    Yes, lots of off strip casinos. We played at fiesta rancho this past February, my wife wanted to try. They still used paper and daubers there which my wife liked cause it reminded her of playing with her grandmother. The staff was very friendly, helping us with explaining the difference games and such. We paid $8 each, my wife hit bingo and won $50.

    No, not dumb, because it's not prevalent in most places, like the Strip, for example. Most Bingo is available in off-strip properties, Red Rock and Sunset Station are two of them.

    The Plaza Downtown has Bingo also. I'm sure there are games elsewhere, hopefully other members will chime in.

    They do. Gold Coast allows two cocktails per person during each game.

    Totally off the top of my head and I'm sure others will chime in:

    Same town
    Gold Coast
    Plaza
    Palace station (and other station casinos)
    Red rock
    South point
    Silver sevens
    East side cannery

    Most are on every odd hour 9a-11p or 1a. Arizona is 24 hours to my recollection. Games last about 45 minutes each off hour; can play as cheap as $4 some places. I spend a bunch more and buy all thr biggest payout sheets. I usually stay away from the computers but the majority of the players in Vegas get them.

    South Point's is great. Before I started gambling, I would go there, since $6 got you their cheapest bingo pack and 3 free drinks. Free donuts for the morning sessions too!

    We've played the church style where we would mark our sheets with daubers. But in Vegas the numbers are called so fast that it's very difficult to do it this way. We found out the hard way and would soon fall behind the numbers being called; it was no fun let me tell you.

    With the electronic option you can sit back, enjoy the atmosphere and drinks and the electronic sheets will do the rest, even alerting you to a Bingo.

    A bit off the beaten path, but we love spending time at South Point playing Bingo.

    How exactly do electronic bingo sheets work? Do you have to get a new one for every game or do the numbers change for each game? Dumb questions I'm sure :)

    It's not a sheet; it's a device that looks like a fat ipad. You enter the number on your receipt into the machine. The machine is linked wirelessly to the board where the numbers are being called. You can set the device to display your 1 best card, 3 best cards, etc. It will tell you things like "3 cards 2 away" Vegas bingo has double bingo into triple bingo, 6-pack into 9-pack, full card, no free space allowed, validated means you paid a couple dollars extra to get in the bonus. The bonus will kick in if you hit a full card bingo if they've called less than 35 numbers. It gets complicated. There are also different color cards. Depending on the color, the cards cost more money but pay off more. For example, you might be able to get 2 red cards at $5 each or one tan card for $10. A red card bingo might pay $100 while the tan card bingo pays $200.
