We love bingo. You love bingo. However, sometimes, a single game of online bingo just isn’t enough. Fortunately, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can now play two games at once. How is that possible, we hear you cry? Simple: bingo chat games. Running in tandem with any game of online bingo we offer, these added extras are there to encourage more interaction between players and, in turn, make things more entertaining.

What Are Bingo Chat Games?

As the name suggests, bingo chat games are competitions that take place inside a chat box. The beauty of bingo chat room games is that they don’t detract from the main action. In other words, you can take part in chat games at the same time you’re playing bingo.

How Do Chat Games Work?

Bingo chat games are designed to be quick, simple, and fun. Because they complement the main game (i.e. bingo), they don’t require too much time and effort. When you enter an online bingo room, you’ll notice there’s a chat box. This is where the games take place. A moderator, aka the host, will come in an let everyone know what type of game is on offer and explain the rules.

Once you know what the game will be and how to play, you simply follow the instructions given. Some bingo chat games won’t require you to do anything more than enter. Others will require you to type answers into the chat box. Whatever the task, a certain number of players (or just one) will win a prize. Again, it’s important to note that all of this is happening while the main game of bingo is taking place.

How to Choose the Best Bingo Chat Room

Choosing a bingo chat room comes down to personal preference. Here at Paddy Power Bingo, we like to offer a variety of games in every setting. In other words, you can enter any bingo chat box and try different games at different times of the day. Therefore, the best way to maximise how much fun you’re having is to choose rooms based on the main game and its players.

For example, if you’re a fan of 90 ball online bingo; Crystal Room or Paddy’s Pad might be your go-to games. If you’re a fan of 75 ball bingo; you’ll want to try something like the Pearl Room. Once you’ve found a format that suits you, you can open the room and see who’s in the chat. If you see some friends, or you get a good vibe from the people there, that’s the bingo chat room for you.

Bingo Chat Room Tickets

In general, bingo chat games are free to play. There may be times when you have to pay to enter. However, the cost of a “ticket” will be low and never usually more than £1, or whatever your currency equivalent is.

Prizes in Bingo Chat Rooms

Bingo live chat prizes will vary from game-to-game. Sometimes, there will be cash on offer. Other times, you’ll be able to win free bingo tickets, reload bonuses, or slot spins. As we’ve said, bingo chat games are meant to be entertaining and bring something extra to your overall experience.

Yes, there are real prizes, but they won’t be as lucrative as what you could win by actually playing bingo. However, in most cases, you won’t have to pay to play an online bingo chat game.

The Number of Players in a Chat Room

The number of players in a chat game will be based on the number of players that enter the room and opt to take part. Sometimes, there might be a dozen players in the game, sometimes there might be over 100 people. It all depends on how popular a bingo room is and how many people decide to play.

Bingo Chat Rooms with Jackpots

Here at Paddy Power Bingo, we’ve got an array of progressive jackpot games. As well as jackpot slots, you’ll find online bingo rooms that feature ever-increasing prizepools. For example, 90 ball Deal or No Deal bingo offers a progressive jackpot that pays out when someone hits a full house within 34 calls. 2% of everyone’s buy-in goes into the pot and, if someone wins, they take 50% of the jackpot, and the remaining 50% is distributed among everyone else in the game.

Newbie Bingo Rooms

Newbie bingo rooms are the best place to meet members of the community and make friends. Bingo chat rooms are all about socialising and, of course, playing games. Our software also allows you to mark someone as a “buddy”.

This means you can find them any time they’re logged into the site. Newbie rooms are where every new customer goes during their first week on the site. As such, it’s a great way to make “buddies” because everyone there is looking to make a friend or two.

Popular Bingo Chat Rooms

As you’d expect, some online bingo chat rooms are more popular than others. The popularity of a room basically depends on how popular a game is. Of course, everyone can have their own favourites. However, the bingo rooms that get the most action here at Paddy Power are:

  • Deal or No Deal
  • The Crystal Room
  • The Diamond Room
  • Rainbow Riches Bingo
  • Cash Cubes.

How to Choose the Best Chat Name

Everyone needs a nickname at Paddy Power Bingo. This name has to be different from your Paddy Power username. Why? Because bingo is just one of the many things we offer. Therefore, we need a way to separate what you do on this part of the site from what you do in the poker room, for example.

When it comes to choosing a bingo chat name, you’re free to be as creative and quirky as you like. In fact, the more interesting your name is, the better, as it will help you make more friends. However, whatever name you choose, make sure it’s not offensive or rude.

