The Downtown Grand is hosting a Tax Return Cashing Promotion now through April 15. Qualified participants will receive 5% back in free slot play. Participants can qualify one of two ways:
• Participants who cash their government issued tax return check.
• Participants who present an ATM withdraw receipt (from the Downtown Grand ATM) and income tax pre-paid debit card to cashier.
A minimum of $100 withdraw is required to receive 5% back in free slot play. A maximum of $100 will be issued in free slot play. The maximum amount of government issued tax return check that will be cashed is $5,000.
All qualified participants who met the criteria to participate in the promotion will automatically receive one drawing ticket into the $5,000 Cash Bonus Drawing to be held at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 15. Winners must be present to claim cash prizes of $2,500, $1,000, $750, $500 and $250.
Caesars Entertainment Corporation and Gamblit Gaming announced that the first skill-based gaming experience in the Las Vegas market has officially debuted for its initial field trial phase. Gamblit’s highly social and interactive game tables, called the ModelG, can host between two and four players for a head-to-head gaming experience. Each gaming terminal offers a unique, multi-player-multi-game machine with access to a shared 42-inch touch screen, plus a USB charging port, purse hook and two cup holders for each player.
The three game tables will initially feature two games at launch, Gamblit Poker and Cannonbeard’s Treasure. Gamblit Poker tests skill and speed, while allowing players to win up to 240x their bet in a single hand. Each player starts with two cards, followed by a single deck of cards shown in rapid succession in the middle of the table. Players have to quickly virtually grab the cards they need in order to complete the best possible poker hand.
Cannonbeard’s Treasure engages players in a fast-paced game of cards, skill and naval warfare. Similar to blackjack but on a whole new level, Cannonbeard’s Treasure challenges players to fill their hand without winning or busting, initiating a burndown. During the burndown, a set of additional cards will be dealt. The player who gets closest to the objective, without going over, wins a chest of gold.
Pending final regulatory approval, additional Gamblit games will be installed at various Caesars Entertainment properties throughout much of Nevada, including Caesars Palace, The LINQ Hotel & Casino and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Harrah’s Resort Southern California will be the first to debut the skill-based gaming tables in the state of California.
The casino has 99 bottles of “Jack” (Jack Daniels) on the wall to be given away on April 5, 8, 12 and 15 to the first 99 players who earn 2,000 base points on those dates between 5 and 9 p.m.
Until next week… good luck and good gaming!
