Downtown is good spot to reel in the bargains

Jan 29, 2002 3:39 AM

The Fremont, downtown, is currently running a promotion on selected $1 reel slot machines, paying bonus gifts on jackpots of 20 coins or more. See a change attendant or floorperson to identify the selected machines and view your choice of gifts.

Also, downtown, the Four Queens is giving away free logo T-shirts if you’re a new slot club member sign-up and you earn a minimum of 40 points on your first day of play. Try the free play video poker machine near the entrances for a chance to win some additional free cash or prizes and you’ll also get a coupon sheet for even more discounts to use throughout the hotel casino. And if you’re 55 or older, you get 10 percent off at Magnolia’s (coffee shop) with their 55+ Club. Again, sign-up for that at the promotions booth as well.

Finally, there’s still time left for another good play in downtown, Las Vegas. The El Cortez Hotel and Casino, on 6th and Fremont, is offering a free logo jacket on all video poker royal flushes, or a top award slot jackpot. The El Cortez may not have the pizzazz of some of the newer Strip casinos, but they still have some of the best video poker pay tables in Las Vegas. You can also win a jacket by hitting 6 out of 6 or better on Keno.

The Riviera has added a bonus on all sequential royal flushes: Nickel machines $1,000; quarters $5,000; half-dollars $10,000; dollars $20,000 and five dollar machines pay an additional $50,000. Additional, meaning, on top of your royal flush jackpot, usually 4,000 coins. Also included are progressive royal flush jackpots.

Play the Fiesta Henderson on Tuesday, January 29th, and if you earn a minimum of 250 points that day, you’ll receive a free logo T-shirt. It’s a one-day special, so check at the promotions booth prior to playing for complete details.

As always, remember, “Luck seems to come to those who prepare for it!”
