- Choose a Bingo Hall. There are different types
- Practice Bingo Room. This type of room creates a setting for you to practice bingo for free. Usually it’s private so you can’t chat to others when you are in here. Not all Bingo sites offer this practice service, but for beginners it a good place to start.
- Main Bingo Hall. In here you play for real money and there will usually be other players in here. While waiting for your numbers to be drawn it is very popular to socialize with the other players and join the ongoing extra games in the chat forum. Should you be bored you are likely to find various types of slot-machines, poker- machines etc. available at the site.

Now you are ready to play bingo online, but since there is much more to online bingo than just the game we will shortly mention a few things that are good to know before you enter the rooms.
By using the Auto-dauber you practically have to do nothing at all, since the computer will automatically mark your numbers. In most bingo halls it will also call out “Bingo!” for you if you are the lucky one (but please check if it is necessary for you to press the bingo button yourself!).
It is a good idea to use the Auto-dauber, so you don’t have to stress during the game, and it enables you to use a lot of cards in one game. As a fun feature you can personalize your Auto-dauber to use different colors or animations.
Usually you have to get a row or a full plate in order to get bingo, but at some sites other funny patters are used as well. If this is the case you will see a figure which illustrates the pattern you have to get in the top of the screen. You can also see the pattern on you cards where some numbers are darker than others.
You can choose among different callers – some might prefer a sexy lady voice others a sweet man. You can also choose to accompany you caller by different sorts of background music.
When you have lots of cards and can’t see all of them on the screen, it can be a good idea to use the auto sort function. This function enables you to see the cards that are closest to a Bingo.
While playing Bingo you can also play different games like video poker and slot machines in small windows on the same screen. Please pay attention to the fact that these games might have different wagers and regulations.
The chat forum
Finally you should use the chat forum when you are online. First of all it is a great place for socializing and making new friends. Second, the chat manager (who represents the casino) and other players are usually very helpful towards newcomers, so they can help you if you have any questions. Third, there are also lots of extra winnings to pick up in here where the chat manager will present some different kinds of extra game (for example the first 3 players who yell ’me 3!’ in the chat forum when number 3 is drawn will win extra money).
