Neu-Tech Energy Solutions is one of those new advertisers ready to serve you. Neu-Tech Specializes in LED and Induction Lighting. They can retrofit your existing lighting system to a new more efficient type or provide total new systems for installation. We understand that the Knights of Columbus Bingo Hall in South Milwaukee needed to replace their outdated fluorescent lighting. Dave from NeuTech supplied replacement LED tubes to replace fluorescent. Neu-Tech even provided easy to follow instructions to accomplish the conversion process. They couldn’t be happier. The Bingo Hall looks beautiful and bright but best of all, the long lasting LED lamps don’t burn out like the old ones did. The volunteers won’t have to climb tall ladders to change burned out lights. That’s much safer for everyone. If you need help with a lighting problem, want to retrofit or install new lighting, Call Dave Klumb at (262) 707-7288 or dave@ retrofitled.net. See their website www.retrofitled. net.

Needless to say, it’s quite an undertaking—and explains why I am always stunned when I hear that a state has increased it prize payouts, and incredibly impressed by the people behind the scenes who made it happen (which sometimes include your local Bingo Bugle publisher!). —Aunt Bingo

How to Boost Prize Payouts Dear Aunt Bingo: What can players do to get higher payouts available at community Bingo halls? We don’t all want to make special trips to casinos for big prize money. Lots of us like to play Bingo locally in town but have higher jackpots to play for. Can Bingo hall operators make a change? Is it up to the state or the federal government? Who decides this and what are the things that will make them boost payouts? Louise A., Texas Dear Louise, Every player would like to see more prize money at Bingo. But there are many factors that must be considered for an increase to occur. For example: Do the halls where you play currently offer the maximum allowable prize amount legally allowed in your state, and offer as many games/sessions per week as regulations permit? Often halls do not give maximum payouts because they do not have enough players buying into the games to fund prizes. If the players aren’t there, the prize money won’t be either. If the halls where you play already offer maximum payouts, then an increase in prize money would require a change in Bingo regulations—which would have to be done by state government. To get state officials behind you will require a process of petitioning, getting Bingo sponsors to support your cause, government hearings, impact studies, and more.

MARCH 2020

Dear Aunt Bingo: My feelings about kids at Bingo halls are mixed. Among my sweetest memories growing up was every year at the town festival playing Bingo with all the women in my family: four generations worth. Back then, we were playing for a pound of sugar or a bag of flour. But the prizes didn’t matter. I just enjoyed playing the game and the time together. Now, the pots being in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars these days, I think, changes the picture as it pertains to whether the game is still appropriate for kids. I really don’t want to spoil for anyone else what I enjoyed as a kid. But my gut tells me that encouraging little ones to play for large sums of money isn’t good. CK, Mission Viejo, California Dear CK: Your Bingo prizes were a pound of sugar or a bag of flour? Sounds very Little House on the Prairie to me! I continue to go round and round on this issue of kids and Bingo. Yes, gambling, of which Bingo is a part, can be addicting. So can eating, exercising, and computer gaming. To me, the idea that kids risk gambling addiction if they play Bingo is simply too broad of an assumption. Is it possible? Of course. Is it probable? I think not. In my humble opinion, if kept an occasional fun pastime for young and old alike, then Bingo can and should be enjoyed by everyone. — Aunt Bingo Share your views!

2020 Honor Flights Starting Up Soon Last year the Honor Flights Network took 21,000 World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War era veterans from around the country aboard flights to Washington, D.C. Over the years, non-profit HFN has taken over 200,000 veterans on these flights to see the memorials dedicated to them in the nation’s capital. Because of donations, the veterans themselves paid nothing for their trips. The 2020 season will be starting soon. Are you able to go as a volunteer escort to help three veterans for one day? Can you host a fundraiser or donate money? With over 20,000 veterans on a wait list for a trip, volunteers and donations are the most crucial at this point. Your first step is to look at the Honor Flight Network website at www.honorflight.org. Click on Hubs/Flights and find

