Online bingo lingo part 3Yipee! We've finally reached the Top of the Shop – and the final
part of our bingo lingo series. This week we're looking at numbers 61 – 90 and
hoping to finally have made all things bingo lingo clear for you so the next time
you're in the running for the jackpot you know what to listen for. Most of these
calls are based on rhyming slang – such as 'flea' in place of the
number three, but others describe the visual representation of the number being
called. This is why the number two is commonly referred to as a duck and the
number seven, a crutch.
