HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A bill that would allow volunteer fire companies and other nonprofits to increase their bingo prizes is headed to the full House for a vote.
House Bill 411 was unanimously approved Tuesday by the House Gaming Oversight Committee.
The measure would increase prize limits from $250 to $500 for any one bingo game and from $2,000 to $4,000 for jackpot games. The total amount of prizes awarded in a calendar day would increase from from $4,000 to $8,000.
Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) said her proposal also would allow organizations to advertise their games online, and it would remove restrictions on the number of days groups can have games.
