The top tips
Before you even consider the games and promotions on offer, be sure to go with a reputable site. Gamers should stick to familiar and popular sites with trusty reviews. Choosing a reputable site will ensure that you don’t get ripped off and you can be confident that your details and funds are safe.
Once you’re sure of the reputable sites, assess the bonuses and promotions offered by each one. Most, if not all sites offer a bonus simply for depositing funds upon opening a new account. The larger bonuses will help you out as you get to grips with the site.
Many sites also offer a reload bonus meaning that if you redeposit funds into your account, will you be rewarded. And if you deposit funds regularly then you may be awarded a loyalty bonus.
Learning how bingo bonuses work is the key to making sure you get the most gameplay and reward out of the money (and time) you put into playing.
As well as bonuses and promotions, many sites automatically enter its player into cash prize draws or use a points system in which players accumulate points which can be later exchanged for a small sum.
Most bingo sites offer a large variety of games, some which boast popular themes. If you know what you like then a site with a few specific games may be best for you, but if you like to explore, choose a site with a range of games.
The main games offered by bingo sites tend be; coverall, which requires you cover the whole bingo card to win; letter pattern, you must cover the card to make the shape of a predetermined letter; shape, a player must make any shape to win; line, you guessed it, you must form a line in order to win.
If you’re looking to make a few friends or would just simply like a chat, then bingo sites can be great places for socialising. If you visit the same site often enough, you will begin recognise the usernames of other players. If you wish to chat to them then you can do so by the site’s private chat feature (if it has one that is).
The strategy for online bingo is pretty simple. First and foremost, get to know your site and make sure that you’re taking advantage of everything the site has to offer. Analyse the site’s traffic, with fewer players online, you’re more likely to win. Don’t be too greedy by playing several cards at once, you will find that this is hard to keep track of and may miss a number from the caller. Though if you do choose numerous cards, check if your site has an auto-play feature as this will automatically keep track of the cards and numbers for you.
The most important rule when it comes to any form of online gambling is not to play more than you can afford to lose. Only purchase cards within your budget and set yourself a daily limit, not to exceed under any circumstances.
