A palace dedicated to bingo sounds like a dream. I thought I might need my eyes checked when I found Bingo Palace. It was a new listing on LatestBingoBonuses.com with an exclusive no deposit bonus so I ran to it.
I grabbed the deposit bonus and jumped into a 75 ball bingo room. The pattern was Crazy Missing One and the prize was up to $23.70. The pattern was new to me and I really liked the look of the bingo room. It was no frills, just bingo cards and chat. There were tabs at the top to access slots, video poker and keno but I was all about bingo today.
There were 18 calls out and bingo was called. I think that might have been the fastest game I’ve ever played. I decided to get in on one more game with a prize of $20.80 and the pattern of BBQ Steak. I had to laugh when I saw that. My cards were filling up fast even after just 10 calls. Would I have beginners luck at Bingo Palace?
I got down to 3tg at 16 calls on 2 separate cards. With 2 numbers to go, I was starting to get a bit anxious. Beginners luck? Heck no. I was in a sea of other players and luck was not on my side.
I noticed the $10,000 coverall game coming up. I just may have to deposit and purchase cards for games with those kind of prizes.

Hollywood Reels, Boulevard of Broken Dreams……
I recently read that one of our members had some luck on Hollywood Reels. It got me itching to play it so today was the day. I headed over to Bingo Knights to give it a whirl.
Hollywood Reels has 9 lines and the minimum bet was $0.45. I was looking for a little more action so I started out at $1.80 per spin. I never ever have luck on the Dream Home Bonus so I wasn’t interesting in triggering it. The payouts during regular play can be very good on this slot game.
I love the bright colors of the symbols and the logo. I hit $6 for 3 popcorn symbols with a wild. Shortly after that little win I hit $9 for three Scatter Reel symbols. All of a sudden I got the Dream Home symbol on the 5th reel which triggered the bonus game. I had to laugh because there was no way I was going to get anywhere.
I had to guess the 4 digit code to win the dream house. I chose 5864 and won 216 credits. It was better than I thought it would be. I played for a while and held my own but there wasn’t much of anything to brag about.
I had no bragging rights and no dream home. I felt like a damsel in distress from a Hollywood movie…

Looking for a bingo site that suits my needs perfectly isn’t an easy task; sometimes the sites I didn’t like turned out to be lucky for me, but sometimes even tough I like a site, it turns out to be bad or unlucky for me. One bingo site that I really like, from the first time I tried it, is Bingo Palace; everything is very clear and simple and if I want I could play slots, video poker, keno or other casino games. This time I just wanted to check my bingo luck so I concentrated on available bingo rooms; at that moment three rooms were open.
I started off with $30 thinking that should be enough to have a bit longer playtime; I was hoping I would win a few games. I entered “25 Cent Palace Room”; I bought tickets for $8, the game has started and the first five numbers were the ones I needed to cover the pattern, but from that moment everything went wrong and at the end of the game I had only one card with three more numbers to go. That game turned out to be a disaster but, full of hope, I bought new cards anyway. A strange thing happened again; I came down to only one number to go pretty easily and eventually, I had seven cards with one more number to go. Ten bingo balls later someone shouted “Bingo” and unfortunately it wasn’t me.
With just two played games I was down to $14 which made me think about my next move. I entered “10 Cent Crown Room” and stayed there for a few games and since I didn’t have any luck there either, I decided to call it a day.

