Jul 3, 2001 1:32 AM

Points, points, points ”¦ millions of ’em! That’s what the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas is giving away during their “Points Millionaire” promotion in July. Join the #1 Main Club on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and receive a free entry. For every 100 points earned, #1 Main Club members receive more entries. Accumulate as many entries as you can and then join the Plaza guests at the pool party on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. for the big drawing. The winner is awarded one million #1 Main Club points. That’s worth $2,000 in actual cash

The Plaza has spiced things up a bit more on Thursdays in July, when club members can also earn double points from 6 p.m. until midnight. Those points don’t go towards Millionaire entries, but they still earn players twice the regular club rewards. And, with double points, the pool party and Point Millionaires, the Plaza on Thursdays should be a pretty popular place to play.

Complete rules and regulations are at the Club Sahara Booth.
