M Resort offers free slot tournaments; Orleans has Christmas in July

M Resort is "Reeling in the Years" with free slot tournaments over the next three Fridays and Saturdays (8 a.m.-7 p.m.). This weekend's tournament is based on the '60s, next week's the '70s and the final week's is based on the 1980s. All tournament days have separate prize structures, so you still have a fair chance to win even if you can only participate on one day. There will be 280 winners per day, including 20 hourly prizes up to $200, 50 daily cash prizes ($50-$5,000) plus a $5,000 daily cash drawing at 9 p.m. with a $2,000 grand prize. iMagine Card Reward Club members receive one free entry per day, and up to three additional entries can be earned with every 200 points earned on your card ($200 coin-in; no point redemption required) or with one hour of rated table play.

You can celebrate the "12 Days of Christmas in July" at The Orleans Monday through July 31. Players earning 5,000 points ($5,000 coin-in; no point redemption required) will receive a $25 Macy's gift card, up to a maximum of 10 cards.

The Vegas Club has introduced a new low-limit "Fetish Pit" beginning at 7 p.m. every Thursday through Saturday. Dealers are dressed as "naughty nurses," "sexy school girls," "risqué female cops" or "leather-clad biker chicks" while pole dancers perform on a raised platform.
