El Cortez hits mark

Apr 18, 2005 6:15 AM

As baseball season gets under way, the El Cortez is giving away a choice of either an official baseball hat (choice of teams) or an El Cortez logo polo shirt with every $200 or more jackpot on slots or $300 or more jackpot on video poker. Winners also receive an entry into the casino’s Saturday night drawings for a 52-inch HDTV and four $500 cash prizes.

Ellis Island will give away $5,000 cash on Saturday, April 30. Collect drawing tickets all month long. Earn 500 points on any machine any day in April and obtain your ticket from the kiosk. The drawing schedule and cash prizes will be given away on Saturday, April 30 as follows: $500 at noon and 2 p.m., $1,000 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., and $2,000 at 10 p.m. All 500 points must be earned on the same day and cannot be carried over from day to day. Drawing winners must be present to win.

In addition to regular cash back and comps, the Sahara is offering EZMoney (free play). Player’s Club members now earn $10 in EZMoney bonus free play for every 200 points earned each month. The promotion, which began on April 1, is ongoing until further notice. When you’ve earned 200 points, go to Club Sahara and a club representative will issue $10 in EZMoney. You can earn up to $50 a day and $1,500 per month maximum. New members also get $10 in EZMoney when joining. During April the casino is also hosting the "Dazzling Diamonds Giveaway." Every Wednesday and Saturday drawings are held at 4 p.m. across from Paco’s Bar & Grill and you must be present to win weekly drawings. See Club Sahara for complete entry details and rules.

The Card Sharks promotion wraps up at Fitzgeralds on April 19. Card Sharks is based on the popular TV game show of the 1970’s. The promotion offers new and established players the opportunity to receive entry tickets by playing their favorite table games and live keno. There will be two winners drawn beginning at 9 p.m.

Get a "surprise" free gift from the Imperial Palace this month when you earn 200 points during a single (24 hour) trip. No points are deducted from your account to receive the gift.
