Play bingo online at Jackpotjoy and you’re guaranteed more than a good time, you’ll join an entire community of like-minded people. Chatting to friends while playing your favourite bingo games is a sure-fire way to have even more fun and potentially win even more prizes!

Our guide covers everything you need to know, including how to get started, unique bingo lingo and even some exciting bingo chat room tips.

How to Use Bingo Chat Rooms

Our awesome chat function allows you to interact with fellow players and chat hosts as you play. The conversation is fun, friendly and, most importantly, all about players! So whether you’re celebrating each other’s wins, moaning about the weather or toasting your grandson’s GCSE results, almost no topic is off limits. All we ask is that you be polite and courteous to all players and follow the basic chat etiquette.

Chat rooms are a great feature of online games, which is why you will find them in each and every one of our bingo rooms.

To get involved, simply sign up to Jackpotjoy, log in to your account and decide which of our awesome bingo games you want to play. Once it has loaded, a text box will appear on the side of your screen, which is where the conversation takes place. All you need to do is type your message in the text box and click ‘send’ - all messages will appear next to your Jackpotjoy username, while chat hosts will have ‘HOST’ at the end of their name.

Awesome Chat Hosts

Our professionally trained hosts are one of the best features of bingo chat rooms. Not only will they answer any questions that you have, but join in the conversation and share a few giggles too.

As well as greeting all players, hosts also use chat rooms to make special announcements and to award one-off prizes, bonuses and promotions!

Chat Room Etiquette

Playing bingo online is a fun, sociable and engaging experience. This is largely due to our award-winning chat rooms that allow players to interact with one another and fantastic hosts.

It’s entirely up to you whether you join in and while there are no bingo chat room rules as such, we strive to create a positive, welcoming chat-mosphere for all of our players.

With that in mind, the following bingo chat room tips are designed to maintain the friendly atmosphere that our community cherishes:

  • Chat rooms are open to all players, so do get involved as our hosts would love to say ‘hi’
  • Please be polite and courteous to all players and chat hosts 
  • Avoid swearing and aggressive language
  • Remember to keep conversations PG-13 - we’re here for a good time, not to offend anyone or make them feel uncomfortable

While hosts are the life and soul of our chat rooms, it is also their job to monitor the conversation and ensure that they remain safe and fun for all players. More information about this is available in our guide to staying safe while playing online bingo.
