Laughlin offers chance to Live Free for a Year

Aug 14, 2001 4:14 AM

I wrote about this promotion a while ago, but the Grand Prize drawing is approaching and it seemed a reminder was in order.  The Edgewater and Colorado Belle in Laughlin have teamed up to offer the grand prize winner of their “Live Free For a Year” promotion a monthly cash prize equivalent to his/her mortgage or rent, car, utility, insurance and gas expenses for a year.  The Grand Prize drawing will take place on August 26; must be present to win.  Earn drawing entries for: signing up for a free Player Card, a jackpot of $100 or more, $100 or more win in live Keno, check-in at the hotel, cashing a check for $500 or more, 100 or more cheque payout on Roulette, same suit blackjack with $5 minimum bet, 4-of-a-kind live Poker hand, one-roll proposition win on craps, a straight or better on Let It Ride, 3-of-a-kind or better on Caribbean Stud, full house or better on Pai Gow Poker.

Cool down and stock up in August at Laughlin’s Riverside Resort.  King of Clubs Slot Club members can earn their favorite six-packs during the 4th Annual 6-Pack Giveaway.  Guests using their King of Clubs cards earn the six-pack of their choice (Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, MGD, Miller Light and Riverside’s own light beer, or choose a six-pack cooler bag) by hitting a natural four-of-a-kind on quarter and up video poker machines with max coins bet, or by hitting a $300 or higher jackpot on quarter and up reel slots.

Every Monday through Thursday in August, at Virgin River in Mesquite, 10 randomly selected slot players having their Royalty Card inserted into one of the card readers will receive $200.

Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe is giving away a Toyota Highlander SUV on ­­September 2 at 9 p.m. and you have all month to get in on the action.  Five winners will be picked each day at 8 p.m. to qualify for the Grand Prize drawing (must be present to win daily drawings and Grand Prize).  All daily winners will be entered in the Highlander drawing, while daily non-drawn tickets go into a second drawing pool for a $5,000 cash prize (your presence is not necessary to win this second chance prize drawing).  Accumulate entry tickets by playing your favorite games, for all hand-paid jackpots, for all same-suited blackjacks and for dining in their four restaurants.

Every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday in August, at 2:15, 6:15 and 8:15 p.m., Sam’s Town will give 20 lucky winners a chance to grab as much cash as they can during the “Whirl Win of Cash” days (that’s 1080 winners).  Receive one drawing ticket for every 100 Prime Rewards points earned.

On the Strip, Riviera Player’s Club members have a chance to enter the next Lucky Duck Sweepstakes to be held on December 16.  Receive one entry for every 50 points earned on slot play through September 30.  There will be $24,000 in cash prizes, with the 1st Prize winner receiving $10,000.
