Mega Bingo is back…

The Mega Bingo Game Show is back… After almost a year of being on indefinite hiatus, following the broad daylight murder of its owner, Alfred Schakron, on Coney Drive in Belize City, the game show is on the return. The family entertainment show will debut once again on Saturday, October fifth, with the grand prize; a progressive jackpot of one hundred thousand dollars.  Five other patterns according to host of the show, Rachel Armstrong, will also be featured in the game. Armstrong says that J.D. Financial is going back to its original patterns and the traditional way of playing the game.


Rachel Armstrong, Host, Mega Bingo

“The game goes back to its original form which means that the progressive jackpot has to be won within forty-nine balls or less. Mega Bingo is basically your traditional bingo game that everyone plays at home with their families and whatever. It just has a mega twist, hence the name mega bingo. I mean who wouldn’t like to play your traditional bingo game and win a hundred thousand dollars. The other prizes we have are amazing as well. The lowest prize is a hundred dollars and if the progressive jackpot is not won, of course, the full house pattern is up for grabs; that’s five thousand dollars. The best part about this is that only the progressive jackpot is shared; all the other patterns—if you win five thousand dollars….if six persons win five thousand dollars each one of them di get five thousand dollars. So you can’t beat that with a stick you know.”

“What is the most asked question about Mega Bingo when people encounter you on the street? Because I know as a host, people always come and there is one question that they would ask repeatedly. What’s your question?”


Rachel Armstrong

“What dah di winning ticket number?”


Marleni Cuellar

“Which of course you can’t remember?”


Rachel Armstrong

“I wish I mi know it myself Marleni.”

“Is it future or past that they ask you? The one that will play thinking that they can strike a deal with you?”


Rachel Armstrong

“People come up with all kinds of things. Gial give me the winning number and I’ll split it with yo. You know, it is all random things. Basically like any other lottery machine, the balls are shuffled in the chamber, the ball is popped out of a little tube; it is called out in the pattern which they come. And the game is played until a pattern is won. Usually, the four patterns—the straight line, inside world, outside world and letter X are the first to be won. But like I said, the Mega Progressive Jackpot has to be won within forty-nine balls or less. If it is not won by the forty-ninth ball, then the game continues on until there is a full house winner and they receive five thousand dollars each.”


Tickets are still two dollars and can be bought at outlets across the country.

    So ho got the fortune. Was it the Shacaron woman? We want to know.
    Has the lousy police gotten any leads? Seems like a simple case to crack if they follow the money.
