After playing in the Bejeweled Bingo room last week I’ve been hooked on the games. I have downloaded Bejeweled on my iPhone and have played it every free moment I get. Why not continue on with the theme and get in a few spins on Bejeweled Hypercash at Sun Bingo!
I must say that this game is a bit more mindless than moving the colored jewels around yourself. Right away I got 6 winning combinations and gems were being zapped all over the screen. I thought I was in for a big win but that whole exciting display turned out to be worth £3. The hypercubes were appearing frequently and on my next spin there was an explosion of color and lightening that was worth £7!
At this point I continued to break even. If you’ve never played this game, the hypercubes are glowing gems that zap the others around it making way for groupings of gems. Gems of the same color forming a minimum of 6 to a group disappear and add to your winning combinations. The more hypercubes and groups of 6 matching gems you have, the better.
My experience with this game has been good in the past so I was betting £2 per spin. I was steadily breaking even so I didn’t see the need to reduce my wager. This slot game has the same soothing quality as the classic Bejeweled game. I’ve just never seen a big win on it before but I’m so ready to.
If you haven’t played this game, you must. After at least an hour of play my bankroll was still intact. I’d say that’s pretty lucky.

Some things bring us comfort for many different reasons. I’ve felt like Wonder Bingo was the place for me since the day I registered. They are like mashed potatoes and gravy on a wintery day.
I entered a 90 ball room and bought my tickets. I bought the max of 48 and waited for the game to begin. I love how I’m always greeted at Wonder Bingo. Without fail, the chat host always says hello and good luck. It gives you a good feeling to start a game out that way.
I wanted a nice little win but I just like the atmosphere at Wonder Bingo. I took my spin on the Wonder Wheel and won 50p. Each consecutive day that you log in, you get an additional spin on the wheel. I’ve seen up to £75 up for grabs. Unfortunately, I never been anywhere near it.
As for my game the prizes were fairly good at £20 for one line, £30 for two lines and £50 for the house. The game was going like a train. Before I could even think about it someone had called for the line prize. As for two lines I quickly got down to one number but as soon as that heart began to beat for number 28 someone called. There wasn’t a whole lot of suspense.
I got down to numbers 20 and 21 on a card. Now what are the odds of sequential numbers like that coming out? I figured that it wasn’t going to happen and just like that the game was over. I was a loser and even number 28 never was called.
I said goodbye to the friendly roomies and happily went on my merry way.

Celebrity Big Brother UK is my ultimate guilty pleasure right now. I never miss an episode. You can imagine my excitement when I found out about Big Brother Bingo. As a brand new housemate, I had to explore my surroundings.
They advertise a £20 no deposit bonus but it’s a little more complicated than that. Registration is simple and once complete you are eligible to climb the stairs of swag. There are bonus amounts on each step with a max of £5. Newbies can climb the stair up to 4 times over the course of 4 days. If you are lucky enough to land on the £5 step each time you get a total of £20 deposit free. Well, I won 10p and there wasn’t much I could do with that. The rooms are limited until you make a deposit so I was only able to access a 75 ball room. The pattern was “Tennis Racket”.
With my 10p I was able to get 3 tickets at 3p per card. I was dying to check it out so I thought, what the heck. Okay, the caller is the same voice on announcer Big Brother! That was awesome! He adds little Big Brother terminology into the calls too and I loved it! Whew! Needless to say I didn’t win but I can’t wait to climb the stairs again.
Before I left I voted for Gareth to win it all!

Finding a No Deposit Bonus in your account is a wonderful surprise especially when it’s from Jackpotjoy Bingo. I was more than ecstatic to find a £25 freebie in my account. It was my lucky day in more ways than one.
I was just checking out the bingo games and considering making a deposit when I saw a balance of £25. I went straight to the Bejeweled Bingo room. What’s unique about Bejeweled Bingo is that the room looks just like the classic version of the game. In between games, players are also challenged to play the classic Bejeweled game for free tickets, The higher your score the more tickets you’ll win.
My first game was great. The numbers are called really fast which I don’t mind because I’m not worried about dabbing anyway. I won the Full House of £54.74 and couldn’t be happier. I played Bejeweled and won a free ticket to the next game. At 25p per ticket I was paying £9 to get the max of 36 tickets.
The next game had an even bigger Full House prize and I wasn’t expecting to win a second time. I was shocked that I won even once with nearly 200 roomies. I was nowhere for the line or double line. By the time the Full House came around I found myself down to 2 numbers then down to 1 number. I was thinking that someone was going to call any second. I closed my eyes and the game went silent for just a moment. When I opened my eyes I saw my name on the screen as the winner of the £174.57 prize! I was required to play through my bingo bonus 3 times. I made that playthrough with no problem.
I think I’m giving the Queen of Bingo a run for her money.

