Station Casinos will be filling stockings with cash for Christmas and the New Year now through Dec. 31 during the “$1 million Holiday Cash Giveaway.” 

Players can earn entries now through the end of the contest by playing slots, video poker, table games, bingo, live poker and with select race and sports bets.

In addition to earned entries that are valid for the duration of the contest, everyone will receive 10 free entries each drawing day just for swiping a Boarding Pass card at a rewards kiosk. The 10 free entries are only valid for the same day as the swipe.

Drawings are being held every night at 8:15 at the following properties: Boulder Station, Green Valley Ranch, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station, Texas Station, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson until the end of the contest. There will be 162 winners across all properties announced every night for the following cash prizes:

45 will win $1,000 each; 72 will win $500 each; 45 will win $350 each. That breaks down to 18 winners per property. Winners have 24 hours to claim their prizes. Complete rules are available at each property’s Boarding Pass Rewards Center.
