February fortunes: Isleta Resort & Casino offers big prizes; Route 66 Casino has plenty Valentine’s Day options

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — February is the shortest month of the year so that means just a little less time to take part in some cool promotions that can help put a little more money in your pocket.

Isleta Resort & Casino is spreading the love with its “February Fortune” promotion that runs through Feb. 28. Stop in from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. daily for a chance to win your share of $150,000 based on your Isleta Eagle Players Club level. Earn entries daily by playing your favorite slot machine, table games or poker.
