Atlantic City's Ocean Casino Resort announced Monday it is giving back to its community, its workers and its customers throughout November and December with $2 million in gaming promotions and charitable donations. The property is also opening its holiday pop-up site Jingle Bell Bar with Duran Duran playing live on December 30.
Bill Callahan, General Manager for Ocean Casino Resort, said: “As we reflect and celebrate a successful 2022 summer season where Ocean introduced over $85 million in new property development, we are equally committed to investing back into the local community and our valued team members and customers who truly make this property what it is.”
“We are excited to be ending the year on a high note with entertainment at Ovation Hall along with the return of our wildly popular Jingle Bell Bar,” he added.
After an inaugural run last winter, Ocean’s Season of Giving returns to recognize and assist several non-profit businesses across the greater Atlantic City region. Ocean will provide more than $40,000 in gifts, assistance and donations impacting multiple causes of community concern - including food insecurity, homelessness, youth support, education, family services and health and wellness - until the end of the year. And same as last year, Ocean will also distribute holiday gift cards to all current team members.
As for its customers, Ocean has announced several promotions and offers for casino guests to enjoy, highlighted by a $1 million Sweepstakes beginning December 25 through January 1.
With over 1,400 winners over 8 days, “there’s no better way to cap off 2022 than winning your share of $1 million,” the company wrote. Additional promotions throughout November and December include a $100,000 Amazon Gift Card Sweepstakes, a $200,000 Sweepstakes over Thanksgiving weekend with a variety of free play and multiplier events.
The Jingle Bell Bar: A Holiday Pop-up Experience will also return this holiday season to bring "festive cocktails, nostalgic décor and themed entertainment." “Experience the magic with friends and family, creating new holiday memories as you snap selfies, sing out loud, and spread cheer for all to hear this year at Jingle Bell Bar,” the company said.
