Nothing on TV? Give bingo a go
Now the nights are drawing in and the cold temperatures are hardly inviting, the thought of heading outside is anything but a cheery one. But if there’s nothing on TV, you’ve read your magazine from cover to cover, and (shock horror) the housework is completely done, what else can you amuse yourself with? Bingo, that’s what – and the good news is, these days you don’t even have to head outside to enjoy playing the game.
Online bingo is incredibly popular and thousands of people click onto bingo websites every day of the week. Whether they’re new to the game, or they’ve always enjoyed playing it, one thing’s for sure, the British love nothing more than a good game of bingo.
The popularity of online bingo is most likely down to the fact that you can play it whenever you want – in the middle of the night, while sipping your first cup of tea in the morning, or even in your lunch break. Play it at home on your computer, on your tablet at work, or on an app on your mobile while you’re out and about. The options are endless, but if you want to win a little bit of cash as well as have fun playing the game, it’s a good idea to think about some strategies.
Our top tips:
If you’re just starting out, it’s a good idea to hone your bingo-playing skills in games where fewer contestants are playing. While this means that the prize money will be less, it also means that you’ll have a better chance of scooping a prize as you’ll be up against fewer people. So check out the smaller games first and see if you can stack up some small wins and create a stash of cash before trying your luck at the bigger bingo games.
Enjoy the freebies
Many bingo websites, such as Tasty Bingo for instance, offer new players incentives when they sign up. This may be anything from a fiver to £20 so it can often be worth signing up to a few websites to take up these offers. If you get lucky and you win money with your free cash you can then use these winnings to play again.
Once you’ve sussed out your bingo-playing abilities, it’s time to take things up a notch. We’re talking playing with more cards. Obviously, the more bingo cards you play with the greater the chance of your numbers coming up. However, it can be tricky keeping track of all your different cards and their numbers so make sure you play with the right number of cards for you. Otherwise, you may end up missing numbers and ultimately losing out on a big win because you’ve been trying to keep track of too many cards.
So if there’s nothing on TV, and you’re looking for something fun to do from the comfort of your sofa, why not give online bingo a go? Plus, with all those free incentives, there’s really nothing to lose from having a go!
