The four-round bingo event challenges partygoers to be the first to complete a line, two lines and a ‘full house’ for their chance to win prizes. You might find yourself going home with a Henry Hoover, a celebrity cardboard cutout, or even a giant stuffed toy.

At the Christmas Special, we’re expecting Mariah Carey sing-offs, novelty Christmas presents, elf costumes and maybe an eggnog or two. You’ll want to get all the gang together for this one, and create some magical Christmas memories with your friends. Just don’t be surprised if you find yourself dancing on the table by the end of the night.

Bongo’s Bingo Dubai, Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, 8pm onwards, Thursday December 12, from Dhs100.
