Starting today, M Resort is giving you "The Royal Treatment" on the first three Fridays in November. Royal flushes (maximum coins, no wild cards) receive a 1,000-coin free play bonus. A few machines are excluded (check for stickers). On multi-line games, you may win on any or all lines, up to a $5,000 free play limit per deal.
The Silverton's "Fall Feast" features drawings every Thursday and Saturday night in November. At each 7:30 p.m. drawing, 10 winners (who must be present) will be selected, with a top prize of $5,000-$10,000 cash (actual amount based on the number of points the winner earned on drawing day). Other prizes range from $75-$750 in free play or $100-$1,000 in dining credits.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday through Nov. 29, the Palms is holding its "$250K Great Gift Card" promotion. Players may earn up to five gift cards, from $5 to $100 (total $195), for playing slots or video poker. Players wishing to earn all five cards must earn 35,100 points ($35,100 coin-in; no point redemption required) at video poker (some machines excluded) or 13,600 points ($13,600 coin-in) at slots. A variety of gift cards are available in each denomination, including Macy's, Visa, Sears, McDonalds and many others.
Also throughout November (excluding Fridays and Saturdays), the Palms is offering "Video Poker Bingo." Cards come in four denominations, from 1¢-2¢ to $1 and up. Each card is a 5x5 grid (with a "free" center square) listing hands such as full house, four aces, royal flush, etc. When you get a qualifying hand, you must call an attendant to mark the appropriate square. Completed cards earn from $55 to $1,100 in free play. Should you not complete the card, filling any of the 10 rows or columns earns lesser prizes. Again, some video poker machines are excluded from this promotion. When you complete one card, you may get another and start all over again.
Twice every Saturday (6:15 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.) in November, The Orleans will draw five names to win up to $10,000 cash. Entries can be earned playing slots or at the tables, and all winners must be present to win.
The El Cortez is giving away $25,000 on Dec. 18, including a $5,000 first prize. Players receive one entry for every 5,000 points ($5,000 coin-in) earned in October or November.
