The Best Strategy to Use When Playing Spingo

In this previous post we introduced to you what is Spingo and gave you the reasons if the game is worth your time and effort.

Basically, Spingo is the combination of two favourite casino games: Roulette and Bingo. Designed by Microgaming, this unique game draws inspiration from the spinning action brought by roulette. It has a wheel and numbered slots. Meanwhile, the chutes to where multiple balls come out bears significant semblance to the game of bingo.

Like roulette, Spingo works in such a way that the player predicts the result of each spin. The game, however, uses a total of 21 balls with two each numbered from 1 to 10, plus one ball that has a number zero. The wheel, on the other hand, has 25 coloured slots (8 yellow, 8 red, 8 blue, and 1 green).

For more basic information of the game and how to play it, please refer to this link. As of this particular post, we’re only going to talk about the strategy on how to win.

First off, let’s look at the house advantage on each type of bets you could make when playing Spingo:

Number bet – 4.76%

Colour bet – 4%

Zero numbered bet – 4.76%

Green colour bet – 4%

Colour and number bet – 2.48%

Even/Odd bet – 4.76%

Low/High (1-5/6-10) – 4.76%

Go for Combinations

As you can see, the colour and number bet has the lowest house edge in Spingo. And so, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise when experts of this game recommends making combination bets. For instance, you want to make a bet on the number nine. You could definitely just make a straight up bet.  However, you’re further thinning out the house edge if you bet on each of the three possible results of nine: Red 9, Blue 9, and Yellow 9. Furthermore, the payout of the number and color combination is 31:1, which is the largest in the game. The specific number (1-10), on the other hand, only pays 9 to 1.

Cover as Much as Possible

If you plan to wager with the amount larger than the minimum, it’s best to do it while covering a huge part of the betting layout. For example, if you intend to make a £10 bet on yellow, it would be better if you put instead ten £1 bets on all the yellow numbers. Similarly, this cuts off the house edge significantly while you raise up your odds of winning.

Other Bets

You can always experiment with the type of bets that you can make in Spingo, and it’s quite profitable, to say the least. For instance, instead of betting £3 on the number 6 (which would win £27), why not bet £1 on a Blue 6, Yellow 6, or Red 6. This way, you can make £2 (32:1 payout) more of profit if any of the three bets come out.

As with roulette and any other online casino games, Spingo still relies heavily on luck and there’s no way that a player can influence the outcome of a spin. Even more so that most of Spingo games available to play online is RNG or Random Number Generated.

We still have to see more playing strategies to be made of this game. But to play Spingo still has a lot of potential for excitement and profits to be made like our favourite online roulette.
