Wrap up these gifts!

Feb 14, 2005 3:51 AM

Go for the gifts! The casino trend lately has been to offer a gift for earning points or winning jackpots and several new promotions featuring one or the other have emerged this month.

Earn 10,000 points or hit a top award jackpot (royal flush, top slot award, etc.) at Sam’s Town from now through February 28 and receive a nice logo micro-suede jacket as a gift. Keep the earned points, too!

Sam’s Town is also offering six times points on President’s Day, Monday February 21, but only single points count towards the 10,000 points needed to earn the jacket. (Note: Check the listing at the conclusion of this column for a complete schedule of bonus point days and more Presidents’ Day multipliers.)

Downtown, both the Plaza and Vegas Club continue their monthly tradition of offering gifts for jackpots. At the Plaza, hit a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, video poker or keno (or $500 or more on bingo) and receive a free $10 Mobile/Exxon Gas Card good anywhere in the United States. At the Vegas Club, hit a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, video poker or keno and receive a free $10 Sears Gift Card. Both promotions are only available as long as gift card supplies last. (They often run out of gifts!)

Also downtown, new Horseshoe Club sign ups at Binion’s Horseshoe who earn 500 points in the first 24 hours of joining the club receive a free WSOP (World Series of Poker) tool kit during February.

Collect more gifts this month from the New Frontier. For a limited time, while supplies last, you can collect a Limoge-style Southwestern design hinged box for every 300 points earned within 24 hours on your player’s card. There are currently six different styles available including a covered wagon and a cactus.

Play for plasmas in the pit at Santa Fe Station. Win a 42-inch plasma screen TV complete with a home theater system. Earn drawing tickets by playing your favorite table games. Complete rules are posted in the pit. The drawings are held on Sundays through February 27 at 6:15 p.m.

Live keno players can pick up a 2-for-1 breakfast or brunch voucher for the Paradise Buffet at the Fremont Casino Hotel downtown with the purchase of 25 or more $1 games any day of the week from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Finally, the Gold Strike Casino is hosting its $10,000 Polar Bear Cash Giveaway. Ten $500 winners will be selected on Saturday, February 26, and another ten $500 winners will be chosen on Sunday, February 27. Earn one ticket for every 100 points of rated play using your Jean’s Cash & Comp Club card. See the promotion booth for details.
