Bingo Tips and Tricks

The fact that bingo is a game of chance makes it easy and enjoyable to play and means that you can strike it lucky even if you are completely new to the game and are surrounded by lifelong veterans. The flipside is that it can be difficult to win consistently, but there are still a few bingo tips and tricks that players can use to get the most out of their experience.

The most important thing to remember is that you need to go in with the right mindset and think of playing bingo as a way to have fun rather than make money. A lot of regular players go to their local club or log on to their favourite site to socialise first and foremost, viewing any success as a bonus. In bingo, it is impossible to win every time, so you shouldn’t think it is always going to be your day.

Money management is also essential. If you decide on a bingo budget beforehand, whether daily, weekly or monthly, and stick to it, then you can just relax and enjoy the games instead of worrying that you need a Full House or jackpot win to cover expenses.

Of course, a winning session is the preferred outcome, so it is worth doing everything you can to maximise your chances, and these simple bingo hints could see you pick up some great rewards while still having fun with your friends.

Know the Rules

Knowing the rules of bingo will not only help you enjoy playing the games - it could also help you win. For example, if someone is awarded a prize when they shouldn’t be, like if they haven’t shouted loudly enough to be heard but are then given the pot anyway, you have the right to cite the rules. You might not be very popular if you are too fussy, but speaking up when it’s necessary could be the difference between winning and finishing empty-handed.

Don’t Be Shy

If you do win, make sure to shout loudly, because otherwise the rules dictate that you will lose your money if the next number is called out before the game is stopped. Likewise, there is nothing wrong in speaking up to ask the bingo caller to slow down if you think they are going too quickly.

It may be that you’ve bought too many tickets to keep track of throughout the game, or just go a bit slower than the rest, but it could also be that the caller is new or just has got the pace wrong, and other players may also be struggling. They may refuse, but there is no harm in asking.

Prizes are awarded for being the first to mark off one line, two lines and all three lines, which is known as a Full House. Find out more details at the 90-ball bingo page.

Stay Focused

The friendly atmosphere of bingo is one of the main attractions for many players, but if you want to land prizes you will need to concentrate. If you switch off for a moment, you might miss a number being called, which could lead to missing out on a prize. Pay attention to the pattern on your card and keep your eyes open if you are sitting close enough to the caller. You may even be able to see the number before it is announced. Just be aware that you can’t yell out that you have won until after the number has been called.

Buy More Tickets

As every ticket has an equal chance of producing a winning pattern, the only sure-fire way to increase your chances is to buy more tickets. Playing with more tickets will obviously cost more and require you to scan each one more quickly, but the more you play the easier you will find it to work with several bingo tickets at a time.

Purchasing more tickets is especially worthwhile online, where the auto daub feature means that you don’t even have to worry about not being able to keep up with the caller. There are various other factors which can make playing online bingo even more rewarding; have a look at the online bingo strategy section to learn more.

While bingo is ultimately all about luck, the tips and hints that come with experience will help players decide how they wish to take part and which games they enjoy playing the most, which keeps things fun even if the prizes don’t come rolling in all the time.
