If the Customer joins a Bingo Game whilst it is in progress and the Customer has already purchased tickets for that Bingo Game, the Bingo Game will resume at the current number being called, the Customer’s purchased tickets will be retrieved and the Customer will be able to watch the remainder of the Bingo Game being played out.
If the Customer is disconnected while a Bingo Game is in progress, the Customer can still see the results in “Bet History” after completion of the Bingo Game.
