The house advantage can be a hard problem to conquer, but the wide world of bingo presents a
genuine opportunity to walk away with more money. The main idea is to spot golden
opportunities and fully invest in making them work. Here are some of those chances to make it
1. Spot a Slow News Day
Bingo games pick a jackpot amount and stick to it, no matter how many people show up to
compete. The way to sweeten the pot is to wait for a day when very few people bother to show
up, and take advantage of the improved chances for the prize.
2. Buy the Cards
Every card that someone buys improves their chance of winning. The downside is that buying
cards in the first place burns a hole in the pocket, and the only way to make up the difference is
to win the game. This is why waiting for a slow news day is so crucial. Cards should only be
purchased when the chances of winning are high.
3. Keep it Simple
To cut down the house edge, there is only one perfect method, and that is to find the most likely
route to winning and hedge all of your bets on that win. Side bets essentially mean that you are
not expecting the game to conclude in your favor, and you are looking for an extra edge. To win
at bingo, bet on just one thing: winning.
4. One-Up Your Rivals
When players shop for cards before a bingo game begins, an important opportunity arrives: The
chance to find out how many cards the other players are buying. If the other players are just
purchasing one or two cards, you may still wish to purchase more, but it is unnecessary to buy
much more than the others. If other players are buying extreme or absurd amounts of cards, then
it may be time to turn tail and leave. There is no point to competing when it is likely another
player will grab the prize.
5. Listen In
During the gameplay, listen for the case alerts on other player’s machines. The sounds indicating
that other players are drawing close should only be heard when you are also in the ballpark of
winning. Otherwise, the game is simply too crowded and it is not a good time to be placing bets.
The best opportunity in bingo is when an otherwise popular bingo locale has very few players
show up, and these players are buying an affordable amount of cards. It is a good idea to observe
the game often, not necessarily playing, just getting a sense of what a quiet day looks like. When
the competition opts not to show up, that is the time to play.
