   Bingo players will find treats galore for Halloween! Almost every game in town this week has something extra special to offer players. November is looking good too. We’ll look at some of the top promotions for Halloween and beyond to get things started this week.

   As always, the holidays like Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, are excellent days for free Bingo gifts in many of the Las Vegas halls. Here’s a quick rundown on who will be offering what. The standard disclaimers always apply to Bingo gifts including minimum buy-in required, one per person per session, available at all sessions (unless otherwise noted) while supplies last.

   Station Casinos: (Boulder, Palace, Santa Fe, Sunset, Texas,) Special Halloween Bingo Daubers will be the gift on Oct. 31.

   Arizona Charlie’s: (East and West) How about “Funky Guy Key Chains, Pens and Magnets?” You can try to collect all three at different sessions throughout the holiday.

   Sam’s Town: Doing a Halloween Dauber giveaway on the special day. Collect different styles.

   Jerry’s Nugget: Pick up a free stuffed Halloween Bingo Bear at the 7 p.m. session only. They will also be playing Bonus Bingo (chances for extra cash on winning bingo cards), on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at the 9 p.m. session and again on Thursday, Oct. 31, at the 3 p.m. session.

   Gold Coast and Suncoast: A little something different in the way of a gift on the holiday. Get a free “Moon and Stars” nightlight at all sessions. You’ll also get double points at all sessions during October and November.

   Terrible’s: Doesn’t a casino named Terrible’s sound like it would be a haunting place to play on Halloween? If you do play, you’ll receive a Halloween teddy bear at the 9 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. sessions. Single cover-all jackpot winners at all sessions on Oct. 29 and 30 will also receive a special “Boo-Dauber” as a winners gift. Bingo players in November will get a chance to qualify for free rooms based on your play.

   Fiestas: (Rancho and Henderson) Players will receive a Wicker Basket as a gift on Wednesday, Oct. 30. On Oct. 31, both locations will play a $15,000 Halloween Bingo Tournament. (See the Bingo Room for complete details on how to qualify.)

   Planning ahead for November:

   Every Plaza Bingo winner in November gets a free “Mini Canned Critter.”  All winners at all sessions receive the prized little guys. Collect the whole cute set!

   Suncoast will hold their special 30-game “$100,000 Bingo Extravaganza” on Sunday, Nov. 10. Ticket packages range from $125 to $185 that include chances to win $1,000 — $20,000 during the all day sessions. Tickets are now on sale at the bingo cage or purchase by phone, toll free, at 877-636-7111, ext. 5609.

   That’s it for now. Until next time, May you all shout “B-I-N-G-O!”
