November 1, 2014 — ONTARIO BINGO GAMING CENTRES WELCOME YOU THIS FALL! Tuesday, November 11th is Remembrance Day. With all the activity in Ottawa over the past weeks, never have we been reminded more about the efforts of Canadian Forces and the role of the Legion. We hope you will support the annual Poppy Drive. It’s a small gesture that sends a big message.
BINGO PLAYER MAGAZINE is also happy to celebrate our 12th Anniversary with our November ’14 issue. No doubt, this has been a difficult year for the Bingo industry in Ontario, but we continue to do what we do best — talk about and share great Bingo and Gaming opportunities for Players and new Players. Our website also continues to spread the word and attract visitors from Ontario and around the world. We also are very grateful to have the undeniable support of the Sponsors and charitable groups in Halls that still look for feedback from such amazing people.

We want to thank you, on behalf of the hundreds of Charitable and Not-For-Profit groups who benefit when you play Bingo.

May 20, 2014 — THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE WHILE WE’VE UPDATED OUR WEBSITE! WE’RE PROUD OF THE WORK AND RESULTS AND HOPE YOU ARE, TOO!! Well, the tinkering is done and we’re thrilled with the new website’s look and feel. It’s modern and fresh. It moves. It’s unbelievably easy to navigate. In fact, if you still use a mouse, every bit of information is literally one “click” away. That’s not to say the website is not “touch-friendly”, because it is. It’s built using such a device (just to make sure). The website is also scalable (mostly), which means it will be much more “mobile-friendly”. We’ll test things more over the coming weeks and months.
The individual Hall and Gaming Centre pages are clean and clear, with very useful links (try the “CLICK HERE TO GET DIRECTIONS FROM WHERE YOU ARE”)! We also have links to the Sponsors who benefit from Bingo – everyone’s favourite form of Charitable Gaming!!
Plus, all our monthly magazine content is just a click away — including monthly features, like recipes and puzzles, which may only appear on our website. You’ll find all that under “FEATURES“.
We’re also looking to add some more social networking platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, so that we may facilitate update information quicker and better. You’ll see we’ve already got the icons just on the right side of this page.
It is extremely rare that information we’ve printed in the magazine needs updating or correction, but many Halls use these platforms wisely, to help get your Jackpot information and game information updates out for the next session. Many also use these platforms as great “reminder” systems.
As we mentioned in our last post, some of our historical content is still being converted to our new website layout, the most important information is now current and fresh.
We appreciate everyone’s patience while we’ve been updating. Please remember to update your older Bingo Player bookmarks with our new pages. WELCOME BACK!
May 16, 2014 — While some of our historical content is still being converted to our new website layout, the majority of the information is now current and fresh. We’ve also added the contact details, daily Bingo Schedules (for each location), Google map feature, Google map directions feature and links to the Sponsors (charitable or not-for-profit groups) who benefit when you play Bingo.
May 6, 2014 — We are proud to be re-launching and working on our new, modern website design. It may take some time to rebuild all of our great content (including items posted in the past), so please be patient with us. Bingo Player is (and has always been) very proud to represent and help promote Bingo and E-Gaming Centres in Ontario.
April 30, 2014 — We apologize for updating issues on our website. Technology issues have forced us to completely rebuild our website. However, we are migrating to a better delivery platform and expect to have modern features moving forward. Thank you (especially to our advertisers) for your patience. We hope you like the new site when it launches shortly.
April 1, 2014 — NO JOKING, PLAYING BINGO IS LOTS OF FUN! We are proud to be re-launching and working on our new, modern website design. It may take some time to rebuild all of our great content (including items posted in the past), so please be patient with us. Bingo Player is (and has always been) very proud to represent and help promote Bingo and E-Gaming Centres in Ontario.
March 1, 2014 — PLAYERS FIND LUCK EVERY DAY AT LOCAL ONTARIO BINGO AND GAMING CENTRES! We hope you find your luck this month — or at least the “Luck of the Irish” on St. Patrick’s Day. As any Ontario resident knows, this has been a particularly hard winter and Bingo Centres have had an even more difficult time. We hope, if you can, that you’ll try playing Bingo and discover how much fun the games are. We also hope you’ll tell your friends to try Bingo and visit our Bingo Player Magazine advertisers. Thank you!!
Also, sadly, Variety Trent Bingo in Scarborough will close their doors officially after the last Session on March 31st. After more than 25 years, with some Staff having been at the Hall for decades and more, there will be a lot of “Must-Go” Jackpots to win. Regular daily Sessions will continue until the last Session, so please stop by and say your “goodbyes”.
February 26, 2014 — WE ARE HEARTBROKEN TO ANNOUNCE THE PASSING OF OUR FRIEND, MR. LEN PETERS … Len was a good friend and a good neighbour. Len was just shy of 94. Our condolences to his wife of 68 years, Eva – and to his three sons, Allan, John & Terry, and their families. Len was the oldest, original resident on his peaceful street in Scarborough and we will all miss him very much.
February 1, 2014 — FIND OUT IF YOU LOVE BINGO THIS FEBRUARY! Ontario Bingo Halls and E-Gaming Centres are inviting new Players to check them out. Tell them BINGO PLAYER SENT YOU and you might get a special, “welcome” treat. See the head Session Manager.
January 1, 2014 — HAPPY NEW YEAR, BINGO PLAYERS! We wanted to wish you and yours only the best in 2014. We also wanted to thank each of our Bingo & Gaming Centre advertisers and their many, many Sponsors for your ongoing support of our efforts — even during more difficult times. We hope all our Readers and Web Guests will tell everyone they know that “Bingo is the best”!
