Bingo is a game of chance where randomly-selected numbers are drawn and players match those numbers to those appearing on 5x5 matrices which are printed or electronically represented and are known as "cards." The first person to have a card where the drawn numbers form a specified pattern is the winner and calls out "Bingo!" to alert others to the win. Bingo is a game used for legalized gambling in some countries.
Contrary to the stereotype image that Bingo may remind some people of, Bingo is alive and well in Las Vegas and played by all ages. Bingo may not be the fastest way to generate a win, but the jackpots are large considering the cost to play. Bingo parlors are featured in many casinos in Las Vegas. In Nevada, bingo is usually offered mostly by casinos that cater to local gamblers, and not the famous tourist resorts. They will usually offer several two-hour sessions daily, with relatively modest stakes except for coverall jackpots. Station Casinos, a chain of locals-oriented casinos in Las Vegas, offers a special game each session that ties all of its properties together with a large progressive jackpot.
