March is
big for promos

Feb 28, 2005 3:25 AM

Get ready for a big month in Las Vegas as the city prepares for NASCAR, March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day. March is jam-packed with table game promotions and plenty of slot and video poker promotions, too. Let’s get busy.

Start downtown at the El Cortez, where Player’s Choice is back. For the entire month of March, players winning a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, and $300 or more on video poker or live Keno will receive coupons that may be redeemed at Jackie’s Club for $10 Gift Cards for one of the following: Mobil/Exxon, Walgreens, Smith’s, Sears or Jackie’s Club slot bucks. Each winner will also receive an entry into the big Saturday night drawing for a chance to win a wide-screen HDTV. Second through fifth prizes take home $500 in cash or, if you are a Nevada resident, you can take home a video poker or slot machine instead of the cash.

More downtown promotions include the California Hotel’s $45,000 Slot Marathon Giveaway this month. The California is inviting players to its "Double Duty" Spring Slot and Video Poker Marathon throughout March. Winners will compete for $45,000 in cash and prizes. Complete details are posted at the Player’s Gold club booth.

On the Strip, Caesars Palace has a promotion that awards a windbreaker jacket. Earn 100 points on your Connection Card playing slots or tables in one trip and you receive a logo burgundy windbreaker. Keep the earned points, too.

Texas Station begins March Madness with a table games promotion. Earn drawing tickets while playing table games from March 1-25. Merchandise drawings will be held on March 11 and March 25 at 7 p.m. See the table games pit area for a complete list of rules and prizes being offered.

Free fun! Barley’s Casino & Brewery in Henderson is holding two free $1,000 video poker tournaments on Wednesday, March 9 and again on Wednesday, March 23. Players only need to show their Barley’s Ultimate Reward’s Card (card is free at the Reward’s Center) to play anytime between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. for a shot at collecting a share of the cash.

Remember, luck seems to come to those who prepare for it.
