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.

The summer time is the right time.
Don't ya just love summer fruit? Cherries are as ripe as can be in the stores and farmers markets right now. I saw how bright red and shiny they were and had to buy a bag. I can say that they were most definitely as sweet as they looked. On a natural sugar high I logged into my 123 Bingo account to play a perfectly fitting slot known as Wild Cherry.
I didn't have a huge bankroll which made me think about the best way to do this. I started with the 5 line version and just bet $0.50 a spin. I had spun and spun and nothing. Now I got to thinking about changing slots but I had a feeling so I stayed with it. I played the max bet and started getting little wins here and there but not a cherry in site. 3 cherries on the 5th coin wins the jackpot which was up to just over $124.
I watched as those red 7's just missed the reels and then I was so close to hitting the jackpot. I mean to tell you I was close. Time stopped as the first cherry hit the 5th payline, then the second but no third. I watched so intensely but was sadly let down. I was out of money and left wanting more.
The summer time is the right time and I got a feeling on that slot. I will definitely be back to try my luck again with a bag full of sweet cherries.

Since I haven't had much luck lately, I decided to see what games other people play and where they have big wins. The only winnings I had the last couple of times were rather small, although I found them satisfying - better something than nothing, right? So, browsing through other people's experiences, I saw that Paramount Bingo belongs to a really good group of sites and has a lot if positive reviews, so I decided to try my luck there. I really liked the site and it was nicely visited. I first entered the 90-ball room because I haven't played in those for a while now. What I found strange playing bingo is that I almostalways win the first game. This time I covered one and two lines and that brought my balance up to €23.66. Unfortunately, I was only followed by bad luck afterwards with the occasional small wins. Eventually, I got under €15 which made me think what to do next.
I decided to enter the site's 75-ball room since the ticket prices were also cheap and I could afford a couple of games in the worst case scenario. That's exactly what happened; I played three games and I lost all three. I was down to €9.92 and even though I knew this wasn't my day I decided to play some slots. I chose to spend my last Euros on a slot called 'Coins of Rome'. But it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be; very quickly I triggered 7 Free Spins which earned me €4.80 and my balance got to €12.72. I was lucky enough to trigger another 7 Free Spins in which I got €2.55. The slot pays from both left and right side so in pretty much every spin I had some winnings.
When I finished, I realized that with less than €10 I managed to play over 30 minutes, which I thought was amazing. The best thing was that I still had some money left on my account, which will give me a chance to try my luck again on this site.

I have just finished watching a movie and a friend called asking if I was in a mood for a game of bingo. I thought what a crazy question, of course I was. My friend came over and after a short chat I started checking the bingo sites; I remembered that Virtual Bingo had a really good offer so I suggested that one. My friend agreed with me so we took a quick look at the site, saw that we both liked it and decided to stay there. There were three rooms available at that moment and we entered Blue Sapphire Bingo room.
The ticket price was the lowest, $0.10, which was the main reason why we started playing in that room. For the first game we bough 30 cards and the pattern was Crazy Cartwheel. Completely unexpectedly we won; the prize was $5.38. What a great start it was; so we felt encouraged to continue. In the second game the pattern was Crazy Connect 7 and we had 35 tickets ready. To our surprise, we won again; this time our balance was bigger by $5.61. Then I had to go out of the room to get us some water and it seems like that broke our little lucky strike. We continued the game buying more tickets for every successive game. For a Crazy Corner Cross we had 35 tickets and we ended up with 7 cards with 1 number to go; then we played with 40 cards and we had 8 tickets with just one number to go.
In the last game, we played with 48 cards and at the end we collected 3 cards with only one empty spot left. It was the sign that our luck was gone especially since the number of players remained the same throughout the evening. We were happy anyway and we had a great time together.

