While themed slot machines and virtual gaming attract today’s technology-savvy gamblers, successful casino operators understand that old-style games such as bingo are a vital part of the bottom line. And no casino operator takes care of his bingo players quite like the South Point’s Michael Gaughan, who has made a career of running casinos that give customers what they want. The South Point’s players are the target of frequent promotions for both regular and electronic bingo specials, but the $500,000 two-day Big-Game Bingo Super Gala (July 6-7) might be the most intense form of the game in town right now. Put it on your calendar for next year, then go out shopping for a pack of daubers. SouthPointCasino.com.
