Wondering about the online bingo player who seems to win at bingo more often than others? Think there’s more behind her bingo winning streak than meets the eye? Then you’ll want to read on to find out the truth behind why some people win at bingo all the time while others don’t.
Bingo winning streaks aren’t much different than other online gaming winning streaks. Winning streaks happen at online casinos. And they happen at the online poker tables.
The fact is that some gamblers, whether they play online bingo or other forms of online entertainment, are born with a horseshoe up their you-know-what. And on the other side of the coin, others can barely spell horseshoe.
You’ll see dedicated online bingo players win at bingo game after game after game. You’ll see them take $100 prize pools, followed by 5-figure jackpots, followed by more big wins that will leave everyone around them speechless. Sometimes the online bingo winning streaks happen over the course of a week. Other times, they happen in less than 24 hours.

Now, in the online world, it’s common to hear things like, “Online gambling is fixed,” or, “there’s no way one person could be that lucky to win at bingo so many times.”
While frequent bingo players understand that it’s only natural for dedicated players to go on a winning streak or two, casual gamblers don’t understand how it’s humanly possible for one person to win at bingo so often.
But the truth of the matter? It happens just as much offline. And you don’t have to look far for proof.
Earlier this month, a 53-year-old bingo player from Maine won $2,000 playing live bingo at a local bricks-and-mortar bingo hall. The next day, she won $500,000 in a scratch lottery ticket.
Back-to-back wins. And not online.
Think that’s crazy? Wait until you hear this next one. While it’s not related to bingo, it does involve matching numbers.
Last April, a Virginia woman won $1 million TWICE in the same day. Again, a real-world winning streak where you can’t argue that technology played a role in fixing the results.
But even with all the offline stories, some people still believe that online bingo winning streaks shouldn’t happen so often to one person.
But the truth is, bingo isn’t exactly like the lottery. In online bingo, you’ve got to be able to react faster than anyone else to win. If you fill a bingo card at the same time as another player, the first person to shout bingo wins. If you’re late shouting bingo, which usually involves pressing a button online, you won’t win.
Online bingo players who are dedicated tend to have faster reaction times than casual bingo players. And that means they’re able to win more often.
What’s more, online bingo players who win at bingo more frequently likely play multiple bingo cards at the same time. In some cases, you can play as many as 30 cards simultaneously. They might seem like they’re winning more often, but if you actually calculate the win-to-card ratio, it’s probably equivalent to casual players who win less frequently.
