How To Screw Up A Good Thing, Casino Del Sol-Style

Posted By on Mon, Jun 4, 2012 at 4:00 PM

In January we wrote about Casino del Sol's ridiculously bad decision to revamp its Cosmic Bingo event by, among other things, parting ways with fun and flirtatious drag queen MC Lucinda Holliday. The goal, casino officials said, was the revive a format that had gotten stale, which is hard to believe about something that involved a 6-foot-tall dude in a wig and dress holding a microphone with a fuzzy penis cover and encouraging grandmas to yell 'ohhhhhh, sixty-nine!'

Well, looks like instead of reviving it with these changes, Casino del Sol killed one of its most fun and unique entertainment options.

An email sent out to Club Sol members today quietly noted that this Saturday will be the final session of Cosmic Bingo. No details were provided as to why it is ending — other than the obvious, that the new version sucked eggs — but the message did ask people to come out for 'one last party.'

Thank you, no. I attended the first non-Lucinda Cosmic Bingo, and swore never to go again. Sounds like many other people followed suit, based on the still-coming-in posts to Lucinda's Facebook page. That, more than anything, is probably why Cosmic Bingo will be no longer.
