Earning Great Gift Wrap Up Gift Points just became easier
From July 1 through the end of 2020 Diamond Elite and Seven Stars cardholders now can earn Great Gift Wrap Up Gift Points for play at all Caesars Rewards casinos throughout the United States and Canada. Previously, any level cardholder was able to earn points, but only at participating properties in Nevada, Arizona and California. Cardholders who reach Diamond Elite or Seven Stars status after July 1 are eligible to begin earning points at all Caesars Rewards casinos once their status is upgraded. No points will be earned or awarded retroactively. (8/6)

There's a difference between a gift card and a gift. In other words, somebody just got caught "copying and pasting".

Harrah's gets crafty in Southern California
Every month, more than a dozen people gather at Harrah’s Resort Southern California to make keepsake items and home decor trinkets at its Get Crafty series. Since 2016, for $35, guests get an instructor and all the supplies they need to craft an item that’s usually themed after a timely holiday. On Aug. 15, for example, guests crafted a cactus made from wood, nails and string in Corked, Harrah’s wine and craft beer bar, Anita Warren, Harrah’s fun supervisor, says the events were geared toward people who came in with a spouse who was big gamer, but perhaps wasn’t as into gaming and wanted to enjoy the resort elements of the property. Lately, however, Warren has seen the event’s audience evolve – now attracting couples, bachelorette parties and birthday parties. Typically the events draw between 15 and 20 people, she says. The crafting sessions are just one of several events that Warren oversees. She said that Harrah’s also does trivia nights on Wednesdays and movie nights in Harrah’s courtyards through October. (8/6)

Caesars Windsor not in line to reopen yet
The Ontario government has announced Windsor-Essex will remain in Stage 2 of reopening. In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the local medical officer of health, other health experts, and local authorities, Windsor-Essex County Health Unit will remain in Stage 2 as the province continues to monitor local transmission of COVID-19 and support efforts to contain its spread. "We are working hard with our federal and local partners to provide the communities in Windsor-Essex with the support they need during their reopening," said Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Christine Elliott. "With the health and safety of the people of Ontario our absolute top priority, Windsor-Essex will remain in Stage 2 until the data indicates they can safely move to Stage 3." (8/4)

It's Seven Stars, folks, with an "s".

William Hill US to operate sportsbook at Grand Victoria
Sportsbook operator William Hill US opened its first location in Illinois this month at the Grand Victoria Casino Elgin riverboat, marking the company’s 10th state and an extension of its agreement with Caesars Entertainment Inc. The location is the first since Eldorado Resorts Inc. acquired Caesars Entertainment Corp. The former Eldorado has a partnership agreement with the American subsidiary of the UK-based sports betting giant William Hill. In 2019, Eldorado gained a 20 percent ownership stake in the business in exchange for a 25-year deal to operate sports betting in the company’s casinos where the activity is legal. The new sportsbook at Grand Victoria will have three full-service ticket windows and is located on the riverboat’s main casino floor near the bar area, featuring several high-top tables and seating areas for sports viewing. The company said the new sportsbook marks the beginning of William Hill’s expansion into the Illinois sports betting market. Pending regulatory approval, William Hill will soon offer mobile sports betting across the state. Last month, William Hill US CEO Joe Asher said the company will assume operations of 11 Nevada sportsbooks operated by Caesars, including Caesars Palace and Harrah’s Las Vegas. The company will assume the operations for seven of Caesars sportsbooks in other states. William Hill currently operates 113 race and sportsbooks in Nevada through both retail locations and wagering kiosk, and mobile sports wagering app. The company also operates retail sportsbooks in New Jersey, Indiana, West Virginia, and Iowa, and online in Iowa. William Hill is a licensed sports betting provider in numerous casinos in Mississippi and New Mexico and serves as the exclusive risk manager for the Delaware and Rhode Island sports lotteries.
