Pool parties are the latest casino craze

"Summer Block Parties" is the theme at Santa Fe Station this month. On Saturday, June 22 and Saturday, June 29, the casino invites guests to participate in a casino-wide party featuring live entertainment, cash drawings for regular Santa Fe customers and new member sign-ups, and lots of free food sampling, coupons and discounts. Promotional areas are set up throughout the casino offering free cookies, Margaritas, popcorn, chips and salsa, and more. Vendors like Fatburger and Memphis Barbeque will be on-hand with some samples and coupon discounts. Each day’s activities are scheduled from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., with "Hot Lava" performing on the promotional stage between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. The drawings are held at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Casinos are always in search of new members to sign up for their slot clubs and sometimes the incentives can be quite lucrative to join. New member sign-ups at the Tropicana can currently earn a triple-treat! Playing a minimum of two hours on your new Winners Club card will earn you two complimentary tickets to the famous "Folies Bergere" show, an approximate, $90 value! In addition, new members also receive double cash back for their first 24 hours of play and a free Tropicana logo T-shirt after just 30 minutes of play. You can also take a free spin on one of their "Free Play" machines (available to existing club members, too), for a chance to win additional prizes and everyone receives a coupon sheet for extra values and discounts, too!

The Las Vegas Hilton always seems to find a way to promote and encourage new slot club membership too! They have recently launched, "50 for 50." After accumulating 50 points on your 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. In other words, if you are already a member of Park Place Connection through Caesars, Flamingo, Bally’s or Paris, you DO NOT qualify as a new member for this promotion.
