Once you purchase as many cards as you’d like (for $10 per card), you will receive a link to each card via email the week of the event. Ahead of the start of the event, make sure you either pull up your cards online (each card will open in a separate window), print out your cards or any combination of the two (you can play some cards on a device and some cards that you’ve printed out). Play in whichever way that makes you feel most comfortable.
Playing multiple cards per game increases your odds of winning.
Bingo is an interactive game. You can choose whether or not to have your camera turned on, but interacting with each other is part of the fun. You may be asked to mute your microphone so everyone can hear the bingo caller.
The bingo caller will begin calling out numbers (B1, O75, etc). You will see the numbers pop up on screen, as well as in the on-screen bingo card as they’re called out. You can “mark” your digital cards by using your touch screen or cursor. For printed cards you can “mark” your cards by using an item that can easily be erased/wiped (ex: unpopped popcorn kernels, M&Ms, paper clips, etc.), so you can reset/wipe/clean your board. This will enable you to reuse your cards each round.
We’ll keep playing each game until we have a winner for that round. Once we confirm a winner, we will begin a new game, so you can then clear your board and start again. We will play as many games as possible for one hour.
Yes. The first round will be traditional bingo (the first person to win either diagonally, vertically or horizontally). Subsequent games will use different combinations (ex: the first person to fill a line on their board vertically or the first person to fill a line on their board diagonally, etc.). We will verbally inform players about which pattern we’re utilizing ahead of and during the game, as well as placing it in the chat box.
Yes. Each virtual bingo card can be reset by the player, and can be reused as many times as you like.
If you’re pretty sure you’ve won a round of bingo, unmute your microphone and yell “BINGO!”. The bingo caller will stop the game and ask you for your card number, so he/she can type it in and verify that your card has won the round.
Yes. On most mobile phones and tablets it's possible to have Zoom, WhatsApp, etc running in the background while the browser is open. So you can listen to the bingo calls and mark your card on the same device. We cannot guarantee this will work on all devices.
You can also view the game on one device, like your tablet, and play your cards on your phone.
Yes. You can play as many cards as you’d like during each game. The cards work on computers, tablets and mobiles and can be reused for each round.
Yes. Players can choose which bingo cards to print and what size to print them.
Yes. All winners will receive a prize that will be sent/mailed directly to them. Each winning card will receive one prize per round you’ve won.
