Video review: Bingo Lingo Deciphered #costabingocalls

As I'm sure you'll know if you're a regular reader of my blog, if there's one thing we love here at The Madhouse, it's a fun blogger challenge. Just recently, I've posted a 'My Bear & Me' Selfie, had great fun making Desk Safari selfies with animal bodies and joined in with the World Cup Foodie challenge, posting recipes from playing countries on each match day. Needless to say, when Costa Bingo asked us to get involved in their Bingo Lingo Deciphered campaign, making fun little videos to represent the different bingo calls, we jumped at the chance.

Whether you’re a ‘dab’ hand with a bingo dabber or a complete novice, the videos offer a great overview of the different bingo calls and they're also hopefully as fun to watch as they were to make. 

The video for number 35 – which goes with the call ‘jump and jive’ – is a particularly great example of the sort of thing you can view. It’s fun and friendly and perfect to share with the kids if they’re interested in learning what different bingo calls mean. 

This clip is already live on YouTube but it’s not the only offering. There are actually going to be 90 videos for all 90 bingo calls put online with a number already available for viewing (the rest will go up over the next 4 weeks as part of the ongoing campaign). I did several of them so have a look and see if you can spot me being silly !

Providing a handy reference point for those looking to enjoy this popular game and also a lot of fun for the intrepid bloggers making the clips, our verdict on the bingo lingo videos is a big thumbs up!
