It seems that every week there is a crime associated with a bingo establishment. A robbery, a burglary, and every other crime that can be associated where money can be found. The thieves and crooks are following Willy Sutton’s answer to why he robbed banks. He said that is where the money is. The same can be said for live bingo halls. The halls seem to be magnets for those that want to gain money by nefarious means. The crimes seem to happen almost every week and some are not only money oriented. Violence while not a usual part of the crime seems to happen now and then as part of the crime. In any event these crimes are committed with a surprising frequency against the bingo halls.

Virgin Games is announcing their newest promotion centered around the TV show, The Price is Right. This game will have three levels of prizes and even a wheel that will add to the prize.

Bingo Day Consolidation Think Bingo Bingo Las Vegas Casino

Do not miss out on the fun and the possible funds that may come your way.

Another big consolidation of the bingo sites is in the works. 888 is said to be buying out Wink bingo, and what could that mean to other sites and bingo players. This could be a battle of titans with Party Gaming against 888 as both are going to be mammoth in size with their acquisitions. This kind of financial power may benefit players as a battle could mean an onslaught of bigger jackpots to attract players. If this happens be prepared to take advantage of the chance to win a sizable jackpot. The question is will this mean more buyouts of other sites by either power. This buyout by 888 could become a problem about site software. The software makes a site easy to use and a fall off in site performance is not easily overcome by the site when their customers are affected. Let us see how this plays out in the coming quarter.

Think bingo is already thinking of the days after the holidays and the promotions that they will run for their new players and the players that have been loyal to their site.
