I am new to playing bingo and always thought it was all luck but I went to a casino in vegas over a week for 4 visits and noticed the same 2 people win about 50 percent of the games.The venue only has about 30-50 people at each session and I assume they are buying many more cards then everyone else in a room with so few players.This seems unfair and looks like a monopoly.I asked the bingo personnel how much the 2 bingo lords were playing but they didn't tell me or seem to even care about this unfair situation.Is there some secret these 2 top bingo "professionals" know that I don't or should I just start buying a ton of cards?Isn't there a limit to how many cards can be put in the electronic dauber machines.I would appreciate any advice as a dumbfounded bingo deer in the headlights.

Where are you playing? Which sessions? What kind of cards do these card-hogs buy?

There used to be a good advantage play at the Red Rock. Me and another card hog would spend about $500 each on a certain kind of card and win most of the time. I think other players complained about it because we got a lot of dirty looks and they eventually implemented card limits.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

The woman always wining sits right by the caller with her husband and sometimes her daughter .I bought 20 dual daubs with no real carryover and they still beat me I guess they are playing maybe 50 or more a session.They always seem to win the coveralls and I never see them miss a session from 11am to 9pm.I doubt they could do this at a bigger casino.I don't even know if there are limits on the amount of cards you can buy.What would your advice be in this situation...I'm tired of them dominating every session.Another woman comes in from Hawaii and just lives at the hotel for a month at a time.Ive never seen either one of them playing any machines or tables.How much could they be making a year doing this I wonder.The host told me whoever buys the most cards always wins...how much do you think I should play a session to compete with those razorbacks.LAST SATURDAY THERE WERE ONLY 31 people at the 9am session and she won dual daub And double bingo and the Hawaiian lady won the coverall.Is this a big advantage situation or could I blow a lot of money trying to compete with them....thanks Casey bungo

See perhaps: Advantage Players and Bingo thread...

There are advantages to attending the less numerous sessions, so time of day and morning weather reports may be significant.

If you've sat near them its plain you should be able to see how many cards they have in front of them, right?

All their cards are in the electronic dauber machines so I don't know but I'm sure they buy at least the 3 large rainbows...tha win the drawings a lot on as night so I think they must be loading the barrel with all the tickets they earn from bingo.

In case anyone else comes across this like I did years later...I used to play bingo a few times a year in Vegas, coming from Hawaii. We'd stay about a week and play every bingo session. Between my spouse and I, we spent around $800 per session and would win quite a bit. Many folks would spend $50 a session and then always complain when we would win. Of course our odds are higher, given we spent more than 10x the amount they did. Unfortunately, that's how bingo works. We didn't like spending that amount but it's necessary if you're trying to win
