Just in time for the hottest months of the year, Terrible’s Hotel Casino comes through with a free car sunshade giveaway for bingo players every Friday and Saturday at the 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. sessions for the month of July or while supplies last. A minimum $6 buy-in is required to receive the nifty gift.

Additionally, Terrible’s is offering another teddy bear for your collection. A free "Surfing Teddy Bear" is available to all players at all sessions on Saturday, July 23. Perhaps best gift of all are free lunch buffets that are being given away every day at the 11 a.m. sessions or get a free dinner buffet every day at the 5 p.m. sessions this month.

Sam’s Town (home of the $20,000 "Even Bettor" Bingo Progressive) continues to offer free bingo gifts throughout July. Play on Saturday, July 16, and receive a free candleholder and on Monday, July 25, everyone receives a free mystery gift.

Sign up now if you want to play the Plaza’s $125,000 Super Bingo scheduled for August 14-16. These big bingo weekends sell out early. Forty games of bingo are played over two days with jackpots ranging from $2,000 to $20,000 per game! A bingo-only entry is $185 and includes both sessions of Super Bingo, two $10 dining certificates, two daubers and a special gift.

Always a popular promotion, every weekend in July at the Gold Coast and Suncoast are "Crazy 4 Coveralls," with four $1,000 guaranteed coveralls at the 9 p.m. sessions on Fridays and Saturdays, and the 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sundays. Regular games are played on games 1-11 with the last game of each session offering the four coveralls.

Fiesta Rancho is offering "grab bags" as a gift this Sunday, July 17, at all sessions, and Jerry’s Nugget is giving away sun visors at the 7 p.m. session on Saturday, July 16.

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.
