Important Things You Should Know Before Playing Online Bingo
When it comes to playing online bingo the concept is relatively simple. It’s a game that plays out in exactly the same way as the offline version, but there are a number of things you should also be aware of when it does come to playing.
Here at Moon Bingo we are always keen to help our players and below you’ll find some of the key information you need in order to really make the most of your bingo gaming…
The Variety of Games
Bingo has come a long way in more recent years and you will find that actually there is more than one game to play these days, and therefore it’s important to understand the rules.
We have a large selection of games, all of which play slightly different. The more traditional forms of bingo are 90-ball and 75-ball bingo which are what you’d expect from a bingo game. They are games in which you mark off a card as numbers are called, although with online bingo this is done automatically for you.
However, there are also newer variations which operate slightly differently. Games such as slingo bingo are a combination of bingo and slots and offer a completely new twist on bingo games.
Therefore it’s important you get to know the rules of these games before you do start to play, otherwise it could lead to a rather confusing game of bingo.
Number of Cards to Play
If you are familiar with bingo and want to improve your chance of winning, then you may wish to play multiple bingo cards.
This is possible when playing online and what’s more, it is much simpler than doing so in a bingo hall. Many players are often put off by playing multiple cards in bingo halls due to being unable to manage the pace a caller reads out the numbers. However, it is important to know that it’s far easier with online bingo as the cards are marked off for you automatically.
You can calculate your odds when playing multiple cards by simply uncovering the proportion of cards you have in comparison to the total number of cards active with all players.
For example, if you were playing with five cards in a bingo game with 50 active cards, you would have a 10% chance of winning. Essentially, the more cards you have in the game, the better odds you will have of winning.
Online Bingo Etiquette
Bingo etiquette is a really big deal offline and you’d perhaps be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t really exist offline.
However, it does exist and in particular when it comes to the chat rooms. Like in real life bingo, you’ll find thriving communities in online bingo sites and you should have the same respect for the people chatting in those as you do the people you play offline with.
Things such as being pleasant to other players, not typing in capitals and not dominating the chat facility are all common practice, while for the main it’s simply a case of treating people how you’d like to be treated, which you really can’t go wrong with.
