Jerry’s Nugget Casino cruises into spring with a $240,000 Cash and Cruiser Giveaway. Jerry’s will give away a guaranteed $45,000, plus a PT Cruiser (Motor Trend car of the year), a Dodge Neon and a new Sebring Coupe. In addition, every one of the 90 winners will take home a high-tech remote-control PT Cruiser.

Entry tickets will be given out starting April 1. Customers showing a players card at the More Club Center will get one free entry every week. Players can earn up to five entries daily. On slots, video poker and video keno, players earn one entry for every 100 bonus points accumulated. In the pit, players will get one entry with every 500 points.

Three drawings will be Thursday through Sunday, April 5 through 22, at 6:30, 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Three winners will be chosen at each drawing, except at the 10:30 p.m. drawings on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the promotion.

On Fridays, the 10:30 p.m. grand-prize winner is guaranteed $5,000 cash. The Friday grand-prize winner need not be present to win. The winner’s name and club number will be posted. If the prize isn’t claimed in 24 hours, the $5,000 is given away the next Friday.

At the drawing each Saturday (10:30 p.m.), the grand-prize winner gets a guaranteed $10,000 in cash, and must be present to win. Every Sunday during the promotion, Jerry’s Nugget awards: a PT Cruiser, April 8; a Dodge Neon, April 15 and a Sebring Coupe, April 22. These winners must be present. In addition to the grand prizes, winners will play the giant video wall for cash. Players can win up to $5,000 for every spin.
