Where can I get a bingo card?
Official bingo game cards will be found inside the Tulsa World the final Sunday of every month. Copies of the Tulsa World can be delivered at home or purchased everywhere they are sold, including our downtown office, 315 S. Boulder Ave., during regular business hours. A different colored bingo game card will be available at the end of each month for the next month's bingo contest.
Where do I find the bingo numbers?
Two (2) Blazing Hot Bingo numbers are published in random sections inside the Tulsa World each day. A bonus bingo number will be published on Sundays, so that's a total of three (3) bingo numbers to be found in the Tulsa World on Sundays. The numbers also will be on display at the Tulsa World lobby during regular business hours.
What do I do once I get a bingo?
You may submit an official bingo card at any time. However, we recommend play continues through the end of the month. The top bingo prize is $800 for the blackout drawing. Official bingo cards must be dropped off or mailed to the Tulsa World prior to contest deadline to be eligible for a chance to win any of the four random drawings and cash prizes.

If there are no eligible entries to select a winner, the prize amount will roll over to the next month to be added to the prize amount for the same category.
How do I enter for a chance to win the cash prizes?
All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. 5 days before the live drawing. No photocopied, faxed or emailed entries will be accepted.

If I have a winning card, what should I do?
The best thing you can do is continue to play the entire month. It increases your chances to win more money. When you are ready to submit your winning bingo card(s), simply, use scissors to separate your four bingo cards and write your name, address, and telephone number on the back of each card. Also, on the back of the card, include what type of Bingo you’ve got — Letter “T”, Letter “W”, Letter “N” or Blackout.
You can submit a Bingo card in person at the Tulsa World’s downtown office or by mail by sending it to the following address: Tulsa World, 315 S. Boulder Ave., Tulsa, OK 74103. Mark the envelope ATTN: Blazing Hot Bingo.