Weather could have a significant effect on players; it doesn’t matter if it’s too cold or too warm. I read that especially cold weather increases player activity; during storms even to 60%. Personally, if the temperatures are extreme I like to stay at home and spend time playing bingo. After I shortly deliberated about which site to choose, I decided that Big Time Bingo would be the right one. It’s a lovely designed site but when I was playing there were not many other players so the atmosphere wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be. There were three rooms available; Quarter Bingo Room, Dime Bingo Room and Free Room.
I chose to enter Dime Bingo Room and to my surprise my luck from the previous weeks continued. I didn’t have big wins but it wasn’t matter to me. The first game was to cover a small egg pattern; I won $4.80 in that game and I even had two cards with the winning combination; too bad it doesn’t count. Second game started; I covered Bonfire pattern which brought me another $2.45. After a few more games I earned $10 which brought my balance up to $30. At that moment I decided to change the rooms; I entered Quarter Bingo Room. It turned out to be a bad decision; I played four games there, I lost in all four. As a consequence my balance went down to $6.
I knew that after having a few good weeks, my luck had to come to an end. Even tough I lost more then I earned I still think that this was a good experience with a few good wins under my belt.

I’m not much of an avid poker player but I do strive to be. One thing I do know is slots and combining the two works out perfectly for me. I came across a new slot game at Virgin Casino called, Reely Poker.
I started out with 1.50 per spin but I noticed the “Slot Poker” feature. When that is flipped on, the player wagers an additional 0.50 and chooses one of three rows as their hand. This is played against the other two rows and pays up to 10x the bet per line when you win. The symbols are all the cards in a deck including the Joker which serves as the wild. The Ace is considered the Scatter symbol and three or more triggers the bonus.
In a short time I had triggered the bonus. This was set up like a game of hold’em and two pair or higher took me to the next round. I clicked on “deal” and had two pair and three of a kind taking me to round two. Round two awarded another pair. I made it through eight rounds and snagged £92.
I ended up slightly ahead by the end of it. The Slot Poker feature and the bonus game make this Reely Poker fun to play and more than just some cards spinning round and round.
I tried to think of some silly line to add so here goes. Reely Poker is Really cool! Hehehe

As a kid, I can remember so many birthday parties where we bashed the heck out of piñata. All the bright colors and the best part was the yummy candy. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I remember that the candy wasn’t that great. Anyway, I got back over to Jackpotjoy and looked through the New Games tab. I saw some new Instants and spotted Jalapeno Racers Piñata Party.
I get to bash up some piñatas in the virtual world but instead of bad candy I have a chance to win some cash. I love the design of the slot game and the instant. The colors are so cheerful. You just can’t help but fall into a good mood.
I played a few rounds at £2 each. Armed with a stick, I hit the pink flamingo, green lizard, blue donkey and purple boar. You may win either cash or free spins. I had a few duds but I loved the free spins. I didn’t hit anything major but I felt like a kid again.
I redeemed my free spins and wished I got a chance at the bonus but no such luck. This was the most fun I’ve had at Jackpotjoy in a long time.
All I needed now was more cash and a margarita or two.

I get quite a few offers from XBingo and with so many sites out there, I forget about some of them. I got an email from them about some daily promotions so I logged in. I sat for a minute and thought about what to play when it hit me. I hadn’t played a good game of 75 ball bingo in ages. What better time to get in on the 75 ball bingo action than right now.
There were a few games going and I had a little time to kill. I ended up playing a little on the slots and losing. I had enough left to play bingo so I bought 18 cards at 5p each. The pattern was Smiley Face and when the game began, the pace was just perfect. It was going to take a while because I think this is a tough pattern. There were 30 calls out and I was nowhere near completing the pattern. At 43 calls I had one card with 2tg and several others with 4tg.
Suddenly I noticed that I had 1tg on 3 separate cards. I was just getting excited, maybe a little too excited. I had clicked something and launched Windows email and it was blocking the bingo window. I closed that quickly and before I could determine what numbers I needed, someone called.
Ah, the life and times of a bingo player…

