Why We’re Going Ahead with our Caesars Second Chance Promotion

Ok, so hey, we know this is a weird time to be thinking about a trip to Las Vegas. The Coronavirus pandemic has kind of put everything on the backburner. Casinos have been closed for months, the restaurants on the Strip won’t be opening in the near future and we still have to wear masks when we go into public.

Like every winner who comes in, we offered Jimmy Brezina a free t-shirt. Unlike every winner who comes in, Jimmy told us a Nebraska Lottery t-shirt saved his life once.
