PRIOR LAKE, Minn. – A Shakopee man recently won a whopping $88,000 bingo jackpot at Mystic Lake. John, who prefers his last name not be released, is a member of the Lions Clubs International and has long been a weekly charity bingo player.

John says he only recently started playing bingo at Mystic Lake. “Playing bingo is a fun way to spend time with my mother and sisters,” he said. Before hitting the jackpot, his biggest win had been about $1,000. Some members of his family thought John was kidding when he told them how much he’d won. “I had to show them the giant check,” he laughed.

To play the Do-It-Yourself bingo jackpot game, players choose eight numbers. Their chosen numbers must appear in the first 20 calls of the game, or the progressive jackpot prize will roll over to the next day and players will instead play for a consolation prize of $500.

What does John have planned for his $88,000 windfall? He says that he’ll use some of it for home improvement projects, and will likely take a golf vacation to Arizona later this year. And, of course, he’ll keep playing bingo.
