Casino promos help fuel March Madness

Mar 12, 2002 5:58 AM

March Madness is heating up in the Sports Books and the casino floors are doing the same. It’s another great month with more opportunities to cash in on casino promotions and special offers.

In addition to the Big Screen-A-Day drawing giveaways already underway at the Orleans, a “St. Pat’s Pot O’ Cash” weekend has been added for Saturday, March 16, and Sunday, March 17.  A $1,000 cash drawing will take place seven times each day beginning at noon and continuing at every even hour through midnight. There are 16 uniquely different ways to earn drawing tickets including, but not limited to: signing up for Club Orleans; purchasing Irish Whiskey at the bars; cashing your paycheck; making a $20 or more purchase in the gift shop; or even just for ordering an ice cream sundae from Kate’s Korner. Random tickets will also be given to slot and table players as well. For a complete list of the rules and details, pick up a flier at the promotions booth.

Silverton has free slot and video poker tournaments this month. If you’re a Player’s Club member who has played within the last two months and earned at least a minimum of 20,000 lifetime points, you’re eligible to participate. Video poker tournaments will be held on March 12 and 26 and slots on March 19. It’s best to sign up in advance. The top prize in each event is $500.

The Treasure Chest Giveaways are back at both Arizona Charlie’s (Decatur and Boulder Highway,) this month through March 31. Players earn “Charlie Bucks” for hitting select, designated jackpots on slot and video poker machines. Earn ten and turn them in to select an envelope from the drum. Envelopes may contain cash, points, meals and more. Earn and save 20 “Charlie Bucks” and you may redeem them for a select group of special prizes. Don’t forget, it’s double cash back this month too, and five times cash back on March 17, if you earn a minimum of 5,000 points that day and cash out the same day as well.

Players at JW Marriott, (The Casino at the Resort at Summerlin,) who present their Club Razz card to the slot club booth this month are entitled to a two for one coupon for Madame Tussaud’s Interactive Wax Museum at the Venetian. It’s a $14.95 value and the coupon is good through March 31.

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