Online bingo sites offer great fun today and it’s not only difficult to choose between casinos but also one bingo sites can have so many interesting games. During the summer time after a day spent at the beach or by a river or a lake for bingo lovers one of the best ways to spend an evening is playing online bingo games. I am one of them and I decided to spend my evening playing at Cyber Bingo; the site where I had the most success so far.
The ticket prices were very high; even $1 in the Pack and Line room so I started playing at the Classic bingo room. The first pattern was a Martini so it wasn’t a bad beginning at although I wish I had one by my side, to relieve the whole pain of losing in that game. The prize was $125 but I had just two cards with two numbers to go. In the next two games I had much more success; I didn’t win anything close to $100 but finally I had some wins. In the first of these two games I got $12.50 and in the next one $10.58. With a few more good games where I won some small amounts I got to $75 dollars.
After that I really wanted to try other bingo games. I chose “Tutti Frutti 4”. It’s a super funny and interesting game, but the winnings were not very big, so even with some good combinations I’d get only a dollar or two. I was surprised when I realized that I was lucky enough to keep my balance over $70. Then, I played “Tutti Frutti 5” but it was very difficult to trigger any winning combinations so I quit playing it very soon.
Finally, after a few weeks I had a great day playing bingo games. I was very excited about it and I can’t wait for my next bingo evening. And until then, I’ll celebrate with a glass of Martini!

Wouldn’t it be fun to be a pirate? How cool would it be to have a treasure map and search for gold and jewels? I guess I should face the fact that I’m never going to be a treasure hunter on the open seas but it was definitely time to go Trolling for Treasure at 123 Bingo.
I started out at $2.25 per spin. I needed 3 logo symbols to go trolling for treasure. With only 9 lines, there are so many different ways I thought I should have won. I’ve been spoiled by these 30 and 50 line slot games out there.
I hadn’t planned to play for long. If my luck was bad I was going straight for bingo. I hit a couple of winning combinations for a win of $22. I got 3 scatters several times for $11.25 each time. I was getting some decent wins but no bonus. My balance was staying fairly even and something needed to happen.
Things started to go south and my balance was dropping fast. I got to the point that every spin was a dud. It was time to call it a day on the slots.
I think I was better off as a pirate in my mind. If there were any treasures to be had, I wasn’t able to find them.

I’ve really developed quite an affection for 75 ball bingo. It was never a variation of bingo that I enjoyed in the land based bingo halls. It wasn’t until I began playing bingo online that I became a fan. The patterns are fun and make for a really fun game especially at New Bingo Billy.
I entered the Quarters room and bought 24 cards. The pattern was ‘Window Frame”. I thought that this should be pretty simple but you never know. After all, it was almost a coverall. There were a decent number of players in the room so it could be tough. The prize was up over $40 and the players were nearing 50.
It was early on in the game and I was keeping up a good pace on my cards. We were 35 calls out and I had 6tg and improving. That would definitely be a nice prize.
I knew it was coming down to the wire. Someone had to be close and I just hoped it was me. I needed #1 and #26. Then two more cards went green and I got nervous.
The second the excitement started to build, someone called. One lucky winner was $46 richer. Of course I stayed to see if my luck would change but it wasn’t my day to be a big bingo winner.

With a really suggestive name, Dream Bingo gives me hope that something special is going to happen whenever I play. The site design fits the story perfectly with room names such as: Day Dreamer, Maple Meadow, Sunset Strip, Velvet Vault and Cash Castle. Only the first two rooms were open so I had no other choice than to play there. The first one I enter was the Day Dreamer or Early Bird bingo room which already had around 20 players. It was a 90-ball bingo room and I thought I might have good chances to win but as the game progressed I realized that it would be a really tough venture. In the end, I had a couple of tickets with two numbers to go.
With 16 strips on my side and three chances to win (one line, two lines and Full House), I was really bitterly disappointed not to be able to win, not even once. I decided to change the room, so I entered a 75-ball bingo room or so–called Maple Meadow room. In the first game the pattern was Blackout and even though there were fewer players than in the previous room, I couldn’t win it. For the next game I bought 50 tickets and I finally managed to win something. It wasn’t much; I won a consolation prize of $1.80.
My bingo bad luck has obviously continued and I decided not to play anymore. For a short time I was considering to play some slots but in the end I decided to go back to sleep and have a nice dream of a bingo win.

