Butlers Bingo are a rare visitor to these pages as their promotions pretty much don't change from month to month. However, they've well and truly been caught up in the spirit of the festive season and they're giving one lucky player the chance to win a brand new car. Up for grabs in a brand new Hynudai i20 or a £10,000 cash alternative.
For your chance to win a new car or cash prize to start off the New Year all you have to do is play in the daily "Win A Car" games at Butlers Bingo. Games play throughout the day and tickets cost 30p. In order to win the car you'll need to call house within a fixed number of calls.
The Odds Of Calling House In 40 Calls
The promotion is due to run until the start of 2018, but will end sooner if the car is won during the games. However, if the car isn't won by the end of the year, the number of calls required to win will increase on the 1st January until the car is won.
At present (14th December) the number of calls required to win the car jackpot is 40. The chances of winning a 90 ball game in this number of calls according to The Wizard Of Odds is 1 in 1138478! By adding another ball (so bingo in 41 calls) reduces the odds down to 1 in 721962. The odds are even better at 50 calls when they become 1 in 20346.
In truth, the car could be won at any time as after all it is possible to get a full house in 40 calls or less. However, is there an optimum time to get involved with this promotion? We looked at data from over 170,000 games played at one site (not Butlers Bingo btw).
Is There A Best Time To Play?
What we discovered was that 0.03% of games played were won in 40 calls or less. At 48 calls or less, just over 2% of games are won whilst the number increases to 10% when you hit 53. Jump up to 61 calls and you find that over half of the games are won, whilst 75% are won in 64 calls or less. Almost all games were won when the number of calls required reached 75.
The graph above shows in red the number of games as a percentage won at calls 40 to 75 in a sample set of 90 ball games. The blue blocks show the total percentage of games won (i.e. 40 calls or less, 41 calls or less etc). The x-axis is correct for the red chart, but needs to be multiplied by 10 for the blue chart (so in this case 10 represents 100%).
Based on this data, our advice would be to keep an eye on the win a car games and pick and choose when to play - especially when the calls required are in the 40s. However, if the number of calls required to win gets in to the higher 50s then those are the ones you might want to think about not missing.
Good luck if you decide to get involved with the Butlers Bingo win a car promotion. We'll be keeping an eye out for news of the winner - and just how many calls were required for the prize to be awarded.
