Several interesting promotions are taking place at Jerry's Nugget. Every hour from 4 to 10 p.m. Sundays, one random player will be chosen to win a Hot Shot Prize Packet. The packets contain between $25 and $500 in cash, free meals and desserts, free wine and up to 1,000 More Club points. Participants automatically are entered in the game when playing any slot, video poker, or video keno machine within the game's hours. The casino also is offering a card-of-the-day promotion this month. Any video poker player will receive a bonus payout ($5 for nickels, $10 for quarters and $20 for dollars) when hitting a four-of-a-kind containing the card of the day, which is posted throughout the casino. Finally, on May 5, the casino will draw for 15 $1,000 cash prizes. Entries will be distributed throughout the casino beginning Saturday. Three drawing sessions, with five winners at each, will occur at 6:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. May 5, and participants must be present to win.
