How much does bingo cost?
Regular game prices vary depending on the session. A buy-in will range from $2 to $10 dollars, which will include 1 or 2 of the regular game packs. The buy-in covers 10 to 14 regular games. Early games, Blackouts (except on Sizzler), and other add-on games are sold separately at $1 each (They may come in packages where other BOGO’s may apply). Typically, to play one of every game for the session would cost approximately $20. Prices and payouts will vary on advertised specials.
How long does bingo last?
A regular session typically lasts about 3 – 3 ½ hours. Afternoon sessions offer a 10 minute intermission to get up, stretch, and grab a bite to eat. The Evening sessions offer a 10 minute intermission and a 5 minute break.
Do I have to buy-in to sit in the hall during session?
Yes-You must have a buy-in receipt for each person seated in the hall during the play of games. Each person is required to purchase the minimum buy-in for that session. You are not required to attend the entire session, however, there is no discount given for late buy-ins. Also the buy-in tills close immediately following our intermission. No additional games may be purchased or played without a buy-in receipt.
What are those machines people use?
Some people like to play several games at one time, and the machines allow players to play many bingo cards at once. The machine keeps track of all the cards, and even tells you when to yell bingo! The PHD is a portable device in which the player must hit “enter” after each ball call to enter the numbers into the machine.
What do I do when I get a bingo?
Yell BINGO! You must yell bingo loud enough to stop play. If the caller does not say “check for a possible Bingo” They may not have heard you, so yell again. The floor clerk then they will verify your bingo. They will take your information to the paymaster and return with your payout! It is common for people to yell bingo and not have a valid bingo. We call that “practice.” If you think you could have a bingo, it is better to yell than to miss out on the prize.
Is it possible for two people to bingo at the same time?
Yes, it is possible that two or more people bingo at the same time. In this event payouts will be split evenly amongst all of the winners based on their level of play.
Is there a winner on every game?
Yes! That’s the cool thing about bingo. All games are played until someone wins. There will be a winner on every game.
