In the last few years, Bingo has become a popular casino game, mostly at local casino resorts such as Stations, Coasts, Arizona Charlie’s, Jerry’s Nugget, Silver Nugget and Sam’s Town, to name a few.

The newest phenomenon to lure players to the bingo hall is the progressive jackpot.

A few bingo halls feature a huge jackpot for a coverall game. Progressive games offer a high starting jackpot and continue to increase until they are won.

The game is normally a coverall and needs to be hit within a certain number, usually starting around 46 to 48 numbers or less, to win the jackpot.

If the jackpot isn’t hit within a particular week, the number goes up by one, for example to 49 numbers or less to win it the following week. They usually continue to add one number each week until someone snags the big prize.
