St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until next week, but Casino MonteLago kicks off its "$25,000 Luck of the Irish" promotion this week featuring drawings every Friday and Saturday beginning March 11 at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Earn drawing tickets by playing all your favorites games. Win a share of $3,600 in cash and free slot play each night of the drawings. Special drawings will also be held on Easter Sunday, March 27, at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Details are posted at the Club Uno booth.

Rampart Casino in Summerlin and sister casino, the Cannery in North Las Vegas, are giving away lots of cash this month plus denim logo shirts. Pick up a free denim shirt on any Monday, Wednesday and Friday after earning 500 same-day points. There is a limit of one shirt per customer per day and you keep the earned points.

In addition, Rampart is featuring a $45,000 progressive cash drawing on Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. The jackpot starts out at $10,000 and 15 winners will be selected at each drawing for a total of 120 winners for the month. It starts with 500 envelopes placed in a drum. Each winner will have the option of taking $50 in cash or choosing an envelope. If they choose an envelope, they win the cash prize designated inside. If the jackpot envelope is not selected by the end of the 7 p.m. drawing each week, the jackpot increases by $10,000.

The drawing promotion is identical at the Cannery except the drawings will be held at 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Downtown, the California is celebrating its 30th anniversary by "dealing" out two new casino promotions to its players. Last week, we mentioned the $45,000 Slot and Video Poker Marathon (top 100 players who earn the most points in 72 hours win cash prizes from $50-$3,750.) They are also rolling out "Dice and Blackjack Madness" for table game players through March 31. Both blackjack and dice players will be playing for the limited edition of the California’s Anniversary T-shirt. Blackjack players will receive a "Madness" card to track their blackjacks within a 24-hour period beginning with the player’s first blackjack.

Stay tuned next week for more St. Patrick’s Day casino promotions!

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