Bingo is one of the most popular and most beloved gambling games, one that many people from all around the world play – some even on a daily basis. And why wouldn’t they play? After all, bingo is a fun game where you can take your mind off the worries of the day-to-day life, and, best of all, if you’re lucky enough then you might just win a hefty sum of money. This setup speaks to the heart of any and every seasoned gambler and is the core reason for the game’s popularity.
Now, as with any other game in life, there are certain people that would like nothing better than to cheat at it. After all, cheating at a game will give you a significant advantage over your opponents and the system itself, meaning that the chances of you winning the game will get increased drastically. And in the case of bingo, if you know how to cheat properly, then you have practically struck a goldmine.
But not everything is so simple, of course. While bingo is inherently a simple game, it also has complex protection from various methods of cheating. A word of caution – if you cheat at bingo, then you cheat at your own risk. You might get caught at it, and then you will not only be banned from the casino or place where you’re playing, but you will also face criminal charges for cheating at bingo. That’s right, the owners of the place where you play and cheat at bingo are typically very serious people, and they don’t take cheating attempts lightly. This means that they will invest time and money into persecuting you, and you might even end up in jail.
That being said… there may very well be a chance for you to be smarter than the system. And below you will find some of the most popular cheating methods for both online and offline bingo.
We’ll first start with offline bingo… how do you go about cheating? Well, there are several methods that you could try out.
Work with the caller
The first of them would be for you to work with the caller. The caller at a bingo game is the person that calls out the numbers from the balls as they are coming. You can immediately see how big of a cheating potential knowing the caller has. You may get together and work up a plan and methods of communication without nobody noticing. You may use sophisticated hand signs in order to indicate which numbers you have on your ticket, so that the caller may read up those exact numbers, regardless if they are the numbers that are actually drawn. Of course, you need to be very careful not to get caught.
Don’t overuse this method as you will get really suspicious in the eyes of the owners, and give your best to split the winnings in a just way with the caller, as if you end up fighting and bickering with them, they may rattle you out as a cheater – and lo and behold you will face criminal charges.

The second way of cheating that we suggest for the ardent cheaters among you is to once again find a contact among the employees within the bingo place where you usually play. Then you will use this person’s knowledge on how to counterfeit the betting tickets. This is no easy task however, the betting tickets typically have several layers of protection from being counterfeited. You will need stamps and special paper, and still this won’t be a guarantee that you won’t eventually get caught.
But if you’re proficient at counterfeiting tickets, then you may very well cheat the system. Bring these counterfeits with you, and be careful not to be noticed that you’re pulling them out from a bag. You should mix in with the people at the place, and buy a few genuine tickets just so that you will look less suspicious. When the bingo starts, you will do well to carefully pull out some of your fake tickets and analyze whether they are winning. Again, be careful not to get caught while doing this. And then it’s a matter of luck mixed with your proficiency as a counterfeiter. The authorities at the place may still catch you even if you use the latest and most advanced counterfeiting technology that exists today.
Be the confidence Man
Finally, you may take the role of the so called confidence man. If this is a natural proclivity that you have – to be always friendly with people and make great first impressions, then you may use this to your advantage. Of course, this is the morally most distasteful approach that you can take in order to cheat.
The point of this method is to find some of the senior citizens that will (invariably) play bingo at the place where you’re at. You will pray on their lack of sharpness – you will need to inspect just how much they are paying attention beforehand. If you conclude that they aren’t really present, then you may chat them up and make friendly banter with them – all the while you’re carefully seeing if their ticket has a big chance of being a winning one. If this is the case, then at the key moment you will need to distract the attention of the person next to you so that you can swap your losing ticket with their winning ticket. There is a chance that they won’t notice this, if you play your cards right. Make sure that no one else notices you swapping the tickets as well.
Online Bingo Cheats
You may think we have saved the best for last, but this is not the case. Many people would like nothing better than to be able to cheat at online bingo, all from the comfort of their own home. But is this a viable option? Most likely not.
Online bingo features some of the most potent, most powerful security that some of the smartest online engineers have thought of. Meaning, that you will most certainly not be able to crack – if you were able to crack it, then you wouldn’t be reading this article in the first place. So, we’ll conclude that realistically it’s not possible to cheat at online bingo unless again, you know some of the software creators for the bingo rooms. But even in this case, you won’t easily be able to gain their confidence because of the fact that they will most likely not be foolish to ruin their career and face criminal charges just to help you to win a few dollars at online bingo.
And there you have it. These are only some of the most popular cheating methods that you can use for bingo. Be very careful if you plan on using them because the consequences can be severe.
