Patrick Gives His Thoughts On Bingo
It's time for another video about bingo that's not from the mainstream. In the video below we meet a guy called Patrick Kinney from Delaware. Patrick and his family love playing bingo and make regular trips whenever there's a game on. Due to gambling laws though Patrick has only been allowed to play since turning 18.
It's great to see someone young being passionate about bingo. As Patrick says the game is not just for old people! We quite like the sound of some of the games he describes too - as the prizes are TVs. Mind you they can keep the purses and basket prizes. We wonder whether gambling laws prevent Delaware residents playing for cash?
Frustrated by your bingo caller or being on one to go? Yep Patrick has those issues too and explains some of the annoyances that can hit a player. One thing that was interesting in the clip is that if two people are tied in a game they don't share the prize. Instead they have to play-off for the win. We guess this makes sense for a tangible gift rather than a cash amount which can be easily split.
What we love about this video is that Patrick isn't what you'd expect a typical bingo player to be. Maybe in a couple of years time when work, relationships and other things come along he may not have so much time for the game - but for now it's a way for him and his family to enjoy time together.
We wonder whether there are any more vloggers out there who have shared their love (or lack of it) for bingo? We'll be taking a look but if you have a clip you'd like us to feature do get in touch.
