Some themes are simply way too cliché and overdone. These include the Egyptians and luck or Irish themed slots. Where there’s a will there’s a way and they’ll keep right on coming so I’ve never shied away from cliché especially when it comes to gambling. After all, I’ve had some of my greatest wins on these types of games. This week I spent some time at Bingo Anywhere.
I went to the bingo rooms first but all the games had already started so I scanned the slots section. The slots are categorized and under “Free Spins” I spotted Lucky Clover, which I had not played in a long time, and thought that’s it! Lucky Clover is expensive to play though. The minimum bet is £1.25. I was a little uneasy with not being able to start at a lower wager but I got off to a slow start with little wins here and there.
Suddenly, I hit 4 heart symbols for £6.25 followed by several winning combinations including wilds for £5.25. Even with frequent wins I couldn’t quite build up my balance. When I thought about it later, the wins I had were pretty pathetic. Seriously, I was kidding myself thinking that £5 or £6 was good. Then I laughed at how quickly I lost all my bingo bucks. I had a good time risk free. How could I complain?
So much for luck of the Irish. I wonder how Treasures of Egypt is paying out…

It’s Raining Men Hallelujah….
Usually it is raining cats and dogs but on the radio in my car it was raining men. That goes out to all the single ladies amen! Every time that song comes on in a club it brings the house down as the women stampede to the dance floor. It is a little early to head out to a club so instead I did my own rain dance………
One of my favorite bingo sites is Bingo Hall for the awesome promos and the great customer service. I had five bingo bucks in my player’s account and with a stroke of good luck maybe just maybe I could quadruple my bankroll.
Rainforest Riches Slot was the closest thing I was going to get to raining men. I figure if I can my hands on one of the red, green or blue frogs and plant a big wet kiss oh him he might turn into the frog prince.
I know I am really going out on a limb here because I have never had too much success when I played this slot. Since it is a new year and all my luck may have gone in a new direction and Rainforest Riches is the ideal slot to put it to the test!
I wagered the minimum bet of 15 cents per spin and let the reels spin singing “it’s raining men, every specimen….tall, blonde, dark and lean”! The frogs steered clear of me as I couldn’t even get two of them on a payline must less the three frogs for a 10,000 Jackpot.
Down to a measly $1.13 in my bank I hit one red frog and two single bars for a whopping .30, my biggest win of the day.
Drastic times call for drastic measures and there is only one thing left to do. I’ll have to go down to the pond and find myself a big green frog and lay a smooch on the real deal!

I have so many accounts at the many different bingo sites and I never remember which may have some bingo bucks or cash in them. I got lucky at Bingo Castle.
I checked my account and luckily I had some free cash in my account. I looked at the slots but I really felt like some bingo. There were no players in the 80 ball room so I went into the 90 ball room. I prefer it anyway. Cards were 10p each and I bought 24. Prizes were £4.95 for one line, £7.43 for two lines and £12.38 for the Full House. I wasn’t doing so hot. The game breezed by and it was down to the Full House. After 59 calls I still had 3tg. I wasn’t happy with that so I hung around for another game.
I got myself 24 more tickets and waited the minute and a half for my revenge. I sat there and thought about how pathetic it was to have nearly 60 calls out and still need 3 numbers. The game started and I had this competitive feeling. There weren’t many players in the room so this time I had to be a winner. The prizes were a bit higher too. The line went to the same player that won the double line in the last game. I wasn’t very positive at that point.
Then the double line went to the guy who won the line prize in the first game. I looked at my cards and realized that all 24 of them were garbage. After 60 calls I had a few cards with 2tg and guess what. There was the same guy again winning the house.
I was done and out of cash anyway. I didn’t leave the Bingo Castle as a queen but more like the joker.

