Online bingo and Keno
Online Bingo is one of the most well known and popular games for South African players. It’s a relatively simple game to play, but it does have some complications associated with it. Firstly, it works differently to how a real life version of the game plays, mainly because it’s on an interactive device rather than using a pen and paper. Secondly, because there are lots of different versions of Bingo available to players it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with the rules that are in place. We’ve gone over the most important aspects of online Bingo to make sure that you are fully up to speed with how the game is played. We’ve also covered some different rule variations to make sure that no matter which version of the game to come across, you’ll know what to do.

How to Play Standard Online Bingo
Playing standard online Bingo is a relatively simple process. Your first act should always be to find a Bingo site that you feel comfortable playing at. There are lots of different sites out there so you won’t have to worry about not being able to find one. Just look for one that has the best reviews and that should ensure that you play at a site that is both safe and of a high quality. Once you’ve signed up you’re ready to start thinking about playing.
Your first job after signing up is to make a deposit into your Bingo site account. Once you have done this you will be able to choose the game you want to play. Pick your Bingo game, pay the entry fee and then get ready to start.
The game will begin with a Bingo sheet appearing on your screen. These are the numbers that you will need to fill in so that you can attempt to win. As the numbers appear on the screen you will have to click on the correct number on the sheet. This will then fill it in, as long as it matches up to the number that appeared on the screen. If you click a number that hasn’t been drawn out then it won’t be filled in on the sheet as the game will be aware it hasn’t been drawn. Just like in real Bingo, if you miss a number then it won’t be automatically filled in for you, so you do have to stay aware when playing. Then over the course of the game if you manage to fill in the boxes in the right places then you will win the specific prizes that are on offer. Of course, just like any version of Bingo that you play, there is no guarantee that you will win.
Bingo will also have a number of different prizes available. So if you fill in a line then you will get a prize for that, it’s not just about filling in the whole sheet. That’s why it’s important to keep looking at your sheet in order to make sure you get all of the prizes that you’re eligible for.
How to Play Keno
Keno is one of the more popular variations of Bingo. It works in a slightly different manner to Bingo does, mainly in regard to the numbers that you have. This is because in Keno you are allowed to choose your own numbers. You can also choose a different amount of numbers when playing, which will change the levels of prize that are available.
Your first step is to choose your stake. Each Keno game will have different minimum and maximum stakes available, so just choose the stake that you’re most comfortable with and then you will be ready to start. After this you will need to choose your numbers. You can choose between 1 and 20 numbers on most Keno games, although some only allow between 1 and 10 to be chosen. This is out of a total of 80 numbers.
Once the game begins 20 balls will be drawn at random. This means that a quarter of the balls will be drawn from the machine. Depending on the amount of numbers that you have chosen, the odds of you drawing the right numbers will increase or decrease. For example, if you have chosen 20 numbers and you manage to match all 20 then this will offer the highest potential payout, due to the chance of this taking place being much lower than the other options. However, if you chose just a single ball then you would get a better payout for this than if you only got a single ball from a pick of 20. Each game will offer slightly different odds, so it’s best to check around for the best possible odds when playing Keno.
Keno might be one of the lesser known Bingo variations on the market, but it’s certainly one of the most fun. If you want to try out a different version of Bingo then Keno is certainly the game to give a try.
