Online bingo gives players the freedom to play whenever they feel like it, whether they’re on the go or relaxing at home.

You might not have previously thought about how the time of day that you play online bingo could affect your chances of winning, but in some cases it can! 

Read on to find out the best time of day to play online bingo, and the reasons why. 

The short answer: Play when you are competing with fewer players.

In a nutshell, the less players there are in an online bingo game, the greater your chance of winning a prize. This is because in many bingo games (except progressive jackpot games) the prize pot does not change depending on the number of players. So if less people are playing, you’ve got less competition to win a prize! 

For example, if 10 people are competing for a £100 prize, each player has a one in 10 chance of winning. However, if 50 people are competing for the same prize, they each have a one in 50 chance of winning.

Now that we know that less players means a greater chance of winning, we need to determine when are the least popular times for playing. Read on to find out!

Avoid the peak hours.

In online bingo, the peak hours are at weekends, at lunchtimes and during the evenings. This is because these are the times when people generally have free time because they’re not at work.

The online bingo rooms may also be slightly busier just before and after work, as some people play on their way to and from their workplace. 

If you’re looking for the best time to play online bingo, you should try to avoid peak hours to give you a greater chance of winning a prize!
