I love playing bingo. I'm also use to playing at a faster pace. With that being said I think we should be able to play four cards or even two for every game would be okay with me.

Stephanie,

Thank You for your input...I appreciate you posting this.

Let me start by telling you why we run things the way we do.

We are a small business with very little working capital unlike a casino. We are unable to charge people to play bingo......because that is gambling and illegal.

We have just a few ways that we make money as a small business.....one is by OPC Memberships, and the Other is by donations. At this point (as of 2/5/21) we are barely profiting and in some cases breaking even...and if I counted all the time I put into this it would definitely be a loss. I love doing it and it has been growing....but as of late....very slow.

Why am I telling you this?

Because if I started letting everyone play extra cards on every game and event.....we would end up with a lot more winners! That wouldn't be a bad thing...except we would lose a lot more money and it wouldn't take long before we would have to shut it down.

You might be saying to yourself......well you only give away B-Wallet Money on games 1-3....so what's the big deal if you have more winners? - The truth is......is that most players end up paying for or renewing their OPC Membership with B-Wallet Funds! That means that one of our original streams of income has all but almost disappeared!

We do offer extra ways to play more cards.....

  • OPC Members - Can play 2 pages on Tuesdays (Twofer Tuesdays)
  • Donations - Donate to play extra pages - see our Donation Page
  • 5+ Game Events  - you are able to play extra cards on Blackout

 

Why do we need to make money? - This is a small business. Their are operating costs and lots of work behind the scenes that we do. Expenses for Online Bingo are currently between $350-$500/month (not including work time). This is why Donations are so important.

 

Between Bar Bingo and Online Bingo I currently spend over 50 hours a week working on everything from hosting events to all the backend work (payments, emails, website, advertising/marketing, and bingo cards). I hope that this post gives everyone a little better understanding of why we run Bingo the way we do.

Also - We cannot speed up bingo online....because there are too many factors that prevent bingo from being run properly. We will add a forum topic about this in the near future.

Sorry that this was a long post....but I saw this as an opportunity to enlighten players about what we do.

Thank You Again Stephanie for your support.
