2.Ink daubers must be used to cover bingo numbers

3.Players are responsible to call “Bingo” clearly and loudly so the caller can hear them.

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

21.Staff that are acting as caller or a checker during a specific bingo game shall not play in that bingo game

22.The manner in which all our games are played and prizes are awarded are specified on our bingo program format.

23.The one liner loonie jar (included in the $2.00 price of the One Liner game) will cap at $5000.00. It will be awarded on an advertised date within 12 weeks of capping at $5000.00.

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.
