December is always a great month for casino promotions. There are far fewer tourists in town until just before New Year’s Eve and the casinos pour on the promotions to attract business.

The Hard Rock is offering a rare chance to collect a jacket from them in December. Most of their promotions are usually "closed" offers sent by direct mail, but everyone can grab a jacket this time around. Just earn a minimum of 250 points on your Back Stage Pass slot club account between December 14 and 24 to collect your logo jacket. The points do not need to be earned in one day but jacket supplies are limited so it would be wise to play early and earn your jacket as quickly as possible. You may only earn one per person.

Free jackets are also available at the Rampart Casino in Summerlin on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays this month. Earn 750 points on the same day and receive a free casino logo windbreaker jacket. At their sister property, The Cannery in North Las Vegas, play on Thursdays or Saturdays during December to earn a jacket. In both promotions, players keep the earned points to use towards additional comps and cash back. Jackets are limited to one jacket per person per day. The Cannery is also offering a $25 voucher good toward the purchase of a Christmas tree from a nearby lot. Earn and redeem 2,000 same day points for the voucher.

The New Frontier begins their Macy’s Shopping Spree Giveaway this Sunday, December 21 and running through January 31, 2004. Earn entries each day for Macy’s Shopping Sprees. The daily prize is a $100 Macy’s Gift Card. There is no limit to the number of entries you can earn. Entries are earned throughout the casino with the rules posted at the Player’s Club. On December 25 a drawing for $2,003 in Macy’s Gift Certificates will be held and then again on January 31, 2004 there will be another drawing to win $2,004 in Macy’s Gift Certificates. You do not need to be present to win the daily $100 prize. If not present, the winner will be mailed a certificate to return to claim the prize. If present, the winner will also win a certificate for a free two night hotel stay.

The poker room at the Excalibur is running "The Double Days of December" as follows: through December 23rd all wheel spins pay double. A player may spin the Money Wheel for the following: In Seven-card Stud, if you make four of a kind or better; or if you lose with a full house, play the hand to its conclusion, and there is at least $30 in the pot. In Texas Hold’em, if you make four of a kind or better; or if you lose with pocket aces, play the hand to its conclusion, and there is at least $30 in the pot. All wheel spins normally pay from $20 to $300. During the Double Days of December promotion players can win from $40 to $600!

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