Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Just want to take this opportunity to thank you for reading about all the fun slot promotions around the State of Nevada during the past year. Sincere wishes for a wonderful and peaceful holiday season!

Here’s what’s happening in the most “happening” town in America through the end of December, and a glimpse into some upcoming promotions for the New Year.

Golden Gate is offering a 100 coin bonus for every natural four-of-a-kind in Queens (that’s the card, not the borough), through the end of the year.

Lady Luck is paying for your blackjacks in December”¦ get 10 blackjacks in 24 hours and win a $30 certificate for the Gift Shop.

You can Pump Up Your Jackpot at Texas Station through the end of December. Get a free Rebel gas card with every hand-paid jackpot and two free Rebel cards for every top jackpot.

Earn 5,000 points at the Plaza in December and walk out with a free American Flag towel, while supplies last. And, January 7-27, receive a 100 percent silk jacket with every jackpot of $200 or more.

One lucky Harrah’s player across the U.S. will win a one-week vacation every year for the rest of his or her life anywhere a Fairfield Resort is located. At Harrah’s Las Vegas, the “Lifetime of Vacations” will be offered in conjunction with the Total Rewards 2002 Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor Giveaway Promotion. From January 2 through March 31, 2002, guests can earn entries for the Kompressor to be given away in May 2002. Daily drawings will select a winner to be entered into the final drawing on May 29 for the Lifetime of Vacations. There’s lots of ways to earn drawing entries: a new sign-up for Harrah’s Total Rewards card, every $10 in cash-back redemption, every hand-paid jackpot, every $500 marker buy-in, every $5 or more hard-way win in craps, every ace/jack suited blackjack, every bet above $200 in the Race Book, every $10 or up keno bet, every show ticket purchased, every meal purchased at the Fresh Market Buffet, every hotel check-in, and every purchase of the sponsored liquor product at any bar.

The Great $200,000 Charlie Buck Giveaway is back again at Arizona Charlie’s. This marks the return of a casino promotion similar to the very popular Treasure Chest promotions of the past. Charlie Rewards Club members will receive Charlie Bucks for select combinations on slot, video poker, video keno, bingo and live keno games between January 14 and January 31. Redeem five Charlie Bucks for daily prizes, including cash bonuses and Arizona Charlie’s merchandise.
