For over 30 years, Temple Beth Am in Margate has held weekly Bingo games.
This is part of the ongoing evolution of a community event that has held a special place in the heart of Broward County.
Known as the “best Bingo in Broward,” these games have long been a staple of the area’s social calendar. The varied and stimulating games, staffed by volunteers, have earned a reputation for being both entertaining and inclusive.
Kosher snacks, sandwiches, and drinks are available for purchase throughout the evening. Free coffee and tea are served during the game, ensuring players are comfortable and energized. A free dessert is offered at intermission, sweetening the deal for those in attendance.
Everyone in the community is welcome to join the fun every Monday and Wednesday evening —except for national and religious holidays.
Additionally, the Bingo events at Temple Beth Am offer volunteer opportunities to temple members, fostering a more profound sense of belonging and service.
Every Monday, doors open at 5:00 p.m., and Bingo starts at 6:15 p.m. There is a $1,000 Power Ball and a guaranteed $250 coverall jackpot at the end of the game. Additional exciting prospects include an orange border progressive coverall jackpot worth up to $250 and a U-Pick-‘Em coverall jackpot worth up to $250.
On Wednesday afternoons, doors open at 10:00 a.m., with Early Bird games starting at 11:00 a.m. The day’s gaming concludes around 2:00 p.m. The Wednesday Bingo sessions feature a $500 Lucky Ball and a $100 Junior Jackpot before intermission, a guaranteed $250 coverall jackpot at the end of the game, and a Lucky Seven coverall jackpot worth up to $200.
