Four times every day Circus Circus draws five names to step into the "Whirlwind of Cash" booth and collect as much money as they can, including a bonus bill (indentified by its serial number) worth $500. Players earn five entries for every 50 points ($250 coin-in on slots, $500 coin-in on video poker) accumulated on their Players Club cards. Entries also can be earned at the tables, in the sports book and in the poker room. Drawings take place at noon, 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and winners must be present.
