ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Earning a year’s salary is not easy.
For many, it means long days and sometimes late nights trying to do what has to be done to make ends meet.
But this month, Isleta Resort & Casino and its sister location, Palace West, are trying to make life a little easier by offering patrons a chance at a year’s pay.
Earn your “Get Away with a Year’s Pay” entries from Sunday, Aug. 3 through Aug. 31 by playing your favorite slot machine, table games, bingo or poker. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 2-8 p.m. two winners will be selected every two hours for “A Day’s Free Play” valued at $250. Winners will have seven minutes to claim their prizes at the Isleta Eagle Player’s Club.
