Get more from your Bingo site!

Everyone loves to get more for their money and when it comes to playing online bingo, why should it be any different?

Most bingo sites offer great introductory bonuses when you sign up, 300%, 400% and more just to get you playing but these great bonuses soon dry up and leave you feeling unwanted as a player. With meagre reload bonuses of 10%, 20% or 30% when you fund as a regular player, it’s time to move on to the next new bingo site and another great introductory offer. Most players now find themselves hopping between whichever bingo site offers the best bonus that day, if the bingo sites does not reward their loyalty, then why should players be loyal to the site?

With so many sites now belonging to two or 3 major bingo networks, the games and prizes are the same wherever you play, removing the individuality of the bingo sites and the exclusive fun they offer. This in turn makes online bingo dull, boring and no longer the interactive fun pastime that so many of us love. Ask yourself, when did you last login to play bingo and feel that you were part of a warm welcoming bingo community?

Great bonuses are all good and well, but do you have to jump through hoops and play through crazy amounts just to be able to withdraw your winnings? Wagering requirements are the quietly hidden away rule that most bingo sites now employ to ensure that withdrawing your winnings is so complicated and hard work that the majority of players just playing away anything they win. A 300% bonus sounds great until your look deeper and see that you have a 3x wagering requirement. That means that you have to play through a crazy amount before you can withdraw what remains of your winnings.

It’s not all gloom and doom though, at CyberBingo we have led the way in online bingo fun since 1996, providing our players with the very best online bingo experience. Built by players for players, enjoyment always comes first at CyberBingo and we give our players fantastic bonuses every time they fund, exclusive games and promotions to play and best of all we have absolutely No Wagering Requirements to keep them from their winnings.

We believe that the player comes first and without our players CyberBingo would be just another run of the mill bingo site. With incredible bonuses every time you fund, no silly rules to keep you from your winnings and fantastic bingo promotions that could see you joining our Big winner’s wall of fame, join in the bingo fun at CyberBingo to see for yourself why CyberBingo is bingo at its best!

Technology and Online Bingo at its Finest

Technology has made its mark in almost every aspect that is known to man – lifestyle, academics, sports, and even with the most primitive of sorts such as fire; it has paved its way towards everything imaginable to man and without technology, life would not become as easy as we know it already is. And now, it has made its way unto something usually done manually, bingo in its new avatar of online bingo.

Yes, technology has presented itself to this gaming trend that has been with the humans since the times when gambling became a good entertainment of sorts and a source to which money plays a big role and taking risks is the thrill of the game. It has leveled the game up a little bit, by introducing online bingo.

Online Bingo

Online Bingo

In this modern age, again, technology has made it possible for people who are busy with work to play bingo even when you are resting at your own abode, but if you plan to create a website where people can play online bingo, never think for a second that it will be an easy job. On a brighter side though, technology has developed applications such as Java and Adobe Flash in order to help with the development of online bingo – its layout, design, and the intricacies that makes it function which makes playing bingo online a pleasurable experience by being pleasing to the eye and having smooth operations, making it a definite experience.

In addition, you can now play bingo anywhere you go. If online bingo was developed years back, then certain limitations, imposed by the times, would not allow you to play online bingo anywhere. Back then, the only place which allows internet access would be the computer desktop and we all know that this kind of personal device is fixed in a certain area of your house. Moreover, you cannot carry it around since it would be too bulky especially with the number of components that it needs in order to run its functions, not to mention the complicated wirings.

In contrast, these times have allowed accessibility anywhere we go because in addition to the devices such as smart phones, PDAs, and Netbooks, to name a few, the internet connection is already available without wires and the devices can pick them up anywhere that a hotspot is available. With these, you can play bingo anywhere you can such as parks or restaurants, in devices that is getting smaller and smaller.

In relation to the previous paragraph, anywhere you go there is an assurance that you will get something when you play bingo, especially when it is online bingo. This also means that, anyone can win at anytime – may it be a co-worker in the office or a friend while you are hanging out – and if that happens, then you can be assured of free drinks and food, if they do not get too stingy.

Lastly, the question that might be hovering above the clouds is “Will bingo being played online replace traditional bingo?” The answer, maybe, but it could be more of complementary of each other. Since traditional bingo stations close earlier, you could continue playing at the comforts of your own home.