Some people are lucky enough to have “vibes” on a slot game. They just get a “feeling” and they’re right. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people. I’m the kind of person that loses repeatedly on a slot and goes back for more. True to form, I did it once more with Living Large at Bingo Flash.
Living Large is a Parlay slot that I have terrible luck on. I had hoped today would be different. I didn't have a huge bankroll to work with. I have to say that the bonuses on this slot are pretty bad. Why did I choose it again?
Anyway, 2 free spins symbols came up over and over but no bonus. The line pays were not much better. I remained at the minimum $0.45 bet and was not about to change it. In all the times I’ve played Living Large, I’ve never hit the Big Wheeler Bonus. You must get two of the Big Wheeler Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. During all the spins I took, I never saw the symbol even once.
The big payout symbol is the plane and 5 of those pay 2,000 credits. I can’t say that I saw many of those either. Why do I do this to myself? I was broke in no time.
I’m determined to hit something on Living Large. I’ll be back again for more.

Even since I was a kid, I was interested in playing bingo; my grandmother used to play it often so I always followed her around with bingo cards. Many years have passed by and I discovered online bingo and I got as interested as I was before. It is really amazing what they have to offer today so it’s always difficult to choose the right bingo site. Beside some new bingo sites that I like to discover, one of the places where I play regularly is Bingo Avatar.
The first bingo room I entered was “Nickels” or “Party Gossip Room”. I just woke up and I was still sleepy and as a consequence I made a beginner’s mistake; there were only two players, I didn’t pay any attention to it and I bought the maximum number of tickets. So, when the game started the prize money was just $1.72 and I paid for the bingo cards $2.40, which made me feel like a fool. I started panicking, too, because the number of cards with one number to go was raising and with 12 cards with just one more to go, I still couldn’t hit Bingo; a few numbers later I finally got it. If there were a bit more players I doubt I would win.
I kept playing; I wasn’t even close to winning so I switched to slots. I started with “Gorgeous George” and I was doing pretty fine. I managed to recover my balance back to over $10 with some really nice wins. I even triggered the Bonus Round when I got two scatters on reels 1 and 5 which brought me $3.15. I decided to stop there and continue playing when I feel a bit more lucky.

Gamblers must be one of the most superstitious kinds of people on earth. We have it all from lucky toothbrushes, lucky underwear, lucky dice and even lucky gestures as we play. One of the most common is the lucky number. I can’t recall a number that has ever consistently brought me luck but there’s a strong reputation surrounding the number 7. Lucky 7’s was the slot game on the menu for me at 123 Bingo.
I went with the 5 line version at $1.25 per spin. The big hit is the red 7’s. Three red 7’s on the 5th payline brings 1,000 credits. I hit 3 blue bars for $10 and it was decent start. I was managing to keep my balance fairly even for a while but then it started to drop. I guess 7 is just not my lucky number.
I switched over to my old friend, Karat Crazy. Again it was the 5 line version. The payout was much better. Me and jewels always got along really well. I hit jewels on the two paylines for $21.25. The biggie is the 24Karat symbol for 1,000 coins on the 5th payline. I hit 3 gold 7’s for 125 credits.
I guess 7 is my lucky number as long as it’s laced in gold.