I must admit that I'm going through withdrawals from my favorite UK bingo sites and the slot games. Luckily I can get my fix online with Parlay slots. Thank goodness for Bingo Flash and their acceptance of US players. This week my slot of choice was 7's Ablaze.
This was a classic case of having a few bucks left in my account and playing it off out of boredom. Those seem to be the times when you win right? With a teeny weeny bankroll, I chose to play 1 line at $0.25 per spin. The jackpot of $696.93 could be won if I hit the '7s' symbol on the 3rd coin. I had to build up some cash before I could go for the jackpot and play more coins.
I find the 1 line slot games so difficult to win on. It always seems like the symbols never line up. At least with the 5 liners your odds are better. Most of my spins were duds. I just missed a 50 coin win when 2 green 7's landed on the pay line but the 3rd missed. I thought awww. Then on the next spin another green 7 hit and I thought, oh I'm going to get it. The second symbol was a blue bar and the 3rd was the green 7. How annoying! I took my last spin and hoped for a miracle.
I wasn't setting anything ablaze on this session. Each time the fire sparked, I was doused with a cold bucket of water.

These days I seem to have a little better luck online than I do in the land based world. I can't remember the last time I had a win at land based bingo. Being in the good ole US of A, I wanted to find a bingo site that good games and decent prize pools. I chose 2 4 1 Bingo and here's how it went.
I went into the July's Contest Room. The jackpot was $993.96 with cards for $0.25 each. I bought 20 cards and waited the minute or so until the game began. The pattern was 'Check' so with just 5 squares required, this was sure to be a fast game. Once the game began, the prize was up to $111.30.
After 6 calls I had two cards with 3tg and before I knew it I had 4 with 3tg. I got down to #11 and #64. Before I could get the least bit excited and adjust myself in my chair, someone called. I stuck around for another game with the 'Crazy Arrow' pattern and purchased another $5 in cards. The arrow can point north, south, east or west. Once all the tickets sales were tallied, the prize was $106.40.
I got down to 3 cards with 2tg and several with 3tg. These were speedy games and I didn't have a prayer.
I was impressed with 2 4 1 Bingo and the bingo prizes were really good. Although, I didn't win a penny, I enjoyed every penny I spent.

It’s always nice when I find some extra free time during the week so that I could enjoy and play online bingo even more that usual. I was looking for bingo sites and I decided to check out Naughty Bingo; I really liked the site and I always feel good vibes there. This time I was in a mood for playing only bingo and I felt that I might get a few wins that would cheer me up. I chose to enter a 75-ball room where the ticket price was £0.05; it wasn’t expensive and I hoped I would be able to enjoy the game a bit longer.
So, the first game started in a Showcase room, and I bought 36 tickets for £1.8; it didn’t go well and I wasn’t even close to a win. In the second game I won; I covered a letter Q and that win brought me £8.61. Even with this win I considered that my goal was reached and I continued playing more relaxed. In the next two games the patterns were a number 2 and a kite and I had a couple of tickets with 2 numbers to go. My bad luck continued in the next three games and when I though of giving up, I bought new cards and unexpectedly I won; I won just £2.29 because I had to share my winnings with two other players. After that I played just one more game; the pattern was a number 7 and I had three cards with one more number to go.
I decided to quit playing since I fulfilled my goal of winning at least one game. This is the site that I will go back to for sure not just because I won but because of an amazing atmosphere there.

In the last couple of weeks I couldn’t stop thinking about the weather and how to get away from the heat. One of the solutions is certainly playing casino games. At first I felt like trying blackjack which I have played successfully recently; when I went to Zoom Bingo site I was surprised to see that it offers not just bingo games and slots but also other casino games. So, my first impression about the site was great and I was ready to start playing and winning. However, it was not meant to be.
I started off with a game of Blackjack; I had £20 and I decided to start playing with a minimal bet of £1. But it didn’t go well for me; in each hand I had a value of 19 or 20, but the dealer would get 21. Needless to say, I lost in 10 successive games and even though I wanted to keep playing blackjack, I decided to give bingo a chance.
I entered a 75 Ball room and there were around 20 players and I knew that my luck is not that big; that feeling turned out to be true. The first game was a letter C pattern and I got to two cards with just one number to go. In the next two games I had several cards with one more number to go again. I was closest to a win in the last two games I played; in each I had 4 cards where I needed just one more number to shout Bingo. At the end, my balance was £0 and unfortunately I had to stop there. Even though I lost all my money which I knew had to happen sooner or later, I’m sure I will be back again.

