Strategy, Hints and Tips for Playing Bingo
Here are a few hints and tips to help you when you're playing bingo.
Anyone can be a bingo player and everyone can be good at it. Bingo is a universal game that can be played by people of all ages. Even though it is a gambling game, it is considered to be in the category of ‘soft gaming'.
Hints and Tips for Playing Bingo Online
There is no real strategy for playing bingo online, as it's simply a matter of luck. However, before you start playing for money it's always a good idea to familiarise yourself with how a particular online bingo game works, and what the payout structure is by playing a few free games of bingo first.
Most reputable online casinos and bingo sites will allow you to play either for free or for money.
Money management is also an important part of playing online bingo. Set yourself a limit and stick to it – and never bet more than you can afford to lose. Although bingo is a low-stake game, keep an eye on how much money you are spending, and don't be tempted to play “just one more game” once you have reached your limit.
It's important to remember that the main reason for playing online bingo should be for fun, not for profit – that way you won't be disappointed if you don't win every time.
Hints and Tips for Playing Live Bingo in a Bingo Hall
Playing live bingo in bingo halls is more complicated than playing online bingo, and although it is still mostly down to luck there are a few things you need to remember if you want to maximise your chances of winning.
In live bingo it is important to act quickly. If you are too slow, you might miss out on a called number and therefore a win. Given that an average bingo game in the UK takes between four and four and a half minute to complete, and that the average speed of British bingo caller is 23 numbers per minute, you need to be able to find the numbers as quickly as possible before the next number is being called.
It is therefore a good idea to spend time getting familiar with the cards and the way in which they are numbered, i.e. the first column contains the numbers from 1 to 15, and the second column contains the numbers from 16 to 30 and so on. By doing this, you will be able to locate the numbers being announced by the caller much faster and therefore make sure you have marked off all the right numbers.
It's also important to understand the terminology used in live bingo games. If you know them you don't have to spend time finding out what on earth is going on while playing bingo and you can therefore concentrate on the game and your numbers instead.
Never play more cards than you can watch or you'll end up going crazy when trying to keep up with all the announced numbers.
Sometimes it's a good idea to bring sticky tape – yes, you read it right – because some games are played on single strips bought separately it's therefore easier to keep track of them if they are taped together instead of flying around in the table while you mark off called numbers.
Make sure you highlight a mistake on your card when you know you've made it. It's a disappointing feeling finding out you shouted “Bingo!”, only to find out you forgot about the mistake you made earlier.
Understanding Bingo Odds
Calculating odds in bingo is theoretically very simple -- it's the number of cards you're playing divided by the total number of cards in play. So if 100 cards are in play, and you have 4 cards, your chances of winning are 4 in 100, or 4 percent. The trick is being able to count how many cards are in play in a game. You can do a head count and multiply that number by what you think is the average number of cards per person, but this can be easier said than done.
However, these odds don't apply to progressive jackpot games. Remember that in most progressive games, a winner is not guaranteed. So, the odds of winning a progressive jackpot depend more on the difficulty of covering the pattern in the predetermined number of calls. The odds are so steep in some progressive games that it may be weeks or even months before somebody wins.
Which Numbers Come Up Most Often?
Everyone wants to know: "What's the secret to knowing which balls will come up most often?" The answer is simple. No single ball has a greater chance of appearing in a game than any other ball, provided that the balls are manufactured correctly, that no one is tampering with the balls, and that the blower machine is loaded with a complete set of 75 balls.
Think about it. If you flip a coin three times, it may come up heads twice and tails once. For that extremely small slice of time, it's true that heads is coming up more often. But if you flipped that coin for three hours straight, the laws of probability say that the number of heads and tails counted would be almost identical.
Now, let's suppose that, in a two-hour bingo session, N-31 comes up four times while N-42 is never called. It would appear that everybody who wants to win should collect cards that contain N-31. Hold your horses! Over the course of a dozen sessions, or two dozen sessions, there's not going to be much difference at all between the number of times N-31 is called versus the number of times N-42 is called. It's just a coincidence that one was called more than the other for that short period of time.

Thanks you two for the tips
Most chat rooms does not allow and cussing or being vulgar. There are a few that have adult chat rooms if that is what you like. You gave some very good advice on Etiquette. When you treat pepole the way you like to be treated you will have fun and everyone in the room will have fun. Most of all respect the CM's they have a difficult job!
Etiquette for bingo chat rooms.
Our behavior at all times is expected to be exemplary. And online bingo chat rooms are no different than anywhere else we go.
First of all, when joining a bingo site, make sure that your nickname wont be offensive to anyone that may be in that chat room.
Conversations of a sexual nature, or with cuss words do not belong in a chat room.
Dont type in capital letters, these are reserved for the chat managers, and can be considered as yelling by other players.
Always be respectful of your chat mates. Congratulate them when they win and say thank you when they congratulate you.
Remember that other players are there to play and relax and really dont want to hear gossip or personal problems. If you have a friend you want to talk to about something personal, use the private chat if it is available where you are playing.
