Silverton Casino kicks off “Cruisin’ for Cabo & Cash,” a fun pull tab promotion this month.
Every day in August, Silverton Rewards Club members playing slots, video poker, live keno, table games and bingo have the chance to win cash and prizes by earning Cruisin’ for Cabo game pieces.
Players who earn 250 base points will receive one blue game piece worth up to $1,000 and players who earn 500 base points will receive one orange piece worth up to $5,000. Points must be earned during the same day during the promotional period between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.
Wednesdays and Thursdays in August are half-point earning days. Earn 125 base points to receive one blue Cabo game piece and 250 base points to receive one orange. Besides the top (or lesser) cash prizes, other possible rewards include cruises for two to Cabo, free slot play, dining offers, bottles of wine and mystery gifts.
Winning patrons will have until midnight the following day on which the game pieces were earned to redeem during normal club hours at Silverton Rewards Club.
‘D’ Las Vegas
The old Fitz chips are coming off the floor for good as part of the dramatic transformation from its former identity as Fitzgeralds Casino & Hotel. The Fitz chips will remain in play until Aug. 14 when the D stacks them up for the last time. In addition to the traditional Fitz chips, guests will have the opportunity to play with special edition pieces created for Don Barden, St. Patrick’s Day, Fremont Street Experience and the Millennium.
Gaming chips are highly collectable so now is the time to buy a few chips that will soon become extinct. You can save a memory of old Las Vegas too! The transition from Fitz chips is part of the overall changes to the gaming experience taking place at property.
Scheduled for completion in fall 2012, the first-floor modern casino will deliver the latest in slots and tables games manned by the D’s playful dancing dealers. The second floor will invite guests to step back in time to enjoy vintage slots and an original Vegas vibe, including the vintage Sigma Derby Horse Racing machines, already in action!
Players can earn scratch cards to win instant prizes for free slot play and gas gift cards or entries into the Grand Prize drawing for a year’s worth of gasoline. The promotion runs through Aug. 31, or while supplies last, with a final Grand Prize Drawing scheduled for Sept. 1 at 9 p.m.
The grand prize 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, players don’t have to be present to win!
Throughout August, Club Cortez players winning a jackpot of $200 or more on a slot machine, a $200 or more jackpot on a video poker five-cent or lower denomination machine, a $300 or more jackpot on a video poker 10-cent and higher or at least a $200 jackpot on live keno will receive their choice of a free gift card from Walgreens, Smith’s, Walmart, Shell and Chevron.
All jackpot winners will also receive an entry into the weekly Saturday night 40” LCD HDTV giveaway and $2,000 cash prize drawing. Stop by Club Cortez for additional information and to redeem tickets.
Look for some great bonus point days at Suncoast, offering 11x points on reels and slots and 7x points on video poker Aug. 17-18. The Gold Coast is running the same point special every Sunday in August.
Also, the Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Sam’s Town are offering a special Prime Rib and Shrimp buffet every Saturday in August. This buffet is being offered to B Connected members at an exclusive member price of $9.99, or $6 paid with the accumulated points. Non-B Connected members can enjoy the special buffet at regular Saturday dinner prices: (Orleans-$13.99; Gold Coast-$12.99; Suncoast-$14.99; Sam’s Town-$15.99).
In last week’s column I mentioned Senior Wednesday’s specials for guests over 50. The $30,000 in free slot tournaments (first entry free) and half point dining 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at select restaurants is in effect, but the extra bonus points on Wednesdays will not be. We learned of the change late last week.
Until next week…good gaming and good luck!
