New Hampshire's The Brook awards over $50,000

10 January 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- It was a prosperous start to the New Year for Tom Abate of Methuen, Massachusetts after he won the grand prize drawing of The Big Ride Giveaway at The Brook on New Year’s Day.

Abate, a Gold Club member at The Brook, America’s largest charity casino, will use the $50,000 check toward any vehicle at Volvo Cars of Exeter. An additional $17,500 in cash prizes was also handed out to 99 other lucky winners who participated in The Big Ride by playing historical horse racing machines and electronic table games using their Gold Club card over the last two months.

The Gold Club is The Brook's customer loyalty program that allows players to earn points that can be redeemed property wide for free play, merchandise, dining and entertainment tickets. It is free to join and open to anyone 18 years of age or older.

The Grand Prize Drawing capped off a momentous weekend at The Brook after it hosted a sold-out show by Aerosmith tribute band, Draw The Line, in its new Seasons Showroom on New Year’s Eve.

The Brook is a 90,000 square-foot Las Vegas-style casino that has undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation since Nevada-based Eureka Casino Resort acquired the former Seabrook Park property in 2019. It recently increased the number of gaming machines on its expansive casino floor to over 500, including popular titles from Aristocrat Gaming and Konami Gaming such as Buffalo Gold, Buffalo Chief, Mighty Cash Double Up Lucky Tiger and China Shores.

In addition to simulcast racing seven days a week, The Brook, which donated more than $4 million to local charity organizations in 2022, features a range of casino table games, including blackjack, roulette, craps, Stadium Gaming, a live poker room as well as a DraftKings Sportsbook that is the largest of its kind in New England.
