What is Responsible Gambling?

Sitting down to play our favourite online slot and bingo games can be fun and a great way to unwind, however, there are times when responsible gambling takes a back seat and it becomes all about winning. It is really important that if you start to notice potentially unhealthy patterns of behaviour that you get help to ensure that you do not start developing an addiction.

There are a number of ways that online gaming companies can help you if you think things are getting out of control as well as some effective actions you can take yourself.

Set the Limits

When you sign up for an account you can specify the limit to which you will play up to and after that, the casino or bingo site will no longer process payments. There is also usually a three card maximum rule that won’t allow you to add more cards to the account, nor can you register anyone else’s.

It is vital to keep track of your finances to ensure that you are staying within your budget and to stop you from over-spending.

Walk Away

It can be so easy to lose track of the time when playing, particularly when you have had a lucky streak, however, taking regular breaks is healthy and just getting up and leaving the computer or mobile device to do something else can really help give you a reality check and let you get on with other more important things.

Set a game-play goal for yourself that you will get up and do something else after 1 hour. Set an alarm that will alert you when your time is up and stick to it. You can also commit to only playing with a set amount, for example, £10. Once you have deposited this and used it then it’s time to move on.

It is not difficult to become emotionally invested in the game and have a competitive mindset but these unhealthy behaviours can quickly escalate into an addiction so it is important to recognise these signs early on.

Know where to go

At the bottom of most online gambling establishments are lists of places sites you can visit to get help if you are starting to feel that things are getting out of control. GamCare is an invaluable tool and can give you advice on limiting your exposure to these sites using blocking software and can give you additional support through their dedicated helpline.

The gaming establishment themselves will also have a committed section that will offer advice and encourage you to take regular breaks so that you can continue to have fun playing but realise that you have to do so in a responsible way.

Do Bingo Strategies Really Work?

There’s quite a lot of information going around on the internet about strategies you can use to improve your bingo time. However, you have to use this quite carefully as not all of them are really true. We’re here to dispel the myths and teach you how to really improve your game.

Mathematical Strategies

Quite a few mathematicians have put their heads together to figure out if there’s a way to win bingo a bit more often. They’ve used averages and mediums to be able to work out if there really is an ideal card. Some believe that a wider spread of numbers will statistically bring you more luck, whereas others think that the median number holds the secret.

This is all well and good, however it doesn’t have a massive impact on online bingo. As you’re not able to pick your own numbers with most online games, you can’t really create your ideal bingo card. The only way we can see this helping you out is to assess the kind of tickets you have.

Facts and Figures

If you are mathematically minded, then you can use facts and figures to improve your bingo time. Use the RTP (return to player) of your games in order to figure out whether they’re the best ones to get playing on. This allows you to figure out how often people really win on the game and then you can use this information to decide if you want to play it.

If you open up a slot or bingo game, you will be able to find out the average RTP. This is usually around 90%, so you can use this to figure out which games are right for you.

Betting Strategies

There are many betting strategies that do actually work for players. One of the best ways to maximise your bingo time is to play conservatively and responsibly. This is really simple and actually allows you to build up a buffer as you play. Then, whether you win or lose you’re still up overall.

You can use this to mix up your gameplay time too. For example, you can create a nice buffer using penny games and then go for the more expensive games as you progress. This means that you’re always ahead.

Most of all, you should know when to quit! You don’t want to be up a large amount and then dwindle it away. Take your withdrawal times into consideration too.

That’s pretty much all you need to know about bingo strategies that can have an effect on your bet. Use these well and you will be able to win more often, you can go practice them in our lobby!

Top Tips for being a Responsible Player

We want all of our players to be enjoying our games responsibly here, as we want you all to be happy little bingo players. If you don’t know what this means, it’s basically choosing to gamble in a way that will keep you safe from overspending or maybe developing an addiction.

Here are our top tips to make sure you’re playing in a responsible fashion.

Keep an Eye on your Bankroll

If you feel like you’re burning through money faster or topping up a bit more often than you’d like, then it may be time to assess your spend. Keeping an eye on your bankroll and limiting yourself will help you to stay out of trouble. Think about how much you want to spend over your time on the site and then stick to that.

This will help you to stay abreast of your spend, rather than having it all coming down at once. Then, you can take steps to limit yourself if you feel like you’re overspending. You don’t want to end up spending more than you have!

You can also set limits within your account. This stops you from overspending as there are limits to what you can actually deposit on the site. Then, you don’t just have to rely on your own willpower.

Use Reality Checks

As you can see on our site, we have a number of what’s known as reality checks. These keep you grounded by showing you the time and encouraging you to take a break if you need it. This means that you’re not playing for a long time without realising just how much has passed.

