Well, the day is just about here. The machines are in place and the Auditorium plans to open for business tomorrow. As has been said before: "The only difference between paper bingo and electronic bingo is the advent of the microchip." These machines issue a paper tally and you are still required to affirm you have a winning status. You play against other persons in the room. so the game is essentially the same. Both TV stations were there getting interviews from Mayor Pittman as to what effect it would have on Chickasaw. As he told them: "It could make all the difference in the world as to whether this city moves forward or stands still" My position in this is all about the success of Chickasaw; let's see what happens.
