Wisconsin Edition “I’ve Been Coming To St. Francis Lion’s for Over Finch’s 30 Year on Saturdays, I Love It”, WoW! Vendor Expo Sandra Rindal won the Art & Craft Fair Bingo Bugle Monthly Oct. 9 & 23, Sweepstakes. Long before that, she’s been a loyal 2021

Bingo player at St. Francis Lion’s Club Bingo 3476 E. Howard Ave (414) 4835080 where they play Bingo every Friday starting at 6:30 PM. They play on all paper sheets, give away $1,000 in Prizes, they have a Door Prize Raffle and Pull Tabs. St. Francis Lion’s has the Lion’s Bingo Bash every 2nd and 5th Friday. It is no wonder that Sandra is a big Lion’s Club Bingo Fan. Sandra thinks playing Bingo can get pretty exciting. “Önce I won the Progressive in 2015 and I even forgot my name.” That must have been exciting. In addition to Bingo, Sandra enjoys knitting and crocheting. She makes hats to donate to Project Concern for the poor in need of a warm hat to fight the winter cold. We asked Sandra what she enjoyed about Bingo. She said, “Bingo is a fun night out and if I win, that’s a Bonus, it is all about friends and getting out to have a good time. She has 2 cats, Zoey and Lena, “They are 13 and 14 years old and they keep me company”. Sandra loves her cats and they love her. How did Sandra discover that she was the Bingo Bugle Sweepstakes Winner? She told us this story of a winning week. “I picked up the Bingo Bugle and lo and behold, there was my name on Page 11 which meant that I won the sweepstakes. The Friday

before that, I won $100 at St. Francis Lions Bingo. So it was St. Francis Lion’s Bingo ChaChing $100 then Bingo Bugle Sweepstakes ChaChing $100, that was pretty much fun”. Our winner is an avid Bingo Bugle Reader, she says, “I like Aunt Bingo and I read the Horoscope. My advice to Bingo players is don’t forget to cut out that little form on Page 11 of the Bingo Bugle and fill it out. You could win the sweepstakes just like me. I always pray, ‘Lord thanks for today and I can’t wait for tomorrow’”. Sandra has the right idea!

St. Francis Lion’s News

Russ Iwanski, the President of St. Francis Lion’s Club took some time out of his busy schedule to give us the low down of what’s happening at the Lion’s Club. “We are really involved in the community, in addition to our popular Friday Bingo, the St. Francis Lion’s Club is involved with St. Francis Days on Labor Day Weekend. We sell delicious Corn on the Cob at the corn booth. We also

have the Pull Tab Concession there as well. We always have a fun time when we sponsor Movie Night at Milton Vretenar Memorial Park, 4230 S. Kirkwood in St. Francis. We were also proud to be able to send the Police Honor Guard to Washington DC for the Police Memorial”. Anyone interested in serving the community and having fun at the same time is encouraged to stop in on a Friday evening and talk to a Lion’s member about membership. There is also a Bowling Tournament on January 29th at South Shore Bowl that may be of interest. Russ was eager too to talk about the Lion’s commitment to great Bingo. He said, “We develop a personal connection with many of the Bingo Player who join us on Friday nights. Many have started out as our guests and players and have become friends.” Russ said it all, so check out the Lions ad on Page 2 of this Bingo Bugle Newspaper and join them for Friday Bingo.

Bingo Adapts to Changing World Dear Aunt Bingo: When the Covid-19 pandemic was in full swing and at its scariest, no one had to lecture me twice on wearing a facemask, practicing social distancing and, the smartest and simplest move of all, staying home. Luckily, as a retiree, it was easy for me to stay close to home much of the time. It also got pretty boring pretty quickly, but I hung in there and followed the rules as every intelligent American did and should. As my community moved from phase one to phase two to phase three, I actually felt myself relaxing a little, being less fearful of going for a walk around the neighborhood, taking a drive to the grocery store or touching the handle of a selfserve gas pump. But my social life stayed mostly unchanged, consisting of phone calls with family and friends and

