Coastal Community Radio Bingo Increases our Lucky Number Jar
Hi Coastal Radio Bingo Players! Effective this week, you will notice there is a price increase in our booklets. The new cost of booklets is $10. Now, before anyone is misinformed or hears rumours, we want to set the record straight and explain why we had to increase our booklets. There are two main reasons for the $2 increase. First, we are now doubling the lucky number jar. That’s right, instead of $1 from every booklet sold, we are now putting $2 from every booklet sold into the lucky number jar each week. This means the lucky number jar will grow twice as fast, leading to a bigger and better prize in the lucky number jar each week. Second, we haven’t had a price increase in our booklets since 2012 but the paper costs have increased an average of 25% since then. The other dollar of the increase will help offset that cost. it doesn’t cover it all, but it will help. We decided if we were to increase the price of booklets, we wanted to increase the winnings, so the best and quickest way to do that was to double the amount we put into the lucky number jar. Since we have 10 games in all, this works out to $1 a game, which we think is still a good deal, but even better with a larger lucky number jar! Thank you for playing Coastal Community Radio Bingo and best of luck with your cards!
