Bingo Cams are extremely proud of their Celebrity Chat Host feature and it has to be said that it is proving very popular with players at the site.
The latest took place last night with X Factor favourite Chico and I thought I would go along and take a look at how it all worked and join in the fun. I made my deposit just in time and took advantage of the extra bonus funds that the site often offers before these events and settled down for the 7.15pm start time – I even took the plunge and switched on my webcam!
At first I thought Chico had decided not to bother as time ticked on and there was no sign of him, but then just before 7.30pm he appeared with a big fanfare. He was wearing an ‘I Love Bingo Cams’ t-shirt, but I thought he would have been in full entertainment mode and in something resembling stage clothes. But no, it was all very informal.
It was pretty much a question and answer free for all as the bingo games were running. Players typed in questions and everyone could hear what Chico was saying thanks to the live feed. He did handle all the chat very well, as feeds from three rooms would have been running in front of him.
There was not much of Chico the showman last night, just Chico the very nice man.
I also learned something else about Bingo Cams last night that I think is worth passing on. Many people have expressed reservations about the private chat feature, but being in private chat is a requirement of being picked to play the Bouncing Bonus game to earn extra bingo bonus funds.
I got invited to a private chat and I must admit I thought twice about accepting. However, I did and do you know what happened? The player wished me good luck and I wished her good luck back and that was about it. We then just left the private chat window open and hoped to be picked for the bouncing bonus. I was too – just the once – but I didn’t win! It was that innocent. I tried it again myself a little later and did the same thing. I invited another player, they accepted. We exchanged some pleasantries and that was it.
Of course, some people might chat more and it would be a great way to get to know someone and make new friends, but it is just as simple to exit the chat as to stay in it.
Two lots of £500 were given away in guaranteed jackpots, Chico turned out to be a genuinely nice bloke and everyone had a lot of fun. Look out for the next Celebrity Chat Host event and give it a go or take the £5 free no deposit bonus now and try Bingo Cams for yourself straight away!
