5 Things Online Bingo Taught Me About Life

January 2nd, 2013 | by Brooke Lawrence

A good friend and Polo Bingo player told me how playing bingo online really changed her life (no kidding!) which I just had to write about. With her permission I put these in a list that pretty much sums up how we feel about bingo, as describes by a real Polo Bingo player. See roomies…Playing bingo online really does pay off! 

5 Things Online Bingo Taught Me about Life 

Mega Jackpots, bonus cash prizes and great promotions are part of what makes us bonkers for online bingo, but it isn’t just all fun and games! Believe it or not, this pretty little past-time contains some important life lessons that everyone can benefit from. That’s a real guaranteed win in my book!


5 Things Online Bingo Taught Me About Life

Playing online bingo can teach you a thing or two about life!


1. Take (some) Risk . Live a little! When I first started playing bingo I only played in the free bingo rooms, but I quickly grew bored with the game.

I realized that if I didn’t take some risk, I would also never get the chance to win any funded games or jackpots, plus I would miss out on Polo Bingo’s £1,000 welcome package.

So I deposited my first £10 and became a funded player.Sure, I’ve lost a few quid here and there, but the thrill of the game gave me just the jolt I needed to be more adventurous in other areas, too.

When I won my first jackpot in Payday Bingo, I used my winnings to buy a pair of expensive flashy heels– something I never would have worn before but always wanted.

2. You Win Some, You Lose Some. “Rejoice in your victories and let your losses go,” mum always said, which warranted a lot of eye-rolling from me.

I learned to believe these words of wisdom after getting used to playing bingo online. I lost my first six games of bingo, so I wasn’t too pleased.

Then I won that guaranteed £2,000 jackpot on Payday Bingo!  You’ve heard the rags to riches story a million times before, and the opposite is just as true: you could be dancing diamonds one day and rolling in rubbish the next. 

Life is too short! You can’t predict the future but if you learn to roll with the punches you’ll always come out feeling like a winner.

3. You never know where you’ll meet a friend. I never would have thought I’d make such lovely friends playing online bingo games, but I have!

The chat community turned out to be one of the biggest perks of Polo Bingo, and I’m not just talking of the chat games and free polo chips doled out by the hosts – the roomies themselves keep me entertained.

We give each other tips, offer support, exchange recipes and gift ideas. I even meet up with a few of the girls once a week for drinks or a coffee. We always have something to talk about!

4. Expect the Unexpected. Never, say never ever!  I came to Polo Bingo by pure chance – a good friend sent me a link to the site on Facebook. I clicked on the link and was hooked (and my friend nabbed £10 when I funded!)

Who would’ve thought that playing a few rounds of online bingo would give me the push I needed to break out of my shell (and toss those drab shoes?)

This is going to sound mad but I really believe playing online bingo changed my life for the better.

I don’t believe I would see life the way I do now if it hadn’t been for the experiences I’ve had here – the wins, the losses, the risk and the interaction…all of it!

5. Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. This sums up my bingo experience, and also my new motto for life in general.

Try your best , celebrate your  successes, take what you can from each experience but don’t dwell on your losses.

There’s always tomorrow…and who knows what jackpots or lovely surprises are in store for you at Polo Bingo…and in life!
