From 7-9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in June, 240 Station/Fiesta players will win $500. Every five minutes, one winner will be selected randomly at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Sunset Station, Texas Station, Santa Fe Station, Green Valley Ranch, Red Rock Resort, Aliante Station, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson. You must be playing with your Boarding Pass/Amigo card to win. At 9:15 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays, each of the 10 casinos will give away five $1,000 cash prizes as well as one combined grand prize of $25,000. Entries can be earned at slots, tables, live poker and bingo, and all entries are valid for both (winner-must-be-present) weekend drawings.
The Palms has made several changes to its players club. The good news is that Club Palms points earned from June 1 may be redeemed for free play at a rate of 400 points per dollar (which equals a 0.25 percent rebate). They also can be used for comps as before. Be aware, however, that all unused points earned prior to June 1 will expire on May 31, 2010. To redeem these points for comps (only) you need to visit kiosks found throughout the casino. All machines earn points, but 100-percent games and NSU Deuces Wild games do not award extra points on bonus point days (see below).
Every 8,334 points earned at South Point in June may be redeemed for a $50 gasoline card. This is double the usual cashback rate. There are no machine restrictions, but there's a limit of 20 cards per person.
If you can receive a text message, check out the "M Call" promotion at M Resort this month. When iMagine Club members call (877) 977-8436 from noon-to-midnight every day this month, they will be sent a text message telling them how many points they will receive for inserting their cards into any machine at M from noon to 2 a.m. the following day.
Every Monday and Tuesday through the end of the month, Aliante Station players can swipe their cards and win up to $5,000 cash. Other prizes include dining offers, point multipliers, free slot play and up to 100 entries for cash drawings.
