With enhanced safety and health protocols in place and masks being worn by both employees and customers, Southern Nevada casinos remain open and are ramping up promotions during July and throughout the summer to draw people inside.
Last week, we discussed some Las Vegas “Staycation” promotions. There are other properties offering those who don’t want to fly an opportunity to get away for a day or two.
If you want to take a quick trip outside the Las Vegas valley, Mesquite is an option. The CasaBlanca is offering the following promotions:
• Summer of Fun Giveaway: The resort gives players a few options to come up this month. On Tuesdays earn two-times slot points. Every 20 minutes Friday through Sunday, one player will $100 between 3-9 p.m. If you earn 100 slot points on Thursdays, you get to keep your points while also receiving a gift featuring the CasaBlanca’s logo on it.
• $59 Room and Golf Summer Package: You can practice some social distancing on the golf course in Mesquite. For $59 you can get a room, with no additional room charge for an extra guest, to go along with one round of golf at Palms Golf Club. If you want to add a partner for your golf round, you can do so for an additional $35 (call Palms golf to add guest at 702-346-4067 and pay at the golf course). This special is valid Sunday through Thursday and runs through Oct. 3.
Downtown, there’s plenty going on at the El Cortez this month.
