Easter week brings Easter sweets! Stock up on holiday chocolates from the El Cortez from March 22-25 when all Jackie’s Club members will receive a box of See’s Easter chocolates with every jackpot of $50 or more. You can select one of three different types. Save up three tickets and upgrade to a one-pound box of See’s candy. Be sure to save your jackpot on the screen and notify an attendant before playing it off to get your candy ticket voucher.

Also downtown, "Player’s Choice" is back at the Plaza this month. During March, hit a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, video poker or keno (or $500 or more on bingo) and receive your choice of a free $10 gift card for Mobile/Exxon, Blockbuster video, Darden restaurants or Sears. Winners also receive an entry into the Saturday night TV and cash drawings.

Barley’s Casino & Brewing Company in Henderson kicked off the $10,000 Cash EGGstravaganza on Monday. Drawings will be held weekly on Saturday at 8 p.m., starting on March 26 for $2,500 each night for the next four weeks. Players earn drawing tickets by playing their favorite slot, video poker, video reels and video keno and also by placing parlay wagers in the sports book. See the Barley’s Rewards Center for complete details.

Poker Palace in North Las Vegas is hosting one of its biggest promotions of the year this month. The $50,000 Guaranteed Giveaway runs now through April 2. Drawings are held every hour from 8 p.m. to midnight every Friday and Saturday with $1,000 given away in each drawing. One free entry per drawing is available for Gold Club members and players earn additional entries with certain slot, bingo and poker wins. Rules are posted in the casino.

One lucky blackjack player will win a brand new Ford Mustang from the Palms on April 4. Drawing tickets can be earned Monday through Thursday only. No drawing tickets will be issued Friday through Sunday. The drawing drum will be located in the pit area and players can earn drawing tickets when obtaining certain "21" hands. One ticket will be drawn from the drawing drum and the person whose Club Palms Card and drawing ticket number match that of the ticket will receive the car. Players must deposit their drawing tickets in drawing drum by 5:50 p.m. on April 4 to be eligible for the drawing.

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