It’s a poker Fiesta!

Sep 27, 2004 12:37 PM

Poker is one of the hottest games in the casinos. Seems everyone wants to learn to play. Fiestas are the latest to enter the Poker frenzy adding tables at both Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho. Fiesta Henderson has two live poker tables featuring "Texas Hold’em" and "Seven Card Stud." Limits range from $2-$4 for Texas Hold’em and $1-$5 for Seven Card Stud. The tables are located in each pit area and are available 24 hours. Fiesta Rancho has two live poker tables featuring only Texas Hold’em with limits ranging from $2-$4. They are located in the pit area and are also open 24 hours.

Get your gifts! Player enticements may be at an all-time high in Las Vegas. The Lady Luck Casino downtown kicks off a new promotion beginning today encouraging new members to sign up for a Mad Money slot club card and receive a premium logo coffee mug as a gift. The promotion is scheduled to run through December, but you must be a first time new club member to get the gift. It’s even possible to "double dip" if you act quickly. Through September 30, new members can collect both a water bottle and the coffee mug.

The Imperial Palace on the Strip is rewarding all players who earn a minimum of 200 points during a current trip with a complimentary mystery gift. The promotion runs through September and October and no points are deducted from your account for the gift.

Hit a jackpot of $1,000 or more at Tuscany Casino and collect a backpack cooler as a gift.

Beginning October 1, the New Frontier is offering players, after earning 300 points within a 24 hour time period, their choice from a trio of porcelain Christmas holiday keepsake boxes. Collect from one to all three while quantities last. The casino also kicks off "Win Your Weight in Dollar Tokens," a three-month promotion running through Dec. 25. Players earn drawing entries for a chance to win some heavy cash. Entries are earned throughout the casino (slots, pit, race and sports, bingo, keno) and one free entry is given to each new Rewards Cub card enrollment. Existing club members can weigh-in too and request one free daily entry by visiting the New Frontier Rewards Club booth.

On the 5th, 15th and 25th of October, November and December, drawings will be held at 8 p.m. The winner will step up to the scale to be weighed. Next to that scale is another scale where dollar tokens will be piled up until both scale registers match.

In other poker news, both the Monte Carlo and the Excalibur have gone to complete non-smoking in the card rooms.

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