I just love to go out and have a cup of coffee with my best friend, that’s my favorite pastime. It would be great if we could have our hot coffees along with some bingo excitement; so one day we decided to have our coffee together and visit Bingo Café. I didn’t want to play slots at all this time, so we concentrated on bingo part of the site especially since we both had a good feeling about it. I deposited $20, the price of ticket was $0.25 so we decided to spend $5 for every game we play which meant that we’d buy 20 tickets for every game.
The first pattern was “Ripples” and the prize was $5.07 and everything started perfectly for us. We won that game and we both became really enthusiastic about our bingo-coffee evening. In the next game everything started well for us but we just couldn’t get that one last number so that we could rejoice and shout Bingo again.
But we didn’t have to wait much for that; in the next two games the prizes were $7.35 and $7.70 and we won in both games and this was the first time I was called “a player to beat” among bingo players in the chat room.
Then my friend decided to leave me to it - he went home and I played a few more games and won couple of them. My balance got up to $30, which allows me to classify this game of bingo as one of the most successful. I guess this was really my day, and thanks to the coffee I had with my friend, the winning tasted even better!

I love checking my emails to be surprised by bingo bucks in my account. I was sent an email from 32Red Bingo reminding me of my bingo balance. It was not much but enough to play a few games.
I entered a 90 ball bingo room with cards on sale for 10p each. The prize was fairly low but many of the rooms were closed. It must have not been peak time plus I was limited with my bonus money. Anyway I bought a couple quid worth of tickets and waited to get started. The chat mod, Candy, was very friendly.
There were few players in the room so I had cards that were nearly filled before the line was called. There was a juicy progressive jackpot of 14,543. Ah that would be fabulous to win. Anyway, with so few players the double line was 30p and the line was £1. I took a total of £1.30 for winning both prizes.
I hung around for another game. The prizes were slightly higher this time. Again, I won the double line! I needed #66 for the house. Then another card went red for #62. I actually won the house. My gosh, either I was very lucky or my roomies weren’t buying very many cards. I stayed and won a little here and a little there to keep playing.
It was all in a day’s BBz’s!

After having some success playing bingo I feel much more comfortable about looking and trying out new bingo sites. One of the places where I didn’t have a chance to test my luck is “Gone Bingo”. I really liked the site, it’s really simple and clear which I like the most. The site had 6 six rooms available but I decided to start off with its 75-ball room. There were only a few people playing so I hoped that I could use that to my advantage. I bought 22 tickets for the game and I kept my fingers crossed. The game price was only £0.96 but more importantly I won; so it was a good start. In the next game I played I had to share a winning.
I played a few more games and even though I had some small winnings, it became a bit monotonous and I changed the room. I entered Speeded 80-ball room; there were many people playing so I didn’t want to get my hopes high. But it didn’t go as bad as I thought it would; I covered any two lines which earned me £3.66. I started a new game where I needed to cover a letter D; everything was going pretty well for me but I was very unlucky at the end. I needed one more number to cover the letter and then in the second part of the game, I needed one more number for full house.
I stayed in the same room for a few games more but I didn’t have as much luck as at the beginning. When I summed up everything I realized I had a pretty good day; I had fun, had a few wins and what else I could ask for.

I know there are tons of players at Mecca Bingo. It’s a lot to compete against but we are all drawn to this site like a moth to a flame for a reason. They have amazing games and even better prizes.
I saw a game in the Lucky Numbers Bingo room with a prize of £50. Tickets were going for 5p or so and I bought £3 worth. There was something like 199 players participating in this game. I like the Lucky Numbers Bingo because you can choose 3 lucky numbers and win cash when you match them and there are also juicy jackpots in the room.
For the number of players in the room, the line seemed to go on for a while. I got down to 1 number but was beat out by another player. In fact, I think they ended up splitting so I felt a little better. Isn’t that terrible? When I get annoyed at losing, I love to see players have to split prizes. They get less and I feel a little better about losing. As long as I don’t have to split the prize, I’m okay.
Anyway, we moved on to 2 lines but I wasn’t on the edge of my seat waiting for any number in particular. Then the house seemed to drag on and I got down to 1 number for the £49.62 prize. I was willing #87 to be called. Come on 87 pleaseeee…. Nothing.
I hung around the bingo lobby for a while and played several more games. I had hoped for some good news to report but I wasn’t lucky on this trip to Mecca Bingo.
As many games as I’ve lost, there’s something about Mecca that I love. I will be back for more probably before this day is over.

