Bingo games can now be played 24 hours a day in the Stardust room. Stardust includes 66 winning patterns that constantly rotate throughout the day, changing for each game (or "draw"). Stardust has players from both BC and Manitoba!
Sales are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A new draw starts every 6 minutes and ends when a player gets a Full Card.
Each card (or "ticket") varies in price depending on the jackpot. You may purchase up to a maximum of 60 cards.
The prize pool payout for Stardust is 65% of all sales for each draw. Bingo winnings are calculated using half to even rounding for each ticket. Rounding is used after every step of the calculation. The originally calculated prize will be displayed to players. For example, if $0.79 is divided between two winners, the prize will be rounded from $0.395 to $0.40 per player with the sum of $0.80.
When there are Consolation prizes for Stardust, 5% of all sales for the draw go towards the Consolation prize.
Stardust also has a progressive jackpot called Ruby Jackpot. 5% of all salesfund the increment of the progressive jackpot and fund the base amount of the jackpot (the buffer). The jackpot is won or shared by the first player(s) to get a Full Card within 49 ball calls.
The guaranteed minimum amount is $1,000 and continues to grow until it is won. Once the progressive jackpot is won, it will return to its minimum base value.
The displayed jackpot will increase at the end of each draw to reflect the current draw's contributions unless the jackpot is won in the current draw which will cause the jackpot to return to the base amount of $1,000. At the beginning of a draw, the displayed jackpot is an estimate of the jackpot that can be won at the end of each draw.
A minimum of two players is required for a draw to be played. If you have purchased card(s) in a draw and there are less than two players the draw will be cancelled and your purchase will be refunded to your Account.
Please note that if you leave a draw for any reason and return after the draw is over, it will have been automatically completed by the system.
The odds of winning are based on several factors, which include the type of pattern played during a draw, the number of players in the draw, the number of cards that are in play in the draw, and the maximum number of balls that can be drawn to win.
