Bingo rooms honor vets
with gift giveaways

Nov 9, 2004 3:05 AM

As America honors our nation’s veterans, the bingo halls across Las Vegas celebrate the holiday with several exciting gift giveaways and promotions. Let’s run down the current list of special gifts for Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11.

Texas Station: Beetle Bailey dauber giveaway.

Gold Coast and Suncoast: 2005 Norman Rockwell calendars.

Fiesta Rancho: Grab bag giveaway.

Poker Palace: Patriotic lapel pins.

All bingo gift giveaways are available at all sessions (unless noted otherwise) to players who purchase a minimum bingo buy-in ($3-4 in most casinos) and are limited to quantities on hand. Play early in the day to guarantee yourself a gift.

Station Casinos (Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset, Santa Fe, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson) have a fun Holiday Train giveaway promotion running this month through Dec. 12. Collect a set of six holiday train cars to form a complete miniature train from the engine to the caboose with four toy-toting cars in between. The train cars are dispensed free on Sundays (with a minimum bingo buy-in) and each bingo room offers different cars on different Sundays. Make the rounds on Sundays and you’ll easily be able to collect the entire set by mid December.

Along with Fiesta, Station has now also added "Bingo Bonus Hard-Way Jackpots." If you get a hard-way bingo (a bingo without using the free space) in the first five numbers called on games three, five, nine or 11, you’ll win a progressive bonus jackpot of no less than $1,000. This bonus jackpot is available free to all players that validate their bingo cards for the other progressives. The Hard-Way jackpot was recently hit for $11,600!

Play Sam’s Town on Nov. 15 for a mystery gift giveaway.

Besides the Veteran’s Day gift giveaway, you can go "Crazy 4 Coveralls" again this month at the Gold Coast and Suncoast. There are four $1,000 guaranteed Coveralls played every Friday and Saturday in November at the 9:00 p.m. session and every Sunday at the 1 and 3 p.m. sessions. Essentially, bingo players have three more chances to win a $1,000 coverall game than during normal sessions! Regular bingo is played with the usual payouts on games one-11.

Finally, held over at the Silver Nugget in North Las Vegas, the bingo room continues to run an amazing 50 times points at all bingo sessions during November. They also offer 20 game sessions every Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and at 1 p.m. on Sundays.

Here’s a salute to our veterans and all those still serving! Stay tuned for Thanksgiving bingo specials next time.
