Can you find the time to catch up with your friends? Do you live far from them and dread the journey it takes to meet them? Or are you, on the other hand, a little bored with your social circle and hungry for the opportunity to meet new people? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, online bingo could be just the ticket for you.
People in the web are heading for online bingo rooms to catch up with friends, chat, meet new people and be in with a chance to win cash prizes. After the launch last week of Bingo and Slots Friendzy, a new app on Facebook that allows players to win real cash games for the first time ever on the social network, you can do the above all at the same time. You don’t even need to leave the house. Friendzy can be accessed anywhere, anytime, through a PC, tablet or smartphone. All you need to do to sign up is log in to your Facebook account, find the app, install it and allow Gamesys, the company which developed the app, to verify your details. Players must be over 18 and live in the UK.
When you invite friends from your Facebook network to join you on Friendzy you’re awarded bonus games and groups of friends can also choose to share jackpots between themselves, increasing the odds of winning.
Once inside the Facebook Bingo and Slots Friendzy App players choose between slots games and two bingo rooms – the Candy Cove and the Vanilla Room. Candy Cove is distinguished by the adorable furry characters which bounce around the screen announcing the winning numbers while the Vanilla Room is designed like an ice-cream parlour, its walls dripping with delicious creamy vanilla ice-cream. Certainly an enjoyable place to meet your friends and pass an evening of rip-roaring fun!
Bingo is incredibly popular among women and we all know that when women get together, they like to chat! That’s why online bingo rooms have chat screens as well as a games screen, allowing players to multi-task – play, chat and win all at the same time. Inside the chat rooms, players abbreviate commonly used expressions in bingo such as 1TG (one line to go) or BLNT (better luck next time). Don’t worry if you don’t understand this bingo lingo the first time you play. Your bingo buddies or the always helpful chat host will explain anything you don’t understand. After a few games you’ll find yourself scribbling expressions like WTG (way to go) to lucky bingo buddies.
If you’re worried about spending more than you can afford, set yourself a budget and stick to it. When signing up to Bingo and Slots Friendzy players must bank a minimum deposit of £10, but slots games can be played for pennies and a single bingo card costs just 5p. Remember to play for the fun and social aspects of bingo and don’t take the game too seriously. The point is to enjoy yourself!
