PC or Woke Lingo
For some online or regular bingo players, the old bingo terminology was not PC enough, and could even have been considered either insulting or old fashioned. This is the origin of ‘woke’ or PC bingo.

Vital Bingo Terminology
However, even though some of the regular calls may have been changed, some of the terminologies have stayed the same. Below are some of the details:
When you have 0 balls as part of the game, what this means essentially is that you are playing the game of traditional 90 balls bingo which also happens to be the most popular variation in the UK.
The bingo card is an essential piece of kit that you are going to need when you want to play bingo. This is an important piece of paper or card that comes with the numbers you are playing with clearly typed out on it. However, in the game of online bingo, this card is represented by a virtual one instead.
The bingo pot is a name used in reference to the prize fund. Make sure that you check this out before you decide to play so that you are certain that you want to win the bingo prize on offer. There are some players who might not think it is worth it if the amount is small, but that is always your choice to make.
Drawn balls is a term that means that the game is about to start. Here, the first number would have been drawn, and the bingo game is running.
These are the bingo terms that you must know, and they are as easy to remember as they are fun to call.
