Let’s get right into it this week, with the focus on downtown promotions.
El Cortez: Club Cortez players can win up two $100 in free slot play by playing the “Prize is Right” Kiosk game. Pretty simple entry rules: Earn 300 slot base points within a day and swipe.
Players chances to multiply points this month fall on Sundays and Mondays. Earn 2x points on video poker, 5x keno & reels points, and 10x video reel points.
The D: You have the chance to be a hero with the “Save Sigma Derby” promotion at the D. Sigma Derby is a game predicated on quarters, so all you have to do is cash in some quarters in exchange for limited-edition Sigma Derby gear. The quarters are what will help the Sigma Derby machine continue its operation.
By bringing in one pound of quarters, you can get a shirt with the “I helped save Sigma Derby” logo on it; bring in three pounds of quarters and get a matching hat to go along with your shirt.
To participate you must be a Club One player. From there, all you have to do is take your quarters to the casino cage
Downtown Grand: Downtown Grand recently rolled out a few new promotions. The first incentivizes players who show up consistently: “Frequent Frenzy.” Each month, players can win up to $600 in free slot play. You increase your free slot play based on your average reward points earned per visit. For example: Earning 5,000+ points during 21-31 trips during the month can total $600 in free slot play; If you were to earn 250 points during the same 21-31 trips, you will earn $25 in free slot play.
The trips and average rewards points are based on a previous 30-day rolling period. The amounts of monthly trips range from 1-7 days, 8-20 days and 21-31 days. The “average reward points earned” figure range is broken up into 250 points, 750 points, 1,500 points, 2,500 points, 3,500 points and 5,000+ points.
Reels and video reels earn at a faster rate than multi-game machines (i.e. video poker, keno). Grand Tier Points are earned on slots from 12:01 a.m. — 11:59 p.m. daily. You must also redeem your rewards prior to 11:59 p.m. each day. For more info you can stop by the Grand Rewards booth.
“King of the Casino” Tournament gives slots and blackjack players a shot of winning $2,500 starting this Thursday, August 20 through Saturday. Just playing in the tournament alone has perks, as players can collect bonus tournament points, as well as second chance drawings.

Friday, there’s “5,000 bonus tournament point drawings” from noon through 7 p.m., with one winner being called each hour. One-hundred base points gets you one drawing ticket. The earning period begins at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and ends during Friday night’s final drawing.
The “Second Chance Drawing” takes place on Saturday after the tournament. Three winners will be called out during this second drawing. One-hundred base points amounts to one drawing ticket for this drawing as well. The entry time starts Thursday at 12:01 a.m. and ends during the final drawing on Saturday.
