Celebrate Wind Creek’s Rebrand With $2M In Prizes

Written By Kevin Shelly on September 6, 2019

The rebranding of the casino now known as Wind Creek Bethlehem continues with millions in grand opening prizes.

The central giveaways are a $1 million slot sweepstakes drawing set for Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. at the casino, followed by a blackjack tournament with a $500,000 cash prize set for Oct. 19 at 7 p.m.

The former Sand’s Bethlehem property became Wind Creek after it sold earlier in the year to Alabama’s Poarch Band of Creek Indians for $1.3 billion. Wind Creek is the gaming and hospitality arm of the tribe.

The top slots prize in the sweepstakes is awarded as either a 20-year annuity of $500,000 in cash, or $350,000 in cash plus $250,000 in free slot play.

There are also drawings for 24 additional cash winners that will collect between $1,000 and $25,000.

To qualify for the drawing, patrons must earn 500 points through rated slot play during September.

Fridays between 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. offers a chance t automatically qualify. Every hour two winners get a free entry into the prize drawing. Each $5 wagered equals a point.

Players can earn 5x points on Monday.

Activation of entries is between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. Entries are activated by inserting a Rewards Card into any slot machine.

The preliminary tourneys are all on Fridays (Sept. 20, 27, or Oct.4). Times are from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Registration begins at 2 p.m.

Each preliminary tournament offers a $20,000 cash prize and there is a $10,000 cash second prize.

The four top chip-holders from each of the Friday Sit and Go tournaments will move on to the Grand Finale preliminary on Oct. 18 at 9 p.m.

The final is on Saturday, Oct.19 at 7 p.m.

Prizes totaling $750,000, including a $500,000 cash grand prize, are up for grabs.
