We often hear about a certain phrase saying “Shoot for the moon”. In the world of playing cards, the hidden message behind this line is that you have to resort to all the possible tricks in the trade to win. But in the bingo community, “Shoot for the moon” means getting all the bingo numbers in the right place and attain the one goal—to win.
Yes. Whether it’s a full moon, half moon or crescent moon, your only concern is just about one thing. It’s about winning—or is it?
Another famous quote says, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars” It answers everything. Claiming your success in a bingo game is your one big, supreme reason why you are playing. But here’s another thing. Let us not forget the social essence of the game. You may either win or lose, but one thing that shall greatly take part in your success or failure is the atmosphere of the bingo room where you are playing. The atmosphere of certain bingo rooms is something that will excite you.
Bingo, like any other game, is a game of chance and anticipating possibilities is the real key to success. But unlike other games of chance, where you are left out in the corner licking your own wound, in bingo you will certainly find bingo roomies which are constantly on your side whether you lose or draw.
It’s an ultimate goal for every bingo player to hit a Progressive Jackpot and that is when shooting the moon really comes into play. For instance, a player needs a Coverall in 54 numbers or less to win a Progressive Jackpot. And oh by the way, your chances of winning are 1 in 18,738 for a card. Say, if there are 600 total cards in play in a bingo room, chances of one of those cards to win is only 3.21%
For that reason, simply depending on a lot of luck, to actually win a shining Progressive Jackpot makes a player ride over the moon and right off the swing! Chances of winning the Jackpots in any game are pretty slim and if you are going to hit the Progressive Jackpot, well—that’s what makes your game really momentous.
Bingo Progressive Jackpots stands out among the other games such as Slots, Poker and other Casino Jackpots because the odds are much better in bingo compared to them. Each day, the number of required bingo calls increases and instead of waiting for months or even a year in some casino games, bingo games tend to give the result much faster.
It’s also not at all a great risk to shoot for the moon and reach for the stars through bingo game. Bingo games take much longer for a player per game. The cost of cards are also lesser than what one might expect in case of other gambling options.
Do you ever dream of winning a jackpot? So your answer is yes than a good game to start chasing the stars and shooting for the moon to win big is a bingo game. And if you think winning a major Jackpot is way too impossible—think again. The odds might be in your favor.
