes for a confirmation email. You are assigned a user name which I generally don’t like. I can never remember the combination of numbers and letters.
After a very short delay, I logged in and hit up the room with the highest prize which was 75 ball bingo. Ugh! This was going to be a longgggg game. The pattern was “L” and we were playing for $67.11. After 20 calls, I still had 6 to go. I hoped I had a pretty good chance because I bought 30 cards. Then a funny thing happened. I started to become engaged in this game. I can’t stand 75 ball bingo as a rule but I was starting to have a good time. My cards started changing colors with 3 to go and 2 to go. We were approaching 40 calls and I had a couple of cards with 1 to go.
Chat was starting to get excited because a number of the players were getting close. I realized that I had to give 75 ball bingo more of a chance. All I needed to do was win this game and I might be hooked. I was waiting for either number 56 or number 8. It was bound to come out. It was the key to making me a fan of this game. Call 44 was B6 and I lost the game. Just like that I was pulled back into reality.
I can’t say I won’t play again becasue I really enjoyed the energy in the rooms at Bingo Angels. I do enjoy the various patterns that go with 75 ball bingo especially with holidays coming up. Halloween patterns are fun and the Christmas designs really pep up my mood.
You may be happy to know that we are all angels at Bingo Angels.

Being home in the USA for a visit, I have access to all the things I love. I can get the greatest hotdogs on earth. I can get the best pizza in existence. Basically, it’s the food that I crave when I’m away. The only thing I can’t get is my gambling fix. I’m very limited and that includes bingo. No matter where I am I can count on Bingo Flash.
I had cash to play with and hit the slots. I had a rivalry with lips on this slot so I chose it for old times sake. Three Times the Riches was calling my name. I chose the 5 line version and wagered $1.25 per spin. As I spun I couldn’t help but think of all the luck lips used to have on this slot game. I had to have a successful session.
The blue 7’s pay pretty well so when I saw one hit the reels, then two I held my breath for the third. Nothing landed on a pay line on the last reel. That was very very very irritating. I kept spinning and needed to step up my game. I was not having any luck. So, I flipped on Youtube and played Eye of the Tiger. I needed something to pump me up. I started laughing at what I was doing.
The reels were no kinder to me. It was a day of two’s. Two symbols hit the reels but where was the third? The last straw was two Three Times the Riches symbols. I couldn’t win so I cut my session short.
When you’re hot, you’re hot and when you’re cold, you’re cold no matter where you are in the world.

Double the pleasure and fun….
I love to play Video Poker and every time I go to the land casino I have to play, especially when my bankroll is low. Video Poker gives me more play time and better odds to win than slots.
123 Bingo has Double Bonus Poker and is among one of my favorites. The bonus is double the credits for four aces and four of a kind on 2, 3 and 4.
I wagered $1.25 a hand with the jackpot being the Royal Flush worth 4,000 credits. I am dealt 5 cards with the option to hold the cards I want to keep and then dealt the draw cards. I was terribly teased with one hand when i was dealt four to a straight flush and couldn’t draw the card I needed.
One thing I could never understand is how the straight flush is only worth 250 credits. It is the second most difficult hand to get and is right under the royal flush, yet the value of the hand is really low. I think who ever decided what the hands were valued at made a bad mistake with the straight flush.
My luck was not going so well with a straight being the best hand out of 20 for a win of $5.00. I know, the luck I was having was pathetic. I was pleading to the poker gods “please give me four aces, i won’t even be greedy and ask for the royal”!
I will just have to settle for double time doing my laundry instead. Maybe I can call for the laundry gods to wash, dry and fold them.

My husband and I got into an argument that was probably my fault but we’ll just pretend I didn’t say that. To make it up to him I made his favorite dinner, lasagna. After I slaved in the kitchen for a while I figured that it was time for some “Me” time. I chose to spend it a Gina Bingo.
It was my lucky day with a BOGOF card special. The line came and went but the double line was nerve wracking! I needed 31 to be called. I was on edge with butterflies in my stomach hoping it would be next. Of course someone bingo’d before I had the chance. On to the full house and guess what! Number 31 was the first number out. Like many times before, I had visions of throwing my laptop through a window. The full house went on for a while. We were beyond 60 calls and I was waiting for 38. It was lit up in red and my eyes were glued to it. As soon as I saw it covered I was going to scream.
Just as the suspense was at its peak, I was beat again. This was one of the most intense games I have had online in a while. The balls were just not in my court but this is why I love the game. If I’m not livid at some point, I’m not playing a good game. The prizes weren’t amazing but it was a fun game. I always enjoy playing at Gina Bingo.
I got in another game or two but I was stopped by the oven timer.

