Top 10 Tips to Increase Online Bingo Payouts

The game bingo has been around for many years and as more and more popular past times have migrated to an online environment, it was only natural bingo would follow suit with a large amount of players preferring to sit in the comfort of their own armchairs than go out into the cold to a bingo hall.

Now with an excess of over half a million regular online bingo players and well over 300 online bingo sites, everyone seems to be getting into the fun that can be had with online bingo. I certainly have my own top bingo sites but what about actually winning? Joining in is great but winning is even better!

I have played many games of bingo over the years on some of the best bingo sites and I’ve learnt a few tricks that ensure I get the best chance of getting top payouts from the bingo sites.

Below are my top 10 tips:

1. Don’t play in crowded rooms

We all like to join in on the popular games and rooms to have a chat and win some money, but remember, the less people in a room the more likely it is that you will win. Although the less popular rooms might have smaller jackpots you have a much better chance of winning multiple times to accumulate those winnings.

2. Discover what you’re up against

The chat rooms on online bingo sites are brilliant for a little bit of socialising and even making new friends, but they can also be used to your advantage to suss out the competition! Try to figure out how many bingo cards other people in the same game as you are going to play and try to double that amount. That way you will always be top of your game when it comes to the number of bingo cards and will increase your chances of winning.

3. Pick the right time of day

It’s obvious that the most popular time of day to play bingo is between 6pm – 11pm in the evening during week days. If you can, try to get online during early morning or very late evening when the bingo rooms are a little quieter. This will increase your chances of winning as there will be significantly less people playing.

4. Take advantage of the offers

Most online bingo sites will offer incentives to sign up, often doubling or even tripling your first time deposit. Take advantage of this and use that free cash to play bingo using the 3 tips I’ve already provided. This way there is a lot less risk for reward.

5. Do your maths before playing

A little bit of simple math can give you a good indication of your chances of winning in any particular room. A lot of bingo sites now tell you how many cards are in play in the game. Which is more important than knowing how many players are playing with you. Simply dividing the total number of cards purchased for that game against the number of cards you’ve purchased, will give you the percentage of your chances of winning on that game.

6. Keep an eye out for free games

From time-to-time bingo sites will have a promotion for BOGOF bingo or even completely free bingo games. Although often very popular it is worth taking advantage of these offers while they are around on the best bingo sites.

7. Take a break if you’re not winning

Often you will go through spells of not winning anything on bingo sites. This can often be very frustrating and sometimes force you into throwing more and more money at the situation until your luck turns again. I find this is very rarely the case and it’s better to take a rest and come back to it another day when your luck might just have changed.

8. Get some insider knowledge

We all love to have a natter and find out the latest gossip but there is also another advantage to making friends with other bingo players online. The more experienced bingo players will be able to give you tips and advice on how to increase payouts.

9. Jackpots come at weekends

Statistics show that the largest jackpots are won at weekends. Although this will be the most popular time to play its worth just holding back on a couple of games during the week and purchasing some of the more expensive bingo cards at the weekend to increase your chances of a big payout.

10. Check reviews

It seems simple when you think about it. Before signing up to any bingo site check out reviews for the site on one the many bingo review sites out there to see which ones are the best payout bingo sites. They will often give you an interesting insight and indication of the likelihood of success on a site you’re considering signing up to.

Most importantly have fun! Bingo is in reality a game of chance and there are no guarantees you will be successful while playing. But with the above tips you can at least increase your chances.
