## Increasing Your Winning Chances in Bingo

It's all about having enough bingo cards that have numbers on them often called out. Getting exactly the needed cards--this increases the probability of getting almost every number called out marked on the bingo cards.

Allot a budget for spending in the game. Many don't. Be realistic with the budget - just enough bingo cards to try out luck and some new strategies for the day, and not spend a fortune in a day.

First, there are three categories of numbers cards should have. So the cards should at least be three or more. The categories are low, middle, and high numbers. Check the cards if the numbers reflect a well distributed range of these categories.

In bingo, the letter B, for instance, ought to have low, middle, and high numbers in its row. Like, say, B - 3, 7, 10, 12, 15. Numbers 3 and 7 are low, 10 is middle, and 12 and 15 are high. The number categories are evenly distributed in a bingo card. And so with the rest of the letters.

Or, get three clusters of three cards each. One cluster has low numbers mostly on the cards. The second cluster has middle numbers on the cards. And the third, high numbers. Or have all clusters with the categories widely distributed on the cards. Three clusters of three cards is perhaps the wise limit a budget can have per game.

Getting perfect bingo cards is often an exception than the rule in a bingo game. So the thing is to get at least three or more cards. This lessens the chances of getting imperfect card combinations in bingo.

Now, the next thing to consider is the size of the crowd. How big is the group of bingo players? If it is small - say 50 people - that means cards that are in outnumber the cards that are out. There is a big chance of getting the bingo cards needed. But if the crowd is big, this means most cards are already out - and maybe the best cards among them.

So, if the bingo crowd is still small, it is advisable to get as many bingo cards as possible - within the allotted budget. And yes, it's advisable to be early for a bingo game. Well, most games start when the house is full and then cards are given out. Some let players get cards as soon as they arrive. Either way, be early to get more chances of getting the right bingo cards.

Just remember the simple rule. The word "Bingo" itself is divided into three groups, with N as the divider. B and I have the low numbers. N has the middle numbers. And G and O the high numbers. Use this as the principle. Numbers called are surely to fall in one of these bingo card categories.

To increase chances in winning a bingo game just bear in mind the important principles: high and low numbers well distributed on the bingo cards, and holding the right number of cards per game. These ought to do a big bingo game win.
