Happy ho ho bingo!

As we head into the big bingo holidays of Christmas and New Year’s, there are plenty of giveaways along the way to keep us busy this month.

Terrible’s Hotel & Casino celebrates its 5th Anniversary today, Tuesday, with a casino-wide party, paying up to 5x on video poker royal flushes, blackjack bonuses and 5x points all day. In the bingo room, the winner of the fifth game at each session will collect a nice $50 bonus in honor of the celebration. Terrible’s lunch or dinner buffet goes for $5 on the sixth of the month, to honor the special day too.

On Thursday, Dec. 8, Sam’s Town puts us in the holiday mood with a miniature Christmas house giveaway at all sessions except 1 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Downtown the Plaza and Western hotel-casinos are joining together to offer one of the largest bingo prizes ever offered in a bingo drawing. On Jan. 3, 2006, one lucky winner will drive away in a brand new Mini Cooper car! Bingo players receive one drawing ticket from now through Jan. 3 when you play the Plaza’s 9 a.m. or 11 p.m. sessions, or the Western’s 10 a.m. session. On January 3 at 8:15 p.m. the car winner will be drawn in the Plaza’s Triple Crown Ballroom. The winner must be present.

Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson will be giving away a tri-color "B-7 Highlighter" pen at all sessions on Sunday, Dec.11.

Pick up a free snowman coaster set from the Gold Coast or Suncoast on Saturday, Dec. 17, at all sessions, while supplies last.

On Sunday, Dec. 18, all Station Casinos and Fiesta Casinos will be giving away a kitchen trivet. Bingo is offered at five Stations including Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe plus the Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson.

Near the end of the month, we’ll have a new bingo room in town, as South Coast will open with a large 600-seat hall.

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.

Stay tuned. Next time we’ll look at all of the Christmas specials, giveaways and New Year’s Eve bingo packages. Until then, may you all shout "B-I-N-G-O!"
