There is still time this week to collect a nice logo jacket from the Cannery or Rampart Casinos through tomorrow, Dec. 22. Earn 800 same day points at the Cannery or 750 points at Rampart and collect your jacket. You get the jacket and keep your points too, but there is a limit of one per customer per day.

Nevada Palace also has a jacket giveaway this month. Earn 400 points in any one day on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays and get a free Nevada Palace logo jacket, plus you keep the earned points. The casino will also host a "Christmas Cash Drawing" on Dec. 30 at 8 p.m. Earn one drawing ticket for every 100 points you earn on your Player’s Circle account. There will be 76 cash winners. Check with the promotions booth for complete drawing details.

Naughty Santa and his mistress have taken residence at the Plaza Hotel and Casino’s main entrance through Friday, Dec. 31, bearing gifts for anyone who pulls the handle at Santa’s gift bag slot machine. Beginning at 4 p.m. daily, guests are lining up for their free pull and a guaranteed prize, including a chance to win hundreds of dollars in the "Whirlwind of Cash" machine. Other prizes include Plaza signature T-shirts, dinner for two at Manetti’s Italian restaurant, tickets to the Comedy Zone, Stars of the Strip or Larry G. Jones and more. Guests are allowed one pull per day and their prizes are available for pick-up at the Barrick Play Club booth. All guests must be at least 21-years-old with valid identification. The casino is also running Players Choice again this month.
