Over 40 years ago, Six Nations Bingo was hosted in our old community hall. Back then, people used to gather at the community hall only on Monday nights for a 7pm evening session. People used to bring cow corn niblets to use instead of bingo chips. A time when there were no special jackpots and absolutely no such thing as a ‘progressive’ jackpot. A time when $40 was a HUGE cash prize.
Community members operated bingo by volunteers raising money for things such as sports teams fundraising to travel for championships Canada wide. A rather fine example to display how Six Nations Bingo operations have grown from very strong roots.
For over 20 years now, Six Nations Bingo has grown into the largest and friendliest bingo hall in the region. In the year 2016, we awarded over $15 million dollars in cash prizes to our guests who visited us from all over Southern Ontario.
Six Nations Bingo Donates over $795,000 to Local Non-Profits
Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) and Six Nations Bingo is proud to announce their contribution to the Six Nations Sponsorship Program in the amount of $795,378 for the 2017 calendar year. Six Nations Bingo has been donating 40% of their annual net profits to the Six Nations Sponsorship Program since a permanent bingo facility was constructed. In May 2015, the management of Six Nations Bingo was transferred to SNGRDC who continues to support the Sponsorship Program through annual contributions. This year, Six Nations Bingo was able to increase its contribution by 22% over last years contribution. This increase, was in part a result of the introduction of the new 24 Ball Virtual Bingo game, which can be played by patrons, over the age of 18, anytime during regular bingo hours.
