"What's electronic bingo? A slot machine by another name

For one thing, they know how to have 'charity bingo' without the dog exploding.
With the appearance of a reported 18 (and growing) electronic bingo halls, Jasper has turned into tacky Tunica. The high-class veneer and grand facade opulence of Tunica's multimillion-dollar casinos have been dumbed down and given the Alabama treatment.
There are no fancy steakhouses inside these establishments, but you can have sad-looking hot dogs, popcorn and soft drinks. Alcohol is strictly prohibited, dancing too, so the religious can still play bingo without sin. Jesus loves bingo, but not on Sunday."
