Players seem to have a love/hate relationship about casino drawings. Some love them, some hate them. But as the saying goes, “You only need one ticket to win!”
You’ll find many drawing promotions wrapping up this month including: PT’s Entertainment Group, operator of PT’s and Sierra Gold taverns $25,000 Olympic Challenge. Through July 31, PT’s and Sierra Gold are giving their tavern guests the chance to win some amazing prizes (for a pub promotion these are huge!) in honor of the London Summer Olympics.
The grand prize, also known as “Gold Medal” is a Kawasaki STX-15F Jet Ski with trailer, valued at $12,500. The “Silver Medal” is a seven-night trip for two to Maui, valued at $7,500, including airfare, five-star resort hotel, and car rental. The ‘”Bronze Medal” is a four-night trip for two to Boston, valued at $5,000, including airfare, four-star resort hotel, Sam Adams Brewery Tour, and two tickets to a Red Sox baseball game.
To enter to win the Gold Medal prize, guests must hit a royal flush, four aces, or 7-spot or better in keno. Any four-of-a-kind in 2’s, 3’s, 4’s or 6-spot in keno receives an entry for the Silver Medal. Any four-of-a-kind in 5’s, kings or 5-spot in keno receives a Bronze Medal. The drawing and winners will be announced on FOX 5’s MORE Show between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Aug. 3.
Seven winners in “Cards ‘N’ Cash will be selected for the final drawing this Saturday at 8:15 p.m. for a shot at up to $4,000. Slot and table players are eligible and players can earn 10 times entries every Tuesday and Thursday. Visit the B Connected booth for complete drawing details.
Slot players can win instant prizes of free slot play and gas gift cards, or win entries into the Grand Prize drawing for a year’s worth of gas. The promotion runs through Aug. 31, or while supplies last. The final grand prize drawing is scheduled for Sept. 1 at 9 p.m. The winner may choose from $2,500 in free gas cards, $2,500 in free slot play or $2,500 in non-taxable “play-till-you-lose” promo chips. Best of all, it’s not necessary to be present to win!
The North Las Vegas casino has an interesting drawing promotion this month. “Pick Your Prize Drawings” are held every Friday from 8-11 p.m. every half hour. Players can win up to $1,000 at every drawing. There are different drums and players know what prizes are in each one. Players choose a drum to enter based on odds they like. Complete details are available at the club booth.
Tacos & Tequila will celebrate Tequila Day with Milagro Tequila specials all day long this Tuesday, July 24. Tequila lovers can enjoy Milagro Silver and throw back 2-for-1 Top Shelf Margaritas and Blueberry Smash cocktails as well as $5 Milagro Tequila shots. Served on the rocks with a salted rim, T&T’s Signature Top Shelf Margarita is blended with organic agave nectar, Grand Marnier and a house-made margarita mix topped with fresh lime juice.
The Blueberry Smash cocktail is a smooth concoction made with fresh lime and mint, muddled with blueberries and topped with spice from ginger beer. From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., summer tequila flights will also be available priced at $15.
The flights will include three shots of tequila and allow guests to choose from five different tequilas, including Jose Cuervo, Cabo Wabo, Don Julio, Avion and Patron. Hard-core fiesta goers will enjoy the “Macho Borracho” special with the option of six carne, carnitas or chicken tacos, six Sol beers and six Jose Cuervo shots, priced at $59. During all of the tequila mayhem, the restaurant will also offer $5 Jose Cuervo shots from 2 to 6 p.m.
Until next week…win a drawing. Maybe a shot of tequila will help do the trick! Good gaming and good luck!
