Island Bingo Farmingville, NY

Do not go to this facility the people running the bingo games are extremely nasty to their patrons. There is a lack of regard for the very people who actually help them to make money for their church or temple. They belittle, intimidate and yell at their customers. I have witness the people working the bingo games actually intimidate two poor little old ladies to move out of table because they wanted it for their family member. If you do not mind spending money to be abused go here otherwise STAY CLEAR and spend your money in a bingo hall that appreciates you being there.

On April 14, 2015, Island Bingo had a $9,000. Bingo patrons waited outside for hours for the hall to open up.

People were trying to cut the line, they were pushing and they were shoving. When those door finally opened, almost the entire front section of the hall had (allegedly) been reserved by bingo workers for their friends. Admission slips had been mysteriously placed at numerous tables. When I arrived at Island Bingo, the door was locked and only the workers were inside.

So, how did those admission slips get on the tables? I heard (allegedly) that the bingo workers and their friends planned this the night before. Who purchased those admission slips and when were they purchased? If they were purchased by bingo workers for their friends or the night before by bingo players that still did not give bingo patrons the next day the same opportunity to play bingo (discrimination).

I was told you cannot save a seat unless an admission slip have been purchased. The other bingo players who did not have reserved seats had to scat like rats for seating. Also, (allegedly) bingo workers are saving lines for their friends. Sometimes, the workers will tell you that you can only buy 4 of each line.

Then, there are times you can buy as many lines as you want. NO consistency...their rules!

There are no names on seats or parking spaces, but bingo players are fighting over these things and the workers are contributing to the cause. It is already out of control, but something has to done before it get physical!!!


Wow...I was going to go there tonight with my fiance' and his mother...but I'm thinking maybe now I should reconsider...thanks
