Hot holiday promos

May 23, 2005 5:38 AM

Memorial Day brings the first of the summer holidays, which means another great weekend for bingo players to pick up free gifts and cash in on special offers.

Sam’s Town kicks off the holiday early with a logo T-shirt giveaway to all players with a minimum buy-in on Wednesday.

Palace Station is giving away comic book hero Beatle Bailey collectible daubers to all players on Sunday. Sister casino, Sunset Station, will be passing out "I Love Bingo" license plate holders to all players on Monday.

On Sunday, the Suncoast and Gold Coast casinos will quadruple your chances to win a big one by offering four $1,000 guaranteed coverall games at the 1, 3 and 9 p.m. sessions on game 12 of each listed session. Pick up a free travel wallet portfolio on Monday at either casino during the 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions. "No Split Payouts" continue at 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of May. Hit a bingo on games one through 11 and receive the full-pack prize, even if there are multiple winners.

Pick up a Terrible’s flag bear on Monday, along with patriotic red, white and blue ribbon car magnets.

In North Las Vegas, all the major bingo halls will be passing out patriotic gifts on Monday. While Poker Palace and Silver Nugget plan to "surprise" us with an appropriate holiday themed gift at all sessions, Jerry’s Nugget has announced a ceramic eagle giveaway at the 9 p.m. session only on the holiday.

Downtown, the bingo hall at the Western Hotel continues giving away free bonus pack with every buy-in through the end of the month. No coupon is required. Play at five daily sessions (10 a.m., noon, 2, 4 and 6 p.m.)

For Laughlin bingo fans, Avi Resort & Casino is the latest casino in that area to add a state-of-the-art bingo room. Play at five daily sessions, (8 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.) seven days a week.

Finally, plan ahead now to play some big time bingo at the Suncoast on Sunday, June 5. The $60,000 Bingo Bash begins at 6:30 p.m. with the doors opening at 3 p.m. and warm-ups starting at 5:30 p.m. Minimum pay-out will be $1,000 ranging to as high as $10,000 on games 21 and 36. Admission is $100 by advance reservation only.

As a reminder, all bingo promotions are subject to change. 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.

Until next time, may you all shout "B-I-N-G-O!"