not much else. Activities, like my beloved Bingo, remained in limbo. That is, until one afternoon when I got a phone call from my friend Elaine, who said that her community center was having an outdoor Bingo session. “Bring a folding chair and something to rest your Bingo paper on and you’re good to go,” she said. I grabbed my Bingo bag, a clipboard from my desk and a folding chair from the garage and met Elaine, appropriately masked, in the community center parking lot. It was a beautiful late summer afternoon and the crowd wasn’t too large, so it was easy to place our chairs a safe distance away from each other and the rest of the players in the center’s big side yard. Workers brought us our Bingo paper (no lines!) and handed it to us using long-handled pinchers. When Bingo started, hearing the first number called was absolute heaven! It had been so long, and I really, really missed Bingo so much! Neither Elaine nor I won anything, but it hardly mattered. We got to get out and do something social, play Bingo again, and visit for a while. After our outing we both scoured the Internet for other outdoor Bingos and found two more—one at a library and one at another community center. We attended both and had a few friends join us. Each one was just as careful about seating and social distancing as the

first and made for very enjoyable outings. I strongly encourage people who feel that they have been spending too much time isolated at home to look for Bingo and other activities like these that are occurring outside and are managed safely. They are a dream come true! —Janice J., Florida Dear Janice: Your letter was perfectly timed. It arrived just a day after I attended my second of two very different outdoor community Bingos. The first was a neighborhood Bingo a friend invited me to. No cash prizes, but a lot of jovial competition and candy bar prizes. The second was an official charity Bingo that was moved down the street from an indoor auditorium to a park. Early birds got the picnic tables; everyone else contended

Caught in the Act The Department of Veterans Affairs Office of the Inspector General has been extremely busy. What’s astonishing is the criminals who actually think they’re going to get away with their crimes. A gun store thief claimed, in court in front of a judge, that he had been awarded two Purple Hearts. He was trying to get a lower sentence on a couple of other firearms offenses, including stealing 87 guns from a store and then being a felon in possession of guns. Among other things, he claimed Iraq service and said he got the medals for saving another soldier. He showed photos of his (fake) Purple Heart certificates. Nobody was fooled. Then there was the idiot who defrauded cemetery services customers out of a half million dollars by taking the payments and using them for personal gain and gambling. Let’s not forget the fool who shot up the inside of a VA hospital with a gun he had tucked in his

BINGO BUGLE PAGE 3 with sitting in their own folding chairs or on the ground. It was a little breezy and a little buggy, and the player turnout wasn’t great, which translated into smaller prizes. But the determination of everyone to have some semblance of a “normal” Bingo outing was clear, if not 100-percent realized. And I won $20! Best of luck to you and all our fellow Bingo fans as we slowly move toward a universal normal and an unhampered life. —Aunt Bingo Share your views! Write to Aunt Bingo c/o the Bingo Bugle, P.O.

wheelchair. He won’t see daylight for a long time. Sometimes, though, the OIG handles emotionally tough cases, like the VA hospital nursing assistant that murdered seven hospitalized veterans and was planning to kill an eighth by injecting them all with lethal doses of insulin. In one case medical staff discovered the patient’s blood sugar level and were able to revive him... until the nursing assistant came back and injected him again, killing him. Nursing assistants are not allowed (or trained to) administer medication. Multiple law enforcement agencies cooperated, leaving no stone unturned to rein in the killer, conducting 350 interviews, serving 60 subpoenas and so much more. Still, there are many unanswered questions, such as why wasn’t the insulin locked up to keep unauthorized people out of it? Why didn’t anyone notice a pattern that went on for over a year? But the biggest question might never be answered: Why? Why on earth did she do this?


PAGE 4 BINGO BUGLE

Yappy Days Our friend, Janis, has this very cute little dog that she takes everywhere with her. She has a specially fitted carrying case and he goes with her to her job selling real estate as well as any other place she has to go, including Bingo. No one objects to her having a case along with her and I have only once heard the little dog make noise, but that was a doozy. It was at a Saturday night Bingo and Janis, with Pappy (short for Papillion) in his pet-case, shared a table with us. Kate was having a bout with allergies and sometime into the games, she began sneezing. Every time she sneezed, Pappy barked, a short sharp woof. The caller called another number, Kate sneezed, and Pappy barked, twice this time. Everyone stretched their necks looking for the dog.

