join our Discord server at the time of gameplay, as we will be recapping the game live, and you will be able to contact us if you are experiencing any issues. The prize will be announced at the beginning of each round.
unmute the caller on your device (Figure 3)
At any time when a new round begins, tap on your “FREE” square. The square will turn orange.
The current draw will appear at the top of your device (Figure 4). It will also be called out in the voiceover, if you have unmuted your caller. In-person players will see a flashboard projected in the room (Figure 5).
If your number has been called, tap on the square with that number
The previously called draw will appear below. On a mobile device, you may tap on this number to view the full list of previous draws for the current round. If you are on a laptop or desktop, the list will already be visible.
When you get a Bingo, the squares on your card will turn green and a message will appear (Figure 6)
If you are playing in-person, yell “Bingo” to get our attention
If you are playing virtually online and if there are no other validated Bingo winners, then you will be declared the winner and the round will end. In the case that there are multiple Bingo winners, a random drawing will occur and a single winner declared. If you are the declared winner, you will be contacted at a later date to arrange for a prize pickup.
