The sponsor for StarNews Bingo Bucks Promotion is Hardees which gave out coupons and gift certificates as part of the prize. The grand prize, awarded to the first person who covered the entire bingo card, was $1000 and $100 in Hardee’s gift cards. The four smaller prizes, awarded to the first horizontal, first diagonal, first vertical and first “X,” was $50 plus $75 in Hardees gift cards.
StarNews included a form on the front for collecting names, phone numbers, and addresses of players. A participant fills in the form and, if their card is not a winning card, will mail it in to be in a drawing for ten prizes of $25 in Hardees gift cards and then 15 prizes of $10 in Hardees gift cards.
The details of the promotion, prizes and rules are spelled out on the back of the Bingo cards.
