Giveaways heat up in casinos

Nov 9, 2004 4:49 AM

Last week we mentioned the start of casino jackets and winter-wear giveaways with a jacket promotion now running at the El Cortez. Let’s add two more downtown casinos to the jacket giveaway list. The Plaza teams up with its sister casino, the Vegas Club (formerly known as the Las Vegas Club), giving away logo denim jackets to jackpot winners. Hit a jackpot of $200 or more on slots, video poker or keno (or $500 or more on bingo at the Plaza) and win a denim logo jacket. Winners also receive a promotional ticket for Saturday night cash and prize drawings. Details are posted at the Barrick Play Club booths.

You can also warm up with sweatshirt giveaways at Rampart Casino (in Summerlin) and its sister casino, The Cannery, (in North Las Vegas.) Both casinos are giving away nice logo sweatshirts during November. Earn just 250 same-day points on any Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday and pick a sweatshirt from three color choices. Keep the earned points, too!

On the other side of town, Nevada Palace is giving away fleece pullovers this month on Tuesdays and Sundays. Just earn 500 same-day points on your Player’s Circle slot club account for your free gift. Again, no points need to be redeemed. The casino also hosts Friday night cash drawings at 8 p.m. this month. Check the club booth for complete details.

This week is Holiday Gift Shoppe time at MGM/Mirage casino hotels. If you’ve been a player at New York-New York, MGM Grand, Bellagio, Mirage or TI (Treasure Island), chances are you may qualify for extra free gifts with a shopping spree held this week. All MGM Mirage Players Club members have been receiving one Holiday Gift Shoppe point for every Players Club point earned at MGM Mirage Las Vegas properties from Jan. 1, 2004, ending Nov. 14 at noon. Holiday Gift Shoppe points are earned in addition to cashback points and regular comps. Gift Shoppe points may now be redeemed at the Gift Shoppe locations at NY-NY, MGM Grand, Bellagio, Mirage, and TI and must be redeemed by the Players Club member who earned them. Unredeemed Gift Shoppe points expire on Nov. 14, 2004 at noon.

The Venetian’s Grazie Gift Point Shopping Spree is also being held this week through Nov. 14. The program is similar to the MGM’s in that extra points are earned toward gifts that can be redeemed only through this week.

Last but not least, pick up a free pie on Nov. 13 or Sunday, Nov. 14 at Casino MonteLago. Earn just 50 points on your Club Uno account either day between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. and take home a delicious nine inch pumpkin pie just in time for the holidays. The offer is available to both new and existing club members but only while supplies last.

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