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.