PICKS OF MONTH

THE

The Addams Family (PG) — America’s kookiest family goes head to head with a makeover design TV host in this cute, if relatively mild, animated tale. After being chased out of town after town, the Addamses settle in an abandoned, haunted mental institution on a hill in New Jersey to raise a family, safely away from the judgmental eyes of others. But in the valley below, egomaniacal Margaux Needler (Alison Janney) has built a whole idyllic town to film and sell, marred only by a view of the Addams house. The pressure is on to oust Gomez and Morticia, as children Wednesday and Pugsley fight their own adolescent battles. Zombieland: Double Tap (R) — In 2009, four forces of nature — Tallahassee, Columbus, Little Rock and Wichita (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin and Emma Stone, respectively) — banded together and formed a makeshift family, a little slice of heaven in a world overrun with zombies. But it’s been a long 10 years and they could use a few fresh faces. Back out on the road and once again facing threats from

the black dot closest to you. All but five states have hubs with a total of 140 locations. Click on a dot and you’ll find contact information. Click on the website link for your hub. You’ll learn about the local group: fundraisers, links to refer a veteran and more. If you’re a veteran who wants to go alone or with your family, you can go solo and meet up with the larger group in Washington, D.C., if you can secure your own funding and transportation. Another program is the Southwest Lone Eagle, for veterans who have been on the waiting list for more than one year and do not live within 120 miles of a hub. For veterans with a terminal illness, there is the TLC programs, meaning Their Last Chance. For more information, or if there isn’t a hub in your state, call Honor Flight at 937-521-2400. Note to veterans: use of a wheelchair or oxygen are not obstacles to going on one of these trips. zombies, other tough survivors and weird doppelgangers, the crew is just as funny and dangerous as ever. Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (R) — The convenience-store-lurking duo who made their iconic debut in Clerks return to the screen with another misadventure featuring inside jokes, self-deprecating humor and inside jokes. Did I mention the inside jokes? Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) were immortalized in comic book form as Bluntman and Chronic, which Hollywood then monetized without shame. Now, famed director “Kevin Smith” is rehashing the buddies for a movie reboot, and the pair have three days to stop it, with a cavalcade of celebrity cameos along the way. If you love Kevin Smith movies, it’s more of what you already love. But for everyone else, it’s packed with 25 years’ worth of references that aren’t funny if you don’t “get it.” Countdown (R) — The latest craze in smartphone apps is a countdown to your own death. Just plug in your identifying information and the app will tell you, to the second, when you will die. It seems like harmless fun, in the vein of a Buzzfeed quiz — everybody’s doing it and sharing their results. So Quinn (Elizabeth Lail) downloads the app and is given less than three days until her time is up. She links up with stories of other short-timers and tries to find a way to beat the clock. A few fun jump scares are included, but mostly you’ll be wishing for a shorter countdown to the end of the movie.

Cliffhanger Cliff wasn’t about to be counted out in this race for Kate’s affection. He planned a wonderful day at the casino beginning with Breakfast Bingo, which I particularly like, possibly because it comes with doughnuts attached. I was included in all the festivities, also part of Cliff’s plan of action. After Breakfast Bingo, we wandered around the casino until time for lunch Bingo, which was a new addition and bound to attract a huge crowd. It was indeed crowded and we were lucky to find three places together. For this session, food items were the main topic. One game was a hamburger, another a hot dog while a third was a hardboiled egg. “We are getting more creative with our games,” I commented. “I like that.” Cliff and Kate were not listening to me, so absorbed were they in just staring at each other.

WISCONSIN EDITION

MARCH 2020 Personally, I could see nothing new to stare at. We were not close to winning for the first half, but after intermission, our cards warmed up. Cliff was on for Bonanza, which got our juices flowing and then Kate was on for the next game, one of the food items. And she Bingoed! I was so excited I nearly jumped out my seat, but Kate and Cliff didn’t seem to be paying attention. I had to grab her card and wave it to attract the attention of the nearby worker. After that exciting win, we decided it was time for lunch and chose the buffet special. “This is going to ruin our appetites for dinner,” commented Cliff. “And I had such a great surprise planned. Oh well.” Cliff pretended disappointment, but I could tell he was happy with the way the day was going. It was while we were having lunch that Cliff’s true agenda emerged. “Would you consider not seeing Paul any more?” Clearly, Kate was unprepared for this question and she stammered instead of answering for the moment. “But Paul and I have so much fun together. I would hate to give that up. Besides, what could I possibly tell him that wouldn’t crush him completely?” she finally came out with. “You could tell him your first and only love has come back into your life and that you are considering marrying him.” That stopped us all for the moment and I looked from one to

