Technical Questions

Are there any technical requirements we need to know?

In order for your online game experience with us to be smooth and hassle-free, you should have access to the technologies below before joining the event. We recommend that you prepare & download the apps a week before the event.

1) Computer or a mobile device with webcam & audio

      • For those joining the Raffle only: One device is enough so you can log in to Zoom and also join the trivia game.
      • For tech-savvy people who are joining the online Bingo game:

– It is advisable that you use a device that will allow you to be in the Zoom meeting AND view your online Bingo cards at the same time. A laptop computer is ideal for this purpose. This will allow you to be in the Zoom meeting and have several internet browser tabs open especially if you purchased more than one online bingo card.

– If you are using your mobile phone, iPad or Android tablets, we recommend that you use 2 mobile devices: 1 device for the Zoom meeting, and another device to view your online Bingo card.

– If you bought more than 1 Bingo card for a bingo game pattern and have access to multiple mobile devices, it will be easier to use all your devices so you can view all your Bingo cards.

      • If you are not tech-savvy and you are joining the online Bingo game, you only need

– One device that will allow you to join the Zoom meeting
– Printed copy(ies) of your online bingo card(s). The bingo card link(s) that we will send you can be printed. Make sure you print out your cards before logging in to the Zoom meeting.
