Station Casinos is running two simultaneous point marathons over the next several weeks. The 10 Boarding Pass members who earn the most points from Monday through Feb. 10 at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station, Santa Fe Station, Green Valley Ranch or Red Rock Resort will win from $1,500 to $25,000. The top 100 point earners from Jan. 14 to Feb. 29 will win from $1,500 to $100,000.
The Hard Rock Hotel is giving away $50,000 on Sunday, including a $30,000 first prize, but to be eligible for this drawing, you must earn at least 25,000 base points ($25,000 coin-in on slots, $50,000 coin-in on video poker) over today and Saturday. Additional play improves your chances. Ten winners will be drawn at a time to be announced.
On Tuesday and Thursday, all Cannery players earning 299 points ($299 coin-in; no point redemption required) can pick up a set of headphones. There is a limit of one per person per day. Players earning 250 points ($500-$1,000) at the Rampart on Tuesdays and Thursdays will receive a "Concept Health Scale."
Super Bowl bettors making a $20 bet on the Super Parlay Card at Jerry's Nugget will receive an officially licensed NFL hat.
Several readers of last week's column regarding the new Club Coast (the players club at Gold Coast, Orleans, Suncoast and Sam's Town) have asked us about how many points Sapphire members (who always receive double points) and Emerald members (who always receive triple points) receive on days when all members are receiving 7x points. Sorry Emerald players, but you do not get 21x points, just the 7x points that everyone else is receiving.