Cyber Bingo was one of the sites where I didn’t have much luck so I decided to try it out again. I entered Spring room but the game had just started so I used that time to chat with other players. It was so interesting that I almost forgot an opportunity to buy tickets. Luckily I was reminded that the time for the new game had come. I bought only 12 cards and I didn’t expect much. I needed to cover an airplane pattern and everything was happening as usual; I had a few cards with 2 numbers to go, and only one with one number to go. I wasn’t very optimistic and shortly I stopped paying attention, which almost caused me to miss my first bigger win – everyone congratulated me on winning $37.15. Honestly, I was in disbelief.
Feeling like I was being on the top of the world I bought 36 cards this time, but in that game I had two cards with two more numbers to go. I didn’t care too much about that game so I quickly bought another 36 tickets; the pattern was a coffee mug and the 1st price was $100. I started this round of bingo pretty relaxed knowing that there’s no way to win that much. As the game passed by I realized that I had 4 cards with just one more number to go. I can’t describe you my happiness when I saw my name written next to the $100. That’s the biggest win I had since I have started playing bingo.
I was in awe and I couldn’t play anymore; my balance came from $10 to $114.31 and I was finally satisfied that besides fun I finally earned some nice money playing bingo.

Whenever I don’t play bingo for some time, I like to look for new sites and check out what they have to offer. One of these is Dandy Bingo which at the first look seems to be very well done and very welcoming. I couldn’t wait to start playing and since the game in 90-ball room had already started I entered 80-ball room called “Fusion”, where were 20 players and everyone seemed to be very chatty and in a good mood.

When I previously played at Castle Bingo I was very unlucky being very close to a win so I wanted to check it now with a new name - Bingo Cheers and see if it has become more generous to me. Maybe it was because of the weather but I didn’t feel chatty so I focused only on bingo. I entered Majesty 90-ball room, I bought 4 strips and I got 2 for free. The game has already started, but since it was way to slow for my taste I left the sound on for a while and started tidying up my room. How surprised I was when I realized that I covered both two lines and fullhouse! These were two small wins that additionally I had to share with three other people but, at least, my balance went up a bit and it was a good start.
I stayed in the same room since it was very convenient for my weekend room cleaning. I couldn’t remember the last time that happened but I had back to back wins; in my second game I won £2.54. By that time, Cheers Bingo had already got me cheering and started turning into my favorite bingo site. I stayed in the same room for a few more games and I had another small win of £1.56; a few times I was very close to winning some more games but I can’t be unhappy after all.
I only wish that every time I clean my room, I earn something. Unfortunately 80-ball room was empty so I couldn’t test my luck there; I didn’t feel like playing slots and I finished cleaning the room so it was time to take a shower and have some rest.

This was one of the bingo sites where I didn’t have much luck before but I came back since I liked it very much. This time I decided to play some slots first and I chose to play “Wild Wild West”. Unfortunately for me, things didn’t start well. There weren’t many empty spins but all wins were small - the biggest being £1.05 but at least it helped me stay in the game longer. My balance was down to almost £10 but I had a half an hour of playing. I thought it was enough so I turned to bingo.
I first entered 90 Ball room and I started to play with 15 tickets plus 10 I got for free. I played two games there with not much luck; there weren’t many people but I guess it just wasn’t my day. My next choice was 75 ball room where I also played with 15 tickets and 10 free ones. I really had to leave my first game behind - which I did - and that positive attitude brought me long waited win; my first win was £1.23. It certainly gave me hope that if I keep playing more wins would come. But as I assumed and according to my experience, I had no more wins.
At the end I checked out 80 Ball room; where I actually was very close to win a few times, needed just one more number to go. All in all, I had a good time playing at Eat Sleep Bingo with finally one win under my belt. It’s always nice to have a win, no matter how small it is, gives you confidence to play bingo again.
