Bingo, is basically a luck driven game, but still have space for strategy and surely players who use their wits are able to use strategy to carve their wins over the long term. But how does one determine his strategy in a game that is purely driven by luck. Neither can a player effect the number that is called nor can he effect or predict the sequence of the numbers that are called after it.
He can just sit with the card in his hand and keep covering the numbers that are called, waiting for the pattern to be completed first. But this does not mean a player cannot do anything to better his odds because there are aspects of this game too, which can be effected.
The winning bingo strategy can be made up of the numbers that a player can actually affect. Let’s start with the number of cards played by a player. Considering that the numbers being called, are selected randomly and so the chance of any particular number to be called is equal to any other number’s chance. This means that any card can win. Thus we can infer that if the number of cards played by one player is more, then the chance of that player ending up as the winner is more. So, a player should play the maximum number of cards, shouldn’t he?
Well, this is not the case. The reason for this is that cards come for a price and thus a player should consider the size of the pot that is up for winning and then should calculate his odds keeping the cost of the cards that he buys, his chances are winning and the amount that he can win. A player can easily end up loosing all the money that he spends on buying too many cards and so he must be careful while making this decision.
The second number that is not governed by luck is the number of players. The lesser the number of players, mathematically, the more the odds of any one player emerging as a winning increase. And thus player should choose gatherings with lesser number of players to put his bet on. This especially applies on online bingo, where a player has a wide variety of choice of bingo groups and bingo websites to choose from and thus the best choice can be made.