Investing in Bingo

Bingo, like many other games, has moved online. We often think of Bingo as a homey game played in community centers across the world. But it also has a more serious side as a betting and jackpot game. In traditional Bingo halls, the rules for winning and collecting winnings are different from place to place, but they are usually stated at the Bingo hall itself. If players get confused, there is an attendant who can help explain the policy.

Bingo

Bingo

When playing online Bingo, players can be at a bit of a disadvantage. Like in traditional Bingo halls, online Bingo sites clearly state their financial policies in a special section on their website. However, if they are unclear to you it is rare that someone can explain them. This article will seek to explain some of the common practices found among online Bingo sites so that you can make smart decisions about your betting.

The first thing to be aware of is that not all sites are reputable. Online Bingo attracts as many as 3 million players per day, and it is no surprise to anyone that there are scam artists on the internet hoping to cash in on this type of trade. A scammer will set up a real looking site that allows you to deposit money, but will never pay you if you win. The best way to spot them is to check out their discussion boards. Healthy online Bingo sites tend to attract a community of repeated players. If the players have stuck around, then the site is clearly operating a legitimate business. You can also try checking independent online Bingo sites and forums. They will be populated by players who frequent many sites and, most likely, have discovered the ones that are scams. If you don’t have much time, try typing in the name of your Bingo site and see if any posts have been made about it.

The second consideration is the withdrawal limits. Once you’ve found a reputable site you’ll want to look closely at their financial policies to determine just when and how much money you can withdraw at a time. Sites will often have a minimum amount that you must meet to withdraw your funds, and most will also have a maximum. This is to protect the site. First, the site wants you to stay invested. Having a short waiting period or barrier to withdrawing ensures that the players make some sort of commitment before sitting down. Second, the sites operate like a bank in that if everyone withdrew at the same time, or if they suffered a large withdrawal, they might shut down or be unable to meet the amount. By spreading large withdrawals over a set amount of time, the site has the ability to make money to meet its obligations.

So remember, before investing in any site, do your research. You’ll want to know if the site is reputable and that your financial information will be safe. You’ll also want to understand what its withdrawal policies are before you go to withdraw and find that you can’t. If you arm yourself with knowledge, you’ll enjoy the bingo game much more.

A Bingo Winner story

As the story goes for a bingo winner, there was this lady player who would regularly spent some time playing online bingo but could not win much even after playing every day without fail.

The lady was an avid bingo player but could not spare enough time to play during the day or night as she felt very tired after a day’s hard work. But being a great lover of the game, she used to get up early every morning and have a game of bingo before moving over to her daily household tasks. She had to do the laundry, scrub the tiles, sweep the floors, vacuum the carpets and myriad other jobs which a housewife has to do.

Bingo Winner

One day as usual she got up early end logged into her favourite online bingo site and started playing bingo. But soon she realized that she was not winning anything at all, but just like all the other days only losing money steadily. Frustrated due to the losing streak she was facing, she decided to finish off her daily chores which looked more important to her.

But she could not give up the game and so she bought some cards and then she went about her business. She started by sweeping the floors as she could use a machine to do the job and did not have to go down on her knees to do it. This made it easier for her to make frequent checks on the computer and the progress of the game as she worked on her chores at the same time. She would hurry to the computer, buy some cards if required to continue the game, and return to her work.

But every time as usual, she would find that the balance was getting less and less as she bought the cards but won nothing in return. She was afraid that she would soon lose all her balance and have no more money to pay for the cards. She started to dread this moment as it would mean that she would have to borrow money from her family so that she could play online bingo.

It happened on one of her frequent checks when she found that her balance amount displayed on the computer screen had suddenly shot up by a huge amount. She stood staring at the computer screen for some time unable to believe what she was seeing.

She was so habituated to losing that she could not absorb the fact the Lady Luck had smiled on her at last. Not able to take in what she saw on the screen she stopped the game and logged herself out from the online bingo site. She thought that there must be something wrong with the computer or the internet or the site’s server conducting the game.

She logged in again into the online bingo site and checked the balance displayed on the screen again. Indeed the screen displayed that she had won a huge amount of cash in the last game she had played and the amount was being displayed after being added to her balance. She was totally unable comprehend as to how or when she had won the bingo but felt elated that she had been able to win.

She felt herself on cloud nine after winning such a huge prize. Such was her excitement at winning this huge amount of cash after patiently playing the game of online bingo for such a long time, that she forgot all about her daily chores in the exhilaration of the moment.

