The Internet is replete with games of chance. Most of us will give a slip to the sites luring the potential players simply because it is believed that the chance of winning such games is one in hundred, if not thousand. For instance, with slots, you are not sure if the desired combination will ever turn up. And with bingo, you are always left wondering why the other player is always winning but you are left with just one number short?

Chance is always the overwhelming factor in deciding the winner. But a little knowledge of mathematics can perk up your winnings. The law of probability can in fact help you in deciding the winning combination in online slots and online bingo.

While playing online bingo, the players are so engrossed in playing that they tend to forget to study the game. Remember, in order to increase your chances against the best in the business, you have to become the best. And this can be achieved only by studying while playing the game. The most common observation that is missed by the players is that of the first ten numbers called, barring one or two, most of these have different digit endings. Most of the games are short ones, i.e., not more than twelve to fifteen calls long. It becomes all the more important for a good player to choose the card with number ending in different digits. The logic behind choosing different digit-ending numbers is the complex maze of law of probability.

This is explained thus. Lets say that the first number called in a game is L-24, then the probability that on the next draw, the second number will not end with the digit 4 is increased. This is true because there are more balls left having different ending digits than there are balls with numbers ending in 1. If the next number is I-37 then the probabilities are increased that the next number will not end in 4 or 7. For the first six numbers called in a game, the probabilities clearly favor different ending digits for all six. From the seventh number onwards, the probabilities favor pairing up one or more of the ending digits. This then accounts for the finding that approximately 60% of the first ten numbers called in any bingo game will have different digit endings.

Clearly, the law of probability is a sure winner in any game of chance!
