Bingo halls primed for dads!

The Bingo play-of-the-day will be on Father’s Day, this Sunday, June 15. The holidays are always big days for bingo gift giveaways so you’re sure to find plenty of action this week.

Here’s a rundown of the Father’s Day bingo specials. All listings (in no particular order) are for Sunday, June 15, unless otherwise noted. As with all giveaways, minimum buy-ins are required and all gifts are available to all players at all sessions, while supplies last, again unless noted otherwise.

Station Casinos: (Palace, Boulder, Texas, Santa Fe and Sunset) Shoe Shine Kit Giveaway.

Arizona Charlie’s: (Decatur or Boulder) Emergency Roadside Car Service Kits. Also, all Small Rainbow Packs are a special at $6 this month. Regular cost is $11.

Sam’s Town: Embroidered Logo Baseball Caps.

Castaways: Manicure Sets. Also, on Flag Day, Saturday June 14, a special "$12,000 Must Go!" session will be played at 7:00 p.m. Buy-in for the game will be $15.

Plaza: Multi Task Lighted Screwdrivers.

Poker Palace: Free Box of Whitman’s Chocolates.

Jerry’s Nugget: Car Care Kits at the 7 p.m. session only.

Terrible’s: Collector’s Teddy Bears.

Suncoast and Gold Coast: Cell Phone Wallets. On Saturday, June 14 all players receive free Patriotic Angel Cheeks Figurines in honor of Flag Day and "Popeye" Daubers on Saturday, June 21. Also, both locations have dropped Planet Bingo and are now back to progressive Bonanza games.

Sometimes questions arise as to why the Fiesta’s don’t appear on the free gifts lists. Rest assured that they offer their players great gifts, and very often more than just on holidays! The trick is to begin playing with them and using your Amigo slot club card. They have a special mailing list for bingo players, and you’ll begin receiving the gift coupons in the mail!

Because the Palms bingo sessions are held on Thursdays, there won’t be a Sunday Father’s Day gift. Instead players can pick up a free set of Crystal Bowls this Thursday, June 12, at the 1, 3, 7 and 9 p.m. sessions with a minimum buy-in. They are also giving away $5 in free slot play every Thursday; one per player per day, and are accepting all competitors’ bingo coupons at all sessions all month. Complete details on all bingo promotions are posted in the casino.

Happy Father’s Day!

Until next time, may you (and your Dad) all shout "B-I-N-G-O!"
