Casinos got gas!

Sep 12, 2005 12:43 AM

Casino players can put a dent in the high gas prices by taking advantage of gasoline promotions this month. Earn 1,000 points on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays through September at Terrible’s Hotel Casino and get $5 in free gas from any Terrible Herbst Gas Stations. No points are deducted from the player’s account and you can collect one gas voucher per person per promotional day throughout September. Terrible’s also issues gas vouchers by redeeming your points.

Downtown, the Plaza and El Cortez can help make refueling a little easier, too. The Plaza will give you a $10 Mobil or Exxon gas card on jackpots over $200. The cards are available throughout September while supplies last; the El Cortez Mobil/Exxon cards are always available in lieu of receiving other promotional gifts. Details are posted in the casinos.

Both Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson will redeem your Amigo Club points for gas vouchers for specific gas stations, once per week, up to $25 in value.

On certain days, Rampart Casino will often do the same. In Jean, Nevada, the Gold Strike and Nevada Landing casinos will also issue gas vouchers in exchange for your points.

As Las Vegas temperatures begin to cool off, jacket promotions begin to heat up. Local casinos like the Bighorn and Longhorn are giving away logo jackets with jackpot wins of $500 or more this month.

The Cannery in North Las Vegas is giving away popular denim logo jackets on Mondays and Wednesdays during September when you earn 500 same-day points ($500 coin-in) on your American Can Club account. No points are deducted.

Casino cousin The Rampart in Summerlin can add to your collection of premium logo wear by earning 500 points ($2,000 coin-in) on Mondays and Wednesdays to receive a free poplin windbreaker logo jacket this month. Both the Cannery and Rampart allow players to earn one jacket per promotional day.

Celebrate Mexican Independence Day at the Las Vegas Hilton with a chance to win a new Honda Accord EX, a new Honda Odyssey EX, roundtrip airline tickets on Mexicana Airlines or promotional table game chips.
