Hard Rock Hotel scratches its $100k itch

Feb 4, 2008 3:18 AM

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is giving Rockstar Club members the chance to scratch and win up to $100,000 cash during the casino’s Big Money Scratch Off running through Feb. 29. Players who earn 100 base points playing slots or video poker machines will receive a scratch card.

With every 500 base points earned thereafter, participants receive an additional scratch card. Scratch cards may include $100,000 cash, $50,000, $5,000, $1,000, plus Rockstar Cash and free gifts. Every card is a winner. All new Rockstar Players Club sign-ups will receive one bonus scratch card at the time of sign-up.

Ellis Island Casino and Brewery which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, is now offering 40x points on select machines, including some video poker machines.

They are also offering 6x points (on selected machines) every Tuesday and Sunday in addition to their standard 5x points every Friday. The points promotions will continue indefinitely or until further notice. Additional 40th anniversary promotions will be forthcoming over the next few weeks.

From Feb. 11-13, players at the El Cortez will receive a free heart-shaped box of See’s Candy for every 1,000 points earned each day, and you keep your points.

Effective this month, players at Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson can start redeeming points earned for free slot play at the rate of 600 points = $1 slot play. Fiestas have also divorced themselves from Station Casinos Jumbo Jackpots and are offering their own version of the mega-prize, called "Amigo Jackpot." It features a chance to win up to $25,000 every time you play. When the jackpot randomly hits, all active players receive $25 in free slot play.

Point wars among the local casinos are heating up again. Top award of the week (other than Ellis Island listed above) appears to be going to Sam’s Town this month offering 8x points all day on Thursday, Feb. 7 open to all players. That equates to .80 comp value or cashback. It’s your choice.

The $30,000 Reel Love Slot Tournament at the Las Vegas Hilton, Feb. 11-12, features a $199 entry fee and a $6,000 first place prize. For more information, call 1-800-457-3307.
