Give mom a shot at a bingo jackpot!

May 6, 2003 5:13 AM

Holidays and bingo are a natural fit! Take mom out for her Mother’s Day dinner and play a little bingo with a chance at some big-time cash. Plan ahead for some terrific celebrations, along with special gifts and giveaways in your favorite bingo rooms this weekend.

The Gold Coast and Suncoast will celebrate mom’s weekend with gifts for all bingo players on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, collect the first in a series of Betty Boop Daubers. On Sunday, the gift will be a mirror compact. Gifts are given to all players at all sessions with a minimum buy-in while supplies last.

Arizona Charlie’s East is celebrating the first year anniversary of its bingo hall this month. The first single winner of games 2 through 11 at all sessions in May receives a free play good for their next visit. Both Charlie’s (East and West) will offer a sunflower photo frame/magnet as a gift to all players on Mother’s Day, May 11. A minimum $4 buy-in is required to receive the gift.

Mom’s, as well as everyone else, can also celebrate with the "$12,000 Special" big game bingo party at the Castaways on Saturday. The buy-in is $15 for the 7 p.m. special session and extra packs are $10. All games pay $500, and there will be a final $2,000 coverall game with four $1,000 second through fifth place chances! On Sunday, regular games will be played all day, but all players will receive a free beautiful glass rose or similar flower as a gift with the minimum buy-in.

Play at your favorite Station Casino (Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset or Santa Fe) on Mother’s Day and receive a complimentary sewing kit as a gift. Boulder Station will also be introducing and celebrating new "STAR" electronic bingo units beginning Tuesday, at the 1 p.m. session. Enjoy free cake and champagne all day and be among the first to try the latest in new bingo technology.

Additional Mother’s Day bingo gifts will be offered at Sam’s Town (glass covered dome with flowers); Rosebud Pins at Poker Palace, and Hawaiian Bears at Terrible’s.

Finally, bingo at the Palms returns to Thursdays this month, (instead of last month’s Wednesday games) so there will be no Sunday Mother’s Day gift. However, all players do receive $5 in free slot play (one per player every Thursday) with a minimum bingo buy-in. They are also accepting all competitors’ bingo coupons this month. Some restrictions apply and complete details are posted in the casino.
