www.woohoobingo.com is a bingo site established in November 2009.
Not Just Any Bingo Site!
Woohoo Bingo is different from many online bingo sites. The site promotes itself as being completely free to all players and offers the potential to win prizes for free! Woohoo is sponsored by various paid bingo sites - they advertise on the site through banners, reviews and videos and this is what keeps Woohoo free. You don't even need a credit card to register so you can be sure no money will be taken from your account.
When you sign up to Woohoo, you will be asked to input a few personal details (name etc) and email. You will also be asked to pick a username which is how you will be identified on the site.You need to be over 18 and ensure your usename is not offensive in any way. You will get a confirmation email and this needs to be confirmed and you are good to go.
Everyone is given an amount of points to play with which I believe starts at 500 for new players. At 4.45am, if you are below this amount you get a boost known as a recharge. You have opportunity to boost your recharge by completing one off challenges (signing up for text alerts etc).
Woohoo also has a Facebook fan page and app. If you have the same email address registered on both Facebook and Woohoo you should be able to play on either site. Facebook Woohoo isn't as extensive as the main site but allows you to play on a reduced size screen, go into the shop etc. The fan page is where you can keep up to date on Woohoo news with occasional quizes.
When you go on the main site, you are greeted with a blue background and orange bordering. There is a whole host of options and tabs to choose from surrounded by bingo banners. Your account details including your uploading photo, points etc will be shown down one side. There is also a bit showing latest big winners, a tab to the shop/challenges etc. Up the top of the screen, you can opt for Lobby, Profile, Forum, Reviews and Help.
There are 8 bingo rooms to choose from but not all are open all day.

When you enter a room, it will load up and to the left hand side, you will see a white chat section. Here you can chat to others in the room and there names are all in a list. You can change your colour of name (never go bright though or you will get a ticking off!), you can send messages to others by clicking on their name and you can request a private chat away from main chat. Do not swear, be rude or offensive to any player as you are likely to earn a ban. Do not use capital letters as it is classed as shouting!The other side of the screen is where your bingo tickets sit. You need to click the max or arrows to get your choose amount of tickets and the limit is 24. You need to ensure you purchase in plenty of time as 30seconds prior to the game starting, the sales close and the screen changes to allow for a bingo video from a sponsor.
