Playing Multiple Party Bingo Cards
Many players want to know just what the advantages of multiple card play are – and the disadvantages. Does it give you a better chance of winning? What is the optimal number of cards that should be played?
There are different ways to look at multiple card play. First, from a money management point of view, the more cards you play, the more money you have at risk during a game and the more money one may lose if a winning ticket isn’t hit.
In Party Bingo, as in any form of gambling, you should keep your playing stake at levels you’re comfortable with. If playing fifteen cards simultaneously is over your budget and causes undue anxiety, than quite clearly you shouldn’t play so many cards. The same goes whether one is playing five cards or even two.
Another way to look at multiple card play is through the eye of manageability. If you do buy a bunch of cards, can you effectively keep track of all of them?
Some players make the mistake of covering so many cards during a game, that they miss winning Party Bingos and lose out on prizes that they would have won had they been able to keep all their cards under control.
Also, don’t buy so many cards that the constant work necessary to follow the numbers takes the enjoyment out of the game.
Finally, from a mathematical point of view, let’s see what multiple card play means to your chances of winning.
Many Party Bingo players attempt to stack the odds better in their favor by loading up with playing cards and giving themselves more possibilities of winning. In one sense, this thinking is correct, for the more cards a player has, the more chances he or she has to have a winning Party Bingo. But on the other hand, you must realize that the inherent edge the house has against the player doesn’t change whether a player plays but one card or as many as one hundred cards. Let’s say that the house edge is 25%. Buying multiple cards won’t change that 25% house edge (if that is the valid figure in the game), for while the player with multiple cards may win more times by virtue of having more winning possibilities, by the same token, he or she will lose that many more times because the greater amount of cards purchased.
The end result is that the overall expectations of winning doesn’t change. A player with 1 card has just as much a chance of walking away with money as a player with 20 cards.
Thus, your Party Bingo card strategy should take into account the factors we mentioned earlier – money at stake, manageability and simply, the level of playing you find most comfortable to get maximum enjoyment from the game Party Bingo Bonus Code.
