President and General Manager of Tioga Downs Casino Resort, Charles Otto, said a few words on the joyous occasion. He stated that is always exciting when one of the casino’s guests wins big. And in this case, the prize was in the amount of more than US$300,000 with a bet of US$5. That is why he believes that anyone can be next and win some life-changing money.

Local Contributions

Back in April 2021, the Nichols gaming establishment along with Vernon Downs Casino Hotel both hosted charitable events. This was in order to provide meals to local residents with the help of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and the Food Bank of Central New York. Tioga Downs Casino Resort has provided plenty of meals to the people for the Easter holidays as it donated over 5,000 dinners to local households.

However, that is not all as the casino resort has also made a US$100,000 donation to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. It also provided meals to 62 more organizations. The charitable event was a nice gesture, and it was organized as a way of supporting both the local population and the New York economy which was heavily hurt by the unprecedented situation of 2020.

Besides immaculate gambling amenities and social responsibility, Tioga Downs Casino Resort is also famous for its exceptional live harness racing facilities. The track named Tioga Downs Racetrack was fully renovated back in 2006, and it has been the home of many prestigious horse races through the years of seasonal operations.

This racing season the track also promises plenty of entertainment as it is set to host the finals for the New York Sire Stakes Series. The stakes already started on May 16, 2022, at Yonkers Raceway with a riveting 12-race card for 3-year-old trotting fillies. The finals for the series are scheduled to take place on September 10, 2022, at the Nichols racetrack.
