Tyseley Working Mens Club holds a number of regular events and draws, which
prove very popular with the members. Entry to bingo
costs 50p on Sundays and Wednesdays.
- Door Ticket Draw
The entry fee to the bingo entitles the holder to a ticket, which goes into a
prize draw. The prize is a free session of bingo.
- Sky TV
Showing Premiership matches, European football, Rugby, Cricket and Boxing.
Bingo takes place every Wednesday (9-10:15pm) and Sunday (8-9:15pm) in the
Concert room. Total silence descends on the room as the players listen
intently for their numbers to be called out. The atmosphere becomes tense as
the game progresses and there is a mixture of relief and frustration as the
winner calls 'house !'. How lucky will you be ?
Each session includes a six-page book where £10 is paid for any line and £20
for a house. There are then 4 fliers with varying prize money depending on
the prize pot.
- Super Sevens
When you purchase your bingo books, you can get them stamped for the Super
Sevens for just 20p. If you win a game on a seven, you win the accumulated
bonus prize, but only if the book has been stamped.
During the evening, one game contains the snowball draw. If 'house' is called
on or before the snowball number, the lucky winner also collects an extra prize.
As well as the standard game, two variants of bingo are also played, as a
little light-hearted relief from the main event. These are Psychic Bingo
and Standee Uppee, Sittee Downee.
- Psychic Bingo
In Psychic Bingo, players choose three numbers from the usual 1-90
used in the normal game and whoever's three numbers are called out first wins
a prize of up to £100. The stake for this game is just 50p. How well do you
think you will do ?
- Standee Uppee, Sittee Downee
The entry fee for this game is £1 and all the entrants start
in the game. As soon as your number is called, you are out and take no further
part. When there are only four players left in the game, these are called to
the floor for the final stages.
Two more players are eliminated to leave the final two entrants and at this
point, you get to show your true colours - do you agree to share the £80 prize
money between you or try to grab it all, by waiting for the other player to be
- Mini Tote
A Mini Tote draw takes place every Wednesday and Sunday evening.
Anyone choosing the two winning numbers wins a share of the tote prize,
which reaches around £100 for each draw. If there are no winners, the
numbers are redrawn.
- Bowls Tote
The Bowls Tote draw is made every Sunday evening. There are 48
numbers to choose from and the prize fund accumulates over a number of
weeks, until a winner is found. This can run into hundreds of pounds.

Wednesday and Sunday evenings.
On Sundays, two cards are run with a 50p stake, each winner receiving £18.

ticket. If you ticket is drawn out, you win £5.00 straight away and have the
chance to go for the jackpot in the format of the popular TV show of the

a pair, not in this game. There are 5 chances at a consolation prize of
£10.00 worth of drinks once the main competition is finished.