Patience and consistency in bingo definitely has its rewards.

How Bingo Promotions affect the game of Bingo

Among all this talk of Bingo Game let us talk about a new bingo promotions from Cyberbingo and VistaGaming.

CyberBingo & VistaGaming Promotion: Buy 6 Cards and Get 3 FREE!

Bingo Promotions

Bingo Promotions

You already know the game of bingo originated in Italy and how it spread from Italy to France and Germany and the United Kingdom and finally America. You have also heard how internet has helped to reach this popular online game to people all over the world which is not the end of the story. This ever growing popularity of bingo is not only because of the ease and excitement of the game, but has been possible due to the bonuses and promotions offered by the online bingo sites to a great extent.

The month of February has been a very hectic period for these online bingo sites like CyberBingo & VistaGaming. The promotional games offered by these online sites have been quite a few with large amounts of prize money and bonuses being offered. One of the best promotions which the reputed online sites had come up with for the first time in the history of bingo can be considered a very novel idea. The promotion on offer to the players was 3 free cards for every 6 cards you buy, or 6 free cards for every 12 cards bought or 9 free cards for every 18 cards bought and so on. The games were held in a special bingo room called the Valentine’s Day Bingo room every evening from 6 pm Eastern Time until midnight of the same evening. The games were held on a pari-mutuel basis meaning that the prize money was not declared at the beginning but depended on the total cash inflow due to sales before the game actually started. You can imagine the amount of interest this promotion generated.

There were other promotions offered during the month of February which made the month so special to both online bingo sites and bingo players alike. The reputed online bingo sites like CyberBingo & VistaGaming were offering the games of President’s Max called $150 maximum $500 games which were held every hour starting from 6 pm onwards up to midnight on the evening of Monday, 18th February. The games were held in the Valentine’s Day bingo room on top of the normal bingo games.

The type of promotion you should keep yourself aware of and participate in whenever they are offered are the Guaranteed Games. They had guaranteed prize money of $10,000 and were held in the month of February. In this huge bingo event there were three warm-up games which were held before the commencement of the actual game. The games started at 8 pm, 9 pm and 10 pm respectively with cash prizes of $1000 in each game. The actual Guaranteed Game of $10,000 cash prize started at 11 pm with the Coverall pattern being declared as the winning pattern. One of the regular players who participated in the game saw the color of his card change from the earlier color to red showing that he had won the bingo. At first the player could not believe in her luck and thought that the red color meant that she had to share the winning amount with other winners. But when her name was displayed beside the winning amount of $10,200, she just could not believe her eyes and vented her excitement in a scream of ecstasy as she lobbed her laptop towards her brother.

This confirms the fact that if you play on the reputed online bingo sites like CyberBingo & VistaGaming, which offer you absolute privacy for your personal information, you always have a chance to win big. So, start playing online bingo at these sites without any hesitation and get rich in the process.

Resolutions taken by Bingo players for the New Year 2013

2012 was bid goodbye and the New Year 2013 was welcomed all over the world over cork-popping bottles of champagne and good humour. As fire crackers burst all over the sky, everybody hugged each other and their loved ones with sky-high expectations of the good things to come in 2013. People were having incredible visions and even more incredible dreams of good health and prosperity which they would be able to achieve in the coming months of this New Year. Resolutions to discard old habits and beliefs and to take up new strategies to go forward were taken. New decisions and resolutions became the order of the day and bingo players across the world also came up with some of their own.

bingo players

Though bingo provides a lot of thrill an excitement, discipline is a very vital factor for winning in any game of luck. All bingo players should exercise restraint to remain in control of the game and make smart decisions while playing bingo. Once you start on a game of bingo the circumstances prevailing at the moment can make you get carried away. It is absolutely essential for you to decide on your strategy before you proceed any further. You should spend your money judiciously by setting limits to your expenses and by remaining within those limits you have created for yourself whatever happens.

Stop yourself from chasing your losses with the idea of regaining some of it. It is a common mistake which is made by all inexperienced bingo players which results in a bigger loss than if they had stopped their game in time when the loss was small. Going after a big win when you are having a losing streak is usually very foolhardy and normally does not work.

Avoid drinking too much while you are placing your bets. Too much alcohol deprives you of a clear mind and straight thinking and makes you take rash decisions and unnecessary risks. Limit your intake of alcohol to small amounts when you are playing bingo so that you can remain completely sober throughout the game.

