Sep 9, 2003 12:41 AM

September is a hotbed of activity! The G2E (Gaming Expo) showcasing the latest in new gaming products rolls into town next week; football season is under way, and there are plenty of excellent casino promotions this month.

   Castaways is paying a 1,000-coin bonus on all royal flushes hit during September. Any suit, any day, any time. You must be playing max coins and royals with wild cards are excluded. Multiple line machines pay only one bonus per game, but there is no limit to the number of bonuses you can win during the month. Complete rules are posted in the casino.

   Silverton claims that it’s easy as A-B-C this month during their “All ”˜Bout Cash” promotion. Every day this month, players can earn up to $25 in next-day bounce-back cash. Earn a minimum of 500 points per day and come back the next day for $5 cash. Every 500 points thereafter earns an additional $5, up to a maximum of $25 in next day cash. If you miss coming back the following day, you do forfeit the previous day’s cash. No Player’s Club points are deducted, and you keep your points in addition to earning the extra cash back. Again, complete rules and details are posted in the casino.

   Collect a sporty logo T-shirt and jacket at the Longhorn this month. Members of the Big Shot Player’s Club who earn 5000 points by September 30 can pick up a free logo t-shirt. Make it to 20,000 points and you’ll get both the t-shirt and an imprinted logo windbreaker style jacket too. No points are deducted from your account to receive the gifts.

   “Supersize Your Jackpot” is back again at Ellis Island Casino and Brewery every Wednesday in September. Bonus cash is paid on select four-of-a-kinds every Wednesday during the month. Players report to Passport Central (kiosk machine) to get a personal “card of the day.” If you hit your “card of the day,” you win an extra cash bonus from $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. The win must verified by an attendant. Players can collect on only one bonus per day, but most machines, even multi-line (except 10, 50 or 100 play) are included. Some limitations also apply to Deuces Wild machines. Complete details are posted in the casino.

   Downtown at Jackie Gaughan’s Gold Spike, hit a jackpot of $100 or more and receive a $10 Mobil Gas Card. The promotion runs through September 30 and there is no limit to the number of gas cards you can win.

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