RECAP on Prize Distribution:  For many months now, the prize distribution does not give everybody equal chance to win something after 3 long games.  It has been considered many times to revise the old way in order to give more opportunity for others to win prizes, especially when new players come there should be more encouragement.  From now on everyone should try to play as many bingo words as possible because for each bingo you’ll receive $1.00/bingo played.  This incentive forces you to study bingo words.  When a player wins 3 games, that’s all he can take, plus the number of bingos played. The player who wins 3 games cannot take the prizes for the HC neither the single HG points.  There are 7 prizes below (7 for 7 heavens).  The Super-S Club ranks the top prizes in the order of $$ amounts:  (1)  Win 3 games ($25); (2)  Bingos played ($1.00/bingo); (3)  Highest cumulative score ($10); (4)  High single game points ($1.00/point); (5)  Highest point for single bingo ($5); (6)  Highest point for a non-bingo word ($5); and (7)  Category words ($5/word).

The next Super-S games:  December 15, 2016.  REMINDER will be sent a week prior.
