This weekend is a triple treat — three-days long and three holidays to celebrate: Chinese New Year on Saturday, Valentine’s Day on Sunday, and President’s Day on Monday. Please note that the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority anticipates more than 275,000 visitors, so expect nice big crowds.
The Rampart is celebrating the Year of the Tiger on Saturday by giving away a Tiger collectible to all players earning 300 same-day points ($600 coin-in slots, $1,200 coin-in video poker; no point redemption required). Each collectible comes with free slot play or cash.
At 10 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday, the Orleans will draw 10 names to spin the Year of the Tiger Cash Wheel and win up to $1,000. Entries are based on tracked slot play from Feb. 1.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day (as well as the rest of the Sundays in February) with the Palms "Sweetheart’s Swipe and Win." Prizes including up to $500 cash, up to $250 in free slot play, spa packages, Visa gift cards, points, point multipliers (normal restrictions apply) and various food offers can be won by swiping your card inside the food court from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Players get one swipe per Sunday.
All Station and Fiesta casinos are offering a guaranteed winner swipe on Saturday. Prizes include up to $1,000 cash, free meals, free room nights free slot play, point multipliers and more.
