Downtown has some really upbeat promotions

Nov 5, 2002 1:12 AM

   Jackie Gaughan’s Las Vegas Club downtown has been getting very active with strong player promotions over the past few months. “Dash for the Cash” is the drawing giveaway for November through the 27th. Nightly cash drawings are held at 8 p.m. and Ultimate Club members receive one free entry to get you started. Additional drawing tickets are earned through slot, pit and keno play, and through restaurant purchases. Ten winners are drawn every evening to spin the cash wheel for a chance to win $100 — $500. In addition to the drawing promotion, players earning a minimum of 300 points on their slot club account are entitled to free lunch at the Upper Deck Restaurant. No point redemption is necessary.

   Another downtown Gaughan property, the Plaza, will be giving away v-neck logo sweaters on all slot, video poker and video keno jackpots of $200 or more during the month of November. Play with your #1 Main Club card inserted. If you hit a jackpot of $200 or more, save your winning hand on the screen and turn on your change light to summons an attendant who will verify your win and give you a voucher to redeem at the club booth for your sweater.

   The Suncoast will mark its two-year anniversary with a one-day special celebration on Wednesday, November 6. All players get double Club Denaro points all day, complimentary cake and champagne will be served from 11 a.m. — 11 p.m. and a fireworks display is planned for 8 p.m. in the evening. Bingo players will receive a special anniversary T-shirt with a minimum buy-in. Congratulations Suncoast on a great two years!

   At the Imperial Palace on the Strip, “Cash Blast” is back. The Imperial Money Machine is “blasting” money at 3:30 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in November and December. Five lucky customers will be drawn at random and have two minutes to get to the Kabuki Lounge and one minute to “grab” their share of over $3,000 in cash from the Cash Blast money machine. Earn tickets for the drawings through casino play, on table games and keno, and in the race and sports book and restaurant purchases. An additional four names will be drawn for various other prizes, including “Legends in Concert” tickets or dinner for two at any of the restaurants in the Fifth Floor Dining Plaza (excluding Embers). See the complete list of rules and details posted in the casino.

   During November, playing at Texas Station or Green Valley Ranch Station gives you a chance to win a casino logo jacket. Hit a top award jackpot, like a royal flush or slot jackpot and win one of three different style jackets. The style of jacket you win is based on the coin denomination of the machine being played. All are nice. Again, see the details listed in each casino.

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