Besides, Wonder Bingo offers a social bingo experience that cannot be found anywhere else on the World Wide Web.

Robinwood Bingo Hall Raided and Operators Arrested Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:21:38 +0000 Jenny After a raid conducted by the Tarrant police, the operators at Robinwood Bingo were arrested and jailed in the Jefferson County Jail. According to Sgt. Larry Rice, the operators of Robinwood Bingo were accused of illegally housing slot machines, which is a misdemeanor. They now stand accused of forty of forty counts of illegal possession of gambling devices.

As per the jail logs, Tracey Jordan and Stephen Mark Beane were jailed at 3:45 in the afternoon and were being held on a $12,000 bond each. Rice mentioned that although the bingo hall was outside the Tarrant city limits, it still fell under the jurisdiction of city police. Although the owners said that the bingo hall would shortly shut down, it was still functioning.  Rice also mentioned that they had been given enough fair warning.

There were a total of nineteen clients in the Bingo Hall at the time of the raid but none of them were arrested. While the machines were being loaded to the vehicle, clients asked the reporters if the business was shutdown. “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. It’s our money; I don’t see why they don’t let us play,” Linda said.

“These are illegal slot machines,” Rice said. The games are based on “cash valued prizes” and they are not won based on skill. The officials who went on undercover were offered cash when they played the machines.

Chief Deputy, Randy Christian, stated that further investigation is going on in other bingo halls at Jefferson County. Both Tarrant Police and the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office has been investigating the case for many weeks now, according to Rice.

Single Mother of Four Wins 200k Mega Bingo Jackpot Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:21:08 +0000 Jenny Bingo players play bingo both online and at land based bingo halls and clubs in their locality for both social and monetary purposes. Bingo players get together either with their bingo buddies and play bingo games together while having tea and friendly conversation at bingo halls. But while they look forward to making friends while playing bingo, almost all of them want to win the big bingo jackpot prize.

One of the latest winners of a bingo jackpot was Lilia Alvarez, a bingo player from Mega Bingo. Alvarez ended up winning more than 200,000 dollars by playing bingo and was both surprised and excited about her win. The bingo jackpot from Mega Bingo in Belize totaled over 219,000 dollars and as reported to be the largest jackpot ever issued in that region.

What’s more, the winning amount could not have gone to more deserving bingo player than Lilia Alvarez, who is a single mother raising 4 children. Her kids are between the ages 8 and 15 and are in school, as a result of which Alvarez had to contend with a lot of registration fees.

Alvarez had apparently bought her bingo ticket (which would win her plenty of money) more than a week prior to her win. She reported being struck with unbelief when she gave her ticket to the clerk at the counter at Mega bingo’s main office. Alvarez had no expectation or idea that she was going to be a winner. Alvarez had been buying these tickets since the outlet opened and called her children as soon as she had won. She plans on using the funds for her children’s education and to put the rest in the bank. She also has hopes to buy a house and pay her bills.

Jefferson County To Host Bingo Fundraisers Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:20:36 +0000 Jenny Many counties and districts have taken up the ruling that bingo games are only allowed as charitable events and can be used as fundraisers. Since bingo is not going to be associated with betting and wagers, bingo players can now expect to play bingo only at fundraisers.

Although this ruling disappointed several bingo players, the bingo players at Jefferson County will not have much to complain about – at least on Wednesdays. This is because there will be a regular bingo event held very week in Jefferson County.

Hilltop Tavern has joined hands with Real Estate Professionals in order to provide good deals with Affordable Housing (REPAH) at Jefferson County. They will be doing this through a bingo fundraiser event held on all Wednesday nights this month.

These bingo games for affordable housing are games for a cause and they will be held from 7 pm to 9 pm. The prizes have been donated by Hilltop Tavern. The special bingo games are being held for a $1 donation per round, which gives the player two cards. The deal is around $10 for 20 cards to be played.

Another regular feature at Hilltop Tavern, which is situated in Port Townsend is that of “Barstool Bingo”. Here, Judy and Pat Lundgren donate the prizes that include plants, blanket throws and other interesting items. The organizer mentioned that the whole event was filled with fun and entertainment and there is always a great turnout, with around 40 people playing and free pool and enough seats for people to get comfortable. These games are sort of a service to the community.

Guoco Buys Mecca Bingo From Rank Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:20:13 +0000 Jenny The entire bingo industry is eagerly waiting to see what is at stake for Rank Gaming and Mecca Bingo after it has been acquired by a Malaysian billionaire through his Honk Kong listed investment company. Sources say that the Guoco group own about 56% percent of Rank shares, which means that they essentially, owns the company in the boardroom.

Mecca Bingo, as we all know it, is one of the largest bingo operators in UK and the problem here is that the takeover which had a controlling interest in Rank was made viable by purchasing its shares from another Malaysian company, who also has gambling interests.

A lot of people are now wondering if Guoco will purchase the left over shares but Guoco has stated that the company will not be delisted. Mecca Bingo has been under tremendous pressure for a while now and the buyout has been a strategic move, especially since Rank is expecting a pivotal refund of VAT from the government in a while, which would be close to £250 million.

This buyout marks yet another British organization that has been taken over by a foreign organization on account of some strategic manipulation by the Malaysian company. And although everything has been done above board, some Rank shareholders are not happy with the new situation.

A lot of newspapers and magazine articles have been ranting about the issue and they have the impression that this has been a rather cheap buyout. Mecca Bingo has been a pioneer and it generates plenty of revenue.
