The Palms is awarding $1,000 to each of 10 players at 7 p.m. via an electronic drawing during their "August Swipe & Win Bonanza" on Aug. 16 and 23. To earn entries, players must swipe their cards between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday. A maximum of four entries may be earned per weekly drawing. Each card swipe is a winner, with prizes ranging from car wash tokens, buffet offers, point multipliers, free slot play and other gifts. Players must activate their entries on Thursday prior to 6:50 p.m. and must be present to win.
