Free-wheeling at Coast

May 6, 2003 5:54 AM

While Coast Casinos has yet to unveil any details about its "mysterious" new combined slot club card, the Barbary Coast rolls out the "Wheel or Deal Cash Giveaway" for the month of May. Every Friday in May, three drawing winners each hour at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. will win either $500 cash or trade it away for a spin at the wheel to win between $250-$2,500.

There is one "bust" space on the wheel for dinner for two at Michael’s. It’s almost a shame to call it a bust to win dinner for two at one of the finest restaurants in town, but if you give away $500 for it, then I guess it’s a bust! But a chance at $2,500 is also hard to pass up! Players earn drawing tickets for hitting designated jackpots throughout the casino floor and also by placing $25 or more sports bets. Tickets will be distributed throughout the month ending at 8:45 p.m. on Friday, May 30. Complete rules and details are posted at the Fun Club booth.

Ellis Island is offering players a shot at lots of extra cash this month with a "Supersize Your Jackpot" promotion. Bonus cash is being paid on select four-of-a-kinds every Wednesday during the month of May. Players report to Passport Central, a user-friendly kiosk machine, on Wednesdays to receive a personal "card of the day."

If you hit your personal "card of the day," you win an extra cash bonus ”” $10 on nickel machines, $50 on quarters, $125 on dollars and $600 on five dollar machines. Players must be playing max coins to qualify and have their Passport card inserted. Some limitations also apply to Deuces Wild machines. Complete details are posted in the casino.

The venerable Stardust kicks off its 45th anniversary this summer and has instituted a new promotion for new Player’s Club members. Out of state guests who sign up for a first-time new card are entitled to an additional 20 times points as a rebate for their first 30 minutes of play. The new player must make a return visit after two weeks (but may take up to one year) to pick up the extra cash. Las Vegas residents do not qualify for the promotion.

Finally, the Imperial Palace is rewarding new club members with two free buffets after earning just 100 points within the first 24 hours of enrolling. No point redemption is necessary. Keep the points to use for additional comps and cash back too.

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