That would be something if someone won both jackpots during the same week. :)

The BINGO Games aren't winning too much as compared to the other games in the Progressive Play Game. I believe I counted 4 winners in the $500-$1200 or so range, and it's a pretty long list. Just an observation. I'm not a fan of any of the bingo or crossword games, have never bought one and probably never will.
