That must be a first indeed. Winning a jackpot in bingo and getting less than your buy in A 5 USD buy in by the way which seem quite a big for one card. But at the end the players got something back since they awarded everyone with 25 USD. After that no one would mind being in the same situation again
Well, they messed up badly the algorythm with the electronic cards for sure. It is possible but not really probable and I don't know what would have happen if they do this multiple times a row making bingo night into a nightmare for hundreds of old people

A situation too complicated for the winners but that casino was generous and offered more money. I've seen in movies how old people played bingo but i do not know how it works. Probably the same as lottery game, but here you choose fewer numbers. The situation is on the reverse and this time won a lot of players.
