Learning the latest chat phrases will actually be a fun process. While many online bingo sites have a cheat sheet in order to help you out with any questions you may have, we will provide a basis for you to get started on.

One part of bingo lingo that you may have to get used to if you are from America is the fact that some of the phrases are what you will hear in other places such as England. For example, you are likely to see something such as “lads” which stands for away lads. Since lads is not a word that is typically used in North America that may take some getting used to. In addition, there may be such a saying as “queen” which stands for Save the Queen. However, the vast majority of chat phrases will be universal no matter where you live.

Most bingo lingo is just a shortened form of regular English words or acronyms. While you may feel a little dumb or stupid using them at first, you will soon feel more comfortable the more often you use the chat phrases.

A lot of times the online bingo chat rooms will have more than just conversation regarding the actual game. Chances are, you will become friends with your fellow bingo players and wind up having personal conversations. As a result, some bingo lingo will revolve around that rather than the actual game of bingo. For example, you may see “luwamh” which stands for love you with all my heart. You may also see “lol” when someone says something funny which will stand for laughing out loud. You may see something such as “imho” which stands for in my honest opinion when someone is asking others for advice. You may also want to say “tlyk” which stands for just to let you know if you need to convey some information to other players in the chat room.

The chat rooms of online bingo sites can be very fun places to have conversations. As a result, there may be many jokes flying about and you may find your funny bone tickled. When this happens, you may want to respond with “rofl” or rolling on the floor laughing. For a particularly funny joke you may even want to take it a step further and say “roflmao” which stands for rolling on floor laughing my @$$ off.

There are other times where you may want to speak to other players in private. If this is the case and you don’t want others to see what you have to say in the chat room, then you can use “lofting” in order to stand for talking in the private chat and then you can carry on your conversation away from others.

Once you get the hang of it, using bingo lingo will soon become second nature. In fact, it will be fun to be a part of an online community that you don’t see in the real world. Just be sure to practice and check back here if you need a little help with your chat phrases.
