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.
[Sticky] Bingo cards
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.
