Online Bingo and Calls

There have been some changes in the transposition of the game of bingo into the online form of the game as we know it today. The biggest change has been seen in the way the game is played. This has not seen changes to the rules taking place, only that the software program has certain features that are not available to members of the land based form of the game. This is mostly seen in auto daub pg slot.

It basically means that your numbers are dabbed by the program, so you can busy yourself chatting away to roomies, making a cup of tea or playing in a side game. In the meantime the game continues playing and the caller calls the numbers. Bingo calls haven’t changed in anyway, and many online bingo sites pre-record the numbers called, by their own CM’s or by a famous bingo calling or other personality. One site, I can’t recall which one off the top of my head, ran a competition where parents sent recorded messages of their children calling certain numbers, so each number is now called by the voice of a different child.

Just the same as numbers are randomly generated in any game of bingo, they are randomly generated in online games. Each of the numbers has its own unique rhyming slang in the 90 ball game and this was engendered many years ago as a way to entertain bingo players. Bingo callers are well respected personalities in communities and there is even an annual online bingo caller of the year competition. Unfortunately this competition was canceled last year, and I have not seen much to indicate that another will be held this year.

People enjoy hearing the numbers called in this way and it has transitioned over to the online form of the game. Regardless of how old fashioned these calls may seem they really have stuck. Many new calls have been made up to suit the times, but the old players like the old name and even we younger players would rather hear them called, they have become familiar to us and we have grown up with them.

I would much rather hear 52 – Danny la Rue, called than 52 – Jimmy Choo/vindaloo! The reasons why these rhymes were developed was to ensure that everyone heard the correct number, it is a form of word association, so that even if you miss the number, if you hear Danny La Rue, you would know that the number had been “52 “.
