Games of Risk and Reward- Bingo and Blackjack

By: Gen Wright


Bingo and Blackjack are two games that seem to put a lot of stock in the idea of Fate. After all, you don't know what that card is laying facedown on the felt table. Will it take you to 21 or 22? Should you hit or stay? The same can be said of Bingo. In Bingo, how are you supposed to have any control whatsoever over the letters and numbers that the moderator calls out? It seems like you don't have to have any skill at all to play and win at either game. That, in fact, is true. But if you want to be a champion, you are not going to be able to get there on beginner's luck. You must first start with a clear understanding of each game, and go from there.

The Bingo Game Rules all start with how many cards you choose to play, and at what wager. Bingo halls often reward the player, who tempers common sense with an embrace of risk by offering specials like buy two cards with which to play, and get one free. Once you have selected the number of cards you are playing, use your blotters to blot out the centerpiece on each card. From there, it is simply a matter of listening to the caller read out the letter-and-number combinations, and matching five in a row, by horizontal, diagonal, or vertical means.

Quick thinking and keen observation are two skills that you must have when playing, especially after having developed a clear understanding of the Bingo Game Rules. It also helps when you are playing multiple cards. If you are playing in a Bingo hall or casino, you will want to make sure that you call out your Bingos as you notice them, and you will want to notice them as quickly as possible, because as the Bingo Game Rules state, the more Bingos you have, the larger your piece of the money pie is.

Blackjack is just as easy to learn as Bingo. Also known as "21," Blackjack is a game where the players are each dealt two cards. One card is left on its face, while the other is dealt on top of it, face showing. Only the player with the two cards knows what his concealed card is showing. Based on what your first two cards are showing, you will have to determine whether or not to "hit" or "stick." If you "hit," that means you take a third card. If you "stick," you keep what you have and play two cards with the hope of being the closest player to the number 21. Numerical cards are taken at face value, while face cards usually hold a value of 10. Aces are versatile, meaning they can represent one or eleven, to be determined by the player, but it is usually common sense that tells a player which to select.

While the two games are very different, they do still require a great deal of observational skills and quick thinking. If you can learn to master these two skills, you will become the master of these two great games.
