Where can I get a bingo card?

Official bingo game cards will be found inside the Kearney Hub the last Saturday of the month (example, the blue cards for May were inserted on Saturday, April 25). Non-subscribers can purchase the Hub at newsstands or at the Kearney Hub office. Additionally, one card can be picked up free of charge at the Hub office during regular office hours. A different colored bingo game card will be used each month.


How do I register my bingo card?
Registration is available online at https://www.kearneyhub.com/register-bingo/.
You are not required to register your BINGO card to play or win the contest. Registering your card does NOT enter you into the drawing. It does allow us to contact you with any content news, if there is any.

Where do I find the bingo numbers?

Two (2) Blazing Hot Bingo numbers will be published in random sections inside the daily Kearney Hub. 2 numbers will also be included in the Bravo entertainment section every Thursday. And, a third, “bonus” bingo number will be included in each Saturday edition of the Hub. The numbers will also be on display in the Hub lobby during regular business hours.
Note: During the quarantine, numbers are posted on the front door of the Hub office.

How do I win?

You may submit an official bingo card at any time however, we recommend play continues through the end of the month to see if a card qualifies for a larger prize.

Official bingo cards must be dropped off (there is a mail slot at the front door) or mailed to the Kearney Hub prior to contest deadline to be eligible for a chance to win any of the four random drawings. Make sure you separate the 4-card sheet and clearly mark the back with (1) the game you wish to enter (Blackout, T, etc; see below) and (2) with your name, address, and telephone number.
