Generous grandfather wins convertible

18 July 2008

AY ST. LOUIS, Missouri -- (PRESS RELEASE) –- Owen Gray of Kenner, LA, won a new gray convertible Ford Mustang at Hollywood Casino Bay St. Louis earlier this month. Gray and his sister visit family in the area once a week and regularly visit Hollywood Casino for entertainment and dinner, but July 1st turned out to be very special. Gray had been playing on the 'Ticket to Drive' nickel machines for a while spending his allotted $40 when his sister suggested that he spend another $20. "I put a extra $20 in the machine and decided to max bet with about $15.00 left on the machine and I won," said Gray.

Gray gave the new car to his daughter and grandson who live with him. "She had just put $1,400 into her old car, so I knew they could use a new car," said Gray. "They've been driving it for about a week now and they absolutely love it."

The cash value of the fully loaded convertible sports car exceeds $30,000. Hollywood already has a new 2008 Mustang on the floor ready to be won by the next lucky player.

Next month Hollywood Casino Bay St. Louis will give away two of four Corvettes to be given away this summer, including a smashing classic 1961 red and white convertible Corvette. "The opportunity to win lots of cash and cars here at Hollywood Casino never end," said Senior Director of Marketing Jeffrey Sabree. "The question is who and when is someone going to win next, you just never know. It's fun and exciting for everyone," said Sabree.

Hollywood Casino Bay St. Louis and Hollywood Hotel offers 291 guest rooms, nearly 1,200 new slot machines, 21 unique table games, a 6-table poker room, and a 14-station video poker bar.
