Nationwide Bingo has always been committed to creating a community of bingo halls all across the country.
But now we've gone one step further. Upon receiving several requests from individuals looking to start up a new hall of their own,
we have begun to create a list of expert bingo consultants. No individuals here work for, or are in any way affiliated with, Nationwide Bingo.
These individuals come merely as recommendations from other owners like you, or because of their many years of experience.
And remember, if you think you know of a name that should be up here then please do not hesitate to Contact Us about adding them here.
Sharon Smith is the founder of Creative Bingo Solutions, Inc., a full-time bingo consulting firm, specializing in providing start-up and turn around services to not only the Native American Gaming Industry, but stand alone bingo halls for profit. For over twenty years, Ms. Smith's experience has encompassed not only small halls, but large ones as well, showing expertise in exceptional hospitality training. Ms. Smith is fully versed in the usage of electronics and integrating machines into a paper-preferred hall, along with either computerized accounting systems or manual tracking.
Considered an expert in the usage of multi-level buy-ins and payouts, in addition to high stakes insured or progressive games, Ms. Smith has been able to utilize all of these features, if necessary, as a draw for bottom-end as well as top-end players. She has the distinct privilege of stating that if her recommendations have been implemented, all of the bingo halls under her direct supervision have been profitable. Ms. Smith has been associated with not only bingo halls all across the United States, but Central America as well.
In addition to the above consulting services, Ms. Smith has written a book on Bingo entitled "Bingo, Doing It Right, The Procedures Manual". This book, the first in a set of volumes, describes in detail not only all positions and duties in bingo, but includes the 1999 National Indian Gaming Minimum Internal Control Guidelines and how to comply with each one. Ms. Smith is presently working on her second volume, "Bingo, Doing It Right, Games and Promotions".
Ms. Smith was selected to be a representative for bingo at the formation of CalNIGA, and more recently, a repeat guest speaker at both the Bingo World Expo and G2e in Las Vegas.
