New Game starting this year! “DCIS Chase the Bingo Ball”
Just before the regular bingo session is set to begin, a customer is chosen to verify that all balls are in play (#’s 1 to 52). The balls are then dropped and that same customer turns the blower on. The ball that comes up the tube first becomes the Jackpot Ball for this night’s game. The Jackpot ball number is registered and displayed to all Bingo Players. The Jackpot ball is then reset in the ball tray along with all of the other balls that are in play.
Double roll tickets are sold to bingo players as they come in. Only the bingo players who are playing bingo at that night’s session are able to purchase tickets for the Chase the Bingo Ball game.
Before the last full card game of the bingo, a ticket is drawn by a bingo player to determine that night’s winner of the Chase the Bingo Ball game. The person who has the winning ticket automatically wins 20% of that night’s take. The bingo caller will get the winner of that night to verify that all of the bingo balls are in the ball tray. The caller then drops the balls into the ball chamber. The person with the winning ticket then has the opportunity to turn on the blower motor of the unit being used for the Chase the Bingo Ball game.
The first ball that comes up the tube is their ball number. If it matches the Jackpot ball that was determined earlier, they win the Jackpot. If not their ball is removed from that set of balls, recorded and placed in a separate box. It will then be verified again that the Jackpot Ball for that night was in play. The game for that night’s session is over.
The same procedure is used for the following weeks until the Jackpot is won. Every week there will be a new Jackpot Ball assigned and every week there will be a ball removed from play so the odds of winning the Jackpot increase as each week goes by.
Tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00
