Earth Day Doings

Hi, friends! It’s the last full week of April--can you believe it? It will be time for barbeques, pool parties and camping before you know it. Speaking of all these outdoor activities, did you know that today is Earth Day? I think we all know what this day entails, but I would like to delve a little deeper and see how we can change the planet!

Let’s start with a little history about this day. The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, and is now celebrated annually in more than 192 countries (whoa)! The idea behind this day is to honor our Earth, promote a sense of peace, ...

Roaming Around Rome!

Hello, friends! I hope you have all had a wonderful week so far. I am very excited that summer is just around the corner. We have a lot of exciting events coming up, and I can’t wait to see them all unfold! In the meantime, I would like for us to continue our Whirl Win World Tour. Our last stop was Madrid and for our next stop, we’ll be getting a little saucy. We’re going to Rome, Italy!

Rome, also known as the “Eternal City” is one of the most beautiful places in the world and is full of such rich history. As popular as Rome is, however, it occurred to me that I do not know t...

The World's Game Show!

Recently, I was lucky enough to witness a very spectacular show. It was one full of excitement, impressive magic routines, and a lot of big winners. Do you know what I’m talking about yet? The World’s Game Show, of course! This was our twelfth game show to host, and it continues to get bigger and better each time. At 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, hundreds of loyal patrons packed the Global Event Center excitedly waiting for the Mardi Grad Jamboree Finale to begin.

I will get to the games soon, but first I want to highlight the amazing talent we were privileged enough to have w...

100,000 Grand Fans!

A few short months ago we celebrated a huge milestone- 75,000 likes on our Facebook page. It blew our minds that so many people wanted to share with us their stories and their thoughts as well as listen to what we had to say. While our page is constantly growing, we never could have imagined that in fewer than three months, our page would have grown to 100,000 likes! We are honored, flattered, happy and many, many more other wonderful feelings.

On a daily basis, I get to interact with you all and I consider myself very lucky to have that opportunity. I mean, if it weren’t for you, I w...

Spring breakin'

Hello, friends! I hope you are all doing wonderful. We’re twelve days into March, and I am staying hopeful that all of our snow days are behind us! I am particularly excited about this blog because I will be covering an event that we all look forward to--spring break! Now, I know some of you are thinking that spring break only applies to a certain group of people, such as teachers and students. While this is true, for some of us spring break can be taking one day off from work or spending a weekend treating ourselves to something a little out of the ordinary. No matter what length of time y...

Marvelous Madrid!

Well, hello there! I’m so happy it’s a new week, and I’m even happier that you all are back to read another blog of mine! As you may have noticed, the last few blogs have been centered on games we offer here. While those were exciting and informative, I’m going to switch it back to our Whirl Win World Tour. The first stop on the tour was London, and now we are moving way down south to Madrid!

I don’t know too much about Madrid, but when I think of Spain, Flamenco dancing, bulls and elaborate outfits with bright colors pop into my mind. These correlate with Spain for a good reas...

I'm not bluffing. Poker is one cool game.

Hello there! This past week has flown by, which has made me happy because I get to write to you all again. This is the last week in February! It feels like just yesterday we were ringing in the New year. A few blogs back I had asked someone to invent a time machine to slow time down. How are we doing on that?

This week, I would like to talk about Poker. Last week we completed our President’s Day Mini River Poker Tournament, and it was a huge success. It is because it was such a huge success that I want to spotlight our Poker Room and all it has to offer. I also want to touch on some f...

What's bigger than big? Our MegaKeno!

Happy Monday, everyone! It kind of seems like an oxymoron to include happy and Monday in the same sentence, right? We’re all about positive thinking here! Now down to business. In our blog last week, we talked about Bingo and this week we will be discussing another popular game- MegaKeno!

The game of Keno, if you are unfamiliar with it, is a game of chance similar to the lottery. It is based on the drawing of numbers that must correspond with selected numbers on cards. Our regular Keno offers a jackpot of $100,000, while our new MegaKeno has a jackpot of $2 million! We are very excite...

Bingo Blog-o!

Hello, everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. The Olympics officially started last week, and it has been pretty exciting so far! America has already gotten quite a few medals, which makes me beam with pride. This week’s blog will be over a game that would never make it into the Olympics, but is still an American favorite - Bingo!

Some of you may not know that we started out as a Bingo Hall. Yes, almost 23 years ago the doors of the original Bingo Hall opened under the name “Touso Ishto” meaning “Big Money.” At the time, the place seemed huge, and for being in the...

Living it up in London!

Hello there! Is anyone out there still reeling over that football game Sunday? I, personally, only watched it for the commercials. I’m one of those who asks, “Why are there so many football breaks during my commercial game?” I couldn’t help but notice the beating the Seahawks were putting down though. Quite a triumphant win for them!

This week’s blog is the first of a series of blogs concentrating on the cities in WinStar. We are going to call this series of blogs the Whirl Win World Tour. I challenge you to say that three times fast. The first city we will be highlighting is ...
