'Slot Clubs are in the giving spirit'

Dec 5, 2000 5:58 AM

How would you like to wake up to a "White Christmas?" OK, so it’s not likely to happen here in Las Vegas -- unless you’re the winner of Silverton’s White Christmas giveaway.

One winner will have their house and yard completely "snowed over" for Christmas. The winner will be announced Dec. 22 on the morning show of local radio station KOOL 93.1. This promotion is open to Player’s Club members only, though no play is required for eligibility. Registration is simple. Stop by the club each day, beginning Dec. 10, and receive an entry.

Silverton is also offering holiday bonuses for Player’s Club members. They may redeem a comp for the buffet for 1,000 points (regularly starting at 3,200 points) through Dec. 21. While dining, drop off your holiday gifts at the Player’s Club and they’ll wrap them for free (begins Dec. 11).

Silverton’s Player’s Club members get free monthly coupons in addition to eligibility in these promotions. This month’s coupons include a $5 table games match play, buy one-get one free buffet, free Santa’s snack glass of eggnog and two cookies, and a $25 gift certificate to the Belz Outlet Mall when hitting a four-of-a-kind in 10s.

Key Largo is in the giving spirit this month. Player’s Club members who bring in a new unwrapped toy between Dec. 17 and 22 will receive 500 bonus points. The new toys collected go to charity. Player’s Club members are eligible for the bonus only once, regardless of the number of toys donated.

At the Atlantis in Reno, Club Paradise members can receive cash bonuses in the "Card of the Day" Cash Bash Bonus promotion, running Sunday through Thursday until Dec. 24. Players hitting a natural four-of-a-kind in the card of the day are awarded with the following: nickel players receive a $5 bonus; quarter players, a $10 bonus; dollar players, a $25 bonus; $5 players, a $50 bonus; $10 players, a $75 bonus; and $25 players, a $125 bonus.

Every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Club Paradise members can join the free slot tournament. Each entrant receives five minutes of play on a tournament machine. All scores are tallied at the end of the tournament, winners determined and prizes awarded. Winners must be present to claim their prize. First place winner receives $100; second place, $75; third, $50; fourth, $25; fifth through ninth, dinner for two at the Purple Parrot Restaurant; 10th through 14th, breakfast in Toucan Charlie’s Buffet and Grille; and 15th through 20th, a gift certificate for a pizza at Café Alfresco. And it’s all for free!

The Pioneer in Laughlin celebrates Christmas every day by giving away cash, comps and prizes through Dec. 24, with their "24 Days of Christmas." Round Up Club members receive a spin on the "Prize O’ Plenty" Wheel each time they earn 500 bonus points. Some prizes on the wheel are: dinner for two in the Boardinghouse, brunch for two in Granny’s, a $75 comp to Granny’s Gourmet, a roll of quarters, a $25 shopping spree in the gift shop, $50 in cash, $100 in cash, Pioneer hats, shirts and mouse pads, an insulated mug, suspenders, a coffee mug, or buffet for two.
