A new 26,000-square-foot bingo hall opened Nov. 8 at the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community’s Casino Arizona. The opening was marked with an official ribbon cutting that included Pima-Maricopa tribal officials, members of the Gaming Enterprise Board and casino executives and staff, according to a news release.
All bingo draws are digital in the 1,000-seat, state-of-the-art room, and players have the option of playing with an electronic bingo machine, in which the system can read up to 2000 cards at a time or traditionally by using a dauber and paper cards, the release said.
The bingo hall has a smoking section and an enclosed glass non-smoking section, as well as a full-service kitchen, large flat screen televisions and a four-sided arena-sized scoreboard.
The bingo hall showcases art created by members of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
To celebrate the opening, Casino Arizona launched the Bingo Bonus Days promotion. Through Dec. 7., registered Player Rewards Club members who play bingo will be entered into daily $1,000 drawings. On Dec. 8, one player will win a Ford Focus.