The Number 7 has got me under the gamblers magical spell……….
Ok, I have to admit there is something very magical about the number 7. Whenever I am panning new slots to play whether online or land based it seems as if I stop dead in my tracks whenever i see a 7’s themed slot. And Parlay Entertainment Super 7’s Slot is no exception to that rule. It gets me every time and draws me straight to it. Another thing that catches my eye are things that shine and there is definitely a metallic looking sheen to these 7’s that screams come and play me!
I decided to try out Bingo Vega with the $10 Free Trial offer. Yes, I know we can’t cash in on a Free Trial and though many players get bummed about that fact I at least get the option to try before I buy!
I have to say I was impressed with this site and part of the excitement was Elvis splashed across their homepage to celebrate in a great celebration to honor him all month long with pretty cool promos.
Because I was starting with a pretty small bankroll I was very conservative betting only .25 per spin at a .05 coin value. What I love about this Slot is every time the Super 7 logo appears on a winning payline it doubles my win and if two appear it quadruples the prize. The jumping symbols after a spin keep the blood flowing with that momentary excitement as it will randomly scroll down on a reel or scroll up giving me an extra chance of winning after it has spun.
The stars must have been lined up just right for me because everything I have a penchant for happened. My favorite color is red, my favorite number is 7 and winning in triplicate put the cherry on the cake. Yep, I hit 3 shiny red 7’s three times on the reels. For a bet that was only .25 per spin, winning $10 was a pretty awesome return.
Now if I could of only seen in triplicate three Super 7’s symbols I would of hit the Jackpot for 2,000 credits. Even better if I upped my bet to $5.00, ahh I must admit if that happened I wouldn’t be here right now I would be on a tropical vacation drinking a super 7 cocktail! Did I say “a” ok, ok, I will be honest here, several super 7 cocktails!!

When I was a kid, my favorite aunt, the one who always brought me loads of candies and chocolates , was called Gina. So when I first saw an online bingo site dubbed Gina Bingo I thought this must be my lucky place. I deposited just €20 so I expected a few good games just so I could prolong my playtime. I decided to play in two rooms - Club 90 where the ticket price was €0.11 and Fun 75 with the ticket price of €0.01. The first pattern I got was an Up arrow pattern , but I didn’t win it even though there weren’t many players in the room.
In the Club 90 room I played just two games but only because I lost both of them and I didn’t want to spend all my money there. I was really surprised because, from my experience, I thought that my chances were good when there is just around 10 players. This time I was proved wrong which made me very sad.
I went to the other room then; it was a Fun 75-ball bingo room and unfortunately my bad luck continued. One of the patterns I played was Diagonal Corners and that was a game where I was very close to a win. After only a few games I had only €5 on my account and I decided to try some slots. I knew I wouldn’t have much luck but I stayed positive. I remember a few months ago, I had some luck playing “Coins of Rome” so I hoped for the same again. Unexpectedly, when I hit five golden cups and got €25, I was amazed. I was waiting for the Free Spins but I couldn’t trigger them so I stopped playing at €18.43.
At the end this was nice and I didn’t lose much; I like to believe that it was aunt Gina who brought me good luck once again.

Bob’s Bingo is a really nice site and I like the group of sites it belongs to. It had four rooms available today: 90-ball bingo Big Ben room, 80-ball London Hall, 75-ball bingo Buckingham Palace and 30-ball speed room. There were many players so I didn’t really know which one to enter since I haven’t had much luck lately; I was sure I wouldn’t win anything but nevertheless, I entered a 75-ball bingo room where the ticket price was £0.05. I bought 96 cards and the patterns required were a letter I and Full House.
In the first game I wasn’t really close to a win having a few cards with two number to go. In the next few games the same thing happened and very soon I was down to £15. I had already felt tired at that moment but the adrenalin kept me lingering in the game. I decided to change the rooms so I entered Speed bingo 30 City Hall room. I bought the maximum number of cards - 150 and I managed to win £0.27 being one of the 1 tg winners. Even though there were only 10 players there unlike other rooms where there were many more I still had no luck.
Then, I tried a new slot “Dragon Fire”, but it was too little too late. Even though both Wild and Scatter appeared often and I had some good wins I still couldn’t recover my balance. I guess my strike of bad luck continues and now I can only hope that it will suddenly change and I will get some great wins under my belt.

