Bingo Players are Happy That Bingo is Back

When we interview Bingo Players throughout the area and ask them about the return of Bingo’s we find one universal opinion. They couldn’t be happier. We talked to a number of players, they were in agreement. Bingo is beneficial. We talked to Jane, she said, “I’m so happy that some Bingo Halls figured out how to bring back Bingo and do it safely.” We think that’s the most important aspect of Bingo’s return - The Safety Factors. Elizabeth was getting bored because so many occasions and events have been postponed and cancelled. She said, “I really enjoy playing Bingo and it was pretty boring and lonely during the months when there were no games. I don’t mind wearing a mask and following the rules. It is all for our health and safety”. We contacted some Bingo Operators and Bingo Halls too. They were all appreciative for the cooperation they receive from all the great Bingo Players. Jim in South Milwaukee couldn’t be happier with the way Bingo Players are doing their part to keep themselves and their fellow players safe and healthy. “When we decided to bring Bingo back I wasn’t sure if we would get the cooperation we needed to provide safe Bingo, but we did. All of our Players know that it took a lot of hard work to establish the procedures and implement the equipment and necessary supplies. They are happy to cooperate”.

Cutting the Power Dear Aunt Bingo, At Bingo I have noticed some players who sit directly in front of the caller and tell the caller during the game the number they are waiting for on for a Bingo or for the Bingo Balls charity game tickets prize, and they win the prize. Over time, I began to notice they seemed to win more often than one would think. The only thing that seemed to be the same in all cases is that they would sit close to the caller and tell the caller the number needed. I began to observe the caller, although it is not easy to do when you are a player. I noticed that some callers seemed to be turning the Bingo ball machine on and off a lot, particularly near the end of the game. When the machine is turned off, the number in the hopper (waiting to be placed in the monitor) would fall back into the machine and a different number would pop up when the machine was turned back on. Closer observation showed that the caller could look at the number on the ball in the hopper by using a knuckle, finger, or thumb and quietly turning the ball. Cheating could occur when the caller dumps the number by turning off the machine and bringing up a different ball which could occur a few times in the 20-25 second interval between numbers called. One night, a player sitting near the caller kept telling the caller the number needed. I watched the caller as closely as possible, and after the game was over I heard the caller apologize to the player for not bringing out her number. I believe this meant that she tried to get her number but would not

NOVEMBER 2020 do it with me watching so closely. I wonder how often this type of thing happens. I called the Michigan Gaming Division and complained about the Bingo machine being turned off and on during the games. I was told that there was no rule governing this action, although if there were cheating, a complaint could be made. How does one prove cheating in this case? I like to play Bingo, but the experience is ruined for me when I see the caller turning the machine off and on during Bingo play and when Bingo is called but not yet verified. How can Bingo players get the practice of turning the Bingo machine off and on during play stopped? —PS, via e-mail Dear PS, People sitting at the front of the room talk to the caller all the time. That’s part of the fun for them and why they sit there—of course they are going to tell the caller what number they need. But it’s not a plot to signal to the caller, it’s simply part of their ritual to “will” their ball up the chute and win the money. And I’m sure the caller apologizing was just friendly banter. There could be any number of reasons why the caller would turn off the machine: perhaps to cool the motor, to be able to hear what someone is saying, or just to give his or her ears a rest from the noise of the blower and the clattering Bingo balls. And if it is not a violation of state gaming law or Bingo hall policy, then the caller is doing nothing wrong by shutting off the machine whenever he or she chooses. It would be pretty likely with as much ball manipulation you’re theorizing is taking place that at least a handful of other players would notice and take issue with the caller right there and then. Bingo players are a pretty astute bunch, and vocal to boot. If the practice bothers you, why not type up a petition, get a bunch of players to sign it, submit it to the hall manager, and calmly explain your reasoning behind it. If the manager sees that it is an issue with players, she or he will likely talk to the callers and ask them not to do it anymore. If the manager chooses not to change the practice, then choose to play somewhere else. (Or, you could just sit at the front and call out the numbers YOU need—just kidding!). —Aunt Bingo

