Got the itch? Get a scratch card at Stations!

Mar 19, 2002 1:50 AM

Everybody loves scratch cards. Whether it’s a lottery scratch ticket or even better, a casino scratch ticket, (because unlike the lotteries, you always get at least a little something from the casinos!) we all can’t wait to scratch!

Station Casino’s has the current itch and you can scratch to your heart’s delight when you hit a natural four of a kind in faces or aces on video poker machines from now through March 31. You’ll receive a scratch card for every four of a kind in jacks, queens, kings and/or aces at all six Station ­­locations, including Boulder, Green Valley Ranch, Palace, Santa Fe, Sunset or Texas. Over a million dollars worth of cash and prizes will be given away during the promotion with a chance to even win up to $1,000 instantly. Of course, most of the cash prizes will be in the $1, 2, 3, 5, and $10 variety, but there will be plenty of food bonuses, free meals and points given away to boot. Every card is a guaranteed winner. Just be sure to play with your Boarding Pass card at all times and call an attendant to verify your win before playing it off the machine. (Note: If you’re a brand new sign-up for a Boarding Pass card, you’ll also be an instant winner of some free play cash, possibly up to $100!)

Blackjack table players have some rare opportunities this month to win some cool casino logo wear and gifts. Play the pits at Fiesta Rancho and ask for a “Blackjack Card.” Have your card punched each time you hit a blackjack. Then, hit 10 blackjacks in a 48-hour time period and win a first level prize, currently a car flag kit. The second level prize is a super sweatshirt but you’ll need 20 blackjacks within the same time frame for that one. Minimum bet is $5 and you must be an Amigo Club member to qualify for the promotion. In addition, you can also collect a drawing ticket for each blackjack you hit and enter them in the 8:15 p.m. Friday night drawings for a casino logo jacket. Cool!

At Sam’s Town, beginning March 25, pit players can win a logo golf shirt by hitting 15 blackjacks within 24 hours in their “Blackjack Madness” promotion. There’s no limit to the number of shirts you can win. See the complete details on all promotions posted in the casinos and be sure you understand them before playing.

We’ll bring you the best of the Easter weekend promotions next week.

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