Online Bingo - Guidelines For Talking In Chat Rooms

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

More and more people are logging onto the internet everyday, just to play their favorite games, or chat with online pals. Many online bingo games now give players the chance to not only pay their favorite game and talk with their internet friends, but they can also get technical and game help simply by asking their question in the bingo chat room. Online bingo is one of the easiest, user-friendly games to play, because now, if you have a problem, all you have to do is type a question in the chat room and wait for a response. Gone are the days of spending hours on the phone with technical support, thank goodness!

Many bingo game sites also use their chat rooms for hosting their own small bingo games as well. Typically the prizes aren?t as great as those offered in the main games, but you can usually win several Bonus Credits, which you can use to purchase merchandise, etc. directly from the gaming site. One such site that offers these chat room bingo games is Bingodrome, which hosts Runner, Lucky Number, and Bounce, all very popular with their gamers.

As with any chat room environment, you should read the terms of service and follow the rules contained, as well as use some common sense before hitting the send button on your messages. The first thing that you should think about is your id or screen name. Don?t choose a name that someone else might find offensive, or that isn?t appropriate for people of all ages to see. Remember, that people from all over the world play online bingo, all races and nationalities, genders, and ages.

Follow the ?Golden Rule? as much as possible. Respect other players, and treat them as you want to be treated. If someone beats you several times in a row, you shouldn?t complain or accuse them of somehow cheating, you should move to another game or do something else for a while, rather than offending or insulting another player.You should keep all negative comments to yourself, not just in Bingo chat rooms, but really all the time, and you should in no way harass or verbally abuse another player. Don?t use racial slurs, or try to start conversations that would lead other players into talking about offensive subjects. Again, remember that people of all ages are playing the game, and that being said, you should never discuss anything of a sexual nature, or make suggestive comments.

If you type messages in the chat room and no one immediately responds, don?t get irritated or make snide comments, they may be too busy enjoying their Bingo game to chat, and that is perfectly okay. They could be online, but may not necessarily be sitting in front of their computer, of they could just be online to play, and may not be interested in chatting, just because someone is online, doesn?t necessarily mean that they want to strike up a conversation with everyone they see.

As with any online game, you should refrain from talking about other games or gaming sites. If you are playing on one bingo site, don?t start up a conversation about how great this other site is, or what cool prizes they offer. If the right person catches you doing that, you will be banned from the site anyway.

If you use all of your credits, don?t ask another Bingo player in the chat room if you can borrow from them. No one wants to be hassled by someone begging for their credits. These general guidelines are really not that difficult to live by, and if you can?t abide by them, not only could you be blocked from your favorite Bingo chat room, you could also find that you have been locked out of the entire Bingo site, which no one wants to happen.
