Mich. Admin. Code R. 432.21322 - Verification

Rule 322.

(1) A bingo game is won by the player or players who have the winning combination required to win the game.
(2) The last number or symbol called shall appear on the player's bingo card that is being verified.
(3) The actual numbered balls in the master board shall be the only official scorer, except as provided by subrule (4) of this rule.
(4) If a random number generator is used, an electronic equivalent to the master board shall be the official scorer.
(5) There shall be a sufficient number of designated floor workers to provide complete coverage of the bingo playing area for purposes of identifying player bingos.
(6) It shall be the responsibility of the player to make his or her bingo known to a worker or caller by saying the word "bingo" before the next number is completely called. An alternative method to declare bingo may be used if stated in the licensee's house rules.
(7) A player who is unable to say the word "bingo" due to physical limitations shall be permitted to use another method of making his or her bingo known.
(8) Once a worker hears the word "bingo," or an alternative method allowed by the licensee, the worker shall immediately notify the caller and the game shall stop for a verification of the bingo card. Any ball that is drawn or selected in error shall remain available for continued play, if necessary.
(9) A worker shall announce the winning combination of numbers or symbols that appear on the winning player's bingo card back to the caller who shall verify that the balls are in the master board except as directed in writing by the bureau based on the best interest of the public welfare. In a coverall game, the caller may announce the numbers or symbols that are not called and the worker may verify that these numbers or symbols do not appear on the player's bingo card that is being verified.
(10) On all games where the single prize paid to a player is $100.00 or more, the bingo card or cards shall be displayed so that 2 or more players can observe the verification process.
(11) If a player is playing more bingo cards than the number of bingo cards stated on the verification slip or playing a disposable bingo card series number not sold by the licensee, then any bingo called by the player shall not be honored and a prize shall not be paid.
(12) A player may verify all the balls drawn or selected at the time a winner is announced.
(13) A player may observe the verification of the winning bingo card.