Some people wake up on the wrong side of the bed but me, I woke up with a sweet tooth. To kill the urge a donut or a big piece of cake I went to another temptation, Sun Bingo. I wanted something a little different than my usual so I went with a slot game that I haven’t given much attention to, Ray Gunn Versus Galex E. Greed.
Ray Gunn is a 25 line slot game with an outer space theme. I had 100 credits to play with so hopefully this would be a good day. I was down 40 credits pretty quickly. I could see little blue hands at the controls and I just wanted to slap them away. I was down to 50 and I wasn’t going to waste a single penny more on this slot.
The bonus is hard to get on Zuma but if I’m lucky enough to get it, it’s so worth it. I always see so many players pleading for three frogs in chat. The frog symbol triggers the bonus. Zuma is a popular slot game but I began to wonder if I was better off with a slice of cake because this game raises my blood pressure. Suddenly, I hit 4 matching symbols with a 3x multiplier for 24.50. I was back up over the 60 credit mark. Now all I needed was a bonus.
I was getting one frog then two but no bonus. It didn’t take me long to play my balance down to zero. I’m thinking I should have had that donut. At least it wouldn’t cost nearly as much.

Diamonds are forever….
Give a girl a diamond and she’s your forever or so they say. I know my stuff when it comes to these little beauties and the 4 C’s, Color, Cut, Carat and Clarity. I can spot a sparkler a mile away. One diamond in the ruff that is a gem of a site is Bingo Flash.
I love a bingo site that rewards its players. I was checking my emails and found a scratch card from Bingo Flash. I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to get busy on those Parlay slots. Parlay software is a favorite of mine and I chose none other than the Diamond Surprise slot. I went with the 1 line version and bet low at 15 cents a spin. I only had 10 bucks to play with and I wanted to make it last.
After a few spins I realized that I wasn’t getting anywhere so I raised my bet to 75 cents a spin. Hopefully this would make things a little more exciting. I was eyeing the pays and those 2, 3 and 5 timer diamonds. In Diamond Surprise the diamond symbols are all wild. You can win up to 15,000 coins. I should have left my bet exactly where it was because 75 cents per spin was way too much for a tiny balance like what I had.
I hit a cherry here and there but it was hardly enough to keep me afloat. My bankroll took a nose dive and I was left with my nose pressed against my screen gazing at those sparkling diamonds.
I think I’ll stick to the real thing. Now, I just need someone to slip a nice rock on my finger. A girl can dream can’t she?

When you find a bingo site that you enjoy you should hold on for dear life. I have found this in XBingo. The themes within the site and the rooms are interesting along with fantastic games. The color choices are awesome too. They say purple indicates luxury, wealth and sophistication.
I was exploring the games available and there was still an active Valentine’s Day promotion. I was prompted to find the golden heart then I would know what true love is. All these hearts were floating up and I had to click on them until I found the golden one. Each time I clicked on a heart it turned gray and crumbled. Finally I found one that turned to gold and I won myself an extra £1.
It was just after 10am and many of the bingo rooms were closed. I found a room with low prizes and bought 6 strips (38 cards). One line was worth £1.80. It felt like forever because after 22 calls I still had 2tg and no one had called. Just after I began to pay close attention, someone bingo’d.
On to two lines for £2.70 and I suppose it was because there were only 18 players but this was a long game. I looked at one of my cards and I had 1tg for the double line and 2tg for the house. I won the double line and only needed #47 for the house. I thought for sure it was mine but I wasn’t too cocky because I have been in this situation plenty of times and the number was never called. Sure enough, the full house prize went to someone else.
I was a bit richer but I was certainly no closer a life of luxury on this bingo excursion.

Dragons are a classic being in folklore from various cultures around the world. Combined with a bit of fortune, I’ve found the perfect pairing at Heart Games. It’s called Fortuna the Dragon.
Fortuna the Dragon is a 25 line slot game with an adorable little green dragon side kick with you on your way. The music accompanying this slot game is very soothing and it is highly suggested that you turn it off. It sounds like the delicate strumming of a harp and as entertaining as this slot game is, I could have closed my eyes and taken a nap.
I set my bet to £1.25 and was awarded 5 free spins immediately. After a spin you could be surprised with 5 bonus spins. There are a few different features involved including multipliers and flaming wilds. I’ve found that the best feature was the multiplier but on this bonus I won approximately £10. I had one spin result in just over a £40 win because of a 7x multiplier. The max you can get is 10x and how sweet that could be.
Scatter symbols also payout but I’ve not seen more than 2 yet. That paid £2.50 at my wager. Ugh, what can I say? I was hoping for some fortunes to come my way but it just didn’t happen. 100 credits did give me quite a bit of play time but the wins were small and basically kept me afloat but not ahead.
See what fortunes await you at Heart Games. Say hi to Fortuna the Dragon for me.

