As temperatures begin dipping below 100, there are some cool promotions going on around Nevada.

Hit a jackpot of 250 coins or higher on slots and video poker (max coins bet and no wild cards) at the Barbary Coast and win a sweatshirt (limit 3 per day).  And, there’s double points for club members at all four Coast Resorts (Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, The Orleans and Suncoast) on Labor Day, September 3 and Grandparents Day, September 9.

The Reserve is celebrating the end of summer with their $50,000 Easy Money Giveaway.  Start earning drawing entries on September 2 for each natural 4-of-a-kind or better on video poker, and for slot jackpots of $200 or more.  Two cash drawings will be held every Friday and Saturday at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m., beginning September 7, with winners taking home $2,500 each.  Then, on Sunday, September 30 at 6:15 p.m., the Grand Prize drawing winner gets $10,000.  The Reserve will also offer Triple Points to Club Reserve members on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in September.

Don’t forget The Reserve’s “Animal Adoption Auction” on September 4 & 5, starting at 6 p.m.  Club Reserve players can accumulate Auction Bucks for every point earned through the end of August to bid with.

And, the Reserve is also offering Free Meal Fridays.  Based on points earned, Club Reserve members get food discounts without having points deducted from their accounts.  Earn 350 points on Friday, receive a $7 discount at any restaurant; 500 points earns an $11 discount; 750 points earns a $15 discount; 1,000 points earns a $20 discount.  Points earned on Fridays can be redeemed for up to one week.

There are still four more days to “Relive the Legend” at Caesars Palace.  Members of Caesars Emperors Club receive one free entry each day.  Additional entries are awarded for every 35 club points earned while playing slots.  Daily drawings take place at 5 p.m., with three winners each having the chance to spin and win up to $3,500 in cash.  Entries are valid for that day’s drawing, only.

You could win a Hummer at Harrah’s Las Vegas.  Total Rewards members earning 50 points in one day receive an entry for the September 27 Grand Prize Drawing.  Every Hummer entry is also an entry into the Treasure Hunt Giveaway with the finalist drawing on October 22 and the final competition November 9-11.

Friday evenings are Slot Bonus Times at the Eldorado in Reno.   From 6-9 p.m., Eldorado Gold Card members earn one Slot Bonus Time buck for every 10 points accrued while playing $1 slot machines (in addition to earning Club Eldorado points).  Bonus bucks can be used for comps in Eldorado retail shops or for show tickets.
