Jingle Bingo FAQ

Jingle Bingo 2015 Artwork - SliderQ: How do I play?

A: Get your Jin­gle Bingo card here.  The card is good for the week. The start time for each day is printed on the card. Once we say “Jin­gle Bingo starts now,” begin cross­ing off song titles when we play them. Cross off five songs in a row ver­ti­cally, hor­i­zon­tally or diag­o­nally and be the first caller to win.

Q: What is your phone num­ber?
A: 208–525-9797.

Q: What do I win?
A: Each day we’re giv­ing away a $100 fam­ily din­ner to Out­back Steak­house. Each daily win­ner goes into the draw­ing for the grand prize — a $1,500 pair of Rhythm Of Love dia­mond ear­rings from Alpine Jewelers.

Q: How often can I win?
A: To give every­one a fair shot, we ask you to wait 30 days after win­ning a con­test to play again.

Q: When does each day’s game start?
A: Each day’s game time is on the card. We’ll also say “Jin­gle Bingo starts now.”

Q: When does each day’s game end?
A: When we play five song titles in a row ver­ti­cally, hor­i­zon­tally or diag­o­nally on the Jin­gle Bingo card.

Q: Is every­one play­ing from the same card?
A: Yes. Unlike reg­u­lar bingo, every­one has the same card. You’re play­ing with all of East Idaho to be the first caller when the final Jin­gle Bingo song plays.

Q: When exactly do you take the win­ning caller?
A: We open the phone lines and take the first caller at a ran­dom point after the win­ning song begins.

Q: Why can’t I get through? Why are your lines some­times busy?
A: Lots of peo­ple play this game with us. Every day some­one wins. If you haven’t had any luck yet, keep trying!

Q: What if I can’t print my card?
A: Unfor­tu­nately, we’re not a lot of help on this one. We’d need to know your com­puter type, oper­at­ing sys­tem, printer, and browser. And then we’d prob­a­bly just say, “Uh… is your printer turned on?”

Q: How awe­some is that grand prize?
A: Totally awe­some. Thank you Alpine Jewelers!
