The casino in Milwaukee, which started as a bingo hall, had a record 290 bingos in one game this week.

The pattern was the letter I, either up and down (3 on top and bottom and all the Ns) or sideways (3 Bs and Os with the middle).

It took 43 calls for the first G ball to be called, resulting in mass winners. Each person got $25.

Wow. Iíve won with about 50 people before.
I donít remember how many winners there were, but they called 5 Iís and 7 Nís before calling a G for a small X, L, or T around the free space.

I've been in similar situations where most people were waiting on a particular letter, but the most winners I've ever seen at once is around 25.

I show the probability of going 44 calls and avoiding any one letter (not just G) is 1 in 1,517,276. Can anyone confirm or deny?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Would anyone pay extra for each card to ensure a non-split bingo? Call it insurance so you would always receive full pay if you bingo.

I had a patent-pending on such a concept, but got sick of paying the fees, so let it lapse. Happy to sell the math to anybody who wants to pursue it.
