Thankful for bingo!

Nov 25, 2003 3:08 AM

It’s all about Thanksgiving! Bingo rooms across the Las Vegas Valley will be as busy as ever during this holiday week. Traditionally it’s a very strong weekend for the casinos in general, but with so many good gifts, specials and giveaways, bingo will be extremely popular. More tourists in town help to step it up a notch too!

First, we’ll rundown the gift giveaways. Unless otherwise noted, all of the following promotions are for Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, and include the following general disclaimers: One gift per person per day or per session; all gifts only available while supplies last; a minimum Bingo buy-in is required to receive the gifts (usually $3 or $4.) Details on all promotions are posted in the bingo rooms.

Arizona Charlie’s Decatur: Beginning at the 5 p.m. session on Wednesday, Nov. 26 and continuing through the holiday, the bingo room will be giving away a "Holiday Towel and Pot Holder Set."

Arizona Charlie’s Boulder: Offering the same giveaway as Decatur, except that it will begin at the 1 a.m. session on the Nov. 27. Both Charlie’s are offering Rainbow Packs for $6 through the month of November. That’s a $5 savings off the normal $11 price.

Jerry’s Nugget: Receive an oven mitt as a free gift on Wednesday, Nov. 26 at the 1 p.m. session only. Also on Wednesday, they will feature a $50,000 Big Game bingo session at 7 p.m.

Eldorado Casino: Thanksgiving Day sessions will be played at 5, 7 and 9 p.m. only. Catch dessert by playing at the 5 p.m. session and receive a free slice of apple or pumpkin pie.

Suncoast and Gold Coast: Collect the fifth in a series of special cartoon character daubers. On Thanksgiving Day, it’s "Blondie."

Terrible’s: Pilgrim Teddy Bears are being given away at all sessions on the holiday.

The Silver Nugget, Poker Palace and Sam’s Town are also all planning gift giveaways for this Thursday.

On Friday, Nov. 28, Sunset Station will be giving away espresso coffee mugs and saucers. There is a limit of one per person per day on this one.

Finally, the last regular bingo day at The Palms this month is today, Tuesday, Nov. 25. Session times are 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. and are held in the Key West Room. In addition, they are also offering a free $10,000 Bonus Bingo Session to 500 Bingo players, to be held on Nov. 30. All bingo winners from all regular sessions in November receive an entry, plus there are random drawings at every session.

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