Freedom Lanes hosts Monte Carlo Night every other month, schedule and holiday permitting. Our next Monte Carlo will be announced soon! The cost is $15 and we are limiting participation to 4 per lane due to social distancing. Masks are not required but they are encouraged. We will have masks to hand out if you want one but forget yours at home.
If you’re not familiar with Monte Carlo, it is based on a regular 10-pin bowling format. There are three colored pins on each lane: orange, yellow and green. If you have colored pins in your rack in a certain configuration, it can be worth money! For example, a strike with a colored pin in the headpin position is worth $1.00, a strike with colored pins in the #1 and #2 positions is worth $2.00, etc., and some layouts can be worth as much as $15.00 if you can strike! A spare with colored pins in any position is worth at least 25¢. You must make sure your winning layout is recognized by the caller before you bowl. If you’d like to see the layouts and payouts, as well as all the rules, click here for a PDF (a new window will open).
We hold a raffle during each Monte Carlo that can be worth up to $250 if you can bowl a strike when your ticket number is called. Everyone who signs up and pays gets one free raffle ticket, and we have additional raffle tickets for sale before the first game. The size of the strike pots are determined solely by the number of raffle tickets sold! We also raffle other fun things like merchandise from the Pro Shop and gift certificates for bowling or food at the snack bar.
You must be 18 or older to bowl Monte Carlo. Reservations are recommended but not necessary. Check-in starts at 6PM – if we don’t have at least 18 bowlers signed up before 7PM the night of Monte Carlo, we may cancel the event, so if you want to join, let us know by calling 208-587-4448!
