(SAN DIEGO) Aug. 3, 2011 – The odds are better than ever at Barona Resort & Casino’s ‘Off to the Races’ promotion, which runs every Sunday night in August.
Club Barona members can choose their favorite horse from the virtual lineup and cheer them on right from their seats. Players can win $100 myFREEPLAY in each of five races for choosing the winning horse. Race times are scheduled for 8 p.m., 9 p.m., 10 p.m., 11 p.m. and midnight.
“Our ‘Off to the Races’ promotions are some of the most anticipated events at Barona,” said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “Players get excited about having multiple chances to win big at the races right from the casino floor.”
While the animated horses race on the myVIEW screens on Barona’s slot and video poker games, a live, professional race caller will be on the casino floor announcing the virtual races.
Guests can start earning Club Barona myPoints at noon the day of each race. Players who earn 500 myPOINTS between noon and the hour before any of the five races start will be able to place their bets for the winning pony.
