Ferriday Board Looking For A New Video Bingo Vendor

Bingo is a fairly new entrant to the social gaming scene in Ferriday and some of the board members of the Ferriday Board of Aldermen had even voted against it. Now that it has been instituted they want to see it work and bring in results and do not want to waste time with waiting for things to happen. As a result, the Ferriday Board is looking for a new video bingo vendor since they voted against Big Bucks Gaming on Tuesday night. They hope that a new vendor might get things going faster than before and provide more lucrative business.

Big Bucks Gaming was the former vendor and the tie was broken by the vote of Mayor Glen McGlothin by voting in favor of another vendor WhiteCo Gaming. The representatives of the previous bingo vendor walked out on the meeting once the votes were laid out. The board decided to take up the issue when it came to their notice that Aldermen had been complaining that no money had come through although six months had gone by since they had hired Big Bucks Gaming to provide their video bingo machines.

Rusty Durham, one of the representatives of Big Bucks Gaming explained the reason for the delay in profits coming in. He stated that he had been trying to get charities to get involved before they secured a location which resulted in it taking longer than usual. He also mentioned that he was having trouble leasing the property out since people refused to rent to bingo vendors.

WhiteCo Gaming had come prepared and argued that they had taken a week to make all the above arrangements and that they were ready to move ahead. The state law permits cities to have only a single bingo distributor and a single tenant as well, and Gail Pryor mentioned to White that she found his tactics rather dictatorial since the day WhiteCo Gaming was being considered as a candidate for being the bingo vendor.
