A Las Vegas Double Bingo Celebration

Marking the third birthday of the bingo hall at Aliante Station Casino in Las Vegas, Bernice aka 'Aunt B' Gursch was there to celebrate her 100th birthday.

"This is the second year in a row that we are celebrating our anniversary with her birthday," said Aliante Station slot operations and bingo manager Mario Giannini. "She had such a great time that she wanted to celebrate her 100th here."

Gursch was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Las Vegas to move in with her nephew after a fall in 2004.

Bingo is one of her favorite pastimes and she has been known to play up to 32 bingo cards at one time with her sister using magnetic chips and a wand. Today she plays electronic bingo at Aliante Station.

Bingo Manager Mario Giannini said "We have a strong, tight-knit group of players," he said. "We know them by their first names and what they are buying before they come up to the window. They bring in food, surprise (the staff) with lunches and dinner and birthday cakes. We celebrate everything together."

"She's been playing with us since we opened," he said. "She's happy; she's smiling; she greets all the bingo team members when she arrives."

"We are glad she picked to celebrate with us at Aliante Station," Giannini said. "We feel really special, and that's why we are going above and beyond."
