You will need a one device to log into the “Zoom room,” which will allow you to video chat with your neighbors, as well as a smartphone or tablet to access your bingo card, sorry only one card per person. Bingo winners will receive fun prizes!
Space is limited to the first 65 people to register for a bingo card, so please e-mail email@example.com with the following information: name, address and how many adults will be playing in your household. Once your registration has been received, you will receive a personal link to access the Jukebox Bingo event.
