Don't Go Broke Playing Bingo

Apr 1, 2008
If you want to get ahead in the game of bingo then why not follow our five easy strategies that could have you on your way to winning the jackpot in no time.

Play More Than One Card
If you want to improve your odds while playing bingo then you need to play more than one card per game. Yes, it's more expensive but it significantly increases your chances of winning and you can choose the number of cards you play depending on a couple of things.

Look at the number of people playing the same game, the cost of each card and the size of the jackpot involved. Experts suggest that four cards is the optimal amount to play with in any given game.

Play Games With Less Players
Clearly there is a link between the number of players in a game and your chances of winning. The less people that are playing the better your odds of scooping the jackpot. However, given that most jackpots are based on the number of players you may have to be content with plenty of little pots rather than one big jackpot.

Try choosing games that are being played during the quieter hours of the day and look for games with fixed jackpots.

Don't Go Broke
This might sound like a pretty simple tip, but remember that you can't win when you have no money to play with! Set yourself a daily or weekly amount of money you can comfortably afford to lose playing bingo. Let's say you can comfortably afford to lose $20 a month without breaking into a sweat, so set yourself a weekly limit of $5.

Using a system like this will help you control how much you are spending and allow you to continue playing even when luck is not on your side. This way you'll be able to play through the dry spells and not get stuck in them. The longer you stay in the game, the better your chances of landing a big win!

Chase Wins - Not Loses
If you find yourself on a lucky streak then slowly increase the number of bingo cards you're playing. Because you can play bingo for low stakes you can steadily build up a healthy bank roll, if you start the day with $5 and end the day with $20, then bank $10 (your original $5 plus $5 profit) and gamble the remaining $10 on higher priced bingo cards which carry bigger payout's.

Don't Use Your Own Money
You can't really lose if you're playing with someone else's money! Now I'm not suggesting you go and steal your partners credit card, but remember that you can loads of free dosh from many online bingo sites. Foxy Bingo is giving away $10 completely free to all new players, and Paddy Power Bingo is offering $3 totally free! There great offers and you don't have to deposit any of your own money to claim the free cash.
