What You'll Get
Randomly generated number-letter combinations can be a lot of fun, as illustrated by bingo, Battleship, and poking at your accountant's keyboard while he's trying to type. Revel in alphanumeric bliss with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Bingo Bucks at Bedlam Bingo on S. May Ave. Bingo Bucks may be applied to any bingo-card purchase.
The nonprofit Bedlam Bingo spices up the classic square-stamping game with hefty jackpots and lively theme nights, all to benefit local VFW Post 1317. Callers bellow numbers in front of a large light-up scoreboard as players mark off their cards ($1–$5) and cross their eyes for good luck. Bedlam Bingo isn’t shy about big-money payouts, guaranteeing three games of $777 each day and a $1,000 game every Friday. Nighttime and daytime events keep things interesting, as when the Monday Madness tailgate party ups the ante with a prize ball for a 40-inch flat-screen TV. Friday and Saturday evenings pay tribute to the healing powers of Day-Glo with Cosmic Bingo, featuring glow-in-the-dark cards, music, and dancing.
Recently renovated, the Bedlam Bingo hall now sports a splashy red paint job that contributes to the casino vibe. A sizable room full of long white tables allows players to spread out so that, unlike when they play unlucky cards, they're not restricted to occupying the free space in the middle. Players can choose smoking or nonsmoking seating.