OnStar Help Available for Veterans in Crisis We’ve all seen the ads for OnStar gadgets in vehicles that provide instant help for people who are in wrecks. Press the button and an emergency certified adviser is right there, ready to help. The Department of Veterans Affairs has hooked up with OnStar to provide suicide prevention help to veterans. Quick access to suicide prevention help while in a car? I had to think about that for a minute before I got it. Think about it, and you’ll get it, too. OnStar has a number of features. If your vehicle has been stolen, it can pinpoint its location for police. If there’s been a bad wreck in a rural area, they can give GPS coordinates to rescue personnel. If it’s something as simple as running out of gas or having a flat

tire, make a quick call to OnStar and help is on the way. Now, with this added feature through the VA, veterans in crisis have another way to get help. If your vehicle is OnStar capable and you’ve never signed up, consider doing it now. Check the website onstar.com to verify that your vehicle is eligible. Get the app (OnStar Guardian) and put it on your phone. It works while you’re in any vehicle. For veterans with suicidal thoughts, the ability to instantly and easily reach out to someone could be a life changer. OnStar personnel have been trained to ask a few fast questions and provide immediate access to the Veterans Crisis Line. These few seconds matter: There’s no fumbling through the phone and looking for the crisis line number. Just press the OnStar button and help is there. I like this. I mean, I really like it. It seems that lately the VA has come up with some good ideas to help our vulnerable brothers and sisters, and this is one of them. who encourages Moana to see who she really is inside: a brave and capable and determined spirit who is the only one who can save her family.

Grandparents don’t get enough credit. Ideally, grandchildren come along at a time when a person is financially established and with enough leisure time to devote at least a portion of it to being truly present in the lives of their grandchildren — passing on a passion, providing a secure home base or just simply enjoying time spent together. But that’s not always the case. Many grandparents right now are playing a tremendously important role in caregiving while schools are closed or operating virtually. Other grandparents keenly feel the lack of time spent with the grandkids in areas where it’s still necessary to keep your distance. In honor of grandparents, here are a few phenomenal grandparents on film: Moana — In this Disney classic, Moana is a young woman who must find the courage to let go of the safety of her island and strike out across the sea to track down a demi-god who can help her restore the heart of the ocean. And this despite the fact that her father forbids her to go near the water! Enter the free-spirited grandma,

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory — Legendary chocolate maker Willy Wonka hides five Golden Tickets in chocolate bars — the winners will receive a tour of his Chocolate Factory and a lifetime supply of chocolate! Poor Charlie Bucket — who finds one of the Golden Tickets — is a sweet, devoted grandchild and chooses to bring his Grandpa Joe. As the pair follow the delightful and treacherous tour, Joe shows off the best of grandparenting skills: encouraging and advocating for Charlie at every turn. Little Miss Sunshine — Little Olive isn’t your typical beauty pageant contestant, but that doesn’t stop her from declaring her desire for the Little Miss Sunshine title. Olive’s family — mom, dad, brother, uncle — is dysfunctional, to say the least, and while her grandfather might have some problems of his own and lack proper judgment, he’s there for Olive, coaching her and supporting her all the way. Parenthood — Jason Robards plays a patriarch to an ensemble of neurotic kids who are going through their own issues with parenting. The ensemble comedy is sweet and endearing, and all about the sacrifices and accommodations you make for your kids (and grandkids!). The Princess Bride — OK, this movie is not about a grandparent, but who can leave out Peter Falk as Grandpa, who narrates the story of the swashbuckling, deathdefying Dread Pirate Roberts and the true-hearted Buttercup? Not me.

