Santa Fe Station is giving away five DVD players to pit players every Tuesday in May. Tickets can be earned with every $25 buy-in noon-7:55 p.m. Tuesdays. The drawings take place at 2, 4, 6 and 8 p.m., and winners have 24 hours to claim their prizes.
Fitzgeralds is hosting daily drawings for pit players for a Hawaii Fly-Away, as well as dinners at Don B's Steakhouse and the buffet. Players can earn tickets at all table games and must be present at the 7 p.m. drawings to win.
Every Friday this month, Fiesta Rancho is giving away eight cash prizes up to $500 plus two chances to win up to $10,000 (a $1,000 prize is guaranteed). Amigo Club members earn one entry for every 250 points ($250-$500 coin-in) earned on their cards or for every hour of table play with a $10 bet (up to a maximum of three entries per hour). Winners must be present at the drawing. The Fiesta Henderson is running a similar promotion (with drawings on Saturday nights) through May 26.
In the Hard Rock Hotel's new Back Stage Pass players club, players earn one point for every $1 coin-in on slots and $2 coin-in on video poker, and all local players will receive double points through the end of the summer. Every 500 points can be redeemed for either $1 in cash back or $1.20 in food credit. Any unredeemed points earned before the change have been converted to ensure that players have the same cashback available to them and existing members do not have to obtain a new card.
Players hitting a jackpot of $200-plus at the Vegas Club through this month will receive a voucher good for either a $10 gas card or a $20 electronic store card.
