Nothing beats free bingo game

Feb 21, 2005 11:23 PM

At least two casinos in Las Vegas actually offer free bingo! Downtown, the Gold Spike Hotel & Casino invites guests to play free bingo daily beginning at 6:30 a.m. Six free games are played daily every half-hour, with cash prizes ranging from $25 to $1,500. Bingo can played throughout the casino while numbers are called. Ask at the main casino cage for details. Locals and visitors are welcome to play, and the casino also features hundreds of slot machines from pennies to dollars and low table game minimums like $2 blackjack.

Guests at Ellis Island Casino and Brewery can also play free bingo Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Small cash prizes are given for game winners ranging around $10-20 per game. You can even call the casino and they will pick you up from home to spend the day and play.

For a chance at big bingo jackpots play Fiesta Henderson or Fiesta Rancho. The Quick-Pay Grande Bingo Progressive is linked between both casinos and the jackpot begins at $10,000 and increases daily. The cost to play is $1 per card. A player must complete the coverall within a pre-determined number of calls (number begins at 53 and increases by one every Friday) to win the progressive jackpot. A $400 consolation prize is paid out every day and at every session to the coverall winner if the progressive jackpot is not hit. That’s $3,200 per day just in consolation prizes!

Downtown’s only "official" bingo hall located at the Plaza gives a free Blue Pack with every buy-in at the 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. sessions. No coupon is necessary. Also, buy-in for $25 or more at the 9 a.m. session and receive a complimentary Express breakfast buffet or a Chop Chop dinner buffet with a $25 buy-in at the 5:00 p.m. session. During February, lucky winners of $500 or more in bingo also get a $10 Exxon or Mobile Gas Card as a bonus gift.

Sam’s Town has a very patriotic giveaway this Wednesday, February 23. Pick up a stars and stripes baseball style cap at all sessions while supplies last.

Collect a red logo pen and pencil set from Texas Station on Sunday, February 27 at the 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. sessions. A minimum buy-in is required to receive the gift.

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.
