Calder’s $12k could go to a nice trip; Or …

The “Trip of a Lifetime” promotion at Calder Casino wraps up this Saturday, with one winner going on their dream vacation.

Well, sort of.

Though the idea of a luxury cruise in the Mediterranean or a visit to the Great Wall of China is inciting, the “Trip of a Lifetime” is actually $12,000 cash.

“We want our guests to have the ability to pick their own trip of a lifetime,” said Calder’s Director of Marketing Matt Harper. “All of the packages we have promoted throughout the month could be purchased for $12,000 or less, so in the end, the winner can customize their own dream vacation.”

Six finalists have been selected through the weekly drawings so far; four more will be picked this Saturday at 9 p.m. for their shot at the grand prize. There will also be the regular weekly drawings from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. where 15 winners can win Free Play or the “$1,500 Weekend Getaway” top prize. Entries for the drawing are earned with every 10 points on slots.