OCTOBER 2021 I opened a soft drink for Kate as that frequently stops the sneezing and Janis spoke reassuringly to the puppy case. Kate sneezed again and Pappy yapped his disapproval. The caller frowned in our direction and I had visions of us all being asked to leave. “Could we give him something to eat?” I asked Janis. “No,” she replied. “Pappy eats and drinks on a very strict schedule. Obviously, because of his elimination, I can’t afford to let him get off it. I am in real estate sales,” she said with pride. She thought about it for a minute and then undid the case and stroked Pappy. All was quiet for a few minutes while we finished the caller’s choice game and moved into the final blackout. I began to relax, thinking the crisis had passed. Then Kate sneezed, again, and Pappy let out a bark, followed by Kate sneezing again and Pappy

barking—well, you get the picture. I thanked the stars it was the last game, as I wanted to be out of there, but we had one more scene. This time it was my fault. When I get nervous, I frequently get the hiccups and this was no exception. Kate sneezed, Pappy barked, I hiccupped, and Pappy barked even louder. Through all this it was just not possible to be calm and hear the numbers. “Hush, all of you,” hissed Janis. Then Kate got the giggles between sneezes and I hiccupped and giggled right along with her. Pappy took this as an invitation to bark even longer and louder. Janis tossed her dauber onto the table and proclaimed, “I give up!” “I’m sorry, you’ll have to take the dog out,” said the caller. “All right, I know!” said Janis. She rose, picked up the puppy case and left me to play her cards. Kate sneezed and Pappy gave one final bark on the way out the door.

OCTOBER 2021

Remembering the Singing Caller I was really surprised this week when I got an e-mail from a woman who claims to have every back issue of this column. She signed off on the letter as simply, Silly Sally. There was no mention of where she lives. But, nonetheless, the letter is very interesting: “Dear Bob,” she writes. “I am likely your only fan who actually saves all your columns. I know you have been doing your column in the BINGO BUGLE for nearly two decades. During that time, you have been a strong crusader for non-smoking areas in Bingo halls...for small halls in small towns...and for the rights of Bingo players to complain when they find something wrong. “‘You pay for the game,’ you always say. But, here is why I am writing. I was looking at one of your columns from around two years ago. I don’t know if you remember what you wrote, or whether you have the old columns...but you were living in Palm Springs, California,

at the time and played Bingo in a place that was literally across the street from your apartment. “You wrote that the Bingo session was conducted by an 89-year-old former showgirl and actress. The funniest part was that you didn’t know whether the session was a concert for the showgirl with some Bingo thrown in, or a Bingo game with entertainment. But there was one thing you mentioned in the column that I found most interesting. You stated that the place where the Bingo game took place was in a hotel/restaurant complex that drew in visitors from all parts of the world. “What fascinated me was the fact that you said that only once had someone come in to play Bingo who had never played before. That person was from a small Asian country. I began to realize just how universal Bingo really is. To be honest, I have NEVER met anyone who has never played Bingo. Do you remember that woman who sang and called the games? — Silly Sally.” Sally, I certainly do. I miss those old times in Palm Springs. But, time moves on and situations change. During the past two years I have been living Las Vegas, playing the game we all love as often as I can. Alas, I am moving on again. My plan is to go back to my roots, to that small town in Indiana where I first played Bingo in the basement cafeteria of my brand-new grade school. As I have noted in earlier columns, they STILL play Bingo there. I hope to join them again soon.

He had instead discovered the element phosphorus. * “Phantom Vibration Syndrome” is the name for when someone thinks their phone is vibrating, but it isn’t. * Cats have more than 100 vocal sounds, while dogs only have about 10. * Astronaut John Young caused a small scandal in 1965 when he smuggled a corned beef sandwich aboard Gemini 3. When he took it out in zero gravity and tried to eat it, it broke up, sending crumbs flying around the cabin. No harm was done, but the incident sparked a safety review by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations and a statement from NASA assuring that steps had been taken “to prevent recurrence of corned beef sandwiches in future flights.”

