Novita’s popular Regency Park bingo sessions will move to a great new venue next year, and it’s just down the road! Chasers Restaurant at 55 Cardigan Street, Angle Park – less than two kilometres along Days Road from the Regency Park Centre – will be the new home of Novita Bingo from January 2020.

Chasers Restaurant offers Novita bingo patrons a fully licenced bar, a great kitchen delivering delicious food, plenty of car parking space, and enough room for up to 600 people.

With the sale of Novita’s Regency Park Centre earlier this year and the move to our new state-of-the-art facility at Hindmarsh in mid-2020, a new home for the Regency Park bingo sessions needed to be found, and so we are delighted to be moving to a venue that’s close and convenient for Novita’s bingo supporters.

Chasers Restaurant is just a short drive from Regency Park, or there are public transport options to get you there including the 239 and 361 bus routes.

Novita’s bingo coordinator Travis Wakeling says moving the Regency Park sessions to the new venue in January means patrons can start enjoying the comfortable and modern facilities at Chasers as soon as possible.

“Most importantly, the Novita Bingo that our valued patrons know and love will stay the same, with the same games, the same Novita Bingo team, and the same fun – all at a great new venue,” he says.

“The move to Chasers Restaurant at Angle Park won’t have any impact on our other bingo sessions throughout Adelaide. Up until we move our Regency sessions to Chasers, it will be business as usual for bingo at Regency Park.”


Greyhound Racing SA Hospitality Manager Alex Fairgrieve says that it is very exciting to host Novita Bingo at the Chasers Restaurant.

In Italy tombola is a very common family game played at Christmas, similar to bingo, the English version so popular in the United Kingdom, Ireland and, under many forms, all around the world. In Italy at Christmas Eve playing tombola is a must, with all the relatives united around grandparents and small children shouting when they win a prize (adults usually don't call a prize if there are children around, to let them win).

Modern tombola

Modern tombola cards are in plastic and have on the numbers small plastic slots that can be closed down when the number is called, but traditionally they were closed by beans ('fagioli') or by pieces of orange peel, that you had to eat while playing. Fix a price for each card (ex. 1 dollar). The players buy the cards, and one of the players buys the 'cartellone .

How to play

The money from the sale of the cards is divided into five prizes, from lowest to highest, with tombola being the jackpot:

  • the 'ambo', two numbers on the same row
  • the 'terno', three numbers on the same row
  • the 'quaterna', four numbers on the same row
  • the 'cinquina', five numbers on the same row
  • the 'tombola', all numbers on the card
Then the one who has the cartellone takes the numbers out of the sack, one at a time, calling them loudly, and placing them on their box in the cartellone, and leaving time to the players to mark the number on their card.

What you need to play

  • a tabellone with squares containing all numbers from 1 to 90;
  • numbered cards, all of them different, each one containing blank squares and 15 squares containing random numbers, arranged in three rows, each containing five numbers; this cards are bought by the players
  • 90 wooden or plastic 'tombolini' with numbers from 1 to 90, which are kept in a container (usually a cloth sack).

The Smorfia

For more color in the game, each number has also a nickname, either local or from the 'Smorfia' napoletana'; see below the common expressions.
