Casino guests can get in on giveaways and prize contents throughout the month.

Saratoga Casino Hotel will launch several giveaways and promos this month in commemoration of its 20-year anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, the casino hotel has unveiled a special-edition logo.

Saratoga guests can enter to win prizes, along with $200 Free Play prizes every 20 minutes on Fridays. Ten winners will walk away with a share of a $200,000 prize.

The venue will also offer patrons food and drink specials during the month.

Saratoga Casino Hotel welcomed its first guests on January 28, 2004. During the time of its opening, the casino featured 1,300 slots, a food court and trackside restaurant. The destination was the first New York State video gaming facility to open as well.

During the past two decades, Saratoga has undergone several updates and has expanded its gaming offerings to include electronic table games.

Casino hotel COO Alex Tucker offered a few remarks on the destination’s history and said that providing quality service to guests has been a key component of its success during the last 20 years.

He commented, “We have been committed to providing exceptional entertainment experiences for our guests since we opened. As we reflect on the past 20 years, I believe it’s this core mission that has made us successful.

“We are grateful to our guests, and we are proud to be one of many factors that make Saratoga Springs such a prosperous and thriving community.”

Longtime guest Patricia Colucci took a moment to reminisce on her time spent at Saratoga.

She said, “My husband and I were delighted 20 years ago when we heard a casino would be opening in Saratoga, and 20 years later we still find ourselves coming back.

“Through all the changes over the years, what remains the same is the friendly staff and cleanliness of the property. Plus, we just always know we’re going to have a good time.”
