Holiday bingo fare

Dec 14, 2004 4:46 AM

Christmas is a time for giving and Las Vegas bingo rooms will be doing their share of giving this holiday season. You don’t even have to promise Santa Claus that you’ll be a good boy or girl to get these gifts and goodies!

Today (Dec. 14) is customer appreciation day at Sam’s Town and all bingo players will receive a mystery gift. Come back on Christmas and receive a free 2005 Sam’s Town calendar.

Arizona Charlie’s Decatur continues its monthly birthday promotion to say "Happy Birthday" to bingo players in December by giving everyone with a birthday this month a free $6 Rainbow Pack and a free dauber. They will also be passing out free holiday daubers to all players on Christmas Day. Its sister casino, Arizona Charlie’s Boulder, will be giving away a special snowman or Santa Christmas stocking to all bingo players on the holiday.

If you missed out on collecting the complete miniature toy train sets at Station Casinos last month, you have a chance to fill in your missing cars this month. Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson have a fun holiday train car giveaway. Collect a set of six holiday train cars to form a complete 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. Call your favorite Station casino to see which cars they will be giving away on different Sundays this month. Fiesta Rancho also adds a Holiday Dauber giveaway to their playing schedule this month giving away a choice of four colorful daubers to all players on Sunday, Dec. 19.

Dec. 19 is also a giveaway day at the Suncoast and Gold Coast. Pick up a Russ Berrie 14 inch "Spriggs" Teddy Bear at the 1 p.m. or 7 p.m. sessions. On Christmas Day, both casinos will give away holiday daubers all day at all sessions while supplies last.

Poker Palace in North Las Vegas really has the Christmas spirit going. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in December all members of the Gold Card slot club can receive a free Red Pack just by presenting your club card at the bingo cage. There is a limit of one free red pack per person per day and a minimum $3 buy-in is required. On Christmas Day, collect a free Christmas Treasure Chest at any session with a minimum buy-in.

Terrible’s will feature one of their popular teddy bear giveaways on Christmas Day. All players receive a Christmas Bear with a minimum buy-in at all sessions.

As a reminder, 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.

Stay tuned for New Year’s specials. Until then, may Santa bring you all a big "B-I-N-G-O!"