* A tip from our good friend A.S.M.: “When buying berries packed in a basket, check the bottom to see if there’s a juice stain. This means that the strawberries at the bottom are crushed.” * “Here’s a great tip for use at bath time with baby: I have a sippy cup that changes color when the drink is hot. Oddly enough, it changes at the perfect temperature for baby’s bath. So, I fill the tub and toss in the cup. When the cup starts to change back to its original color (blue), I know the bathwater is not too hot. I always swish the water around and check with my wrist also, but it is a good visual clue to check.” — P.B. in Idaho * “To remove muffins or rolls from a pan, set it on an old, damp towel for a minute. The steam must loosen the bottoms because they just slide right out. I thank my mom for this tip.” — J.R. via e-mail * When heating milk in a pan, “seal” the pan with unsalted butter to keep the milk from filming and sticking to the sides. Lightly coat all sides of the pan with butter, and the milk is sure to not leave scum, which can take away from the rich flavor of the milk.

Poetry Corner PERSONAL HYGIENE by Charlene James-Duguid I remember when the standard practice, Based on wartime frugality, Was a bath once a week, Preferably on Saturday night Before marching off, clean, to church On a Sunday morning. The question is, Did we smell the rest of the week? None of this daily showers with gels And lotions and creams. No shampoos able to put a springtime garden to shame.

He says, “Baths were organized by pecking order, Mom, my sisters, me, then finally my pa. We stood Around in a drafty farm kitchen, Wind whistling through the rafters. Each family member got a swift three minute dunking. So just pick this odoriferous, bacterial event apart.

Nebraska Gambling Proposal As promised, sponsors of a trio of proposals that would authorize casino gambling at horse racetracks in Nebraska have swiftly gone to the Nebraska Supreme Court to contest Secretary of State Bob Evnen’s recent ruling disqualifying the issue from consideration by Nebraska voters in November according to the Lincoln Journal Star. Lynne McNally, representing the sponsors of the successful petition drive that sought to place the issue on the ballot, said the decision was “incorrect as a matter of law because each of the three initiatives meets the applicable requirements of the Nebraska Constitution as to form and procedure.” The initiatives include a proposed constitutional

OCTOBER 2021 amendment to legalize casino gambling at Nebraska racetracks, while also proposing two laws that would regulate and tax casino gambling. Chicago Mayor Seeks Gambling Operators According to the Chicago Tribune, Mayor Lori Lightfoot took the next step this summer in the push for a Chicago casino, putting out a request for gambling operators and real estate developers to submit plans about how they would build and run what is expected to be a gigantic betting parlor in the city. The request for information from the operators was the expected next step after Springfield lawmakers came through with the changes to the casino tax structure the mayor wanted to the legislation that allowed a gambling hall in the city.

Indiana State Senate has reportedly revealed that his fellow legislators could begin considering a measure that would legalize online casino gambling as early as next year. According to an August report from the news domain at PlayIndiana.com, Jon Ford, who has represented Indiana State Senate District 30 since 2014, explained that his office is already working on language for a proposal that could see “The Hoosier State” introduce as many as 39 online casino licenses. PlayIndiana.com reported that Ford plans to present his iGaming legislation early next year although the ongoing threat of coronavirus may ultimately delay this timeline as lawmakers seek to prioritize more essential matters such as the Midwestern state’s budget.

said it will move its downtown riverboat onto a $21 million to $25 million land-based facility in early 2022. The casino is expanding its current dockside facility and turning the valet parking area into indoor space. The riverboat’s 859 slot machines and 12 table games will be moved into what is now Hollywood’s atrium, said Aaron Mollura, Hollywood’s vice president of marketing. The landside move means the casino can sell or lease its gambling boat to free up dock space, which could be used by cruise boats traveling the river, said Jeannie Magdefrau, general manager of Hollywood Casino. Construction is set to begin in spring 2021.

