We have shared the virtues of playing Bingo in Las Vegas a few times over the years. Yes, most of the people playing bingo in a casino are who you think they are. Some Bingo players are a little younger and there’s sometimes even a few players who very much younger but are still legal casino in the Bingo rooms.
Bingo is a fun, inexpensive and different way to spend an hour in Las Vegas. Players can buy into a Bingo game for as little as $4. As I mentioned last year, I play the $20 packages because that provides about all the action I can handle while drinking and yapping. Each of these buy-ins come with complimentary drinks. If you arrive in certain casinos early enough, you may be able to enjoy some complimentary doughnuts too!
You won’t find Bingo at casinos on the Vegas Strip. However, there’s a Bingo room in many casinos around town. There’s a good list of Bingo games around Las Vegas here.
Many casinos are updating their Bingo rooms and games for their current players. Station Casinos, however, is creating Bingo games that can appeal to anyone. Here’s a look at a few new Bingo games Station Casinos has around Las Vegas.
