Another holiday weekend means more great bingo activities, deals, specials and gifts! Let’s take a look at Memorial Day bingo in Las Vegas.

The Gold Coast, Suncoast and South Coast casinos are all running a "Marathon of Coveralls" on Sunday, May 28. Three $1,000 coveralls will be given away at the 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions. That’s three chances at each session to win a $1000 for the coverall game. They are also offering "No Split Payouts" every Tuesday and Thursday in May at the 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions. Receive the full pack prize when you hit a bingo on games 2-12 of the session. Plus they are paying three guaranteed coveralls (first, second and third chance) at those sessions of $1000 each.

Sam’s Town will be giving away nice-looking "I Love Bingo" T-shirts to all players on Monday, May 29 at all sessions.

Visit your favorite Fiesta bingo hall for more gifts. On Sunday, May 28, Fiesta Henderson will be giving away frog scrubby holders, and cousin casino, Fiesta Rancho, will give away mystery gifts on Sunday and special Memorial Day daubers on Monday.

You can double your payout during the Fiesta Ball Bonus Bingo on May 29 at the 9 p.m. session at Jerry’s Nugget in North Las Vegas.

Casino neighbor Poker Palace will be giving away free daubers all day at all sessions.

Down the street, one lucky bingo player will take home a complete outdoor barbecue grill set from the Silver Nugget. Bingo players earn one drawing ticket with every buy-in and for every win on Sunday, May 28. The BBQ drawing will be held at 9:30 p.m. in the bingo hall. The winner must be playing in the 9 p.m. session to qualify.

The Eldorado Casino in Henderson will be giving away a "to-be-announced" free gift on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, with a buy-in at all sessions.

In other bingo news, Santa Fe Station is now giving away a free gift to players who play bingo on their birthday. (Must show your I.D. and buy-in for a minimum of $4.)

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.
