'Even the Odds' promotion looks to attract new 'Trop Plus' members

The Tropicana is kicking off its new "Trop Plus" slot club with an "Even the Odds" promo that will cover first-day slot losses up to $200. This promotion is for new sign-ups only -- players cannot have previously been a member of any Tropicana players club under its current or former names. All eligible losses will be reimbursed via free slot play -- 50 percent the same gaming day and 50 percent beginning three days later. Please read the rules carefully before commencing play.

Earn 100-1,000 same-day points ($100-$1,000 coin-in; no point redemption required) at the Silverton any day in November and receive food certificates ranging from a slice of pizza up to a $40 dining credit. At 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays starting next week, the casino will award more than $120,000 in cash, dining offers and free slot play in its "Fall Feast" drawings. Entries may be earned playing the machines, keno or table games. Check with the Discovery Club for the three separate ways to earn bonus entries.

Beginning Monday, South Point players can begin earning entries in the "$200,000 Great Turkey Hunt." Twice on Tuesdays (4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 9-30), 15 names will be drawn (who must be present) to win $1,000-$5,000. Entries can be earned by swiping your card, playing the machines or with every bingo session purchased.

Station Casino's "$1.8 Million Lighting Fast Cash Giveaway" offers several ways to win cash throughout November. From 6-8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday (beginning Nov. 5), all 10 Station and Fiesta casinos will give out $500 every five minutes to randomly selected players. At 8:15 p.m., there will be a drawing at each casino for five $1,000 cash prizes and one (combined property) $25,000 winner. Finally on Nov. 27, all drawing entries will be eligible for a $250,000 "Strike it Rich Bonus" drawing including a $100,000 grand prize.

If you're going to a casino in a costume this weekend, do not wear a mask (or heavy face makeup) if you are playing at the tables or approaching the cage.
