Big-time bingo returns to halls

Oct 31, 2005 1:10 AM

High-stakes bingo is back this month along with several good Veteran’s Day promotions.

The Plaza’s $125,000 Super Bingo has returned for a three-day event beginning on Sunday, Nov. 13 and continuing through Tuesday, Nov. 15. Forty games of bingo will be played over that span with jackpot payouts ranging from $2,000 to $20,000 per game!

The hotel and bingo package sells for $199 (per person, based on double occupancy) and includes three nights, $70 in dining credits and a $5-$25 table games match play coupon, a bingo gift, daubers and two days of non-stop bingo action. For more information or to reserve the dates, call 1-800-634-6575.

Suncoast will also be hosting a big bingo day, Sunday, Nov. 13. Doors open at 3 p.m. for the $60,000 Bingo Bash. Warm-ups start at 5:30 p.m. and the big Bash games kick-off at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available by reserve seating only. The $100 buy-in per player pays for all 30 bash games and each player receives one 6-on pack. An extra 6-on pack is $20 with a maximum purchase of five additional packs In addition to the big money games, "good neighbor" will be played at all games with the player to the right of each winner receiving $25. Again, this will be another sell-out event. Call soon if you want to participate. To purchase tickets by phone, call 702-636-7111, ext. 5609.

For Veteran’s Day, Friday, Nov. 11, both the Suncoast and Gold Coast will be passing out free 2006 Contemplations calendars to all players at all sessions with a minimum buy-in.

Over the next two months, Station Casinos will be outfitting your kitchen beginning with a complimentary salt and pepper shaker set to be given away to all players on Nov. 6. Collect the entire matching set including a creamer, spoon rest, napkin holder and trivet on various dates (posted in the bingo rooms) through December. Bingo is offered at five Station Casinos including Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe.

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.
