New bingo’s a Fiesta

Jan 11, 2005 3:00 AM

The Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson have revamped their Fiesta 50 program, which now includes a special for bingo players. Fiesta 50 is part of the Amigo (slot) Club for members who are 50 or older. Every Wednesday Fiesta 50 members receive a 50 percent discount on bingo when they use their club points. Benefits include half off points for buffets and restaurants and triple points all day on slot and video poker machines.

Go coverall crazy at Arizona Charlie’s this month. Arizona Charlie’s Decatur is running three $1,000 guaranteed coveralls everyday at 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. and second chance coveralls at every session (excluding the 11 p.m. session on Fridays and Saturdays.) At Arizona Charlie’s Boulder, three coveralls paying double or triple are played at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 9 p.m., daily. The Decatur room is also still giving away birthday presents. If your birthday is in January, play on your birthday and receive a free $6 rainbow pack and a free dauber. Note that this is a slight change from previous months. You must play on your actual birthday to receive the gifts, not just on any day during your birthday month.

Sam’s Town is offering a variety of special bingo gifts this month. On Tuesday, all players with a minimum buy-in receive a ladies spa kit, and on Jan. 20, everyone receives a barber in a box clipper set. Play again on Jan. 26 and collect a complimentary mystery gift. Bingo gifts are available at all sessions while supplies last.

On Jan. 17, the Suncoast and Gold Coast will honor the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday with special game offerings. The 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions will feature four guaranteed $1,000 coveralls. The entire casino floors at both locations (as well as sister casinos, the Orleans and Barbary Coast) will also be rewarding slot players with double points that day.

Finally, the $125,000 Super Bingo weekend scheduled at the Plaza downtown for Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 has already been sold out. Always plan ahead for these big bingo sessions.

As a reminder, all bingo gift giveaways are available at all sessions (unless noted otherwise) to players who purchase a minimum bingo buy-in ($3-4 in most casinos) and are limited to quantities on hand. Play early in the day to guarantee yourself a gift.
