Working our way towards summer, which officially starts this week, casinos around Nevada are turning up the heat with their fun and rewarding promotions.

There are only two more weeks to head for downtown Las Vegas to earn entries for the Fitzgeralds Casino & Holiday Inn Lexus RX 300 giveaway. The winner will be selected on July 7 at 7 p.m. Fitzgeralds Club members receive one free entry each day they swipe their Fitzgeralds cards at a promotional kiosk, and five additional entries for each O’Lucky Buck earned while playing slots, table games or live keno.

The 11 winners of the Santa Fe Station Hotel Casino “Trucks & Bucks” drawing held every Saturday in June at 8:15 p.m. will take home a Ford truck or part of the $25,000 in weekly cash prizes. Receive entries for every 100 Boarding Pass points earned or for every hand-paid jackpot.

Avi Hotel & Casino in Laughlin gives you a chance to win $100,000 cash in its “Scratch Card Giveaway” in June and July. Receive scratch cards with any hand-paid jackpot of $100 or more and when you hit any blackjack with a $10 minimum bet. Whether your scratch card is a winner or not, fill out the back of the card and drop it in the drum for a chance to win a Sea Doo Challenger, twin engine boat.

Players using a Fitzgeralds Card in Reno can still win the July 7th drawing for a 2001 Lexus SUV. Receive drawing entries for every 20 O’Lucky Cents earned while playing slots, table games and keno. Just swipe your card at a kiosk and be automatically entered for your play. If the winner is present at the drawing, an additional $1,000 bonus will be awarded.

The Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno has given away millions of dollars in cash and prizes and there’s more to win in their Bucks & Benz Slot Giveaway.
