Bingo is a game of chance that can be played in online bingo halls, and occasionally you will see it offered in online casinos too. There are different variations of the game, (75-ball, 80-ball, and 90-ball for example) but the basic concept for each remains the same. Each card has the same amount of randomly numbered squares, with the center square blank. Each player purchases their card, (or cards) and keeps track of which numbers called by the announcer appear on their cards.
Online bingo uses software to select each number called at random during a game. The first player to make a specific pattern on their card from the selected numbers is the winner. These patterns are vary from game to game and are predetermined before the game starts. The most common patterns are horizontal, (across the width of the card) vertical, (from top to bottom) or diagonal. Other patterns include making a cross pattern along the horizontal and vertical center of the card, double diagonal- or “X” pattern, or around the perimeter of the card.
Effective Online Bingo Strategies
Despite being a game of chance, comparable to online casino games such as craps, roulette, and blackjack, there are some strategies one can incorporate while playing online bingo to increase the odds of winning.
Playing several cards per game is a great way to increase the odds that you will win. Of course, the more cards you are playing each game, the more you are spending each game. You should also be careful not to play more cards than you can keep track of. In online bingo, the numbers are called fast, usually within just a few seconds of each other. So keeping track of nine cards can prove difficult. However, many online bingo halls have an auto-number checker that can be used to keep track of your numbers for you. This is a great advantage online bingo has over live bingo, and allows even an amateur to be competitive. Another advantage online bingo halls often offer is an “auto-bingo” function. This automatically identifies you as the winner if you don’t notice that you have completed the targeted pattern.
Set a Limit
Set a limit to the amount of money you are willing to spend each day. Online bingo is fun, and it’s tempting to just keep playing, desperately hoping that one of the next cards you buy is going to be the big winner, but don’t fall into this trap. Know your limit and stick to it. Over time, this will maximize your winnings and you will be glad you did.
Take Advantage of Online Bingo Promotional Offers
Most online bingo halls offer promotional offers such as matching your deposit by 100% or more.
