On out cruise last week it was $10 for a single card and $20 for a triple payouts were between $250-$1199 one game you had a chance to win 5000 if you got the bingo on a certain number within a certain number. They also had a raffle with the old bingo card you would sign the card and put your stateroom number on it and later they drew for jewelry. They also had another raffle for a cruise for 2.
I play bingo on the cruise all the time its offered and never win anything, but its exciting to do so anyways just thinking you might have a chance to win something. On the Sensation last year they also had at the bingo games little scratch off lottery tickets just like the state games. My sister won 4 dollars out of about 20 tickets she purchased at a buck each.
We are cruising in May from a free cruise we won from playing bingo less than 1 year ago. We cannot wait, taxes are not included , but a small price to pay considering the cabin is an upgrade. We were playing bingo since we needed som down time.
Wow Congratulations you are the first person I heard who won a cruise. Thats exciting! How many cards did you play. I always play a few and never win and sometimes I feel like it was a big waste of money that maybe I could have done something else on the ship with. It was sort of fun though. So at least I know true people do win the cruises. I was wondering if was a setup with someone in the audience. Nice to know its real.
My husband I played 2 cards each just for fun. People we did not know congratulated us for the rest of the cruise (even the couple who won the free ruise the previous time). We will play again & to my knowledge ther is no set-up.
It is definitely not a set up who wins the cruise. I know because my daughter and I won a free cruise on the first cruise we went on. We were playing a set of three cards. My daughter could barely sign her name, she was shaking so much.
I play bingo at home and believe me, it is nowhere near the same. I had no clue what to expect. I thought maybe we'd be in a room full of tables and play 10 or 15 games etc.
Not the case....
On our cruise the "free cruise" prize and the bigger jackpot wasn't until the end of the cruise.
I know alot of people loved it, and maybe I will enjoy myself more this time since I know what to expect, but I was totally disappointed in it last time, $20 for 3 games....
However I will most likely try again, since I love bingo and love to gamble...
I'd probable just be donating to the casino anyway...
I have a friend who won a cruise on a 4 day to mexico. Then used it for a 7 day caribean out of New Orleans for her honeymoon. They were even upgraded to a suite. :-)
