Jackets are a popular casino giveaway

Jan 8, 2002 12:37 AM

Jackets in January definitely seems to be the message that casinos are sending to their players this month. Last week we mentioned the jacket promotions at both the Suncoast and Plaza.  This week we’ll start with two more jacket promotions designed to keep you warm during chilly Las Vegas winter nights.

Downtown, at the Las Vegas Club, if you hit a top award slot jackpot this month, or a royal flush on any video poker machine, you’ll get a great looking leather and suede jacket as a gift.  You must have your new slot club card inserted at the time of your win. Yes, they do have a slot club now, called “The Ultimate Club,” and they have been starting off new member sign-ups with 4,000 free bonus points.  The redemption rate is 500 points equals $1 in cash back or $1.25 in comps.  For a first time redemption you must have a minimum of 5,000 or more total points in your account. Cash back can only be redeemed in increments of $5 or more.

You can also earn a logo jacket at either of the Fiesta’s, (Rancho or Henderson,) by accumulating a minimum of 20,000 points on your Amigo slot club card from now through January 31.  You can also win Fiesta wear, (sweatshirts and T-shirt’s,) by means of a 6:15 p.m. drawing every Friday and Saturday this month or hitting hand paid jackpots of $200 or more.

If you’d rather go for the cash instead of the jackets, head over to the Palms this month to try your luck on hitting a second royal flush within 24 hours of winning your first one. If you do, you’ll be rewarded with double pay for the second one. If you change denominations and manage to hit both royals within the 24 time span, the lesser of the two will be paid double. As always, make sure your slot club is inserted and that you call an attendant to verify your win.  With the advent of so many coin-less, ticket-pay machines, a royal flush doesn’t always automatically lock up the machines like they used too! (Unless it’s a taxable amount over $1199.)

If you’re thinking ahead to the Super Bowl in February, you might want to make your wager at Terrible’s.  You can get a free logo T-shirt on $20. or more Super Bowl bets.

Jackie Gaughan’s Gold Spike, downtown, is giving away a free stainless steel logo travel mug on all jackpots of $50 or more.  No limit, but only while supplies last.

There’s also an excellent point special kicking off the New Year at Sam’s Town during January.  Earn 300 slot club points on your Prime Rewards card on any Friday and receive a Firelight Seafood Buffet for your points. (That’s an incredible savings of 7,800 points!)

Until next week”¦Always remember”¦”Luck comes to those who prepare for it!”
