Just say "Fill ”˜er up!" With the high price of gasoline, casinos are attracting our attention with more gas card promotions this month.

Earn free gas at Terrible’s Hotel and Casino. Earn 1,000 points playing slots, video poker or keno any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday in the month of October and receive $5 in gas for free. No redemption of any points is necessary. The gas voucher must then be redeemed at any Terrible’s gas station.

Earn or win free gas cards through Oct.30 at the Palms Casino. Redeem Club Palms points earned in October for pre-paid gas cards. Every 600 points is worth $1 in purchase value. Gas card denominations are available in $10, $25 and $50 amounts. Gas cards cannot be earned playing on 100%+ or full pay video poker machines.

Club Palms members can also earn entries into daily drawings. There will be a total of 3,000 winners through the duration of the promotion — 100 winners daily and $4,185 in gas cards. Gas card denominations range from $5 to $50. Visit the Club Palms booth for complete details on how to earn drawing entries.

Not to be left out, Cannery and Rampart casinos are also offering $10 gas cards on Tuesdays this month. Earn 500 same day points at the Cannery or 400 same day points at Rampart on any Tuesday and pick up a free $10 gas card without redeeming any points. There is a limit of one gas card at each location per Tuesday.

Downtown, the El Cortez always has $10 gas cards available for jackpot winners (as posted in the casino) in lieu of accepting the monthly promotional gift. This month the giveaway is a logo jacket, but you may opt for the $10 gas card instead.

After you fill up, drive to the Suncoast this month for the annual "$250,000 Pumpkin Patch Pick" during the month of October. There will be two drawings every Thursday in October at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Ten winners at each drawing will select a pumpkin worth from $1,000 to $10,000 in cash. Players can earn drawing tickets throughout the casino. See the Club Coast booth for details. In addition, Club Coast members will earn double points (at Suncoast only) from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m. on drawing days.

Remember, luck seems to come to those who prepare for it.
