Summer promos heat up the casino at the Hilton

Jun 17, 2002 10:22 PM

The Las Vegas Hilton is unveiling two new, hot summer promotions, where guests can drop and win or fly for free.

Drop and Win. This is an exciting game that will give players the chance to win up to $10,000. Each night, five lucky contestants will receive four balls and $1 at the start of the game. As each ball is dropped down a labyrinth-like game board, it bounces around, eventually landing in a slot at the bottom of the board. Depending on the slot, contestants may win money or lose a turn. The object is to multiply the initial $1 into as much money as possible, up to $10,000. If a contestant can land all four of his or her balls into a "10 Times" slot, the $1 turns into $10,000.

Starting June 18, guests of the Hilton may earn entries into the drawing, to be held at 7:30 p.m. nightly. Entries into the daily drawings may be earned by checking into a Hilton hotel room, dining in any of the hotel’s restaurants or purchasing show tickets.

At each daily drawing, the five chosen contestants will have a shot at winning $10,000, with the potential of $50,000 being awarded during each Drop and Win session. Each contestant is guaranteed to win buffet tickets, a Drop and Win T-shirt and $50 cash. This promotion will continue through the end of July.

50 for 50. Beginning June 17, visitors to the Las Vegas Hilton will get the chance to receive a $50 flight coupon when they sign up for a new Park Place Connection card.

After accumulating 50 points on their Park Place Connection card, new members will earn one $50 flight coupon as well as one raffle ticket for the grand prize vacation drawing. The grand prize consists of two round-trip tickets to New York City or San Francisco, five nights of luxury accommodations at a Hilton Hotel and $1,500 in spending money.

50 For 50 will run through the end of August and a date for the grand prize drawing has not yet been determined. Only new Park Place Connection card members are eligible for this promotion.

The Park Place Connection card allows guests to play at all of the Park Place properties in Las Vegas while accruing points on one card. Points can be accumulated and redeemed at the Las Vegas Hilton, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas and Caesars Palace.
