Try to win a cruise!

Apr 27, 2004 12:28 AM

Summer sea crusin’ is a hot promotion. Try your luck to win a seven-day Carnival cruise as the grand prize on the Tropicana’s free-pull machines, located outside near the casino’s main entrance and on the overhead walkway leading to the MGM Grand. They are also giving away a five-day cruise through a monthly drawing. Tropicana Winner’s Club members are eligible to receive one free entry per day at the Promotion Center. The winning ticket will be drawn at 8 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month. Both promotions run indefinitely.

The Palms Casino Resort is set to sail away with a cruise-a-day giveaway beginning May 1. The casinos will give away 66 cruises to lucky winners daily through May 23. Once every day from 7 a.m. to 6:45 p.m., Club Palms members can swipe their slot club cards to earn one electronic entry for the nightly drawings. If you are not a member of Club Palms, sign up for the free club to participate. Then, every evening at 7 p.m. a drawing will be held for three players to become eligible to win one of three cruises: a 7 day cruise, a 5 day cruise and a 4 day cruise. Winners must only be present for the May 12 and 23 drawings. All other drawings winners have 24 hours to claim and collect their prize from the casino’s main cage. All unclaimed prizes will be given away during the May 12 and May 23 drawings.

Additional electronic entries may be earned by playing slot, video poker and video keno machines. One electronic entry will be awarded to Club Palms members for each increment of points earned, based on machine denomination for recorded play on slot, video poker and video keno machines as follows:
