Chill out w/Pepsi 6-packs

Jul 8, 2003 3:26 AM

It’s Pepsi-time downtown! Several Fremont Street casinos are offering players a chance to beat the heat and cool off with Pepsi six-pack giveaways.

The Plaza is running its "Chill Out" promotion through July 31. Hit any jackpot of $50 or more on any slot, video poker or keno machine and collect a six-pack of Pepsi or Budweiser products! You must be playing with your #1 Main Club card inserted at the time of the win to be eligible to collect the six packs.

Winning a six-pack will also earn you a drawing ticket for a chance to win a 42" Plasma Screen TV. Drawings are held every Saturday in July at 8 p.m. and the drum is emptied each week. Winner must be present. Single game winners in the bingo room also win a six-pack and a drawing ticket.

Also downtown, Binion’s Horseshoe is hosting the "Pepsi Thirst Buster" through July 19. Hit any four-of-a-kind, hand-paid jackpot of $50 or more, or earn 5,000 points and receive a free six-pack of Pepsi. To qualify, you must be playing quarter and above machines with maximum coins. No wild cards are permitted to make up the winning hand and only one six-pack is given on multi-line machines. There is no limit to the number of six packs you can win. The casino will also hold a $5,000 drawing on August 2. Earn tickets by hitting quads from July 20 through August 2. Complete rules and details are posted in the casino.

Want an easy comp? At least in theory, it should be! Wild, Wild West has recently installed several new full-pay video poker machines (mostly quarters) including Deuces Wild and 10/7 Bonus Poker. They are currently running a promotion called "Four of a Kind and Dine." Receive a free ½ lb. Burger and Fries Platter, including a free cold draft beer, when you hit any four-of-a-kind on these new machines. This promotion is ongoing through July 31. Players may only earn one comp meal per day on this promotion.

Beginning this Friday, July 11, Silverton Hotel Casino will be offering a very popular promotion that we haven’t seen around town for a long time: "Double Pay on your Second Royal Flush within 24 hours!" If you hit a royal, you’ll receive a time stamped promotional form. Hit a second royal within 24 hours and collect double pay on the second royal! Certain restrictions apply and complete rules are posted at the Player’s Club. The promotion will run through the end of July. Nickel through dollar denominations qualify.

For a limited time, Casino MonteLago at Lake Las Vegas is giving away T-shirts to new Club Uno members who sign up at the booth. You can also sign-up online at casinomontelago.com, and receive 2,000 free bonus points.

The Tropicana has revised its Winners Club giveaways. New club members now receive a free Tropicana T-shirt for 30 minutes of slot play; two tickets to "The Magic of Rick Thomas" for 90 minutes of slot play; and two tickets to "Folies Bergere" for 150 minutes of play. Also, the Trop is no longer offering double cashback during the first 24 hours for new members.

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