Stations, Fiestas offering millions through daily swipe giveaways

Station Casinos is running two simultaneous multiproperty promotions through Jan. 10. The first is the "$3 Million Daily Super Swipe Giveaway." Each day, players may swipe their Boarding Pass or Amigo Club card at kiosks within the 10 Station and Fiesta casinos. Prizes may be free slot play, cash (up to $10,000), free points, bingo blue packs, drawing entries (see next item), point multipliers (up to 7x points), and food vouchers (up to $50 food credit.) Every swipe is a winner, and you may only win once per day.

Each Saturday at 8:15 p.m. through Jan. 10, the same 10 Station and Fiesta casinos will hold their "$1.1 Million Swipe N Win Drawings." Entries may be earned by playing slot or video poker machines, table games, or through the daily swipes listed above. Ten winners, who must be present, will be called at each property. Nine of the 10 players will win between $1,000 (or $1,200 free slot play) and $10,000 (or $10,500 free slot play). The 10th winner has a 1-in-10 chance at $50,000 and a 9-in-10 chance at $2,000 (or $2,200 free slot play). Boarding Pass members receive one entry for every 50 points earned on their cards, plus upper tier members have their entries automatically multiplied. Gold Card members earn 2x entries, Platinum 3x, President and Macho 4x, and Chairman and El Presidente 5x. The virtual barrels are emptied each week following the drawing, except that for the Jan. 10 drawings, all entries earned since Dec. 14 count.

Jerry's Nugget will have two drawings on New Year's Eve, and players can now start earning entries. The first drawing for $500 and $1,000 will be at 9:30 p.m., the second at 10:30 p.m. for $1,000 and $1,500. Players receive one entry for every 100 daily points ($100 coin-in) earned on their cards. Players earning 4,000 daily points receive 25 additional entries. Also on New Year's Eve, the casino will give away $100 to each of 50 randomly selected players from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Sam's Town players earning 300 points ($300-$600 coin-in; no point redemption required) on Monday or Tuesday receive a holiday cookie jar; limit four per day. Rampart players earning 500 points ($1,000 coin-in on slots, $2,000 coin-in on video poker) on Sunday can pick up a digital camera, limit one per day.

On Monday, Ellis Island is giving away $500 in cash. On the next two Sundays, the casino is giving away $200 in gasoline cards. Players can get entries to both drawings with every 500 points earned. All drawings take place at 9 p.m., and please check at the booth for additional rules.

And Bob and Jeff wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