After a loss on slots or any other casino games I like to wind down with a few games of bingo. This was the case after I played 50 Lions at Mecca Bingo. Bingo seemed like a good idea to kick back and relax.
So I’ve been on a bit of a Mecca Bingo kick. After my loss on 50 Lions, I went over to the bingo section. There were some nice prizes in the Deal or No Deal room. It was over £300 for the full house. There were just over 100 roomies. I prefer smaller groups of players but that’s just not going to happen at a giant like Mecca.
I purchased 17 cards at 50p each and waited for the game to begin. Chat is so busy at Mecca. I can’t follow what’s going on in there. It disappears as you try to read it. I was one away for the one line prize. I just missed it. Then we were on to two lines. I just missed that prize too. I think it was just over £140 or so and it slipped right through my fingers.
I might as well cut to the chase and tell you that I lost the full house prize too. The player won something like £349. The unique thing about the Deal or No Deal room is that the full house winner has a box containing additional prize money. The banker offers the player a certain amount for their box. All roomies vote whether it’s a deal or no deal. Taking our votes into consideration, the player makes their deal. In this case he made a deal and tacked on another £24 or so to his prize.
So much for winding down, I was on edge with those kinds of prizes at stake.

I miss all the slot games that I played in the land based casinos back home in the US. One favorite was 50 Lions by Aristocrat. When I found it at Mecca Bingo I was ecstatic to say the least. My best friend in the whole world turned me on to it and I’ve been a fan ever since. Here’s to her.
I had £25 to play with. It was up to gods of luck with this tiny bankroll. I had the option to spin at 50p but I had to go with £1 for a chance at hitting something big. The highlight is the free spins or should I say the stacked lions? Well, they’re both sinfully tempting. Three flowers launch a round of free spins. There a diamond symbol that adds a multiplier to wins. That is stacked during free spins. No such luck, I didn’t get em.
The lion symbols are always stacked and they pay big when they fill the screen. Throw in a diamond symbol or two and the payout is amazing. Almost every spin I took was a loser. I held my breath each time the flowers hit the reels. I was down to my last 80p when in what seemed like slow motion, a flower landed on reel 1. Nothing on reel 2 then another on reel 3. I could’ve screamed. I sat there and stared at the screen for a while and at my pathetic 80p.
She was always better in the luck department than me when it came to 50 Lions. I think I’ll let her have this slot game all to herself from now on.

That’s what friends are for…….
You can have one 100 friends but if you don’t have one true friend it is not like having any at all. This bingo blog is dedicated to our best friends. It’s when they believed in us when we didn’t believe in ourselves. They’re the one who stood by us through it all. And when we are weak they gave us strength. Right when you’re about to lose all faith, it was our best friend that stood us back on our feet……….
I couldn’t think of a better tribute to a dear friend then Amigo Bingo. I like this bingo site not only for bingo but the 3D slots which are pretty amazing. I was in a bingo frame of mind and decided to play in the Quarter room.
There was a fair amount of players and the prize pool was averaging around $60 each game. I played the first game and had 1tg on six bingo cards and was certain I was going to be the winner. Well I thought wrong and lost.
I purchased 24 more cards and it was BOGOF and had a total of 48 cards. The chat mod was feeling under the weather and was going to have another mod take over. We all wished her a well and hoped she got better soon. My roomies were in a chatty mood and we all engaged in nice conversation.
My bingo cards were turning up yellow like crazy as I wondered is this another false hope game like the last one. Before I had a chance to give it too much thought my card turned a glorious red! I held my breath for a split second to see if there were any other winners and there wasn’t. I won a nice prize pool of $67.79 all to myself. Not bad considering I turned my bingo bucks into real cash.
Amigo Bingo is another good friend of mine! No matter what language the word friend is spoken in, friendship is universal.

I love nothing more than sweating one number when I play bingo. That’s the moment that truly makes bingo an exciting game. I played at the mighty Mecca Bingo but didn’t get the chance to enjoy my moment. Here’s what happened.
The best prizes were in the Club Bingo room. This is a free room but you can upgrade your cards for 10p each and win the Superbook prizes of £50 for one line, £100 for two lines and £150 for the full house. This room was jam packed. Over 500 players were playing. The chat was going crazy. These are people that sit in the free bingo room and the people that upgrade and pay for their books have to compete against them. I found that incredibly annoying. The cards were only 10p but even so there was no hope for us upgraders.
I played several games and each one was won by a free player. I upgraded each time and couldn’t get close. The second I got to around 4 to go, someone won the freebie prize. I’m down to 5 numbers and people are shouting in chat that they have 1 or 2 to go. To be honest, I never experienced a game of bingo that was that bad.
I should have known better and stuck to a room with a smaller prize and less people to compete with. I guess I got a little greedy but I will keep my wits about me from now on. Mecca Bingo is a fantastic site with plenty of other rooms. I could just kick myself for choosing the wrong one.

