Bingo may be a simple, easy-to-play game of chance, but experienced players know how to increase their chances of winning. One of the best ways to do that is to find the perfect game for them – where they can find the best value for their money and where they enjoy the game itself.
And one of the easiest ways to win is to find a game that pays out for marking a pattern that consists of any four numbers.
Four Numbers Pattern in Bingo
Winning patterns in bingo come in all shapes and sizes, quite literally. In fact, there are hundreds of patterns you can get on your bingo ticket, depending on the specific game you play. These are the pre-determined positions on the numbered grid where called numbers should fall for a win. Depending on whether you play 90-ball, 75-ball, 50-ball bingo or any other version of the game, your card or ticket may have a 3×9, 5×5 or some other type of a grid with numbers sitting in most of the cells.
The most classic versions of bingo require players to have numbers in one or more straight lines in order to win. But in many games today, you can win by having the selected numbers in different positions on the grid – they are in the form of letters or objects. The pattern referred to in this article consists of only four numbers in any position on the ticket. In some games, these are straight horizontal (only rarely), vertical or diagonal lines. But another common type of this pattern consists of the cells in the four corners of the bingo card. And in other games, you will win if you are the first player to cross four of the numbers on the bingo card.
How to Win with Just Four Numbers in Bingo
Games, where you can win by marking off any four numbers on the grid, are not very common, but they are extremely entertaining and fast-paced. The reason for this is that there is a chance for you to win almost immediately after the game begins – after only four numbers have been called. In contrast, bingo is usually announced in the majority of games after at least 40 numbers are selected.
The game becomes even more interesting considering that all players who have bought tickets have quite good chances of winning. The winner, however, is the person who crosses four numbers on their ticket before the others. This leads us to one of the essential principles in bingo – the more bingo cards you play with, the more likely you are to make achieve bingo and win. Experienced players usually purchase as many tickets as they can afford or the maximum tickets they believe would be reasonable in comparison with the payouts.
Indeed, it is recommended that bingo players choose the game that offers the best value and not the biggest prizes. Sometimes, paying an entry fee too high or purchasing too many tickets cannot be compensated even with a really large cash prize.
