Bingo big on Labor Day

Aug 29, 2005 2:09 AM

Bingo players love holidays. Besides the wilting heat, August always leaves us lacking because there are no holidays in the month.

But, have no fear, Labor Day is finally here! And Grandparent’s Day, too!

Bingo players are back in business for September and hot on the trail of bingo gifts for the holiday weekend.

Visit your favorite Station Casino on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5 and receive a gold necklace displaying a miniature bingo card as a giveaway to all bingo players. Boulder Station, Palace Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station and both Fiesta’s (Rancho and Henderson) will be offering the giveaway to all players at all sessions while supplies last.

Sam’s Town will be giving away T-shirts on the Monday holiday and as well as dauber bags later in the month (Tuesday, Sept. 20).

The Labor Day special at the Gold Coast and Suncoast will be a "Marathon of Coveralls" that feature three, $1,000 guaranteed coveralls with double action at the 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions.

For Grandparents’ Day, Sunday, September 11, five $1,000 guaranteed coveralls will be played at the 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. sessions with regular pay on games at 1 p.m. and 11 p.m.

With the recent addition of the Prime Rewards slot club at the Eldorado in Henderson, bingo players can now earn points for their bingo play, which translate to future comps and special mailings. A free gift will be offered to all bingo players on Labor Day, which features "Crazy Bingo" and a $500 coverall at all sessions. The bingo room will also be running $1,000 guaranteed Moneyball seven days a week at all sessions through September and free validation on Tuesdays and Thursdays at all sessions all month long. Session times are Sunday through Thursday at 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 p.m. On Friday and Saturday the casino adds an 11 p.m. session for night owls. The Prime Rewards club is linked with Jokers Wild in Henderson, although Jokers Wild does not offer bingo.

Arizona Charlie’s Decatur continues to offer birthday guests a good deal. If your birthday is in late August or September, play on your special day and receive a free $6 rainbow pack and a free dauber, too!

Poker Palace in North Las Vegas is promising a free gift on Labor Day and will be offering $5 rainbow packs at every session throughout September. There is a maximum limit of 10 rainbow packs per person per session.

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.
