Today, December 30, is the final night for Santa Fe Station’s "Holiday Video Poker Machine Giveaway." The casino is giving away five video poker machines with $50 inside each machine and five televisions for a total of 10 winners tonight. The drawings will be held at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. Players can still earn drawing tickets through today by playing your favorite games in the casino and earning points. Complete details and rules are posted in the casino.
On January 5, the Las Vegas Hilton kicks-off "Drop N’ Win" through February 15, 2004, with a chance to win up to $10,000. Each night, five lucky contestants will receive four balls and $1 at the start of the game. Each ball is dropped down a labyrinth-like game-board and lands in a slot at the bottom of the board. Depending on the slot, contestants may win money or lose a turn. The object is to multiply the initial $1 into as much money as possible, resulting in up to $10,000. If a contestant can land all four of the balls into a "10 Times" slot, the $1 turns into $10,000. Beginning Jan. 5, guests of the Hilton may earn entries for the drawing, held nightly at 7 p.m. in the Race and Sports SuperBook. Entry into the nightly "Drop N’ Win" drawings may be earned in a variety of ways. See the casino for details.
Each contestant is guaranteed a minimum dinner for two, a Drop N’ Win T-shirt and $50 cash.
Also beginning next Monday, January 5, the Stardust will host its "January Jubilee $20,000 Cash Giveaway." Every Sunday evening, beginning January 11 and concluding on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, the casino will give away $5,000 to one lucky drawing winner. Players earn one drawing ticket for every 10 points earned throughout the casino on your Player’s Club card. Drawings will be held at 6 p.m. and best of all, participants need not be present to win! Complete rules and details are posted in the casino.
