Hot deals at Tower

The Stratosphere reaches for new heights with a flurry of new casino promotions. Start with a Strato game card. This promotion is played much like Bingo. Pick up a game card from the Ultimate Rewards booth and begin to line up a specific B-I-N-G-O as outlined on the card, such as the letter "T" or letter "L." Letters are filled in by hitting various jackpots, purchasing meals, drinks and show tickets, etc. Complete a "bingo" and win prizes ranging from logo merchandise (T-shirts, travel bags) and nice gift items, or complete the coverall and win $50 in cash.

A nightly drawing is also held for a 42" plasma screen TV. Five drawing tickets are awarded free just by picking up the weekly Strato Game Card. Additional tickets are earned by completing bingo squares on your game card. The drawing for the TV along with three additional prizes is held nightly at 7 p.m. and the winner must be present. The drawing drum is emptied after the drawing every night.

Next, try your luck in the Tower Power daily slot tournament. The tournament is held daily from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the top two finishers from each hour heading to the finals held at 6:15 p.m. The entry fee is $10 for a 10-minute session and the top prize of the day is $400. The second place finisher wins $100 and third place collects a nice logo gift. Hotel guests automatically receive one free entry at check-in.

There’s more. All guests can pick up a Luck Buck’s gaming wallet once per week. The gaming wallet is similar to a "funbook" except that all of the coupons (12 of them) are aimed at gaming, like table game match-plays, slot and video poker bonus gifts, point specials and sports book gift.

While The Mirage is part of the MGM/Mirage Player’s Club, if you earn and redeem your points strictly at The Mirage, you can request your earned cash back in the form of double free play through Sept. 23. The promotion only applies to reel slots and not video poker.

Earn free logo jackets at The Cannery on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in September. Earn 700 points on the same day and receive one free jacket. Keep the earned points, too. There is a limit of one jacket per customer per day.

You can also earn and redeem points for jackets on Sundays. Earn and redeem 500 points on any Sunday in September to receive a logo jacket. These are also limited to one jacket per Sunday.

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