Have You Ever Been Offended In An Online Bingo Chat Room?

Aug 24, 2008
Online Bingo is one of the most popular online games. It is available in almost every online gaming site. There are thousands of online Bingo gaming rooms where hundreds of people from all across the globe play with one another.

In order to win in a game of Bingo, you must play with two or more cards as it increases your chances of winning. You can play as many cards as you want but buy only as many as you can handle.

Before starting, the most important thing you need to do is to survey the site and make sure that it is a good one. This is especially important when you are playing for money. You can do this by reading reviews of the site. There are many sites which constantly keep reviewing sites, in order to give the visitors a fair knowledge of their reputation. You should find out everything about that site as there are many hoax sites also on the net. So, you should only play on a secure site.

Bingo is a very exciting game and its charm increases manifolds when played online. One of the main reasons for this is that while playing the game, the online Bingo also provides chat rooms where players can interact with one another. This enables us to turn a lonely game of Bingo into a social event.

You can meet and play your favorite game with the people sitting thousands of miles away. You can interact with them and also share tips and strategies. But just like any other social gathering there are some etiquettes which every player must follow while in an online Bingo chat room.

A player must use the civilized language in the Bingo chat rooms. If you are playing in a public chat room where any player can join you in the game, then your language should not be disrespectful. Avoid using foul language and swear words as they will offend the person on the other side. Also, it is not a good idea to misbehave with the administrator. You should not try to tease or swear at the administrator. You should also pay attention to his warnings and instructions as he has the power to ban you out of the game room.

You should remember that it's not the administrator's fault if you are losing in the game. Therefore, swearing and screaming at him will not make any difference. The administrator doesn't know you and he is not doing anything intentionally to harm you.

If you are winning, especially where money is involved, it is not polite to boast yourself. Nobody wants to know how much have you won and how good of a player you are. Try to be humble when you are winning. No, we are not saying that you should not celebrate a good win but try to stay in control. A boastful demeanor will only make you a hated person in the game room and it will create unnecessary tension among players.

Try to be a good sport!

Even if you are not winning then it doesn't mean that you should start making fun of others. It is considered quite rude to mock others in the chat rooms.

A player must understand that he may be interacting with the players of many different countries and cultures in those chat rooms. You must respect other people's culture also. Do not say anything that may hurt somebody's feelings. There are some words in English which are not considered to be very offensive for some culture but at the same time hold a lot of contempt for others.

For example, calling somebody a monkey is not considered to be very offensive in the countries like India, but it is the biggest insult for the people from Africa. Hence, try not to use such type of language in the chat rooms. Basically, do not type anything that you feel may be offensive to someone.

Some people also have the habit of typing in CAPS. This is also considered rude as in the Internet it is the equivalent of yelling at someone. Therefore, you should not type in the capital letters.

There is also a bad habit of some people to advertise in these chat rooms. This is a big nuisance for every Internet chat room. Do not advertise anything as it will only get your account canceled by the administrator.

Online Bingo is a great thing to pass your time on. This game does not require many skills and therefore people from any age and gender play it. On the Internet, your user name shows your personality. Some people use very explicit user names in order to stand out in the list of names. But this is very wrong. What is just a playful thing for you, may be very offending for someone else.

Just imagine what will a twelve year old think of your user name which has some sexual connotations? Hence, keep a name that is G-rated in every country. You can be imaginative but you must control your imagination after a limit.

Online Bingo etiquettes are very simple. Just treat others like you want to be treated. Chat and interact with people as much as you can but keep your language in control. Also, try to play at site which is reliable and safe.
