Due to the amount of fun and the cash prizes offered, the online bingo community is growing at a phenomenal rate. Newcomers and returning hands are joining the online in droves and upping their game for a chance at some serious money without having to leave home. It has become such a success that a major UK newspaper printed an article with tips from traditional bingo halls, where bingo has been a favorite British pass time for decades.
The first thing that Daily Star recommends is to limit the sites you visit. Like traditional bingo players, you need to stick to a few favored sites to get to know people in the community, and from there you will be offered lots of advice and tips on how to play that site.
The newspaper also recommends that you play with more than one card to increase your chances of winning. The more cards you have in the round, the more chance you have a bagging a big prize. There was a caution with this tip, and that was to know your limits. If you have too many cards you have to be able to work all of them at the same time. You can’t win unless you can effectively mark them as the ‘caller’ comes up with the ‘numbers’.
“Eyes on the prize’, is a well-known saying, but ‘Eyes on the size’ is one mantra you need to remember. It’s easy to see the jack pot numbers and be ‘wowed’ into thinking that that’s the room for you. The paper encouraged gamers not to be distracted by the ‘Big Money’ as the reason the pot is big, is that the game room is very full. Choosing a room that is a quarter or half full greatly increases the chances of winning a good mix of prizes.
The best piece of advice offered to all bingo lovers everywhere was to not let a losing streak make you lose your love of the game. Walk away and take some time to clear your head before returning and getting straight back into your winning ways.