Badgered at Bingo Kim is a fiendish Bingo player who doesn’t have a good time unless she wins at least once, preferably several times. Recently, sh brought her new daughterin-law to the Saturday night game with her and we got to meet her for the first time. Eileen was a very shy little girl who seemed too young to be married and she was having her first introduction to Bingo. We shared a table with and I tried to befriend Eileen to make her more comfortable. Kate took on Kim and distracted her as much as possible. Eileen confided that she really wanted to please her new motherin-law but was at a loss as to how best to do that. Kim seemed to

NOVEMBER 2020 expect something from her, but she didn’t know what. “I think she expects me to know all about Bingo,” she whispered. “But I’ve never played before. How can I fake it?” “I’ll help,” I promised. “Just follow my lead.” We got through the warm-ups with Kim announcing when she was on or even just close. She was certainly a noisy person—no wonder Eileen was intimidated. When we got to the mid-way blackout, I noticed Eileen had a really good card, but didn’t say anything for fear of spooking her. I tried to keep an eye on her card without letting her know I was watching her. When I could stand it no longer, I hissed, “Look, Eileen, you’re on!” She said nothing at all. At last somebody called a Bingo. Eileen nudged Kim and whispered, “I’ve got one, too.” “What?” yelled Kim. “Well, call Bingo.” Eileen just shook her head and said nothing. She sat nestled under Kim’s arm as if seeking and fearing protection. “Yell Bingo,” commanded Kim. Eileen said nothing. “Oh, for heavens sake,” said Kim exasperated. “BINGO! We have a Bingo over here.” “Sorry, too late,” said the caller. “I’ve already closed the game.” “You can’t,” said Kim. “She had

it, but she didn’t get the word out. She’s a new player. You’ve got to let her have her Bingo. I insist!” But insisting with this caller got Kim nowhere. She finally gave up, but she was angry with Eileen for losing the win. I was ready to give her the money to shut her up. Again, in the Bonanza game, Eileen was on. I kept my eye on her card and was ready to nudge her to life when her number came up in the screen. “Oh,” yelled Eileen. “I have a-a-a KIM!” The caller looked at her patiently. “Do you mean you have a Bingo?” she asked. Eileen nodded, too embarrassed to speak. “It’s a simple word. Try it. Bingo.” But Eileen could not get the word out. “Okay, just for you, we’ll call it a Kim, or maybe a Kimgo.”

BOB ON BINGO By Bob Whittmore My One Card Dream * Cooking a recipe with garlic and onions to start? Invite me to dinner! But first, remember to let the onions cook to nearly translucent before adding the garlic, which cooks much faster. If you put both in at the same time, the garlic will burn before the onions have a chance to deepen their flavor. * Automatic toilets are great for not having to touch the handles, but they can be scary for kids — and some adults too, if I’m being honest. Try putting a sticky note over the sensor so that it will not flush until you take it off, giving you some control. * “For chores, I write tasks on sticky notes and put them up on our family board. The kids choose the things they want to do, and when they are done to my satisfaction I sign their ticket. At the end of the week, they can bring me the tickets to pay out. This is for extra money, so they don’t have to do it; I don’t have to chase them, and I don’t have to keep track of it either.” — E.L. in Montana * Every so often, use a very diluted bleach solution to rinse out your reusable water bottles. Put them on a bottle rack to air dry completely before sealing them back up.

* The original time machine in Back to the Future was not a DeLorean, but an old refrigerator. According to HuffPost, “Ultimately, it was determined that it probably was not a good idea to use a refrigerator in such a manner as kids might want to reenact the scene.” * Napoleon introduced brass buttons on soldier uniforms’ sleeves to discourage them from wiping their noses. * The asteroids in Star Wars were actually painted potatoes. * The first webcam was created to check a coffeepot! In 1993, researchers in the University of Cambridge’s computer science department really didn’t like getting up from their chairs to check the coffeepot just to find it empty, so they wired a system that would stream three images per minute from the Trojan Room, where the pot was kept, to the internal computer network. By the end of that year, the stream made it onto the new World Wide Web, endowing the Trojan Room coffeepot with international, if brief, fame.

