Ah teatime, that beloved British tradition of downing tools, putting the kettle on, and unwinding with biscuits or even a slice of cake around 3pm. For online bingo lovers, teatime represents not only the perfect opportunity to indulge one’s sweet tooth, but also a golden chance to maximise one’s odds of winning. With crafty strategy and a bit of luck, one can sip a spot of tea while claiming some tidy bingo prizes.
As all veteran dabbers know, online bingo during teatime brings a surge of casual players just looking to relax and have fun before getting the rest of their day underway. This influx of curious newcomers against the usual diehard bingo enthusiasts can dramatically shift the competitive landscape in favour of cunning tacticians. So let’s take a look at a few key tips to help prepare your winning assault when that teapot starts to whistle.
Find the Best Promos
Around teatime, online bingo operators launch a barrage of special offers to capitalise on the spike in players logging on for their tea and biscuits breaks. So instead of tuning in to the latest episode of your favourite soap on the BBC like Eastenders, or even tuning into the news to see what’s going on with the world, keep an eagle eye out for these daily promos including discounted games, free cards and jackpot bonuses which effectively increase your shot at winning with less investment. Sites like Tasty Bingo, Bingo Diamond and Dabber Bingo are particularly known for generous teatime bonuses. So be sure to take advantage!
Try Higher Stakes Games
While tempting to keep buy-ins modest, there is disproportionate value in trying out more premium bingo rooms which feature bigger prizes but also less competition from casual punters. Given the influx of newbie players around teatime more inclined towards penny games, the higher stakes matches make for softer targets. Now this may not be where you want to go if you are just starting out, and that’s ok. The main thing about Bingo is that it has to be fun and has to suit the way you play. So rather than vying against scores of players in the budget games, take a shot at winning bigger jackpots over fewer challengers in the £1+ rooms.
Use Auto-Purchase Cards For Bingo and Other Games
Another way we can show you how to win online bingo is by using auto-purchase cards. In the hurriedness of teatime bingo when games turn over quickly, there’s nothing more frustrating than getting booted for not confirming cards in time. Save yourself the embarrassment by enabling auto-purchase of cards so you don’t get left out of the action when grabbing another McVitie’s Digestive! Most sites allow setting a default number of cards per game to auto-buy until you manually disable the feature.
Play Multiple Cards
While novices tend to stick to one or two cards per game, and that is understandable as you start to get to grips with the gameplay and find your way of playing that is comfortable, stacking more cards at once dramatically increases your probability of scoring a win. Yes, it’s not for everyone, but if you can get to the point that you are comfortable with this strategy it could prove very beneficial. When less familiar faces fill the bingo rooms during teatime, be sure to ratchet up cards across multiple games to optimise your coverage. Just be careful not to get overwhelmed tracking too many cards at once! Most bingo platforms make managing multiple cards a breeze.
Team Up with Chat
Beyond sheer luck, using the bingo community can also contribute to bingo wins. The community aspect of Bingo is one of the main reasons that people play the game, so beyond giving you a better chance of winning you’ll get to meet people that have the same interests as you and can possibly give you some tips. If not that, then you’ll have a good chat to see you through tea-time!
So, back to the point, Engage bingo room chat features to befriend fellow players and even coordinate a bit of collaborative play by calling out when just one number is needed. While not outright collusion per se, a bit of teamwork never hurts when trying to take home some bingo bounty. Just steer clear of overly blatant win-sharing agreements.
There you have it bingo friends—follow these tips and tea just might taste a bit sweeter if accompanied by some teatime bingo jackpots. Remember to scout bonuses, try bigger buy-ins, enable card purchasing automations and make new friends. Now grab that teapot and let’s win some money! But do pace yourself on the jaffa cakes—no need to overindulge too early in the day.