the other wondering what on earth I was doing here in the midst of this most intimate of moments. “You see,” He continued, “I’m even willing to say it in front of a witness. Now what do you think of that?” “I don’t know what to say or think or do,” said Kate. “I just need some time. Let me think about it.” But that was not to be as at that moment, Paul walked in to the restaurant and up to our table. “Looks like I got here just in time,” said Paul. “At least in time to pick up the check. I would like you all to meet my mother.” And he produced a delicate little lady just the right shape and size to be his mother. “She loves to gamble a bit so I thought I’d bring her just for fun.” (To Be Continued.)

BOB ON BINGO By Bob Whittmore

Keeping the Game Alive When was the last time you brought someone “new” to Bingo? For many of us, it’s been a very long time. As the weather gets better, we are getting closer to the start of the travel s e a s o n . Many of us will be h a v i n g friends and relatives in from out of town, or we will be traveling to some distant city. This would be a perfect time to introduce our friends and relatives to Bingo. If they are coming to your town, you already know when and where the Bingo sessions are. If you are traveling to a distant city, it’s easy to go to an Internet search engine and find out when and where Bingo is being played in the place you plan to visit. So many Bingo halls have either closed or cut back on sessions. We ALL need to support the game we love so much to make sure it remains around forever. One other thing: The other night I got yelled at because of the way I reacted the first time N-40 was called. After the caller announced the number, I shouted “FORTY?” Since shouting when N-40 is called is such a sacred part of Bingo, I guess I need to re-explain how that

custom started. From what I hear, it all started at a senior center in Fontana, California (a far-flung suburb of Los Angeles) in the late 1960s. Many of the people there were just finishing up supper, preparing for the start of Bingo. At the end of the meal, the conversation turned to Jack Benny, the comedian who always claimed to be 39 years old. Someone in the group said, “Now if he were forty, that would REALLY be old.” Within a minute, the caller started the game. The first ball out was N-40. All the people who had been talking about Jack Benny shouted … “FORTY!” And, that’s how it all started. Just a couple more things: First, are you a messy dauber or a neat one? When I get home I have ink all over my hands. During the dual dab coverall I really paint my Bingo card. I have to act quickly because, for some reason, callers tend to be faster in calling the dual dab than they are in regular games. I have never figured this out, since I find the dual dab so confusing, I have to daub slower and more cautiously. Finally, a note to Bingo hall managers: Would you PLEASE try to figure out why in many halls it is smokier in the non-smoking section? Maybe the ventilation system is working backward. Next month: A major look in the mailbox. I’m at: bobonbingo@ earthlink.net

We ALL need to support the game we love so much to make sure it remains around forever.

HOPING On my walk today I looked for signs of spring I hoped for leaf buds on the trees And robins on the wing. I spied none of these I sank into a gloom But as I bent close to the ground I saw a purple bloom. A tiny garden Of these blossoms flourished Thus was my hope for spring revived Well and truly nourished. by

Cell Phones Gone Wild Hi Guy, I am getting more and more aware of an ongoing problem at Bingo—cell phones. Even though players are asked to turn off their phones (and other devices), quite a few are obviously only turning down the volume or putting the phone on mute/ vibrate. How do I know? Because all night while the games are being played you can hear beeps and buzzing and little “pet songs” going off that are people’s ring tones. The mute is the biggest joke: When those phones go off, they vibrate against the tabletop and make very distracting sounds that are worse than the rings! Recently a woman sitting the next row over from me had her phone go off (on vibrate), and after letting it rattle on the table for far too long, she answered it and began a conversation with someone. At first her voice was low, but in typical fashion, the longer she talked the louder she got, until someone near her told her to shut up. She got angry and shouted

