Look downtown for solid deals

Jan 9, 2006 1:17 AM

"Jackie’s January Golden Give-A-Way" is back at the downtown El Cortez. Teaming up with The Jewelers of Las Vegas, players at the El Cortez can win fine jewelry this month. Win a jackpot of $200 or more on slots or 5¡ or lower denomination video poker or live keno or $300 or more on all other denomination on video poker and receive a prize ticket. Five, 10 or 15 tickets can then be redeemed for solid gold jewelry items, or each ticket can be redeemed individually for a $10 gas card. Each winner will also receive an entry into the Saturday night drawings for cash and prizes.

Also downtown, Binion’s Gambling Hall is handing out loads of cash this month, and one lucky player will drive off in a new 2006 Dodge Charger. "January Cash and Car" drawings are held each Saturday in January through the 21st. A prize of $10,000 is given away each week —$5,000 at 7:20 p.m. and $5,000 at 9:20 p.m. with five $1,000 winners at each time. Customers may only win once per drawing and must be present to win. On January 28 at 8:20 p.m., $20,000 in cash and the 2006 Dodge Charger will be given away. The drum will be emptied after the last drawing on each Saturday night and the tickets will be secured and replaced in the drum for the final night’s drawing. Every 500 earned points gets a drawing ticket. Details are posted at Club Binion’s.

Earn 100 points in any one day ($100 coin-in on slots or $200 coin-in on video poker) Monday through Thursday and receive a free max spin on $1 Wheel of Fortune machines at Casino MonteLago. One spin per guest per day based on natural points only (no multipliers.)

Nevada Palace is giving away logo jackets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in January after earning 600 same day points. No points are deducted.

Collect a free denim logo shirt from the Wildfire Casino this month when you earn 1000 points in a day Monday through Friday. Again, no points are deducted. There is a limit of one shirt per person per week.

Harrah’s Entertainment begins integration of slot clubs this month. The former Caesars Entertainment Connection Club card rolls over into Harrah’s Total Rewards system beginning at Paris and Bally’s. Caesars Palace will follow suit in February.

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