Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Boulder will feature the "Free Gas Frenzy" promotion now through July 22, by awarding 5,600 tanks of gasoline.

Ultimate Rewards Club members will earn drawing entries based on slot, video poker and electronic keno play and will be eligible to win one of the daily 100 free tanks of gas or one of the weekly free gas for a year prizes, announced American Casino & Entertainment Properties officials.

"Gas prices have already hit record levels and this summer they are forecasted to get even worse. We created ”˜Free Gas Frenzy’ to help Ultimate Rewards Club members beat the high prices at the pump," said Ron Lurie, executive vice president and general manager for Arizona Charlie’s Decatur.

Entries will be earned through tracked play on slots, video poker and electronic keno. Every 50 Action Cash points earned in a single day equals one entry.

After earning entries, players will be eligible for the following day’s drawing. To see if they are one of the 50 winners (per property) of one tank of gasoline, they must swipe their Ultimate Rewards card at a designated kiosk the following day between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. The tank of gasoline is awarded in the form of $40 cash (based on Department of Transportation information).

For the weekly "Free Gas for a Year" drawings, players must be present at the live drawing to win. Ultimate Rewards Club members can win one time per weekly drawing. The drawing for one year’s worth of gas will be as follows: 6:30 and 8:30 p.m., June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21.

The "Free Gas for a Year" is awarded in the form of $2,000 cash ($40 per tank x 50 weeks, based on Department of Transportation information).
