Summer is here, welcome to purgatory! But players can cool off in the casinos, where there’s plenty of hot action.

The Plaza is always coming up with something unusual to reward jackpot winners and June looks exceptionally enticing. Jackpot winners of $200 or more receive a ticket/voucher good for two complimentary buffets to Chop-Chop, the popular Chinese Buffet. You can use the ticket or attempt to collect a second one on an additional $200 or more jackpot, and then trade up to dinner for two at the famous Center Stage Restaurant, overlooking the Fremont Street Experience. There’s a limit of 12 tickets per person and participants must be #1 Main Club card members using their cards at the time of the win. Complete rules are posted in the casino. Also, just for fun-time extra treats, the Plaza gives free ice cream bars on Wednesdays with every jackpot of $10 or more!

The Palms is offering cashback for slot and video poker players for the first time ever during the entire month of June. Players earn cashback at the rate of $10 for every 4,000 points. Double points are being awarded Mondays through Thursdays all month and cash redemption days are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Only new points earned during June qualify for cashback and is not retro to old points in your account. However, double point days do qualify towards cashback. Maximum cashback allowed is $1,000 per each redemption day. See the complete list of rules and details posted in the casino.

You can also go for the really big bucks at Suncoast this month. The casino will be giving away $300,000 in cash drawings during June, with 10 $10,000 drawings every 10 days. Earn drawing tickets by hitting designated jackpots, (posted in the casino) and enter them to win on June 10, 20 and 30, at 2:10 p.m. and 8:10 p.m. in the Sports Lounge. (Five $10,000 drawings both times each of the three days.) You can earn drawing tickets at table games, in Bingo and the Race & Sports Book, too.
