How much does it cost?

The minimum buy-in (purchase) is 2 regular game packets & 1 blackout pack for $11-$14; *sessions may vary.  That's 14 regular bingo games and 4-5* blackout games. (*sessions vary.)

Who may play Bingo?
Adults at least 18 years old (12 with parent, see all details). Anyone UNDER 12 years old is NOT ALLOWED in the hall.  Everyone must provide valid photo identification showing proof of age. More info here.

Do I have to play the whole session?
No, but you will be missing out on opportunities to win if you quit early. You are allowed give your paper cards to another player who is registered in the session. PhD credits may only be transferred to another player in the session who is not using a PhD machine. If you give your cards/credits away the new player assumes ownership of the cards and any winnings.

Are daubers required for paper-card Bingo?
No, you are welcome to mark your numbers in other ways. Some players use crayons, pens and even lipstick. The only rule says that numbers used to win a bingo game cannot be altered or covered up so that its authenticity is in doubt.

How do I get a Player's Club Card to receive offers and discounts?
You must apply for a card in person at Sunset Bingo.

How do I re-join the Player's Club Card email list?
If you had a Player's Club Card before and you opt'ed out of the email newsletter, you may re-sign up HERE. If you have never had a card, you must apply for one in person at Sunset Bingo.

May I bring my own food and drinks?
Yes, you are allowed to bring in your own food, snacks and NON-ALCOHOLIC beverages to enjoy. Please do not bring alcohol of any kind into the facility or you may be asked to leave without any refunds.

What about "Parties" or "Special Events?"
Sure, we love to see celebrations at Sunset Bingo! You are welcome to take over a table (or section of tables), decorate and bring in a cake and refreshments. Your group will have a great time and perhaps win a few Bingos! Celebrations must be organized by patrons; we don’t have an event-planner. There are usually many free spots and entire tables available. Contact us if you have a large group (over 20) or have any questions.

Have another question?
Our staff is always glad to help. Or ask someone sitting nearby; bingo players are some of the friendliest people around!


Today, 48 states (and more than 100 Native American reservations) offer legal bingo on some scale.

Some games are small enough to fit in a church basement, others can pack an 1,800-seat hall!
