Find your way to
the new Santa Fe!

Nov 27, 2006 1:45 AM

To celebrate the grand opening expansion at Santa Fe Station, including the all-new Feast Buffet opening Dec. 4, the casino will be offering double points to all Boarding Pass members from Dec. 1-24.

Besides the Feast Buffet, other new amenities opening over the next two months include the all-new state-of-the-art 259-seat race and sports book, featuring a five-screen, 114-foot video wall, more than 400 new slot/video poker machines, a new high-limit slot area and a new restaurant called the Turf Grill. A new poker room will be opening in the spring of 2007.

Sunset Station is running a scratch card promotion through Dec. 2. Boarding Pass members receive one scratch card for every 500 points earned ($500 coin-in on most machines). Every card is an instant winner of prizes including cash up to $1,000, table game match plays, mystery gifts, and up to 100,000 Boarding Pass points.

Starting this Friday, Michael Gaughan’s new South Point Casino will be running a gas card promotion through the month of December. Throughout the entire month, players can receive a $25 Chevron gas card for $12.50 worth of points (4,167 points.) Prior earned points qualify for this promotion too. While at press time we were unable to find out how many cards you can redeem for per day, Tom Mikovits, the director of marketing, told us it will be for "more than one."

The Mad Money Shopping Spree will be held at the Riviera from Dec. 14 - 18. Every Advantage Buck earned from April 1 through Dec.18 is equivalent to $1 in Mad Money. Mad Money is extra: It is above and beyond points and Advantage Bucks and completely free to the players. Mad Money can be used to purchase merchandise during the week of Dec.14-18. You must attend in person to redeem your Mad Money.

The November "Gift of the Month" at Imperial Palace is a free desk clock with mirror and photo holder for anyone who earns 200 points during 24 hours.

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