Doin' It Again: $10,000 A Day Giveaway
Every Day in July At Gold Strike Casino

TUNICA, MS - Gold Strike Casino Resort presents Doin' It Again: $10,000 A Day Giveaway in July. Each day during the month of July, 24K Player's Club Members have six chances to win their share of cash. Drawings will be held daily (each hour) starting at 5:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M.

The winner's cash prize amount will be determined by a special random drawing moments before the actual cash drawing by picking one of six envelopes; the envelopes consist of five $500 prizes and one $10,000! Guests do not have to be present to win; however, if the guest is present and wins one of the five $500 prizes, it will double to $1,000 ($10,000 cash prize will be given away at face value only). Everyday is a new drawing. That means that you have a new chance to win the $10,000 grand prize or one of the additional cash prizes each and every day during the entire month of July.

Every day that you visit Gold Strike Casino Resort during July, you can get five free entries into the drawing. Additional slot and video poker play with your 24K Player's Club Card earns you even more additional entries for that day. Every winner has 72 hours from the night his/her name is called to claim his/her prize, in-person, at the Main Casino Cage. All winners' 24 Karat Player card numbers will be posted near the Doin' It Again: $10,000 A Day Giveaway Kiosk -- near the 24 Karat Booth. Unclaimed cash prizes will not roll over to the next day's drawing during this promotion.

For more information on how to enter the Doin' It Again: $10,000 A Day Giveaway, call 1-888-24K-PLAY.
