Speedway Motorsports and Foxwoods Resort Casino Launch Racing Themed Social Casino
Speedway Motorsports (SMI) and Foxwoods Resort Casino are launching a new racing themed social gaming platform, Pit Stop Casino™. The new online gaming product gives fans the chance to win racing themed rewards from a free-to-play application.
Pit Stop Casino is part of Foxwoods Resort Casino's successful social gaming platform FoxwoodsONLINE, but with a new racing themed graphic appeal and presentation. Fans can play free slots and select table games online with the opportunity to earn credits toward racing themed prizes, Foxwoods hotel stays, show tickets and more. Based on the rewards earned, fans can qualify for tiered discounts on race tickets at any of the eight SMI subsidiary owned facilities from coast-to-coast beginning in July. Pit Stop Casino is available to play for free online at www.pitstopcasino.com.
"When I first visited Foxwoods Resort Casino, I immediately saw a company and a place that's truly dedicated to providing the very best experience in entertainment for their customers. They call it 'The Wonder Of It All,' and like Speedway Motorsports, there's a constant commitment to create something special every day," said Speedway Motorsports President and CEO Marcus Smith.
"Aligning with a sports entertainment company like Speedway Motorsports has opened so many doors for us," said Foxwoods Resort Casino interim CEO Rodney Butler. "SMI's speedways have such a loyal following of fans, and we've found that many of them are also fans of ours. This project is over a year in the making, and we know fans will love playing the new Pit Stop Casino.'
This endeavor is an extension of a successful relationship between the two companies that began in 2017 with a New Hampshire Motor Speedway ticket incentive program. The following year, Foxwoods Resort Casino and New Hampshire Motor Speedway announced a multi-year entitlement partnership naming the July Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race the "Foxwoods Resort Casino 301."
