Station Casinos offering locals rebate to join players club

Is there a Las Vegas resident out there who is not a Station Casinos Boarding Pass member? Well, now is a good time to sign-up. Station Casinos is now running a ($100 maximum) first-day-loss rebate program for new sign-ups who live in Las Vegas, Boulder City, North Las Vegas, Henderson or Pahrump. Just go to the Reward Center at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station, Green Valley Ranch or Red Rock Resort; present your ID, sign up and then find a machine and play. Station Casinos will refund your first day's net loss up to $100 via free-play, which you can access using your card at any machine the next day.

Terrible's final "June Cash Mania" weekly slot tournament is Monday through June 27. All Players Club members are entitled to one free daily round. Members earning 250 basic points ($250 coin-in) the day before get two rounds and those earning 500 points the day before get three rounds. On June 28, the casino will post the names of the 30 top point earners (based on the combined score of their seven best rounds) who will receive $50 to $2,500 in cash or free slot play. Players have 72 hours to redeem their prize.

All Club Coast points earned at the Gold Coast today or from Thursday to June 30 can be redeemed for cashback at a rate of 1,000 points equals $2, which is double the normal redemption rate. Players must redeem the points by July 3 to receive double cash back.

Rampart players earning 200 points ($400-800 coin-in; no point redemption necessary) on Tuesday or Thursday will receive a stainless steel multi-tool set. Tuscany players earning 1,000 points ($1,000 coin-in; no point redemption necessary) on Thursday will receive a $15 food voucher.

Through Sept. 1, all local residents receive 3x basic Total Reward Credits at the Rio. Please be aware, however, that the extra bonus credits do not count toward your tier score, any special credits-for-gift promotions, or the year-end Great Gift Wrap Up program.

The Riviera has introduced "Mad Money Shopping Spree," a new holiday shopping program. Every 300 points ($300 coin-in slots, $600 coin-in video poker; no point redemption required) earned through 2008 will entitle the member to $1 in shopping money that can be used at the casino's shopping spree event Nov. 20-24.
