Seventy-Five and Older Slot Tournament Spins with Excitement at Coushatta Casino Resort

May 21, 2009

Kinder, LA— A slot tournament for ages seventy-five years and above attracted over 300 players and a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000 at Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana.

“This tournament was themed ‘Remembering the 1940’s’ and was held only for our Coushatta Advantage Club members who were seventy-five years and above. This was a free tournament for them and we had such an overwhelming response. We’ve never had a tournament like this one, nor have I ever heard of one, and it was fun to watch all the participants having such a great time,” stated Phil Zeigler, Director of Marketing.

Cheers rang through the crowded casino on May 20 as each participant pushed their slot buttons to accumulate points high enough to claim a spot in the tournament finals. The guest with the highest points during the finals would take home the top prize.

The top winner of the slot tournament was Mrs. Patsy Gauthier of Lake Arthur, Louisiana, who won the grand prize of $5,000 in cash and stated, “I was only hoping to win one hundred and fifty dollars in this tournament but to win five thousand dollars is a big surprise.” Second through tenth places were also awarded cash prizes.

Coushatta Casino Resort is located in Kinder, Louisiana on US Highway 165 (I-10 exit 44) and features over 2,000 slots and more than 65 table games including live poker, plus live bingo and off-track betting. Phone 800-584-7263 for more information or visit the website at
