>LAS VEGAS, Nevada –- Two years ago Gary Hamm and his wife gambled $200 at the Bellagio.
About two months ago it paid off.
He opened the mailbox at his Tacoma, Wash., home and found an offer from Bellagio for three free nights plus $50 in free play and food and drink credits.
“I was amazed, really,” said Hamm. “Usually you expect to hear from casinos if you gamble a lot of money. We stayed there for three days and really didn’t gamble much.”
