At Wichita By E.B., we love our bingo. While we mostly attend Bingo Casino (as touched upon here), we had the urge one evening to attend a midnight bingo session. At Bear’s Bingo, they have late night bingo available on Friday and Saturday nights. They also offer bingo regularly during the week but we decided to pop in to experience the fun of bingo underneath the stars……in a bingo hall.

At Bear’s Bingo, they actually start things at 11pm if you want to play the mini’s. Those games run from roughly 11pm to midnight and cost $12 for a pack which includes 16 games. They run relatively fast and the payouts are much smaller than your regular bingo games. Winners received on average $35 per game.
After that session is over, the regular bingo session starts at midnight and ends around 2-2:30am……coffee is available for those who need the assistance to stay awake. Not sure if we stopped by on an off night but the attention and awareness of many of the players…… yikes. Multiple people calling bingo when they didn’t have it and others forgetting to silence their phones.
We were actually a little surprised with how busy midnight bingo was at Bear’s Bingo. Once things got going, there were few empty seats in the house. One of the things we did enjoy about Bear’s Bingo was the number caller. She did a great job of keeping the games going at a good pace. The callers are always key to make sure the games run smoothly and in a timely manner.
If you’re looking for something a little different to do and love yourself some bingo, midnight bingo could be right up your alley.
