The Orleans, Gold Coast, Sam’s Town and Suncoast are offering “A-May-Zing” drawings this month with winners having a chance to punch their way up to $10,000 cash.

Drawings are held every Saturday in May at all four Coast properties. Drawing times vary at each casino so review the rules and wherever you plan to play. Players can earn entries every day through May 26 and must activate entries at the casino kiosks at least 15 minutes prior to the drawing time on the day of the drawings.

Slot machine players receive one virtual entry for every 50 base points earned each day with their B Connected card properly inserted in their machines. Table games earn one entry for every one hour of rated play with a minimum average bet of $5 and earn one additional entry for each additional $5 average bet.

Participants may receive additional entries for each day of play during the promotional period based on their card level status. They must swipe their cards daily to receive each entry or entries. Also, they must be present to win and have three minutes to identify themselves once their name has been called.

Winners must present a valid photo ID and B Connected card. After the three minutes have expired, a new name will be drawn until a winner has been identified.

Each winner will be allowed to select one sealed cash envelope from the A-May-Zing May drawing board. The cash envelopes will contain prize amounts ranging from $500 to $10,000. Additional bonus punches may also be represented in an envelope.

In this case the participant will keep the cash prize already selected and they will be entitled to a bonus punch. The participant will keep both cash prizes. A cash prize may also contain the words “Take It or Trade It.” With this option the participant must decide whether to keep the current cash prize or surrender it and select another envelope.

If they do select again, the amount in the newly selected envelope is their final prize. A person may only be selected to be a player once per drawing day.


The resort is featuring Random Free Play Giveaways on May 28. One winner will be selected per hour from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Playing with their card properly inserted, the players will receive $100 in free slot play.
