Fall brings cornucopia of giveaways

Sep 3, 2002 12:37 AM

We can often tell the weather by the types of promotions that come up. As fall and winter approach the casinos often turn to jacket giveaways and football specials to attract gamblers.

Boulder Station is first out of the gate to offer a jacket promotion this fall season. Players who hit a royal flush or top award slot jackpot will receive a logo jacket as a bonus gift during the month of September. All month long in September, play with your Boarding Pass to win a jacket for every top award jackpot you hit with maximum coins bet. Not only will you win the cash prize, you can walk away wearing a suede, windbreaker or reversible jacket. The jacket style you receive is determined by your top award jackpot amount.

Sam’s Town "kicks off" the start of the football season with a logo mini-stuffed football giveaway on designated four-of-a-kinds on Sept. 6 and 7. Check the rules and regulations at the Prime Rewards slot club center prior to playing for complete details and the selected four-of-a-kinds needed to win the footballs.

Downtown players at the Plaza can earn free gas all month long. "Gas and Go" a popular previous promotion, returns to the casino from Sept. 3 through Sept. 30. Slot, video poker and keno players with their #1 Main Club card inserted while playing receive a free $10 gas card with every jackpot of $200 or more. The $10 gas card is good at any Exxon or Mobil gas station anywhere in the USA. Complete promotion details and rules are available at the #1 Main Club booth.

Caesars Palace has something new in the way of a daily free pull slot machine for Park Place Connection members. The "$1 Million Fantasy" slot machine allows for all members of Park Place Connection the opportunity for one free pull daily. In addition to the $1 million shopping spree grand prize, other prizes will include discount shopping certificates, complimentary show tickets to Caesars Magical Empire and shopping sprees valued at $100 - $25,000.

Grandparents Day, Sunday Sept. 8, is becoming a more popular holiday every year. Look for casino specials like double points at Gold Coast, Suncoast and Orleans. There will also be a "Cutest Grandkids in Las Vegas" contest at Silverton. The 2nd annual event runs this week through Sept. 8. Bring in a photo of your grandchildren this week to compete for four $500 cash prizes in four age categories, and you will also receive a free buffet voucher valid for Sunday Sept. 8.

Remember, "Luck seems to come to those who prepare for it!"
