As the mercury soars to typical Las Vegas summer highs, the casino fun begins with gifts, promotions and giveaways geared around summer. In addition to double points every Tuesday and Wednesday in June (see the complete list of bonus points being offered by all casinos at the conclusion of this column), Casino MonteLago at Lake Las Vegas is offering players a free logo travel bag by accumulating 1,000 points on your Club Uno card from now through June 25. Players keep the earned points to use towards additional comps or free play cash. Only single earned points apply toward the gift and guests are limited to one bag per person while supplies last.
The Cannery in North Las Vegas is running a similar promotion offering guests free "Summer of Fun T-Shirts" on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Earn 100 same-day points and receive a free logo T-shirt. Customers keep the points here too. T-shirts are limited to one per customer per day. Sizes small through XXL are available in four colors: yellow, white, blue or red. In addition, the casino is giving away a total of $100,000 in the "Summer of Fun Cash Drawings" held every Saturday and Sunday at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. through June 27th. The top prize winner at each drawing collects $2,500! 30 additional cash prizes from $50 to $500 are awarded at each drawing for a total of more than 500 winners for the month. Customers receive one free drawing entry for every 100 points earned each day. No drawing tickets may be earned or distributed on drawing days and you must be present to win. The drawing drum is emptied after the 8 p.m. drawings on Sundays.
Those crazy-popular, summer Hawaiian shirts can be freebies for you this month, through June 30, by playing at the El Cortez downtown. Designated jackpot winners can select a complimentary Hawaiian Shirt, available in six different styles, as a gift. Designated jackpots vary from $200-$300 depending on the machine denomination. Complete rules and details are posted in the casino at Jackie’s Club booth. Hawaiian shirt winners also receive a drawing entry ticket for Saturday night drawings. A "Big Screen HDTV" and four $500 cash prizes are awarded every Saturday night at 8 p.m. Sign up as a new member of Jackie’s Club and receive a free deck of cards this month, too.
