5 Strategy Tips to Use for Winning at Bingo

When it comes to games of chance, who doesn’t want a surefire way to turn the odds of winning in their favor?  While there are never guarantees of winning any casino game, there are a few strategies that online bingo players use that some have found to help them win more often. Here are some tips that we gathered from regular online bingo players.

Play in Games with Fewer Players

There are days of the week and times of day that are considered peak hours that people like to play bingo at a bingo hall. Those times tend to be during the early evening hours and on weekends and holidays. There is less competition for the ‘Bingo’ when playing during off-hours.

Play More Cards

Most successful players who play both online and in brick and mortar casinos will tell you to play more bingo cards. This strategy can be likened to those who play more than one machine while playing slots online. While you can’t choose your cards online, you can select your own cards in a physical casino.

Consider the Odds

Bingo has traveled far beyond its humble beginnings of being classified among the educational toys to stimulate kid’s brains. Bingo has been seriously studied by statisticians like L.H. C. Tippett and financial analyst Joseph. E. Granville. Tippett recommended during a game of 90 ball bingo that the majority of numbers that are called would be close to the median number of 38.

Granville had his own theory about 75-ball bingo, which is most popular in the U.S. His theory suggests that to increase the chances of winning, a player should select tickets that have an almost equal distribution of odd and even numbers. Given that with online bingo games that are played today, his strategy is more limited because random number generators create far too many possibilities.

Even so, there are many successful bingo players that do apply Tippett’s and Granville’s technique.

Be Aware of  How You Spend Your Money and Your Time

Casino games, whether online or in an actual casino can be exciting – especially when you’ve got a winning streak going. When you’re caught  up in that excitement, you can easily lose track of how much cash you have to play with. Whenever you play any game of chance, be sure to carefully consider how much money you can afford to lose and how much time you play. For online games, you can increase the amount of time that you are able to play by sticking to games with a lower card buy-in cost and playing promotional games that allow you to be betting with the casino’s money rather than dipping into your own funds.

Think About What to do When you Win

If you play long enough and often enough, you will more than likely win.  It’s a good idea to consider what to do with your winnings when that happy day arrives.  Many players in brick and mortar casinos recommend that you take your winnings and walk away. Other experienced players advise to only gamble with the original amount that they came in with and either treat themselves to something they really want like a vacation or simply put their winnings in their personal bank account.

While there are some that might swear by these tried and true bingo strategies, Lady Luck can still be a bit fickle. If you keep at it, however, you will find that these strategies can actually work for you.
