Despite the many tips and pointers on how to win at Bingo, not every pulls it off. What with Bingo halls everywhere, anyone can play it any time, anywhere. With today’s technology, playing Bingo has become even more accessible.
Traditionally, Bingo is played using pre-printed cards with random numbers printed on them. Numbers will be drawn and announced by a caller. The players in turn mark or ‘dab’ the numbers on their cards as they are announced.
Many people play more cards to win. Statistically, when you play more cards, you give yourself more opportunities to mark more numbers. Likewise, when you have more cards on your table, there will be a bigger chance that the winning card is among them.
Let’s say you have 6 cards and there are 100 cards at play. That would mean you have 6 out of 100 chance of winning. That’s a 6 percent chance to get the Bingo win. Imagine playing against 100 people with 60 cards each (including yourself), your chance will drop to a staggering 1 percent. Additionally, to give yourself a push, you would need to play far more cards than you would need in a smaller assembly.
Another strategy is to play when and where fewer cards are played. If there are 100 players in a single Bingo game and each player has a card each, you have 1 percent chance to win Bingo. However, if you choose to play in a game with only 25 people, your chances increase to 4 percent.
In a Bingo hall, playing more cards than you can handle could be counter-productive. If you are new to the game, playing too many cards would give you a hard time keeping up with the caller. The chance of missing numbers that had been called already becomes greater, so instead of marking your way to a Bingo faster, you might just miss it instead. (more…)