I’m a big fan of video slot games. They are the best in my opinion because of the thrill with bonus round, free spins and all the bells and whistles. There is an exception and that is Parlay’s Double Diamond Spin. I played it at Big Time Bingo.
I started with the $0.05 denomination and bet the max of 5 coins. I hit 3 7’s and a few bars at first. I was winning $2.50 or here and there. It wasn’t much to get excited about but I realized that I wasn’t losing. It didn’t take long and I had doubled my bankroll. I prefer the 5-line version to the 1-line version. It just seems a bit easier to hit something than win just one payline.
The jackpot of 1,000 coins is won when 3 diamond symbols land on the 5th payline. That would be a nice chunk of change to win. I was doing well but I decided to raise my bet. What’s a gambler without taking a gamble?
With that I lost my entire balance. I took a chance and it didn’t pay off. My luck has been pathetic these days. Everything I touch whether it’s online or off, bingo or slots turns to dust. I won’t give on my Double Diamond Spin. I just may have to get some more cash and take the plunge.
Today, diamonds were not this girl’s best friend…

Curious George was always getting into some sort of mischief. The man with the yellow hat was always frustrated with the adorable little monkey. I have grown out of the childhood cartoon and now there’s Gorgeous George. This is a 9-line video slot game created by Parlay. I received a scratch card from Bingo Knights and noticed $30 already in my account when I logged in.
I played Gorgeous George at a nickel per line. I hit the bonus with a bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5. I was prompted to choose a chip then position George where I wanted him. He dropped the chip and it would land in a specific area depending on where I placed him. Well I obviously chose the wrong spot since the chip landed on “The End” immediately.
Frustrated I went back to spinning the reels. At just $0.45 per spin, my cash was lasting a while. I decided to raise the bet to just $0.90 to see if things would heat up. I hit another bonus and won 2x my bet per line for a total of 36 credits.
I didn’t know much but I knew that my bankroll was dwindling. I had countless spins that were absolute duds. George wasn’t in the mood to pay and he wasn’t shy about it.
George took me for a losing ride today.

I like to go back to the sites where I had a nice experience and one of those sites is certainly Gina Bingo. Even though I didn’t have some big wins, I had a few smaller ones so along with a good atmosphere I felt there I decided to go back. Without much thinking I entered Club 75 Hall. In the first few games I played I didn’t have much luck; but then in the third one I managed to cover a letter J pattern but unfortunately I had to share my winning so I got €2.25. I stayed in the same hall and in the next few games I was really close to winning; I had to cover a small box and a wine glass patters but in both games I had two cards with two more numbers to go. I decided to keep playing in the same room because it was very interesting and the games were changing rapidly; there was no place for a rest.
I went through the bingo halls and I entered a few different ones and in each I played a few games with more or less success. I had some good wins but I decided to stay longer in Bingo 30 Hall. The first game I played I won but I had to share the winning with five other players so in that game I earned €1.12. This actually happened to me a few more times so in total I won around €5 in four games. I stayed there to play more but unfortunately for me, I had some unlucky games which made me call it a day. I enjoyed the game of bingo again and that’s the most important.

After several days of extreme hot weather, it finally rained today and it was just what I needed. I wanted to play bingo, so I visited one of my favorite sites - Bingo Avatar. There were not many people playing so that was a bit disappointing but I hoped it would mean that I was going to win a few games. I first enter Bingo Chocolate room and there were only a few players but I stayed there anyway and it turned out to be a good decision. I bought 10 cards for the game and even with those cards I managed to cover a sad face pattern and win it which I expected to happen; I earned $2.55. For the next game I bought another 10 cards and at one moment during the game I had 7 cards with just one number to go. I covered a wave pattern and I won another $2.55.
Then I played in “Nickels” room or Party Gossip Bingo and there were slightly more players. I realized that 10 might be my lucky number today so I bought 10 tickets and got 5 for free. I won in that game again; this time the prize was only $0.56 and I even had three winning cards. I decided to stay there for one more game in which I won again; I earned $0.63 and I again had a couple of winning tickets. Free room was the only one with many players but I chose not to enter it this time. This was a good game of bingo but without much excitement but this was the first time I actually won when I expected to win.