There are bingo sites that we love for different reasons. Since I play at some amazing sites in the UK, I tend to forget about all the Parlay sites. Since I’ve been in the USA, I have come back to some old favorites and I remembered why I love Vic’s Bingo. I’m usually very lucky there. Let’s see if luck was on my side today.
I went into the $1 room. I don’t typically spend that much per bingo card but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. I can drop at least $100 on slots and get a fraction of the play time. I took a chance and bought 24 cards with an additional 12 free. I was going in with a nice amount of cards. The jackpot was way up there at $20,008.60 and the regular prize was $36.60 for the “Palm Tree” pattern.
We passed the 29 call mark so the jackpot was long gone. I had just 3tg though so I was doing alright. It stopped there. It took forever to get a card down to 2. I was waiting for #39 and #70. Come on! Stop calling all the numbers on my blank cards! Oh I was getting so mad. I was stuck at 2tg then suddenly a bunch of cards went green and two went yellow.
I couldn’t pull it off this time. I hung around for a few more games but I couldn’t win. Lady Luck must’ve went for a bathroom break.

Bingo Bucks are a wonderful thing. They become even more wonderful when the bingo site allows you to withdraw winnings derived from bingo bucks. As long as you’re a depositor at Bingo Knights you can win real cash. I was just given a free scratch card so I was off to Bingo Knights to play a game or two.
I decided to go a little cheap and buy tickets in the nickel room which was a 75 ball bingo room. The deal was buy 10 get 5 free. I bought the max number of cards and was heading into the game with 68 bingo cards. The pattern was “Dog”. I love bingo and I love dogs so it was perfect. Yes, I’m so cheesy.
Anyway, the prize was just over $7. They made the last call and I was on my way. The game began and I noticed the “Claim” button. I didn’t like it. I like to see a big red “Bingo” button. I was so focused on that, I didn’t realize I had 2tg on two cards. Then, 1tg but someone called before I could even get excited.
So, once again I was entering the next game with 68 cards. This time the pattern was “Picnic”. I love a romantic picnic so this game was all mine. So, I hoped. The prize was a little better at just over $9. This was going to be a tough pattern. I was nowhere after quite a few calls. With all the cards I had, I could only hope that everyone was doing this badly. There was a lot of area to cover with this pattern so it was pretty likely that it would take some time.
I got to 3tg on a couple of cards then 2tg. I didn’t have that winning feeling but I held out for my numbers. I had 3 cards with 1tg but once again I didn’t get to hit that claim button.
The thing about bingo bucks is that you have to win in order to have anything to cash out. Who knew?

Finally, it was a bit cooler today and I could enjoy the weather more than usual. Before I made any plans for the day I decided to play some bingo. I couldn’t really make up my mind about should I try a new one or visit a familiar bingo site. I’d never had a chance to play at Bingo Empire before so I gladly went there, made a $25 deposit hoping for at least a couple of good games. Then, after I took some time to deliberate I entered Club 90 hall where the ticket prices were €0.06.
The game was in progress so I started playing a 4-reel mini slot; it was a very bad start of my gaming day, since I lost a few Euros in several spins. Luckily, the bingo game was about to start so I stopped playing the slot and I bought 48 tickets. I like playing in these rooms because I have three chances to win in one game. In the first game, the closest I got to a win that required covering two lines was when I had 2 cards with one number to go. It didn’t look good but I kept playing. In one of the games even though I had 7 cards with one number to cover one line, I couldn’t win it.
The worst happened in what turned out to be my last game, when I played with 96 cards; I had 11 cards with one number to go for covering one line and still nothing good happened. For two and three lines I wasn’t even close to winning with just a couple of cards with two numbers to go.
I felt so exhausted afterwards and I needed to stop and go out for a while. Still, even after this disastrous experience, I was pretty sure I’ll keep playing bingo. And I did - as soon as I got home!

