Hello Bingo Players!
We are happy to announce we have opened our doors on Tuesday, July 7th. As you can imagine, we will have a few things to ask of you as you step through our doors for the first time in almost 4 months.
In order for us to be open, we are required to do things a bit different than we are all used to. I’m sure all of you will understand and together we can make bingo at the forum a great experience.
Please believe us when we say a lot of thought has been put into us reopening, with the safety of our customers and staff being the highest priority.
Please review the new guidelines and reservation tab below.

  1. Due to the social distancing guidelines, we have had to drastically reduce our table and seating capacity. Therefore, the customer demand for seating might be higher than what we can safely fit in our building. At least in the short term, we will be using a phone-in reservation system to guarantee seating until capacity is reached. If there are available spots, walk-ins will be permitted until table / seating capacity is reached on a first come first serve basis. Please review the reservation tab on this website for more information.
  2. Bingo is open on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
  3. Please sit at your assigned table and sit with who you booked with.
  4. We will only be seating people on one side of the table, with a maximum of 2 per table, to ensure staff can sell cards without getting too close. We highly encourage customers to sit in pairs, but will make allowances for those customers who might be playing bingo without anyone in their 10 person gathering limit. UPDATE: We have added some tables for 3 and 4 people to sit together who are in the same social bubble.
  5. Staff will be required to wear masks on the floor and follow a sanitizing schedule.
  6. Customers will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entry into the bingo hall.
  7. It is highly recommended that you bring a bottle of hand sanitizer with your bingo supplies for your personal use at your table. Several hand sanitizer dispensers will be available in the hall as well..
  8. The new Public Health requirement is that masks must be worn at all times in indoor public places. This includes Bingo.
  9. Please respect the 6 foot social distancing rules, we have done our best to ensure this is easily done within the hall. Please be patient and try and follow the rules the best you can.
  10. We will try and disinfect all high touch surfaces regularly during the night.
  11. When bingo is over we will have to follow a strict exiting procedure. We will go row by row. If you are nervous or are not in a hurry please be patient and wait until everyone has exited.
  12. Unfortunately, due to our diminished in-hall capacity, our pricing and prize structure has been slightly altered. Please review the bingo format section of this website for details.
  13. At the present time, there will be no canteen service or water station. There will be a pop / water vending machine that will be sanitized throughout the night. At this time, please feel free to bring whatever food requirements you might have, as well as a water bottle.
  14. Our loyalty program has restarted in September. Please remember to bring your loyalty card.
  15. For the health and safety of everyone in our facility, customers displaying any of the signs of COVID-19 will be refused entry. Please stay home and cancel your reservation if you have one of the following symptoms of COVID-19:
  16. If possible, please try to have exact change for each cash transaction. Especially for floor sales
    1. fever (chills, sweats)
    2. cough or worsening of a previous cough
    3. sore throat
    4. Headache
    5. shortness of breath
    6. muscle aches
    7. Sneezing
    8. nasal congestion or runny nose
    9. hoarse voice
    10. Diarrhea
    11. unusual fatigue
    12. loss of sense of smell or taste
    13. red, purple or bluish lesions on the feet, toes or fingers without clear cause.

We want to thank everyone in advance for being patient in this unprecedented time.

We are really excited to get back to bingo!

Our reservation policy in the short term is as follows:

The reservation phone line is 902-490-4537. The times the reservation line will be open, and the dates you can book for during each time is below. There is no voice message. Therefore, if the line is busy, please keep trying until you reach someone during the designated time. Tables / seats are booked on a first come first serve basis. Once our table capacity becomes full for each day, we cannot take any more reservations. Nightly walkins will be allowed if capacity is not reached by previous reservation. Once capacity is reached, no more walkins will be allowed.

-Tuesday’s: 12:30 pm to 4:30pm. You can book for that night (if spots are still available) and you can book for Thursday night and Friday Night
-Thursday’s: 12:30 pm to 4:30pm. You can book for that night (if spots are still available) and you can book for Friday night and Saturday Night
-Friday’s: 12:30 pm to 4:30pm. You can book for that night (if spots are still available) and you can book for Saturday night and Sunday night.
-Saturday’s:12:30 pm to 4:30pm. You can book for that night (if spots are still available) and you can book for Sunday night and Tuesday night

When the reservation line closes each day, we will let you know how many spots are available for walk-ins.

Suggestion: The reservation line is generally very busy between 12:30pm and 1:30pm. If you are not looking to book a specific seat, you might want to wait until after that time period to call in as there is less a chance the line will be busy. That is especially true if you are booking for a future night other than the day you are calling.

4.Bingo players are to raise their hands with the winning card to alert staff.

5.Cards are good only for the nightly game of purchase.

6.Cards displaying serial numbers not issued at our hall will not be honoured.

7.Numbers appearing on the monitors or flashboards are not official until they are called. Flashboards are for customer convenience only, and the bingo is not responsible for any mechanical error or malfunction

8.Once the caller has dropped the bingo balls and the game is announced “closed” no other bingo can be honoured.

9.As of March 1st, 2016, all customers attending bingo must be at least 12 years old. Players under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult/guardian.

10.There will be no saving tables for other players.

11.All “Value Packs” must be played in full, they are not to be separated in any way.

12.Cell phones and pagers should be turned off or on vibrate.

13.Customers should not use profanity in the bingo hall

14.The first 47 numbers of the bonanza game will be called at the start of bingo. The remaining uncalled numbers will be returned to the bingo machine hopper until the second half of the game resumes. ( Right after the Dual Dab Game )

15.Regular format game books and the twoonie jar must be purchased before the completion of game #4.

16.Payment of prizes is only valid with proper serial numbers sold on the day of the game.

17.The twoonie jar amount is capped at $10,000. Once it reaches that amount, it will be awarded within 12 weeks of the date it reaches the capped amount.

18.The rainbow loonie jar (included in the $3.00 price of the rainbow game) will cap at $5000.00. It will be awarded on an advertised date within 12 weeks of capping at $5000.00

19.On the “special bingo games” ( the twoonie and loonie pots ), the last number called must be included in the winning pattern of the valid bingo to win those progressive prizes

20.If a bingo is cancelled or delayed for any reason before the start of bingo, a message will be put on our voice message ( 451-1900, option #2 ) prior to 4:30pm. The Executive Director of the Alcohol & Gaming division will be notified

24.Once a caller has started calling any portion of a bingo ball (the number or the letter), the bingo ball will be considered called and the caller must complete calling the rest of that bingo ball. Therefore, that number is officially out.

25.The bonanza game will pay a progressive pot if won in the allotted numbers. The progressive pot starts at $1000 if won in 50 numbers or less. It will increase $100 each night of bingo to a cap of $7000 and we will add a number every 7th bingo night ( after the 1st night ) until it is won. The bonanza will pay 50% of the take only if the progressive pot is not won. This holds true if the bonanza pot is won within the first 47 numbers called at the start of the bingo session.
