Dec 3, 2003 12:47 AM

Now in progress through Thursday, December 4, Green Valley Ranch Station will be hosting a holiday shopping extravaganza. Check out over 1,000 great designer gift items at discount prices, including crystal, sunglasses, handbags, personal accessories, fragrances, housewares, writing instruments, glassware, paintings, gadgets and unique gift items.

Present your Stations Boarding Pass card for additional discounts as follows: 5% off purchases of $100 or more, 10% off purchases of $200 or more or 20% off purchases of $300 or more. The event is held in the El Viento ballroom and the hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

National Finals Rodeo (NFR) kicks off this week. The Aladdin will be celebrating by offering a "Rodeo Days Commemorative Token Giveaway." Drawings will be held from December 6-12 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. Players can also get the collectable token by earning 200 points on your club account during the promotion. There is a limit of one token per person and no points are deducted from your account, so you keep them to use for additional comps and cash back. The complete rules and details for the token giveaway are posted in the casino.

Hotel San Remo, the exclusive host hotel for NFR Team Ropers will be featuring nightly parties with non-stop fun and entertainment during NFR. From December 5-13, the casino will show live TV coverage of the events, host a free nightly party from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., plus there will be "Kick-Ass Drawings and Contests" for NFR tickets, jackets and other great prizes and dancing nightly to the music of Kenny Bradberry and his band. There will also be Mechanical Bull and Roping Contests plus a free drawing to win a two horse trailer.

Playing downtown at the Plaza during December can help with extra Christmas cash. Win a free $10 Gift Card from December 1-31 during the Player’s Choice Giveaway. Select a $10 gift card from a variety of national chain stores when you hit any jackpot of $200 or more while playing with your #1 Main Club card inserted. Be sure to notify an attendant before playing off your win so that you can collect your gift card.

Also downtown, through December 23, Binion’s Horseshoe is now hosting its "Christmas Cash Giveaway" with over $10,000 in cash prizes. Players can earn drawing tickets based on points earned, four-of-a-kinds and hand paid jackpots. On December 23 at 8:15 p.m. a drawing will be held in front of the Horseshoe Club. Ten winners will get to select an ornament from the Christmas tree each containing cash prizes from $250 to $5,000. Complete details are posted at the Horseshoe Club slot promotions booth.

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