For the first bingo on Oct. 1, the Starburst progressive raffle is over $451. Jackpot is $500, if you get coverall in 54 numbers or less.

If there are more than 120 or more bingo players, the payout for the $30 regular games will be $40. For only $5, you can play six cards and have an evening of fun and socializing.
