Different games and geography locations use different dictionaries. Pick the page which uses the right dictionary for the game you are playing. Our home page now uses Words with Friends dictionary.

Enter all your tiles in the top Letters box in the word finder and click on Submit or simply press return. Do you get some seven letter words in response. If yes, AWESOME! In order to make bingo, see if any of the bingo words would fit adjacent to a current word on the board.
If your 7 letter bingo word won't fit, try putting in one wild character ("?" or SPACE " ") and check what 8 letter words can be formed. Once you have found the eight letter words, check if the additional needed character is "open" on the board for you to place rest of the 7 letters.
If you want to use a particular letter (or a set of letters) on the board in a precise location of the new word, e.g. right at the beginning or at the end, use the "Prefix" and "Suffix" features. E.g. a "S" in suffix implies find only those words which end with a S.
"Prefix" and "Suffix" take any number of wild characters ("?" or " ") to designate a placeholder, so, e.g. if you want to make a word whose third letter is T, you can enter following in the prefix location: ??T (note that T also needs to be entered in the main set of letters). Or lets say you want "M" to be the second to last letter in the word you want to use, you can enter following in the suffix location: M?.
If you want words of a specific size or higher just enter those many ?s in the Prefix location, and select "and". So, ???? in Prefix, with "and" selected for using both Prefix and Suffix, will generate words of length 4 or higher.
