The best way to increase your chances of getting a "BINGO" is to play with more cards or a machine. If you play with one card as the other players, your chances of winning are no different from theirs. However, if you’re playing with five cards, you increase your chances of winning by 500%. Even though you won’t be the only one playing with multiple cards, you’ll be far much better than those who have just one.
Any session at Longmont Bingo Alley is a great session. To increase you chances of winning you should pick a session that does not have as many people. You can always call or Facebook us and we will advise you on which ones typically have less people.
