Veteran bingo players who have been going to their local bingo hall for years have found that one of the best things about playing bingo online is just how convenient it is. Unlike having to wait for the bingo hall to open, playing bingo online is 24/7 year-round. It doesn’t matter whether you are a morning person or a bit of a night owl, or if you work days or nights, online bingo allows you to play at any time.
When trying to increase your odds of winning when playing online bingo, you may notice that there are times when your chances actually increase. Here are some things to look for to improve your chances of winning.
Check for Special Promotions at Off Times
Check your favorite online bingo site for promotions that encourage play at off days and hours. Evenings, nights and weekends are all very popular times when online bingo sites will experience the most traffic. Many online bingo venues will offer special promotions and incentives in order to get more players on their sites other than at those times when their traffic seems to be lower. These incentives may come in the form of lower buy-in costs, bonuses, or larger cash prizes.
Here on Bingomania, for example, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays we offer free bingo games with a $10,000 giveaway. These games are held at 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm ET. Right now, from February 18 – March 18, Bingomania is hosting $170,000 Saturday bingo games with a minimum price of $1,700 that start at 9:00 pm and runs till 12:00 am ET. In addition to the main game, Bingomania is featuring $170 non-stop games as well.
Is It a Question of Time A Question of Time?
If it’s 4:00 in the morning, you can’t sleep and want to take part in a relaxing game or two of online bingo, there is no reason why you can’t. You can find a number of games available to you at any time of the day or night. Most who play bingo online believe that the key to increasing your odds is to find a room with a lower number of players and increasing the number of cards you play for your online games. Fewer players to compete against for prize money means an increased chance of winning, no matter what time of the day or night it is.
No Matter Where (or When) You Play
If you’re looking for fun and not just cash prizes, the best time of day to play bingo really boils down to your personal preference. Some online bingo players like to play right after getting home from work as a way to unwind. Some players love to sip their first cup of coffee in the morning while playing bingo, while others love to play after the kids have gone to bed, the house is quiet and there is less chance of being interrupted.
For other online bingo players, the best time to play is when they can talk to the family and friends that they have made online through the chat rooms while playing. Players who take advantage of online chat features can talk to each other just as they might in their local live bingo hall.
Bingo isn’t the only kind of game that players can enjoy online at BingoMania. Players can also experience the fun and excitement of our table games. It’s much like being in a real casino!
BingoMania features two online versions of two of the most popular casino table games: Roulette and Blackjack. Like the bingo games that we feature, these table games are available to play 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And since we offer $100 to new players when they sign up to play here at BingoMania, why not give them a try with your initial bonus?
Try Your Hand at Roulette Online
The game of Roulette began in the 18th Century in the royal courts of Europe and then quickly spread throughout the world in gaming halls, casinos, and nightclubs. Now you can enjoy the excitement of playing Roulette here on BingoMania without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home.
There are different versions of Roulette that are played within the US. These include American, French, European, Automatic, Multi-Wheel and Live Dealer games. Here on BingoMania, we offer the American version since it is the one that most of our players prefer.
This particular version of Roulette features 38 sections. The numbers 1 – 36 appear on the wheel in alternating black or red along with the 0 and 00 slots which are colored green. Beside the Roulette wheel is a grid of corresponding numbers where chips are placed for betting.
The most popular type of betting when playing Roulette is outside betting. That means that, rather than choosing a specific number, the bet is placed on color such as red or black. These spaces are placed around the outside of the mainboard, hence an outside bet.
Depending on what bet type you place the amount of return can vary. Outside bets pay less overall, but they’re much easier to win than hitting a specific number.
Once you get the hang of what it’s like to play roulette, you might even want to try your luck at one of our online tournaments here at BingoMania.
Playing Blackjack Online
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be much of a card player, playing Blackjack online at BingoMania is a great way to learn the ins and outs of the game. Like Roulette, there are lots of variants of the game of Blackjack. The Blackjack games we feature here on BingoMania feature games making use of American rules.
The object of Blackjack is to have a hand of cards that is close to the number 21 as possible without going over. Our system randomly shuffles the cards and deals for the player and for the dealer with one card is face up and the other card being face down. If one of the cards is an Ace, it can be worth either one or 11 points. Face cards are also worth 10 points. Players can check their cards and see how close they have gotten to 21. They can choose to hold or “stand” with the cards they already have or can ask for additional cards, known as “hitting”. A player can keep asking for additional cards as long as they don’t go over 21.
Once all players stand, the players reveal their hands. If the dealer comes closest to 21 without going bust, the dealer wins. If a player's cards add up to 21 without going over they win. Every player is playing against the dealer, so you don’t have to worry about them swiping a win from you!
As with any new game, there is a bit of a learning curve, but here at BingoMania, you don’t have to worry about getting in over your head. You can build up your confidence and your aptitude on our site by playing some of our free games.
Our table games are a great way to add some extra excitement when you need a break from the bingo room. Don’t forget our slot machines as well!
For many who regularly enjoy playing bingo, that night out at the bingo hall can be the highlight of their week. It’s a great way to get out socially, interact with friends and maybe win a little money along the way. No matter how long you have been playing at your local bingo hall, maybe it’s time to think about trying online bingo.
The nice part about playing bingo online is that you don’t have to wait for a certain day of the week, or having to wait till the bingo hall opens or for the bingo caller to get down to business. You can play bingo online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from your home or anywhere if you have a mobile device that can access the internet.
You can also interact with old friends and new online via chat features even while you are playing so it doesn’t feel like you are missing out on the social aspect that bingo provides.
There’s No Place Like Home!
Playing bingo at home and online allows you to be as comfortable as you like. There’s no need to get dressed up, get in the car and drive or take the bus. If you are most comfortable playing from your own personal computer desk, sofa or easy chair, you can still play bingo.
You don’t have to deal with the bad habits of other players
Let’s face it: Sometimes the less positive aspects of playing bingo at your local bingo hall or casino is having to deal with other people. Some players can be annoying or even downright discourteous. When you play bingo online at home, you don’t have to put up with things that take your mind off your game. You can choose to use the chat feature or not. That sure beats having to listen to other players at the bingo hall who talk endlessly, are too loud, throwing a tantrum when they don’t win, or other bad habits.
You are more secure at home
When you play bingo at home online there is never the constant worry of needing to keep an eye on your cards in order to ensure that other players don’t interfere. Online games also remove the chance of you being short-changed by floor staff or needing a security guard to escort you to your vehicle when you win. Most online bingo sites make use of encryption and dedicated servers in order to ensure your safety and security while you are playing and even when you aren’t.
Online bingo is often a better value and less expensive
Often when going to play bingo at the bingo hall, the price of admission may be to spend a certain amount as a buy-in. When playing online bingo, there is a range of prices based on how much risk you are willing to take. Some games are free or have very low pricing in order to get in on the game. You can spend more and take the chance of winning bigger prizes. The important thing is that the choice is up to you.
Online bingo is faster and easier!
There are a number of different types of bingo games featuring different prizes and eye-catching graphics. Online bingo games also tend to be faster-paced. That means the seemingly endless waiting you do while the bingo caller draws and reads from balls drawn from the hopper is no longer an issue. Numbers for online bingo are computerized. That means you just click them with your mouse. There’s no more need for endless reams of paper or messy daubers!
Online bingo can give you bigger bonuses!
Online bingo has become a multibillion-dollar business around the world and continues to grow exponentially each year. Online bingo and other types of gambling sites will usually offer cash or free play incentives as a way to get new members to join and to retain regular players as well.
