Big Bingo winnings
Kathy Halvorson took over as manager at the Rugby Eagles Club in November, and the bingo pots just grew and grew.
Fortunes changed for three lucky winners on Monday. After months of no one snagging the blackout prizes, the Eagles had to dish out more than $8,000.
“In the five months I’ve been here only two bingos have gone out and never two on one night, so the odds of all three of them going out on one night is rare,” Halvorson said.
She joked that the caller is still employed.
“It was busy, busy, busy, even for the last month,” Halvorson said. “I would have an extra person on because the place would fill up.”
The winners preferred to not have their names printed.
The 6:30 p.m. game was the hot one. In order to win the blackout, a player’s card had to be completed within the first 55 numbers called. The winner took home $5,625.
The other two winners came in a previous game and in the final game of the evening, with each taking home about $1,200.
The Eagles host four games each night Monday through Friday. Pots for the first two games start at $300 and pots for the next two games start at $1,000.
