Bingo- A Great Way to Have Fun

Bingo is a great way to unwind after a busy day. I love playing bingo and am tickled pink that I can do so without even leaving my comfort zone (the sofa). Sometimes I take part in the chat games (ways to earn extra points and prizes) and the chat and sometimes I don’t. That’s the beauty of it. Sometimes I give it my full attention, sometimes I have it running at the same time I binge-watch my latest craze on Netflix or similar. I love the flexibility it offers me (as well as the many free or affordable games).

Did I mention I like the fact that I can play in my PJs and fluffy slipper boots? I’m not sure that would go down well through at the nearest big bingo hall. We did have a bingo hall here in Thirsk but it closed down years ago. I went a few times and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wouldn’t drag myself out to a city to go to one of the big ones though, too much like hard work at the end of a busy day (I’m a mum and work full time from home so every day is a busy day).

Bingo is educational too you know (bear with me). My youngest loves to sit beside me and call out the numbers as they are called. He’s quite the whizz at it too.

One of my current favourites is Game Village Bingo who offered me free bingo bonuses after my first three deposits and I do like a freebie (check the site to see what the current offers are). For me, an hour or so on a bingo site is a great way to unwind, a lot cheaper than going out and of course if I win a little then that’s a bonus too. If you’re looking for a good site to play, you should give GVB a try. I flit between a few different ones as the mood strikes but this one is one of my main ones at the moment.

Are you a bingo player (who knows, maybe we’ve chatted online during a game before!)?

888Ladies and Millionaire Genie

Would you like a free £5 to use on 888Ladies on the Millionaire Genie game?” I was hardly going to say no, was I? I admit I have a bit of a thing for a spot of bingo now and then however 888Ladies was new to me so I thought why not?

As per instructions I registered and while waiting for my £5 account top up I explored the site. Lucky for me there was free bingo running (for newbies) and I managed to win 4000 loyalty points which I’ll be able to convert to actual pounds if I chose the make an actual deposit in the future.

While playing away I had the opportunity to have a bit of a nosy and I have to say that 888Ladies is by far one of the most simple sites bingo sites to navigate and yet doesn’t lack anything in its simplicity.


With my £5 loaded I headed over to one of the instants, Millionaire Genie, and proceeded to lose my £5. Don’t get me wrong, it took me twenty five very enjoyable minutes to do so as I would win a little and lose a little, and while lady luck wasn’t smiling on me that day I still enjoyed the exercise enormously.

For me sites such as 888Ladies and games such as bingo or instants like Millionaire Genie are a bit of fun. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and being something of a home bod I relish a night in rather than a night out so a little flutter now and then with low cost stakes (on Millionaire Genie as with most games you can choose your “bet”) it is a bit of uncomplicated fun.

Is Millionaire Genie my favourite game? Not my absolute favourite, although I am glad I’ve tried it out as I did enjoy myself, and while I won’t be voting for it in the Which Bingo awards (for the UK’s favourite bingo games) I imagine many will. I will however be voting for 888Ladies in other categories as I’ve enjoyed myself on the site enormously.

I’ll be looking forward to seeing the results of the awards as these serve as a great way to find new games that real users have voted for and have enjoyed. Who knows, I might even strike it lucky on one of them?

If you fancy a go at Millionaire Genie (a fun game with everything to win!) and you do strike it lucky, do remember where you heard of it 😉

If not, make sure you vote for your favourite game and give the  fun-seekers like me a heads up on what to try next time.
