The first year of bingo is a big deal for people in Canada, who get a chance to win a free ticket to the next round.
But the second year of the bingo calendar is the big draw.
“It’s like having a real, real job,” says Daniel, who has been bingoing for two years.
Daniel’s job is as a sales manager for a travel agency.
He’s been in business since he was five years old, and his company’s motto is “get paid, get paid, make money.”
He says he’s had a lot of opportunities to win bingo tickets since he started.
“I’ve won more than a hundred times,” he says.
“You could say that my career has been a big success.”
And he doesn’t take it for granted.
“My life is in this game,” he said.
Daniel says his success in the bingoes was due to his luck.
“If I’ve been lucky, I’ll still be lucky.
That’s the only way to find out.”
He said he was lucky enough to win the first bingo bingo prize he got.
“The money is nice, but I also know that it doesn’t last,” he added.
And he says he wasn’t the only one who got lucky.
“There were lots of people out there who didn’t make it.”
And the bingers say the game is not for everyone.
“Some people are just not into it,” says Dan.
“They are not into winning,” says Danielle.
“Because they’re not in the mood to win.”
Daniel says he was in the minority of people who didn.
“People like me,” he continued.
“For them, it’s not the money.”
“Money is not important,” she said.
“But you have to enjoy the moment, and that’s what we do here at Bingo City.”
