This is probably a nice place for the locals to get together, but it sure isn't worth driving very far to visit. The atmosphere is that of a warehouse that is in the process of being converted to a casino. We kicked out 15 bucks...More

Hi, I think that it varies each day, I am not too sure as I do not play bingo, as I am a one arm bandit player. You could give the casino a call and find out, or just drop in.
