Terrible’s tries sports promo

Apr 25, 2005 4:04 AM

While the city eagerly awaits the opening of Wynn Las Vegas, scheduled for Thursday, there are still plenty of good promotions around to keep us busy.

Through Saturday at noon, all Terrible’s Player’s Club members placing $10 or higher sports book wagers (one ticket per wager) will receive upon request a Budweiser San Diego drawing ticket. The Budweiser San Diego trip giveaway will be held in the Terrible’s sports book on Saturday at noon. The trip winner does not need to be present. At the time of the drawing one winner will be selected along with two alternates. If winner is not reached by Terrible’s management or claims the prize in the sports book within 24 hours, Terrible’s will award the prize to first alternate and so on. The Budweiser San Diego prize includes round trip airfare for two, hotel accommodations, and two tickets Sea World.

Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and Arizona Charlie’s Decatur are hosting $104,000 Spring Fling dawings every Thursday through May 12. Five $300 winners and one $1,000 winner are awarded at every drawing. The grand prize drawing will be held on Thursday, May 12 at 8:30 p.m. Players can earn entries to the drawing by playing in the casino. Complete rules and details are posted at the Ultimate Rewards booth.

Take a spin for cash and prizes on the Santa Fe Station’s Moonlight Mystery Spin Wheel Monday through Friday through Saturday. Spin the wheel when you hit any of the following combinations between 2 a.m. and 9 a.m.: a suited blackjack, three pairs on Pai Gow, zero or double zero straight up on roulette or a field bet on craps when a 2 or 12 is rolled.

The Tropicana is the latest casino to get on board the poker train. Guests can try their hand at Texas Hold’em from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. daily. Various table limits are offered for novice to experienced players. $1-$3, $2-$6, and No Limit Texas Hold’em are spread daily. The room offers six poker tables located near the escalator to the MGM walkway across from the Harbor Bar. Each wall displays historic Las Vegas photos, as well as a 42-inch plasma television with continuous sports feed.

After starting, then canceling the promotion, the Westin Casuarina is back with another new sign-up promotion for new members who join the Player’s Club. They are currently offering a $40 for $20 sign up bonus (it was once $60 for $30 and for a short weekend back in March, they actually offered $600 for $300!) for new members. Guests may now buy-in for $20 and receive $40 in slot or video poker machine credits that must be played at least once through the machine before cashing out. The promotion is only for first time new members joining the club. Go today. No guarantees on how long this promotion may last again.

Apparently for security reasons, Club Palms at the Palms is now adding your photograph to slot club cards. Stop by the Club Palms booth for details.

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