This is a liquidation bingo game that seems to be fixed so no one can win but they sure will continue to take your money. It is on a points system where you pay to make a play and you pull a floating ping pong ball from a basket that has a simple shop vacuum pushing the balls up and rotating them. You start at 5 dollars per play and get balls with numbers on them and they take that number to a chart and it tells you what you got. You may get 20 points towards the 100 or got a green number that doesnt get you anything or a black number that gets you a small prize that is worth less than 30 bucks then there is the bonus numbers there are three of them which they tell you never come up and why they dont tell you this part of the game until you get one of them.
When you get a bonus the prize doubles and the amount to play doubles also. So from 5 dollars per play an done prize at the end to 20 per play and two prizes and on and on we played to 320 per play and 15 prizes and the couple next to us was at 600 dollars per play and 30 prizes. This is 30 large screen tvs if you wish that have a value of 1375.00 at walmart so it seems to be worth while If you have an investment of 3000.00 dollars and can win a total value of over 30k in prizes. So on that saturday I was at 15 prizes the couple next to us was at 30 prizes and one other group of
young kids was at 10 prizes. He is the weird part all of us were at 99 points one point from winning the game and we all played over 1000 dollars to achieve this and not a single one of us could manage to break the 100 point mark. We would get a minus 5 points and then 1 point or 2 points and then double again and then it is 600 per play and 30 prizes
and it keeps going and going and yet no one can break 100 points and win????? but yet it was easy to reach 99 points. I
was at 99 points with a total investment of 800 dollars and that shows how the game can be played when not tampered with but once you get close they some how can control it whether it is with metal and magnets and that is what it seems to be. when I held the pole in the basket it seemed that certain balls clung to the cup and others would hit and bounce off of it. I would get then same exact number say the 11 twice in a row when there are 200 balls spinning around in the basket and that 11 is a double so you double the money to play so it gets to where you just cannot afford to keep playing and you walk with nothing.
Between us all we spent over 6000 dollars and no one could get that winning ball to win and we all would get the same exact numbers on that brings you down 5 points then get a point here and a point there maybe win a 25 dollar prize to keep you going but not one person took home the big one. I threatened them with turning them in and I was asked what could they do to make me go away and when I said give me the 15 prizes or my 3500 back I was told there was no way I spent that much and they wouldnt settle at that much. So when I walked out another vendor came up to me and he runs a shop across from the game that sells perfume and he said in the two months he has worked there he has seen multiple people reach 98 or 99 points and has not seen one big winner take home a big prize. I asked them if they had any big winners this weekend and they said two peole took home multiple prizes one took 15 and one took 10 but yet the people that work around them told me no one has ever won the game.
I have spent 3500 bucks at something that is not fair. I asked for a gambling license and was told it isnt gambling so I asked for just a business license number and they said they dont have to carry one even thought they are making money???? Lots of stuff not right here with this game that is stealing lots of peoples money with no chance of ever getting the big prizes they promise. The name and phone number is all I could get from the susposed manager that was running the booth with 3 other men but I think they are all cons that are in on the whole scam. I want them shut down.
I want them in jail and want proof of what they are doing so I can sue them for the money they took from me and my wife. If you investigate them I am sure you will get the answers I look for and that they are not even a business paying any type of taxes. I also need to know who else to contact and send this story to if possible to make sure all parties
that need to hear this do. I have mailed this to multiple parties hoping that someone will investigate it and stop them from doing this to others. I have also gone to the attorney general and first coast news of jax. they are setup at 9400-101 atlantic blvd jax fl 32225.
I bet he doesnt even pay taxes on this money he earns off the game. I just hope someone shuts him down.
