Look for holiday gifts in the casinos

Nov 25, 2002 11:28 PM

   Wow! Thanksgiving week already with Christmas and the New Year right around the corner! Our crystal ball tells us there will be plenty of excellent opportunities for players to try to beat the casinos out of gifts, cash and extra slot club benefits in December. We have a sneak preview starting this week along with closing out November’s special promotions.

   Still time to “Get Down on all Fours” at the Hard Rock through tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 27. Every four-of-a-kind on video poker machines earns players a free scratch card worth free slot play, concert tickets, dinners, or drinks. Scratch the second part of the ticket to spell out S-T-O-N-E-S and win tickets to the Rolling Stones concert at the Joint. Scratch cards also get you an entry for a chance to win a New Year’s Eve package, including tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

   Green Valley Ranch Station continues its “Jackets for Jackpots” promotion through Nov. 30, but you can now also collect a jacket by earning 1,500 slot club points during this final week. No point redemption is necessary.

   Several casinos are offering Thanksgiving specials for their players this week. Club Palms members can earn triple points this week from Nov. 25-27 and buffets will be half price too. Both Fiestas (Henderson and Rancho) are rewarding players with five times points from Wednesday, Nov. 27 through Friday, Nov. 29. Ask for a coupon at the Amigo Club booth to credit your account for the multi-points if you didn’t receive one by mail.

   Downtown at the Plaza, gamblers can win Smith’s Grocery store gift certificates, Dec. 1-19. Players can win up to $100 in gift certificates based on designated jackpots and the denomination of the machine being played. Use your #1 Main Club card while playing and see the complete rules and details posted in the casino.

   This week will be your last chance to battle wits with the chicken playing Tic-Tac-Toe at the Tropicana for a chance at 10 grand. “Ginger” the smart chicken, moves her act to her new home at sister-property, the Ramada Express in Laughlin on Dec, 1.

   Happy Thanksgiving! Remember”¦ “Luck seems to come to those who prepare for it!”
