Bingo Lingo

Master the most popular bingo phrases

If you don’t know your YOLO from your XOXO or your 1TG, then our guide to online bingo phrases is for you. Prepare to enter the 21st century, Roomie!

What is bingo lingo?

If you’re new to bingo, electronic communications or the internet, you might think bingo chat rooms are full of gibberish (and if you’re a bingo pro, what are you doing here? You should be playing!).

Because time is money and phone battery is worth more than gold, bingo players talk in messenger-style bingo slang. Below you’ll find our dictionary of the most popular shorthand text speak, bingo terms and fun stuff our Roomies say when someone wins.

Learn it. Use it. And really mean it, amigo!
