There are thousands of bingo fans around the world that enjoy playing online bingo, but if you are new to the game, do not be intimidated by the amount of sites there are. Before you take up online bingo, feel free to shop around to look at what the different sites out there can offer. You may prefer the different gaming options of one site, or the chat communities on others, and some have different jackpot games.
For a beginner, it is best to start on one of the free online bingo sites so that you can get some practice in playing with ‘fun money’ before you play with the real thing. As a new bingo player, getting chatting to other players in the online bingo rooms is a great way to learn new tips, as well as meet likeminded friends. There are usually bonuses and links to other games in the chat rooms too, so you can broaden your skills with other activities whilst the main game is running.
The structure of online bingo is simple. In a regular 75-ball bingo game, there will be several other players participating at the same time or you can opt to play against the computer. Each of the players will have a unique bingo card so that they can mark the numbers off when the balls are called. There is an ‘auto-daub’ system on most games so that the numbers can be ticked off automatically by the computer – although this does take the thrill out of the game a little bit!
However, it is a good system for if you want to take a screen break, but still carry on playing. A general tip is to buy less cards depending on whether there are more players. The more players in the game there are, the less chance there is of you winning big. If you want a greater chance of winning and you can see there are not lots of other players in the game, then buy some more tickets.
