Ever since 2020 threw out most of our plans and predictions, the question, “Did anyone have that on their bingo card?” started to do the social media rounds, with some sites even creating 2020 bingo cards predicting events that just might happen. And while that particular year turned out to look like something the cat dragged in, the expression stuck.
So, this year, we’re setting the proverbial cat among the pigeons and making a few bingo card predictions of our own. If you’re feeling as apprehensive as a long-tailed moggie in a room full of rocking chairs, no need to worry: at Kitty Bingo we’re an optimistic lot! So, let’s start guessing the key events in 2022 that we think are bound to be the cat’s whiskers. Who knows, they might even act as inspiration if you have a mind to create your own set of cards when you play bingo on our site or with friends.
For fans of Deal or No Deal, 23 December 2016 was a dark day when the game show aired for the last time. The show was so popular that the first eight series aired six days a week and gave contestants the chance to choose one of 22 briefcases, each holding a different cash amount. The aim was to win as much as possible by either gambling on the possibility of your chosen case holding a high amount, or persuading the game’s banker to offer a large sum for the box, regardless of what was inside.
The first of our major 2022 events on the cards is a return of Deal or No Deal to our screens! In the meantime, you can play Deal or No Deal Bingo 90 right here at the most kittylicious of sites! This deal-breaking room offers players the chance to win 1-Line, 2-Line, and full-house prizes. There is also a Deal or No Deal feature prize – now who’s the cat that got the cream?
The Cleopatra series of online slots by IGT has been a player favourite since it was released in 2012. We’ve loved witnessing the high jinks and adventures amid the tombs and pyramids of Ancient Egypt in search of hidden treasures. With gorgeous graphics, an atmospheric soundtrack and on-theme symbols, what’s not to love about these slots that have brought us five-reel action, 20 paylines, and the chance to win up to 10,000 credits?
We’ve since been treated to the sequel Cleopatra II, followed by Cleopatra III, which comes with an epic 200 paylines, and multipliers attached to each win. Now we’re sticking our necks out here, and saying that 2022 is the perfect time for a Cleopatra Megaways release, which would give players around 117,649 ways to win – wouldn’t that be the cat’s pyjamas!
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar this year from 21 November to 18 December. England kicked off their qualification campaign for World Cup 2022 in March 2021 and Gareth Southgate's Three Lions sealed their place in Qatar.
This year could be the year the lads bring the cup back to England since they coasted through their World Cup qualifying group, going undefeated across the 10 games!
Ranked fifth in the world, European Championship runners-up and with no clear weak spot in the team, we have everything crossed that they’ll be above to do what they haven’t been able to do since 1966!
While Queen Elizabeth is undoubtedly one of the most famous dog lovers in the world, we can’t help but wonder… what about cats? Can you remember ever seeing Her Majesty filmed or photographed with a kitty? There have been corgis, horses, Highland cattle, swans, goats and even koalas, but not a cat in sight. While the Queen has never spoken publicly about the matter, many have guessed over the years that she suffers from a rather persistent cat allergy. The good news for the animal-loving queen, and the basis for our next prediction, is that she will be miraculously cured of her cat allergy in the year of her Platinum Jubilee!
According to experts, adults can outgrow allergies at any stage of their lives, so we’re wishing Her Majesty a speedy cure in this most auspicious year!

So far, 25 fruits have made it onto the list of superfoods, and while there have been some rumblings in recent years about the not-so-famous cousin of the currant, we’re optimistic that in one of the key events of 2022, gooseberries will finally be included on the list of super-nutritious tasty treats.
The favourite fruit of icons including Nelson Mandela, gooseberries are chock-a-block with vitamin C. They’re also thought to help support women’s hormone balance, aid food absorption, fortify the liver and act as an antioxidant.
For now, we’ll pussyfoot around the topic of whether or not gooseberries are to be included on classic fruit-machine reels (or have you already spotted them while playing slots online?). While it may not happen this year, we do believe it’s only a matter of time until this marvel of nature becomes as instantly recognisable as cherries, plums and oranges!
While it’s been exciting to take a swipe at what’s on the cards for this year, one thing we do know for sure – when you register with Kitty Bingo, you’re in for bags of fun and the chance to play bingo games through the whole of 2022. And with so many Slingo and slot titles to choose from, the forecast is… oodles of entertainment and plenty of purrs!
