So here you are, in the midst of the “new-normal.” Modified safety precautions, social distancing and seemingly more hand sanitizing stations than you’d ever seen in a casino before.
The coronavirus provided the state’s only gambling drought in 89 years. However, winners were thrust in the spotlight during Las Vegas’ big week back. The doors opened June 4, but it didn’t take long for the excitement to ramp up as a player at Caesars Palace hit for $670,637 on a major progressive jackpot the next day.
While some things change, the winning in Vegas stays the same. To that end, several casinos have remand up their promotions for its customers in the various loyalty programs. Here’s a look at a few of those:
June Bonus Multiplier Days: As a welcome back, Station Casinos shelling out bonus multiplier days throughout June. On Thursdays and Sundays earn 10x points on slots and video poker with no limit.
Home Is Where The Heart Is: Are you now a self-proclaimed master-chef, after spending extensive time-in during quarantine? If your answer is yes, Stations wants to give you some cookware during its monthly gift giveaway. If your answer is no, this is a good incentive to learn.
If you earn 300 same-day base points, the following can be yours:
• June 12: 9” X 13” glass baking dish that comes with matching lids
• June 19: 8” X 8” glass baking dish that comes with matching lids
• June 26: Insulated food carrier which holds two glass baking dishes (this would be perfect for those two glass dishes you received earlier, wouldn’t it?).
Both of these promotions are valid at Red Rock, Green Valley Ranch, Palace, Boulder, Sunset or Santa Fe.
5X Every Day: Caesars loyalty players can take advantage of a 5x multiplier on rewards credits, tier credits and “Great Gift Wrap Up Points” through June 30 at any participating Caesars property.
Old School Fun Package: So, the Plaza misses you, and wants you to book a trip downtown. You will get some perks with your stay by booking before August 31 for a date before December 29. There’s a $25 daily food and beverage credit, $75 daily bingo match play and $10 free slot play. All you have to do is use the booking code “FUN20” when you make your reservation.
Mystery Multiplier: You’ve been at home for weeks, and now it’s time to build those points back up. Multiply your points up to 10x every Wednesday for a maximum of 25,000 points throughout the month of June.
Tacos and Tequila Tuesdays: Let’s face it, a major bummer that resulted from quarantining was missing out on numerous Taco Tuesday’s. Ellis Island wants to make up for lost time. For $5 you can fill up on two street tacos and wash it down it down with a shot of Jose Cuervo at Julio’s Tacos between 11 a.m –11 p.m.
50+ Club: If you have made it to the “Golden Age” you may want to consider treating yourself to Ellis Island’s 50+ Club. Earn 50 base points and simultaneously receive $5 in free play. You also get 20 percent off any single entree in the Cafe or BBQ. For your drink, choose between free coffee, a glass of wine or an Ellis Island 20 oz. beer.
While it’s impossible to say if things will ever get back to pre-COVID-19 “normal,” it is nice to see a bit of normalcy come back to the lives of many. You can expect other casinos to ramp up their player loyalty program promos as they reopen.
