For being a relatively small little casino town, Laughlin, Nevada offers plenty of options for those of you wanting to play bingo.
This is due to the numerous casino tourists who drive into town, arrive via one of the fun charter flights into Laughlin, as well as the plenty of bingo patrons from the large retiree population across the river in Bullhead City, Arizona.
In fact, this gambling town on the banks of the Colorado River with eight casinos has two different bingo halls, found at the following casinos:
- Tropicana Laughlin
- Don Laughlin’s Riverside Hotel & Casino
Here’s a look at the bingo options available in Laughlin.
Tropicana Laughlin Bingo & Schedule
The only casino not located on the Colorado River, the Tropicana Laughlin Hotel & Casino is a big white contemporary resort across Laughlin’s main drag, (S. Casino Drive).
The spacious bingo room is located on the south end of the resort, and has big windows that overlook the casinos and river to the east.
Located on the main casino floor, the big open room offers padded seating, high ceilings, plenty of TV monitors showing the numbers, and is well lit.
There is complimentary drink non-alcoholic beverages available at a self-service stand. You can also order alcoholic drinks.
Tropicana Laughlin Bingo Schedule
Bingo games run seven days a week here, with seven sessions daily. The room opens at 8:30 AM, with the first game at 9 AM.
They start selling packets a half an hour before each session. Arrive early to get a seat up front, as I was there pretty early and some obvious regulars were setting up their daubers and good luck charms well in advance of the game.
The bingo schedule is as follows:
- 9 AM
- 11 AM
- 1 PM
- 3 PM
- 5 PM
- 7 PM
- 9 PM

Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort & Hotel & Casino Bingo
Of the eight casinos in Laughlin, the Riverside has the most casino floor space. The town’s original casino, the Riverside has their “Bingo Paradise,” room, with games running seven days a week.
Located on the second floor of the casino, the room has space for 330 players and has a bar and deli.
There are seven sessions daily:
- 9 AM
- 11 AM
- 1 PM
- 3 PM
- 5 PM
- 7:30 PM
- 11 PM
Each session has at least 12 games, with the 7:30 session boasting 17 games (14 games plus three specials). At the 7:30 game, a 50 numbers or less coverall gets you $4,000.
The 9 AM and 5 PM sessions are each a “membership session,” meaning you have to have the resort’s King of Clubs Players Card.

Golden Nugget Laughlin Bingo
While the Golden Nugget Laughlin’s sister property in Atlantic City has a popular bingo game, the Laughlin Golden Nugget does not have a bingo hall. Similarly there aren’t bingo games at the Aquarius nor the Edgewater casinos in Laughlin.
Laughlin River Lodge Hotel & Casino Bingo
The resort on the southern end of town (before you get to Harrah’s Laughlin), used to have games daily, starting at 9 AM. However they no longer offer bingo (even though there is a page on their website about it).
Avi Resort & Casino Bingo
A casualty of Covid, the bingo room at the resort 15 miles south of Laughlin never re-opened after shuttering during the pandemic.
The bingo page on Avi Resort & Casino’s website says the bingo hall is permanently closed.
