Default Bingo

Curious about bingo on a cruise ship. Do they play everyday? Is it a regular session or do you play/pay by the game? How much do they usually pay out for a bingo game? Just curious -- it will give me something to do while my hubby sits out on our veranda and reads a book -- boring! thanks!

Bingo is a big time cruise ship activity. They get really carried away with that stuff.

I have never played, so correct me if Im wrong, but I believe it is a regular session where you pay for a card up front and have several games. Throughout the cruise they lead up to a final snowball blackout game where the winner takes the accumulated prize - it often gets into 4 figures (I have seen $ 1,000 - 3,000).

On the Pacific Princess, Bingo was only held on the days we were at sea. We bought a book of 5 games for $20 (charged to our cruise card) just prior to the days' game. The prize money escalated for each game: 1st game you win $75, 2nd game $100, etc. The 5th game each day was a cover-all. If by a certain number of balls, no one wins, then the pot increases by $50 or $100 (I can't remember) until the last day when they play until someone wins. As an adult, the only time I've ever played bingo was in Las Vegas. This was lots of fun and you get to see mostly the same people at the games so you get to recognize others and make friends that way. I'd suggest you try it on the 1st day and if you like it, go back for more and fun!! :-)
