Plenty of club action downtown

Jul 11, 2005 12:36 AM

Downtown’s El Cortez always provides exciting promotions and fun giveaways every month. For the month of July, players winning a jackpot of $200 or more on slots (nickel or lower denomination video poker or keno), or $300 or more on all other denominations on video poker, will receive a Hawaiian shirt, while supplies last. Each winner will also receive an entry into the Saturday night big screen TV and $500 (four of them) cash prize drawings. Players may opt for a $10 gas card in place of a shirt.

Also downtown, Binion’s Gambling Hall is giving away patriotic "Flag Ball Caps" for new club enrollees who earn 500 points within 24 hours of signing up for in July. Current customers can earn 500 points and receive a free ball cap, too. There is a limit of one per day, while supplies last, and no points are deducted from the player’s account for the cap.

Coast Casinos (Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, The Orleans and Suncoast) have extended the popular Visa card promotion from last month through July. Players accumulating 13,330 points (including any previously earned unredeemed points plus points accumulated throughout the month) can redeem the points for a $50 Visa Shopping Debit Card, which is a 25% bonus over the normal cash back of $40. Club members can receive up to $1,000 in Visa shopping cards through the month of July and the cards are transferable.

The Palms is always a popular casino for monthly promotions. During July, get in on the "$203,000 Super Hummer Giveaway." The Palms will award $1,000 each to 10 people via electronic drawings, held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. One of the winners will also receive one of 15 keys for the July 31 giveaway of a $53,000 Hummer. One free ticket may be obtained each day by swiping your Club Palms card, and unlimited additional tickets may be earned through play on slot, video poker, and keno machines. Electronic tickets expire following each Sunday evening’s drawing, when entries begin accumulating for the following weekend’s drawings. You must be present to win at the drawings.

Also at the Palms, Club Palms members using their cards Monday through Thursday will earn double points on select video poker, reel and video reel slot machines during July. (Note: some machines are excluded from the double points. Signs are posted on the ineligible machines.)

Sign up for a Boarding Pass card as a first-time member at Texas Station this month, then earn 100 points and receive a free gift. See the Boarding Pass promotions booth for complete details.
