Bally’s Atlantic City will host their Grand Re-Opening on Sunday, February 16, 2014 beginning with The “Grand Re-opening Sweepstakes.” The event is open to any Total Rewards member as well as the general public.
Total Rewards members will be invited to activate and print their entries at the designated Promotional kiosk from 1:00pm through 7:30pm. Guests attending the event will be awarded entries based on their tier.
Entries will be deposited into the drawing drum that will be located at the Sweepstakes Center. Every 30 minutes, five (5) winners will be drawn between 3:00pm through 7:30pm for $1,000 of free play. Free play winners will have 15 minutes to claim their prize. Any prizes not claimed within The 15 minute time frame will be forfeited and will be added to the final prize pool presented at the end of the evening.
Beginning at 8:00pm five (5) finalists will be announced. The finalists selected will be given 15 minutes to report to the Sweepstakes Center. Each finalist will receive $1,000 free play and a spin on the Bally’s Prize Wheel to win an additional prize. Also, each finalist will pick out a gold coin from a small drum in the order that they claimed their spot. Each coin will have a number reflecting the order to spin the wheel with just one coin that will have “Free Play Winner.” That guest will win the remaining unclaimed free play in addition to a spin on the prize wheel. To add to the suspense, the “Free Play Winner” will not be revealed until after each finalist has spun the wheel.
Adding to the enjoyment of the fun evening is host Todd Newton. Newton, an Emmy Award winning television host may be best known for his work on E! Entertainment Television. Todd's personable interviewing style and amiable personality connected viewers with Hollywood's elite and provided an All Access Pass to star-studded red carpet events.

In fact, Bally's Atlantic City which is located on the boardwalk is like my home away from home and they are like family to me,” quickly adding “I am really excited about this event.” Newton is savoring this opportunity, “Can you imagine being able to award a big prize every 15 minutes to 5 people, what could be more fun than that,” said Newton.
In addition to his “Presenter Host duties, Newton has been hosting The Price Is Right at Bally's for at least 5 years during the summer season. “That is a wonderful stint for me and for the visitors who come to Bally's Atlantic City.

Newton was friendly and warm and did not hesitate to talk about how much and how close he feels to Bally's Atlantic City.
“What a great event this will be, Bally's visitors will get the opportunity to see first hand the new renovations and at The same time win substantial sums of money. I love being able to present people with sums of money that could be life changing for them.”
Newton was referring to Bally's $5.6 million dollar renovation. Bally's undertook the project in October of 2013. The 4 month renovation transformed the look and feel of the casino floor at Bally’s, thereby enhancing the customers gaming experience.
