In light of staggeringly high gas pump prices, Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York has launched a promotion to provides its players with an opportunity to win a year’s worth of gasoline.
“On four different occasions—July 2, July 23, August 13 and September 3—we will draw ten names of prize winners from the database of people who have scanned in their diamond cards," said Steve Mahler, director of marketing at Turning Stone. Diamond cards are free rewards cards, providing Turning Stone members with exclusive benefits such as coupon offers, free entries in monthly promotions and invitations to members-only events and gaming tournaments, according to the casino website.
The first place winner receives 1,000 gallons of gasoline, which Mahler translates to a value of around $4,000. The second through 10th place winners will receive gas cards ranging from $25 to $100. "Winners must be present at the drawings to receive their prize,” Mahler said.
According to the casino press release, guests coming to Turning Stone from June 13 to Sept. 3 can scan their diamond card between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily. They must activate their entry on the day of the drawing between 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. The drawing is set for 7 p.m. During the promotion, thousands more guests will become instant winners of $10 resort prizes in gas cards, food vouchers, free gaming play and car washes.
