Although bingo is pretty much a random game of chance there are a few things players can do to increase the odds in their favor. Online bingo is one of the most affordable games online. Even better most online bingo sites offer free bingo games so players can test the site’s game software and hone their skills. In addition to free bingo most online bingo operators offer very generous welcome bonuses for first time players. Usually these are a percentage of the first deposit and bonuses of 300% to 500% are now common thanks to industry competition. Just about every bingo site offers re-deposit bonuses which can help players to stretch their bingo dollars, pounds and euros. By taking advantage of bonuses and special promotions online bingo players can keep costs low and hopefully win some serious bingo cash. Here are a few tips to increase the odds while playing online bingo.
Players should always avoid crowded bingo rooms. A higher number of players lessen the chances of winning. There is one drawback; since most jackpots are based on the number of players the prizes will be smaller. Look for bingo games with guaranteed jackpots. Players should save their bonus money for big money games where cards are more expensive. At many bingo sites cards can be purchased for as little as a penny.
Every bingo card that is purchased is a chance to win. Many online bingo players will purchase as many cards as possible. The auto daub feature available at most online bingo sites will accurately mark the cards. Players with a large number of cards in smaller games have a greater chance of winning. One expert says that given the number spread on the average bingo card cards with numbers close to thirty eight have a greater chance of winning.
One expert advises players that are playing several cards to make sure the cards do not contain too many similar numbers. If the card numbers are different then there is a better chance of one of the cards matching the called numbers.
Like any other gambling game bingo players need to keep track of their bingo bankroll. Players should never spend more than they can afford and should never try to make up for losses by spending more. Players should only use disposable income to play any online gambling games.
A survey taken last year showed that about 93% of all online bingo players reported a significant win at some point in their playing ‘careers.’ Online bingo provides players with hours of fun and entertainment and a chance to meet people from around the world.
