Tippett Bingo stratgegy

Another person who recognised that you can increase your chances at bingo by using strategy was L.H.C. Tippett. Leonard Henry Caleb Tippett was a British statistician who was born in 1902 and passed away in 1985. He studied in London and then Manchester university and during his life he came up with different mathematical theories which are now named after him.

His theory on bingo was quite simple compared to some of the other formulas he had worked out over his lifetime. His theory was presented in one of his books called ‘Random Sampling Numbers’ where he quotes: “As a random sample is increased in size, it gives a result that comes closer and closer to the population value”.

Quite simply put, by analysing the the likelihood of and probabilities of the numbers that can some up in 75 ball bingo, the longer the game went on the more likely that the numbers that are drawn will be closer to the medium number which is 38. If a shorter form of bingo were to be played than number were more likely to be drawn at the ‘extreme’s’ (low or high numbers).


So your strategy here would be to:

1) Analyse what type of game you are playing

2) Understand whether it is a shorter variant or longer variant of the game


If it is a shorter variant, try to select tickets/cards that have more low and high numbers.

If it is a longer variant of the game then choose bingo tickers/cards with more middle numbers.

By taking a look at the bingo pattern to be win in 75 ball bingo you will quickly notice whether they will be easier to get (5 squares horizontally) or whether it will take longer with more complex patterns like a flag or similar shape.

Best of luck at the tables and thank you Mr Tippett! If you’d like to have a read of the Granville strategy to compare and see whether you think he came up with a better strategy you can do so by clicking here.
