If drawings are your thing, then this is your month to head to a Stations Casino. Everything from bill paying to cash and furniture, or even a Chevy Avalanche car is up for grabs during August at a Stations Casino near you!

Here’s a quick look at the line-up of drawings:

Palace Station: "Bill Buster Giveaway" drawings every Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m. with 10 winners at each drawing and a chance to win up to $1,000 each.

Boulder Station: "Beat the Heat" $100,000 Cash Giveaway" with drawings every Friday and Saturday at 8:15 p.m. $10,000 will be given away at each drawing with the top prize of $5,000.

Texas Station: "$100,000 Walker Furniture Fantasy Giveaway" drawings begin August 16 and continue every Friday and Saturday in August at 8 p.m. A total of 24 rooms of furniture will be given away in addition to $30,000 in cash prizes.

Santa Fe Station: "Avalanche of Cash" drawings are held every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a chance to win a share of $10,000 at each drawing. The Chevy Avalanche car will be given away during the grand prize drawing on Saturday, August 31.

Every 100 Boarding Pass points earned on your account will earn you a drawing ticket wherever you play. Table games, keno and race & sports are also eligible to earn drawing tickets. See complete details posted in each casino.

(Note to Stations: How are players who visit different Station Casino’s expected to be able to enter more than one drawing if all the drawings are held on Fridays and Saturdays at approximately the same time? Hmm”¦)

Elsewhere, The Orleans has a new "Paycheck Party Happy Hour" for Las Vegas locals every Friday from 4-8 p.m. in the Bourbon Street Cabaret.

Cash your paycheck and receive a free drawing ticket for a happy hour cash drawing and prizes. Participants can enjoy Bud Light and Tecate beer specials and happy hour finger food specials. Double Club Orleans slot club points are awarded to everyone from 4-8 p.m. too.

Now the bad news ”¦ Ellis Island has cancelled the 25x points special for new members noted in last week’s column. Management pinpointed computer tracking as the problem and hope to have it resolved to be able to offer the special sometime in the near future. We’ll keep you posted. The "Bring a Friend" to sign-up and each receive 5,000 points, still applies for August.

As always, review the rules and regulations on all promotions prior to playing and remember”¦ "Luck seems to favor those who prepare for it!"
