This post is the first for Mindanaoan’s “Things To Do [in a particular Mindanao city or Mindanao province]” series. Naturally, as a certified Dabawenya, the first entry is about my beloved hometown 🙂 So here’s one thing you can do in Davao City on a Sunday – play bingo and help others at the same time!
The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) – Davao branch is regularly hosting a Charity Bingo event every Sunday, 1-4PM at the Entertainment Area of Casino Filipino – Grand Regal Hotel, Lanang, Davao City. Each ticket only costs P300.00 (roughly US$8.00) and that entitles you to 4 bingo cards which you can use for ten (10) games (you also have the option to buy extra cards from the game marshals around the area). There are also special games like the Super 6 Bingo, Super 8 Bingo and Charity Bingo game. You can purchase your bingo cards for those special games from the game marshals (you can’t miss them, they all wear striking yellow vests)
Prizes start at P3,000. The largest prize pot starts at P100,000 (P75,000 for the Large Frame pattern). Not a P300.00 investment if you win P100,000, right?
What’s also cool about this regular Sunday afternoon bingo session at PAGCOR Davao City is that there’s a beneficiary (or two). So this charity bingo event is not only a fun way to spend your Sunday but also a way for you to help others.
If you’re interested to purchase tickets, you may call PAGCOR Davao at (082) 2343997 or 2343998.
Have fun and good luck! 🙂
