Shoot for Loot at LVH

Sep 23, 2003 3:31 AM

A popular promotion called "Shoot for Loot" returns this week at the Las Vegas Hilton running through October 19. Drawing winners get a chance to toss the dice and win up to $10,000. Each night five people are selected to compete in a two minute slot tournament to determine placement in "Shoot for Loot." The first place winner receives five rolls of the dice, second place receives four rolls, third place receives three rolls, fourth place rolls twice and fifth place gets a single roll.

The winning participants then roll three oversize dice down a table. Each die is six-sided with a corresponding dollar value and a "wild" side. If all three dice match, the contestant wins the dollar amount displayed on the dice. Each time the contestant rolls and matches all three of the dice, the dollar amount is added to his/her total winnings. If the contestant rolls three "wilds," the maximum value prize of $10,000 is awarded.

Guests can earn entries into the nightly "Shoot for Loot" drawings in a variety of ways including staying in the hotel as a room guest, dining in the Hilton’s restaurants, purchasing show tickets and signing up for a Connection Club Card. A complete list for earning tickets is available at the promotions booth. The nightly drawings take place at 7 p.m. in the SpaceQuest Casino. Guests may enter each night’s drawing every time they qualify, but you must be present to win.

In addition to the usual food and drink specials offered during Monday Night Football at most casinos, Rampart Casino takes it even further offering video poker specials too. Last we checked they offered a 100 coin bonus on the "Card of the Night" and they were also running "2-Minute Drill" cash drawings.

Since we last reported it several months ago, the player comp meal deal downtown at the El Cortez has changed. To earn a comp to Kitty’s Cafe now requires 1,500 points or a three-course meal at Roberta’s is just 2,000 points. Previously, players were required to earn the points within the month, but now you can accumulate them and dine when you want. You also need to redeem the points now, where in the past you didn’t, but double point days count towards the comps where they didn’t in the past. All in all, it’s an excellent player comp promotion that’s hard to beat anywhere in town.

In a last-minute e-mail flash from Mesquite this week, we learned that the Virgin River Casino is offering five times points Monday through Thursday in September. This only applies from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is only for September, so better hurry if you want in on the special.

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