Woman Wins $50,000 a Year after Missing Bingo Event Because of Heart Attack


Last year, a Massachusetts woman had to drop out of a Super Bingo tournament in Las Vegas because of a heart attack. A year later, she returned to settle the score, taking back $50,000 home.

The woman, identified as Pam, couldn’t wrap up her run at the bingo tournament at Plaza Hotel & Casino last year. While competing, she suddenly felt chest pain and had to be hospitalized. Rushed to Valley Hospital, the woman was diagnosed with a heart attack.

Luckily, Pam got better and, a year later, returned to Las Vegas for another go at the tournament she had to drop out from previously. Her luck turned around this time, as she won $50,000 from the event.

Plaza Hotel & Casino shared that this was the fourth time the woman has taken part in the October Super Bingo tournament.

The Massachusetts woman refused to disclose her full name. However, she can be seen rejoicing at her win on a video from the event. The video also highlights the scope of the event, which, for reference, attracted over a thousand people.

Plaza Hotel & Casino Continues to Host Exciting Bingo Events

The Super Bingo tournaments are a staple at the resort, with the next one set to take place from November 27 to 29.

This year’s schedule was announced in March, revealing what players can expect. The casino resort kicked off the new bingo season with a $160,000 event in April that featured nineteen $1,199 games and a $50,000 coverall on both days of the event.

Because of the popularity of these events, Plaza Hotel & Casino decided to host one each month after, excluding July and December. The upcoming event in November will therefore be the last Super Bingo tournament for 2023.

Players can learn more about these events and the signup packages on Plaza Hotel & Casino’s official website.

Speaking of bingo, the Arizona bingo situation recently heated up amid ongoing investigations from the government. Backed by veteran organizations, bingo proponents accused the government of trying to aggressively crack down on bingo technological aids – electronic bingo cards that make it easier for disabled players to enjoy bingo.

However, the government claims that it only sought to crack down on predatory illegal machines in hopes of protecting consumers in the state. Spokespeople explained that they are not trying to ban BTAs but rather identify illegal slots-like bingo machines.
