altTo chat or not to chat, that is the question. When you play online bingo, do you think it is rude not to participate? There is no doubt about it, many people are attracted to Internet bingo because of the social aspect. Bingo chat rooms are a brilliant way to meet new friends, to gossip, and to relax at the end of the day. Well-trained chat moderators ensure a happy, fair atmosphere, whilst running regular chat games, where roomies can earn free bingo points.

Sometimes, you may go to an online bingo site more interested in winning than chatting. Here, it can be advisable to go to a less busy site with less players in each room. Although the pots may be smaller, the odds of winning are better and there is less pressure to participate in online bingo chat.

With so much going on in the chat room, they can certainly be very absorbing places to pass the time. So, when you play bingo, do you prefer to gossip until you are blue in the face or do you prefer to blend into the background? If you are in a good mood and feeling sociable, it’s inevitable you will want to participate in the chat room gossip. However, if you have had a bad day, or are feeling frustrated because you haven’t had a win, it can be tempting to let your emotions get the better of you. Perhaps then it is better to step away from the chat room for a short while, until you are feeling happier — after all, nobody likes a gloomy roomie. Saying that if you have stresses and upsets you will usually find participating in a chat room can lift the spirits and more importantly, online bingo players generally are very supportive of others with troubles.

Certain online bingo sites, such as Cheeky Bingo and Wonder Bingo prize a good atmosphere in their chat rooms and offer handsome rewards for model roomies. Every week, the online bingo site Wonder Bingo announces a roomie’s name, and the happiest player will receive a £25 chat bonus. Similarly, playing at online bingo site Cheeky Bingo, there is the opportunity to be crowned Roomie of the Month. Evidently, these sites think it is important to foster a friendly atmosphere in the chat room.

At the end of the day, once you have joined a bingo chat room, there is no pressure on you to participate and despite the CMs best efforts, nobody can force you to join in. Sometimes, you can gain pleasure merely from reading what roomies write in the chat window — you can feel quite voyeuristic doing this.

In our opinion, participating in chat is like going to a party and not dancing. Nobody will really mind if you sit down all night, but we all know that getting up and having a good boogie on the dancefloor is where all the fun is that.
