Casinos plan June swoon for slot club members

May 28, 2002 2:18 AM

The MGM Grand is encouraging new members to sign up for their Directors Club with a tempting reward. New sign-ups who earn 400 points or more within their first visit (called a trip) receive two complimentary tickets to the popular, "EFX" production show starring Rick Springfield, and they also receive two Grand Safari buffet dining vouchers. The promotion is open to locals and tourists alike, and if you’re a first time new enrollee, be sure to inquire about the special offer at the slot club booth. Earning 400 points would take about $2,000 coin-in on slots or $4,000 coin-in on video poker machines.

There is still time left during May to get in on several excellent promotional offers at the Rampart Casino in Summerlin. Through May 31, Rampart Rewards club members who hit a royal flush in diamonds (the suit of the week), get to cash in on an extra 500 coin bonus. On Friday, if you earn 100 points you’ll receive a logo hat and still get to keep your points. Some rules and regulations apply to all promotions, so inquire at the club booth prior to playing.

The Aladdin is certainly becoming more promotion-happy than we’ve ever seen. During May and June, if you bring a friend to sign up for Club Aladdin, you and your friend will receive a free Spice Market buffet, after your buddy earns his first 100 points. The 100 points must be earned within the first 30 days of the initial enrollment. Stop by the slot club booth for complete details.

Sam’s Town is still offering a bonus of $1,199 to any and all gamblers who are playing Megabucks when the $21 million-plus jackpot hits anywhere in the state. You must be actively playing Megabucks with your slot club (Prime Rewards) card inserted, but if the big jackpot hits at any casino while you’re playing ­­”” you win too! (The $1,199, that is!) The offer remains in effect until the current jackpot hits. Again, see complete rules and details posted in the casino.

Jazz music lovers can double up on their favorite games and enjoy the cool sounds at the same time. Mondays are now "Jazz on the Strip" nights at the Barbary Coast with live jazz featured in the lounge and double points at the machines from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Early reports for June indicate that not only will the weather will be hot, but the action as well. Tune in next week for some hot June casino promotions.

Until next week, keep in mind”¦"Luck seems to favor those who prepare for it!"