Do not consider your winnings to be money belonging to the bingo house and not to you and do not return it because you think so. The actual game is not only to have fun and enjoy the game but also to win some money as you play bingo against the house. So whenever you are lucky enough to win some cash, try to get it out from the house for which you will be thanking your stars at a later date.

Retain your style of playing bingo even if you are on a winning streak. If you are a habitual low bettor, then you should try to retain the way you bet even if it is tough when you are having a winning streak and thinking that you may win more if you bet more. There is always chance that your winning streak may end suddenly and you will lose much more because your wager was big.

A lot of fun and excitement can be derived out of the games of slots, bingo and scratch cards. But you should remember to disengage yourself from the game and rethink a different strategy if the present strategy is forcing you to draw upon your funds for household uses. Take a resolution that you will use your wisdom to play smart bingo this New Year 2013 and if Lady Luck smiles on you then you might come out a winner after all.

Rules and Etiquettes in a Bingo Game

What if you get the full bingo card pattern? A simple, loud “Bingo!” is the customary way to make caller notice you. Once you notify the caller, an assistant, who is sometimes called a floor walker, will verify your win. Once your bingo game numbers are verified by the computer, your winning bingo card will be posted all throughout the night for other players to check. This is needed to keep the things transparent.

bingo game

bingo game

If two players win a bingo game on the same declared number, the jackpot is equally divided into two. Same thing when three people win together. The prize is also divided into three.

Common Rules

  • Bingo halls may vary when it comes to rules. What you have to do is just read and observe the rules carefully before you start the game.
  • Never, ever cheat. Alteration of a card is worthless and you can’t fool anybody. Be a good example to every player. Play safe by being honest. Below are some common rules you may encounter:
  • In most halls, players must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Not every bingo hall permits alcoholic beverages although there are some who sells them and even soda drinks. Certain establishments may expect you to buy foods only within their area.
  • During special high-stakes games, players should not frequently enter and leave the room.
  • Reservation of specific cards is not allowed.
  • While playing, other people who are not part of the game should not stay inside to watch. Seats are exclusive only for people who have their buy-in. Some halls even require attendance tickets for the players.
  • If a player wins, he or she should notify the caller by shouting a loud “bingo!” to temporarily stop the game before the next number is announced. Bingo should be claimed right after most-recent number is called. If the caller already announced the next ball, then it’s too late to call for you to call “bingo”. When a caller closes the game and drops the balls for the next game, any missed bingos becomes invalid.
  • One practical reminder: Bring a photo ID in case you hit the big one. For large jackpots, players should produce a Social Security card which they would fill out to state their earnings and tax.
  • In addition, the hall has the right to announce the identity of the winners and the winning numbers.

Bingo Etiquettes

  • Most bingo players are cordial and they are more than happy to converse with you should you have any bingo problem. Always observe friendly manners to them.
  • Avoid stepping on any toes as you make your way through the bingo hall.
  • Pipe down instantly as soon as the caller gets down to business.
  • Choose a lucky seat.
  • Don’t serve as a parrot. Never announce numbers in repetition as you are just be distracting other players.
  • If you bring your kids along with you, make sure to involve them in certain activities to keep them quiet. This is to avoid distracting other players.
  • Whatever the game leads you, never ever let your frustrations annoy anybody around the hall. If you have any concern, the bingo manager is always there to listen and assist you.
  • Double check your numbers before you call bingo.
  • If you smoke, you can do it in a designated area.
  • For the first-timers and seasonal players, just follow the playing tips the players mention in the next section.

Comprehension of the Odds in Bingo game

The odds against you in a bingo game can be calculated as 4 percent when the number of cards you hold, e.g. 4, divided by total number of cards being held by the players, e.g. 100. By multiplying the total number of players by an average number of cards gives you the total number of cards in the game.

bingo game

bingo game

This odds calculation does not hold for a progressive jackpot game without any winner. Obtaining a winning pattern in this game is so remote that it may take weeks and months for a win.

What are the numbers which appear frequently?

All balls in a bingo game have to be tamperproof, without any manufacturing defect and the full complement of 75 balls loaded in a fully operational machine. This ensures that all 75 balls have equal chances of appearing at the same frequency.

A coin flipped thrice may land with heads twice and tails once and vice versa. But if it is flipped for three hours at a stretch it might come up with the same number of heads and tails.

