no people u cant cheat at bingo it is impossible as bill says the balls are mixed up and nobody knows what number is next and even if they did they wouldnt know which computer would win and as for pull tabs theyd have to be open and closed back im pretty sure they have better things to do so u can not cheat at bingo. its all luck sometimes i win sometimes i dont its all in luck and you can spend 10 or 100 on tabs and either could win so money dont get money. i have went there with 12 dollars and left with 1500 and then i went with 100 and left with 0 so its all luck peopl

Have you ever noticed, when something wrong happens at the yellow building, something such as a malfunction with the computers, Bill is left in charge to correct the problem, but when he does try to correct the problem, he makes things so much worse. I remember a number of times when something goes wrong and most of the people who play bingo, thinks that a blind man or woman would have done so much better.

I think its ridiculous that people blow government money at BINGO. If you are on social security or receiving any government aid, it should be illegal for you to blow it on BINGO. People spend their last dollar there out of despiration. Pitiful how industry preys on the poor.

There is a man that has been coming to Bingo lately that wears a hat and carries a cane in his hand,maybe in his middle 40's. Is this the man that people use to call Wild Bill ? Wild Bill use to walk and sometimes ride a bicycle all over town and use to look like he hadn't took a bath in months. If it is he looks so much better and not a bad looking guy.

I am a retired person that has worked and and paid in to social security, and now i am receiving benefits from this fine program that many people depend upon and enjoy....I resent you telling me "HOW" to spend or enjoy the money that i worked for through many years of hard work.....If there should be anything illegal it should be busy bodies like you butting your nose in how others spend their money... I assure you... if you keep your nose out of other people's business. you too may enjoy the same benefits that you have earned through hard work and are entitled too.. I will spend, donate, throw away, or give my money {key word here is {my} money} without any input from someone like you...

HOW SOMEONE CAN CHEAT AT THE BINGO HALL YOU ASK?
PAY CLOSE ATTENTION.
**********
THE PLAYER WAITS TIL ENOUGH BALLS HAVE BEEN DRAWN.
SHE THEN YELLS BINGO.
A RUNNER GOES TO THE TABLE, CALLS OFF A NUMBER THAT SUPPOSE TO AUTHENTICATE THE WINNING COMPUTER.
ALL A CALLER HAS TO DO, WHETHER ITS A WINNING COMPUTER OR NOT, ALL HE HAS TO DO IS SAY, "THATS A BINGO".
ITS NOT A WINNING COMPUTER, BUT THE CALLER SAYS IT IS.
THE RUNNER DOES NOT KNOW IF IT IS OR NOT. THE RUNNER HAS TO GO ALONG WITH WHAT THE CALLER SAYS.
THE PLAYER GETS PAID FOR WINNING.
AND THE CALLER MAY GET PAID LATER.
NOW DONT SAY THIS COULD NEVER HAPPEN.

I don't know where you got your misinformation... BUT this is the biggest bunch of bull that you have put out there... IT"s amazing...that you don't see the holes that is in your theory.. What about the monitor showing the winning bingo and also the card number on (THE BIG TV SCREEN) in front of everyone's view... You ever notice that little flaw in your stupid remark...And you have the right to challenge ANY called bingo's if you think there is wrongdoing or a mistake is made.You must have used up most of your brain cells coming up with this ridiculous statement...Everyone knows the winners use crystal balls.. you should get yourself one and see if that is a better explanation than the one you have shared with us...GOOD LUCK....

