Kinsmen Jackpot Bingo continues this Saturday (January 18, 2020) with an estimated jackpot prize of $500,000+ (50 numbers or less). With that type of prize on the line it’s no secret that tickets have become a hot commodity and extremely difficult to get your hands on. According to their Facebook page sales to retailers have jumped from 300 orders for the December 28th game to 2500+ orders for the January 18th game.
For many local retailers they sell out as soon as the tickets arrive at their door. Ticket sales were so brisk for this week’s draw that Jiffy Food & Video had to place an order for additional tickets when their first order (250 tickets) sold out in less than 30 minutes. Owner Dave Lindenberg tells bdnmb.ca that he is expecting a second batch of tickets to arrive later today or tomorrow. He went on to say that in the 20 years he has been selling the tickets he has never seen anything like this.
Shopper’s Drug Mart, Superstore Lotto Kiosk, Walmart Lotto Kiosk, and Heritage Co-Op are among the other retailers in Brandon listed as selling the tickets.
Kinsmen Jackpot Bingo airs a LIVE broadcast every Saturday night at 5:30 pm on CTV where it has been airing for the past 40 years.
