It’s the most wonderful time of the year for holiday promotions at Pennsylvania casinos.
Indeed, many of you will wish to cozy up by the fire and take advantage of the convenience of PA online casinos.
But for those who want to get out and physically sit down at a table game or in front of a slot machine, keep reading to see some of December’s best promos at Pennsylvania land-based casinos.
Get into the Christmas spirit at Live! casinos
Both Live! Casino locations in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are going big on Christmas Weekend.
Live! Philadelphia starts the festivities with over $10,000 in prizes on Saturday, December 24, including the chance to win a trip to Disney World. Players who earn 500 tier credits between 5 p.m. and 9:55 p.m. will earn a Visa eGift card plus one entry into the grand prize drawing.
Across the state, Live! Pittsburgh’s “Naughty Or Nice” promotion hands out $60,000 in prizes on Christmas Day. Players can earn qualifying entries all month long, leading up to the drawings, where 25 winners will be chosen every hour starting at 5 p.m. The final drawing at 9 p.m. will award the grand prize, a 2022 GMC Terrain SLE.
Live Philadelphia! is doing the same drawing with the top prize being a BMW X3. Players will find out on Christmas Day if they made the naughty ($100 in free slot play) or nice (get to keep chosen gift) list.
All Live! Rewards carded players earn one entry for every 50 tier credits earned. The promotional period is now through Christmas Day. Winners must be present to win.
“Cookies ‘n Cash” for the 50-plus crowd
Players 50 and older have a special offer every Tuesday at Presque Isle Downs & Casino.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the casino draws two winners with prizes ranging from $100 to $500 in free play and $150 to $1,000 in cash.
Players’ first qualifying entry comes after earning just five (5) points on their player’s card. They also receive a free cookie at that time and can win up to four total entries through each qualifying period. Additional entries come each time a player earns 200 more points.
Looking for high-limit drawings on New Year’s Eve?
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is catering to its high limit players on New Year’s Eve.
All High Limit Slots Area players who win a jackpot of $1,200 or higher between now and December 31 (at 10:59 p.m.) receive an entry to win your share of $30,000 in free slot play.
Two drawings take place on the night of the 31st, at 9 and 11 p.m. For full terms and conditions, visit the Players Club or cashier inside the casino.
Or perhaps the main casino floor is more your vibe
Several more Pennsylvania casinos have New Year’s promotions involving upwards of six-figure giveaways.
Hollywood Penn National starts NYE celebrations a day early
