One-Day Buick Verano Giveaway Highlights March Promotions at Calder

Tags: Calder News | March 01, 2013

In a month that is loaded with promotions and giveaways, the excitement at Calder Casino & Race Course is sure to reach its apex on Thursday, March 21, when one lucky guest will win a new car in the 2013 Buick Verano Giveaway.

Unlike car giveaways in the past when guests accumulated entries throughout the month, the 2013 Buick Verano Giveaway will be a one-day extravaganza in which Players Club members will earn entries throughout the day, with drawings for the Buick Verano held every 30 minutes from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. A bonus drawing for $1,000 in Free Play will be held that same evening at 10:30 p.m.

Back by popular demand, and with more winners than ever before, March will also feature the return of the highly popular $225,000 Take It or Leave It Giveaway in which guests have a chance to up to $5,000 in cash and Free Play every Saturday throughout the month from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The Take It or Leave It Giveaway allows guests to choose a case with a hidden dollar amount and subsequently eliminate the other cases while negotiating with an unseen ‘banker.’

Recognized in Irish folklore as a mischievous creature known to hoard gold, the Leprechaun has long been a symbol of the mid-March St. Patrick’s Day holiday. As such, every Friday in March, Players Club members earning 25 points will have an opportunity to play the Leprechaun Wallop Kiosk Game where they can thump the mythical elf and win up to $1,000 in Free Play, along with other great prizes.

The $30,000 Hoops Challenge will continue in March as Players Club members can visit a Promo Kiosk from 9 a.m. Sunday until noon Wednesday to choose the winners of select NBA games. The top 20 winners each week to share in over $1,500 in Free Play, with the top 100 at the end of the season to win a share of $10,000 in Free Play.

Also during the month of March, hospitality, bar, restaurant, and casino workers are eligible to win up to $500 in Free Play every Monday as part of the new HIP (Hospitality Industry Professionals) promotion, while $10 Free Play days will be offered on Tuesdays for guests 55 years of age and older; Thursdays for all military, medical, law enforcement, and EMT personnel; and Fridays for all teachers and educators.
