On December 23rd, 2022, Soaring Eagle announced a new strategic partnership that will bring a new way to play bingo in the Great Lake State.
Just before the end of the year, Soaring Eagle announced some exciting news for bingo fans. The Soaring Eagle, owned and operated by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Nation, partnered with Video King to bring Michigan players a whole new way to play bingo.
The new partnership will bring Bingo Treasures to the state. Bingo Treasures is a linked weekly bingo game that’s exclusive to Tribal Nations. Every week, Bingo Treasures offers players a $250k prize as well as a $2 million Weekly Millions jackpot prize. At a minimum, Bingo Treasures awards a Kia Rio every week if no jackpot is won.
The new online bingo venture is one of the first of its kind. Created by Video King and Parlay Games Inc in 2021, the online bingo game received certification from Gambling Laboratories International before it was allowed to launch. The game is technically a “Class II Bingo Game” as defined by Gambling Laboratories International, and features patented technologies that create an online bingo experience unlike any other.
“Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort is excited to bring Bingo Treasures to our properties, and we always enjoy working with partners that can offer new and exciting ways for our guests to game and have fun while doing so. We are in the ‘Entertainment Business’ and the partnership with Video King will be a welcomed bonus,” said Tanya Bardy, Advertising and PR Manager at Soaring Eagle.
Prairie Band Joins Soaring Eagle
The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation also formed a partnership with Video King to begin offering Bingo Treasures at the Prairie Band Casino & Resort, a casino and resort in Mayetta, Kansas. The announcement by Video King was made at the same time for both companies.
During the announcement, Tim Stuart, President & CEO, said he “is delighted that Soaring Eagle and Prairie Band, two long-term customers of our core bingo business, see the value of becoming a part of the Bingo Treasures network and have decided to join Jamul Casino as founding members. We are actively working with numerous other tribes to become a part of this new gambling vertical, and we look forward to the game launch in Q1 of 2023 and growing the Bingo Treasures network in 2023.”
