The Definitive Bingo Guide


Is there a strategy for winning bingo?

Bingo is a game of pure chance, but that doesn’t mean we can’t throw in a small bingo tutorial here for improving your chances. Most common strategies for winning include playing outside of peak hours, in less crowded rooms and halls, as well as purchasing as many tickets as you can afford. At online bingo places, you can always check the game schedule and how many people are playing the next game, so if there’s a smaller crowd, your odds slightly improve.

What are the rules of bingo?

The game starts with players purchasing tickets that have bingo numbers on them. Then, a draw starts, during which players mark any drawn numbers they have on their tickets. The goal is to cover your numbers in a specific pattern (depending on the game) and quickly call “Bingo!” to claim the prize.

What are some bingo patterns?

The most common bingo pattern is a line, either horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. In some bingo games, you’ll be required to complete multiple lines to win, while others require just a single line. Games that use square tickets often have more unusual patterns, like crosses, corners, or alphabet letters.

What numbers hit the most in bingo?

As mentioned in our bingo guide, the rules of the game imply that the numbers drawn are completely random. There aren’t some “magical numbers” you should be looking for on bingo tickets, or precise data on which numbers show up more than others. Every bingo player has their own favourite numbers and just picks tickets in accordance with that.
