Pick a Pumpkin Patch

Oct 5, 2004 1:30 PM

Suncoast brings back the popular "$250,000 Pumpkin Patch Pick" for the month of October. There will be two drawings every Wednesday in October at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Ten winners at each drawing will select a pumpkin worth $1,000 to $10,000 in cash. In addition, Club Coast members will earn double points from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m. each drawing day. All slots, pit, bingo, race and sports players are eligible. Slot players earn tickets based on payouts for penny slots through $5 and higher machines.

Bingo players receive one entry ticket for any win of $50 or more. Race book players receive one entry for any winning ticket of $50 or more. Sports book players receive one entry for any winning ticket of $100 or more and table game pit players receive one entry ticket at random while in play.

In addition to the Pumpkin Patch Pick drawings at Suncoast, all Club Coast members can collect double points on Columbus Day, Oct. 11, and Halloween, Oct. 31, at the Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, The Orleans and Suncoast.

Downtown players can win logo towels and bath robes at the El Cortez this month. Jackie’s Club members hitting a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, or a $300 or more jackpot on video poker receive one promotion ticket which can be redeemed for a large beach towel. Earn two tickets and collect both the towel and robe. Jackpot winners also receive an entry into the casino’s Saturday night drawings for a 52" high definition TV or one of four slot machines for Nevada residents or $500 cash for non residents.

Also downtown, Binion’s Horseshoe is giving away WSOP (World Series of Poker) travel mugs to new Horseshoe Club member sign-ups after earning their first 1,000 points on the new card. Points must be earned within the first 24 hours of sign-up.