back, which of course brought Bingo to a halt while the two argued and workers had to step in and break things up. The most ridiculous part? The entire time the argument was going on, the woman apparently kept her cell phone connection going. After everyone calmed down and the games started again, this idiot woman holds her phone to her face and says: “Do you believe this bunch? And just because we were having a conversation!” Right away, a lot of people began shouting and complaining that the woman was still at it, me included! This time, though, she hung up the phone and kept her mouth shut, after the Bingo caller gave her a warning over the microphone. I want to say that of course, this woman’s behavior and the uproar that followed is an extreme example of “cell phones gone wild.” My hope is that you will publish this letter for Bingo players and Bingo game sponsors to read and hopefully take some kind of official action. There should be a hard and fast regulation that is enforced in all Bingo halls. Look at what they do in movie theaters. They actually run a film telling people to shut off their devices. People at Bingo should do the same. —MBB, Washington

KOLP JW

they are not the center of the universe. The idea that phones must be turned off in public venues is unrealistic. At a moment’s notice, spouses may need to reach spouses, children may need to contact parents, and so on. Few, if any, of us have the luxury of being able to turn off the demands of life for a three-hour Bingo outing. People can easily mute the ringtone, turn off vibrate, switch to text and stay connected with the world. If they refuse, then they better be prepared to be harangued by those around them who aren’t going to put up with being disturbed by them. —Guy Hey guys! (And gals!) Write to: Guy’s Turn c/o The Bingo Bugle, P.O. Box 527, Vashon, WA 98070, or email Guy directly at Tonder22@aol.com. Be sure to include your name and address (you may request that your name not be published), as typically Guy will not include anonymous letters in his columns.

Hi MBB, I agree that cell phones are a huge nuisance—at the movies, in stores, at church, at Bingo, etc. What is needed is not stricter regulation, however, but common courtesy from people who must understand once and for all that

Eight Ways to Get the Edge: Part I of II Play in Tournaments Why play tournaments? Because you are playing against other players and not against the casino, you don’t necessarily have to edge over the casino to be a winner. You just need to play more skillfully than your opponents do. This holds for any casino tournament: blackjack, craps, slots, video poker, etc. Nowadays most casinos hold daily or weekly fun tournaments that cost very little to enter (usually less than $50). As long as the casino puts all the entry fees into the prize pool, you should consider playing them. If blackjack is your game, read Kenneth R. Smith’s book, How to Win Even More Blackjack Tournaments-Vol. 2  for details on playing and betting strategies.

WISCONSIN EDITION

MARCH 2020 Use Gambling Coupons You’ve heard it before but it is worth repeating—use all the gambling coupons you can muster. Why? Because every time you use one, you have the edge! There are many types of gambling coupons: Matchplays, Lucky Bucks, First Card is an Ace, Blackjack Bonus Coupons and more. Jean Scott’s book, More Frugal Gambling, explains each coupon, how they work, and the website for the American Casino Guide lists coupons available through their guide at www. americancasinoguidebook.com. Using gambling coupons is a no brainer. Moreover, as Jean quoted from an anonymous Internet coupon hound:  “The question is not whether or not to use coupons, but how many!” Play Blackjack Skillfully One way to gain the edge over the casino is to get the math on your side. Card counting sounds too difficult for you? You can learn Speed Count in less than half an hour and play with an edge (read the  book Beat Blackjack Now  or watch the Golden Touch Blackjack DVD for details). Play Video Poker Skillfully Here it’s a question of playing the right machine using the right playing strategy while cashing in on comps and/or cash back the casino will give you just for playing. There are legions of smart video poker players that are consistently playing with an edge over the house (that included my late 91-year-old father-in-law Peter, who had quadrupled his

video poker bankroll by playing skillfully). You’ll learn everything you need to know in the Frugal Video Poker  (Jean Scott) or Bob Dancer’s book  Video Poker for Intelligent Beginners. You can also practice your playing strategies on your computer with  Video Poker for Winners. The software will alert you when you make a playing mistake and give you the right play. Moreover, for insurance, bring along a video poker strategy card  with you when you play so you will always have the correct play readily available. So why not try video poker this year? Still not convinced? Then ponder this fact. Often the highest paying slot machine on a casino floor pays less then the worst paying video poker machine. Enough said?

