Great news, folks!
Assiniboia Downs is taking the fun and profit of wagering to a new level! It has unveiled a bonus betting program that will inject cash into your account weekly during October depending on your level of wagering. You could get a cash injection up to five per cent of your wagers. Example: Wager a total of $5,000 from next Thursday, Oct. 1, to Wednesday, Oct. 7, and $250 will be deposited into your account two days later–on Friday.
What is essential, of course, is having a Player Rewards card. It’s free and easy to get: Just see the mutuel supervisor in the Clubhouse or go to the VLT cage or call the mutuel desk (204-885-3330 ext. 225) or see the ticket seller at any of the off-track locations.
Here are the levels:
“We wanted to find another way to reward our loyal customers,” said CEO Darren Dunn, in announcing the October betting bonus cash program. “Our goal is to always find ways to return support to those who support us.”
“In the end it is really a partnership with our customers,” he said. “Whether it is a cash-back wagering opportunity, our extensive rewards program for food and beverage, racing forms and programs or even offering free admission and free parking which is not available at most tracks. We continue to try and find ways to give back for the better of all involved in this industry. This will always be at the forefront of our decision-making and our #1 goal.”
Fans will note that the bonus program even includes the Breeders’ Cup races on Friday, Oct. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 31 which are much more costly for tracks to broadcast.
WHAT WILL YOUR WAGERING STRATEGY BE?
Of course, the bonus applies to all wagers including show (as long as the payoff is at least $2.20). So it will be interesting to see whether there’s renewed interest in making large show wagers to get the weekly bonus up to the five per cent level.