I’m not sure if an angel would approve online bingo but I surely hope that my angel is looking over my shoulder this time; especially since I’m playing at Bingo Angles. I like the site and it uses my favorite bingo software so I’m very excited about another bingo experience.
I entered City Bingo room, bought 48 tickets for $2.40. The first pattern was Crazy City Angels and the prize was $5.58 and it didn’t start off well for me; I had just one card with one number to go. The same happened again in the next game when I needed N15 to cover a airplane pattern. I didn’t know the reason but the card price for the next bingo game was $0.25 instead of $0.05. I decided to buy 30 cards and I needed I16 to cover a letter Y pattern. I started panicking because I didn’t want to lose all my money so easily.
I needed to take a break so I went out and I breathed in some fresh air to clear my head. After 15 minutes, full of hope, I started playing again. In the first game I played after the break, I won. I played with 48 cards, the pattern was a Broken Frame and I won $5.78. Maybe it was because the weather was really hot, but I really got tired easily so I decided to play one more game and then call it a day. In the last game the pattern was a Crazy Snake and the prize was $8.61; I needed just five numbers to cover the pattern and I covered it within the next six numbers. I was very excited because I had never won so easily.
It was a great ending so I’m very happy; Bingo Angels has become one of the sites that I would surely go back to enjoy other bingo games.

Black & White Gold is one of my favorite Parlay slot games. It’s a traditional slot with 3 reels and 5 paylines. I played it at Bingo Hall.
On my first spin, the reel just continuously spun. I waited a minute or so before closing the game to reload it. I set the bet to $0.25 and played the max coins. I hit gold 7’s quite a few times and my balance climbed up over $200. I was having luck these days on classic slots. Maybe I should stick to these in the land based casinos. I always go for the video slots with all the bells and whistles but sometimes a good old fashioned slot is the way to go.
I wasn’t about to raise my bet and ruin the flow of winning. The jackpot is three gold bars on the fifth payline. The only aspect that’s missing from Black & White Gold is a simple that boosts your wins like Three Times the Riches. My adrenaline kicks into high gear when I play that slot game.
Anyway, I wasn’t winning anything big. I had my luck in the beginning with all those gold 7’s and red bars left and right. It was time to move along and keep what I had won.
Fingers crossed that my luck remains with these classic slot games. I will definitely be testing this theory in the land based casinos.

I feel really lucky when I find something I like so as a result, I hold on for dear life. 2 4 1 Bingo is a perfect example. After playing their last week I had to return for a few quick games of 75 ball bingo.
I entered the August Contest Room. Cards were going for $0.25 each so I bought the max. I had to wait a bit for the game to begin so I looked around the room. There never seems to be much time to smell the roses when you’re in the midst of bingo action. Anyway, the pattern was “Bar” with a jackpot of $776.39. The standard prize was up over $100 and climbing. The last call for bingo cards was made, ticket sales closed and the count down to the game began.
I thought the pattern was so boring compared to some of the others out there. I got down to 2tg and got a little excited until bingo was called and it wasn’t by me. I played several more games and got down to my last few bucks.
Now on my last game I really wanted to win. The pattern was pretty cool as “Crazy Airplane”. It took a while but I got down to 3tg. I had fewer cards this time so I just knew someone was going to call before me.
Why is it that I’m always right when it comes to things going wrong?

After having a very difficult week I wasn’t really in good mood to do anything, but I had some time off and I made a decision to try and play some bingo games. So, when I deposited $15 at Bingo Vega I didn’t even seek to win anything, just expecting a few games to run by me without noticing their results. I entered a Milky Way room where the ticket prices were $0.25 and I realized that I can play three games if I buy 20 cards, which would cost me $5 for each game.
The first two games went by just as I suspected. The patterns were “Elvis Music Note” and “Cover All”; I wasn’t even close to a win having 5 and 6 cards respectively with three numbers to go at the end of the games. With my last $5 I bought another 60 cards (40 plus 20 I got for free) and the pattern was “Cover All”. Against all odds, I won that game fairly easily which brought me $20. Of course, I kept playing and I lost in the next three games and I was down to $5 again. In those games the pattern was “Bugs” and out of nowhere I won it; this time $18.65.
Since I couldn’t lose my money by playing bingo I decided to play a bingo slot “Trolling for Treasure”. I started losing money but then I got 4 scatters and earned $11.25 in that spin, it brought my balance to $25.40. This slot turned out to be lucky for me as I hit the scatters and bonus rounds quite often. During the game I lost my urge to lose money so I gave up and stopped playing with $25.04 on my account.
This turned out to be a great gaming experience, maybe because I wasn’t interested in winning at all - on the contrary! So, I finished playing with $10 more and I will surely be back to Bingo Vega to try my luck again.