If you remember, last time around I printed a rather lengthy letter from a woman who identified herself as Silly Sally. She sent it to me at: bobonbingo@earthlink. net. She reminded me of a column I had written two years ago about a woman who had been a showgirl and an actress who was a kind of “singing Bingo caller.” The woman was 89 at the time. Sally’s letter brought back a flood of memories. And, her comment t h a t she has E V E R Y column I have ever written r e a l l y tickled me. I guess she is a fan. It’s nice to have fans. However, this is not the right time to brag. Anyway, I started looking back into the archives and I found a column that I had written some years ago about how much I think it would be fun to play an entire evening with only ONE Bingo card. I mean EVERYONE in the hall would play on one card…that’s it…ONE CARD. After all, that’s the way we played at the hotel/ restaurant where the 89-year-old woman called Bingo and sang her heart out each week. Bear with me on this. What I am trying to say, without incurring

the wrath of Bingo hall owners, is that I really detest electronic Bingo machines. I really feel that Bingo is not made to be played that way. And, I hate the machines for another reason, they are too expensive for me to play. I have always been a poor person. I can only afford paper and usually only a so-called SIX-ON card. And, folks, there is another reason I only buy a SIX-ON. I can’t play anymore cards than that without getting lost. Just imagine this: EVERYONE in the hall gets ONE card. And the player uses it all night. After all, the numbers change in every game, so using a single card is perfectly fine. Those who DO have the money could pay a huge price for the card and if he or she had a winning card, the w i n n e r would get big bucks. Cheaper cards would pay less. But, alas, that is NOT going to happen. Too many people are high rollers when it comes to all types of gaming. By the way, one night, years ago, I saw a tourist buy $200 worth of Dual Dabs in a machine— you know, the game that has two numbers in each square. He didn’t win. And, there is a lesson here. As I have always said, you don’t play Bingo to win, you play Bingo to be among friends, have fun, yell at people you know, sometimes enjoy food and blow off some steam, and, now and then…WIN. See you next time.

“singing Bingo caller.”

Keep Playin’ Pop! Hi Guy, My Pop is getting on in years and cannot do a lot of the activities he used to enjoy. One of those activities is Bingo. He has trouble following the caller and tracking the numbers—and can get loud when he gets frustrated or confused. But he will also get upset if I try and help him. My problem is that he still insists on going to Bingo, and I haven’t got the heart to say no. Luckily, no one has complained about him at Bingo—at least that I am aware of. I am worried that it is only a matter of time. What would you do? —Abe G., via e-mail Hi Abe,

It sounds to me like you’re handling things just fine. Clearly you are worried about what

will happen if/when someone at Bingo complains about him. If it hasn’t happened, why be concerned now? I think your father has every right to get out and play Bingo as long as he can. Should the time come when he simply can’t handle it or someone does take issue with his behavior, then you can deal with it. In the meantime, I would suggest that you try and be direct with him about his resistance to you helping him play. If you can get him to accept your assistance without getting upset, it will probably extend the time he can enjoy Bingo a great deal. (Here’s a tip: Tell him you just want to make sure he doesn’t miss a number and lose a jackpot. Fear of losing out on the cash might bring him around!) A side note: Studies have shown that the process of searching and finding called numbers during Bingo is a very good activity for brain stimulation in seniors. Staying with Bingo may actually help your father keep his brain sharp longer. —Guy Hey guys! (And gals!) Write to: Guy’s Turn c/o The Bingo Bugle, P.O. Box 527, Vashon, WA 98070, or e-mail 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.

Video Poker for Dummies Please don’t send me emails about how upset you are over the title of this column. If you are reading this far, then I’ve succeeded in getting your attention. Now I aim to keep it by giving you information on how to play one of the best casino games, which could result in you winning more money. Slots vs Video Poker

If you are a die-hard slot player, you know very well that today’s slot machines come in all different shapes, sizes, and flavors. The newer slots have high tech graphics and sound effects, game-within-agame features, bonus jackpots, familiar TV game show themes, and more. However, there is one undeniable fact about a slot machine. It’s impossible

WISCONSIN EDITION

NOVEMBER 2020 to calculate what a slot machine will pay back with the information that is provided on the face of the machine. Only two people know this deep, dark secret–your friendly casino slot manager and the slot manufacture that sold them the machine. So even though casinos may advertise that their slot machines pay “up to 99%,” you have no clue that the slot machine standing in front of you returns that much. Ahh, but standing next to those slot machines are the fewer in number, but higher in payback, video poker machines. Although they look like slot machines there is one major difference. All the information you need to determine a video poker machine’s payback percentage is contained smack dab on the front of the machine. So, unlike slot machines, reading a video poker machine’s pay schedule is very important since it will give you information on the machine’s payback. And since video poker machines are not all created equal, by understanding how to read a video poker machine you can scout the casino floor to find the ones that have the highest payback. For more information on how to evaluate particular pay schedules, visit smartgaming. com Playing Skill

