$250,000 Winner in 4th Annual Holiday Cash Giveaway

December 27, 2010

Kinder, LA—Brian Hunt from Pearland, Texas, was the grand prize winner of Coushatta Casino Resort’s 4th Annual Holiday Giveaway on December 18. Brian won $250,000, one of the largest single casino cash giveaways in the country. A total of $50,000 was shared by 20 preliminary winners before Brian’s name was selected at midnight. Casino guests earned entries into the big giveaway by playing any slot machine or table game with their Advantage Club card.

After claiming his prize Brian was asked what he would do with the money. He replied by asking if he could wager it all on one hand of Blackjack. Of course he was kidding, although the large crowd in the casino was not sure for a moment.

Casino Marketing Director Phil Ziegler pointed out that even with the big crowd it was an exciting opportunity for all in attendance. “We had about 7,000 people eligible to win $250,000. Those are pretty good odds! Plus we had another 20 chances to win $2,500.”

The annual drawing takes place on the Saturday prior to Christmas. The 5th Annual Holiday giveaway is scheduled for December 17, 2011,
