The Access Communication’s Children’s Fund TV Bingo is a staple in many Saskatchewan households, and its popularity has only grown through the COVID-19 pandemic. With all the buzz around it, we thought, what better time to highlight what makes TV Bingo so special. Simply put, TV Bingo is a fun time with family and friends – all while staying safe and cozy at home and supporting a great cause.
Okay, I’m interested. How do I get started?
First things first – you’ll need to purchase a TV Bingo card. Bingo cards are $12 and can be purchased at several local retailers across the province. To find your nearest bingo card retailer, click here.
Once you have your bingo card in hand, you’ll want to tune in to AccessNow TV on Saturdays at 5:00 PM.
All right, it’s game time. What can I expect?
You can expect a humdinger of a good time! Our TV Bingo program will run for about 90 minutes with a halftime break. Every Saturday, we play thirteen games, with anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000 in winnings being given away across the province. You’ll be playing with players from hundreds of communities in Saskatchewan every week.
When playing TV Bingo, make sure you have a phone handy. You’ll need to call in quickly to claim your prize winnings if you win. You can also text in your birthday and anniversary wishes and text or email selfies of your bingo group playing. We pick a selfie of the month, so your photogenic group might even take home a prize basket.

What’s the great cause that TV Bingo supports?
TV Bingo is a major fundraising initiative for our registered charity, the Access Communications Children’s Fund. Our Children’s Fund supports programs that serve children at risk or in need in our province in these focus areas: education and literacy, health and wellness, and social inclusion. TV Bingo players are a big reason our charity has donated over $2.5 million towards these programs since 1992. Together, we’re doing our part to make Saskatchewan a better place.
