How do I start playing? 

You can find your personal digital Bingo card here or on your app! It will also be sent to your inbox, so it’s imperative you get our emails (opt in here). To play, simply start completing bingo tasks.

Do I need to mark my own bingo card?

Nope, we do all the work! All the actions you fulfill will automatically be recorded and reflected every morning at 8AM. Just fill out those squares and have fun!

How do I check my progress?

Each task you fulfill will be automatically marked on your personal Bingo card (on this page or the app) which is updated at 8AM every morning.

What if I fill out my entire bingo card, can I get another one?

We love an ambitious bingo player, but each person gets ONE Bingo card. Don’t let that stop you from completing it though! Finishing your board will boost your chances of winning that $1,000 prize (12 entries is a lot). 

When will I know the results?
