Bingo – Electronic

Playing Electronic Bingo

E-Bingo is the electronic version of Regular Dabber Bingo. Electronic Bingo is offered on electronic terminals (Gecko) with touch screens making it easy to play – and to win. The cards automatically dab themselves allowing the customers to socialize during their event. Players still have the option to play paper bingo or both. The same Bingo Game is played on Paper and Electronic.

Gecko Packages are available in two different tiers at all sessions except for the Regular Carnival Sessions (Fri – Sun Mornings and Mon-Wed Late Nite Sessions):  Gecko Tier 1 Package – includes a 6 Strip Regular Book and a 3 Strip Special Book; Gecko Tier 2 Package – includes a 12 Strip Regular Book and a 6 Strip Special Book.  (Separate purchases are required for Turbo Challenge, Lightning Bingo and Double Action Games.)  Gecko Packages save customers money – approximately $20 cheaper to play Electronic than paper for the same package listed above.

Please note that the Gecko Packages only include Regular and Special Games.  Separate purchases are required for Twoonie Pot, Lightning Bingo, Turbo Challenge, Double Action Games and Upik 8.

POD Games and Tap N’ Play Games are also available to be played on the Gecko Terminals.  After logging in, press the [POD Games] button.
