Casinos battle over points days

Sep 14, 2004 3:12 AM

Bonus point days are once again becoming highly competitive, especially among locals casinos. The Las Vegas Club downtown disappeared from the bonus point scene for quite awhile is now offering double points every Monday from 6 p.m. to midnight during Monday Night Football events.

Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho have opened up 5x points once again to the general public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for the entire month of September. You must sign up or have an Amigo card and swipe your card through the Points Plus Kiosk to activate your multi-points.

The Bighorn and Longhorn Casinos are running double points Monday through Thursday and triple points on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through the end of October. For a complete list of bonus point specials, see the list at the conclusion of this column.

Binion’s Horseshoe has kicked off yet another new promotion. "Spinning for Cash" drawings will be conducted three times a day for four cash prizes per drawing through Nov. 27. Winners of the three daily drawings will spin the "Horseshoe Cash Wheel" to collect their $25-$500 prizes. Winners of $500, $300 and $200 will be automatically entered into the grand prize drawing for cash prizes and a 2004 BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle.

These top prize winners also receive a two-night stay at Binion’s Horseshoe for December 12-13 to enter the grand prize drawings. One entry is given to each new Horseshoe Club member for enrolling. Additional entries can be earned for every 200 bonus points accumulated while playing slots. Customers can also obtain entries by playing table games, staying in the hotel or dining in Binion’s restaurants.

Back for another year, The Palms rewards card players during Monday Night Football. The "Football Cash Bash" is held in the Poker Room on Sunday and Monday nights. All seated poker players using a Club Palms card get a free entry into the drawings. A winner is drawn every time either team scores a touchdown or field goal for a $100-$500 cash prize.

In addition to The Cannery mentioned last week, players at Rampart Casino in Summerlin can earn free logo jackets in September on Mondays and Wednesdays. Earn 700 points on the same day and receive one free jacket in your choice of tan or blue. 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 Saturdays and Sundays. Earn and redeem 500 points on any weekend in September to receive a logo jacket. These are also limited to one jacket per day.

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