Under the direction of new local management, the newly named Rampart Casino, in Summerlin (formerly known as the Regent or the Resort at Summerlin) is heating up with promotions galore. They promise that a new slot club is on the way starting May 1, but in the meantime you can try to collect double pay on Wednesdays in April by hitting a second video poker royal flush within 24 hours of your first. If you do, the second will be paid double, providing you’ve followed all the rules and regulations. (Not many, but be sure to check before playing.) Players can also earn a 500 coin bonus, if you hit a royal flush in the “Suit-of-the-Week” promotion on any day except Tuesdays or Thursdays, when the casino is offering double cash back instead. If you feel your “lucky suit” is spades, play from now through April 21. From April 22 to the 28, it’s diamonds. Gamblers can also earn tickets all month for the “$75,000 April Showers of Cash” drawings. Winners are selected every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Again, see details listed in the casino.
Lots of mid-month odds and ends casino news and promotions to check out:
The Hard Rock continues their 2002 Slot Player Collector Pin Series. For April, it takes 20 earned points to get the pin. As the year progresses, and the lapel/hat pins become more rare and valuable, expect the number of earned points needed to acquire them to increase. (The January pin, for instance, only required earning 10 points!) By the way, it takes $200 in coin-in to earn one point in the Hard Rock’s system. You do the math. Every point is worth a buck in cash back or comps.
The Palms continues Bob Dancer’s Video Poker education classes on Thursday afternoons at noon and 1:30 p.m. On the 18th of this month the game discussion will be Deuces Wild Bonus Poker at the early session and Pick ’Em Poker at the later class.
