1. Strategize your moves 

Strategy is your only friend in the game of online Ludo. No matter which format of ludo you play, ensure you have a strategy right from the start. Be it Ludo Turbo, Ludo Supreme, or Ludo Ninja, strategy is what will keep you afloat.

Ludo trick 1 - Strategize your moves

2. Do not slack

Just like a football match where one doesn’t know till the last second of the 90th minute if either of the team is going to score a goal, in Ludo too, you do not know. You snooze, you lose. 

3. Safeguard your best man

Make sure the token that is ahead of all of your other tokens is the safest. In all three ludo games from Zupee, a token earns a point when it moves a box. That being said, the token that has moved the most boxes will have naturally scored the most number of points. An opponent will try their best to cut this particular token as, in doing so, they will ensure that all points you scored on that token are lost. 

Ludo tips 3 - Safeguard your token

4. Do not underestimate your opponent! 

In an online game of Ludo, your opponent is your enemy and the game is your battlefield. Remember you are here to win the money and that will only happen when your opponent loses. So, be ruthless when it comes to cutting an enemy’s token. The more you cut, the more chances you have of winning the game. 

5. Use ‘time’ to your advantage 

There are two kinds of time elements in Zupee’s ludo games. One is a timer that shows the time limit that is defined for every match, and two is a timer that shows you how long before you run out of time to play your turn. Both are important. It can make or break your game. Know when to take longer to think your turn through and when to play in an instant. 

Ludo tip 5 - Use time to your advantage

6. Play with all your tokens

Unlike the traditional ludo, all tokens are open in online ludo. Use it to your advantage and enter the battlefield with all your tokens. Spread out so you get an advantage over your opponent. For example, an opponent has more chances of cutting your tokens when they are all in the same place. Avoid this situation by strategically placing your tokens all over the board. 

7. Park the token at the start & capture

You may want to consider parking a token near your start point while you move the rest of your tokens ahead. Staying in the safe boxes near your starting point will give you an advantage point and will help you stop your opponents from moving ahead. Try this strategy out for yourself. 

Ludo Trick 7 to win the online game - Park the token at the start point

8. Utilise the Safe boxes

The safe boxes are your best friends in the game of Ludo. As a rule, when a token enters the safe box, it can’t be cut by an opponent’s token. There are 8 safe boxes in all three online ludo games. The box from where each player starts their game is a safe box and every eighth box from that first box is a safe box too. Use the safe boxes when you are entering an opponent’s turf. These might come in real handy. 

9. Know your opponent 

It is always good to know whom you are playing against. Our ludo games have more than 2 players and most of them are regular ludo players. So, acquaint yourself with how good a player you are playing with by clicking on their profile once the game starts. You can see the number of their wins and their losses which might help you strategize better. 

Ludo Trick 9 for winning - Know your opponent

10. Dice value division

When you get a big number on the dice, use it to move the token that is closest to home. This way, you will ensure it gets to the homerun area sooner which not only keeps your token safe but also takes you closer to victory. Invest the smaller dice values on tokens that haven’t progressed much in the game so even if they do get cut, you will not be losing a chunk of the points accumulated. 

11. Rule of 7

Try and stay 7 boxes ahead of your opponent. The highest number of the dice is 6 and the probability of your opponent getting a 2 after that is less. So, try and stay ahead of 7 boxes of your opponent’s token. 

Ludo Online Trick 11 - Stay 7 boxes ahead

12. Remember your tokens positions 

DO NOT SLACK should be your motto while playing online ludo. Always remember where your tokens are so you know which token to move when you get a number that can give you an advantage over your opponent. This also helps you not miss a chance to cut your opponent’s token. 

13. Home>Kill 

When you are closer to Home and are presented with a chance to kill, don’t take it until you know you can still make it home without your moves or timer running out. Remember, you get 56 points when you reach home and only one extra turn when you cut an opponent’s token, and the game’s winner is decided based on the highest score.

Ludo tip 13 - Home> Kill

14. Hone your skills 

Like any other skill game, online ludo too needs practice. A lot of it. Use the Free game option to hone your skills. Gradually go on to playing games for money. You can start from as low as Rs.5 and work your way up.

15. Choose your format based on risk 

Zupee’s online ludo games have multiple formats like 1vs1 battle, 1 winner, 2 winners, and 3 winners. Based on your risk appetite, choose which game suits you best. If you want to play safe, then choose a 3-winner or 2-winner game where your chances of winning and taking money back home are a lot more compared to the 1vs1 battle and 1-winner format games. 

Use these tips and tricks to win an online game of Ludo with Zupee games. Along with tips and tricks, it is important to remember the rules and the fouls of each game.
