Odd & Even

The day of the month determines whether the games will be “Odd” or “Even”.  Mark off all odd or even numbers, as determined by the day of month.


Special Reverse Odd & Even Progressive Game

Each game card is $0.50. This is a progressive game and starts at 6 called numbers (in addition to all the odd or even numbers that are covered). The number of balls increases by one number every third Bingo. The jackpot increase each week depending on the number of cards sold. Odd or even numbers are dependent on the calendar day being an odd or even number. Once the jackpot is won the progressive will start at $25 with 6 balls again.  The actual amount of payout for both the jackpot and consolation prize (if jackpot does not go out) for each game is based on number of cards sold.


Dollar Ball

During the regular games each time the dollar ball is called and participants call out Dollar Ball another $1.00 will be added to the Dollar Ball amount. The Dollar Ball will continue to accumulate until a Bingo is won on a regular game with the Dollar Ball number. It will then restart on the next week’s Bingo at $5.00.
