Some bingo games require that the numbers in the cards called would form a pattern. One can form several bingo patterns in bingo cards. Some required the players to form the “C” pattern, or “F” pattern and so many others. In even some bingo games, one needs to mark all of the numbers in the card.
The bingo patterns are often marked and highlighted in the bingo cards. A player merely marks the numbers on the bingo card and see if they correspond to the required pattern.
There are three basic designations on a bingo pattern. These are:
•Static or standard bingo patterns. These bingo patterns cannot be changed. As the name static implies, the patterns are permanent on the Bingo card. The game is won only once the pattern is achieved and all numbers that form part of the pattern are marked. For instance, an “X” pattern on the bingo card, the game is won once the “X” patter is completed or formed.
•Crazy bingo patterns. These bingo patterns allow that the cards be rotated by 90 degrees such as by 90°, 180° or 270°. An example of this would be the Plus Sign pattern.
•Wild bingo patterns. The patterns are scattered in these bingo cards. The bingo pattern is in the same place but can be located anywhere on the card. For instance, an L pattern formed in anyway.
Sometimes pattern bingo games can be done in few minutes. At other times, it could take ages to finish one game depending on the numbers and letters being called. One needs luck to be able to form the desired pattern as quickly as possible. To increase one’s luck, it would be a good idea to get more bingo cards. This does not guarantee a win however.
Bingo patterns provide an interesting twist to the concept of bingo games. This is also more challenging than the normal bingo games. A pattern bingo game often demands more attentiont than the standard bingo. It would be a good idea to try one’s luck in bingo patterns every now and then, to experience some degree of difficulty.
