PT rewards are Golden

Aug 3, 2004 3:25 AM

Golden Rewards members at any PT’s Pub can win four tickets to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck race when they earn 2,500 points on their Golden Rewards card. The race is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The CHAMP series race will immediately follow the Craftsman Truck race allowing winners to see two professional races in one evening. Points may be earned throughout the month of August and tickets will be distributed from the PT’s tavern location where the points were earned.

In addition, the top Golden Rewards point earner for the month of August will receive two VIP tickets to view the races from a luxury suite. The suite box will be complete with complimentary food and beverages for the evening. Points will be measured based on cumulative earnings from all 27 tavern locations.

PT’s guests are also eligible to win a free trip for two to Cabo San Lucas as part of the Cabo Wabo Meltdown. By purchasing any drink or shot of Cabo Wabo tequila during the month of August, guests will receive a free entry form. Cabo Wabo tequila, regularly $5, is on sale for $3.50 all month. The Cabo Wabo Meltdown is in honor of Sammy Hagar’s birthday with the drawing held Sept. 1. Winners need not be present and must be 21 years or older for eligibility. There is no limit to the number of entry forms submitted and Golden Reward members may earn additional entries based on their point earnings.

Coast Casinos (Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, Orleans and Suncoast) have extended the following new Coast Club benefits and discounts through Aug. 31: Monday-Thursday, 18 Coast restaurants will discount members’ meals by matching points up to 50 percent. Members also receive 50 percent off seven days a week at all Coast showrooms, Kid’s Tyme and all Coast hotel rooms. Discounts of 10 percent off are available to club members at liquor stores, bowling pro shops and Prestige Travel. To receive the discounts, club members must pay the entire purchase with their points.

Caesars Palace is offering gamers a somewhat rare promotional opportunity. All Connection Club members, not just new members, can receive a free promotional T-shirt by earning 20 points "in a trip" now through Aug. 31. Points are not deducted. Points must be earned on slots and video poker machines as table game play is not considered for this promotion. There is a limit of one T-shirt per person, while supplies last.

Downtown, it’s "Polo’s and Pepsi" at the El Cortez this month. Players winning a jackpot of $200 or more on slots or $300 or more on video poker or live keno will receive an El Cortez monogrammed polo shirt and a six pack of either Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. Winners also receive an entry into the Saturday Night Drawing for a big screen HDTV or your choice of a slot machine or $500 in cash.

Remember, luck seems to come to those who prepare for it.
