Eddie Money, More Valley Sky Theatre Concerts Plus More New Slots, $2,500 STILL Unclaimed

In this week's blog: One $2,500 Super Sunday Parlay Prize still unclaimed; The Oak Ridge Boys, Eddie Money and Charlie Daniels Band coming this summer; enhancements in our Valley Ballroom and more!

Super Sunday $5 Parlay Card – Still Waiting on a $2,500 Winner: We are still waiting for one of the two $2,500 winners to claim his or her Super Sunday Parlay Card prize. One happy camper came forward for half the $5,000 payout and the other – the card was played at the Bodines Race and Sports Book – still has the winning card somewhere and can pocket $2,500 by showing up!

Rumblings about a New Bar in the Convention Center?  It's true – here's what's happening. This coming Monday we'll start tearing out the small and seldom-used stage in the "Sierra" room of our Valley Ballroom. Also going away is the adjacent cramped service bar area and its unsightly "garage door" front. Coming in the next few weeks is an attractive and larger bar area that will enhance service and definitely improve the appearance and functionality of the Valley Ballroom. There will be minimal interruption during the short construction process and we'll keep you posted on the progress.

More New Slots at the Inn
Plants vs. ZombiesSeriously?: We have some new slots coming in next week . . . here's an advance peek . . . Plants vs. Zombies features a Graveyard Bonus (of course!) where players pick tombstones, collecting suns to win one of three progressives and avoiding the brain-craving zombies (a good thing to avoid)!  Zuma features the familiar Zuma frog shooting at an innovative moving ball track. There are incremental progressives and unique Power Frogs – as one might expect! (this all has to be true – we really don't have the creativity to make this up). We will also soon be introducing two new 3-level progressive jackpots at CV Steak Bar and you'll be able to play dollars or quarters while enjoying your favorite cocktail and enjoying basketball, golf or a number of other sports (no, football is over for now) on the flatscreens.

Our Cupid's Cash and Freeplay Promotion is in full swing and the first of two Grand Prize Giveaways is this Friday with drawings at 6 and 8 p.m. During February INN Club members also earn 4X Points on video reels and 2X Points on video slots all day Tuesdays and Triple Points from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays.

Tastefully Simple Gift Basket
Ladies' Night: Hot seat winners at tonight's Ladies' Night festivities from 6 to 9 p.m. will receive a gift basket from Tastefully Simple and with a gourmet food item and handy kitchen utensil. Deanna and Julie will be handing out Valentine coffee mugs to the first 150 ladies who show up - and 20 of these will also have a Free play!  Ladies Night Bingo games are at 6:45, 7:30 & 8:15 p.m. with the first 2 games "paying" $50 in Freeplay and the last game paying $100 Cash.

Monthly Blackjack Tournament Winners: Last night's monthly Blackjack Tournament paid a total of $1,475.00 as all the entry fees went out in prize money. John S. finished first for $740, Richard L. came in 2nd for $440 and 3rd place and $295 went to David B. Our next Monthly Blackjack Tournament is Tuesday, March 11.
