A Texas woman created an online game of Bingo to encourage residents to support local restaurants through local deliveries.

Nicole Watkins, of Kingwood, launched "Quarantino Bingo" on Facebook as a way for local residents to order food to go while self-quarantining, KTRK reported.

People who join the Facebook group can request a Bingo card through a post on the page or through a direct message, the television station reported. Contestants mark off squares when they order at least $15 worth of food to go from the featured restaurants.

When players get Bingo, they can choose a gift certificate from a restaurant featured on their card, KTRK reported.

“They’ll win this gift card, but they’ll be able to use it at a later date after we’ve gone back to normal,” Watkins told the television station. “We’re trying to build business, not take away from businesses right now.”
