Watch for Hilton’s ‘construction girls’

Sep 19, 2005 12:10 AM

The Las Vegas Hilton has made a significant change to its slot club by combining cash back and comps into one account. The literature indicates that approximately $125 coin-in equals $1 in comps or cash, but players are reporting that the rate appears to be lower, especially for video poker. In the meantime, as renovation at the Hilton gets under way, "construction girls" are roaming the casino and randomly distributing scratch cards. Each card is good for a prize that can be redeemed at the player’s club. Scratch cards are also distributed to table game players and prizes include tickets to David Brenner, tickets to Delisco, free buffets, T-shirts, key chains and more.

September is jacket month at the Rampart and Cannery Casinos. Earn 500 same day points on Mondays and Wednesdays to get your free logo jacket. Customers playing at the Cannery receive a denim style jacket and Rampart players receive a lightweight poplin jacket. There is a limit of one jacket per promotional day at both casinos. The Cannery will also be hosting random cash drawings on Sunday, September 25 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Winners will be randomly selected to win up to $500 while playing at the machines with their American Can Club inserted.

More random drawings are held at the Palms during the $105,000 Fall Days Slot Craze this month through September 29. At various times during certain days, players will be randomly selected to receive free slot play between $5 and $500. On Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, winners are selected at even-numbered hours between noon and midnight and are eligible to win between $5 and $500 in free slot play. On Saturdays, the hours are extended from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. You must have had your card inserted for at least five minutes and have earned at least 15 base points ($15 coin-in) prior to the random selection process to be eligible to win. Winning Club Palms numbers are posted and winners have 24 hours to claim their prize.

The number of casinos offering bonus (multiple) points during Monday Night Football has decreased dramatically this year.
