Top 5 Bingo Halls in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS—When people think of Vegas nowadays, they rarely think of Bingo. Most people choose Vegas for a shot at the roulette tables or slot machines and rarely try out the many bingo halls the town has to offer. Perhaps it’s because of the widely spread image of Bingo as a game for the elderly, or the misconception that it offers little or no excitement at all – whatever it is, they couldn’t be further from the truth.

Bingo is making a strong comeback in Vegas as most Bingo halls have upped the game by offering free drinks, exciting bonuses and specials, electronic displays, and even an all-around- the-clock sessions for everyone’s convenience. These fresh and exciting updates have proved effective, as people from all age groups started adding Bingo on their to-try lists while visiting Nevada’s “Sin City”.

Now, it’s true that most people nowadays would rather play it online instead of dressing up and going to a game and who could blame them? There are many online casinos that offer bingo, some even offering no-deposit bonuses to let you try the game for free and win real money, like the Paddy Power no deposit casino bonus. However, the Bingo hall will always hold its appeal, and there’s no better place to feel it than in Vegas.

South Point

South point is probably the most popular of choices for Bingo players in Vegas. The Bingo hall held the title of “Best Bingo in Las Vegas” for 4 consecutive years and most players still agree it was well-deserved. Every Session offers a 10,000 Bonus coverall for 52/- numbers, a progressive Double Action Game and a Cashball jackpot. There are 8 sessions, starting at 11 AM and continuing for every odd hour until 1 A.M. The hall has 600 seats, electronic units, free drinks, and hosts special holiday Bingo galas where you can win plenty.

Red Rock

The Red Rock Resort is famous for its luxury image and quality offers, and their bingo hall is no different. Their 610-seat hall hosted a number of large tournaments in Vegas and once you see it - you’ll understand the choice. You have 8 sessions, starting from 9 AM and continuing for every odd hour, complimentary drinks, $1,000 coveralls (4) each Saturday and Friday, daily specials, 8 Cashball jackpots a day, electronic units and other great monthly specials.

Gold Coast

Gold Coast is another popular choice for Bingo players. If you’re looking to be impressed, the Gold Coast has the largest Nevada Bingo Hall with a staggering 720 seats. They have games every odd hour between 9 in the morning and 11 in the evening, complimentary drinks for every session, shuttles, free group transport, free doughnuts at 9 AM, electronic units, 10 cashball jackpots per day, and a double quad session at 10 PM in which you can win up to $2,000.

Arizona Charlie’s Decatur

An award winning bingo hall, Arizona Charlie’s is the only Bingo hall offering non-stop sessions at every odd hour. They have a 500 seat hall, complimentary drinks, doughnuts at 5,7 and 9 AM, $10,000 coverall jackpot on 51 numbers, a double progressive beginning at $20,000 for a $1 per card play, as well as ace ball and bonus X bingo on each session.

Sam’s Town

One of the first locals’ casinos in Vegas, Sam’s town has been a popular choice for bingo players ever since it first opened in 1979. The Bingo hall still hasn’t lost its appeal and now offers Bingo sessions for both novice and experienced players. The sessions start at 9 A.M. and they continue for every odd hour until 11 P.M. The hall seats 500 players, there are complimentary drinks, doughnuts at the 9AM session, double triple action at 1PM and 9 P.M., hot ball at every session, and a bonus progressive coverall of $10,000 and up.

For just $5 Vets can get acknowledgement on drivers license

            Solano County’s 33,500 veterans and the 11,000 veterans in Napa County are now eligible to receive a driver’s license acknowledging their service in the United States Armed Forces, through a new statewide program.

Beginning Nov. 12, the Department of Motor Vehicles will be issuing driver’s licenses with the word “veteran” on them to those who qualify, Napa and Solano County officials said.

Napa veterans can visit the Napa County Veterans Service Office (CVSO), at 650 Imperial Way in downtown Napa, and complete the DMV application.

Veterans will need a certified copy of their discharge papers (DD-214) showing they received anything other than a dishonorable discharge or that they served in a Guard or Reserve component and were mobilized for federal active duty.

            Solano County vets can stop by the Solano County Veterans Service Office for an official application form, which they can take to the DMV starting Nov. 12 to get the new veteran driver’s license. Solano County Director of Veterans Services Ted Puntillo asks that vets bring a copy of their DD-214 paperwork to get the form.

            The new driver’s license means veterans will no longer need to carry their discharge papers to show proof of military service, officials said.

            The CVSO will verify the documents and approve the application, which can then be submitted to the DMV. There is a $5 fee to have the veteran designation placed on a driver’s license, on top of the normal renewal fees, officials said. Veterans who are not due for renewal can obtain a new license for a $35 replacement fee.

The CVSO can order copies of discharge papers. Veterans who visit the office can also discuss their eligibility for federal, state and local benefits. To date, Solano County Vet Services has already helped more than 100 vets obtain the application form, officials said.

            For more Napa information, call 707-253-4558. In Solano, call, (707) 784-6590. Contact Rachel Raskin-Zrihen at (707) 553-6824.

Great Idea: Put Price Tag on Ballot Measures

By Jon Coupal President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

Would you commit to buy a car, a house or even a jacket without knowing the price? Unless you are a member of the one percent, chances are, you want to know what it will cost you before you make a purchase.

But what about ballot measures that can cost every citizen hundreds or even thousands of dollars?  At the state level, the Legislative Analyst’s Office has the responsibility to provide a “fiscal impact” analysis – that is, information to voters as to the costs to taxpayers of passing a proposition.

But this isn’t currently required at the local level. And those backing attractive sounding, but costly, measures like it that way. They prefer to keep the public in the dark. If a county measure promises to create new parks in every neighborhood, it may sound great, but taxpayers should know what it will cost them before they cast a vote.

Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do deserves credit for proposing a measure that would require a cost analysis by the county’s Auditor Controller for all county initiatives, and his colleagues deserve praise for agreeing to place it on the June ballot for voter approval.

The big question is why every local tax raising entity is not required to provide a non-partisan cost analysis for their sponsored ballot measures as well as those placed on the ballot through the initiative process.

Skeptics say that requiring a cost analysis might deter voters from approving a worthy measure, for example one relating to public safety. This argument was dismissed by Supervisor Todd Spitzer, who pointed out that voters are much more likely to vote no on an ill-defined ballot measure if they are not told what it will cost.

In our country we are going through a political process where the public is expressing its support for plain speaking. There is resentment toward members of the political class who equivocate and use insider terms that many find confusing.

So let’s be blunt. A significant number of local ballot measures are designed to provide an advantage to those inside government, including politicians, bureaucrats and other employees and/or special interests. Requiring a non-partisan analysis would provide voters, who will be stuck with the bill, another tool to evaluate a ballot measure. They can then do a cost/benefit analysis, the same as they would do before making a major family or business spending commitment.

So while Supervisor Do should be thanked for promoting openness in government, why  are there so few of our local representatives throughout the state taking a similar stand for full disclosure to voters of the full cost of measures they are asked to approve?

Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis  Taxpayers Association — California’s largest grass-roots taxpayer organization dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers’ rights.