The ball N-31 may appear four times whereas ball N-42 never appears in a two hour bingo game. This does not mean that you should buy all cards with the number N-31 because it may be a coincidence. When the game stretches over a longer time this difference may disappear altogether.

What method should you follow to win?

The following hints may help to make the odds favourable to you.

Play at bingo halls which are less crowded as the odds against you becomes less.

Visit the bingo hall when the inclement weather keeps most of the players away.

Choose the middle of the afternoon or late nights to play bingo when other players are away and occupied with their own commitments.

Get acquainted with the surroundings before you start a game because low attendance may also mean a low jackpot.

Try to play with as many cards as possible to increase your winning chances.

Multiple cards make the odds better, e.g. 100 players with 4 cards each is a total of 400 cards. If you buy 20 cards instead of 4, then the odds in your favour, increases by 5 times, i.e. 5 percent whereas the odds for other players, is 1 percent.

Though the calculation of odds become much more favourable with multiple cards, you may also stand to lose more money.

Choose any number of cards according to your convenience but it is better if you calculate the average and play with the same number. Adding some more to this average makes the game more interesting but you must be able to handle them.

Try to choose cards which are not duplicates of one another to increase your chances of winning.

If the bingo hall allows it, hold the set you have chosen through multiple sessions. Some players may think that the set is lucky because they have won with it earlier and some others think the set is due for a win.

You may have won a number of times with the same set of cards but you may have lost also which you never consider.

The set of cards you are holding through the sessions may be familiar to you and you may have more confidence in playing with them.

You have to concentrate on the game so that you do not miss a call and thus you fail to win a bingo.

Always have a positive attitude towards the bingo game and you can enjoy even though you do not win.

Misunderstandings about Online Bingo and Roulette

People normally misunderstand what online bingo or the game roulette is all about. Some people think that online bingo is a game for the aged and not for young people while others feel that roulette is a very unpopular form of game which is not played normally by anybody. If you delve into the aspects of the games then you will come to the conclusion that it is not actually the way it appears to be. In fact both online bingo and online roulette are the most popular online games that are played by thousands of players all over the world. But earlier this was not the scenario because of the following facts.

People started playing online roulette since the first day it was introduced by an online casino site. As a matter of fact, roulette and blackjack were the first online gamers to be offered to the world of gamblers and both became an instant hit with the players. Many people who wanted to play blackjack or roulette but lacked the confidence to walk into a casino in person to play the game, felt more confident in playing the game in the privacy of their homes where there was less chance of disturbance or embarrassment. Most of the people who started playing these games on the online sites from the confines of their homes got hooked to the game instantly. This gave them confidence about the game and online roulette players started to crowd the online casinos in great numbers. The game of online roulette has become so popular that it has become a game which is invariably played by all serious players when they want to have a change from other online games. The latest internet technology has improved the online roulette game by bringing in 3D effects to the game which has been greatly appreciated by the players.

Comparatively online bingo is a recent phenomenon which has been attracting a large number of online gamblers to it. Though the game of bingo was introduced to the people a long time ago it has still not become as popular as it should have. There are people who describe the game as a means for raising funds for charity and that it is played by the old people who find it difficult to cope with the thrill and mental pressure of a normal online game, which is not quite true. Online bingo can generate the same amount of fun, excitement and financial gain as the next online game. As the number of players trying out their hand at online bingo is growing each day, the more popular it is becoming among the masses as did online roulette.

Both these online games have become so easily accessible to the masses that their popularity has reached sky high proportions. Any online bingo game player is sure to answer that he plays either online bingo or online roulette if asked what online games he is usually interested in playing.

Earlier players had to register themselves at different sites to play online bingo and online roulette. Nowadays you do not have to do so because you can play both the online games at any of the top notch online bingo sites. These sites offer various other online games besides online bingo like blackjack, roulette, crap and others at the same location. You can very well sign up at these top notch sites to play the games of your choice as they provide excellent customer service very huge bonuses.

Bingo for Education and Fun

There are a lot of different types of bingo which are played besides the normal game played in land based bingo halls and online bingo sites. These games have been devised to help in education and for pleasure and do not involve any money whatsoever.

