Casinos will be celebrating anniversaries, NASCAR, St Patrick’s Day and March Madness this month. There are excellent opportunities for gamblers to gain an advantage with chances to win extra cash, drawings and more.

The Barbary Coast marks its 25th Anniversary today, March 2, and is offering double points all day. In honor of the anniversary the casino is running a $25,000 cash giveaway. Every Tuesday in March at 6, 7, and 8 p.m. three winners will be drawn to win cash prizes. At 6 and 7 p.m., the first two valid winners will receive $250 and the third will receive $500. At 8 p.m., there will be three names drawn for $1,000 each. Players must be present to win the drawings. Earn tickets on designated jackpots and payouts as posted in the casino.

Players can begin earn drawing tickets this week at sister casinos Gold Coast, Suncoast and Orleans for the St. Pat’s Pot O’ Cash drawings to be held on the March 17 holiday at all three casinos. The March 17 drawings will offer $1,000 hourly cash prizes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and double cash if the winner is present and claims his or her prize within 5 minutes. Any unclaimed cash prizes will be re-drawn at 8 p.m. Drawing tickets are earned by hitting select designated jackpots which are posted in the casino, along with the complete drawing rules.

Through Thursday, March 4, NASCAR fans can rock and win at the Hard Rock. For every 100 points earned on your Back Stage Pass slot club account, receive one drawing ticket for a chance to win 2 Rusty Wallace Pit/Garage Passes for the NASCAR races on Saturday and Sunday, March 6 and March 7.

The drawings will be held on Thursday, March 4 at 6 p.m. at the Back Stage Pass club booth. Additional prizes include five passes to a private "Meet & Greet with Rusty Wallace" that night at 7 p.m. and five autographed die-cast collector’s cars. You must be present to win at the drawings. The promotion is being held in conjunction with radio station KKLZ. The Hard Rock is also running double point days every Thursday and Sunday, open to everyone, during March.
