August 22, 2001 - Gamers Score Over $60,000 With Promo
Double Play Continues to Pay Big At Majestic
August 22, 2001 - Buffington Harbor, Ind. - Majestic Star Casino's Double Play promotion has turned thousands of casino guests into instant winners in the last few weeks. The nine-week promotion has paid out more than $60,000 so far and, when it comes to an end, will have awarded over $100,000.
Double Play instant scratch and win cards pay up to $1,000 instantly and can be earned by any Club Majestic member. Members who play slots or table games using their Club Majestic card earn points toward game cards. Just 200 points earns a scratch and win card. The casino makes it extra easy to earn scratch and win cards with double point Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. And, any guest who joins Club Majestic for the first time receives a free Double Play scratch and win card just for signing up.
"Double Play has been one of our most popular promotions yet," said Jef Bauer, Vice President of Marketing. "More than 2,800 Club Majestic members have won instant cash and that number will double by the end of the promotion. The instant win element combined with bonus point days and big second-chance drawings make this a great promotion."
The casino's next second-chance drawing will take place on Saturday, September 8, between 4 and 10 p.m. Any non-winning game piece holders are eligible to "complete their Double Play" by bringing their scratch and win cards into the casino on September 8. Winners must be present at the time their name is called to win cash and prizes totaling $12,000 (including a trip for two to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.).
