Bingo is still popular among the older folks especially the ladies. It kills time and – if you are lucky – you can even win something.


But as eric pointed out in his blog on Monday, there are strict laws in regards to these games and the possible profits made from these games.


I know of quite a few associations that have “clubs” organizing these Bingo games and use the profits for enjoyment of its members. Sometimes I even hear of fights between association boards and club members over these “profits”.


If you read the “gambling laws” quoted by Eric carefully you will quickly find out that neither the association board nor the club leadership should consider using these profits for their own benefits.


So, in case you are one of the people profiting from these “profits” you better be careful, because: BINGO – YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAWS!

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
