    A night at bingo.

    Thu Mar 20, 2014 4:32 am

    My daughter Claire and I went to bingo Sunday night at Moundsville, WVA and it was my first time there. Its a nice place with very friendly people, and the games pay $75 for regular games and $100 for the specials. Claire won a regular game of bingo but I didnt win any. Instead, I won about 4 times on tips. So I actually came out ahead on bingo play. We had a great evening out and I got to spend the time at one of my favorite pasttimes: bingo. One couldnt ask for anything more. lol_________________

    Hi Olivia

    Thanks for posting! Glad to hear you had a good night, and great of you to share an example of what 'responsible gambling' or 'gambling within your means' means to you. Bingo is actually one of the less 'dangerous' types of gambling in terms of the relatively slow speed of play and low cost. It's also really social , so as opposed to sitting on a pokie machine for hours and hours 'in the zone', at Bingo you're actually socialising with people. It's also not open at all hours like the pokies. Still got to be careful though and monitor your spend!

    I'm wondering what made you come on here and post?

    Regardless of this, welcome
