March is here, and with it comes the most prolific month in American collegiate sports – March Madness! As always, Las Vegas casinos will be anticipating a boom in patronage from sports bettors. To help draw in those customers, many locations are boasting valuable promotions for gamblers and hotel guests.
From South Point Hotel & Casino on the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, all the way up to the Downtown Grand Las Vegas Casino (in Downtown, of course), travelers can expect to find some lucrative deals and high-profile giveaways taking place all month long, not to mention a throng of viewing parties for opening weekend of the tournament.
South Point Casino March Madness Promos
Patrons of South Point Casino will have a lot to look forward to during March Madness, and all they need is an SP Casino Club player card to take advantage of them.
$600k Progressives Giveaway
To grab a share of the $600k jackpots, club members just need to play their favorite slots this month. A progressive bonus will be steadily rising, guaranteed to pay out before it surpasses $25,000. The progressive will then reset to $10,000 until it’s won again. Each time it’s struck, one other lucky player will receive $25 in free slots play.
At the same time, a $1,000 free play progressive will be growing, guaranteed to strike before it exceeds $2,500. This bonus jackpot also resets immediately, and is estimated to hit, on average, three times per day throughout March.
$4,000 Poker Giveaway
South Point will host ‘Road to the Big Dance’ cash drawings in its live poker room from March 17-20 between the hours of 10:00am and 8:00pm. Every hour, a $100 cash drawing will be held, with all active players in the poker room automatically eligible to win.
March Madness Championship Party
From March 17-19, the South Point Grand Ballroom will be transformed into ‘Hoops Heaven’ to host a massive 3-day party signifying the start of the 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament; aka March Madness. The party is free and open to all aged 21+, and promises the ultimate viewing experience for sports fans. The party will feature betting stations, prize giveaways and drink specials throughout.
Downtown Grand March Madness Promos
Visitors to this Las Vegas casino will find thousands of dollars’ worth of March Madness promotions and a free 2016 Ford Mustang on the line. Again, you’ll only need a player’s club card to participate.
From now through 9:45pm on March 26, members of the Downtown Grand’s player club will receive one entry to the virtual drawing for a brand new 2016 Ford Mustang for every 25 base points generated on slot machines and table games. At 10:00pm that night, three winners will be randomly drawn to select a prize box. One box will contain a miniature blue mustang, signifying the winner of the new car. The other two boxes will award prizes of $1,000 and $500 in free casino play.
Grand Money Madness
Every Friday and Saturday this month, from 7:00pm to midnight, the Las Vegas Casino will host an hourly drawing. All casino goers will receive one entry for every 25 base points accumulated, with the lucky winner spinning the Grand Money Madness Wheel to reveal their prize, worth up to $1,000 in cash.
March Mayhem Viewing Party
Like South Point, Downtown Grand Casino will be hosting a March Mayhem View Party from March 17-19 in the Fremont Room. From 9:00am each day, visitors can watch all of the action unfold on the big screens. Best of all is the $25 all-day buffet that starts daily at 11:00am.
March Madness On The Strip
If you’d rather submerge yourself in the guaranteed masses sure to flood the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll find March Madness parties and promotions going on at all of the major Strip casinos, including Treasure Island, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock, Harrah’s, The Flamingo, and pretty much everywhere else.
However, being The Strip, you can expect to pay a hefty price for entry, with most tickets costing anywhere from $75 to $200 for a single all-day pass.
