Las Vegas casinos will be busy with Memorial Day activities, events and specials, and it’s usually one of the busiest weekends of the year. Bingo rooms will be bustling too, with lots of giveaways and special events.

All five Station Casinos that offer bingo (Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe) will honor Memorial Day with a free gift to all players at all sessions a day early, on Sunday, May 25. While supplies last, buy-in for a minimum of $4 and receive a free portable personal fan.

The Gold Coast and Suncoast will offer bingo players two days of specials over the holiday weekend. On Sunday, all players at all sessions will receive a free logo canvas tote bag with a minimum buy-in as long as supplies last. On Monday, the 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. sessions will feature four $1,000 guaranteed coveralls.

Celebrating 20 years of bingo as well as Memorial Day, Sam’s Town will give away commemorative T-shirts to all bingo players on the Monday holiday. As usual a minimum buy-in is required to receive the gift and quantities are limited.

The Plaza downtown is giving away a set of "His and Her Watches" on every bingo jackpot of $500 or more everyday this month. They will also offer a free gift to all players on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26.

At the Silver Nugget in North Las Vegas, all players receive free validation (a $1 value) with any Fortunet special at all sessions on the Monday holiday. Also on the holiday, at the 1 p.m. session only, all players can collect a free "Super Bear" as a gift with a minimum buy-in.

In other bingo news, Terrible’s has announced that "Planet Bingo" will be coming soon. Planet bingo is a progressive, colorized bingo ball game giving players a shot at larger jackpots and is currently running very successfully at the Gold Coast and Suncoast.

Finally, the Palms is gearing up to give away another $4,000 in bingo cash prize drawings on Thursday, May 29. The drawings will be held at 3 and 9 p.m. and players receive an entry ticket by playing at any of the regular Thursday sessions (1, 3, 7 and 9 p.m.) this month. All bingo players also get $5 in free slot play once per Thursday with a minimum buy-in.

Until next time, may you all shout "B-I-N-G-O!"
