Hawaii keiki could have told them what hotel has the fountains, what mall has the carousel and how to count cards in 21.

The Riviera is employing the latest technology to bring Bingo back to the Strip in six sessions a day. Fans of the game will want to check out the $200,000 Superstar Bingo tourney in October buy-ins $150 and rooms are $49.95 per night, double occupancy.
