GRAND CASINO HINCKLEY FIRST IN THE UNITED STATES WITH LIVE VIDEO BINGO; NEW AND EXCITING TWIST TO GAME OF BINGO

 MINNEAPOLIS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians, owners of Grand Casinos Mille Lacs and Hinkley (Minn.), have introduced Live Video Bingo to Grand Casino Hinckley, and the entire United States. The first electronic game of its kind in the United States is now in operation at Grand Casino Hinckley and is already popular with Bingo afficianados.
 It's "Bingo Against The House," which means players play against the house, not other players, and there are more chances to win. Most Bingo games allow only one player to win each game. Not so with Live Video Bingo: every player can win at the same game, which provides even more fun, excitement and more action than any traditional Bingo game.
 Players receive four Bingo cards, each containing 20 numbers. Bets of up to five quarters on any or all of the four cards is permitted, with a maximum possible bet 20 coins. The numbers on each card are randomly selected by the machine. If a player doesn't like the numbers on the cards, players have the option to request all new cards. Bingo balls numbered 1 through 75 appear on a screen and drop at random. The numbers also appear on each player's electronic display panel. As balls drop, corresponding numbers on the players' cards are automatically marked off. Players are awarded prizes according to the number of dropped balls required for a player to Bingo. The pay schedule is attached to each machine, and also shown on the wall-mounted electronic display panel.
 Grand Casino Hinckley was also the first casino in the Western Hemisphere to offer the popular Royal Ascot video horse racing game, and the first in the world to offer Live Video Craps.
