Dive in: The Downs Casino offers ‘Summer Splash Cash’ promotion

Splash into summer with some cool promotions at The Downs Racetrack & Casino.

Be part of the “$120,000 Summer Splash Cash” promotion Mondays through Fridays through July 28. On these promotional days, there will be drawings at noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Three winners will be chosen during each drawing to win up to $500. Winners will play a Plinko-type game to determine their cash prize. Prizes range from $50 to $10,000. There will be no July 29 drawing due to the “Weekend of Winners” promotional drawing.

To be part of the “$20,000 Weekend of Winners” promotion, all you have to do is start earning electronic entries daily. Players earn one entry daily with every 50 points they accrue playing their chosen game at The Downs. To amp up your entry chances, play Tuesdays for five times the entries.

On Monday, July 11, in celebration of the casino’s third anniversary, guests will earn seven times the entries. The Downs really turns up the odds July 28 through 30, when patrons will earn 10 times the entries. Players who have accrued points on their Triple Crown Club member cards can redeem 50 of their points for five entries. Twenty winners will be drawn each day, and a $500 prize will be awarded to each winner.

Amp up your points by earning five times the points on Wednesdays and seven times the points on Monday, July 11, as part of the casino’s anniversary celebration. Thursdays are a mystery at The Downs this month during “Mystery Point Multipliers.”

The point multiplier will be in effect for one hour each Thursday at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The amount of the multiplier will be determined by spinning the wheel at the players’ club. Multipliers can be between two times the points to up to 10 times the points. After the wheel is spun, the amount of the multiplier will be announced floor-wide several times to all Triple Crown Club members.

If you’re not yet a Triple Crown Club member, don’t fret. Simply sign up at the players’ club and you could win up to $500 in free play. As a member, you also will receive a newsletter, which will allow you to enjoy your weekly reward.

The winnings continue on Saturdays and Sundays this month with “$27,000 Downs Derby Weekends.” There will be $600 in free play awarded during each virtual derby race, which will pop up on eligible games at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays in July. A prize pool will be shared by players finishing in the win, place, show and fourth finish spots.

The Downs is wishing July babies a happy birthday with two times the points every Tuesday this month. July birthday players who are Triple Crown Club members will also earn a weekly free play reward of $20 or more on Thursdays this month. Spin a virtual wheel at your favorite game to determine your free play amount.
