Some additional rules and restrictions apply, such as playing maximum coins and limitations on wild card machines. Be sure to read all the rules posted in the casino prior to playing and that you’re always using your Charlie Card.

The often-quiet New Frontier is coming on strong with several new summer promotions. Player’s Card members can earn free gasoline cards in addition to their regular comps and cash back for the months of July and August. Receive a $10 gasoline card for every 1,000 earned points up to five cards per month. Double slot club points are also being awarded for play on all $1 reel slots for July and August too.

If you’re a beginner, or perhaps just looking to improve your video poker skills, a video poker expert is teaching free video poker strategy classes at the Castaways every Tuesday evening. The July 9 class will be "Jacks or Better" and the July 16 class will be "Deuces Wild." All classes are held in the Blue Marlin Restaurant with the beginners classes held weekly at 7 p.m. and advanced players are invited to attend at 8:30 pm. A different game will be taught each week, continuing through September. No reservations are required.

If you’re feeling particularly lucky on Saturdays or Sundays this month, head to the Rampart Casino in Summerlin. Hit a royal flush on nickel and above machines with maximum coin in and receive a free logo polo shirt as a gift. (Some restrictions apply on multi-line games. Check the rules before playing.)

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