New South Point club goes ‘coin-in’

Oct 30, 2006 4:07 AM

South Coast Casino is now South Point Casino. Boyd Gaming has sold the hotel to Michael Gaughan, the founder of the original Coast Casinos. The casino has initiated South Point Club, a new players club, based on coin-in rather than coin-out like Coast Casinos use. Players earn one point for every dollar played. Every 4,000 points can be redeemed for $12 in cashback or comps.

If you initially signed up for your Club Coast card at the South Coast, then all unredeemed points earned on that card from any Coast Casino will be transferred to your new South Point card but you will need to get a new card from South Point.

The 2006 Great Gift Wrap Up is a shopping extravaganza that any Harrah’s Total Rewards member who has played in Las Vegas in 2006 may participate in. Throughout the year, all Total Rewards members who play at any of 6 Las Vegas properties (Harrah’s, Bally’s, Caesars Palace, Paris, the Flamingo or the Rio) can earn bonus "Gift Points" on top of their Reward Credits. These Gift Points can then be redeemed for a wide variety of gifts during two separate weeklong shopping events in November and December. These events occur on: November 13 — 19 at Harrah’s Las Vegas and December 11- 17 at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. For more information, visit: www.greatgiftwrapup.com

The Silver Nugget Casino in North Las Vegas begins "Instant Winner Pull Tabs" on November 1 and continues until all 7,200 Pull Tabs have been depleted. All winning Pull Tabs are cash prizes ranging from $5 to $1000 and non-winning tabs are worth 50 slot club points. Pull Tabs are selected from a drum after earning designated points or winning live Bingo games. The complete rules are posted at the club booth.

Through November 22, Binion’s Gambling Hall downtown is hosting "50 More Reasons to Play at Binion’s." Four daily drawings are held at 4:20 p.m., 5:20 p.m., 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 p.m. for 5 - $50 cash prizes. All 20 winning tickets are eligible for the nightly $1,000 cash drawing held at 9:20 p.m. All winning entries from the daily drawings are also eligible for the grand prize drawing to be held on December 16 for a total of $80,300 in prizes with a top prize of $50,050. Participants earn drawing tickets by playing slots and table games, 200 points = 1 ticket. Winners must be present at all drawings to win.

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