9.4.1 (D) Super Jackpot Bingo

Super Jackpot Bingo is a separately licensed bingo game that is part of a Regular Bingo event. The Super Jackpot Bingo prize is in addition to the Regular Bingo event prize board.

The Super Jackpot prize is awarded based on a set, increasing number of bingo numbers called at successive Super Jackpot games. A player must complete a full card in order to win the Super Jackpot prize. Fifty bingo numbers are called at the first Super Jackpot game. At each successive game, the number of bingo numbers called increases by one until the Super Jackpot game has been won.

The licensee must award a consolation prize when the Super Jackpot is not won within the designated number of bingo numbers called.

Once a Super Jackpot has been won, a new game begins at the next Super Jackpot game covered by the licence. If the Super Jackpot prize has not been won prior to the end of the licence period the prize will be carried forward to the new licence period.

Licensees should apply for their new licence at least 45 days before the end of their current licence period, to ensure that a new licence can be issued before the current licence expires. If a licensee is conducting the last game in a licence period, and the licensee will not be obtaining another licence, the full Super Jackpot prize must be awarded.

The following policies apply to Super Jackpot Bingo games:

  1. Only the Registrar may issue licences for Super Jackpot games.
  2. All the charitable organizations at a non-pooling bingo hall where four (4) or more events are held within a seven-day period must form a Hall Charities Association (HCA) to administer all the Super Jackpot licences for that bingo hall. The following policies apply to the HCA in respect to the Super Jackpot licences:
  • A principal officer from each participating member organization of the HCA must sign the Super Jackpot licence application;
  • A licensee may not hold a Super Jackpot game in conjunction with a Regular Bingo event made up entirely of Table Board Bingo games.
  • A Hall Charities Association may choose to conduct Super Jackpot games with multiple “horizontal” licences or a single “vertical licence”:

- “Horizontal” licences allow licensees to offer different Super Jackpot prize boards in conjunction with Regular Bingo events. A “horizontal” licence limits a Super Jackpot prize to a single time slot per day. For example, a licensee could have one “horizontal” licence for a 2:00 p.m. slot and another licence for a 7:00 p.m. slot. If the jackpot is not won at the 2:00 p.m. slot, it must be carried over to the 2:00 p.m. time slot on the next day. Similarly, if the jackpot is not won at 7:00 p.m., it must be carried over to the next 7:00 p.m. time slot.

- A “vertical” licence allows licensees to offer Super Jackpot games only at Regular Bingo time slots that have the same Super Jackpot prize board. With a “vertical” licence, the Super Jackpot is carried over to the next time slot with the same prize board, until it is won.