Virtual love is no longer as taboo as it was back in the day. It’s become the norm to meet people online and develop a meaningful friendship. I don’t see anything wrong with it because as a gambler I have many cyber love affairs and the latest is Virtual Bingo.
I signed up and received a confirmation immediately which comes in handy because you need the account id in order to sign in. The $20 Free Trial was lovingly placed in my account the moment I logged in. I went straight for the bingo and had 3 rooms available to me. I chose the City Room where the cards were 25 cents each. I bought 12 so I didn’t spend all my bingo bucks in one place. There were no BOGOF specials going on so it was just me and my 12 cards. The game was 75 ball bingo and the pattern was Divingboard with a prize pool of $25.58. I have never seen this pattern before but it had me dreaming of warm summer days by the pool sipping on a tropical cocktail.
My eye was drawn to the “Bingo” button. I could only hope that I would have the chance to use it. The game began and my cards were filling up. I am thankful for auto dabbing because the pattern was all a blur.
There weren’t many other players in the rooms so I was excited about the prospect of winning and hitting the slots. A few cards went pink, then green and yellow. All I needed was #1 or #47 to end this game. With 2 cards so close maybe it was my turn to see red. I didn’t wait long before another player won.
I glanced at the slots and I must play them. They have such a good selection of slots from Parlay and BetOnSoft. The 3-D slots such as Tycoon, Arrival, Gold Digger and Rock Star were calling my name. It’s been ages since I’ve been able to play slot games other than Parlay at bingo sites.
I wasn’t victorious this time but that hasn’t diminished my love for Virtual Bingo one bit. I still have a few bucks to spend for a chance to explore my true love, the slots.

As a cat lover, I will play just about any slot that has a cat theme. I was so thrilled to find one of my land based favorites, Miss Kitty, at Mecca Bingo.
Miss Kitty is a 50 slot game by Aristocrat. I didn’t want to bet 50p so I went up to £1. If I went any higher I would have to spend £2.50 per spin and I wasn’t going to do that, at least not yet. Let’s see if this kitty will purr first. Three full moons trigger the free spins bonus. The pink kitty is the wild symbol and she locks in place when she hits the reels during the bonus. There were quite a few locked in but all I ended up winning was £15. Not a bad start but I love locking wilds so I couldn’t wait for another shot. We live for the bonus anyway don’t we?
After my bonus I couldn’t win a thing. I think Missy Kitty thought she gave me enough with a £15 bonus round. I tend to disagree. I was losing fast so I debated over increasing my bet. I know that’s usually not smart if you’re not winning but I thought the change in bet might make something happen. There are stacked goldfish that would look mighty pretty covering my screen.
My session was short and sweet and I couldn’t make anything happen. I still love Miss Kitty but kitties are finicky little things aren’t they!

It’s that time of year again. The month of love is upon us. I couldn’t think of a better place to indulge in one of my first loves, bingo, than Heart Games.
It has been ages since I played “In it for the Monet”. This is a 15 line slot game with an artistic flair. I set my wager to 75p per spin and began to spin away. I think it was my 5th spin when I triggered the bonus. I was presented with three rows of paintings and prompted to make my selections. I kept in mind that my choices were predetermined so it took the pressure off. I ended up collecting 6 free spins with a 1x multiplier. I won an unimpressive £3.50. Back to spinning.
My bankroll was dwindling fast. I was beginning to get worried. I took a look at the pay table to see what I needed to wish for. 5 wilds pay 10,000 coins so I would wish for that. Next in line was a Mona Lisa-esque painting and 5 symbols pays 5,000 coins. Miss Mona Lisa would also due very nicely.
I was not feeling the love at Heart Games. It was becoming more apparent that this slot game wasn’t going to pay out. I figured what the heck and raised my bet to £1.50. Maybe In it for the Monet doesn’t like the 75p bet. Maybe Frederic and Francois felt I should pay more for their art, who knows. All I know is that I immediately triggered another bonus and landed 13 free spins at 5x. This had to be good! Mona Lisa was good to me and I ended the free spins with a £99 win!
My heart was in my throat at Heart Games but eventually I felt that warm and fuzzy feeling.
