KinsmenTV Bingo is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023. To celebrate this event, the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall is introducing a progressive jackpot.
“Since 2000 proceeds from our TV Bingo have enabled the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall to donate over $2.2 million dollars to over 120 local community organizations. Among our priorities are relief of poverty (we contribute to all the local food banks), health (we are proud supporters of the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation, and St. Josephs among others), and education (we donate bursaries to all the high schools in SD&G),” explains Kinsmen President, Claude Legault.
100% of the TVBingo proceeds are given back to the community. In addition to that, the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall hands out about $107,000 each year in prizes to Bingo players.
The progressive jackpot will apply to the full card games in Regular and Special bingos. This is an additional prize awarded to any player that has a Bingo in 50 numbers or less. For example, if a player has a bingo in 50 numbers or less for a Special game, that player would win $2,000 plus whatever the jackpot is at that time. The jackpot starts at $500 and an additional $100 is added per week until it is won, or the jackpot reaches $2,000 at which time it will be awarded on that evening to the full card winner regardless of the number of numbers called.
Once it is won the progressive jackpot starts again at $500 and will add another $100 per week until it is won or reaches $2,000.
