March Promotions at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Include Range Rover Giveaway, $10,000 Drawing

Rush Rewards Players Club members continue to earn multipliers, giveaways, and loyalty card upgrades

SCHENECTADY, NY — Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady will be kicking off the month of March by giving one Rush Rewards Players Club member $10,000 in cash!

The drawing, which will take place on March 1, is the culmination of the Rush to Rewards online scratch off promotion, which was the first of many Rush Rewards promotions and launched before Rivers’ opening. Everyone who played Rush to Rewards online instantly received instant free slot play or comp dollars, which were available upon the activation of the player’s Rush Rewards account.

The lucky winner of $10,000 does not need to be present for the drawing, and will be notified to pick up their prize at the casino.

“Providing a top quality guest experience is priority number one at Rivers, and our aggressive promotional offerings is part of fulfilling that goal,” said Rivers Casino and Resort General Manager Mary Cheeks. “We’ve seen a tremendous response to Rush Rewards, and we expect that to continue in the coming weeks and months as we continue to roll out exciting new giveaways, contests and comps.”

Cash won’t be the month’s only prize – Rivers will also be giving away a new Range Rover Evoque on March 25.

Starting March 11, Rush Rewards guests will receive one entry for every 10 tier points earned. On the day of the drawing, between noon and 6:45 p.m., guests must swipe their Rush Rewards card at a promotional kiosk to activate the entries.

Drawings will take place hourly from 1 to 6 p.m. on March 25, with four winners each hour. Winners will walk away with $200 in free slot play – and a $100 Sunoco gas card if they report to the Rush Rewards center within 5 minutes of their name being announced.

The drawing for the Range Rover Evoque will take place at 7 p.m., and one winner will be able to drive away in a brand new car, or $25,000 cash. The winner must be present to claim the car or cash prize.

That’s not the only action at Rivers Casino & Resort this coming month:

  • On Thursday, March 16, Rivers will be giving away his or hers TFX by Bulova Watches to guests who earn at least 400 tier points between the hours of noon and 7:00 p.m.
  • March Madness arrives at Rivers in the Dukes Hoops social contest. Facebook fans can vote for the team they think will win the 2017 NCAA National Basketball Championship for a chance to win a dinner for two at Dukes Chophouse.
  • On Thursday, March 30, guests will be eligible to receive a $20 Sunoco gas gift card or $20 in free slot play. Rush Rewards guests who earn at least 400 tier points between the hours of noon and 7:00 p.m. will receive a gift card.
  • Guests will continue to receive a 2X points multiplier every Tuesday in March. Additionally, guests who present a valid and active mid to high level loyalty card from a regional casino will receive an automatic upgrade to the corresponding Rush Rewards tier. This promotion will run until the end of March.


There is no cost to join Rush Rewards, and members earn points for their slot play and table game play by inserting their card into the slot machine or presenting it to table games dealers before starting the game. The more points earned, the more reward benefits members will receive. These include free play, food offers, entries into promotional drawings, discounted room rates, valet parking, personalized casino host services and much more.
