”˜Tis the season to begin thinking about the holidays and gift shopping. Several casinos are offering players the chance to earn shopping sprees, gifts and extra holiday cash.

Primm Valley Resorts is making shopping at the Fashion Outlets Las Vegas more fun this holiday season. The three-casino resorts on the Southern California/Nevada state line are offering "Points for Presents," a promotion that matches playing points with shopping points.

Now through December 27, 2003, every Bank of Primadonna Club point you earn will be matched with one free holiday shopping point. You can redeem holiday shopping points anytime from December 1-27 for gift certificates to the Fashion Outlets Las Vegas and all Primm Valley gift shops.

Play at Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino, Primm Valley Resort & Casino or Whiskey Pete’s Hotel & Casino. Visitors to Primm Valley Resorts on Thanksgiving weekend will also have the chance to enter to win a new Ford F-150 Extended Cab and cash prizes. You can get a free drawing ticket by joining the Bank of Primadonna players club, and then earn additional tickets by playing slots at any of Primm’s three casino-resorts.

Drawings for $1,000 will be held on Saturday, November 29, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. At 8 p.m. Primm will give away a brand new red Ford F-150 Extended Cab. Participants must be present to win.

If you’ve been playing at the Aladdin during this past year, you’ve been earning Dream Bazaar points along with your regular slot club points. You earn one Dream Bazaar dollar for every 10 regular Club Aladdin points earned. Club Aladdin will host their special Dream Bazaar to redeem your points for gifts of all kind from December 15-23. Also, from December 6-12, the casino is celebrating NFR (National Finals Rodeo) with a "Rodeo Days Commemorative Token Giveaway."

Drawings will be held every hour from noon to 10 p.m. for Club Aladdin members to have a chance to win a custom-made limited edition $25 hologram token. New Club Aladdin enrollees receive a free entry for the drawings. You can also get the collectable token by earning 200 points on your club account during the promotion dates. There is a limit of one token per person and no points are deducted from your account, so you can keep them to use for additional comps and cash back.

There may also be holiday cash available for you to pick up at Bally’s Las Vegas. If you’ve been a player at Bally’s throughout the past year, you’ve been earning a holiday Christmas cash bonus in addition to your regular club benefits and cash back. You must return and redeem the extra holiday cash account in person, and only between December 3-25, or you lose it. The Connection Club is the place to visit to check on your holiday cash and pick up your voucher to redeem at the cage.

For something different, try the Las Vegas Club downtown, now featuring daily slot tournaments. Ultimate Club members who earn 500 points or more on their player’s card in one day receive a free entry for the following day’s tournament. First place is $300. Second and third place winners collect $100 each. The tournaments are ongoing until further notice.

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