Memorial Day Weekend has become summer’s official kickoff party, and Atlantic City’s Boardwalk casinos are preparing to throw a big one.

Things get started Friday at Caesars Entertainment’s Boardwalk properties with the organization’s Memorial Day Weekend Car Giveaway.

In fact, all Total Rewards loyalty club card holders are eligible and get one free entry into the drawing for a 2017 Ford Mustang. Plus, they can gain one additional entry for every 25 Tier Credits earned at Caesars Atlantic City casinos. Of course, this includes Bally’s and Caesars on The Boardwalk.

Players can earn entries Friday through Sunday. Plus, they can activate those entries by swiping their Total Rewards card at promotional kiosks at each property.

Two Mustangs on the block

Two drawings will be held: one at Bally’s at 6 p.m. local time and the other at Caesars at 8. Five winners will be drawn at each location, and they must be present to claim a prize. Four winners will walk away with $500 in free casino play. The grand prize winner at both Bally’s and Caesars can have either a 2017 Ford Mustang convertible or a $45,000 cash option.
