Foxwoods Reopens Bingo September 3rd
September 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
Foxwoods’ perennial favorite Bingo Hall is reopening next Thursday, September 3, 2020. You’ll see specifics in the release below but the Bingo Hall has been modified to ensure social distancing practices.
As the weather starts to cool down, Foxwoods Resort Casino is pleased to announce its Bingo Hall, one of the largest in the world, will reopen on Thursday, September 3. Following positive feedback and business levels, as well as extensive consultation with experts, the Bingo Hall will open with several modifications in place to ensure team members and guest safety.
The Bingo Hall, which will operate at a capacity reduced by 70 percent (950 total participants), will be open seven days a week with morning and evening sessions. The morning sessions will begin one hour earlier at 9:30 a.m. to provide additional cleaning time between sessions, with the evening sessions beginning at 6:30 p.m. The duration of each session will be reduced by 40 percent, spanning two hours and 30 minutes.
The Bingo Hall has been modified to ensure appropriate social distancing of at least 6-10 feet between players. The Bingo Hall has been divided into 14 “Zones.” After each Bingo session, participants are asked to remain seated until the caller announces the Zone where you are seated for departure. Guests are also asked not to change their seats during play.
All playing surfaces and video tablets will be regularly cleaned and disinfected according to strict sanitizing protocols. More than 20 sanitizing stations will be added in the hall and at all transaction booths, and the circulation of fresh air will be increased during session times. Masks are required at all times, and smoking is not allowed.
To reduce the number and frequency of interactions between guests and team members, midweek games will be reduced to a $10-$300 game and weekend games will be reduced to a $15-$700 game. Outside food and drink are not allowed but pre-packaged snacks and drinks, including bottled water, will be available from a kiosk for guests to purchase and enjoy.
