Bingo Games Etiquette

Some people tend to think that all you need to play bingo is luck while some rely on their personal superstitions and others requires that applying a good strategy is the key to winning this game. But regardless of what you believe or think, entering the arena of bingo requires that you first learn about proper etiquettes as well as fundamentals associated with the game. To win the game, you need to shout the word ‘bingo’ in the loudest voice possible. This is the only way that the caller and floor walker can take note of your win and verify your win. When confirmed, you will take home the pot money.

Keep in mind the fact that failing to shout ‘bingo’ will see you get disqualified and you won’t be pocketing the win. When there are more than two winning cards, the pot money is divided among the two winners and this principle applies when there are more than 2 players provided they are all verified and confirmed. Rules and etiquette in bingo halls, even though are generally the same tend to be different from one bingo hall/ site to another. It is essential that you be on the look out for any special handouts just in case there are new or additional rules.

Most bingo halls/ sites will only allow players who are aged above 18 years to participate in the game. When gambling at a local bingo hall, check whether alcohol is prohibited or not and do as required. Smoking is generally not acceptable in public places and bingo halls are no exception to this either. If you must smoke, ask if there are some designated smoking places where you can do your thing. Some bingo halls don’t allow cards reservation and you are required to order your cards upon arriving.

Some bingo halls prohibit players from making unnecessary trips in and out of halls especially when the games involve high stakes. While you could be moving out in good faith, you should never tamper or alter your bingo cards. You simply can’t fool other people and this might run you into very serious problems like being banned from a bingo hall. Some halls even do not allow players to bring along their companions though some of them do allow. Annoying other players with your little kids is something you should avoid as you will be interfering with everybody’s peace of mind.
