The D Las Vegas (formerly Fitzgeralds): Enter the “$25,000 NASCAR Pick-the-Winner Giveaway,” from Monday, March 4 through March 10. Players can show their support for favorite drivers by earning betting tickets on table games, machines, keno and more, and entering them into a $25,000 prize pool which will be awarded in non-taxable play-till-you-lose promotional chips or free slot play. There is no limit to the number of tickets players can earn in the casino and each ticket represents a bet, so there is no limit to the number of drivers a participant selects. When the finish line has been crossed at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the race results are in, the $25,000 pool will be divided among those who bet on the winning driver. Players who bet on the runners up still have a shot at winning a $1,000 cash consolation prize. Ten tickets will be drawn from the drums, and the $1,000 pool will be divided by those who are present. Bettors can earn individual tickets to play in the $25,000 NASCAR Pick-the-Winner Giveaway in the following ways: every 100 points earned on machines; every $300 buy in on table games; $25+ winning on natural blackjack; $100+ winning field bet on craps and every $100 wagered in keno.
