Jan 23, 2001 10:19 AM

Head to downtown Las Vegas and gas up at the Plaza! No, they haven’t added a gas station, but they’re offering a new promotion.

Through Feb. 10, #1 Main Club members can earn free gas in the Gas & Go promotion. Qualifying is easy. Whether you play nickel or five-dollar machines, as long as you’re a club member, you’re eligible.

Players winning two $100 or greater jackpots on nickel or quarter slots or two $200 or greater jackpots on nickel or quarter video poker or keno will get a $10 gas card. Half dollar and dollar players hitting just one $200 or greater jackpot on slots or a $400 or greater jackpot on video poker or keno get a $10 gas card. Win a $1,000 or greater jackpot on $5 slots or a $2,000 or greater jackpot on $5 video poker or keno and receive a $50 gas card.

Players must notify slot floor personnel for verification of win to be eligible for a gas card bonus. Gas cards are good across the United States at any Mobil or Exxon station and may be used for gas as well as merchandise sold in the stores – including sundries, beer and cigarettes.

In honor of this tradition Circus Circus will hand out "Lucky Money" envelopes to guests on the casino floor each day, Jan. 25 through 31. Guests receiving the "Lucky Money" may receive a variety of gifts in their envelope, including cash, free meals and discounts.
