The Eldorado Moves to Power Pennies Plus

New NASCAR Power Racing, Bonus Games and Tournaments Added

One year after field testing the Bally Elite Bonusing Suite and launching Power Pennies, the Eldorado Hotel Casino is upgrading to the new and improved Power Pennies Plus with added features and the all new NASCAR Virtual Racing, exclusive to the Eldorado.

“Our guests have really responded to the Power Pennies promotion,” said Rob Mouchou, vice president of operations for the Eldorado Hotel Casino. “We wanted to offer them some new features to enhance their experience and build on that excitement. Power Pennies Plus does just that.”

U-Spin Bonusing, which allows the player to touch the game screen and physically spin the bonus wheel making for an interactive bonus game experience, has been enhanced to feature three different bonus games. Players are still able to take their bonuses with them as they play other Power Pennies machines, but now they'll be able to win FreePlay by playing the U-Spin Wheel, Cash Spin and Skeeball.

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. Awards are issued to winning players immediately in FreePlay downloaded to their account. Plus, the odds are now progressive so a car could get up to $50,000.

Also newly added is the Power Pennies Prospector Plunge Slot Tournament. Players earn entries to the weekly tournaments as they play and once they qualify, a display will appear on the screen. After 10 spins, the score is automatically entered into contention for the weekly $1,000 prize fund awarded each Saturday. The highest unique scores are posted on the leader board and guests can continue to play each week to earn more chances to win.

Popular promotions that remain include the Power Pennies Birthday Bonus awarded daily at 5:30 p.m. and the Power Pennies Fabulous Friday $1,000 slot tournament held each Friday from 7 to 11 p.m.

The Power Ponies virtual horse racing will be designated to special event days like the Eldorado's 40th Birthday $40,000 “Day at the Races” Friday, May 31 through Sunday June 2 when guests can bet on the winning pony and win anywhere from $500 to $10,000 each hour on the hour from noon until 9 p.m.
