Bingo Strategies

Like the lottery, Bingo is solely a game of chance and a player can't do much to influence which numbers will be drawn or which Bingo card will have the winning pattern.

However, here are a few strategies to help you make your Bingo playing experience more fun and exciting!

  • Never play more Bingo cards than you can watch. You surely don't want to miss a Bingo simply because your hands are full.

  • Paper cards with lower card numbers (free space #) tend to have the numbers closer together card #1 (B-1, 2, 3, 4 & 5; I-16, 17, 18, 19 & 20). Longer games like Coveralls tend to draw numbers in spurts close together. 16, 17 then 19 and 20 come out. To win more coveralls, try to come in early and get the first set of paper cards issued. On big nights managers stock the counter with plenty cards usually the ones on top are the lowest free space number cards. Check the next coverall for yourself. Notice the flashboard. Lighted up numbers usually in sets by the 30'th number called.

  • Buy a card for a neighbor once in a while. You never know when you will want one more game when your wallet says it's time to go!

  • Share the wealth. When you win, toss out a lucky dollar to those around you. If they win a larger jackpot, they could return the lucky dollar ten fold! Especially if they win with your lucky dollar!

  • Play bingo on nights that are generally slower for the operators. Being a game of chance if there are fewer players then there are fewer cards in play. If you have as many cards as you can comfortably play and there are fewer cards in play, due to lower crowds, then you have a larger percent of the cards in play.

  • Make sure you cover up a mistake. Example you dabbed G 56 instead of 57. Use a different color to dab it with.

  • Use 2 dabbers of different colors when you play games like odd/even or 6-4-9-. It helps when the caller is checking your numbers.

Use the above mentioned Bingo strategies to make your Bingo game more fun, exciting and hopefully, profitable. Remember you may not influence which balls are drawn, but you can make the game more exciting. Enjoy Bingo and goodluck!
