Bingo is a fun, carefree game that absolutely anyone can get on board with and enjoy. Recently, the game has arguably become more popular than ever before, in part thanks to the birth of online bingo websites, making it even easier and convenient to get in on the fun. Thousands of new online bingo websites are created every day, giving online players huge scope and freedom as to where and when they play. However, live bingo games are also still thriving, partly due to reimagined versions of the game, such as Bongo’s Bingo, coming onto the scene. Bingo should be enjoyed just for the sake of fun, but we can’t deny that winning is a great feeling. Whilst many people believe that bingo is merely a game of luck, there are actually number of ways in which you can up your chances of winning big.
Buy more tickets
Perhaps the most obvious way to get yourself a bingo win is by buying more tickets. Tickets can be expensive, and some games allow players to buy up a hundred tickets per game, so be sure to set yourself personal spending budgets for each game, and also bear in mind that keeping track of multiple tickets can be challenging. However, playing more tickets will of course increase your chances of getting that bingo win. Whilst one ticket gives you just one chance at winning, five tickets will give you five chances at winning. It’s simple.
Play more games
If you have plenty of time on your hands, then an easy way to increase your chances of winning is by playing more games. Again, it is important to not get too carried away with your spending, so try to set yourself a budget. If you spend a lot of time playing bingo games, then perhaps consider playing fewer tickets per game, but more games overall. This allows you to affordably play more games, but since you are investing more time into bingo, you are still increasing your likelihood of getting yourself that bingo win.
Play games at off peak times
If there are fewer competitors, then naturally your chances of success will be higher, so try to play more games where the attendance is lower. Whilst it may be a little inconvenient, look to play at less popular times, or perhaps at less popular venues. Peak times tends to be in the evenings, and on weekends. By avoiding these times and choosing to play early morning or mid-week games instead, you should optimise your chances of getting a bingo win. However, it is worth bearing in mind that these less popular venues and websites might be less popular for a good reason, and that often, if fewer people are playing, then the prizes tend to be much less substantial.
Stay on top of your numbers
It is all too easy to miss out on a bingo win by struggling to keep on top of which numbers have already been called and which haven’t. For this reason, make sure you only buy as many bingo tickets as you can realistically manage, and put a bingo dabber or masking tape to use if you are playing a live game in a bingo hall. Also be sure to minimise the number of distractions around you. Mute your phone and any other electronic devices, try to sit in a quiet part of the room, and request that family members or friends don’t disturb you whilst the game is taking place.
The Tippet Theory
Whilst this theory has never been fully proven, the Tippet theory is supported by many keen bingo players. It is based on the “perfect average” and suggests that within a game of bingo, as more numbers are called, the more these numbers will lean towards the middle. In a game where the numbers range from 1-99, the median number would be 45, and in a game where the numbers from 1-75, the median number would be 38. Test out buying tickets with more median numbers and see if it helps you win big.
Online bingo chat rooms
Online bingo chat rooms are a great way for players to socialise with other players. They give you a brilliant opportunity to make new friends and pick up new tips and tricks from players who are perhaps more experienced than you are. This will help you to understand the game better and improve your overall chances of winning, whilst simultaneously making the online bingo experience a much more fun and social one.
These tips and tricks should help you to up your bingo game and improve your chances of success. However, whilst getting yourself a bingo win is a great feeling, it is important to make sure that you don’t get too carried away. Playing for fun and enjoyment is key, and by playing responsibly, there is no doubt you will have a better bingo experience overall.
