Want to be the next Dickie? There are Bingo Caller job listings out there on the Internet, so if you're looking for a gig, practice your "B-15"s and "0-7"s.
According to simplyhired.com, the average salary for a Bingo Caller in Boston, MA is $18,000/year. What would the job be like? Well, besides constant exposure to Bingo - and what could be better than that? - being a Bingo Caller means that you could potentially work anywhere, including on a cruise ship. A good Bingo Caller takes control of constantly keeping the crowd entertained, so he or she should be outgoing and energetic with an excellent stage presence and a sense of humor.
Dickie certainly incurs much wrath in chat when players are not getting the numbers they are looking for, so a good Bingo Caller should ALSO have a thick skin.
What makes a good Bingo Caller to you?

You can still get your electronic bingo fix in sunny California! Although the machines had been deemed illegal and were set to be removed from establishments all over the state, a current ruling has them staying put ... for now.
Many charities use bingo machines for funding and filed a lawsuit to keep them from being removed. A U.S. federal judge issued a temporary restraining order, disallowing the removal of the bingo machines while the lawsuit is pending. There will be a hearing regarding this matter on June 25.
So the world - er, California - remains safe once more for bingo! Do you ever play bingo on electronic machines?
