The Army said it is examining its bingo gaming program less than a week after the Navy abruptly suspended its bingo games at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
The Navy also is conducting a review, but the Army said there are no plans to discontinue the popular games while the study is conducted.
“We are committed to following state law and if we suspect for any reason that our program violates (headquarters) guidance or state law, we will cease bingo operations immediately,” the Army said.
The Army said it is conducting “an audit of our existing bingo operations to ensure we are compliant with (Installation Management Command) regulations. We hope to have completed the audit within a week.”
The U.S. Army Pacific staff judge advocate office will then “conduct a legal review to ensure we are not violating state law,” the Army said.
