There are still good deals to be found for football specials.

Here’s a good one downtown: Get your food and bar bill refunded with free slot play on football game days when you eat or drink at Benny’s Bullpen inside Binion’s Gambling Hall, or Chicago Brewing Company inside the 4 Queens.

The play is available every game day, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday before 10 p.m. Minimum amount is $20 and max is $50 for the free slot play rebate of your bill. You also get a $10 table games match play.

Under the best of circumstances you could watch a good game, enjoy some fine food and drinks, win your game bet, cash in on your free play slot rebate, perhaps do well and come out ahead overall! Then if you win the match play bet, it’s pure gravy!

El Cortez: Throughout October, club members winning a jackpot of $200 or more on a slot machine, $200 or more on a video poker 5-cent or lower denomination machine, $300 or more on a video poker 10-cent or higher denomination machine or $200 or more on live keno will receive a free box of Russell Stover candy.Or you can upgrade with two prize tickets to a box of See’s.

All jackpot winners will also receive an entry into the weekly Saturday night 50” LCD HDTV giveaway and $2,000 cash prize drawing. Visit the Club Cortez booth for additional information and to redeem tickets.

Tropicana: Play slot/video reels and at the end of each month, you’ll be sent a rebate check for 20% of your net losses, redeemable at the resort for cash. No one likes to lose, but if you do, you may be hard pressed to find a better rebate offer than this. As of Oct. 1, they will also match your top tier status with any other club, which will remain intact for 90 days, then based on your future play.

The Plus Locals Reward Program also includes a 50% discount at the buffet for all card tier levels, 2-for-tickets for shows, spa and salon discounts, and a host of new additional benefits for locals.
