Play your favorite slot, video poker or video keno machine and receive drawing tickets for hitting selective jackpots.

Similarly, Suncoast will host its cash drawings on April 20. Earn drawing tickets the same way from April 17-20. The same prizes and buffet discount are being offered plus the Suncoast only will be offering double points all day on all machines on April 20. The Suncoast drawing will be at 5 p.m.

Get a little tax relief at the Stardust. The casino will host tax relief drawings on the dreaded tax day, April 15. Play slots or tables to earn drawing tickets.

Harrah’s Las Vegas and the Rio wrap up the Hidden Jackpots/Finder’s Keepers promotion this week. Swipe your Total Rewards card at the special kiosk located at the main club booth for a chance to win free cash. The cash prizes range from $5 to $25,000. The contest literature promises that "1-10 will win a jackpot up to $25,000." A second chance card is given for another opportunity to win cash and prizes. The prize (if any) is revealed on the card about an hour after receiving it by means of a special tape that is applied to the card. The contest promotion runs through Friday. There is a limit of one swipe per day. New member sign-ups for a first-time Total Rewards card also receive a free T-shirt.

A new three month long casino promotion has kicked off at the New Frontier. The $30,000 Cash Frenzy gives away $250 every hour from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every Thursday through June 30. Rewards Club members receive one free entry per day and additional entries are earned through casino play. Ten drawings will be held each Thursday. Once the winning name is announced, the winner will have until 10 p.m. that same day to claim the prize from the casino cage. Any prizes unclaimed by the deadline will be forfeited.

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