Caesars casinos have begun a promotion that awards US$20 to customers who wear a face mask inside the venue.
US.- Caesars Entertainment in Las Vegas has launched a promotion paying guests who wear face masks US$ 20 to encourage them to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The operator recently reopened its five hotel-casinos on The Strip after almost three months of shutdown.
The promotion began at the weekend, when a team walked through Caesars Palace, Paris, Flamingo, The Linq and Harrah’s to offer rewards to customers who were wearing masks while gambling or walking on the casino floor. They awarded a total of US$7,500 to 375 guests.
According to the Reno Gazette Journal, the promotion applies only to Caesars Rewards members wearing masks, but anyone can sign up for a chance to get free money.
Caesars Entertainment public relations specialist Gia Silvaggio said the promotion would end if wearing masks became mandatory.
Las Vegas is tightening Covid-19 measures due to an increase in the number of cases in Nevada. On Monday, the state reported 330 new infections.
In order to contain the spread of the virus, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has updated its health and safety policy for casinos, and gamblers in Nevada are now required to wear face at gaming tables that have no barriers.
