Ready to Party:
You snow the drill by the now. Virtual Christmas Bingo is a game of chance in which each player matches their numbers to the ones the host shouts out. However, this is bingo with a twist…
Crimbo Bingo doesn’t work with numbers, it works with songs and more specifically, CHRISTMAS SONGS! Sleigh, what?!
Yes, you heard right. We’ll be playing some of the very best Christmas songs *cue Fairytale of New York* and some of the downright cheesiest! So if you’re looking to party this December, you’ve come to the right place.
Spread over two festive rounds, guests will be playing for one line, two lines and a full house. We have guaranteed prizes to give away to the fastest bingo calls, so it really is all to play for in this Virtual Christmas Bingo.
We’ll share a QR code with guests at the start of the event which will provide them with an interactive bingo card accessible via their Smartphone/Tablet/PC. If you have any problems please view the FAQ’s section at the bottom of this post.
