Mashantucket Tribe paid out $6M during gaming promotion event
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
A promotion by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut resulted in a $6 million payout to frequent customers, The Boston Herald reported.
The Foxwoods Resort Casino allowed holders of the "Dream Card" to redeem one dollar for one point, up to a total of $1,000. Normally, each point is worth only 50 cents, the paper said.
The promotion resulted in long lines, parking problems and other hassles at the casino. So the tribe has postponed six future trade-in dates and will lower the redeemable amount 50 cents.
“The good news is we gave away millions to happy Dream Card holders,” spokesperson Lori Potter told the Herald. “The bad news is that we had customer service issues like really long lines, capacity limits in some areas of the casino and parking problems.”
