# Bingo Online – Strategic Playing

Bingo, no matter how you look at it, is always going to be a game of chance; there will never be a way in which you can predict the next number to be called. There are though ways in which you can use the system of bingo to turn the odds of the game in your favour. Since the game is very simplistic there are tools that you can use to gain winning techniques. To win at bingo you need to match the numbers called out with those on your card.

The first strategy that you should start to apply is to look at how you choose your cards. Every site that you use will offer a different selection of cards. Some sites may allow you only three or four cards while others will offer you a much larger variation. You will have to select the amount of cards that you want to use carefully. When the number is called out you will only have a certain amount of time to find that number and mark it down. If you have too many cards you will be unable to do this accurately.

One of the reasons that you are not going to want to have many cards is if you are spending all your time looking for your numbers you are not going to be able to observe what is going on in the game that can help you win. Most players use as many bingo cards as they can, so as to increase their chances of winning. Playing with fewer cards will actually allow you a higher chance at winning big.

The second strategy that you are going to be looking at deals with the theory of probability, which means the chance of any ball being called. Every bingo game has 75 balls, meaning that every ball has a 1 in 75 chance of being called.

We are able to determine the accuracy of randomness through three simple tests; one is that the balls with numbers ending in one, two, three and so on are all called equally, higher and lower numbers are called equally and odd and even numbers are called equally. We can use this same theory of probability to then estimate the likelihood of specific balls being called.

To be able to do this you are going to have to be paying attention to what is going on during the first few balls being called in the game. If, for example, the first ball to be called is B13 then the chances of another ball being called ending in 3 is going to be significantly less. Then on the second call of the game if the ball drawn is G58 then the chances again of a ball ending in 8 are much lower. This means that the chances of every other number not ending in either a 3 or 8 being called will be much higher. To accurately estimate which of the balls may be called next you will have to be paying attention to the numbers being called, especially during the first few calls of the game.
