Following on from the recent posts about big money Bingo prize share disputes, I thought I’d take action myself in an attempt to help UK Bingo players avoid these disputes in future. In the last post I mentioned that maybe the clubs could provide a form that people can could use to formalise the agreement they might make on sharing prizes. I’m not sure if it’s something that clubs would bother doing or find the time to sort out, so, I thought I would do it instead.
I’d like to introduce to you the Playing Bingo Bingo Player’s Prize Share Agreement. You can download the agreement here. It’s in Word doc format, but don’t worry if you don’t have Word – you can get the free office software Open Office here – it opens Microsoft files fine (I prefer it and use it myself.)
Once you’ve downloaded the file, save it to your hard drive and print off a copy as you need it. Take it along to your club, and get your Bingo friends you normally share with to sign it. Make a copy for each of them – then if you’re lucky enough to strike it rich on one of those games, there can be no misunderstanding as to who is entitled to a share.
