Jun 10, 2002 10:03 PM

Last month it seems the casinos were all itching to give us scratch cards, and this month they have us spinning our way to earn extra cash! Two new "Spin and Win" type promotions have surfaced this month.

At the Barbary Coast, you can join in the game with the Fun Club Cash Wheel, "Spin ”˜N’ Win" promotion from now through June 26. Hit 100 coins or higher on slots and video poker with maximum coins played, no wild cards, and receive drawing tickets as follows: 1 ticket ”” up to 10¡ machines, 5 tickets ”” 25¡ machines, 7 tickets ”” 50¡ machines, 10 tickets ”” $1 machines, and 25 tickets ”” $5 machines. Five winners will qualify for a spin at the wheel each week with a chance to win up to $5,000. Drawings will be held in the lounge on Wednesdays, June 12, 19 and 26 at 7 p.m. Cash Wheel stops include: 1”” $5,000, 3”” $1,000, 6”” $500, and 10”” $250. Immediately after each drawing, five more contestants will be selected to win assorted prizes including free meals and merchandise. Earn triple slot club points on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, too.

"Spin & Win Aloha Style" is the theme at Castaways this month. Ten guaranteed winners spin the royal wheel for cash every day in June, through the 30th. Earn drawing tickets by hitting designated jackpots and by earning slot club points. Bingo winners of $100 or more also earn a drawing ticket. Five winners are selected at two daily drawings, held at 4:15 and 8:15 p.m., with a top prize on the wheel of $1,000. Minimum win is $50 if they draw your name. Earn triple points on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16 and Friday, June 21, in celebration of the first day of summer. Castaways also has a Tool Kit giveaway in Bingo on Dad’s Day with a minimum buy-in for all players, while supplies last.
