The Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino has a new member sign-up promotion offering up to $1,000 rebate in initial losses. Downtown Grand is offering this rare gaming program now through the rest of the year, ending on Dec. 31.
“Get a Grand from the Grand” provides new members with up to $1,000 back for play on all reel and video reel games. Open to both visitors and Nevada residents, the promotion requires a minimum lloss of $50 to receive a rebate.
The rebate will be split up over three different redemption periods totaling 100% of player’s loss. Players will have their free slot play automatically loaded onto their My Points Downtown Grand card.
The rebate is awarded for slot play only (not video poker.) The first installment (in the form of downloadable slot play) is 50% of the overall loss within 24 hours, then two more 25% rebates each in successive weeks for Las Vegas locals. For non-locals, 50% is rebated within 24 hours and two 3-month (25% each) periods to follow. The freeplay then can also be used on video poker should you so desire. See the Downtown Grand Players Club for more information and official rules.
Throughout July, all Casino Club players have the opportunity to win a Cash Progressive Bonus while playing their favorite slot machines. The progressive bonus will hit by $25,000, and when it does, any active Club player will win $25 in free play. Once the bonus is hit, the progressive bonus will reset at $10,000. There will be an additional $1,000 free play progressive bonus that will start at $1,000 and must hit by $2,500. This bonus will also restart immediately after hitting and will hit on average three times per day.
Slot machine players will have the opportunity to win either bonus at any time just for being active players on the casino floor. There are no specific hand or reel combinations necessary to win the progressive bonus. All free play won is valid for seven days.
Throughout July is “Wild Wallet Wednesday.” Guests who earn 500 points will receive a leather wallet containing a mystery gift card worth up to $100. Mystery gift cards include Brio Tuscan Grill, Smiths, Apple iTunes, Shell Gas, Town Square, Lucille’s and more.
This Friday and Saturday, guests can play the “Anniversary Pick A Prize Kiosk Game.” Rewards Club members who earn 300 points will receive a kiosk swipe with a chance to win up to $5,000. Diamond, Platinum and Gold members will receive one free swipe each participating day.
Players can win wine on Wednesdays this month at the Craig Road location. Earn 200 points on Wednesdays and receive your choice of 1 bottle of red or white wine. The maximum is two gifts per player per promotional day.
Until next week…good luck and good gaming!
