First Class Bingo and Raffle in Bollingbrook Illinois off of I55 and route 53 cheats. The owner has employees that cheat. I was cheated out of a hundred dollars last night. And then tonight I was threatened after telling this guy to stay out of my business. I mean the place is not first class at all. It is more like low class bingo. I am not going there anymore after tonight. The place lets the employees of the place run it like it's a scam. The charities let the bingo places employees abuse patrons. The charities do nothing to protect customers. Well, they lost my business. I am warning everyone about this place. They also cheat. They take out 3 balls at a times and place them on the side. I guess it's so they wait until one of their friends needs a ball. I have seen people besides myself get threatened. I should have called the police, but I don't know if the employees are insane enough to have me killed or mamed. Don't trust this place. Bollingbrook is going downhill. It is a ghetto now. The bingo hall is run like it's a mafia outfit.

To continue what I was saying. The handyman steals cards out of the back room all the time. He goes into the kitchen and acts like he is doing stuff in there and then walks into the room with all the pulltabs, bullseye cards, and upickem raffle cards. He then sticks them in his pocket and walks out of there. He always closes the door behind himself when he is in there. Then you see him playing 40 bullseye cards and like 5 sheets of upickem. He does it all the time. And he wins at it. The place is a scam. The charities don't do anything about this stuff. I bet they are in on it too. I am calling the state on them this week to see if they can investigate. The employees also play. They don't pay for their cards. They tell people it is taking out in trade for their work. The hall is not suppose to get involved in the charities money, but it does. In the state of Illinois people cannot personally profit from running a bingo hall. I think the owner personally profits. There are nights he runs it without a charity at all. He tells people that all the proceeds are going to the charity. That is a lie. I asked one of the charities and they knew nothing about it they said. The place cheats people out of their money. One time, there was a lady who should have won 500.00. She is deaf and didn't hear them call the number. 15 minutes later the kitchen lady who thinks she runs the place decides to call another number. Sure cuz her friend had chances at the 500.00. Then the deaf woman found out it was her number that was called. The kitchen lady says she told people the number and gave them time to look and it is already over. That is not right. Everyone in the hall knows the woman is deaf. Well she never got her 500.00. There is no disability rights in this place. It is ghetto bingo at it's best. It should be called low class bingo.

The guy that threatened me did apologize. It shows character for someone to say they were wrong and apologize. I did appreciate him doing that. I did misjudge him. It's a crazy place to play sometimes, but I do appreciate him apologizing and making me feel comfortable to go there again. I do love the people there. The players and the workers are down to earth. That is my favorite thing about the place.

Do not waste your money! This place is rigged. A friend and I wasted 90+ dollars to these crooks! I disregarded the negative reviews and went with a friend anyway boy were we wrong. We went on a Saturday and the cheapest option available was 40$ now Iíve been playing bingo for over 50 years and I have never paid that much! Anyway the place is a dump, the workers were very unhelpful and only one worker knew what was going on. They called the numbers so fast there was no way to keep up. Also we were given computers, which I think were rigged because it did not match up to the games on my sheet. THE ABSOLUTE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED WAS THAT THERE WAS THIS LADY WHO WON 7 OUT OF 13 GAMES including the huge jackpot!! There is no possible way this was not rigged. She wasnít even excited when she won over 50% of the time. She had to have known the people who ran it. This place was only 1/3 full probably because most people never come back! I canít believe I was suckered by these cheats. Go somewhere else for bingo!

The big pot went out the other night (U Pick Em). The caller did not release the balls from the bullseye game and just continued to call the u pick em. Someone won which did not give anyone elese a chance to win the game because the balls were not available. The owner said it was legitate. He is crazy. He should not be running a bingo hall. Don't go there.

This hall is so underhanded. They actually screwed up and called the wrong serial numbers box on the fast five pull tab. Even though they made the mistake they let the woman have the five hundred dollars. I am apalled at how they handled things. I had two cars and could have won but they called the winning number off the wrong box. The serial number did not match up with the box. I spent a hundred and fourty dollars to get screwed over. What if my number was suppose to win on the box that should have been called. The owner tells me it is still random and you had a shot. Well, the hell I did. What if my number was the winner on the "right" box. What a underhanded operation. They made the mistake and I ended up paying for it. I have seen too many underhanded things at this hall to not say something. I could write a book on the underhanded things I have seen in the nine years I attended this hall. I know so many people that don't go there anymore cuz of how they run things. I have finally learned my lesson and will no longer patron their business anymore. It is sad that customers have to be abused in order for charities to make money. I understand the charities are out to make money for their cause. I just think it's wrong that they will go to any lenghts to do it including switching boxes and serial numbers on pull tabs.

lol I guess you can't handle the truth. I am going to find out who you are and sue you for defamation by the way. We will see who is the big baby and goes around accusing people of things. I would love to see your proof of me receiving stolen bullseyes. I think we all know at the bingo hall who steals cards, bullseyes and upickems on a weekly basis. I don't have to name names. I have more class than that. That is a dead issue I got over long ago cuz the owner of the hall and the charities obviously allow it. And no, I am not involved in anyway.

Let's see who the big baby is? Doesn't like people stating their opinion or standing up for an injustice so they run back to their computer and start defaming someone. Sounds like you're the biggest baby of them all. lol

I guess the charities love the new lady that comes that spends 900.00 in a night. I mean my God how clueless can you be to spend that much. I don't think it's right that Harlands place takes advantage of the mentally disabled like that. Oh well, what happens in Bollingbrook stays in Bollingbrook I guess.

First Class Bingo is great. It sounds like we have some sore losers here that cant accept that they can't win, no matter how much money they spend. I have never seen anything (have been going for over 3 months now at least 3 times a week) that would indicate that they are scammers. The owner may be a little grumpy but, how would you feel if 25 old ladies bitched about the burnt popcorn - LOL !!!!
Really this place is pretty cool and I have never seen one of these things these people are complaining about above happen there. If you go with a good attitude and just have fun there is nothing to complain about !

First Class Bingo is First class and 5 stars *****

This place is such fun. I am a regular Sunday afternoon player -- I don't win all the time, but I always, always have a great time. The crew who runs this session, beginning at 1:30 p.m.(but get there early!) works hard to make sure that the players are happy and taken care of. I highly recommend giving this a shot -- it's a well-spent Sunday afternoon. Entertainment value is always worth the price of admission. Five stars!

I think my bingo is cheating via the pull tabs we don't c what number is called nor do we c if the person who said I got let's say on a pull tab the # is 2013 we don't c if it's actually 2013 that was opened and the person whom is related to the pelt whom run it wins if we play 5 #13 needed pull tabs she wins 4 back to back. We don't know if she really had the # 2013 . I feel it's cheating she will send every week never on the bingo games that is validation by the computer but the pull tabs . Every week she wins it is suspicious to me so whom do I call to investigate this..
