Holidays bring lots of promos

Jerry’s Nugget in North Las Vegas will take you on a Wild Safari Bingo Adventure during June. A free plush safari animal will be given to each bingo player (while supplies last) at the 1 p.m. session Wednesday, June 8. And on Tuesday, June 14, at the 11 a.m. session, all players will be given a free flag lapel pin to commemorate Flag Day.

On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, Jerry’s Nugget will host a special $50,000 Big Game session. The Big Game will be played at 3 p.m. and has a guaranteed payout of $2,000. At the 9 p.m. session on June 19, all bingo players will be given a free animal hat.

Finally, on Monday, June 27, Jerry’s will host its Safari Hunt Prize Pick at all sessions. Catch a green bingo ball on your winning card and get two items from the prize collection. The Safari Hunt Prize Pick includes the coverall games but excludes X-games and applies to single winners only with $3 minimum buy-in required to participate. By the way, Jerry’s minimum $3 buy-in is still among the very lowest buy-in levels in all of Las Vegas.

North Las Vegas neighboring casino, the Silver Nugget, is planning to give away a $12 rainbow pack with a minimum $10 buy-in as a bonus to all dad’s on Father’s Day. But you don’t have to be a dad — everyone attending can get the special, which applies to all sessions except for 3 p.m. game.

The Suncoast and Gold Coast casinos will celebrate Father’s Day with a travel bag giveaway to all players at all sessions on Sunday, June 19.

While most of the bingo action takes place at off-Strip hotels and downtown (Plaza and Western), there remains one bingo hall on the Strip at the New Frontier. While the bingo jackpots here are not as large as some of the linked and progressive games found at many of the neighborhood casinos, the smaller hall at the New Frontier has fewer seats, which actually gives players a better chance to win by competing against fewer people. Players also frequently find good bingo specials and promotions, too.

For instance, every day every Bonus Ball winner receives a 2-for-1 coupon for Margaritas Mexican restaurant. Every Monday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can pick up a free dauber with your buy-in. And every weekday, Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the first single-game winner at each session (except games 1, 8 and 12) will receive a week’s worth of free bingo play for the following week.

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.
