New Promotions Top Robust List of Daily Prize Drawings and Promotions

NEW ORLEANS (Friday, July 1, 2011) – Cool off at any of 10 Fair Grounds OTB Casino locations this summer and you could win prizes including a new car or a Carnival Cruise for Two! July features a different promotion every day of the week, with the potential windfalls for Twin Spires Rewards Club members ranging from $25 up to a new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro, a sophisticated sports car with style and power.

The sleek Camaro is the top prize in the “Drive Away a Winner” giveaway, running July 1 to August 27 at the LaPlace, Gretna, Kenner and Chalmette OTB Casino locations. Drawings for cash prizes will be held Friday and Saturday nights, with one lucky winner each Saturday night earning an entry into the grand prize Camaro drawing in Kenner on August 27, in addition to their instant cash prize.

Meanwhile, Twin Spires Club members at any Fair Grounds OTB can receive an entry in the “Experience Carnival This Summer” Carnival Cruise for Two drawing just by purchasing any Crown Royal, Crown Royal Black, Kettle One or Miller Beer product, now through August 26. The cruise winner will be drawn September 2 and notified by phone.

Other July promotions at Fair Grounds OTB Casinos include:

Stash of Cash! (July 1 to August 27) – Twin Spires Club members can win custom handbags stuffed with cash prizes ranging from $25 to $50 at any of three drawings held Friday and Saturday nights at the Boutte, Elmwood, Houma, Metairie and Thibodaux locations.

Royal Flush Windfall (July 1 to August 31) – Video Poker players (with Twin Spires Club cards) that just miss a Royal Flush by one card at the Elmwood OTB Casino are eligible for a turn in the famous Fair Grounds Booth o’ Bucks, where winners take all they can grab from $500 worth of bills flying around in the phone-booth size contraption.

All Fair Grounds promotions are subject to Official Rules, available at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots or any Fair Grounds OTB Casino location.
