The short answer is: “Bingo!” Sorry, it had to be done. The longer answer will probably want you desiring an answer to the questions: “How?” and “How much?” Let me explain as we go down to the halls today…
Low Costs of Entry
Bingo doesn’t discriminate. Whether you play your bingo games online through bingo sites like this one here or off, bingo requires very little money to participate. Playing bingo can pay off big time if you hit that lucky jackpot.
Bigger cash prizes – at some places this may be as five or six figures — mean it pays to try your hand with cards that have a higher buy-in requirement. Some games may require that you spend €1 per card or more to sit in. The risk is higher, but the payoff is usually much higher too.
Multiply your Probability, Multiply your Cards
Veterans to the game will tell you that they find their greatest successes with more cards because, naturally, more numbers in play increases their chances of winning.
Many people who play bingo advise that playing 6 cards at once is the ideal.
Picture this. If 100 cards are in play, and you have 6 cards, your chances of winning are 4 in 100, or 6 percent.
Of course, you can play as few or as many cards as you like. Just make sure your dauber is quick enough, and that you do it responsibly…
You’re not at the Casino…
Related to the second point, is that bingo, unlike progressive jackpot games, guarantees betters odds.
In the latter a winner is not guaranteed. So, the odds of winning a progressive jackpot depend more on the difficulty of a covering pattern in the number of calls.
The odds are so slim in some progressive games (like Roulette) that it may be days, weeks, or months before somebody wins.
Here are some final tips to boost your Bingo haul:
The fewer Cards in the Crowd, the greater the Odds
Since odds are dictated by the number of cards in play in a game, a game with poor attendance can work to your advantage: it means less competition for the jackpot, and, legally, bingo halls have to award the prizes they advertise irrespective of attendance.
Heavy rain deters crowds. Playing at off-peak times (during the day) helps too as does attending more rural halls.
Long-time visitors will know the sessions that are quieter than others. Quiet times might be midweek, mid-afternoon, late-night, or holidays when everyone leaves town or is with their family.
If you really want to win, why not go to bingo at 1:00 a.m.? I must be careful not to let the game be rumbled. An uptick in groggy gamers attending at this time may also mean that any advantage you had will be lost. Choose wisely.
It is also possible that there may be low attendance because the jackpots aren’t great. It would be a good idea to do a little research before you settle on a game
No two Cards should be alike
It should be the case that each card you have will feature any number more than once, so every single card will have the same odds of winning a game.
Choose numbers that don’t duplicate the numbers you already have on other cards. In choosing cards with different numbers, you are maximising your chances.
