Bingo players flocked from Ohio to Windsor the World Series of Bingo. On Wednesday, over 600 players took part in Tecumseh’s Classic Bingo III hoping for their piece of the $100,000 in prizes.

In order to qualify players had to win a round of bingo at one of four bingo halls run by the Community Gaming and Entertainment Group in Windsor-Essex.

The qualification period was from August through November 25, 2012. Games cost just $1 to play.

“Everything was free to all who qualified,” said CGEG Director of Operations Marty Carroll. “We didn’t give extra cards to even the playing field. Some people can only play four cards, others can play a lot more at the same time. It made things fair and more fun for everybody,”

Seats to this event were highly sought after and winning one of the qualification games wasn’t the only way to score a spot says CGEG President and CEO Tony Rosa.

“People were selling or offering to buy tickets with the a pledge to share 10 per cent of their winnings on Kijijii and eBay,” he said. “But it’s all about having a good time. We started collecting for Sparky’s Toy Drive and area food banks this year as well.”