Don’t just ignore these when they pop up, actually use them as intended. It’s a good idea to take a break now and again if you’re at a screen for a long period of time.

If you find yourself becoming frustrated with a game or getting annoyed, definitely make sure you’re taking a break. You don’t want to get too emotionally invested and irritated by playing.

Take a Break

On our site, you are able to take a break and self-exclude yourself. This can be for a set period of time or indefinitely. Use this tool if you want to make sure you can’t get back into your account until you’re in a better frame of mind.

Taking a little break from gambling, for a week or a month, can drastically change how you feel about it. You can come back refreshed and feeling better, which is all great for players.

Being a responsible player is a great habit to get into. Temper all the fun you’re having with us with a bit of caution and you’ll really enjoy yourself!

Online Bingo Security Tips

The BBC recently reported figures from an official survey that looked into the effects of cybercrime. The report found that there were an estimated 3.6 million cases of fraud and over 2 million computer misuse offences in just one year. The report further highlighted that offences had risen 8% for the year and argued that fraud was now the most common crime in the UK. As a result, we thought we would come up with some tips and tricks for our bingo roomies on how they can stay safe playing online bingo!

General Device Security

This is super basic stuff and is all about the general security on your computer, mobile, or laptop. The firewall is arguably the most basic bit of security that you can activate and most devices will come with one built in so be sure to check that it is switched on. You would be amazed at how many players are unaware that their firewall has been turned off.

Password Choice

Your bingo account has access to real funds and if your password is compromised then your account can also be compromised. Of course, most players will have their own password protocol but in a general sense try not to make the password easy to guess. We know this sounds trivial but people’s passwords get hacked or guessed every day so it’s better to be safe than sorry. A combination of letters and numbers with some uppercase and some lowercase is always advised to give you the most robust password possible.

General Lobby Tips

As you are probably aware, Cheers Bingo has a lot of roomies and while the vast majority are just there to enjoy the game, you can never be too careful so we would not recommend using your real name as a username and we generally advise from giving it out in the chat although this is entirely up to yourself. Of course, never give out your address or phone number or even your date of birth!

Your Deposit Account

It can be tempting to make a large deposit and leave the funds in your bingo account for the sake of convenience. Before doing this make sure you have read our wagering requirements so that you understand how easily a big withdrawal can be made. Additionally, consider making deposits when you are physically about to play the game so that you do not need to keep money in your bingo account any longer than necessary.

Are You Secure?

These are just a number of things you can consider when staying safe online. We would recommend reviewing your account security and using this article as a checklist. Also, if you have any other ideas for bingo security then leave us a message on Facebook or Twitter and we will add them to this list. Have fun and stay safe!

How to Play the Can Can Slot

Regular players at Cheers Bingo will know that we love to add more ways to play into our lobby. One of our most recent slot game additions in the Can Can slot, those who love great value will already be au fait with this slot.

Let’s take a look at what makes this slot game one of our winners!

How Does the Game Look?

As you would expect from a game with this title, there’s a distinctly French theme going on with these reels. The game is set on a stage, with luxurious red curtains forming the backdrop where the action takes place. All of the options to change the bet are in the seats in the front row, which is a pretty cool style choice.

On the reels you can see symbols that will evoke the old theatre style, with masks and fancy dress playing a role here. Alongside them, you’ll see landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and even some playing card symbols too.

Betting on the Can Can Slot

As you can change the bet and the lines of this slot game, it can be played from a mere 1p with us. If you want to boost the bet and your chances to win, then you can move the bet to up to £50 per spin.

When you match up three symbols, a jackpot will be triggered that multiplies your cash. This will act upon the wager that you make, so if you bet more then you could win more.

Special Features and Symbols

Some slot games only have a few features but this is not one of them, as you’ll find oodles of lovely special symbols. Here’s what you can expect to find with this game:

  • Scatter Symbols – The theatre masks that you see on these reels are more than just a pretty face, as they will treat you to free spins. You’ll get 6 free games when you see 3 of the happy or sad masks anywhere on the reels. When you see more scatter symbols during this round, you’ll earn more free games.
  • Substitution Symbol – The golden dancer is the wild symbol of this game and she will substitute for all symbols but the scatter. Watch out for encores of this symbol, as she appears frequently.
  • Gamble Feature – Once you’ve managed to gain a win on this game, you have the option to gamble your jackpot. This works by prompting you to pick a card suit or colour before it is revealed. If you are correct your winnings will be increased.

If you’re a Francophile that loves all things glamorous then be sure to check out the Can Can slot game with us, make sure you grab a bonus to play with too.
