Stations, Fiestas combine for free '$150,000 Daily Slot Tournament'

Station Casinos is running a combined four-property "$150,000 Daily Slot Tournament" through Feb. 26. Monday play is at Green Valley Ranch, Tuesday is at Sunset Station, Wednesday is at Boulder Station and Thursday is at Fiesta Henderson. One daily five-minute entry is free to every Boarding Pass or Amigo Club cardholder, and up to two additional free entries may be earned with slot play. Five winners share $2,500 daily. Ten grand prize winners share $124,000 (including a $100,000 first prize). Although it is a three-week event (and the first week already has passed), the grand prize winners are determined by the sum of your best two scores at each property, so everyone still has a fair shot at the grand prizes.

Through Feb. 28, Palms slot players can redeem 1,600 points ($1,600 coin-in, earned beginning Feb. 10) for $4 in cash ($1 minimum redemption) or $24 in free slot play ($3 minimum redemption). Video poker players can redeem 1,600 points for $2 in cash ($1 minimum) or $3 in free slot play ($3 minimum redemption). There is a redemption limit of $1,000 per-person per-day, and all slot and video poker machines in the casino are eligible.

In honor of Valentine's Day, Jerry's Nugget is paying blackjack players 2-to-1 on all naturals in hearts on Saturday, plus all video poker players receive a $25 bonus for a straight flush in hearts and a $500 extra payout for a royal flush in hearts.

Blackjack players hitting eleven naturals this month at the Plaza or Vegas Club will receive a logo sweatshirt, and anyone hitting 21 naturals gets a bottle of Tommy Bahama Rum, so make sure you pick a special "blackjack card" from the dealer when you play. The casino also is paying out 10 times the initial bet when a player gets two blackjacks in a row

On Sunday, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson will be giving away $50 every minute from 7 to 9 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday, the Hard Rock Hotel is awarding $100 to randomly selected players once per hour from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Cannery is 5 years old this month. On Saturday, Thursday and Feb. 21, 25, 26, and 28, players can swipe their C.A.N. Club cards once per day to win up to $15,000 in cash and prizes.

Throughout the "NASCAR Ticket Giveaway" Feb. 17-19 at Arizona Charlie's Boulder and Arizona Charlie's Decatur, slot and video poker players can earn entries to win one of 20 pairs of tickets to the Shelby 427 race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 1.
