Apr 13, 2004 1:00 AM

The Sahara has launched a new promotion called EZMoney. All new Club Sahara sign-ups now receive $10 in EZMoney, free play cash. Existing Club Sahara members can also receive $10 in EZMoney when they visit Club Sahara and select a PIN (Personal Identification Number.)

Celebrating its ongoing expansion, the Silverton Hotel Casino is hosting the "$250,000 Expansion Giveaway" through April 30. The casino is distributing free game boards with the names of 20 dining, entertainment and gaming attractions throughout the property. For every 500 points earned on your Players Club account, members receive a two-part game card. The top half is a guaranteed instant-win ticket with prizes ranging from slot points to meals and/or cash, and the bottom half represents a location on the game board. In addition to all the instant prizes, the first player to collect all twenty game pieces on the board can win a cool $25 grand.

"We Will Pay Your Taxes or Match Your Refund" is the official name of both Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Boulder giveaway this month. Players can win $1,000 in drawings held every Thursday in April. Drawing tickets are earned by playing games throughout the casino and a complete list of the rules and regulations are posted at the Ultimate Rewards slot club booth.

Fill out a registration form with your e-mail address at the promotions booth this month at Wild Wild West and you could win a new 19" color TV. The drawing will be held on April 30, and you do not need to be present to win. Winners will be notified by e-mail.

Downtown, the Four Queens will launch the "$20,000 Road to Riches Cash Giveaway" beginning this Sunday, April 18 and running through June 27. For every 20 points earned on your Reel Winner’s slot club card, players receive a drawing ticket for cash prize drawings to be held on June 27 at 10 a.m. at the club booth. You need not be present to win the drawings. After completing your first 20 points, you will also receive a complimentary "moneybag" filled with Ethel M golden wrapped milk chocolate coins. Players can earn drawing tickets by playing table games too. See the Reel Winners Club promotion booth for complete contest details.

Please note this correction from last week’s column. The Palms Casino Resort is indeed giving away a Nissan 350Z car to the player who earns the most Club Palms points this month. But points from video poker play do not qualify for this promotion. It is for reel and video slots only. Again, only single points, no multiple point days or coupons apply.

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