Resurrecting Fontainebleau Steven Witkoff, the New Yorkbased real estate investor who bought the “dormant” Fontainebleau Casino some time ago from Carl Icahn, has told the Nevada Gaming Control Board that he has given the property a thorough going-over. He reports that, despite being closed for some time, it remains in good condition. If approved, Witkoff’s new facility, to be called The Drew, will feature a new pedestrian bridge over Elvis Presley Boulevard to the new expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Drew could open before the holidays in 2022. Drag Diva Brunch Look for two new weekend food

events in Las Vegas. Published reports indicate that The House of Blues at Mandalay Bay has started what it calls the Drag Diva Brunch. After most people have eaten, a full drag show will follow. Many will be “tribute” shows. In addition, the Chinese restaurant at the Palazzo has started its “bottomless brunch” on Sundays. Patrons will have two hours to scarf down as much food as they can eat, including unlimited dim sum. Gordon Ramsay at Stateline Some are calling it the most anticipated restaurant opening ever in northern Nevada. Another Hell’s Kitchen restaurant–the best known of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s enterprises–has opened at Stateline in the Harvey’s at South Lake Tahoe. The restaurant is already nearly sold out, reservation-wise. The new Hell’s Kitchen is the second in the Silver State. The first opened in Las Vegas two years ago. Tunnel Construction Continues Media are reporting that because of the huge crowds in Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show, back in January, construction was halted for a week on a new people-moving tunnel at the Convention Center. When completed, the tunnel will be 43-hundred feet long. It is expected to start moving convention-goers in about a year.

March into Spring! As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction. — Irish Blessing It’s March. Spring beckons, as does Daylight Saving Time, March 8th. Move your clocks ahead an hour and lose an hour sleep. Yes, just what my tired old body wants to do. On the 17th, bars will be serving green beer and the Chicago River will be running green. This tradition began in 1962 when Stephen Bailey of the Chicago Plumbers Union noticed a worker with bright green coveralls resulting from the dye used to detect leaks into the Chicago River. Bailey suggested dyeing the river green for St Patrick’s Day and so it has been ever since. On the first attempt the river turned green for a week from the basically green food coloring that was dumped into the water. Currently, forty pounds is used and the green water lasts about five hours. However, the green beer that bars serve can be indulged in for much longer. As for me, margaritas are green and I’ll stick with those. Another big event this month is the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, March Madness. The idea for this tournament is credited to Ohio State coach Harold Olsen with the National Association of Basketball Coaches making it a reality in 1939. With 67 games over 21 days, over ten

billion dollars is wagered annually, over the length of the tournament. An interesting tidbit surrounding the tournament is that according to Cleveland Clinic doctors, the number of vasectomies increases by 50% during the first week of March Madness. This is attributed to patients needing a day with ice to keep swelling down, so why not spend that day in front of the TV watching basketball. The odds of choosing the winning team in every single game is over one in 9.2 quintillion. Trust me. You may not win as much, but your odds are much better at bingo. And speaking of odds, to improve them in all your endeavors, here are a few ways to summon Lady Luck and all things good. If you find a caterpillar, pick it up and toss it over your shoulder. This may not be lucky for the caterpillar but it will be for you! Hang wind chimes at your home’s entrance to entice good luck and money into your house. Wear blue, except for St. Pat’s Day when you should wear green if your ancestors were Irish Catholic or orange if your ancestors were Irish Protestants. Otherwise, wearing blue will repel negative energy. Hang Aloe vera and catnip in your home as both are lucky plants, as is bamboo. Last, keep your toilet lid closed at all times so the positive energy doesn’t drain away. Also, so your spouse’s scream in the middle of the night while visiting the bathroom doesn’t wake you up. On a personal note, March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Wearing blue, as noted above, will not only bring you luck, it will spread awareness about the need for colorectal screenings. Thanks to a colonoscopy, my colon cancer was detected and I had surgery in December. Early detection saves lives and I am blessed. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you waltz out the door with dollars. Win big. To share your good luck stories with me, email homemailbox@roadrunner. com.
