If you’ve always wondered what the secret is to winning that elusive bingo jackpot, the bad news is that there is no secret. As a game of chance, the likelihood of winning a game of bingo is based almost wholly on luck. However, bingo is a game of probability, too.

Although land-based bingo halls and online bingo rooms offer bingo action driven by computerized random number generators (RNGs), there are patterns. If you take part in a standard 90-ball bingo game, the likelihood of any number called is 1-in-90. This probability goes down to 1-in-89 with the second ball and 1-in-88 with the third and so on.

Echoes of Black September remind us to put the customer first

Next month marks the ten year anniversary of perhaps the most traumatic period in the history of Britain’s bingo clubs.In September 2007, with clubs still trying to cope with the effects of smoking bans in Scotland, England and Wales, they were forced to remove their most lucrative gaming machines under the full implementation of The Gambling Act 2005. With consumer confidence waning as the credit crunch hit, bingo went into a tail-spin.
While the tenth anniversary of ‘Black September’ is unlikely to evoke too much in the way of nostalgia, it is something worth remembering nonetheless. It ought to remind us of the vulnerability of gambling to political intervention and the fact that bad news has little respect for the principle of mutual exclusivity – not least because in 2017 many of the same factors apply - gambling regulations are in flux, the economy is looking fragile and HM Treasury is in revenue-raising mode.