I’ve been playing bingo regularly for several months and, of course, there are some sites that I visit over and over again. Also, there are bingo sites that I go back to even though I don’t have much success or luck playing there, but they have a really good atmosphere and give me hope that I might win big once. One of those sites is Rogers Bingo; when I sum up everything, I lost more than I earned there but I always have some small wins which keep me in play longer.
This time I started playing with €35 and my first choice was 75-ball bingo, Border/Full Card room. Three players are needed for the game to start and I was the third one; before the game started there were four players in total. I knew that the game prizes won’t be high but I stayed there for a few games. In the first one, I needed B3 to cover Border pattern and then I needed just I3 to cover Full Card. In the next game I also didn’t have much luck needing just a few numbers to cover the patterns. Before I left to another room, I decided to stay there for one more game. I was lucky enough to cover both patterns which brought me €4.68. It wasn’t much but any win’s better than no win.
Then I looked for the rooms that have more players but it turned out to be a bad decision; I didn’t have any luck so after a few unsuccessful games I decided to buy some tickets for bingo tournaments. They weren’t to start soon so I turned to some work I had to do for my boss and hoped that by the time I’m done, I’d be pleasantly surprised by a win or two.

There is always an exception…..
We know what we like and what we don’t like but every once and a while there is an exception to the rule. I typically don’t care too much for three reel slots but every once in a while one comes along that I take a real liken to. One of the earliest slots I ever played was in land based casino and now that I found out online to play I couldn’t be more thrilled…
123 Bingo offers many games and when I like to stray from the bingo rooms I head over to the slots and play one of my Parlay favorites Three Times the Riches. It is a three reel slot with 5 paylines and what is super is when the Three Times the Riches logo appears on a winning payline it pays three times more and if two appear it is 3 x 3 for nine times the winning line.
If you are on a budget this slot is really a nice option because coin values start at a mere .05 with a total bet of only .25. I started out at the lowest bet and landed a very pretty sight for sore eyes! Two logos and a green 7 with a bar through it for a sweet $22.50 win. Now that may not seem like a lot of dough but for .25 a spin it was quite a nice profit especially when you are on a tight budget.
I took my win and was determined not to give it back so I logged off and when I return I might just try my luck again or opt to play bingo instead. Ahhh glory be to the gaming choices we have!

Sometimes you just have that lucky feeling. As I logged into 2-4-1 Bingo, I knew it was my day!
It was the last day of July so I entered the July’s Contest Room. I bought the max cards at $0.25 each. Luckily they had a BOGOF special going so I ended up with 48 free bingo cards. The prize was approaching $20 and the pattern was Fireworks. This was a new 75 ball bingo pattern for me.
I have been a little luckier these days so I was excited for the game to get underway. My only complaint about some of these bingo sites is that the wait between games is just way too long.
I had that lucky feeling as they made the last call for bingo cards. The game began and my eyes locked onto my cards. The prize had crept up to $33.69. Early on I was down to 4tg then 3tg on two different cards. I was up against 14 other players but I stuck with that positive feeling. Two cards went green, I needed #45/#65 and #1/#60.
Ugh I got down to 1tg on one card but no dice. I bought another round of 48 tickets and got 48 free. This time it was the First Aid pattern with a prize of $35.61. I hoped my name was on that cash but this would be a fast game. All we needed was 5 numbers to bingo. 2tg came very quickly. I needed 1tg on 4 cards but none of my numbers were called. Three or four players had to split the prize.
Sometimes you just have that lucky feeling and you’re dead wrong.