Sometimes you play somewhere and you think to yourself, why don’t I play here more often? That’s what ran through my head when I played bingo at Wonder Bingo. I’ve always enjoyed myself but for some reason it hasn’t been one of my “go to” bingo sites.
I went into the Plentiful Bingo room. There was just over 3 minutes before game time. I purchased 24 and I was in no hurry so I just sat back and zoned out. There were no card specials but I could understand why. In this room the game continues until 20% of the room is a winner. We play for a full house and continue on after bingo is called.
The game is drawn out a bit longer because there is no one line or double line prizes. 30 calls were out and I had 7 to go. I just sat there and watched the chat. 50 calls were now out and I needed 3 numbers, 28, 44 and 82. Bingo was called and we continued on. As I got closer I was getting more into the game. A heart began to beat as I got down to 1 number, 46. It was 2 calls later that I was included in the next batch of winners.
I took a moment to check out some of the features at Wonder Bingo. I really should play their more often. I usually use my bingo bucks but depositing has its benefits. There are some fantastic prizes available to depositors. Each player also has a wall much like Facebook. Your actions are posted on your wall and you can make tons of bingo buddies. It’s a pretty cool feature. The toggling between 3 rooms was introduced sometime in 2011 and makes it so simple to take part in multiple games. It’s also a little dangerous too with triple the purchases.
Wonder Bingo is on my list of top spots to play bingo!

Bingo Avatar was the place I chose to play 75 ball bingo this week.
The first thing I noticed was how empty the rooms were. The line prize in the 90 ball room was $0.25. It wasn’t surprising with only 2 players. I went off to the 75 ball room where we were playing for the “Z” pattern. At least there was a jackpot of $101.42 is I could bingo within 15 calls. The regular prize was $4.06. I bought 24 cards at $0.25 each and the special was buy 5 get 2 free. 15 calls came and went and I was nowhere. After 30 calls I still had 5 to go.
All I can say is that everyone else in that room must have been doing as poorly as me because I waited for O61 for about 6 calls. It was finally called and I won! I hit that big red claim button to claim that $4.06 like it was $406.
With my new found lucky feeling I stayed for another game but bought the max 48 cards. The prize was $8.94 for the X1 pattern. Guess what. I won that too. I barely even waited. Now if only we could get these prizes up. The next game was for the Taurus pattern with a prize of $0.50.
Despite my luck at Bingo Avatar but I was spending more on my tickets than the prizes were worth. This was where I made a fatal mistake as far as bingo goes. I stopped myself before things got any worse. My experience was bitter sweet.
You win some. You lose some. In my case I won and lost at the same time.

Mecca Bingo has great options when it comes to slot games. One of my favorites is Leprechauns Luck. Somewhere over the rainbow there’s a jackpot waiting for me.
The first thing I did was change the color of the reels. It’s a silly little gimmick but I like choosing the color. I made it purple then took my first spin at £1. Four mushroom symbols were worth £5. Then I got 3 bonus symbols and went to the Rainbow of Wealth Bonus. The leprechaun spins a wheel of colors. Each color added to the rainbow gets you one step closer to the jackpot. Your bet is multiplied as you move along the rainbow. Be careful, “Collect” is right in the center and you must avoid it to keep going. I did pretty well and won myself £50 during that round.
The next few spins weren’t too great. Not long after I got the free spins bonus. The leprechaun danced onto the screen and 7 free spins wafted out of his pipe. He locked 3 wilds and the spins began. Luckily I got £22 from the leprechaun’s generosity. Unfortunately, the leprechaun was no longer feeling very generous. I was up a few bucks and didn’t want to press my luck any further.
I haven’t made it over the rainbow yet but I’m still hopeful. I just have to catch that leprechaun when he’s in a giving mood.

One Martini, Two Martinis, Three Martinis More
Here we are in 2012 and the New Year is on its way to health and prosperity for all. I spent New Year’s Eve at a party and had wonderful time counting down the clock to midnight. I got a bit tipsy on my favorite martini the cosmopolitan but was a good girl and had a designated driver. Feeling a bit hung over the next day, I followed some good advice by “biting the hair of the dog that bit me” remedy.
This means to have another martini and that is exactly what I did at Bingo Knights when I played Living Large Video Slot. I have not played this in ages and to be honest I don’t remember liking this slot that much. But because it was martini themed I just had to if you know what I mean!
I have learned with Parlay software that when it comes to slots the best way to really win is to bet a higher coin value. I know this can sometimes be tough for players, particularly those on a budget. But if you are really considering spinning play more than at least the minimum bet.
The minimum bet is .45 on this 5 reel slot and I upped it to a .90 wager. I was not doing too badly so I kicked it up a notch to $1.35 a spin. There are two bonus rounds, one is the martini feature which will launch a new page filled with an array of martinis to spin. The other is the Big Wheeler Bonus where a big wheel is spun which will offer how many spins and multipliers a player will receive.
What I like about Living Large is both bonus rounds can pay nicely. Sometimes slots that offer 2 bonus rounds or more will have only one really good one. That wasn’t the case with this slot.
I hit the Big Wheeler Bonus round and had 20 spins with a 2x multiplier and won a whooping $101.25. It was an excellent way to start out 2012.
Did I mention I never really cared for this machine? What in the world was I thinking! I want to wish a Happy New Year to all my bingo playing darlings.
