Jan 2, 2001 12:50 AM

Welcome 2001! A new year, a lot of new and exciting promotions.

During the month at Suncoast, Club Denaro players hitting designated jackpots win either a Suncoast jacket or a Suncoast sweatshirt. Hit a natural royal flush, maximum coins bet; top slot jackpot of 1,000 coins or more with maximum coins bet; hand paid dollar keno jackpot of $3,200 or more; hand paid quarter keno jackpot of $800 or more; or hand paid nickel keno jackpot of $200 or more and you’ll be eligible to receive a Suncoast jacket. Hit four natural aces with maximum coins bet; a top slot jackpot of 500 coins with maximum coins bet; a hand paid dollar keno jackpot of $1,600 or more; a hand paid quarter keno jackpot of $400 or more; or a hand paid nickel keno jackpot of $100 or more to receive a Suncoast sweatshirt.

Hit a 100-coin or higher jackpot on slots or video poker at the Barbary Coast and you’ll be going home with a new Barbary Coast T-shirt. Maximum coins must be played and slot personnel have to be notified – in others words, do not play off the hand until a slot attendant or supervisor has verified the jackpot and told you that it is okay to play.

The Las Vegas Club gives away jackets for qualifying jackpots. Players are eligible to receive a jacket by winning the top award jackpot, with maximum coins bet on all nickel, quarter, half-dollar, dollar and five-dollar machines. Players are also eligible by hitting 7 out of 7, 8 out of 8, 9 out of 9 or 10 out of 10 on nickel keno or by hitting 6 out of 6, 7 out of 7, 8 out of 8, 9 out of 9, or 10 out of 10 on quarter and above keno.

Nevada Palace offers a variety of daily specials throughout the month. Hit a straight flush in the suit of the day and receive a 100-coin bonus or hit a royal flush in the suit of the day and receive a 500-coin bonus. Players lucky enough to hit a sequential royal flush will be paid double the jackpot.

For the readers in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area, if you are not a member of Circus Circus’ (Reno) VIP Club, you’ll want to join now. New members of the VIP Club receive a scratch card upon joining and every scratch card is a guaranteed winner. Prizes include special gifts, dinners for two, and cash prizes of $1,000, $5,000, $50,000 and $100,000. Not only do new members receive the scratch cards, after earning their first 100 points, they will also receive a special gift. Personally, Circus Circus Reno casinos, especially since they remodeled, and added some excellent restaurants. The VIP Club is also one of the few players clubs in Reno that pays both cashback and comps.

I’d say it’s catching on — another property offering scratch cards is the Flamingo Reno with their Scratch Fever scratch cards. For every hand paid slot jackpot (max coins bet), four spot or greater win on live keno, bingo win, coffee shop purchase or designated table game play, players are awarded with one scratch card. Some of the Scratch Fever scratch card prizes include show tickets, room nights, gasoline, or free food or beverage. And each card is a winner. To add more excitement, each Friday, every redeemed scratch card is entered into a $500 weekly drawing, which is held at 7PM. Winners must be present.
