April might be the month that showers you with dollars during numerous promotions going on at area casinos.

The Downs Racetrack & Casino has several great promotions for patrons this month including its “$100,000 Extreme Cha Ching” game that will run each weekday throughout April. Twenty winners will be chosen every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and 44 winners will be picked every Friday to participate in the game. Each winner will get his or her chance to play the Plinko-style game for his or her chance to win a cash prize between $50 and $10,000.

The “$100,000 Extreme Cha Ching” was inspired by the Plinko game on the game show “The Price Is Right.” Guests can match numbered pucks to their corresponding slots for the chance to win between $50 and $10,000 in cash. Patrons will have more than 500 chances this month to be selected to play the “Extreme Cha Ching” game.

The Downs also will host the “$15,000 Lucky Match” promotion that kicks off at 10 a.m. every Saturday this month. In addition, The Downs also will begin its “$15,000 U-Spin” promotion every Sunday beginning at noon. Both of the promotions will feature the casino’s Power Bonusing Feature that allows guests to participate in each game while never having to leave their favorite slot machines.
