Dining Certificates Awarded for Shopping at Miracle Mile Shops
’Tis the season to shop ’til you drop and get a jump on your holiday gift buying. Take advantage of the Shop & Eat Miracle Mile Shops Reward promotion going on at Planet Hollywood. Customers who spend $200 or more at participating merchants will receive a $20 dining certificate valid at PBR Rock Bar & Grill. Just present your same-day receipts at the customer service desk. As you shop, don’t miss the beautiful blue hue that has taken over the fountain in between regularly scheduled water shows in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month. Throughout November, patrons are encouraged to toss in their loose change as part of the center’s Caring, Giving, Changing Campaign.
Fremont Hotel & Casino Dealing New Form of Blackjack
Looking for a new table game? Change It 21 is now on the gaming floor at downtown’s Fremont Hotel & Casino. If blackjack is your game of choice, give this new twist on the traditional game a try. It is dealt as a regular game of 21 but players can exchange one of their cards for a new one by telling the dealer which of your two cards you want to switch. You must pay a “fee” of half your bet. Once the card is changed, it’s back to the original game, allowing you to split or double, but you may not double your hand after the split. The dealer must hit on 17 and the payoff for getting a blackjack is 6:5. Currently, Change It 21 is in a mandatory testing period before it goes into the trial mode, which could last up to 180 days.
