Four Mercedes given away at Hollywood Casino

18 April 2008

BAY ST. LOUIS, Mississippi -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– It was a wild and fun-filled weekend at Hollywood Casino Bay St. Louis as four lucky players won brand new 2008 Mercedes-Benz sedans given away over three days. Another 20 lucky players won $500 in Star Play consolation prizes.

The Mercedes luxury cars and Star Play were awarded to six players in four separate shows. "This place was lit up with excitement all weekend long as we gave the fourth car away yesterday," said Senior Director of Marketing Jeffrey Sabree. "The excitement hasn't stopped either because now we have our $100,000 Hollywood Superstars Slot Tournament," said Sabree.

Phyllis Vutera, of Hammond, LA, was the first Mercedes winner Friday night and got to choose between four C300 luxury sedans with each car sporting a different color. She picked the white model. "I had a feeling I was going to win tonight. I told my husband that I was going to win," said Vutera.

Two more Mercedes-Benzes were given away in separate drawings on Saturday. Rita Rabalais of Carriere, MS, won a silver Mercedes during the day and Lauretha Garrett of Abita Springs, LA, won a beautiful black Mercedes Saturday evening.

Tamara Reed of Baton Rouge, LA, won the fourth, charcoal grey, Mercedes-Benz given away in Sunday's drawing. "I told my friends and family when we got up this morning that today was going to be a good day. I was quite sure what it was, but it turned out to be a great day," said Reed.
