Bingo chat rooms

Read our chat rules & meet the hosts who keep the good times rollin’

Real life bingo is all about the social and online bingo is just the same! All of our online bingo rooms have a chat feature so you can communicate with hosts and fellow roomies. Our chat rooms are the heart of PlayOJO Bingo, the place where prizes are celebrated and lasting friendships are made. Get typing and see what we mean!

Chat rooms

Attached to every bingo game is a nice big chat box where hosts and roomies message each other in real time. From hi’s & bye’s to classic bingo lingo and chat games, the PlayOJO Bingo chat rooms are where it all hangs out!

Chat hosts

Our chat hosts are the life & soul at OJO’s World of Bingo. They’re the ones who open the door when you arrive at the party, take you down at Twister and pop you in the cab at the end.

OJO’s crew of bingo sidekicks are real, actual human people who make his bingo rooms fun and fabulous 24/7! From helping you out with a question to running chat games and giving you a virtual high-5 when you win, our chat hosts put the mojo in OJO Bingo (OK, there’s no ‘M’ but there should be).

Our hosts love bingo as much as you do and what they don’t know about bingo isn’t worth knowing. Their main job is to make bingo more than just a numbers game. But they also:

  • Answer game-related questions
  • Set the tone for the chat room
  • Ensure OJO’s bingo chat rules are followed
  • Run chat games in an efficient, fair and fun way

But who are they and crucially, how many cats do they have? Let’s meet the hosts!

Chat games

Bingo is exciting enough without more ways to win, but hell – that doesn’t stop OJO! Around half of our bingo games include a chat game run by your host. They’ll give you the rules – be the first to get a trivia question correct, for example – and give the winner a free bingo ticket. Learn more about the different games we play on our Chat Games page.

Chat rules

OJO’s chat rooms have the friendliest roomies on planet bingo. They wouldn’t say boo to a goose! But we’ve still got a few do’s and don’ts, just in case. If our hosts think you’ve broken any of these rules, they’ll probably give you a friendly warning. Next time, you might lose your chat room privileges.

  1. Be nice. Bingo is more fun when players are polite, considerate and friendly. We don’t do discrimination, personal attacks or any kind of aggression. Respect our hosts too, they’re doing their job as fairly as possible.
  2. Keep it clean. Yes, we’re all adults, but profanity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. No swearing or bad language please.
  3. No SHOUTING! Don’t use capital letters except in the right way. It hurts our eyes and it’s considered rude to do it online. Hosts are the exception and may sometimes use caps to make important messages stand out.
  4. Don’t argue or offend. We’re all friends here, right? No need to upset anyone with abuse, harassment or threatening chat towards other roomies or hosts.
  5. Steer clear of sticky subjects. We’re here to hang out, have fun and play bingo. No religion, sex or Brexit. That’s what Twitter’s for.
  6. Be patient. Hosts and other roomies might be busy answering someone else, typing or making a cuppa. Give them time to respond and they will (unless they’re shy).
  7. Protect your privacy. It’s not usually sensible to give your real name or any personal information like your email address. Be safe!
  8. Be yourself. You’re you. Don’t impersonate a host or another player, even for fun.
  9. No spam. Advertising is not allowed, nor is repeated posting of the same text. It spoils the chat room for everyone.
  10. Stay positive. Bingo is a pure game of chance powered by a certified random number generator. You win some, you lose some. We’re as fair and random as it gets, but sometimes it might not feel that way. Instead of typing ‘same winner’, be patient and your next win will come. Or log off, take a break and come back when you’re ready. We’re all about safer gambling.