SHOO FLY... A man walked into a bingo hall and chooses his bingo cards. Seeing a fly land on a particular number on one bingo card, and thinking this was a lucky sign, he bought that card. Later on that night, he lost. "Must have been a house fly", he said.
Full Card
2 old men are playing Bingo in the church, John and Tom. John keeps looking over Tom's shoulder saying: "you've got that number, mark it off, you've got that number mark it off." After doing this for quite some time Tom gets annoyed and says: "why don't you do your own card?" Whereupon John answers: "I can't it's full!"
Always a Winner
Betty and Hilda, two friends, went together to play the slot machines at their local Bingo Hall. Each agreed that when her allotted money was gone, she would go to the front of the Bingo Hall and sit on the bench to wait for her friend. Betty quickly lost all of her money and went to sit on the bench. She waited and waited and waited and waited. After what seemed an eternity, she saw Hilda coming toward her carrying a huge sack of coins. "Hey, Betty," said Hilda, "how'd you do?" "Well, Hilda", said Betty, "you see me here on this bench- what do you think? It looks like you hit it big, though." "Oh yeah," said Betty, "did I find a good machine! It's way in the back. I'll show it to you - you can't lose! EVERY TIME YOU PUT IN A DOLLAR FOUR QUARTERS COME OUT!!!" .... COME ON DOWN.. HAVE FUN... ENJOY A AFTERNOON OF LAUGHTER..IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SO...FUN IN WHAT BINGO WAS INTENDED FOR...If you have a gambling addiction I encourage you find another source of entertainment!!...BUT it is solely your responsibility and yours only....keep laughing and good luck in life to ALL.....

I am sorry to bust your bubble but any thing that is ran from a computer can be rigged.All you have to have is someone that is smart on a computer.I have saw it done more than one time.I AM NOT SAYING THAT THEY DO IT but I am saying it can be done and it has been done Not there but it has been done more than once.As for certain nights yes I think they cheat but on Melissa's night her workers have always been friendly and honest with me.Now the other nights is a BIG JOKE.I will not go back down there on those night because of what I heard Peggy and Teresa Berry say about the girl that ask for her job back and the smart remark that those 2 said about her...NEVER NEVER be back on their nights...

Why if you saw cheating happening did you not challenge the bingo and stop the act right then and there...That is anyone's obligation to do so.....You had better believe if I see anyone cheating me out of my money right before my eyes i will let the whole place know quick.....read the rules if you suspect wrong doing challenge that bingo and make them prove the bingo is good..not to do so keeps encouraging them to steal from all patrons..So don't get on here and say I've seen them cheat and i did nothing about it, shows me how much of a wussy you are...read your statement again and tell me WHY! WHY! did you let them still your money if you know how they did it.....

What you don't understand, is the BINGO is GOOD on the computer. But, yet they didn't have to play fair to win. The computers can be fixed to BINGO after so many numbers have been called. I have also seen certain computers load with with 144 cards, instead of 72. So, doesn't that double your chances? I know that some people down there are "house players" because the odds show that noone can win that much. Go ahead, Bill, keep defending them if it makes you feel better. At least, I can lay my head down at nite because I make an honest living. I have said it once and I will say it again, it is the people that "volunteer" at these Bingo Halls and make upwards of $1000/week, tax-free, that makes me sick. While I work everyday and "Uncle Sam" gets 25% of what I make. It's the ones that are making all this money "under the table", while drawing SSI, that makes me sick. I have relatives that a truly disabled,that try to live on 600-something a month. If you are on disability, then how in the HELL do you walk around 4-6 selling tabs every night? If you can do that, you can wait tables and let the SSI go. Just a thought.

You have no idea who or what type of person I am......You call me Bill.. Which is another false statement you have made..If you want anyone to believe you, You (must) repeat... must be honest in your statement. I have play bingo for many, many years at many different places and there is always people saying they were cheated ....DON'T be passive when you think you are cheated....Don't stand there like a lamb led to slaughter.. I worked and paid my taxes throughout my life and i resent anyone telling me how to spend my money..as well, I will not tell you how to spend yours.. YOU are evidently a very jealous person that has nothing to do but complain about someone. If it was me who was cheated i would speak up and let the whole hall know how and when they were cheated... STEALING is a crime and a crime should be reported with evidence to the bingo commission. Not to do so makes you just as bad as the ones that are stealing if you have the evidence...Or is it just a theory that you have with know way of backing it up, With only (I didn't win so they must have cheated attitude)Enough said there Hector or whoever you may be ...I don't really care.. Still I wish you the very best in life and have a good luck day......
