There are only so many hours in the day, and, likely, you can only play bingo some of that time. See if you can play at your preferred spot outside of peak times. Do what you can to avoid lunchtime, evenings, and weekends.
The fewer people there are when you’re playing, the better. It means there’ll be fewer people competing to call out ‘bingo’. The best times are generally early mornings, late afternoon, and night time. Once you’ve decided on your preferred bingo venues, you’ll be in a position to explore when the most rewarding times to play are.
Playing during quieter times doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the community and miss out on those interactions. Most bingo spaces – online and real-world – have active communities that engage with each other. Make sure to join those spaces, as you stand to learn more tips from players.
How Many Cards?
The more cards you have, the better your chances of winning. It sounds easy. No matter what people think, bingo is an incredibly fast-paced game, with very little time between one call and the next. Practically, that means that unless you’re a seasoned player, you’re likely to miss numbers and get confused if you have more cards than you’re comfortable with.
This is where practice comes in. The more you play, the more cards you’ll be able to manage. Start with 2 to 4 cards, and build from there. Experienced players can handle far more.
On a related note, if you’re playing at a brick-and-mortar establishment, you’ll want to make sure you’re using a good dauber. It’s worth paying a little extra for something that works when you need it, especially if you’re playing with a large number of cards.
Once you’re confident enough to take on extra cards, check in with your bingo venue about any maximum card limit you need to be aware of.
