Springtime, Easter, basketball and Megabucks! What a great combination!

At press time, the Megabucks jackpot continues to grow well over $16 million and players at Sam’s Town can win a special bonus, even if you’re not the next lucky big millionaire winner! If the mega-jackpot is hit anywhere in the state while you’re playing the Megabucks machines at Sam’s, all players will receive an $1,199 bonus instantly. Of course, you must have your Prime Rewards card inserted and be actively playing maximum coins at the time the jackpot hits. Complete details are available at the slot club booth and the promotion remains in effect until the current jackpot is hit.

Same place”¦different game. Video poker players at Sam’s Town can win a stuffed logo basketball on designated four of a kind hands in honor on March Madness, from Friday, March 29, through Saturday, March 30. Make sure to notify an attendant if you hit the winning hand. Penny and two-cent machines are excluded from the promotion and other restrictions apply to multi-hand games. Be sure to have your player’s card inserted and read the official rules.
