Jerry's Nugget celebrates its 45th anniversary with promotions

In honor of its 45th anniversary Jerry's Nugget is offering several promotions including giving away $10-$100 gasoline cards every day in October. All players earning 1,000 points on slots, video poker or video keno ($1,000 coin-in - no point redemption required) or 140 points (two hours and 36 minutes at $5 average bet) on any live table game can return the next day and play the Gas Card Giveaway (located at the More Club Kiosk) to receive their card. Limit one card reward per day.

The Palms is holding several multiple swipe-and-win promotions this month. On Sunday, players can swipe their card for a chance to spin the "Big Wheel," 7-Eleven gasoline cards, free slot play, food vouchers and other prizes. Tuesday swipe prizes include up to $1,500 in cash and free play, point multipliers (valid on slots only), food vouchers and a chance at the "Pass for Cash" contest (top win $1,000). On Thursdays, players swiping their card can win up to $1,000 in cash, up to $100 in free slot play, a Bistro Buffet, a travel alarm clock or a chance to experience the Hamman (Turkish bath). Prizes (other than cash) must be redeemed in the Food Court from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. -- and all awards should be checked for their expiration date.

Terrible's "$50,000 Spooktacular Cash Giveaway" drawings happen at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday in October. Ten winners will be selected at each drawing to receive either $300 guaranteed or take a chance to win up to $10,000. Players Club members receive one entry for every 250 points ($250 coin-in) earned Sept. 30-Oct. 31.

Every Friday is a "Fabulous Friday" at the Silver Nugget. Players receive 8x slot points, 3-to-1 blackjacks ($30 max payout per hand per person, based on a $10 bet) and "Buy-1-Get-1 Free" bingo specials at all sessions.

For every 5,000 Club Cortez points ($5,000 coin-in) earned in October and November El Cortez players will receive one entry ticket into the "Cash is King" drawing on Dec. 19. First prize is $5,000, second prize is $3,000, third prize is $2,000 and 30 players will win $500. Players must be present to win.

Every Saturday in October both Joker's Wild and Eldorado are giving away a two-night Orleans hotel getaway package including a $150 dinner, two show tickets and a $200 spa treatment. Check at the promotions booth for drawing times and other details.
