What Are The Odds Of Winning At Online Bingo?

Aug 25, 2008
Chances on winning at online Bingo vary with certain games played. It's a matter of looking at the total number of players or more importantly cards played in one particular game; as well, the particular game being played.

For example, if you join a game that has approximately 500 cards being played and you are the holder of 10 of those cards- you have a 2% chance of winning.

Generally, the fewer cards or players- the greater your odds. A person who joins a game with 10 cards or more cards should also take into account the possibility of missing a number. This is important if you are trying to workout the probability of winning on high, low, odds or even numbers. The most common mistake in Bingo is trying to play too many cards; it's often unmanageable; especially when your in a Bingo chat room. There's talking and laughing, as well, as game play going on; so be sure you can manage your cards or else- odds won't matter.

Many people find that joining a game in progress increases their odds; this is true. If a person has the time and ability; they can figure the odds based upon the number of calls made and the numbers chosen. Based upon the law of probability, if more even numbers are called in the first 30 calls, most likely- you need to select a card with a majority of odd numbers. There are more of them to be called upon in the future. If you join a game from the start- there are equal amounts of odd, even, high and low numbers- your best chance for winning in this circumstance is choosing a card with equal amounts of even, odd, high and low numbers.

When talking odds of winning; it's always better to choose a good card based upon what has already been played; the more numbers played- you can beat the odds by choosing a card that features numbers in favorable odds.

To give an example, lets say there has been 17 calls made, 6 of those calls are numbers in the G column, 2 are from the B column, 2 are from the I column, 3 are from the N column and 2 are from the O column; the odds are- G numbers will not be called again for a while, there are less of them remaining, therefore the odds are another number will be called; according to the law of probability- most likely a number from the B, I, or O column.

If you're one of those people that only play online games that have favorable odds; most likely, online Bingo isn't going to be your game of choice. Oh sure, there's mathematical theories that support online Bingo; but a lot of the game is just pure and simple- luck!

If you truly enjoy the game, consider playing at one of the free bingo websites; that way- you can practice the theories above without losing any cash.