First you must understand that there is another important factor besides knowing how to read the pay schedules on video poker machines. And that is

your skill in playing them. Unlike slot machines where skill plays no role, it’s quite different with video poker. You will be dealt five electronic cards and you must decide which cards you want to keep (or hold) and which ones you want to discard for new ones (i.e., you only get to draw once). Your objective of course is to end up with a fivecard poker hand which results in a payoff. So, no matter how well you learn to read the machine’s pay schedule, if you insist on discarding a low pair and keeping a single high card, or always keeping a kicker, your return will be much lower. Fortunately, several video poker experts have already computed the optimum playing strategy for different video poker games. These strategies are available in books, videos, and software programs. However, here’s a tip that will get you started playing like a pro. Purchase an inexpensive video poker strategy card by one of these experts and take the card with you when you play. As the hands pop up on the screen, refer to the card so that you will always be making the correct play. And don’t be embarrassed if you have to use it; even the pros carry and use them. Playing this way will be slow going in the beginning and cut down on your hourly win rate, but it’s a way to get started with minimum study time. Next month, I will share 12 more Video Poker Tips. Good luck until then!

Sinkie, Not Stinkie Honor to soldiers everywhere who bravely bear this country’s cause. Honor to citizens who care for brothers in the field and serve, as they best can, the same cause. –Abe Lincoln Christmas is drawing near, but I say, Stop, we haven’t enjoyed Thanksgiving yet! Holiday decorations appeared in October. Christmas trees before turkeys? There’s something wrong with that scenario. In the wake of Covid-19, we have much to mourn this year, but also much for which to be thankful. Among my blessings are my publisher, Tara; her associate, Dick Bajai; bingo owners, workers, and fellow players. My family, friends, and other faithful readers are always a joy, among them Carolyn and Chris; John and Marle. And, of course, Robert my husband, who faithfully reads every column I write and then tells me how wonderful each is and how talented I am. I love him dearly for his lie telling and for myriad other reasons for which I am grateful. Since I’m an author of sorts by writing this column, I’d like to note that November 1 has been National Author’s Day since 1949. You can honor your favorite authors by sending them a letter; emailing them; or by buying their books. Or you can become an author yourself by beginning your own writing project. I did that when I wrote After Sybil, From the

Letters of Shirley Mason about my multiple personality friend. Put pen to paper, or fingers to a computer, and engage your brain. You may be surprised by what you can create. As much as we love Thanksgiving, the day after that holiday, Black Friday, has become increasingly important to many. Shoppers are enticed to indulge in store shopping to officially begin the Christmas buying frenzy. This day is also Dine Over Your Kitchen Sink Day. Basically, it celebrates having a quick bite as you stand in the kitchen; rather than sitting down to enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers. Robert does this, and if you do also, then you and he are sinkies. No, not stinkies—sinkies, although that may be correct also after you eat. I am not a sinkie—I prefer to sit since I almost always end up with food dribbled down my front; not a pretty picture. Bingo games have restarted at last. We wanted to play in Vegas when we were there in August, but we had to leave early due to a medical emergency on my part. Their games were up and running and we were looking forward to going, but alas it didn’t happen. During the pandemic, Bingo Bugle’s weren’t available to enjoy reading about bingo even though we couldn’t play bingo so that was a double whammy. I recommend checking out Bingo Bugle online at www.bingobugle.com. Click on bingo finder and you can read a variety of Bugles in different locations. It’s interesting to read about different versions of bingo, payouts, and other happenings in bingo halls other than our own. And remember, November 11th is Veteran’s Day in honor of our military. Take a vet to dinner or to play bingo. Express your appreciation for their service. They deserve our gratitude and thanks for serving. To share your thoughts, contact me at homemailbox@roadrunner.com. I’m always thankful for my letters and emails. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big.
