Players can win big-time cash in drawing contests all over town during October. Both The Cannery and Rampart Casino are giving away $50,000 this month. The $50,000 Double-Up Cash Drawings at The Cannery and Rampart are held every Thursday at 10 a.m.

Fifty names are selected from the drawing drum and the names are posted. These 50 individuals have until noon on Saturday to claim their $50 cash prize. These $50 cash prizes are doubled if the winner has earned at least 500 points any one day Friday or Saturday prior to the drawing. (Any unclaimed cash prizes will be forfeited.) At 3 p.m. on Sundays, drawings will be held for these 50 individuals for $7,500 wherein 11 names will be drawn for the following prizes: 1-$1,250 winner and 10-$250 winners. These Sunday cash prizes are doubled if the winner has earned at least 500 points on that Sunday (points must be earned before the winners name is selected.) Customers receive one free entry for every 100 points earned each day. Drawing tickets must be in the drum by midnight Wednesdays to be eligible for the Thursday drawings.

It’s a "Paradise Party" downtown at The California. More than $27,000 in total cash prizes will be given away during October. Every Tuesday and Saturday $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to casino players in drawings held at 4 p.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m. $1,000 in cash will be given away at each drawing. There will be a special drawing for round trip airfare for two from Las Vegas to Honolulu or Honolulu to Las Vegas via Vacations-Hawaii following each 8 p.m. drawing. Slot players earn five drawing tickets for every 1,000 points earned on their Players Gold card through Oct. 30.
