What are pennybirds – mini games – penny early birds?Melanie Tawil
Almost all of our San Antonio halls are currently playing Pennybirds with the exception of our Ingram Late Night Bingo and Bandera Late Night Bingo halls. Pennybirds may be referred to as mini games, early penny birds, penny earlies or perhaps even something else. Currently, in Corpus Christi, they are being played at Bingo Land Day Bingo, Bingo Land Evening Bingo and Las Vegas Bingo. Both Seguin Day and Night play Pennybirds. Rosenberg Night Bingo also plays the Pennybirds, as do our Austin halls (Balcones Bingo only plays Pennybirds Saturdays & Sundays).
What are pennybirds?
Pennybirds are quick bingo games that are played one hour before the first session starts. One paper will cost you five cents, but there are two rules:
- First, you must buy into the bingo game of the day to play. Paper or computer, it does not matter.
- Second, you must buy at least 25 cents worth of pennybirds at a time.
Once these two rules are satisfied, you can purchase as many pennybirds as you like. Games are played for 30 minutes and we try to play as many as we can!
What can I win playing pennybirds?
Computers, computers, computers gallore!! A winner will ALWAYS win a computer playing pennybirds. However, not all computers are created equal.
One lucky winner will win a 40-dollar computer. It will work for two sessions and it will be fully loaded with 26 double play optionals for each session. If we get more winnners in this game, we will give them regular computers and play again to get only one winner.
The second lucky winner will be winning 2x 22-dollar computers. They will work for 2 sessions, as well, but since we have two computers, this prize may be split between two winners. If somehow we have more than two winners, they will all get regular computers and we will play again.
The third lucky winner will be winning 2x 6-dollar computers. They will work for 2 sessions, but they will not have any optionals.
Have you played our pennybirds yet? Do you like the extra computers it gives you? Perhaps you have a different name for this type of game. Leave us a comment, we would love to hear from you!
