The rules for Lingo have been updated for season 2. The team that goes to the bonus round gets a bonus letter for winning, and also a bonus letter for each Lingo in the main game. Also, if the winning team makes a lingo on the first ball in Bonus Lingo, they win a trip, worth about $10,000. If they get a lingo using 2 or more balls, they win $5,000.

Very exciting and very awesome!!!!!
14 September 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

"Lingo" is another one of GSN's "originals!!!!!" It has longtime game show veteran Chuck Woolery hosting and a very beautiful co-hostess who not only runs the puzzles, but comes up with some very hilarious phrases to bring forth the puzzles (LOL)!!!!! Anyway, there are two teams of two regular people and they must solve a 5-letter puzzle in about five chances. Sometimes they can be really dumb and put in other words that they should know have the WRONG LETTERS IN!!!!! LOL AGAIN

Once the puzzle is solved, one person must pull a number from a bowl but... there are stoppers that must be avoided!!!!! After 2 rounds, it's a chance to play for a big jackpot!!!!! It's like the regular rounds, except there's one team and more balls (but no stoppers!!!!!) - number balls, to be exact.

"Lingo" is the modern game show with that retro flair!!!!! Watch it; if you can't, upgrade your cable or dish!!!!!
