SAN ANTONIO -- After remaining closed for over a year, Hilltop Bingo is once again open for business. The longstanding bingo hall located near the intersection of U.S. 181 and South Presa is under new ownership and has been revitalized.

Chris Keller, owner of I-35 Bingo and Alamo Bingo, leased the old Hilltop facility in order to reopen its historic doors. As part of the effort, Keller said the parking lot has been repaved, the bathrooms were renovated, the snack bar received a makeover, and a smoking room was put in place for the comfort of everyone.

“We wanted to fix things up and turn it back into a really nice place,” Keller said.

As for the bingo action, it’s starting to pick up. Keller admits the initial crowds have not been as large as expected, but is optimistic, saying the numbers are steadily increasing.

A common question at bingo halls now is whether electronics may be used, or if it’s “all-paper, all the time.” At Hilltop Bingo, there are no electronics permitted for tracking cards.

“That makes it fair,” Keller said. “It gives everyone an equal chance to win.”

Hilltop Bingo is a family-friendly environment, welcoming the whole family to come out. Children as young as 5 may even play their own cards.

“They just have to be able to handle the cards on their own,” Keller said. “Most 5-year-olds can do that.”

Hilltop Bingo is open seven days a week, and doors open at 5 p.m. each day. There are a total of 10 $500 games each night, and games begin at 7 p.m.

For more information, call Keller at 210-633-3322 or 210-946-0136.

I think its great to hear of a bingo hall re-opening, so many of them are closing down these days, however, I am not sure I'd agree with children as young as 5 playing bingo. I wish you luck with your new venture anyway. www.bingonewsvi ... More ›
