NASCAR Virtual Racing Driver Martin Truex Jr. Hits for $8,725

RENO, Nev. (July 10, 2014) – Last year, the Eldorado Resort Casino upgraded to the new and improved Power Pennies Plus with added features and the all new NASCAR Virtual Racing, exclusive to the Eldorado. The NASCAR-themed virtual car race application odds are progressive and awards are issued to winning players immediately in FreePlay downloaded to their account.

Players typically choose their favorite driver and cheer him across the finish line, but on July 7, Lawrence R. of Lake Charles, La., said he was trying to pick another driver but the race was getting ready to start and the computer pick the driver for him.

He was elated that not only did the computer choose the winning driver, but that he was the only one that won. He could not believe it when he saw how much he won - $8,725 in FreePlay. “I figure I’ll play some more penny machines and then move up to the $10 and $25 dollar games,” Lawrence said. “Why not!” NASCAR Virtual Racing adds excitement to the casino floor every day at 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 p.m. Qualified players will select their favorite NASCAR driver and with a roar of the engines and a little luck, they can take the checkered flag and win.

Club Eldorado Membership is free and easy to join. Details are available at the Promotion Center on the casino floor or online at You can also call 800-879-8879 or 775-786-5700 for more details or visit our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and iPhone and Android Apps for the latest news and specials.
