holiday giveaway

Dec 25, 2006 12:59 AM

Boarding Pass and Amigo Club members can start off the New Year at Station Casinos with an opportunity to win their share of $1.5 million. Guests at any Station Casino or Fiesta property can earn entries for three cash drawings to be held on Friday, Dec. 29, Saturday, Dec. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 31. Ninety winners each night will win guaranteed cash prizes, and a chance to go home with up to $15,000 in cash. Entries are activated the day of each drawing by swiping Boarding Pass or Amigo cards at a Points Plus kiosk. Guests must be present to win. Drawings will be held at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station, Fiesta Rancho, Fiesta Henderson, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino, and Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa.

Players also can pick up a new Special Limited Edition Holiday Boarding Pass or Amigo card by Dec. 28 and receive up to $500 in free slot play.

"All you have to do is play your favorite slots or table games with your Boarding Pass for the chance to win," said Staci Columbo, vice president of marketing and advertising for Station Casinos. "Whether you’ve been a member for ten years or since yesterday, the Boarding Pass makes it easy for everyone to go home with free cash."

Complete rules and specific drawing locations are available at the Rewards Centers of all participating properties.

Through Dec. 30, players at Main Street Station downtown who earn 1,000 points in a day ($1,000 coin-in) or average a $20 table games bet for two hours can receive a free Coca-Cola Holiday Beanie Baby. Different styles are offered with a limit of one per day.

The December "Gift of the Month" at Imperial Palace is a free logo fleece blanket for all players who earn 200 points during 24 hours.

Starting in January gas cards are back at Fiesta Rancho. Earn 1,000 points on your Amigo Club card on any Tuesday in January and receive a $10 ARCO gas card. Players are eligible to earn up to 5 gas cards every Tuesday.

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