Types of Bingo Chat Game

Now we’ve established what bingo chat games are and how they work, let’s take a look at what you can play:

Themed Chat Games

These bingo chat games are all about current events. For example, if a TV series is airing, the host may ask questions about that show. Alternatively, it might be Easter and the host might ask you to come up with some egg-based jokes or puns, with the best one winning a prize. Basically, if something is in vogue, our hosts can create games based on it.

Trivia Chat Games

Trivia chat games are often the most popular because they’re a true test of knowledge and skill. The way in which questions are asked and formatted will vary. Sometimes, you might have to answer a straight set of trivia questions. Other times, the bingo chat host might set a topic and ask you to name a certain number of things associated with it.

Buddy Chat Games

Buddy bingo chat games are also known as roomie chat games. These are the easiest games to play because you don’t have to do much. For example, in an Up and Down Buddy Game, the winner gets a prize. However, so do the players listed directly above and below them in the chat box.

The same applies to Alphabet Buddy Games. If your name starts with the same letter as the winner, you’ll win as well. Finally, if it’s a team game, you’ll have to pick your teammates. If one of you wins, you all win. 

Numbers Chat Games

Don’t worry, number bingo online chat games don’t require you to perform complex calculations. In reality, these games are designed to test your prediction skills and powers of perception. For example, a “first ball” chat game requires you to guess which number will be drawn first. Mirror mirror games are a little more involved, in the sense that you have to call out when two mirroring numbers are drawn e.g. 43 and 34.

Other Types of Bingo Chat Game

Because chat games are fairly free-flowing, there’s no limits to what a host can do. For example, you might be asked to write the next line of a famous song (i.e. a karaoke chat game). Alternatively, you might win a prize if the numbers drawn make up your date of birth. Basically, if it’s entertaining, engaging, and some sort of challenge, it can be turned into a game by our bingo chat hosts.

Who is Present in Bingo Chat Rooms?

Online bingo chat rooms and, therefore, the games played inside them, require three main participants:

The Moderator (Host)

The host is the most important person in the chat room because they control the action. Their job is to start conversations, answer questions, and generally make sure that everyone is having a good time. They’re also in charge of the games. So, if you see a chat host, make sure you take note of what they say.

The Bingo Caller

The caller is the person shouting out the numbers drawn in the main bingo game. All of this is handled by our software, so you don’t have to worry about watching the numbers or marking them on your game card.

The Roomies

You are a roomie. When you enter a bingo online chat room, you’ll become part of a mini-community of  fellow roomies.

The Moderator’s Role in Bingo Chat Rooms

What is the role of the moderator in a bingo chat room?

In essence, bingo chat hosts are there to maintain balance, keep the peace, and ensure everyone has a good time. On the one hand, they’re someone to chat to. On the other, they set out and enforce the rules. Hosts can also answer questions, assume the role of the caller, and, of course, start a chat game.

Do all bingo chat rooms have hosts?

Yes. Even if the host doesn’t start a chat game, they’ll be there to preside over the action. If anyone breaks the rules, requires help, or just wants to talk, a chat host will always be on hand.

Can a chat room have more than one host?

In general, online bingo chat rooms will have one host. However, there may be instances where additional hosts are present.

Online Bingo Chat Rooms vs. Offline Bingo Rooms

Online bingo was designed to replicate what you can do in a brick-and-mortar venue. In recent years, new ideas and innovations have taken digital games to a new level. However, at its core, bingo is a social game in all contexts. When you play offline, there’s a social atmosphere. Online bingo sites have continued this tradition through chat boxes.

In fact, you could argue that online bingo is more social because it’s easier to talk to people via a chat box. Because your messages can be read by everyone in the room, it’s possible to converse with hundreds of people at once. That’s impossible in a live game. So, while offline and online bingo share a number of key qualities, the latter actually makes it easier to chat with those around you.

Bingo Chat Rooms Popular Questions

How many chat rooms are there at an online bingo site?

There can be as many chat rooms as there are bingo games. This means there can be dozens of chat rooms and hundreds of players chatting at any one time.

Can you win a Jackpot in a bingo chat room?

Yes. If the bingo game offers a jackpot prize, you can win it. Of course, you have to have a ticket for the main game. In other words, you can’t be a spectator and win the jackpot. However, if you’ve bought a ticket and hit the right numbers, you could scoop a progressive jackpot. What’s more, most of our bingo jackpots are split. This means the winner gets a cut of the prizepool and the rest is shared among every other player in the game.

Can users join more than one chat room at the time?

Yes. You can play multiple games of online bingo at our site, which means you can also take part in multiple chat room discussions and games.

Yes. Most bingo chat games are free to play. As long as you’re in the main bingo game, you can take part in a chat game at no extra cost.

Can I play bingo chat games for real money?
