I don’t care what anyone says–Bingo is awesome.
And not this sissy Bingo where you stare at a computer screen and watch the numbers light up. The key to a really amazing Bingo experience is to daub.
I went to Lone Butte Casino in south Chandler Friday night to try to win some moolah, since they have two Bingo sessions per day, including one at 6:30 p.m. Friday night Bingo is packed, and I heard some people get there as early as 4 p.m. to get in line. I arrived around 6:15 p.m. and still managed to get a seat, but I’d recommend getting there at 6 p.m. at the latest, since the lines get huge.
At Lone Butte, Bingo lasts until 10 p.m., and you play about 15 games. Packages start at $27, and the bigger packages you buy, the bigger the pay-out. Yes, you can stare at a computer, but it is so much more fun to daub (put ink on tangible Bingo cards.)
And don’t worry if you’ve never played before–there are plenty of attendants walking around to help, and the crowd has been super-friendly the past couple times I went.
That’s another awesome part of Bingo–making friends with the people around you. You might be the youngest person there, but it’s still super-fun!
