Whether you kiss your necklace or cross your fingers before pulling the lever on the slot machine, many of us have our superstitions when it comes to luck… though I have to admit, today was the first time I have ever heard of anyone rubbing their husband’s belly for good luck (more on this later).
As our friends over at Saratoga Casino and Raceway are launching a new series of commercials that feature stories direct from real guests, they’re also holding a contest for others to enter their stories online. Those who submit their stories have a chance at winning $500 and being featured in the next series of commercials for Saratoga Casino and Raceway, to run this summer.
As I alluded to earlier, the commercials set to air now include a few bizarre stories (real stories) from actual guests of Saratoga Casino and Raceway. One of these guests is a woman who believes that rubbing her husband’s big belly is a good luck charm! For some reason, my childhood treasure trolls are coming to mind…
Another story in this commercial series features a man who wears an incredibly dated shirt every time he plays. He claims that it has brought him good fortune throughout his life, from girlfriends to getting out of speeding tickets. And hey, according to the commercial, he won over $61,000 dollars, so I guess if the shirt fits… or used to fit… wear it. See the video clip below.
Future commercials will include a man who has an odd lucky pet and a couple who met in Vapor, fell in love and later got married.
If you have a “good luck” story or just an entertaining story about your escapades at the Saratoga Casino and Raceway venue, you could have $500 waiting with your name on it, along with a chance at being featured in a future Racino commercial.
The contest launches Thursday, March 22, and you can submit your story online. A press release from Saratoga Casino and Raceway tells us more:
“A contest launches tomorrow encouraging the public to submit their own “winning” strategies and experiences to the casino for a chance at $500 and to see the story unfold in future commercials. Four other prizes of $100 each will be awarded to the top entries, as well. Stories do not have to be about a specific win at Saratoga Casino and Raceway, but can be about having a good time on the property or just a story of luck in general. Further details about the contest, including an entry form, are available at saratogacasino.com.”
So whether you always carry your lucky penny (or treasure troll) in your pocket, it’s time to tell the world your big secret! Maybe you’re even luckier than you know….
