Casinos kick it up a notch!

Jun 17, 2003 3:28 AM

Players can win up to $10,000 in Fiesta’s "Cash Pyramid" drawings this month. For every 100 points earned on your Amigo Club card, you’ll receive one drawing ticket. Then, every Friday and Saturday, winners are selected at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. for a cash prize from the pyramid board. You can earn additional drawing tickets in bingo, keno and the race and sports book. Complete details are available at the promotions booth, but you must be present to win. The promotion continues through June 28.

Terrible’s has bumped up the opportunity to cash in on double pay for royal flushes this month. They now offer "Double Royals" five days a week. Every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays through Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to midnight, Terrible’s will pay double on every max coin bottom line 1-cent to quarter denomination royal flushes hit. In addition, if you like to play for the big bucks, during the same time periods, you can collect the following: a $1,000 cash bonus for every 50-cent max coin bottom line royal flush or a $2,000 cash bonus for every $1, $2, or $5 max coin bottom line royal flush. Along with their very generous multiple point days (see schedule below) and double cash back timeframes, this equates to a very lucrative opportunity for players!

Santa Fe Station sometimes seems like the orphaned step-child in Stations’ empire of local’s casinos. But they come on strong this month with "Perfect 10" drawings giving away a total of $10,000 in cash every Saturday, from noon until 9:50 p.m. Players earn one drawing ticket for every 100 points accumulated on their Boarding Pass account. One $500 winner is drawn every hour on the hour, and one $100 winner is selected every 10 minutes after the hour. Winners have one hour to claim their prize.

In other slot club news, both the El Cortez (Jackie’s Club) and the Las Vegas Club (Ulimate Club) have converted from coin-out (earning 1 point for every $1 you win) to coin-in (earning 1 point for every $1 you play). The formula remains the same: 500 points equals $1 in cash back or 400 points for $1 in meal comps, but management reports that players are now earning about 3 percent more points on average than with the prior system. Another positive move for the players! The Las Vegas Club also promises to launch the "mother of all scratch card promotions" (possibly beginning later this week) as a summer long celebration and giveaway. Watch for details here as they unfold. Should be a good one!

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