This week took me back to Vic’s Bingo and boy was it a good day!
I entered the Nickels Room – Candy Bingo. The jackpot prize caught my eye at just over $700. The sale on cards was another aspect that drew me in for some 75 ball bingo. I bought the max cards and got 5 free. The pattern was Hot Dog. I love a good Chicago style hot dog and I got such a kick out of the funny pattern.
The prize was really low but I had my eye on the jackpot. I knew that I wouldn’t hang around for another game in this room with a prize at around 4 bucks. I think I spent more on my cards. Anyway, my hot dog was beginning to take shape. I got this feeling of just wanting the game to be over. This was a case of seeing a good deal and not paying attention to the prize. I got down to 1tg. I needed 1tg on 3 cards and just missed it.
I got out of there as quickly as I could. I jumped into the Quarters Room and bought the max cards. The pattern here was the ladder and at least the prize covered the cost of my bingo cards. I had some time to spare so I played a little Three Times the Riches. I only had just over 3 minutes and I hit 2 logo symbols with a green seven for $112.50!
I quit and waited for my bingo game. The prize has climbed up to $21.60. I was so excited about my slots win that I paid no attention to the bingo. My card flashed green with 2tg then red with 1tg. I was the winner but had to split with batwoman.
It was a fabulous day at Vic’s Bingo. It reminded me of why I love to gamble. There’s nothing like the feeling of winning!

One thing I don’t like is grocery shopping and today is the day when I have to do it. I was preparing a grocery list but my mind was somewhere else. I was thinking about bingo; so, when I finished my list instead of going to the supermarket I stayed home and played bingo, like every responsible person would do. I went to Epic Bingo site and I stated playing with £60 on my account. There were two 90-ball rooms available - “Regency” and “Linked”; I first entered the room called “Linked” and a stayed there for a few games. It was enough to realize that it’s just not going to be my day. I played five games with 72 cards – 48 plus 24 that I got for free; and in just one game I had two cards with just one number to go. There were many players at that moment but I really thought I would win at least one game. Then, I entered the “Regency room” and the same story continued; I played another five games and in one of those, I had one number to go to cover two lines, and that was all.
I didn’t have much money left, less than £10, but I tried to play some slots. I opened “Treasures of Egypt” and miraculously, with some very nice spins got my balance back to £26.60. The Substitute appeared often and that was enough for a really good game. In the end, my balance was down to around £10 and I decided to stop playing. It turned out that I should have done the grocery shopping instead of playing bingo, but at last the experience wasn’t entirely disastrous.

Eat Sleep bingo has changed its design so visiting the site after a couple of months was a great experience; it was like visiting a new site. I can’t say that I had a big success here but the site has a great service and it’s always busy and chatty. I’ve already known that there are three bingo halls but only 90-ball room is open 24h. Since the other two were closed at the time when I decided to play bingo, I entered the one that was open and there were around 20 players - so I hoped for some good results.
The prizes weren’t high so covering one, two or all three lines would bring me just over the tickets’ price. I bought 48 cards and I got 32 for free and very soon the game started. It was going really well for me. Very easily I got two wins for covering one and two lines. Now, only the three line cover was left and I was hoping to be a complete winner. All of a sudden, the game slowed down and I wasn’t getting any numbers that I needed; I had 10 cards with one number to go and I started panicking that I was going to lose. Luckily for me, number I needed, 42, was called and I won additional £2.60; in that game I won £5.30 in total.
I kept playing and I had some small wins between £0.5 and £1.50; eventually I stopped playing because it wasn’t paying off for me at all after that first game. I didn’t earn as much as I hoped but at least I had a few good wins and I didn’t have big losses.

What can you say about Parlay’s Three Times the Riches slot game? I have so much fun playing it even though I tend to like video slot games with bonus round or free spins. It was time to go back to this old friend and we met at Bingo Flash.
I had $20 to play with and started with the nickel 5-line version but I preferred a bit more of a thrill with the $0.25 max bet. I got down to $10 when I hit the 3 red bars with 2 Three Times the Riches symbols for $67.50. Now I had something to work with. Walking away wasn’t even a thought in my mind so I kept spinning. I had to have a limit but I didn’t want to think about that just yet.
I hit another log symbol and 2 cherries for $9.25. Could this slot be in the mood to pay? After about 10 minutes or so I was still hanging around $70 in my balance. Three logo symbols on any of the paylines would be just fine with me.
It seemed like any time I got two of anything on the reels, the third never came and that is very frustrating. I had decided that when I got down to $50 it was the end of the line. I hit 7 green 7’s and a three timer for $37.50. Now at $96.30, I had a new limit of $80 and it went on like that until I quit with $125 in my account.
Three Times the Riches definitely lived up to its name and more.

I appreciate good graphics and when I see a bingo site that has cool logo or mascot, it makes me want to play there. This is how I feel about Vic's Bingo. The logo is adorable with a motto to match, 'The Sweet Taste of Victory'.
I hit the Quarters Room to play a few games and the jackpot was really up there at $6,554.47. The pattern was Tetter Totter. I bought 20 cards and prayed for a win. The prize was $37.35 and got down to 2tg really quickly. I was waiting and waiting but I was stuck on 2tg forever. Then, another 2 cards went down to 2tg and again I was waiting.
Suddenly my cards went yellow and I had 2 with 1tg. I was wondering how many players were in the room because surely someone would be calling any second. I didn't want to take my eyes off of the cards but I pried them away for just a moment to see 23 roomies. I locked my stare once again and bingo was called.
I stayed for the Ladder pattern for $21.30 and I bought another 20 cards. The calls were coming out so slowly. I actually prefer bingo sites that move things along a little more quickly but either way I was down to 3tg and a winner had to be close. My card went yellow and I was waiting on #29 for a split second and my card went bright red. I hit that bingo button so fast!
I won and ran off to hit the slots where I managed to double my money. Not a bad day in the Vic's Bingo neighborhood.
