Like postage stamps and gold-plated Yahtzee dice, bingo cards may be used in lieu of legal tender. Cash in with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 buy-in credit at B&G Bingo in Salem, in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Salem, Marion, and Polk counties. This Groupon is not valid for late-night sessions on Friday and Saturday nights.
For 31 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Salem, Marion, and Polk counties have fueled charitable efforts with funds harvested by beneficent big-winners at B&G Bingo. The bingo house offers multiprogressive games with escalating jackpots and colorful markers that fuel spontaneous connect-the-dot duels. Paper packs of bingo cards buy in between $5 and $10, and other games, such as sizzlers, bonanza, blackout, and the rhythmic spinoff game ringo, cost a little extra. Fourteen sessions are gleefully strewn throughout the week, providing plenty of opportunities for spelling-induced celebration.
B&G Bingo recently moved to a new facility, which features a full-service deli and lottery station where players may further push, pull, and braid their luck with scratch-off tickets. The game room, like an unused bingo card, is clean, open, and convivial. Electronic bingo packages are also available, ranging from a $21 to a $39 minimum.
