Prior to my Dad passing,my folks wintered in Arizona for 22 years, and I paid at least one visit every year. Bingo at the casino was a regular thing for them, but it wasn't this loud, bass thumping, party blasphemy. They took their bingo seriously, including the prizes. Every game prize was $1,199(the max amount before taxes had to be taken out), and the progressive game even more. I was there one night when a woman won the progressive game and took home over $30,000. Now THAT'S bingo.