PAGE 10 BINGO BUGLE

Will Ed’s Money Last? I received an unusual question from an 82-year-old blackjack player, whom I’ll call Ed. He sent me a letter that said in summary: “I’ve been playing blackjack for 40 years and I enjoy the camaraderie of playing. I’m OK financially, and what I’d like to do is to set aside $75,000 to play blackjack more frequently (four days a week). How long will my money last?” It turns out that Ed was married for 55 years and his spouse recently passed away after a long illness. To combat his loneliness, he started to play blackjack regularly at a local casino. Now he wants to play more frequently to stay “active and mentally alert.” He mentioned in his letter that his local casino offers double-deck ($10 minimum) and six-deck ($5 minimum) games. Ed would like to play “about 3-hour sessions,” and he made it a point to tell me that he “knows his basic playing strategy cold.” If Ed sticks to his plan, he will be playing a lot of blackjack every year: 62,400 hands to be exact. This assumes that he plays 100 hands per hour for three hours on each visit, four days a week for 52 weeks. In Ed’s local casino, the rules specify that the dealer hits soft 17 (h17) in all games, meaning the house edge that he will face is 0.40 percent in the $10 double-deck game and 0.56 percent in the $5 minimum six-deck game. (Also, resplitting of Aces allowed in six deck game.)

OCTOBER 2021 To answer Ed’s question, I calculated how much of his bankroll would be consumed if he played for 10 years, and also 15 years, and how much (if any) of his bankroll would be left. The results may surprise you. Ten Years Over the course of 10 years, Ed will play 624,000 hands of blackjack. If he plays solely the double-deck game with $10 minimum bets, here’s what will happen: --He will make over 6-million dollars in bets ($6,240,000 to be exact). --His theoretical loss is $24,960 (based on the house edge of 0.40 percent). --His actual loss with 95.4 percent probability will fall in the range of -$6,792 to -$43,128. The above calculations show that Ed has more than enough bankroll to last him 10 years even if he lost $43,128, which is the lower end of the range. At age 92, he would still have at least $31,872 left of his original $75,000 bankroll. And get this: the chance that Ed would lose more than $43,128 over 10 years is only 2.3 percent (or 1 in 43), giving him even more reassurance that his bankroll will last. Fifteen Years Here are the results if Ed played the double-deck game for 15 years. --He will make $9,360,000 worth of bets. --His theoretical loss is $37,440 (based on the house edge of 0.40 percent). --He has a 95.4 percent probability that his actual loss will fall in the range of -$15,188 to -$59,692. Even after 15 years of playing, at age 97, Ed’s bankroll will have lasted, and, in fact, he would still probably have at least $15,308 left. (And he has only a slim 2.3 percent chance of losing more than $59,692.) What if Ed decides to play the six-deck game with $5-minimum bets? The data shows that no matter which game Ed plays, as long as he sticks to the basic playing strategy and makes only minimum bets, his $75,000 bankroll is sufficient to allow him to

play four days per week with threehour playing sessions for 10 or 15 years. I sent Ed the above information, and also suggested that he obtain a Player’s Card and always get rated when he plays. I don’t know the specifics of his local casino’s comping policy but, if it’s like most casinos, he will get comps worth about 25 percent of what the casino expects to win from him (and more than likely they will rate him as losing one percent of everything he bets). This means Ed can expect to get roughly $23,400 worth of comps over 15 years of playing the double-deck game (or roughly half as much if he instead plays the six-deck game). The comps are a nice perk that will cover about 40 percent of his loss. I also cautioned Ed to avoid using a betting progression because his average bet will increase, as will the standard deviation (or how much he will stray from his expected loss). This will result in a

By Gayle Mitchell Get a Kick out of Triple Double Bonus Video Poker Triple Double Bonus Video Poker is one of the video poker versions with a real WOW! factor. The paytable offers a generous payout of 4,000 coins for four Aces if the fifth or kicker card is a two, three or four. Further, you are not shortchanged for a Royal Flush as you still receive the same 4,000-coin payout for this top hand. Let’s explore further these two options for a top payday. Quad or four-of-a-kind 2s, 3s and 4s also present some profitable opportunities as seen below. However, there is a penalty in that; three-of-a-kind is reduced five coins to a max-coin return of only 10. Of course, straights and flushes are similarly decreased. I have re-arranged the pay table below moving the straight flush item up to allow readers to view the various top awards for quads in a group for this version.

