Station Casinos brings back one of its most popular promotions this month with “Swipe and Win.” All guests can swipe their Boarding Pass after earning five points on Fridays and Saturdays in October and instantly win from the pool of cash and prizes.
Guests can also earn drawing entries all through October for the chance to “Spin and Win” for additional cash prizes every Sunday.

Entries may be earned daily by playing slots, video poker, keno, bingo and table games as well as with select race and sports wagers. Guests may swipe for 10 free drawing entries every day through Oct. 27, and entries earned during the week will be applied to drawings each Sunday at 4:15 and 8:15 p.m. Entries earned at one property do not carry over to the other properties; however guests are welcome to earn entries and become eligible at multiple properties.
Every Friday and Saturday, guests may swipe their Boarding Pass card at any Boarding Pass kiosk to win up to $10,000, free meals, hotel rooms, slot play, drawing entries and more. Guests can swipe at any Boarding Pass kiosk to receive their Swipe and Win prize instantly once they have earned five Boarding Pass points.
