And if you’re new to the world of mobile bingo or aren’t a regular player, it can sometimes feel like everyone there is talking another language.

That’s why we’ve created this: mFortune’s Bingo Dictionary!

It’s your ultimate A-Z of bingo lingo. All the abbreviations and bingo slang you may come across in any of our eleven gem-themed bingo rooms.

1tg / 2tg /3tg – One / Two / Three to go

Players use this when they’re waiting on only one, two or three numbers to cinch a win!

AFK – Away from keyboard

Your bingo buddies might use this when they’re not around to chat for a while.

BRB / BBL / BBS – Be right back / Be back later / Be back soon

These are some more examples of bingo lingo you might hear when your buddies are heading out of the game for a short while.

BLNT – Better luck next time

If your bingo buddy is 1tg and misses out, you could use “BLTN”.

When you want to let your bingo buddies and the mFortune admin you’re heading off, use “LG” to signify you’re playing your final game.

LOL / LMAO – Laughing out loud / laughing my ass off

Not just bingo lingo, you’ve probably seen and used these abbreviations loads and you’ll certainly see them being used in our bingo chatrooms!
