Circus Circus unveils Players Club

Sep 18, 2007 1:10 AM

Circus Circus has announced its new player’s club, appropriately called, Circus Player’s Club. They are not part of the multi-property MGM/Mirage Player’s Club. The new club offers its members $5 cash back or $10 in free slot play for every 200 points earned. It takes $5 to earn one point on slots and $10 to earn one point on video poker, video blackjack and video keno. Earn 5000 points in a calendar year and receive an extra $50 in free slot play. Comp dollars are back and remain on an account until members choose to redeem them as long as they play the card at least once every 12 months.

Those among the first to get a new Circus Player’s Club card (the "One Club" card will continue to work) will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $5,000 cash grand prize to be given away Friday, Nov. 30. Club members also get a 10 percent discount at any Circus Circus retail outlet when presenting a card.

South Point club members can pick up a free champagne flute glass today or tomorrow, Sept 18 or 19 by showing the card at the promotion booth. Return next week, Sept. 25 or 26 and receive an additional free flute plus a bottle of Korbel Champagne.

Santa Fe Station is conducting a (potential) $60,000 Pit Shootout through Sept. 30. Daily drawings are held every hour from noon through 10 p.m. in the pit. One winner per hour will have the chance to play for $100 or $1,000 cash. It’s the player versus the dealer in a hand of blackjack, winner takes all.
