Understanding Online Bingo Jackpots

Sep 4, 2008
Have you ever been to Las Vegas? If so, then you may have noticed that there all different types of gamblers. They come from all different walks of life and might have extremely different backgrounds.

Although this is true, many of them understand how to gain an edge when gambling. These people understand all about playing the odds. Some people can count cards, others are mathematical geniuses who excel at gambling due to those skills, and some people just seem to be "just plain lucky".

No matter whether you are any of these things, you can play a more valuable game of online Bingo simply by understanding online Bingo jackpots and how they work.

As with most games, playing the odds can help up your chance of winning. Although Bingo numbers are chosen totally at random, it can help to understand how to "count cards", Bingo cards that is, when playing.

For example, if there are 100 people playing with 1 card each on a website, you have a 1% chance of winning. Let's say for the sake of easy mathematics that you are playing with 3 cards, while there are only 30 cards on the site being played. You now have a 10% chance of winning the jackpot. This is a very important concept to grasp when playing online Bingo. You have a better chance of winning by playing more cards, but remember that you shouldn't play to many unless you are experienced enough to keep track of them.

On any given site, you should be able to tell how many cards are in play. According to simple statistics, it is better for you to play when there are a smaller number of players due to the fact you have a greater chance of winning. Many people find that if you play early in the morning or late at night there are less people playing. This is not always the case, as many may think this, so a good rule is to just check the websites randomly and play when you notice it is a smaller group of people.

Also, the weekends are not one of the best times to play if you are trying to find a smaller group because they seem to be flooded with those who are unavailable to play during the normal work week.

In Las Vegas or at any gambling casino around the world, you may also have noticed that the more money you spend, the more you tend to win. This is not always true, but it often seems that way. Many people who gamble will tell you that when you begin winning you should cash out and move to another slot, etc.

Others tell you that when you start winning to continue playing and spending your money because the casino, or website, will want you to continue playing, hence they will help by making sure you win.

Hmmmm...Unless you're an insider at one of these sites or casinos, we may never know! It is truly your choice and just depends on the strategy you personally have, although it is suggested by most that to win online Bingo jackpots you should move from online room to room to enhance your chances of winning.

If you are playing in one of the websites that offers progressive jackpots, the above mentioned information really doesn't apply. Progressive jackpots are exciting because they are often enormous and contain a large amount of money.

The only thing about these progressive jackpots is that it is not always guaranteed that someone will win. Once again, this is a personal choice. You may find that playing progressive jackpot Bingo is exciting because you have a chance to win such a large amount or you may prefer sticking to the lesser amounts that are guaranteed won with each game played.

The choice is yours, but if you understand the basics, you can hopefully make a more informed decision.
