  • How It Works

    Here's How it Works

    There are 13 games each night: 4 games at $200, 4 games at $300, 4 games at $500 and 1 game with a $1,000 prize. A total of over $5,000 - $10,000 will be won each week in our prize board. The numbers will be called 10 seconds apart and there will be a flashboard present onscreen throughout each game.

    The information on each TV Bingo card is stored by computer including the serial number, game pattern and page color. Viewers will be notified when it is determined there is a possible bingo. The Bingo Caller will wait up to 60 seconds for the potential winner to phone in before the next number is called.

  • How to Play

    The Access Communications Children's Fund TV Bingo is only available to viewers of Access7. You must be at least 16 years old to purchase bingo cards or claim an Access7 TV Bingo prize. The Bingo line is 565-5381 or toll free at 1-877-889-8860.

    How to Play

    • All cards must be marked with a bingo dabber.
    • Cover the square in the middle of your card, marked 'FREE'.
    • Each time a letter and number is called; cover the square on your card that corresponds to both such letter and number.
    • The Ball (number) is not official until the caller has completely called the entire number. Ball supersedes any caller or mechanical error.
    • You have achieved 'Bingo' when you cover the same pattern as called (i.e., the full card or any two lines), and have the last number called in your bingo pattern.
    • Player has 60 seconds to call in and confirm their bingo.
    • Once the winning game card(s) is validated, the game is closed and no more bingos will be accepted and the TV Bingo will resume to the next consecutive game or card.

    After You Win

    • Each winner must supply the verification number and serial number of their winning card; and their name, address and phone number.
    • All winners will be paid by cheque. The cheque is made out to the individual verifying the bingo. Proper identification is required prior to payment.
    • The winning card (entire 6-up page) must be checked by an official verifier before payment of winnings is made. THE SERIAL NUMBER AND SERIES NUMBER MUST MATCH THE NUMBERS DISTRIBUTED THAT WEEK OF TV BINGO.
    • In the event of multiple winners for the same prize, the cash value of the prize will be divided equally among the multiple winners. (For example, if there are two winners of a $500 game, each will receive $250). Minimum win is $40.

    All unclaimed cash prizes will be added to the growing Jackpot portion of the TV Bingo.

    All card sales are final and absolutely no refunds are allowed except at the discretion of an authorized Access Communications Children's Fund TV Bingo representative.
