Last but not least holiday

Aug 31, 2004 4:10 AM

The last holiday break of the summer is nearly here. Enjoy it by cooling off with an ice cold one! Players can swipe and win for Pepsi and Coors products this Labor Day weekend at the Palms Casino Resort. From Sept. 1-6, the Palms will host its Labor Day Swipe promotion. Guests can swipe their cards each day at the kiosk located at the Palms Food Court to be eligible to win Coors and Pepsi products and receive a drawing entry.

On Monday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m., a grand prize drawing will be held and 10 lucky winners will collect cash and prizes. Additional drawing entries may be earned through slot play by earning points as posted in the casino. Players may only swipe once per day and must be present to win on Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. for the cash and prize drawings. All swipe prizes are available while supplies last.

You can also win a 12-pack of Pepsi or Diet Pepsi at PT’s taverns and pubs during this Labor Day. Hit a four-of-a-kind at any of PT’s 27 valley locations from Wednesday, Sept. 1 through Monday, Sept. 6 to collect your 12-pack. The complete rules and details are posted.

Binion’s Horseshoe is rewarding hand-paid jackpot winners with free slot tournaments and room accommodations. Hit any hand-paid jackpot from now through the end of November and you’ll receive a complimentary two night hotel stay plus two tournament entries for the $30,000 Winterfest Slot Tournaments to be held from Dec. 10-19. The ”˜Shoe has no TITO (Ticket-In-Ticket-Out) machines so even four deuces on a Deuces Wild machine or a nickel royal qualifies as a hand pay! After a hand paid jackpot you’ll receive a card to fill out and then just call to reserve your free rooms and tournaments for December. In addition, $3,000 will be given away in cash prizes every day of the tournament events including a $1,000 first place daily finisher.

Also downtown, the El Cortez features the "Pyramid of Prizes" for the month of September. Hit a $200 or higher jackpot on slots or $300-plus on video poker and collect a voucher redeemable for jewelry prizes. The more vouchers you collect the better the prizes. Redeem from to 1-10 ticket vouchers at a time. Each jackpot winners also receives an entry into the weekly Saturday night drawings to be eligible to win a big screen HD TV. Four additional winners can take $500 in cash, or if you’re a Nevada resident, you can win a video poker machine in lieu of the cash.

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