Bingo Glossary

There is a lot of jargon in the bingo world and people may use it to try to confuse and impress you. Although the nicknames for bingo calls are dying out it is possible that some sites will still use them or other players might use them in chat rooms. You also might like to look at them just for fun.

Directly below is a list of all the possible numbers in UK bingo (one to ninety) and what the nickname/call for each one is.

After that we have another section that explains the jargon used in online bingo chat rooms.