It’s the week of July 4th. Independence Day in the USA is a day for family, friends and fun. In honor of this day of pride, I decided to play a little All American when I hit up the video poker section at Bingo Angels.
I opted for nickel poker. I started out small with just 1 coin per hand. If I happened to be dealt the Royal Flush, I could win $125 at just $0.05 per hand. I’ve never really been a huge fan of video poker but I have been told over and over that it’s the best odds.
I played several hands and won little bits but nothing to get excited over. I raised my bet hoping that things would move a little faster. If I could just hit something significant I could go play the slots. That’s my entire problem with video poker. I know that it has great odds but I lose interest way too quickly. I’m sure if I was dealt the Royal I would become really interested.
Anyway, my goal was to pull off a little $50 win at least. I would be up just slightly and then surely I would lose it on slots. I had a few decent hands but I was being pulled away by a strong desire to take a few spins on Club Spin. Winning 1 credit for jacks or better or small wins for three of a kind was all I could do.
It wasn’t long before I was off playing Club Spin. I’ve gotta stick with what I love ya know.

Parlay slots are the “go to” slot games for bingo players in the USA. It seems that site accepting US players are dominated by Parlay. So when in America do as the Americans do. I was running through my mental list of bingo sites to play at when I came up with Bingo Flash. It was time for a little Black & White Gold.
Black & White Gold comes in a number of line variations and denominations but I went with the one line $0.25 slot. The progressive jackpot was nearly $650. I needed to hit three B&W Gold symbols while playing three coins. Of course I had to play the max bet. It wasn’t a life changing jackpot but I would be high off the excitement of winning.
My luck has been horrible lately. I’ve been playing all the video slots at the land based casino and losing terribly. Spinning on a classic slot game was a nice break in the action.
Before long I had to knock by bet back and play just one coin. Wouldn’t that have been something if I hit the three B&W Gold symbols as soon as I reduced my wager? Oh I would be so mad. The most I could manage to get was one of the jackpot symbols on the payline the entire time I played. I had a few small wins here and there with 2 credits each time a star appeared on the payline and a few decent wins with the bars. Hardly anything to be excited about.
I was hoping for a little more gold than plain old black and white. Next time I’ll be expecting a gold rush!

I went back to one of my favorite bingo sites - Rogers bingo. I had a very tiring week so it was a perfect moment to visit a site that I’m familiar with. I’ve already had some money on my account but I made a small deposit just to be sure that I have a longer playtime. Unfortunately, there were not many players in my favorite bingo rooms so I had to wait for a while for them to come.
I decided to start playing in a 75-Ball Room for three players; the first part of the game was to cover the letter Z and then Full Card. In that game I got the Full card and I won €7.47. I kept playing and in the next game I covered both the letter Z which got me €3.67 and Full Card which brought me another €5.50. The ticket price was €0.31 so I couldn’t stay there for a long time because in the next few games I couldn’t win anything and I was losing money easily.
I entered the 90-ball room then, there were over 40 players. In the first few games I didn’t have much luck; I wasn’t even close to winning anything. Luckily for me, I managed to cover any two lines; thanks to that win I got €11,68. My balance got to €30 again so that made me very happy. After that win, I stayed in the same room and played a few more games but since I kept losing I decided to stop and continue playing some other day. All in all, it was one very good bingo evening.

After a long time I had managed to organize my day the way I like it; I went to the gym and then I had a good, healthy meal with my friend which was a great preparation for a bingo night. When I was all set and ready I went to a great site - Online Bingo, made a small $20 deposit but I hoped it would be enough to spend some quality time playing bingo. There were three rooms open and I chose to enter Dime Bingo room.
It didn’t start well for me; I played only three games and I was down to almost $5. I thought that it just wasn’t my day and that I should stop and maybe save some money for some other day, but I couldn’t do that. I bought new tickets and luckily everything went smoothly for me in that game; a pattern that I needed to cover was three candles. It was almost a perfect game; every called number was my number, I couldn’t believe my eyes. From that moment everything went just the way I could only imagine. I won next four games covering some of my favorite patterns: Sun, Bonfire, Ladder and Rotating Pyramid. My balance got to $28.59 which was almost $9 more than the amount I began with.
I stayed there for a few more games and I managed to keep my balance over $25. When I looked at the time I realized that I was playing bingo for almost three hours and I felt exhausted in an instant. It was time for a late dinner and a short, relaxing walk before a bad time.
