Discounted Pricing ... Let's Make A Deal!

Bingo Video King, our Florida division, is deep into refurbishing used Bingo equipment, offering our customers quite the deal. In addition to a one-year warranty on parts and labor, Jobie Johnson, who salvages the equipment, ensures everything runs ship-shape, including programming the session upon installation, setup and testing of all Bingo-related equipment, such as hall monitors and flashboards, and hands-on training. To learn more, contact Cindy Warfield, cwarfield@vkge.com or (877) 746-6087.


Refurbished Items Ship-Shape

Bingo Equipment Salvaged

You know the saying, “Your ship has come in,” meaning good fortune and riches have arrived, finally reaching your shores. Well, the same can be said – in a sense – for Video King.

The good fortune actually hails from a Miami cruise ship, and its very “bounty,” lodged deep within its hull. But the real find is Jobie Johnson, a systems administrator, who works at Bingo Video King, our Florida division.

Here’s How This Story Unfolds ...

Stowed within steamer trunks were 18 of the ship’s old Bingo consoles. Video King PowerPlay™ 502PLs – to be more precise. But looking like they had been battered at sea, according to Cindy Warfield, manager of Bingo Video King’s Tampa location.                                   

“They were in such deplorable condition,” she said, upon first inspection. But as another saying goes, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure ...” After surveying the equipment, both could see “gold” within the tattered cargo and a potential market for it – lo and behold.

Automatic Play Draw - A Winning Feature!



By John Mowat: "The Latest Development"
Video King Project Manager


Automatic Play Draw -
A Winning New Feature!


It’s exciting for everyone at Video King when we get to release a major version of software with big new features – and our latest release is about as big as they get!

One new addition we hope will “draw” your attention is the Automatic Player Draw. A common sight in Bingo halls is the raffle or prize draw where players put a POS receipt or ticket into a drum, then an employee or volunteer mixes up the drum and pulls out a winner.

It’s a fun opportunity for players, but the downside is logistics: storage and cost of tickets or entry slips, the physical drum sitting out on the Bingo floor, writing player info on each ticket or requiring players to retain proof of entry, physically putting each ticket into the drum, and so on. So we’re taking the hassle away for the operator AND amping up the fun factor for the audience!

Fun Yes, Work No!
Now, our system can store an “electronic” version of your raffle drum. The operator decides how people qualify … then during each POS sale, the system automatically records the player’s “tickets” or chances in the draw and prints their entry numbers at the bottom of their receipt.

Very Important Pig!

As his executive marketing director, “Poppy” is prone to squeal over the VIP line of cards, available through Jeff McIntosh at our Florida Division at jmcintosh@vkge.com. A real porker, “Poppy,” is prone to hog the spotlight a wee bit.

Self-Promotion Second Nature!

Marketing Director ‘Hogs’ Spotlight

For years, Jeff McIntosh has been printing “VIP” Cards, as an adjunct to his business. In other words, customized loyalty cards, the shape and size of credit cards, used to score points for various businesses. To much success, McIntosh, general manager of Bingo Video King Florida – a division of Video King – has printed countless of these laminated “Very Important Player” Cards, to help reward customers for their patronage.

Yet, lately, there’s been a bit of a kerfuffle ... in terms of staffing that is. Although she’s technically not one to “hog” the spotlight, “Poppy,” his new executive director of marketing, has had rather an “a cute” case, seemingly suffering from delusions of grandeur. But, it’s not entirely her fault. One could blame it on her upbringing – or rather genes. Certain traits do run strong among family members ...

You see Poppy, he said, is a pig – but in the truest sense of the word. A micro-mini pig – to be exact. So, coupled with her somewhat boorish behavior, it’s small wonder, pint-sized “Poppy” thinks VIP stands for “Very Important Pig” Cards, he said, clearly defending her best-bow-to-me behavior.

El Dorado Hands-Free Console Best Pick!
Hands-Free Bingo Console Best Prospect!
El Dorado PL ‘Gold’ Standard


The El Dorado PL,™ a name that evokes tales of legendary riches, may be the best “pick” of any hands-free Bingo console around ... Just ask any Bingo operator, worth his weight in gold. Much like the miners of yore, Video King knows true value – when it comes to Bingo – and knows when it has struck gold.

An alternative to the Corona Integra II,™ Video King’s new El Dorado PL offers the same integrity of a hands-free system, but a more compact, high-speed console – all at a reduced price. Much like the precious metal, this ultra-modern console, designed with a plexiglass-encased ball chamber, would be a valuable asset to any Bingo venue.
