Sky Ute’s hot promos

Jul 31, 2007 12:15 AM

The Sky Ute Casino in Ignacio, Colorado, the state’s only casino that’s open 24 hours a day, has some intriguing promotions planned for August. Here’s a rundown.

Beginning Aug. 1, players can win $20 just by using their Club Sky Ute Card to play on the slots. Every time anyone wins a jackpot worth $1,000 or more, the Player´s Center will do a random carded slot drawing and pick five lucky winners — those winners will instantly win a $20 coupon to be redeemed for coin.

A large "thermometer" will be located in the lobby so customers can keep a running tally on how much money has been given away. Once $8,500 has been given away, the promotion is over.

One lucky person in August is going to have his or her dream granted; up to $25,000. Beginning Aug. 1, accumulate points on your Club Sky Ute Card to be redeemed for entry tickets: every 100 points earned gets one entry ticket. Then, on Sept. 29, 10 finalists will be picked. Beginning at noon, and continuing every hour on the hour until 9 p.m., a finalist will be called and that finalist must be present to qualify. At 9 p.m., all 10 finalists will read their dreams out loud. One finalist will become the grand prize winner and the Sky Ute Casino Genie will make their dreams a reality.

Celebrate the start of football season with Football Mania. Play the slots every Monday and Tuesday from 5-8 p.m. while using a Club Sky Ute Card and you could be picked as a random hourly winner. Hourly winners will get the chance to win up to $300 in cash and qualify for the grand prize drawing. The drawing will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 8 p.m. The winner will win two tickets to a professional football game, hotel accommodations, and gift certificates for dinner.
