Type “CHECK” or “c” or similar when you get a check
If you can’t hear any sound: On mobile, touch the video and make sure your phone media volume is up. On Desktop, make sure the volume bars () are all fully blue!
e-Bingo books can be got from firstname.lastname@example.org up to 2pm on the day of the game. Just email us and let us know who will be playing.
If you do not hear back from us, please check your ‘SPAM’ / ‘JUNK’ folder, as it could be gone in there.
The book is 3 pages (3 different colour sheets on an A4 page), which you can print out OR if you do not have a printer, you can make your own book by copying the numbers out on a blank sheet of paper. Make sure to write out the panel numbers too as, most importantly, you will need it if you check!
You can use the same sheets each week, so you can print out or make up a few copies of each, if you like, when they are sent to you.
Please note that Forum Home Bingo is just for FUN and therefore we will, unlike normally, be quite relaxed with the rules and we will call the numbers slowly.
Anyone of any age can play and you do NOT have to check on the last number called, but the winner will be the FIRST to on-screen claim a check, that is then validated as being correct, by the Caller, whose decision shall be final.
To claim a check you must type “CHECK” or even just “C” in the chat comments that will be with the live feed (details will be given how to do this on the night, before the bingo session starts).
As internet (broadband/wi-fi) connections and speed varies greatly from place to place, we cannot guarantee it will run smoothly all the time for everyone and we cannot accept any responsibility for missed numbers or checks, so we do ask you to bear this in mind when playing Forum Home Bingo if technical difficulties are experienced.
Each of the three games played on the night will be for ONE LINE (any line with ALL FIVE numbers marked off) and then for any TWO LINES ON THE ONE PANEL (any panel with two lines of five numbers marked off) followed by a FULL HOUSE (any panel with ALL FIFTEEN numbers marked off).
We will give a prize (sheet/book) for the three winning checks each game, but they will only be valid if used by an over 18 in Forum Waterford within a month of Forum Bingo reopening.
