ADVERTISE with The Bingo Bulletin: Online & in Print!

The Bingo Bulletin is a paper that is referred to more frequently than most newspapers, over much of the Southeast originating from Asheville, NC. Players check and re-check to verify times, dates and special prizes. They also keep the paper handy for an entire month, or even longer. Unlike some other papers it isn’t thrown away at the end of the day. Request a free media kit here.
