Casinos offer Mother's Day giveaways

At 4 p.m. Saturday, May 19, 26, 27 and 28 the Silverton is giving away a Mercedes-Benz C230 sports sedan plus additional chances to win up to $10,000. Players, who must claim their prizes by 7 p.m. the night of the drawing, can earn tickets by using their Silverton Discovery Card at slots, video poker, table games, keno and live poker. New members receive 25 free drawing tickets at sign-up, and all Players Club members stopping by the Players Club receive an additional 10 free tickets on Sundays through Thursdays. The drawing drum will be emptied of all tickets after the May 12th and 19th drawing.

This Sunday, Mother's Day, is a big day for bingo giveaways. At all sessions, Sam's Town is giving away a large floral vase to all players making a minimal buy-in. The Gold Coast and Suncoast are giving away 12-inch porcelain dolls, while at South Point the Mother's Day gift is a Lady Bug pill box. If miniature stuffed teddy bears are your Mother's Day bingo gift of choice, then head to Terrible's. Even though all of these gifts are available at all sessions, they are only available "while supplies last" -- so play early in the day if you really want the gift.

Also on Mother's Day, both the Eldorado and Joker's Wild are giving a 100-coin bonus to video poker players hitting a four-of-a-kind in queens. Please check the rules for any limitations.

On Mondays in May, all members of The Club at South Point earning 2,000 points between noon and 8 p.m. will receive a free buffet. The points must be earned, redeemed (and the buffet consumed) on the same day.

Station Casinos has introduced a new progressive Jumbo Bingo Jackpot beginning at $100,000 and growing at least $500 each nonwinner day. Whenever it is hit, the winning player receives $50,000 cash while all Boarding Pass or Amigo Club members playing bingo in a Station or Fiesta casino share the remaining jackpot based on the number of Jumbo Bingo cards they purchased -- at least $25 in free play per card per player. Bingo players at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station, and Red Rock Resort as well as Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson can purchase up to 100 Jumbo Bingo packs ($1 per pack) at the first game of each bingo session.
