If you’re completely new to bingo we know it can be a bit daunting, there’s a lot to take in!

Here’s some of the Blingo, explained!

  • All In

    One price for all tickets in play, easy peasy!

    Admission

    Some clubs charge a separate admission fee, retro baby!

    Bees

    It’s what we call our handheld Electronic Bingo Terminals.

    Book/s

    One ‘book’ contains several pages and games, made up of 15 number bingo tickets. The more books you buy the more numbers you mark off each game.

    Dabber

    Those big felt tip markers used to ‘daub’ the numbers on your ticket. We’re so nice we’ll give you one for free when you join!

    Eye’s down

    Ssshhhh, it’s bingo time!

  • Link games

    We hook up with our sister clubs and sometimes other clubs around the UK for national games and bigger prize money, whoop!

    Mains / Main stage bingo

    This is the main session of bingo, the big event.

    Intervals

    When the bingo stops it’s time to grab a drink or bite to eat, check out the arcade or stay put for a game of parti bingo.

    Optional Extras

    Games and stamps that aren’t included in the advertised price so if you want them you pay for these separately – but you’ve guessed it, they’re optional.

    Parti Bingo

    Also known as cash bingo, it's a fun game played before or after the main session and during the intervals where you cover the numbers called on a board or table top.

    Paper bingo

    The old school way to play! Mark your numbers off with a dabber for the ultimate retro experience!

  • Prize Bingo

    Same as parti bingo but you play for prizes instead of money, cuddly toy anyone?

    Trade Up

    Play for free OR trade up and pay - you’ll win more prize money than the free option.

    The Lot

    Same as All-in but different name!

    Stamps

    Optional extras – buying a stamp gives you a chance to win jackpot prizes!
