This past weekend a group of Connecticut Bloggers had a meetup at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut for late night Bingo. Mohegan Sun has added this party-enhanced Bingo night as a way to bring out the party animal in us all.
The Uncas Ballroom was packed with young and old at this sold out Bingo event. Doors open for Bingo After Dark at 8 pm but the games don’t start until 10 pm. It was the hottest ticket in town that night. I was even approached by a die-hard Bingo fan who tried to buy my ticket. As the night worn on she was still sitting outside since no one wanted to give up their seat at this coveted event.
We have been to Bingo once before at Mohegan Sun and I immediately recognized Sue, the resident Bingo caller. Sue is a lot of fun and kept us entertained the whole night, all while reminding everyone about the rules and when to call out Bingo.
Before Bingo got started the room was entertained with music and dancers. Many in the crowd came up and joined in the fun on the dance floor. This group kept the partying going all night long. The ticket price included complimentary coffee and soft drinks.
Late Night Bingo features nine games with a total of $15,000 in cash given away.
The final game was the much anticipated Coverall with one person winning the whole $3,000 pot. No one at our table won Bingo but it sure was fun.
