Don’t miss slot club perks

May 23, 2005 5:25 AM

While the Stratosphere’s rebate offer for new member sign-ups has been discontinued, new members can now participate in a new promotion, "You Win!" New members who sign up for the Ultimate Rewards card and earn between 1,000 and 7,500 points on the day of sign up and the following day, and subsequently have an overall loss (amount of loss is inconsequential) will receive offers in the mail for one to three free room nights (based on the number of points earned) for a return trip. New enrollees as well as established players can also request a "Gaming Coupon Book" once per week. The booklet is filled with good gaming offers, table game match-plays, a free entry into the daily tournament and more. Stop by the relocated club booth (near the tower escalators) for complete details.

The Stardust is running a series of $10,000 slot tournaments and anyone can participate. The tournament package is just $99 and includes three room nights and a chance at some nice cash prizes ranging from $2,500 for first place down to $50 for 100th place. The next tournaments are scheduled for June 6-8 and August 8-10.

Tower of TV’s is the giveaway drawing at Tuscany Casino this month. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Sundays through May 29 and players can earn drawing tickets by accumulating points in the casino. Complete details including the drawing times are posted at the Player’s Club booth.

Sunset Station is the place to play for Omaha High poker players during May. The poker room is giving away $200 cash every day. Drawings for $50 are held at 4, 5, 6, and 7 p.m. daily through next Tuesday. They draw until they get a winner. Receive two tickets by being the first 10 players for every new Omaha game and/or for a hand of queens full or better. You must be present to win.

The Lady Luck Casino has changed its sign-up promotion for new members joining the Mad Money Club. The new gift (formerly a coffee mug) has been changed to a sharp-looking "Welcome to Las Vegas" (replica of the famous sign) lapel/hat pin. Again, the promotion is only for first time new members who join the club.

Watch for great bonus point specials this weekend for Memorial Day such as six times points at Sam’s Town from May 28-30 and double points at all Coast Casinos (Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Orleans) on Monday, May 30. Ellis Island and both Fiesta’s (Henderson and Rancho) are running five times points on May 30. See the complete bonus point listings at the conclusion of this column.
