St. Patrick’s Day is always a good time in Las Vegas. With a wee bit ”˜o luck, you may find your "pot of gold" this week.

Slots-A-Fun, located next door to its sister casino, Circus Circus, is paying cash bonuses on the Irish holiday. Hit a "shamrock" royal flush, actually, "clubs" (with max coins played) on any video poker machine and win a bonus as follows:

$100 on nickel machines

$200 on dime machines

$500 on quarter machines

$1,000 on dollar machines.

Blackjack players can win some "green" too. Collect a $250 cash bonus for 6-7-8 of Clubs with $5 minimum bet or $150 for 6-7-8 of Clubs when playing with a $3 minimum bet. These promotions run for 24 hours only, from midnight to midnight on March 17.
