Quick Rules With Screenshots
|To win in the Bingo Zone, you must match the pattern indicated and then click the "Bingo" button. In the example here, the pattern is a diamond shape. The pattern you need to match is printed on each of your bingo cards (the winning pattern is a light blue color; not the white color).|
|You can daub any square outside of the pattern -- for example, to claim a Gold ball for bonus GV Rewards. (What are GV Rewards?) Daubing outside the pattern has no negative repercussions; when you try to claim a bingo win, our system only checks to verify that you daubed the balls that matched the stated pattern.|
|At the start of each round, you have the chance to pick three bonus balls for a special chat game. If you enter the current game late, you won't be able to pick bonus balls for that game. However, you will before the next game begins.|
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW AND IN QUEBEC.
How to Enter and Play
To enter the Promotion, log on to Gamesville at http://www.gamesville.com and follow the directions set forth in the registration area. You will be asked to provide your name, address, email address, and date of birth and other information. Once you have completed the online registration process, you can play any Gamesville Game. After you have registered as a Gamesville Member, to play any Gamesville Game visit http://www.gamesville.com, sign-in and click on your selection.
The Bingo Zone includes an optional chat game, "Dickie's Bonus Balls", that can be played alongside the main game.
The Gold balls represent chances to win additional GV Rewards. If you daub numbers on your cards that match the gold bingo balls, you'll win bonus GV Rewards. NOTE: The numbers can appear in the stated pattern or outside the stated pattern.
No. If I daub outside the pattern (for example, to claim a Gold ball), you will not jeopardize your win.
Our system only checks to verify that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern, regardless of whether they're gold or not.
To win, what matters is that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern and click "Bingo" before the game ends.
Gamesville requires a constant connection between your computer and our servers. This is because the game on your computer is constantly "talking" with our servers, and vice versa, communicating information about GV Rewards, chat messages, balls called, and so on.
If anything interferes with that connection--for example, if your Internet Service Provider goes down for maintenance or experiences a network "hiccup"--you will not receive the latest ball called on your computer, even while others do on theirs. When the network interference on your end clears up, all the balls that have stacked up in those few seconds will come racing down toward you, making it seem like our bingo caller, Dickie, is suddenly on speed.
Your odds of winning a game are not diminished if you enter the game after it has already started.
The Zone does not let you fall behind, regardless of when you enter a game in progress because, when you enter a game, you are sent all the bingo balls you have missed since you last received one. So while you will need to catch up for a moment or two if you enter mid-game, you should quickly get right into the thick of things on an equal basis with everyone else playing that game.
(Of course, there are exceptions: For example, if you enter a game when virtually all balls have already been called -- meaning there are a scant few moments left in the game -- then the few moments it may take you to get caught up may keep you on the sidelines while players who have been in the game all along pounce on the one or two balls they need to win!)
