May 29, 2006 1:57 AM

The Four Queens in downtown Las Vegas kicks off its 40th Anniversary celebration beginning June 1. Earn points on your Royal Players Club card through August 31 and receive gifts and drawing tickets towards the $40,000 Grand Prize Drawing to be held on September 3. Earn your first 40 points during the promotional dates and receive a free 40th Anniversary T-shirt.

When you reach 400 points during the promotional dates, you will receive a free Genuine Leather Day Planner, plus you will receive one $40,000 Grand Prize Drawing Ticket. Each additional 400 points earned receives another drawing ticket. When you reach a total of 2000 points during the promotional dates, you will receive a free Genuine Leather Jacket (choice of men’s or women’s) and a two-night complimentary stay at the Four Queens for the $40,000 Grand Prize Drawing on September 3, 2006.

Blackjack players can also earn the gifts and drawing tickets. (See the rules posted.) Prize money for the Grand Prize Drawing will be as follows: $20,000; $10,000; $5,000; $2,500; $1,500 and $1,000. Winners must be present.

Also downtown, "The Chicken" is back in Las Vegas and he’s playing Tic-Tac-Toe at Fitzgeralds. Starting June 1, Club Fitz members can play Tic-Tac-Toe with the chicken once daily. The promotion will run from noon to 8 p.m. daily through August 31. Besides a chance to win cash by beating the chicken, all daily participants will be entered for a nightly drawing at 8:30 p.m. at the First Floor Stage. All winners must be present to win the nightly drawings for cash and prizes.

On the Strip, the Flamingo Las Vegas will host weekly promotions beginning June 7 that feature the new Wheel of Fortune Special Edition Super Spin. The promotions take place each Wednesday in June from 4 to 8 p.m. Super Spin offers a large bonus wheel that is unlike anything ever seen on a casino floor. Nine separate player stations surround the wheel, so multiple players can participate in the same bonus game. The results are different for each player because each player station has its own wheel pointer that lands on a bonus total. Players can choose to be part of a particular wheel spin or wait for another spin. Bonus-eligible players have a 10-second countdown to participate in a wheel spin once another player has pressed the Spin button. The status of each player station is displayed on a giant plasma screen that is part of the overhead signage.

This unique game also offers player stations with extra-wide seats, so a spouse or friend can join in the fun. Wheel of Fortune Special Edition Super Spin is a 5-reel, 40-payline, 400-max credit penny MegaJackpots video slot which (at press time) currently boasts a top jackpot of over $5.4 million.

A maximum bet is not required to enter the bonus round, but a player must cover all lines and the bonus side bet to be eligible for the top jackpot. Popular Las Vegas Emcee, Kelly Flynn, will host the Flamingo promotions which will provide players with game instructions and giveaways including t-shirts, key chains, buffet passes and show tickets. Players must present their Total Rewards card to participate in the promotion.

Prizes will be awarded as follows, based on where the wheel lands during the bonus spins:

1000X’s Credit = key chain

2500X’s Credit = T-shirt

5000X’s Credit = 2 buffet tickets

10000X’s Credit = $25 EZ Pay ticket
