Coast casinos host
mega bingo event

Apr 24, 2007 3:58 AM

A reminder that the Suncoast and Gold Coast casinos are busy preparing for another huge bingo event scheduled for May 21 and 22. This may be your final opportunity to get in on this huge mega-event, as it will surely sell out early. The $250,000 Mega Bingo Event will be held simultaneously via a linked system at both casinos. Tickets are available by reserved seating only. A total of 35 games, including 10 Warm-Up games, will be played each day beginning at 11:30 a.m. with the bingo halls opening at 8:30 a.m. The Mega Game Sessions will begin at 12:30 p.m. on both days with an intermission half way through.

For a cost of $250 per person, 1,318 players will compete for ten $1000 jackpots in the Warm-Up games and $5000-$10,000 bingo jackpots during games 11-34. The 34th game will be an incredible $50,000 Mega Blackout game that rolls over into game 35, a $10,000 second chance coverall game. The entry fee pays for both days and each player will receive one 9-on pack. Additional 6-on packs are $25 each with a limit of 9 additional packs per person per day. The entry fee also includes two breakfast buffets, two dinner buffets, two daubers and a special bingo gift. Visit the bingo room at either casino to reserve your space. Tickets may also be purchased by phone. There are no refunds after May 11. Fiesta Rancho has the "newest" bingo room in town. The recently remodeled room now features new carpeting, fresh paint, a new call stand, new plasma displays and better promotions like higher paybacks, such as Second Chance Coveralls and new specials and discounts. Five sessions are played daily from 11 a.m. through the final session at 7 p.m. And the new Jumbo Bingo is now also available at Fiesta Rancho. When it hits, everyone is a winner!

The Gold Coast and Suncoast are also giving away porcelain dolls on Sunday, April 29 at all sessions all day.

Sam’s Town will be giving away an 8-piece kitchen knife set with a cutting board to all bingo players on Wednesday, April 25 at all sessions while supplies last.

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.
