Bingo Lingo is a very well-known phrase that belongs to the bingo industry and it is usually used for playing both the online and the land based version of bingo. The bingo lingo comes in various types and can be easily used for bingo nicknames and also it's a common chat term and acronym which is constantly being used by online bingo players in chat. This term not only that it manages to add more fun to the normal bingo sessions but it can be also used by bingo players in order to save time.
One of the key components of the online bingo lingo is the bingo nicknames. Even this might not be an essential thing that you should learn about bingo, it will definitely going to add a little bit of spice to the game that might seem a little monotonous after some time. Back in the days at the land based bingo halls, there was absolutely no game where nicknames like these were not used. For example each of the numbers starting from 1 and going to 90, there was a nickname which was used for each of them and most of the time it rhymes with the number in a way or another. The bingo nicknames or the bingo lingo are going to be different from one part of the world to another, most of the time these names are going to be created based on the culture and history of the people that are using them.
However the vast majority of bingo nicknames are universal and they are used for the bingo games that are played all over the world. For example the number one is named right after the famous Australian gangster: Kelly's eye. He was believed to have just 1 eye and this nickname is popular all over the world including the UK, America and Australia.
The bingo lingo is most of the time categorized into two different types: the one that rhyme and the ones that make sense. The nicknames that find themselves in the first category are the ones that rhyme with the bingo numbers that are called. A good example for this is the number 78, which is nicknamed heaven's gate. For those that are used the senses of the words are most of the time referring to important historical figures and events that took place in the past. In addition to all that, there are also some numbers that are directly related to the numbers being called, for example for 7 there's always the "lucky seven".
Another interesting example of a bingo number nickname is the 13 which is "unlucky for some". Since many cultures in the world are considering the number 13 as being an unlucky number. There are just some of these nicknames that blend in perfectly and make both sense and they rhyme at the same time. Here are a couple of examples: 80 - Gandhi's breakfast, here we are dealing with the food abstinence of Gandhi, where 8 rhymes with ate and 0 means nothing, this means that he ate nothing. Other interesting bingo nicknames are related to the shape of the numbers that are being called, two little ducks - 22.
