Look for "sweet" deals and "presidential" rewards in bingo this month as the parlors across the Las Vegas valley celebrate Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day. Here’s where you’ll find some great bingo action and giveaways this month.

Pick up a free box of Ethel M Chocolates from Suncoast or the Gold Coast on Sunday, at the 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions, while supplies last. Return on Monday for a free collector series Elvis dauber, available at all sessions. The President’s Day special will be a "Marathon of Coveralls." On Feb. 20, both bingo rooms will be offering three $1,000 guaranteed coveralls at all sessions.

Terrible’s Hotel Casino likes to celebrate the holidays with teddy bear giveaways, always dressed in style and befitting the holiday. Collect the winter Snow Board Bear on Valentine’s Day. Show your patriotism with a red, white and blue ribbon car magnet — your bingo gift for President’s Day on Feb. 21.

Sam’s Town will start giving away goodies this Wednesday with a mystery gift for all players. On Valentine’s Day, the casino will offer a set of Valentine’s coffee mugs and a great looking patriotic stars and stripes hat will be the giveaway on Feb. 23.

Have enough teddy bears? How about a Valentine dog instead? Play at any Station Casino bingo room (Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station, or Fiesta Rancho or Henderson) on Feb. 13 and pick up the playful little pup as your free gift. Both Fiesta rooms come back with a T-shirt giveaway on Feb. 20, plus half off bingo when you use your points on any Wednesday for Fiesta 50 members.

Every heart is a winner at the Silver Nugget this month. All bingo winners of $100 or more get to select a heart from the barrel drum with cash prizes up to $1,000. Free Valentine’s Day theme gifts will also be given on the lover’s holiday to all players.

"I Love You" pens will be the giveaway at Poker Palace on Valentine’s Day and free flag key chains will be the gift on Feb. 21 in honor of President’s Day. Small Rainbow packs are "on sale" for $5 at all sessions this month, too.

Take your choice of a plush heart pillow or a cuddly Valentine bear from Arizona Charlie’s Boulder or Arizona Charlie’s Decatur on Monday.

As a reminder, all gift giveaways and promotions in bingo are based on a minimum buy-in, usually $3-$4. Gifts are available at all sessions to all players, but only while supplies last. There are usually no rain checks given and most rooms limit the gifts to one per player.
