Are bingo sites fixed?

Is it possible for a bingo site to fix the results of the games in their favour?

Unfortunately, yes. There are bogus bingo sites out there that operate without a licence and there is a high possibility that they've rigged the games or fixed the house edge in their favour.

A house edge is the percentage of the sales that a bingo operator keeps as their profit. Keep in mind that it may vary depending on the level of the game. In higher-level bingo games, the house edge tends to be bigger. It is also worth mentioning that bingo operators take a fixed share of the house edge to collect the jackpot amount.

This is the sad and terrifying truth. There are dodgy bingo operators out there that tweak the house edge to their favour, leaving players with lower chances of winning. Thankfully, there are regulatory boards that work hard to lower the prevalence of these bogus bingo sites.

The only way a bingo site acquires an operating licence is by passing the unforgiving standards of regulatory boards. These regulators make sure that a bingo operator possesses a secure environment for online gaming. Moreover, they check if the site keeps the house edge within a fair degree. Licenced bingo operators have passed tests for security, reliability and fairness. Here is a list of gaming authorities recognised by the International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR):

• Curaçao: Curaçao Gaming Control Board

• Alderney: Alderney Gambling Control Commission

• France: Autorite de Regulation Des Jeux en Ligne (ARJEL)

• Gibraltar: Government of Gibraltar, Gaming Division

• Isle of Man: Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission

• Italy: Agenzia Delle Dogane e Dei Monopoli (formerly AAMS)

• Malta: Malta Gaming Authority

• United Kingdom: Gambling Commission

You may also want to check if a bingo operator has acquired a seal of approval from independent site reviewers like the e-Commerce and Online Gaming Registration and Assurance (eCOGRA). Reputable bingo sites regularly have their games and software reviewed by third-party auditors to ensure their customers' peace of mind.
