About the game
What are the July and August prizes?
Letter “T” Bingo: The winner of the drawing will receive $200. To win this category, the card’s numbers must be filled in across the top and down the middle. When those numbers are filled in, it forms the letter “T” (see the accompanying image).
Letter “W” Bingo: The winner of the drawing will receive $300. To win this category, all the numbers under letter “B” and letter “O” must be filled in. Additionally, the fourth number beneath letter “I” and the fourth number beneath letter “G” must be filled in.
If that seems confusing, a quick look at the photo with this story will clear it up. When those numbers are filled in, it forms the letter W on the card.
