Kids can "play" with their parents or someone over 18. But the parent has to be the person to buy the bingo cards and to claim the bingo prize. I guess what I'm trying to say is no a child can not go to the bingo game, buy a card, and win a prize by themselves. Hope this helps

I had the pleasure of winning last bingo on the first day and then....I won the snowball last bingo game of the trip on the Dream in July. I made some great friends in the bingo lounge. Also, I was able to pay cash for everything we did at WDW the following week including a new Dooney for me! It was awesome. That cruise was made a little more sweet!

So...I will be playing again next week on Magic. It is fun if you have a good group and good cruise staff.

Good luck!

My husband and kids saw it (I was busy learning how to draw Pluto at Animator's Palate).
They actually had mention of this in the Navigator on our Magic Cruise last week. Something to the effect that it was won on the Wonder recently and would the Magic have the next $10,000 Double Jackpot Bingo winner.

On the Wonder last week Deano was talking about how the people that won the $10,000 did it with 1 ball left even...so at the very last MINUTE.. The thing with the 10 grand jackpot is you have to black out a card in 47 calls (I think it was 47) and apparently they did it on the 47th ball called. So the story goes

FYI, one person cannot carry more than $10,000 through customs, or at least you must declare it. It is easier to split it up among the adults.
