Vhong Navarro Wins The First P1 Million In Pinoy Bingo Night!

Pinoy Bingo Night of ABS-CBN just launched their pilot episode tonight and Vhong Navarro makes the first clean shot to take home the very 1st One Million Peso!

Vhong Navarro Wins 1st P1 Million in Pinoy Bingo Night

Vhong played the ‘Nine Ball’ round where he’ll choose either red or black. If the color he chose matched the color of the number on the drawn bingo ball, then it eliminates the number from 1 to 9 of the ‘Nine Ball’ which matched either both or the single digit that is on the bingo ball. This continued until he’s left with the 8th ball and finally eliminated it and won the Million! 😉

Korina Sanchez actually played the first solo contestant but failed to finish the race to 500 points with a bingoer winning a P50,000 ahead of her.
