Effective immediately we are suspending our bingo program.
We have heard and understand the concerns of our players and the decision has been made to not have weekly bingo at this time.
For months our management team has pushed on, out of dedication to our players–but as Hawkeye Downs moves forward we need to increase our standards of hospitality and cannot continue playing as is.
All of us at Hawkeye Downs are grateful to those who have supported us–and we hope to see you at future events.
Thank you, have a great holiday season!
