Uncovering Entrepreneurial Insights: The Unexpected Parallels Between Bingo Patterns and Business Success


In bingo, players must form certain patterns on their cards, which could also be described as systems, in order to win. Players can also use different strategies to help them succeed.

Similar systems can also be used to make your business successful. Here is a quick look at some of the unexpected parallels between bingo patterns and business success.

How can bingo patterns and business success be compared?

There are many different bingo patterns that every player should know about, and these same patterns can also be used as a metaphor for business success.

Examples include the following:

  • Full house = retention
  • Outer edge = competition
  • Top/middle/bottom (sometimes referred to as Layer Cake) = communication between executive
  • Four corners = basic principles
  • Pyramid = the importance of the size of the team doing the work being double of the team above that’s ordering work
  • Numbers and letters = strategy

The key to a successful business starts in the planning stages early on. Having a well-researched business plan (like learning the rules of bingo before playing and understanding the different patterns) can help start you off on the right track.

You must then stay organized and determined to succeed, stay flexible and creative, and take calculated risks. Learn from your competitors (e.g., the other players), and find the right balance between work and play.

Where can I learn more about bingo patterns?

If you’re keen to learn more about the many different bingo patterns that currently exist to improve you as a player, there is a useful guide to various bingo patterns on the official Ask Gamblers website.

Where can I play bingo online?

The same website also has the latest unbiased reviews for over 1,000 fully licensed iGaming sites with a few bingo games. Some sites have entire sections dedicated to bingo, separate from the casino and sports betting products, and others may only have a handful of computer-generated bingo games.

Additionally, many of today’s best online bingo casinos also now have a few live dealer casino games that can be described as bingo-style games.

At 32red online casino, for example, which recently scrapped its bingo product, you can still find several popular bingo variants, including Immortal Romance Video Bingo, Don Bingote, Break da Bank Again Video Bingo, and Thunderstruck II Video Bingo.

These games can be accessed in both the real money mode and free play demo mode, and you can enjoy playing them from as little as $/€/£0.01 to $/€/£0.05 per round, up to around $/€/£10.00 per round.

When playing at dedicated bingo sites, the main types of bingo you are likely to come across are the following:

  • 30 Ball Bingo (which is also often called ‘speed bingo’)
  • 75 Ball Bingo (more popular in America, but also now catching on in many other parts of the world)
  • 80 Ball Bingo (specifically created to be played at dedicated bingo websites)
  • 90 Ball Bingo (this variant is the most popular of all bingo types)

Some of the most trusted iGaming sites where you can play several different types of online bingo games from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer are PlayFrank Casino, Trada Casino, Videoslots Casino, and Mr. Play Casino. Others include Bingo.com Casino, BitStarz Casino, Slotwolf Casino, Tsars Casino, bet365 Casino, and Sportsbet.io.

There are more than 1,000 sites to choose from, and you can find the secure links to these sites inside each website’s review at Ask Gamblers. In most countries where playing online bingo for real money is legal, you must be at least 18 years old.

However, before signing up to one of these sites, make sure that you are of legal age because, in the US and Canada, it might be 19 or 21. Also, depending on which country you live in will determine which of these fully licensed bingo sites you can legally register an account with.


If you want your business to be a success, learn the different patterns and then think of them as a metaphor and apply them to your business, just like some people use the moves in chess as a metaphor for life and in business. It can expand your mind and be a powerful tool.

Playing bingo or chess won’t guarantee that your business will be more successful than your competitors. However, it can help give you a new outlook on certain things and a different perspective.

Remember that the key to a successful business includes things like careful research, planning, strategic focus, marketing, finance, determination, leadership, public relations, and remaining committed to your goals.
