Las Vegas Brings Bingo Back

When most people think of Las Vegas bingo is the last thing on their mind. Most people think of Las Vegas as a place for hard core gamblers and casual vacationers. Vegas casinos have it all; poker, blackjack, roulette, slots and other table and casino games. In recent years some Las Vegas casinos have been hit by declining revenues caused by the global recession and are trying to lure players back to the casinos. A few casinos think they have found the solution to declining revenues – bingo.

Binion’s is one of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas. In 1951 Texas gambler Benny Binion launched the popular casino with the philosophy, “Good Food. Good Whiskey. Good Gamble.” Benny introduced the Horseshoe in Vegas’s “Glitter Gulch” and the rest is history. Like many other Las Vegas casinos Binion’s was hit by the recession and looked for ways to boost profits. Recently Bingo came back to Binion’s after a long absence. Binion’s has opened a new bingo room in the middle of the casino and will run six bingo sessions a day with 13 games per session. Binion’s spokeswoman Lisa Robinson said the return of bingo is part of a move by TLC Casino Enterprises to add games to boost revenues. Many other Las Vegas casinos have started to offer bingo for the same reasons.

In addition to live bingo some US casinos have launched bingo sites. In 2010 Harrah’s Interactive Entertainment, Inc launched Caesars Bingo which at present is only available to UK residents. Harrah’s recognized the potential of the UK bingo market and launched the bingo site in March 2010. Harrah’s online bingo sites will also offer exciting slots, roulette, blackjack and baccarat using the latest state of the art technology. Harrah’s is the first Las Vegas gaming giant to enter the lucrative UK bingo market. Harrah’s partnered with gaming technology provider Gamesys to create and launch the new bingo site.

Harrah’s is entering a highly competitive market but the company’s brand is well known and trusted. Harrah’s operates casinos globally and is one of the world’s largest gambling companies. Promotions at the bingo site will include all expenses vacations to Harrah’s in Las Vegas. In the meantime Las Vegas casinos are bringing bingo back to the gaming floor. Las Vegas bingo is not the typical Midwestern grandmother’s bingo. Vegas bingo is more intense and entertaining and several casinos have re introduced internet bingo games with great success.
