Bethel University students will donate time and effort to play Bingo for a good cause while the Live Bingo Network faces scrutiny regarding the terms of money withdrawal from online Bingo accounts. In recent Bingo news, a group of Bethel University students played Bingo at the Minnesota State Fair. The group wanted to do something noble and with the help of the Salvation Army a unique twist on Bingo is devised. Another twist of Bingo leads to more recent news, that of the Live Bingo Network’s misleading ‘terms and conditions’ of online accounts and the rules for withdrawing money from those accounts.
Bethel Students Give Bingo a Good Name!
In Minnesota, a group of approximately 100 students will be donating their time to play a very unique style of Bingo. The students wanted to make a contribution to the community and do something ‘good’. The group approached spokesperson Annette Bauer of the Salvation Army for suggestions as to what they might do to help others and do ‘good’. Bauer said that when the unique Bingo game at the Minnesota State Fair was suggested, the students were eager to participate. They will attend the fair and fill in their Bingo grid with good deeds.
Each time they complete a ‘good deed’ they will mark off a square. The deeds will include a vast range of helpful actions such as offering to push a wheelchair for someone, handing bottled water to fair patrons, taking out trash for fair staff, answering questions, giving assistance to a Mom in need of help maneuvering a baby-stroller. This is the first year for the new and unique Bingo for Good and the students will be readily identified by the matching Salvation Army T-shirts that will all be wearing. It is a great way for the students to contribute to the community and ‘pay it forward’. ‘Paying’ it forward brings another Bingo topic to mind….that of Bingo Misunderstood.
In other Bingo news – some misunderstood terms and conditions have online players at the Live Bingo Network questioning the rules. Not the Bingo rules, but the rules about accessing money from individual accounts. Some sites on the Live Bingo Network made recent changes outlining how players may now withdraw Bingo winnings prior to ever making any deposits. The new withdrawal terms quoted from the Scrummy Bingo site are contradictory, leading to confusion and misunderstandings as to the actual process. One rule states that players must have an account funded with £25 before they may withdraw any money.
Two other rules, however, say otherwise. One states that non-funded accounts can be used for play – win and withdraw up to £30 and the other says that players may withdraw up to a maximum of £30 from winnings derived from the promotional bonus bucks or free money. The contradictory rules are quite misleading. The Live Bingo Network sites do offer considerably higher welcome bonuses with ‘no deposit required’ giving players money to play and win the minimum withdrawal amount without ever making any deposits. There is only one other online network of Bingo brands that allow players to withdraw money from their account without ever making any actual deposits. The Better Bingo Network of sites offers £1 free for online play. As a player wins they may accumulate the monies won and may withdraw funds when the balance reaches £50.
