It may be the desert but Las Vegas winters can still make you shiver. The casinos do all they can during these chilly months to warm us up with winter wear promotions, special offers and giveaways.

All Coast Casinos are giving away "Jackets for Jackpots" in January. Through Jan. 31, play at Barbary Coast, Suncoast, Gold Coast or Orleans and if you hit a designated jackpot (top slot, video poker or video keno with maximum coins bet) you will receive "two jackets for one jackpot." All four properties are also honoring the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday by offering all players double points on Jan. 17.

Both the Plaza and Vegas Club downtown are giving away heavy-duty sweatshirts for jackpots during January. Hit a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, video poker or keno (or $500 or more on bingo at the Plaza) and win a free logo sweatshirt. Winners also receive a promotional ticket for Saturday night cash and prize drawings. Details are posted at the Barrick Play Club booths.

Collect a free fleece jacket from Nevada Palace during January. Play on any Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday throughout the month, earn 500 same-day points and pick up your jacket. The casino is also hosting Saturday night cash drawings this month, held at 8 p.m. Earn drawing tickets through your slot play and point earnings. Complete details are posted at the Player’s Circle club booth.

Both the Rampart and Cannery Casinos are giving away free logo fleece pullovers during January.

No points are deducted. Earn 500 same day points at the Cannery on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the pullover. There is a limit of one pullover per person per day.

Warm up with a hot cup of coffee from Casino MonteLago. The casino is giving away free coffee mugs to all Club Uno members over the next two weekends. No play or points are required but you must be a Club Uno member.
