BINGO, BINGO – Can’t get enough of BINGO
If it’s Thursday that means it’s time for Thursday Night Progressive Bingo. Doors and Kitchen Concession area open at 5pm. Early Bird Games begin at 6:15 – 5 games are played and books with 5 games per sheet (25 chances to win) sell for $5. Prizes vary based on amount of books sold and average around $20 per game. Regular games start around 7pm. We play 13 games in total – the last is our Progressive Jackpot Coverall Game. Book packets range in price from $6.50 (3 games to a page), $12 (6 games to a page) and $17 (9 games to a page). All 13 games come in that packet and you can purchase additional coverall sheets for $2 each for Game 13. The Jackpot starts at $300 to cover all squares on your game card in 48 numbers or less. Each week the jackpot rolls over the number of bingo numbers called increases by 1 and a portion of the book sales is added to grow the jackpot until it’s won. If you live within a 4 mile radius of the Senior Resource Center, we also have Bob driving the Bingo Bus – $2.00 per ride. Please call and make bus reservations by 3pm on Thursday (715-634-3000).
Fridays are Casual Fun Bingo held in the Hayward Senior Center Dining room after lunch on Fridays from 1 to 3pm. Games are on slider cards for 25 cents each – no big jackpots but a lot of fun for a minimal investment if you just enjoy playing the game. Casual Fun Bingo is also played the 4th Thursday of every month at the Exeland Meal site – call to get the schedule so you don’t miss out.
We are pleased to announce that starting in January we will resume Bingo on the ROAD. Join us at TNT Bar and Grill on Main Street in Hayward (across from Tremblays). It’s winter time so you know what that means – plenty of parking on Main Street!!!! TNT’s does a Burger Monday special (from 4 to 6pm) and has a great menu of tasty offerings and all the right drinks. We will be doing bingo from 6 to 8pm. Games are $1 each with a 50/50 split pot. Find your slider card with just the right set of lucky numbers and come out and have a great time with us. Bingo will be held twice a month – January 14th and 28, February 11 and 25 and March 11 and 25.
