What a "sweet" month for lovers and gambling lovers!

Tuscany Suites & Casino celebrates the Great Wine Giveaway that will conclude with a grand prize drawing on Feb. 14 with a romantic trip for two including airfare to Ironstone Vineyards, as well as lodging, food and beverages. From now through Feb. 14, players can collect a grand prize drawing ticket and also win a selection of bottled wines for every 1,000 points earned daily on their Tuscany Player’s Club card. Blackjack players with a suited blackjack (minimum $10 bet) also qualify. If you like, earn three bottles of wine and then "trade-up" for a better quality wine selection from house cellars. The grand prize drawing will be held at 7 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Additional prizes will be awarded and drawing contestants must be present to win. The complete rules are posted at the club booth.

This Monday, Casino MonteLago at Lake Las Vegas will begin giving away free Ethel M Chocolates.
