BINGO!

Do any of you play?   If so  - why?   And how much do you spend -  I have 2 friends who do and like it.   They keep wanting me go, but I haven't been able to coordinate a time with them.

Then - I started volunteering to work bingo as a fundraiser for my kids swim team.   The smoke is the worst, and the amount of $$$ people spend on instants.   Not everyone of course - but some for sure.

Just curious not judging.   It's helping me out alot with meet fees.....

My mom actually called me today and said if I don't have the baby by Thursday she wants to take all her kids to bingo lol. I've only been once. My mom paid and it was around 25 bucks. I won 50 and had bingo 2 times that I didn't call in time :-(

I enjoy playing though I don't go often. And I usually only buy one packet of whatever the place I go to has. They range from 14-30 bucks. 

Once I had to beg DH and promise unspeakable pleasures for him later that night if he went with me. He ended up winning $80 and thought it was the best thing in the world. Then he just HAD to go with me the next time and he didn't win anything. So now Bingo is stupid and he will never go again

that stinks about your bingos!   I have to say, they are really good about asking again if there are no other bingos.... here.   

I think it's about the same if you just play bingo - it's the instants that blow me away.   There are 8- 10 of uss selling them, and I know I've sold more than 1,000 myself......

Plus there is a counter for separate instant games, and "extras" 

It's mostly just new to me I guess......

I love bingo. The most I have ever spend on it was $14 and I played the paper kind and the electronic one at the same time. That night I won $500 :) would have been $1,000 but since there was another winner too then we had to split the money.

oh, I wish it was here!     It is in restaurants, I think it is in bars (but not sure) but bingo halls - well, there is a non-smoking room but it's really small.

congrats! 

  most of the games are $100 games, and usually only 1 winner.    Usually a couple with 2, and some with 3, but so far haven't seen more than that....
