Slot play for cars, cruises

Mar 5, 2002 2:34 AM

The Venetian is currently offering a slot point competition to earn a Mexican Riviera Cruise. From now through April 15, the top 45 point earners automatically win a trip for two on a seven-day Mexican cruise. If you don’t make the top 45, you still have a chance to win the cruise by means of a second chance drawing. Every 50 points accumulated earns one drawing ticket. You keep all your points and points accrue for Grazie Gifts at the end of the year as well. Contact the Venetian Player’s Club for details at (702) 414-4116.

At Silverton, Player’s Club members can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend and win a vial of gold flakes for hitting any four of a kind or a suited blackjack. Offer is valid from Friday, March 15, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending Sunday, March 18, at 9 p.m. Triple slot club points will be in effect during the same time frame. (See list below for current schedule of all casino bonus point days during March.)
