I guess enough time has wounded my heels now I must confess I put great effort into (once again) maintaining 1st place in the tourney. Never saw the disclaimer and ABSOLUTELY would not have kept competing once in the top 5 had anyone informed me of the change. I had to sit out the prior week waiting for my withdrawal to be approved. (it was, and it got here fine) Chatted with other participants and chat hosts about needing to win bingo so I could spin more and get to number one. Not one word about the new "I asked for it" rule. Went to bed slept well when the tourney ended. Next day...$75 instead of the expected $250. Then they said, no you were fourth. Our dear Scrooge
was first place. I am sure cannonballs were shooting out of my eyes at that bit of incomplete info. They let me get hopping mad then sprung the surprise fine print on me. Personally I felt they were totally making the whole thing up, but...it's my choice to play if I feel that way or not so I bailed out of all the bingoaffiliates and left the balance rotting away in my account.
With a name like scrooge, in the middle of the heatwaves of early summer, well, I'm thinking more a knife in the back bya bot than someone just like me being lucky to be chosen for first place. And I couldn't let myself stick with them. Would have been nicer if the explanation had gone into the detail of the rules change, but no, they let me hang from the hook on that.
