BINGO and GAMES

 

Bingo is suspended until the current virus crisis is over or at least under control. We don’t want to add any risk to our players because of the virus that seems to be spreading. We are not sure how long we may have to keep this suspended so watch us week by week while the virus alert is present.

Saturday Night Family BINGO

The Post is licensed by the State of Colorado for our gaming activities. Proceeds from the games are used by the Post and Post Auxiliary to support Veterans, Community, and Youth needs. All games workers are volunteers and members of either the Post or the Post Auxiliary. (To volunteer, please contact Alicia at 719-481-8659) A reference copy of the Colorado BINGO and Raffle Laws is available from the Games Manager. A copy of the Laws and rules may also be obtained from the Secretary of State’s office at 1700 Broadway, Denver, CO 80290. 303-894-2200 http://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/bingo_raffles/bingoHome.html

Regular BINGO – Games include classic regular BINGO, various BINGO patterns, and Black Out. Prizes are based on 70% of the evening sales with the prize for each game posted prior to the game start. A packet of game sheets for the 7 games is sold for $10 at the door. Additional sheets for the Black Out game are sold for $2. Children age 6 and up may play but purchases must be made by an adult (18 years of age or older).

Progressive BINGO –  Saturday The value is changed each week to reflect the coming Saturday potential prize

Progressive BINGO is the last BINGO game played each Saturday evening. The game uses a double action sheet (see graphic) with either number in a square counting for that square. Each series of Progressive games starts with at least $200 as the Jackpot Prize. If the black out is not won in 37 balls or less, 50% of the evening sales are added to the potential Jackpot Prize for the next week. If the prize is not won when the prize reaches $1199, we play the following week to give away the prize no matter how many balls are needed. Each week was also give away a $50 consolation prize. Game sheets for the Progressive game are sold for $1 each, but players must have played the preceding regular BINGO games.
