The King of the Bingo Game is the story of a nameless protagonist engaged in a crucial bingo match. He hopes to win the game's jackpot and make enough from his winnings to pay for a life-saving operation for a woman named Laura, his presumptive wife. After being called to the spinner to make a stab at winning the jackpot, he becomes deluded and believes he can control his own fate by keeping the spinner going. Eventually he is dragged away, but the spinner settles on the jackpot.