There’s quite a few ways to use the word “flash”. Back in a flash, flash back, flash bulbs but there’s nothing that sounds as good as Bingo Flash.
I entered the Quarters room where the prize was the highest. The card special running was buy 6, get 3 free. I purchased 24 cards. One of the things that bugs me about Bingo Flash is the wait between games.
My eyes were on the prize and I ended up playing 75 ball bingo where it was the highest. We were playing for the “B” pattern worth $72.28. It was so slow I thought I was going to fall asleep. 24 calls in and I had 4 to go. All I could do was hope the game would end quickly and put me out of my misery. It’s not good to not care whether you win or lose. I got down to two numbers but the minute I started paying real attention, someone won. I flew out of there and straight to the 90 ball room. I didn’t care what the prize was. I just wanted to enjoy my game.
Cards were $0.25 and the max I could purchase was 42 cards. I got 7 free and the game began. I hung out in there for a while but the prizes were tiny. My bankroll was down in a flash.
I had a feeling that I should have stuck to the slots. The Parlay slots are awesome and that’s usually where you’ll find me spinning at the speed of light.

Hollywood signifies glitz and glamor. I think of talent and big dreams. I also think of the red carpet. I’m not sure I envy those stars though. Lights flashing in my face and being scrutinized by the crowd doesn’t make for a fun night out. I’d rather live the life of a star at Bingo Hollywood. Roll out the red carpet cause I’m comin’.
I took the No Deposit Bonus from LatestBingoBonuses.com. It was credited immediately which started things off right. I really felt like I was getting the star treatment. I entered the Silver Screen 90 ball bingo room. I bought 4 strips totaling 24 cards. The prizes were £2.89 for one line, £4.33 for 2 lines and £7.22 for the house. This was the only room available to play in if using the no deposit bonus but the cards were cheap at 3p each.
I wish I had a close call to tell you about but I didn’t until the bitter end. 66 calls on the full house and I’m sure just about everyone had one number to go. I still had bonus money left so there was no time for crying. I went for a double feature but unfortunately, I failed at the box office. I can’t win them all.
No need to audition. There’s a part waiting for you at Bingo Hollywood!

We were told something was coming. I expected something unique, something grand, and something spectacular! It wasn’t a bird. It wasn’t a plane. It was the Red or Black slot game exclusive to Jackpotjoy!
In celebration of this great news, I was given £25 to give it a try. Here’s how Red or Black works. You must choose a wager before you begin. Each is tied to a separate progressive jackpot amount. It’s nice because you are eligible for a shot at the jackpot no matter your wager. You have the opportunity to multiply all your winnings by up to ten times if you land enough red or black colored symbols on the reels. A multiplier is shown at the bottom of the slot measuring red to black. All you have to do is choose red or black before each spin.
3 fortune cookie symbols triggers the Fortune Cookie Bonus Game where you'll get the chance to open up to 20 cash filled cookies. Choose red or black and the corresponding wheel will spin and reveal the number of cookies you will open. One of them may be the progressive jackpot. I got the bonus game once and chose black. I was allowed to open 12 cookies. I was on edge as I opened each one. This is very stressful knowing the progressive is in the mix. I chose several and finally one of them was the progressive jackpot. The only problem was it was red not black so I didn’t get to keep it. Oh it made me physically sick.
I gravitated to black quite a bit. I’m not sure why but maybe there’s something in my subconscious against red.
So, red or black?

You’re once, twice, three times a lady?
I was in my car the other day with the oldies but goodies on the radio when i heard that classic romantic song by Lionel Richie. Instead of drifting off and daydreaming about some smoking hot guy singing that to me I had other thoughts on my mind. I instantly thought about Three Times The Riches Slot. I try not to play it too often because I don’t want to bore everyone with the same slots but I figured it would be safe today since it has been awhile!
I went over to Break the Bank Bingo because last time I played the slot there I didn’t do so bad. Now I do have a theory on playing these slots and so far it seems to be working for me.
If you can collect a large enough bankroll to make larger wagers by all means do it! I have played the minimum wager of five cents for a total of a quarter a spin and got no where.
Seems to really get the most bang for your buck, higher wagering is the only way to go. I always start out small and increase my bets as I go along.
I was up to 50 cents max bet $2.50 per spin and after only a few short spins I got the glorious blue 7’s and the triple symbol. I ended up winning $90 on that single spin. I was really hoping to get two symbols with the blue 7 for 9x’s the win but i won’t complain and will take what I got.
Now that I have fulfilled my yearning for Three Times The Riches Slot maybe just maybe I will have just as much luck when it comes my dream guy!
