In the beginning of the week, the cheapest cards are $10 for one or $20 for three.

As the week goes one and the jackpot grows, they usually go up in cost. They usually

have them around 10:30 and sometimes again in the afternoon around 4:45.

Royal Caribbean - Radiance of the Seas

Bingo was offered about twice a day. The cost was $20 for 3 cards or $35 for 6 cards all for five games. Each of the five games would be a different Bingo pattern with the fifth game always being a blackout. They would designate a number of calls to try to get the 5th game blackout in. If no one won in that number of calls (say 64, and the number declined as the week progressed), then the jackpot would grow and a lesser prize would be won by the first blackout. Nobody had won a jackpot up until the last game of the cruise. At this point the jackpot was $9,050. They have to give the money away at the last bingo so they call until the first blackout, and that winner gets the prize. Other prizes ranged from $100 to $600. You could buy additional fifth game cards for $10 for 3 cards or $16 for 6. I would be inclined to save my money until the last game of the cruise next time around. It's gambling that the jackpot will not be won, but then you'd have just as much chance as anybody playing the last game only.
