Terrible’s debuts free slot tourneys

Aug 7, 2007 2:29 AM

Terrible’s Hotel Casino proudly claims to be the first casino in Las Vegas to be offering a new, free, fully automated Slot Tournament now running through September 30. It allows players to compete and win around-the-clock each day. Terrible’s Players Club members can play three two-minute rounds per day. Prizes are awarded on a daily ($100 for 1st place) and weekly ($500 for 1st) basis, based on cumulative scores. Tournaments times are noon to midnight. Players may win one daily prize per week. Weekly tournaments begin Tuesdays and end the following Monday. Prizes are awarded based on the cumulative top seven scores during the tournament week. For more details visit the Players Club booth.

With the high cost of gasoline these days, more casinos are offering gasoline giveaways. Michael Gaughan’s South Point Casino continues ½ price gas gift card giveaways this month through Aug. 31. Earn $12.50 in points (earn 1 point for every dollar you play) and receive a $25 Chevron Gas Card. Unlike some promotions, in this case you must redeem the points to receive a gift card, but it’s still a good deal for players. There are some limitations on the number of cards you may earn. See the club booth for complete details.

Casino MonteLago at Lake Las Vegas is giving away free gas cards every Friday this month. Earn 500 natural points ($500 coin-in) and receive a free $20 gas card with no points deducted. There is a limit of one per person per Friday.

The Hard Rock will be giving away a Jesse Rooke Custom Bike on Labor Day, Monday, Sept.3. Other prizes will include custom made slot machines and over 20 players will win $100 in free slot play. Every 100 points earned between Aug. 1 and Sept. 1 gets you one ticket into the drawings. Plus, the first three customers who earn 300,000 points during the promotional dates will automatically win a custom made slot machine.

For table game players, hit 21 Blackjacks in a 24-hour period and receive a free logo jacket at the Fremont downtown. And if you buy a 21 game Keno ticket at $1 per game, you will receive a free stuffed frog.

The Venetian is paying double Grazie Gift Points Monday through Thursday this month and all MGM/Mirage properties are offering double Holiday Gift Shoppe points for all of August.

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