I love BINGO!




I am a BINGO nut. I love to play BINGO at the Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee.  Dawn and I visit the casino at least once a month to play BINGO.  We like to play the Breakfast or the Matinee - the prices are reasonable and the jackpot winnings are good.  The Breakfast or the Matinee cost us each $17 to play - takes about 3 hours to play all of the games. Perfect Mom and Daughter fun- we both really enjoy BINGO!!

Since I started playing BINGO regularly I am amazed at the advice I am receiving ....

  • I love it when people that smoke two packs of cigarettes a day remind me that BINGO is gambling and  gambling is a waste of money. 
  • Or the person that goes out to eat at least 2 times a week tells me that BINGO is a such a waste - I should save my money.
  • How about the person that shops till they drop - warning me to not gamble away my life savings.
  • Gotta love the crafter that buys every craft item she can get her hands on that - then tells me there is no reason I need to play Bingo once a week.
  • Oh yeah I need to be reminded by a person with so much stuff they can not get a vehicle in their garage that I will never win at BINGO and that I am throwing my money down the drain.
  • How about the person that watches TV 12 hours a day that tells me I waste my time playing BINGO.
  • Finally the person that tells me I must be rich since I can play BINGO once a week!  WOW I never knew that spending $17 a week on BINGO made me a RICH person! If that is so - I would of been playing BINGO instead of working my you know what off for 30 years!
Yes, I have heard that BINGO leads to serious gambling problems. I will lose my house playing slots and my life savings will be gone before I know it playing the ponies. I honestly think if I spend less than $20 a visit - I will be fine! 

In all seriousness - I understand that many people do have a serious gambling problem and have destroyed their life as a result of gambling. I just think it is so funny to listen to people tell me that Bingo is dangerous when they themselves may have a problem with their favorite pastime!


By chance are you a BINGO player?

  19. I don't play bingo but I do enjoy playing it. I've had the same thing about running....non-runners tell me that running will kill my knees and that it's not good for me. I've got vital statistics that prove otherwise but thanks for the advice? As long as you're not creating a financial hardship for your family by engaging in your hobbies, it's a nice relaxation.

  21. I have not played Bingo. You are a good person for biting your tongue when others are quickly passing judgement without giving any thought to their own things that are worth judging.

  28. I have never played Bingo before, but my dad used to go every Saturday night with his sister. I don't think the $20 he spent on entertainment each week was wasteful, especially if it made him happy. It seems people always judge others, no matter what. Just flip em the bird on your way to the bingo hall.

  37. Bingo is fun but too simple as for me. It's better to play something more serious. Maybe roulette. I just found an interesting article about this https://casinority.com/15-winning-roulette-strategies/ Hope, it will be useful for someone
