Potawatomi Bingo Casino To Commemorate 20th Anniversary Throughout March

MILWAUKEE – When Potawatomi Bingo, as it was known then, opened its doors March 7, 1991, as a 46,000-square-foot, high-stakes bingo hall in the largely uninhabited Menomonee Valley in Milwaukee, there was no telling the level of success it would soon come to know.

Twenty years and two expansions later, Potawatomi Bingo Casino has become Wisconsin’s largest entertainment destination, attracting almost 6 million visitors annually.

To celebrate the Casino’s 20th anniversary this March, a number of exciting events and promotions will take place including:

  • Hundreds of Winners, Hundreds of Dollars Cash Giveaway
    • Hundreds will win $200. One lucky guest will win $20,000! March 1 to March 28.
  • Guess How Many Sports Car Giveaway
    • Guess how many B-13 bingo balls are in the sports car. Thursdays in March.
  • 20 Years of Bingo Celebration
    • Anniversary bingo bash sessions and special payouts. March 5 to March 12.
  • 20 Wines for $20 at Dream Dance Steak
    • Select $20 bottles of wine. Throughout March.
