Time for a Thanksgiving bingo binge!

Nov 21, 2001 3:22 AM

Looking for something fun to do before or after turkey and football on Thanksgiving Day? Try one of Las Vegas’ local casino bingo halls for plenty of action, excitement some great free gifts, and most of all a chance to cash in big!

The holidays are always a good day to participate playing bingo.  They offer some of their best promotions and almost always offer some great premium gifts with a minimum buy-in.

Please note that the casinos most often claim gifts are available only while supplies last, but they are usually well stocked.  The limit for a gift is usually one per player per session, but you can return to play as many sessions as you want. Remember to attend sessions early on holidays as the rooms fill up quickly and you’ll want to have time to purchase your bingo cards, get a complimentary beverage and find good seats to sit with your family and friends.

For starters, the Gold Coast and Suncoast are both offering triple bingo points for the entire month of November which means you’ll earn cash back three times as fast.  If you play any Monday through Thursday at the 9 a.m. or 5 p.m. session, you’ll receive a voucher for a free breakfast buffet.  Play at the 11 a.m. or 11 p.m. sessions, (also Monday through Thursday,) and you’ll get a two-for-one lunch buffet coupon.

Their special offer for Thanksgiving Day will be “Good Neighbor Sessions,” at 1, 3, 7 and 9 p.m.  Players to the right and left of each single winner of games 1 through 12 each receive a $25 bonus. (Word at press time is that the Bonanza Game at Suncoast is worth over $60,000!)

Terrible’s Casino, at Flamingo and Paradise, celebrates Thanksgiving early on Wednesday, November 21, by offering free whole apple pies at all sessions while supplies last.  They are also giving 10 times slot club points for the entire month of November at any session you play.

Station Casino’s, (Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe,) will have a four day Thanksgiving celebration from November 22 through November 25, offering a free stuffed pilgrim or Indian bear at each of their sessions.  A different style of gift will be given out each of the four days, so you can try to collect them all.

The Eldorado Casino in Henderson will be canceling their 1 and 3 p.m. sessions on Thanksgiving Day, but will re-open for the 5 p.m. session, serving up free dessert slices of apple or pumpkin pie to all players.  Stay for the 7 and/or 9 p.m. sessions and receive a free gift.

Finally, here’s a couple other choices for your holiday play.  The Plaza, the only downtown casino with a live bingo room besides the Western, will be giving away a free photo album to all players, at all sessions with minimum buy-in on Thanksgiving Day. Or for those in the northwest area, try the Fiesta. Free doughnuts at every 9 a.m. session this month and a free collectible Thanksgiving Holiday Bingo Dauber will be given to all players on November 22.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Until next week, may you all shout, “B-I-N-G-O!”
