Dads get their shot at some extra cash and gifts this week in honor of Father’s Day, June 18.

The Riviera is giving all dads a free Father’s Day Drawing on June 18 at 5 p.m. Every 25 points earned between June 16-18 entitles the guys to one drawing ticket. The drawing will be held at the Players Club located next to the poker room and prizes include: a portable DVD player plus dinner for two at Kristofers, a Piel luggage set, a 2.5" handheld color TV, a Riviera leather duffle bag and a Riviera "goodie bag." All winners also receive two tickets to Splash. Dads who are new enrollees to the club automatically receive their first entry for free. See the Riviera Players Club for more details.

The Father’s Day weekend specials at Sam’s Town include six times points on all machines from June 17-18 and a free logo baseball cap to all players (including ladies) in bingo on Sunday, June 18.
