According to the latest United States gambling news, a casino in Bangor, Maine will be honoring the Special Olympics by offering table games at the Hollywood Casino, Hotel and Raceway, twenty four hours early.
This special event from the organizers of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, is offering customers a pristine opportunity to preview the table games from 5pm to 9pm on Thursday the 15th of March. Recent online gambling news in United States reports that the event is open to the first one hundred and fifty people who sign up, and costs $75 per person, or $130 per couple. All the proceeds are rumored to go to the Maine Special Olympics, in the form of a donation.
Seven hundred law enforcement officers are believed to run roughly nine hundred miles carrying the Special Olympics Flame of Hope in the annual event, prior to the Special Olympics Summer Games.
The grand event is allegedly offering hors d’oeuvres, as well as a cash bar also donating to the Maine Special Olympics, and entry to their Steak and Crab Epic Buffet. The real treat for punters though, is the opportunity to be the first ones on the table games, before they open to the general public, twenty four hours later.
As Maine, like most states, currently finds itself grappling with a change in the American gambling laws, the event is considered by many to be a very special occasion in the gambling world. There are rumors that a blackjack tournament will be held alongside plenty of other table games.
Though there will be no winnings offered at either blackjack, or in the poker rooms, with the games being strictly for entertainment and preview purposes, it is believed that the slot machines in the casino will be operational as normal.
Chief of Police in Bangor, and director of Maine Law Enforcement Torch Run, Ron Gastia thanked Hollywood Casino personally when he commented that: “I commend Hollywood Casino for recognizing the need and for their willingness to help law enforcement efforts with this worthy cause.”
The Chief went on to say that the event offered an opportunity to recognize the cause and help fund the personal growth, physical fitness and self-confidence of athletes with disabilities.
