King and Queen for the session:
– Queen was paid $9 for her lucky number
– King – no King.

If you are the King or Queen, remember to honk your horn on games with a Wild Ball that includes your number and on the Bonanza game if your number is one of the pre-called numbers. You must honk at the beginning of the game to qualify for a payout as that is when the ball is considered as being called.

Invite your friends and family to come and enjoy the fun at Bingo. Remember our minimum buy-in is only $10 and you can get a Starter Pack for $21 that includes 28 games. Four Speed games with a 60% payout, played at the beginning of the session at 6 PM, can be purchased for an extra $4.

Remember you get a free dauber when your birthday falls in the current bingo week (Sun – Sat), id is required for verification.

Also remember to bring your drivers license or ID card in case you win $100 or more on a single payout. Dept of Justice requires we record payouts of $100 or greater along with winners ID information. Don’t worry, we do not have to report any information to IRS unless over $2,500. Sorry, we do not have any payouts that BIG!!

Ink daubers are required for all players. No other form of marking sheets is valid. Of course we have daubers for sale in a variety of colors for $1.25, $1.50 & $1.75. We also have NEW FLUORESCENT daubers available for $1.75.

Doors open at 4:30 PM so you can come and get settled in and order some food before we start at 6 PM. We hope to see all of you at the next session.

_______GOOD LUCK EVERYONE———-
