After the New Year’s celebration, Las Vegas in January is traditionally a slow time up until Superbowl weekend. But there are still plenty of good casino promotions that are sure to please the players and gamblers all month long.

Downtown at the Fremont, you can win a collectible logo t-shirt with any jackpot of $1,000 or more. And if you’re earning a minimum of 100 points a day on your Players Gold card, you’ll earn a free buffet.

Over at the Palms Race and Sports Book, there’s a daily special Monday through Friday. On Mondays you’ll get a free Daily Racing Form; Tuesdays you can earn a free lunch; Wednesdays and Fridays feature is a free $1,000 handicapping contest; Thursdays will get you a free t-shirt with any $20 parlay card wager; and on Fridays you’ll get a free set of personal headphones to hear the games or races of your choice. Minimum wagers are required each day. (Nice Race and Sports Book, if you haven’t seen it, with lots of individual, personal television monitors.)

“Jackets for Jackpots” is the special promotion at Suncoast during the entire month of January. Hit a royal flush on any video poker machine, or 7 out of 7 on video keno, or a top slot jackpot, and you’ll win a free logo Suncoast, lined, windbreaker style jacket. Check the Bonus Point Days schedule below for some additional good days to try for your jacket. You may also note that the Coast Resorts, (Barbary, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Orleans,) bonus point days are all slightly different this month. One additional promotion they will all have in common this month is the radio station, KJUL double pay for four of a kind natural sevens, (7’s) on January 22nd. You must have a free KJUL sticker applied to your slot club card at each property, so stop by the booth prior to playing. As always, make sure to save your winning hand on the screen and turn on your change light until an attendant verifies your win!

The Plaza also has a jacket giveaway this month, from January 7 through the 27. May even be a little easier to get one. Any jackpot of $200 or more on any machine earns you a 100 percent silk logo jacket. Or, hit a jackpot of $100 or more on any Saturday and get a free chair massage.

Boulder Station is currently offering half point redemption for early bird diners before 6 p.m. at Pasta Palace, Guadalajara or The Broiler. Also, on any Friday this month, if you earn 300 points you’re entitled to a free Seafood Feast Dinner Buffet. You must earn the points and use the buffet voucher in the same day, but remember, it’s for Friday’s only.

Finally, Arizona Charlie’s, both locations, East (on Boulder Highway,) and West (on Decatur,) continue to offer triple cash back to new slot club members. As a new sign-up for a Charlie Card, you have three weeks to earn cash back at triple the rate up to a $100 maximum.

Until next week”¦Always remember, “Luck comes to those who prepare for it.”
