    PRESS RELEASES

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    On Thursday March 29, 2018, Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa hosted our annual Vietnam Veteran’s Day Flag Raising Ceremony. It was rather cold and windy; however, there was an attendance of about 150 guests. The Joseph J. White Legion Post presented the ceremony with guest speaker Fred Camacho. The Little Thunder Drum Group also participated in the ceremony and sang a total of six songs including; the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Crops songs. After the ceremony a drawing was held and three winners took home gift certificates to Whitetail Crossing and Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa. All Warrior Card holders received $25 Rewards Play and a $5 food voucher towards the Vietnam Veteran’s Day buffet. Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa would like to thank all Veterans for their service!

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    This June, we held a summer food drive, where all proceeds benefited the South Wood Emerging Pantry Shelf in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. We had an incredible response to this event, with a total of 581 participants donating food and household items that weighted in at 6,002 pounds, a value of over $8,000! SWEPS Operations manager, Dale Davis, was ecstatic when we notified him of our summer food drive efforts. He stated “This is just wonderful news! We don’t receive a large number of donations in the summer and this will help many local families put food on their tables!” We will be holding another food drive in November and we hope to exceed our previous donation. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this food drive, it would not have been a success without you!

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    Summer 2017 at Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa was lively with two outdoor charity concerts. On Saturday July 29, 2017 the American Hitmen had a lively rock’n’roll show with a fun crowd that were able to enjoy an extra set. The Pittsville Police Department received a portion of the ticket sales for a grand total donation of $2,500, which will be used towards the purchase of new radios. The local Rapid Search and Rescue team was also on site that night grilling up a storm to raise funds as well. With our donation of $1,000 and the funds they raised, they now have $1,568.33 towards the purchase of their new mobile response unit.
    On Saturday August 19, 2017 the American English Beatles tribute band came to entertain our guests, and that they did. Not only did they have a great show, we also had 7 winners compete in our costume contest between sets; everyone looked great. The American Red Cross was the charity associated with this concert and received $2,205 from a portion of the ticket sales towards the local chapter to help our surrounding communities. We look forward to more charity concerts next summer!

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa is excited to introduce a new game, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, to our Table Games department on October 27, 2017. We believe this addition will offer our current players a new and exciting option while enticing new players to visit our casino.
    The Pai Gow Poker game offers two bonus features: the Fortune Bonus and the Envy bonus using a standard 52-card deck with one Joker. The object of the game is to make two hands based on Poker rankings. Each player is dealt seven cards that are split into two hands; a high hand, consisting of five cards - and a low hand, consisting of two cards. The Fortune Bonus feature allows players to win on an additional wager if their seven card hand contains a five card straight or better. The Envy Bonus feature allows players to win if any other player has a qualifying Fortune Bonus hand.
    “This game will be a great addition to our Table Games department and I know many people will enjoy this new opportunity,” Adam Estes, Table Games Operation Manager at Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa, said of the new Pai Gow Poker game.
    Come see us soon at Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa and try our thrilling new Table Game, Fortune Pai Gow Poker!

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa hosted a Co-Ed Cornhole tournament in our banquet center on January 27, 2018. The event had an excellent turnout with 22 teams registering for the event. The day was filled with fun and excitement! Food and drinks were available as teams eagerly waited for their turn at the boards or a chance to spin the jumbo wheel. In the end there were three teams who defeated the rest. Congratulations to our winning teams! Michaela from Colby, WI and David from Oakfield, WI took third place with a payday of $220. While second place went to Jason and Jenna from Aurora, South Dakota who bagged $330.

Thank you to all who participated, we look forward to hosting another Cornhole tournament in the near future!

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa wanted to start 2018 by giving back to our local community. We did this by hosting a food drive in January. We had a wonderful response to this event with 723 participants. Over $9,000 worth of food products were donated to the local food party, South Wood Emerging Pantry Shelf in Wisconsin Rapids. Operations Manager, Dale Davis, stated “This food drive occurred at the perfect time. A lot of people donate before the holidays, however, very few donations are received after the holidays when we need it the most. Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa’s food drive assisted us in keeping our shelves stocked after a busy holiday season. We appreciate everything Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa does to help the pantry and look forward to continuing our partnership.” Thank you to all who participated in the food drive, without your help this would not have been possible.

    Melanie McDonald, Sr. Manager of Public Relations

    Ho-Chunk Gaming Nekoosa and Ho-Chunk Gaming Black River Falls partnered to be the Co-Presenting sponsor for the 10th annual Rich Seubert Celebrity Trap Shoot on April 14th. This was the third year the casinos sponsored, with the second year as Co-Presenting sponsor. The event is hosted by the Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation. Rich Seubert, a retired New York Giants football player, started this event 11 years ago because he wanted to give back to the clinic after his grandmother received a heart transplant at Marshfield Clinic. Despite the ongoing blizzard, a fun-filled day was had at the Eau Claire Rod & Gun Club. A lovely dinner and reception invitation to the Lismore Hotel for the 200 shooters who participated followed the trap shoot. Over $150,000 was raised between the trap shoot, silent and live auction and the multiple drawings. The funds raised from this event will be split between the Angel Fund, which helps families in financial hardship related to serious medical issues, and improvements to the pediatric departments to create child-friendly spaces in the Marshfield Clinic hospitals.

    RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING

    KEEPING IT FUN

    Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin advocates the American Gaming Association's message to "Keep it Fun" while visiting any of our gaming establishments.

    Whether you play slots, craps, blackjack, roulette or any other game in a casino, it is important to remember that games of chance are based on random outcomes and always favor the casino. These games of chance are a form or entertainment, at a price to you, the player. Casino gaming should not be considered a way to make money.

    Gambling has become an accepted part of America's mainstream culture, comparable to leisure activities such as attending movies, athletic events and the theater. A large majority of Americans who gamble do so recreationally without adverse consequences. However, for some, gambling is no longer entertainment, becoming something they need to do rather than something they want to do.
