What is Bingo?

Casino bingo is an exhilarating casino game that can involve rooms full of people competing against one another with the same ultimate objective: to get bingo. Bingo can be achieved in a variety of ways and there are a number of “strategies” that can give you a better shot at winning.

How to Play Bingo

The main objective of the game is to cover the specific pattern of numbers before anyone else. This pattern can be as simple as having five numbers marked off on your game sheet horizontally, vertically or diagonally or covering a previously specified arrangement such as shapes or designs.

Numbers are called at random based on what is dispensed from the mechanical or electronic number generator, so like any other casino game, there is a degree of luck involved.
A string of bingo games can usually last around an hour, which provides a longer playing time at a lower cost than an hour spent at a blackjack table.

An average set of bingo games could cost you around $20 dollars with four cards in each game and payouts can usually reach upwards of $100 per game. Of course, these figures are only averages and depend completely upon the casino, the specific game of bingo and many other factors.

As discussed above, there are a couple of generally accepted strategies for improving your odds of winning at casino bingo.

  1. One would be to choose a game that has fewer people in it. For the most part, this will decrease the number of opposing game cards and increase the chance that you have the winning numbers called first.
  2. A second strategy would be to play as many cards as you can per game. But, be sure that you can effectively manage all your cards as the game is underway in order to avoid missing numbers.

These are just two strategies to improve your odds at winning, ultimately, chance plays a major role in deciding whether you can cash in and yell, “BINGO!”
