Getting started

First step is to create an account, which is quite self explanatory even if you were alive when World War 2 ended. It’s easy throughout the rooms, but I must say I particularly fancied the registration process at MariaBingo. You fill in your name, postal address, email address and phone number and you choose a password.

My internal memory isn’t exactly top notch, so I guess a combination of “easy to remember” and “hard to figure out for anyone else,” would be the recommended approach. Should you forget your password, you can always count on assistance from the bingo site. Their password assistance is free and easy, like any other assistance, which I am very happy about, he he.

The funny part of the registration process is choosing a bingo nickname or an alias. This is the name which is shown when you are logged into the bingo rooms. Naturally I chose Granny as my bingo nickname. Some copycat had already chosen this name in some of the bingo rooms, so I settled for the available Grizzly_Granny or Grizzly_Gran in the rooms where only 12 nickname characters are allowed.

I will get back to the differences between the different bingo rooms and which ones I preferred, but for starters I can recommend the rooms found here.

In some of the bingo rooms you need to download the bingo client, while in others you can play directly in the “browser” as all the geezers call it.  The downloadable clients are perhaps a little more fancy, with more options and features, while the browser clients save you some hard drive space.
