Lady Luck Rewards Women at South African Bingo Halls

innersouthafrican25062015In the words of Las Vegas legend Frank Sinatra, “Luck be a lady tonight.” That classic tune must have been the soundtrack during the recent Win-a-Merc drawings held at four Bingo Royale outlets in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The Bingo Royale Jeffrey’s Bay was packed with players with hopes and dreams filled with C-Class Mercedes-Benz automobiles, as the venue was set to draw its first car giveaway since opening nearly three months ago. In this drawing, as well as three others, lucky ladies came out on top with a new set of keys for the grand prize.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a popular line of compact executive cars originally introduced in 1993. The automobile is available with a collection of unique features and has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of approximately $38,400. For these four winners, it represents an extremely generous introduction to Bingo Royale’s growing presence throughout South Africa.

These results built on the big winnings in recent months at the country’s collection of Bingo Royale outlets. Earlier this quarter, players claimed two of the biggest jackpots in the history of South African bingo. In April, a player hit the progressive jackpot in Cleary Park, winning over $12,300 from a bingo machine. In May, a second player followed up on the trend by claiming a second progressive jackpot for just shy of $12,000 in winnings.

“We are delighted to see the jackpots paying out because our goal is to give every visitor to a Bingo Royale or Ritz Bingo outlet a winning experience,” Yolande Manuel, director of Bingo Royale, stated in a news release. “We are excited to announce that a new car will now be given away every two months.

Big giveaways are nothing new for the bingo industry, which has utilized this clever tactic to catch the attention of bingo fanatics for decades. Whether for a chance to meet a popular celebrity, a new car or some other prize, nothing sets the mood for a few games of bingo quite like the allure of a random drawing. For bingo halls, these promotions can provide big returns as players keep coming back for a chance at a huge jackpot win. With four winners cruising around in brand new Mercedes, there’s little doubt that Bingo Royale will be experiencing substantial increases in traffic in the months to come.

With all that in mind, it’s a great time to get out and enjoy the massive popularity of bingo for yourself. Keep an eye out for similar promotions in your area, and you may be on your way to an amazing prize of your very own. Whether you get the opportunity to lay claim to a brand new luxury car or simply take advantage of the social benefits of a classic game, bingo halls have plenty to offer players. The growing popularity of bingo in a variety of settings is just more evidence that when it comes to number-based games with cards, markers and a person with a microphone, there’s really only one correct choice.
