Casino specials aren’t
April Fool’s gold!

Apr 1, 2003 4:50 AM

Time to spring forward into a new month, and no fooling, April will rock for slot and video poker players all over town, so let’s get started!

It seems that everyone loves casino-wear fashions and logo clothing. And it’s always great fun to win the stuff. Beginning today, April 1, the Las Vegas Club downtown will be rewarding players who hit any jackpot of $400 or more with a logo windbreaker jacket. The promotion will continue as long as supplies last. Usually there is a good quantity on hand, but if you’re really trying for a particular promotion, it’s always best to play this type of promotion early in the month or at the start of any promotion.

On the Strip, the Imperial Palace announces a palate-pleasing offer for new members who sign-up for the Player’s Club. During the month of April, all new enrollees who accumulate 100 points of play within the first 24 hours of joining the slot club will receive two free buffets at Imperial Palace’s Emperors Buffet. No points will be deducted. Players get to keep the earned points for additional comps or cash back. The Imperial Palace Players Club booth has complete details on the promotion.

Beginning April 7 and continuing through the 20th of the month, the Hard Rock hosts "Spring Bling" (hmm ”¦ I wonder what a "bling" is) nightly drawings for a chance to win trips and vacation packages. Players earn drawing tickets for their slot and video poker play. Every point earned ($100 -$200 coin-in per point depending on the game played) is equal to one drawing ticket. You must be present to win at the drawings, which will be held every evening at 6 p.m. The nightly drawings include a chance to win one of the following: Colorado River Package, Orange County Getaway or a Big Bear Vacation Package. On the final night, April 20 the drawing will be for a Wave Runner.

Last month Rampart Casino and the Cannery were giving away table place settings for earning points. This month you can get the silverware! The gift day is every Wednesday in April at either location. Earn 50 points for the silverware set at the Cannery or 25 points for the set at Rampart (different slot clubs).

When you earn the points, pick up your free gift; you still get to keep the points. The Cannery will also be giving away your choice of a six-pack of Coke or Diet Coke on Tuesdays for earning just 5 points. Limit of one six pack per person per Tuesday.

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