Through Oct.3, players can win up to $1,500 cash or $2,250 free slot play at the Plaza and Vegas Club's "Mystery Money Mania." Entries can be earned playing the machines, at the tables and at bingo. At 7 p.m. every Saturday the Plaza will draw five names to choose from 14 envelopes to win $100-$1,000 in cash. Each winner can keep the amount inside the first selected envelope or select a new envelope -- and all winners can choose a free play option for a 50 percent increase. At 9 p.m. the Vegas Club will hold an identical drawing, and both casinos will do second-chance drawings (Plaza 8 p.m., Vegas Club 10 p.m.) for five $100 free play winners.
