"Bingo!" at "Hotel Transylvania"

Despite 'Bingo!' being one of the most popular games of chance, the animated feature "Hotel Transylvania" (2012) seems to be the only film to cover all the action...but with a 'Transylvania Twist':

"'Hotel Transylvania', is a holiday retreat owned by 'Dracula,' designed for other monsters and ghouls to escape to on vacation. And like all good vacation resorts, there are great games to play during the day, including 'bingo'. 

"Here in 'Monsterland', everything is played 'the monster way'. The bingo balls themselves are actually tiny skulls which hiss their number to the bingo caller who reads it out. 

"In one scene, an excited bingo player cries bingo after her number is called out. 

"Unfortunately, the player beside her is a little old lady monster, who shows how competitive bingo players can get when the balls aren't going their way..."

There's still not much out there for "Bingo!" fans, but at least we can still play bingo online or watch a rerun of the "Better Call Saul" (2015) episode "Bingo!"...
