Another round of Bingo?  But this isn't a proper bingo card!  The idea here is you get a piece of "candy", aka a ballot, to be entered into a drawing for 2 eShop gift cards for Nintendo Switch Online.  These are for U.S., so if you are in a different country, then we will give you the cash equivalent.

The rules are simple, Simply do what is in the box and earn yourself 1 ballot, with a max of 10 ballots possible, to enter yourself into the drawing. 

Time to get Trick or Treating!
