The Suite Blog >> Online Jackpot Sharing is Against the Rules

October 29, 2008 - I've never understood why some newscasters will report about an illegal activity and then proceed to show you how to go about and carry out that very same illegal activity. For instance, I recently saw a news segment on terrorism and bombing, which capped things off by showing you the basics of making a bomb!

So what does this have to do with online bingo? This is the bingo blog is it not? Well, nothing really. I just want to cover my tracks before I myself proceed to tell you about an illegal betting activity. Nice try, eh? The only thing is, by no means, do I condone this activity. Furthermore, it's stupid to even try it.

You may or may not have heard of it already. What I am referring to is called "jackpot sharing". In essence, it's collusion of the simplest kind. A group of bingo players (often just two or three players total) form a pact with one another that if any one of them wins the jackpot playing bingo, they will share the spoils.

Generally, the group of schemers will already know each other or will have met playing bingo before. They make a verbal agreement to log online at a bingo room at the same time, buy cards and compete in the same game(s). In some cases, the players may even go so far to fund each others accounts.

And here is where things get sticky. The majority of the time, these arrangements dissolve as a result of somebody not keeping their end of the bargain. For example, sometimes one player will go on a winning streak, while the other player(s) are not faring so well in the luck category. The player who is getting lucky all the time will then decide he is entitled to more winnings and stop sharing the jackpot with his compatriots.

It happens all the time folks. And guess what, online bingo rooms look for signs of jackpot sharing. If you think you can't be found out or that your arrangement is infallible, think again. So, don't do it. Play as many cards as you can, have fun and hope for some luck. That's pretty much all you can do at online bingo.
