And They're Off... Popular Virtual Horse Racing Returns to Barona Resort & Casino August 29

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - Barona Resort & Casino is raising the stakes for winning big during its upcoming 'Off to the Races' promotion on Monday, August 29, 2011. Club Barona members can vie to win part of $70,000 in prizes through the casino's virtual horse races that take place on the casino's myVIEW screens.

"Our 'Off to the Races' events are always highly anticipated by our players," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. "Players have multiple opportunities to win big and enjoy the thrill of rooting for their favorite animated fillies."

The excitement begins the moment Barona players walk through the doors with greeters dressed in race attire and a professional race caller on hand to announce the virtual races live on the casino floor. Races are scheduled every two hours from noon to 10 p.m. Players can begin earning Club Barona points at 10 a.m. on race day.

Guests who earn 100 Club Barona myPOINTS in the two hour priors to each race will have the opportunity to bet on their favorite horses during virtual races unfolding on the myVIEW screens on Barona's slot and video poker games. If their horse wins, they win $100 in "myFREEPLAY." Adding to the excitement, Club Barona staff will be giving out other small prizes on the casino floor throughout the day.

For those who enjoy live horse racing action year round, Barona also offers Off-Track Betting in a 136-seat venue which has 32 televisions, including five big screens.
