“We’re a brand-new hotel-casino that cherishes its rich history—and that’s why our first major casino promotion offered our guests a choice between a spectacular classic car and its modern-day counterpart,” explained Seth Schorr, CEO, Downtown Grand.

This summer, Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino is celebrating six months of operations by offering MY POINTS Downtown Grand members the chance to win a brand-new 2014 Tesla S. Coveted for its high-design body style and superb engineering; the Tesla being given away by Downtown Grand is a forward-thinking, environmentally conscious vehicle that complements the innovative Project 100—the Tesla S car-sharing program—announced in conjunction with Las Vegas’ Downtown Project last year. In addition, Downtown3rd, the new metropolitan neighborhood in the heart of downtown Las Vegas adjacent to Downtown Grand, is currently exploring the possibility of installing Tesla charging stations in the coming months.

At the end of April, Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino gave away a brand-new, silver 2013 Corvette. Thomas Robertson of Las Vegas won the drawing, which was held Saturday, April 26, at 9 p.m.

To be eligible to enter the drawing, individuals were required to be MY POINTS Downtown Grand members, be present to win at the drawing and have a rated play session the day of the drawing starting at 7 p.m. to activate their drawing tickets. Qualified players earned one virtual drawing ticket for every 1,000 points earned. Ten grand-prize finalists were selected at Saturday’s drawing, and each finalist was given the opportunity to choose one of 10 envelopes. All ten finalists opened their envelope simultaneously to reveal their prize. The other nine of the finalists received complimentary slot play or table game promotional chips.

Said Robertson, “I never dreamed I’d win a car like this!”

This giveaway follows March's drawing, which awarded a local Las Vegan with a classic, silver 1966 Corvette. That winner had the choice of selecting either the 1966 or 2013 Corvette or a $25,000 cash prize.

“We’re a brand-new hotel-casino that cherishes its rich history—and that’s why our first major casino promotion offered our guests a choice between a spectacular classic car and its modern-day counterpart,” explained Seth Schorr, CEO, Downtown Grand. “Like all the experiences we present our customers at Downtown Grand, we carefully curate the cars offered in our casino promotions to reflect that unique combination of urban sophistication and old-school class we offer our guests, each and every day.”
