When I was invited to play bingo online for charity, I was quite surprised at the invitation and I wanted to find out more information about this unique opportunity.

Before then, I had never played bingo online, but it would be for a good cause, as all money earned at the end of the experimental weeks would be donated to my charity of choice. How could I ever say no to such a wonderful invitation?

Blogging and bingo has become a wonderful way for like-minded mummies to share ideas, swap stories and ideas and connect over common ground. Now, this sense of community is extended further with bingo websites offering bloggers a fantastic chance to experience the fun and art of bingo in their community.

I was given £50 worth of credit to play on 888ladies website to raise as much money as possible for my chosen charity: Breast Cancer Care. I was pleased to hear that 888ladies already supported Breast Cancer Care.

Breast Cancer Care combines the personal experiences of people affected by breast cancer with clinical expertise, using this in a unique way to provide information and offer emotional and practical support, bring people affected by breast cancer together, campaign for improvement in standards of support and care, and promote the importance of early detection.

Unfortunately we experienced breast cancer in our family. My mother in law had breast cancer for a few years and she sadly lost her battle four years ago, so I was determined to make as much money for Breast Cancer Care as I could.

In order to get started, I had to set up an account at 888ladies website which was a simple and quick process. Once I had my username and password, I was ready to go.

There are several different rooms and you can choose how much you would like to spend on each game starting from as little as 1p. Although it was my first experience playing bingo online, I really enjoyed it and I found it easy to start playing and having fun. The rooms are very friendly and I found bingo quite relaxing after a busy day at work.

As I wasn’t playing for myself, but for a good cause, I wanted to multiply my initial credit and make it go further. I had a few good games that I won £50, I had some games that I won between £1 and £5 and I had games that I didn’t win anything.  At one point, my credit reached £100 when I had a lucky streak.

I have just been updated that we managed to raise more than £2,000 together! That’s amazing. Here is my breakdown below:

Charity: Breast Cancer Care UK

Standard Donation £50 + Bingo Win £251.52 + Instant Win 0 = Total £301.52.

My final donation of £302 has been transferred to Breast Cancer Care.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my online bingo experience with 888ladies and the chance to play for charity. It was quite exciting and I had lots of fun in the process, so thank you very much for the opportunity!

Please feel free to find out more about fundraising for Breast Cancer Care and you can also have your own experience playing bingo online at 888ladies. Have fun and Good luck!
