Improving Your Bingo Skills

by Administrator 12. February 2016 15:05

Playing bingo is a fun social activity that offers a great source of recreation. Since the rules are fairly simple, it is a popular game amidst all age groups. Though winning depends on chance, there are some tips which can improve your opportunities of winning. Some of these have been discussed below:

  • Play with concentration: It is important to be attentive at all times while playing the game. Look at all your cards and combinations carefully. Keep your distractions (phones, friends etc.) away so you can be all ears all through the bingo session.
  • Arrive early: It is better to arrive a little early and spend some time in choosing a seat. If you wish to be closer to the caller, under the lights, by the window, then reaching early will not make you harried for your preferred seat. It also allows you to choose the cards with your preferred numbers, thus making the game easy and interesting for you.
  • Do not take too many cards: Playing with multiple cards will mean scanning all of them each time a number is called out. It requires too much concentration if you have taken more cards than what you can manage. Imagine searching for a number in your cards and the caller moves to the next one!
  • Mark the cards correctly: It is important to keep a good dauber and mark the called numbers correctly. There are different patterns in every card and if you are playing with manageable number of cards, you will be able to identify the numbers and do the markings correctly.
  • Do not talking during play: If you are talking too much (with friends or people around) during the game, you may miss important announcements and even numbers. Your noise may also disturb others players’ game. Be quiet and concentrate on your cards.
  • Do not play during peak hours: One way to improve your chances of winning is to avoid playing during peak hours. This way, there will not be too many claimants for the prize plus there will be fewer distractions.
  • Become experienced: Visit a bingo hall regularly and play a lot. Playing regularly will help you hone your skills- you will mark faster and search for numbers quicker. Talk to regular players/visitors and gain tips on how they have become pro in the game.

Bingo halls are places to enjoy and interact with fellow players. Keeping the above tips in mind, you can enjoy playing bingo. Do not be stressed about only winning. Concentrate on the tricks that make the game more fun.

Bingo is a popular game in the US. Being a game of luck, bingo is often associated with many superstitions. Players often rely on an array of lucky charms, which they believe will bring luck and help them hit the jackpot. Here are some of the common lucky charms that most people use while playing the game.

  • Lucky seats: If a player wins consistently, he often considers his seat lucky and prefers to sit at that particular spot every time he plays the game. If you are new to a bingo hall, you may notice that some players insist on sitting on a specific seat. The players prefer to be comfortable and relaxed when they are playing bingo.
  • Number Seven: Number seven has always been linked to good fortune and prosperity; therefore, people prefer to play with cards that include this number. Many players even keep a slip with number seven in their pocket to bring good luck. A lot of them also buy pens, magnets, jewelry, key chains and other accessories with number seven.
  • Four leaf clovers: A four-leaf clover is considered lucky and carried by most players when they visit a bingo hall. The three leaves represent hope, faith, love and the fourth one, which is quite rare, represents luck. People in the past believed that the clover with four leaves has magical powers and it protects from diseases.
  • Golden Fortune cat: A bingo lucky charm that is hugely popular in Texas is the golden fortune cat. The cat has a moving hand that knocks back and forth, whereas, other parts are stationary. The model is available in an array of colors shapes and sizes. Keeping the cat on your table while playing may bring you fortune and help you win a jackpot.
  • Cinnamon sticks: The cinnamon sticks are also a lucky charm, so, next time when you visit the bingo hall, keep a few cinnamon sticks in your pocket. These are believed to bring in good luck in cases where money and coincidence are involved. The charm can make you hit the bingo jackpot and win huge amounts of money.
