    My Trip Report

    Just got back from another bingo trip (6th trip) which I sworn was my last unless I won something. I would have been happy with even a warm up game which were worth $1000. This bingo tournament was the 2 day tournament at the Goldcoast which was linked with the Suncoast & Sams town. Each game is played for $10,000 and the coverall is worth $50,000 for Monday and Tuesday is exactly the same. Like I said earlier, this was my 6th tournament, entry fee was $345 plus I purchased more cards (electronic) for an additional $150 per day. These bingo trips are expensive by my standards, averaging at least $3k per trip.

    This trip went a little different this time. I managed to yell out “BINGO” on day one on the first coverall game!!! That was the $50,000 game which often is shared with other winners however much to my joy, I was the only winner! The bingo worker came to our table to verify the win. My game was won on a electronic unit so it was almost certain my win was correct. After it was verified, the worker asked for my drivers license and SSN, she immediately said “we will pay you in cash if that’s ok”. Since I’m flying back home, I said I’d prefer a check which they complied. It took only about 20 minutes to get that check issued to me.

    This was the most exciting Vegas trip I’ve ever had! I wish I knew if anyone here on this VMB was playing from either at the Goldcoast, Suncoast, or Sams town. What a thrill!!!

    WTG, I am going to the Plaza tournament on June 2nd, hope my trip is exciting as yours. In February tournament at the Plaza the lady sitting next to me won the 50K. I manage a split on 3rd chance coverall for $1300. The tournaments are a lot of fun and the Plaza one is very inexpensive, $239 for tournament 3 night stay , 2 lunches 2 cont. breakfast $10 slot play and a gift. Like Sam I always buy extra cards. Still time for anyone to sign up for the Plaza tournament. They are adding 2 more free nights for the June tournament so that is 5 nights for $239.

    That is a great deal at the Plaza, to the point that even you don't play bingo 5 nights for $239, including 4 meals, makes it a bargain.
    When I plan my trips, I always keep my fingers crossed that there is a Stations tournament during my trip as I take "bingo breaks" (not my main game but I love it) at Palace Station. I usually don't luck out but Stations does typically have a tournament around the Thanksgiving period, which is often when I am in Vegas. I did it last year; paying for the tournament though I only wound up playing on that Saturday. It was great fun and helped me conserve my winnings on my last full day in Vegas before going home (which is why I couldn't play that Sunday/the second day).

    Edited to add: For those of you thinking about tournaments, they typically start mid-morning and are over by 4ish. I mention that because if they were truly all day I'd be less inclined to play in them but you can do a tournament and still have part of the afternoon and the entire evening to do other things; it's not a full day commitment.

    CONGRATULATIONS ... AMAZING WIN. I think 50 Grand might be the single biggest win by a member of this board that does not include table games.

    If you don't mind me asking, what are you planing on doing with the winnings? Keep it as future gambling budget for the next 10 or 20 Vegas trips, buy something nice like a car or simply add it to your savings?

    Amazing! Congratulations!!!

    How nervous were you with one number to go? Or did you even notice since it was electronic? What number was the final call?
