what i want to know is the people who run bingo allowed to play at the same time or is it like mcdonalds are they not suppose to play and collect monies on the games. i go to bingo in ash flat ark and the ones who run the bingo halls collect most of the money and win most of the games and sometimes all they play is the single games and if you are just someone playing there you have to buy a pack to play these games and the ones who work there do not do this they just play the big money games in between games and that does not seem fair since the rules on the wall tell you that you have to have a pack to play these games and most of the time they collect all the prize money that has been put into the special games and did not buy a pack and i just do not think that is fair to the people and i would love to know if there is a rule that says the workers can or cannot play at all and if they should be made to buy a pack like all the players they are serving.

You people are such idiots!! Idiots idiots idiots! Just uninformed idiots!! Didn't even bother to read why, or ya idiots didn't comprehend it one! Smh at idiots! The mass of idiots on here are thick!!
"derrrrrr it's the religious freaks! Oh no religion done shut down bingo derrrrrr" lol what's idiots you all are! Let's take a gander to why it was banned! If ya can even comprehend it all, which now I'm having doubts!

Alderman Johnny Hodges says the games tend to draw more players from nearby Searcy than Bald Knob. Hodges says many seniors in Bald Knob no longer use the senior citizens' center because of the games.

The council says bingo can still be played at the center — as long as no cash prizes are awarded. The ban takes effect at the end of the month.

That's a copy and paste from the link above, so let's get out our handy dandy thinking hats on! Now I know most of y'all's will come to a point cause it's a dunce hat, but I'll try to keep the words small!

So hmmm many seniors from bald knob no longer use the center that's made for THEM because of the game which attracts people that's not senior citizens of bald knob! Woot! Found the problem pretty dag gum easy!! Sooo because the Searcy gamblin addicts have seem to crowd it huh? So this tells me the amount of none residents that clutter it is the cause. Its not made for searcy's citizens to gamble at! its made for bald knob senior citizens. They still have the game just no cash prizes! Derrrrrrr slow class dismissed! Pay the short bus's driver with shiny tokens on ur way out!

The crime element is going to want its share of the winnings.
Say for instance some feisty old bag doesn't want to pay off the Mob.
We can't afford to have contract hits on our seniors. Sorry! I side with the city on this one.
