The Gold Spike in downtown Las Vegas is no longer offering its free casino-wide bingo game. And with the demise of the Westward Ho last year, the last bastion for free bingo in Las Vegas (in a casino) can be found at Ellis Island Casino. They run free bingo games Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Small prizes and cash, $10-20, are awarded per game. You can play from anywhere in the casino, even dining or playing slots. The games are announced over the speaker system.