Bingo for Education

Bingo for Education

The bingo cards used in these games have pictures, phrases and words on different subjects printed on them instead of the normal numbers. Numbers are not called out like in the normal game, but questions on the topics related to the pictures and words printed on the cards are asked. The cards used are sometimes duplicates of one another so that everybody playing the game is given an even opportunity to win and no amount of luck is involved to favour any player individually. You are required to mark the picture or word or phrase which you think is the correct choice in answer to the questions being asked. The card of the person calling out bingo is checked whether the player has marked the right picture in reply to the questions and not the wrong ones. Only knowledge and skill is required to get all your answers correct and the card marked correctly wins the game.

This type of the bingo game helps in the learning process of both the children and the adults as they enjoy playing the game and improving their knowledge simultaneously. If every card used in this version of the bingo game is different from the others with a different of pictures and words per card, then the question of luck comes in. You have to have both knowledge and some luck in your favor to find and mark the correct answer on the card to win.

The topics, on which the pictures and words are based upon, can vary from the very easy ones like nouns, verbs and adjectives in a language to the most complicated ones like the different kinds of parasites in the world or even the different varieties of yachts available. The cards which have nouns, verbs and adjectives can be used to educate the children about the English language and can be used for other languages also.

A bingo game of this type which was prepared for a political debate held a few months earlier was found to be the most interesting. There were four political parties participating in the debate and a color was assigned to the card of each party. The supporters of the parties were each given a card which had the color assigned to his party. The cards had the phrases, rhetoric and buzz-words normally used by the leaders of his party leaders printed on them. The supporter was asked to mark similar words and phrases that were being used whenever a leader stood up to speak. The catch was to find a card not with maximum markings but with the minimum number of markings signifying the ability of the political leader to use minimum amount of rhetoric while engaging in a debate over political topics.

Some of the words printed on the cards were economic reforms, increase in inflation, climate changes, crime control, building blocks, fiscal growth, banking sector reforms and social issues.

Another type of bingo game, that can be played with children while travelling by car, to stop them from inquiring whether they have arrived or not, involves cards with pictures of petrol stations, coaches, cows, bridges, roundabouts and anything which they see passing by. The winner was the child who had the most number of markings. You can also try out your own form of bingo sometimes.

Bingo is picking up Speed

What exactly is Speed Bingo? How is the game of bingo beginning to get faster? Bingo is not becoming faster because the caller of a land based bingo hall suddenly starts calling out the numbers very fast because he has a nature’s call to attend to and he wants to finish the bingo game fast in order to rush off. Nor it is an online bingo game where a virus infects the server of the bingo provider and instead of degrading the system performance it makes the numbers appear at ever increasing speeds and there is a cacophony of unbearable sounds until the system eventually crashes and the game ends.

A game of bingo has become faster by the introduction of the 30-ball bingo game. In this new version of the game, the total number of balls has been reduced from 90 to 30 and the cards have a 3×3 square matrix instead of the normal 3×9 format. Only one-third of the numbers in the original game i.e. 30 numbers are required to be called for finishing a game in lesser time. You need to mark only 9 numbers on each card to win. There are no one-line or two-lines to be won in this game. You can only win a full-house in this form of bingo game whether it is land based or online. The short span of time required by this version of the game to finish enables you to play more games in an hour’s time thereby increasing your chances of winning a bingo more frequently.

The popularity this form of the 30-ball bingo game has been phenomenal with the amount of the jackpots becoming more and more as larger number of players are getting attracted to the game.

Since there are less numbers to call out, you need to concentrate more to avoid getting distracted and failing to hear the number being called out when you are playing in a land based bingo hall. The auto-dauber feature of an online bingo game is able to handle the speed at which the numbers appear on your computer screen without any problem.

Speed Bingo is preferred by players who want to play a warm up game before they play an actual 90-ball game. New players can get acquainted with the rudiments of the game by playing a game of Speed Bingo. It is quite possible that the young people who do not seem to have much time on their hands or feel impatient about a normal game taking too much time to finish, normally prefer the Speed Bingo.

If you have not played 30-ball Speed Bingo till now, it is recommended that you try your hand at it at least once. You can play the Speed Bingo as a warm up game before the actual session of bingo starts or a cool down game after the actual session of bingo has ended. The best part of a game of bingo is the suspense created by your cards getting filled up by marked numbers and the tension generated by the thought about whether you are going to win or not. With the calling of more and more numbers your level of anticipation flow of adrenalin increases which is not there in a 30-ball Speed Bingo. The large time taken for you to win eventually gives you a higher level of enjoyment. But it is your discretion to choose whichever form of the game you prefer as after all it is your money and you are paying for the game.