WISCONSIN EDITION wider range for his actual loss and a greater worst-case loss over 10 (and 15) years. I also suggested that if he gets the urge to bet more than the minimum, he should do so only when the remaining un-dealt cards are richer in tens, picture cards, and aces. (I told him to play the double-deck game, watch the cards that were played, and if he didn’t see many of these cards played after the first two or three rounds after the shuffle, then and only then should he consider to modestly increase his bet.) Note: I also summarized for him the pros and cons of learning and using a simple card counting system, but at his age Ed decided for now that he wanted to stick with the basic strategy. I wished Ed a long and healthy life and “good cards” at the blackjack table. He thanked me for the information and said he felt good knowing that his $75,000 bankroll will “probably last me for the rest of my life.” In this group of quads, you will notice that four 2s, 3s and 4s offer a good payout of 400 coins. Even better, add a fifth card kicker of an ace, two, three or four and you are in for a grand 2,000-coin payout. Half a Royal, in fact. Additionally, 4 Aces without the required fifth card still puts you in the money with an 800-coin payout. The table below illustrates the payout for specific winning hands, one-coin return payout and maximum coin return payout. Strategy Tips: Aces with a particular fifth card and as always, a Royal is the goal here. Also, in an aggressive search for four aces, you should utilize the strategy to hold the ace only in plays where you are dealt other high cards (Jacks+) not suited. Otherwise, if dealt a suited ace and face, then you will hold both. The reduced pay of 10 coins for 3-of-a-kind does in turn reduce the overall percentage return for this game; however, I find it is difficult, as I sure you will, to pass up the generous payouts at the top to play this exciting VP version. Good Luck catching Royalty or Royal 4 Aces w/ the right kicker!

Giant Pies, Oh My! Pandemic Plan: Clean, organize entire house. Exercise, lose weight, eat healthy. Reality: Sit in my recliner, binge watch TV, eat cereal with a side of potato chips, take long naps. –Save Me from Myself During October 800 million pumpkins will be harvested. That’s a lot of pumpkin pies, pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin everything else. Pumpkin pies did not exist when the colonists first settled in America. Their version involved cutting off the pumpkin tops, removing seeds, and filling the pumpkins with milk, spices, and honey before baking them in hot ashes. The Guinness Book of World Records states the largest pumpkin pie in the U.S.A was baked at the 2010 New Bremen, Ohio, Pumpkinfest. At twenty feet across with 440 sheets of dough crust, it was eventually cut into 3,000 pieces (someone counted them?) that were then eaten by hungry pie lovers. I’ve never cared for pumpkin pie and I hate Trick or Treat night and dressing up in ridiculous costumes. How ironic that Robert and I chose to be married in October, my least favorite month. We wanted to be married on Sweetest Day because we were sweet on each other. We still are and will celebrate 43 years of marriage on October 15th. Where the concept of Sweetest Day came from is unknown, although some say it began in Cleveland in 1921 when

twelve candy makers delivered 20,000 boxes of candy to the underprivileged. Others say it is a devious plan created by the candy industry solely to increase their sales. Either way, it’s a win-win for candy lovers. October 27 is Black Cat Day and in America a black cat crossing your path signals bad luck. In Ireland or Japan though, black cats that dart in front of you are lucky omens. In Germany, either bad or good luck will strike you depending on which direction the cat is walking; that is, whether left to right or vice versa. As someone who has to stop and think about which is my right or left hand, I would be totally confused trying to figure out if Lady Luck was with me, or if I should go hide under my bed. And speaking of Lady Luck, she is still being mean to me gambling wise so I’ve been told I need to do two things. First, I should negotiate with the universe. That means I should stop being so negative and stop saying I’m not lucky. What I put out to the universe will return to me because I am creating negative energy. I should change my attitude and let the universe know I deserve good things by being more positive. Second, I should surround myself with good karma by doing random good deeds such as dropping coins in parking meters or sticking a dollar bill under a windshield wiper to surprise some unknown person. Afterwards, I should not expect payback and if the universe does notice and reward me, I should be thankful and express my gratitude. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big, then share your good karma with others. To share your comments though, email me at homemailbox@ roadrunner.com and I will respond. If I don’t, the universe may punish me and that scares me more than eating Halloween candy that hasn’t been x-rayed.
