Finding The Best Strategy For Bingo Games

May 14, 2008
Are you tired of playing your favourite game over and over, only making minimal wins and generally just losing your money and your confidence? You aren't the only one!

Despite all the positive aspects of bingo games, many people become disheartened when they don't bring the big bucks home more often. And it seems so simple!

Other people playing the game seem to win periodically, like they've figured out a way to beat the system and virtually play bingo for a living. In some cases, they may really have beaten the system.

Mathematics and Bingo

Joseph Granville, mathematician and stock market enthusiast, has been calculating the odds of a bingo win given the number of squares on a card, random number selection odds and the number of cards in play.

In fact, he's come up with a winning strategy that is unorthodox in many ways but that keeps coming in with the wins - so if you are on the verge of giving up your favourite hobby, give this method a try! You can find specified instructions published by Granville himself, but there are a few pointers to keep in mind based on his research on probability.

Winning Cards

The most important thing affecting your game is the number of cards you play. Chances are, you're completely aware of this but are using this knowledge in the wrong way. It seems to make sense that the more cards you have in your possession, the more likely it is that one of them is a winner. After all, there are more numbers on more cards, right? According to Granville, however, this more-is-more method is what's stopping many players of bingo games from taking home big money. In fact, when playing bingo games with lots of cards, the chances of going home with a small win may be increased but the jackpot often gets further away.

Here is where we just need to be trusting and not argue with a mathematician! Granville agrees that using more than one card is advantageous, but that overloading your playing area is not actually the way to go. Who knew? In fact, Granville says, the key to winning bingo games is purely in card selection.

Based on the numbers on your card, he can conclude which set of numbers is more likely to win and which will fall short - in mathematical terms there are certain patterns to the numbers on your card that determine higher or lower odds for them being selected in conjunction with one another.

Vive le Difference!

The most important key to winning your bingo games is to concentrate on number selection when you can. In all probability, the numbers chosen at random will have different digit endings, and this is what can set apart winning cards from the useless ones. Go for a card full of numbers whose ending digits are different!

In most online bingo games, you can view the cards before you select them for purchase, so give them a little scan before you check them for purchase and see if this makes any difference in your results.
