Real Deals: Las Vegas Casino bargains and promotions

Oct 9, 2012 3:00 AM

Fifth Street Gaming, which owns and operates the Lucky Club Casino & Hotel, Silver Nugget Casino and Opera House Casino, recently announced an aggressive new slot club linking all three properties.

“My Points” (the new club name) is a strong club for players offering one of the best cash back programs in the city. In terms of cash back percentages, $1 coin-in on slots or video poker earns 3 points, and 1,000 earns $1 in cash back, free play or comps, equal to a .30 return.

To introduce the new club, they are running an even better special promotion through December where 750 points (instead of the normal 1,000) earns $1 in free slot play or bingo, equal to a .375 return. That’s top notch among slot clubs!

Table game and bingo players (bingo is available at the Silver Nugget) are now also earning points for your play. Bingo earns 5 points for every dollar spent. Table game players earn points based on a formula for average bet and length of time played. New “My Points” members signing up at any of the three casinos automatically receive up to $100 in free slot play (randomly awarded.)

El Cortez

“Jackie’s Jackets for Jackpot Winners” is always a big promotion every October. Throughout the month, Club Cortez players winning a jackpot of $200 or more on a slot machine, $200 or more jackpot on a video poker five-cent or lower denominations, $300 or more on a video poker 10-cent or higher denominations or $200 or more on live keno will receive a free El Cortez-logo jacket.

All jackpot winners will also receive an entry into the weekly Saturday night 40" LCD HDTV giveaway and $2,000 cash prize drawing. See Club Cortez for additional information and to redeem jacket tickets.

In celebration of legendary casino owner Jackie Gaughan’s 92nd birthday, the casino/resort will serve free birthday cake and champagne for all guests Wednesday, Oct. 24 from noon to 6 p.m. Guests can also sign a giant birthday card to celebrate one of Las Vegas’ original pioneers.

South Point

Virtual NASCAR racing takes place every Sunday through Thursday this month at 3:30, 4:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Earn 50 points to qualify for the race and win a share of $400,000 in free play.

Station Casinos

Returning is the 10 points for every $1 on slots promotion along with 6 points for every $1 on video poker at all properties for “seniors,” age 50+ every Wednesday in October. If you qualify, age-wise, swipe at any kiosk to activate the point special.

Guests can also play in $30,000 free slot tournaments from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. The top 50 scores win cash at each casino with a $1,000 top prize. Wednesdays for seniors is half-point dining at most company owned restaurants all day too. Fiesta Rancho and Henderson resorts are included in the promotions.

Palace Station

Win up to $1,000 every Thursday playing in a free video poker tournament. Session times run from noon to 8 p.m. Cash prizes are awarded for the top 10 scores with the first place winner receiving $1,000 cash.
