How to Play Bingo – A Winning Online Strategy
Here at Cheers Bingo, we wholeheartedly believe that online bingo is just as much about having fun as it is about winning money. Of course, the winning does help make the playing all the more fun!
So, with that in mind we’ve been asking ourselves, is there a way that you can increase your chances of winning and in turn ‘up the ante’ on the fun stakes too?
Well, some people will say that because bingo is a game of random chance, there is no way to actually give yourself the edge like in other forms of gambling. BUT, there are a few small things that you can do to improve those random chances.
Don’t panic! You don’t have to be a maths genius or gambling guru to work out online bingo strategies! Here we’ve put together some easy to follow online bingo tips which can help you bag some cash, and, of course, make bingo more fun.
A Winning Online Bingo Strategy
Are you ready to play bingo? Are you ready to have some serious fun? Good! Buckle up for your lesson in how to play bingo, how to win and how to have fun! The first thing in your bingo strategy will be choosing the right bingo website.
So number one on our list of bingo tactics is:
#1 Use a Reputable Bingo Site
What do we mean by “reputable bingo site”? Well, we mean one that is regulated by UK gaming authorities and has a safe and secure online payment system in place. You want to make sure that all is above board, and that your financial details are safe.
Once you do, you can sit back, relax and have fun while you play. Knowing that you are in safe hands will not only bring you peace of mind, but will also be beneficial when it comes to withdrawing all your winnings by making it easy and accessible (but only accessible to you)!
How to Pick a Bingo Site
It is also worth spending a little time in researching the bingo sites and picking one that has a higher win-rate.
We have great track record of winners on our site, and in fact pay out more often than any other online bingo website. Just making a smart decision like this can increase your chances of winning from the out-set.
#2 Timing is Key!
Your best time to play online bingo will probably be the best time for thousands of other happy bingo players too, meaning that this “best time” might not actually be the best time! If you’re in a game with a hundred others then you’re all going to be in competition with each other.
As we mentioned before, bingo is a game of numbers so if you play at a time when there are less people pitted against you, your odds of winning bingo are instantly better! Late evenings all the way up to bed time is probably when most people are playing.
#3 Get Multiple Cards
Since bingo is a game of numbers (quite literally), the more you buy, the more chances you have of winning. But, of course, we encourage our players not to go beyond their means – we are all about gambling responsible. This ties in nicely with our next bingo tip, but we’ll get to that later.
Not only is it a good idea to buy multiple cards, but you can also buy into some of the lower-value games instead of the big-money jackpots (which lots of people will be tempted by… see our last point!).
This way, if you win by playing games with the lower prizes, you can buy more cards in the jackpot game and increase your chances in those games despite having more competition. See? Increasing your probability of winning bingo is as easy as 1-2-3!
#4 Don’t Get Carried Away
A very important gambling tactic that you can apply to playing bingo is to set a limit. Bingo, like any other game, is one of wins and losses. And though it might sound silly, it is really important to realise this from the beginning.
Let the losses slide; don’t be tempted to chase them with another game and another and another. That way does NOT lead to fun!
So, set yourself a limit and stick to it. By using a little discipline, you keep bingo enjoyable!
#5 Most Important Rule: Have Fun!
This might sound like an odd one to add into a list of online bingo tactics, but hear us out!
The best thing about online bingo is having fun, because what’s the point of spending your money buying into a game that you’re not enjoying? We love online bingo because, even though we aren’t in the same room as the other players, it is still super social.
For example, on the Cheers Bingo website we have loads of ‘rooms’ where you can play bingo and join in the chat with lots of other bingo enthusiasts from all over the UK. You can join in the banter and share lots of bingo winning tips!
We also have a Facebook page where you’ll not only make some more bingo-buddies, but where you can also earn 5000 loyalty points just by liking our page! You’re already winning without even trying!
By being a part of our bingo community, you’ll also be kept in the loop about our latest competitions and promotions. As the old saying goes, “You’ve got to be in it to win it!”
