The Plaza Casino in Las Vegas is taking care of its outdated equipment and at the same time, preserving Sin City heritage. In a promotion lasting throughout the month of October, this casino announced it’s giving away 12 vintage slot machines. All players need to do is make sure to meet the terms of the promo, and complete the challenges.
- Plaza Casino giving 12 vintage slot machines away to its players.
- A two-part October promotion will take place in the Plaza Casino for this occasion.
- The establishment is clearing out vintage equipment and preserving history in one move.
What Does the Plaza Have to Say?
The Plaza Hotel & Casino came forward with the promotion mid-September, giving interested players enough time to inform themselves on the particulars. The hotel needed to part ways with some ancient coin slots, video poker, and keno machines crowding the floor so they decided to do it in a fun and somewhat philanthropic way.
Some casinos still include Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, and Catch the Heat, all of which are vintage game variants. The Plaza CEO, Jonathan Jossel, came forward with a statement and clarification about the promo machines – some being more than 25 years old – and why they are being removed.
The slot machines, while popular, are not compatible with today’s gaming technology.
Sorry tourists, but being a Nevada resident is one of the key terms of the promo. On a further note, the casino explicitly illustrated the intention behind this approach of gifting the slot machines to its player pool:
These machines are a part of Vegas history, and we wanted to give our locals a chance to have their own piece of our city’s great legacy.
Play to Win a Vintage Slot Machine
Two separate gameplay events will determine the winners of the vintage slots.
Video Poker Tournament
One way to win is a video poker tournament and is set to take place each Tuesday in October. Only Royal Rewards members can enter. Lower-tier players at the Jack and Queen levels will need to earn 20 points on the day of the tournament to join, while higher-tiered King and Ace players can freely enroll.
What do winners get?
- 1st Prize: The winner of the competition is also the winner of one of four coin slot machines.
- 2nd Prize: Second-ranked tournament participants will receive $250 of free slot play each.
October Point Challenge
The second side of this endeavor is the October Point Challenge promotion. This part is for the casino’s regular higher volume Royal Rewards players.
From October 1st to the 29th, gamblers will earn points as usually playing slots, video poker, and video keno. At the end of the month, the points get tallied, and the top eight spots will all win coin slot machines.
Earning Points and Other Terms Of The Promotion
It is essential to point out that requirements for participants include 21 years of age, and having a Nevada ID or other proof of being Nevada residents.
All players are required to be part of the casino’s Royal Rewards program, as well. Contestants will want to take into account the specific point accrual system outlined in this chart.
