What is a Club Bingo game?
Club bingo is the game known as bingo, housie and housie-housie.
It includes games like alphy, hoi and wild cards. Club Bingo can only be conducted at a club registered under the Registered Clubs Act 1976 for the purpose of attracting patronage to the club’s premises.
Never Played Before: No problem, Bingo is very easy to learn and the Narromine USMC welcomes all new players to the club.
For anyone interested but new to the game. Bingo is a game of chance played with different randomly drawn numbers which players match against numbers that have been pre-printed on 5×5 cards. For a full break down of the game please feel free to have a look at the Full Game Guide.
The winner is usually required to call out the word “Bingo!”, which alerts the other players and caller of a possible win. In this version of Bingo, players compete against one another for the prize. Since its invention in 1929, modern bingo has evolved into multiple variations, with each jurisdiction’s gambling laws regulating how the game is played.
All wins are checked to make sure the person has not made a mistake before the win is officially confirmed at which time the prize is secured and a new game is begun.
Only members of the host club and their guests can play Club Bingo. No person conducting or assisting in the conduct of the game can participate as a player.
Prizes can consist of or include anything except a prohibited prize. Prizes can be goods, wares, merchandise, services, vouchers for goods or services that are not redeemable for money, and tickets for admission to entertainment. Winners of shopping vouchers can redeem their vouchers or store credit up to the value specified for products and services.
A session is an unbroken period of time during which a series of club bingo games are conducted.
The maximum value of prizes in any one game must not exceed $70. Any single prize must not exceed $40. If there is more than one winner in a club bingo game, the prize must be shared equally between the winners. At the end of a session, a bonus prize valued at $70 can be awarded as part of a ticket clean-up scheme. In this scheme, patrons of the session write their names on the back of their used tickets. The tickets are placed in a receptacle, a draw is held, and the winner awarded the bonus prize. Prize values must be at normal retail value. Prizes cannot jackpot from game to game, or from session to session.
