The logic is simple, the more cards you have for a bingo game, the more chances you have of winning. However, playing with multiple cards can be quite challenging, as you will need to keep track of the numbers being called, quickly scan all of your cards and mark them. In fact, there are a number of pros and cons to be aware and here we shall explore them all and offer you a few tips and tricks to help you play with multiple cards.
You will find that there are a number of advantages to playing multiple bingo cards simultaneously. As mentioned, the main advantage is obvious. While you can never change the fact that bingo is a game of luck, with more cards, you have more chances to complete a winning pattern, which means you have a better chance of winning a prize.
In fact, you have a better chance of winning multiple prizes. You may hit the 1L prize on one card, 2L on another, and Full House on a third. This, of course, makes the game even more enjoyable. Imagine how exciting it is to see winning patterns emerging on multiple cards at once! The more cards you have, the more exciting it becomes.
Another great advantage is that some online bingo sites offer discounts and/or bonuses for purchasing multiple cards, so it can be an extremely cost-effective way to play.
There are, of course, some disadvantages to playing multiple cards simultaneously. The main one is that it costs more to play. To a certain extent, this is countered by the increased chances of winning. However, it is vital that you always stick to your bankroll. Therefore, you may decide that you would rather spread the money across several games with just one card per game rather than purchase multiple cards for one game. That is truly a personal decision and it will depend to a large extent on what aspect of the game you get the most enjoyment from.
You also need to be aware that keeping track of multiple cards at once can be challenging and may require more concentration. It can be easy to make mistakes and miss a number on one of your cards. Furthermore, playing multiple cards at once can be distracting, as you have to keep switching between cards and marking off numbers, which can make it harder to focus on any one game.
It is also worth noting that some games will have restrictions imposed on how many cards you are able to purchase. While this is not a disadvantage, it is important to be aware of.
Luckily, most of the disadvantages of playing multiple cards can be easily removed with the auto-dabbing feature when playing online. Auto-dabbing automatically marks off the numbers on your bingo card as they are called. This means that you don’t have to manually mark the numbers yourself, and can focus on the game instead or simply enjoy the chat room.
Auto-dabbing is offered by nearly all online bingo sites. Some people believe that it removes a core element of the game. If you are one of them, then look for websites that offer different levels of auto-dabbing, such as highlighting the number on the card or highlighting the card if a bingo is called. This way, you can still have the satisfaction of crossing off a number.
It is possible to play multiple cards simultaneously; it just requires a more cautious approach than when playing online. If you would like to do so, then here are a few tips to help you:
