Whether or not you can do anything to increase your chances of winning at Bingo has been a matter of debate for years. Hundreds of theories have been set forth only to be slapped down by the logic of someone else. There are supporters for all sides of the issue. Some feel that mathematical probabilities can give you a clue to which Bingo card will be the best, and others believe the only way you can increase your odds is by playing a greater number of cards.
People have tried to create mathematical formulas in order to help people win playing Online Bingo almost as long as the game has been in existence. They have even written entire books in order to market the information they have supposedly worked out. However, there's no proof that any of these formulas really worked. If they did, why wouldn't the people who created them stick to playing Bingo in order to become wealthy instead of trying to sell you a book? Bingo has been around for so long, and so many people have tried to come up with secret formulas for winning, that we'd all know them by now if there were really any that worked.
The best bet for winning is to play as many cards as you can keep track of. Obviously, your odds of winning are much greater if you're playing 20 cards instead of only 1. Many Bingo parlors and Bingo sites limit the number of cards one person can play at one time, because they don't want a person who can afford a lot of cards to have unfair advantages over the other players. Even so, there are people who dispute the notion that extra cards will increase your chances of winning.
The final theory is that there is no way to increase your chances of winning when you play Bingo . After all, Bingo is a very simple game, and there aren't any ways to change the outcome of the game. In a regular, 75-ball game, the odds of any number 1 through 75 being chosen on the first pick are exactly the same. There is only one chance in 75 that any particular number will be the one drawn.
The best idea when playing Bingo is to play for fun and enjoy winning a game occasionally. Trying to increase your chances of winning probably won't work, and you'll only find yourself becoming frustrated instead of having a good time.
