“Bingo Loco has become nothing short of an entertainment phenomenon in its birth place of Dublin and beyond.” – Lonely Planet.

Bingo Loco is not a performance, it’s an engaging experience with the mentality of a theatre show, while always ensuring every element is completely ridiculous.

In 2020, Bingo Loco is partnering with Make-A-Wish® Australia to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Each
year, thousands of Australian children are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Wishes complement medical treatment – working to calm, distract and empower sick kids at the time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible.

TERMS & CONDITIONS

Bingo Loco is an entertainment event run by Legs Eleven Australia Pty Ltd and is separate to cost of playing Bingo, operated by Legs Eleven Australia Pty Ltd on behalf of Make-A-Wish® Australia with authority to Fundraise. There is no obligation from attendees of the event
'Bingo Loco' to play Bingo. The separate cost to play Bingo is $3 for a booklet of 9 tickets. Proceeds from Bingo go to Make-A-Wish®
Australia and the maximum value of all the prizes combined is $1,000.

* Each player is offered the cash alternative of the value of the
goods offered as prizes.
* A Caller announces the numbers to the players which are selected at

by the host at the start of the game.
* Each ticket claimed to be a winner is inspected by the host and / or
the assistant of the host.
* Spotters will be placed within the audience to ensure each winner is
identified quickly.
* If Bingo is called on a winning number by more than one participant
or, from a number called prior to the last number called and someone
else goes out on the last number called, the prize will be shared
equally and an optional test of skill will be run for a bonus prize.
* A number is not fully called until the number has been repeated, if
a number is called by mistake and repeated, that number will then be
classed as called.

number will only be accepted as a valid number if it is called and
repeated by the Caller before the end of that game and providing the
Bingo machine is not faulty.

In order to unravel shared lines of connection, to suspend tension and to unleash collective desires, Kok and George look to macrame´, sailors’ knots, Chinese knots and rope bondage to weave together an interactive experience of collectivity. “Bunny” is a nickname given to the person being tied in rope bondage.
