Visitors to Atlantic City this month will soon be seeing a lot of green.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and citing public safety issues with large gatherings, for the second year in a row, the annual Atlantic City St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been canceled.
There still will be plenty to celebrate.
Resorts Casino Hotel will be offering a variety of food and drink specials valid Saturday, March 13, and Wednesday, March 17. Among the participating outlets are Breadsticks Café & Grill, Wet Willies, Cielo Wine Bar, DraftKings Sportsbook and Bar One.
In addition, the Shamrock Prize Patrol will be roaming the gaming floor from 2 to 10 p.m. March 13, and again from noon to 6 p.m. March 17. They’ll be handing out a variety of prizes, from green beads to gift cards. To enhance the experience, Kilted Rogues, a group of authentic bagpipers, will stroll through Resorts between 4 and 7 p.m. on March 13 and 17.
For players who earn two tier points, Resorts will hold a special St. Patrick’s Day mask giveaway at the Promotions Booth from Monday, March 8, through Wednesday, March 17 — one mask per guest while supplies last. Guests who earn one tier point can participate in a St. Patrick’s Day Slot Tournament from noon to 7 p.m. Grand prize is $1,000 in slot cash, second place is $500 slot cash, with five additional prizes of $300 slot cash each. Winners will have until 8 p.m. to claim their prizes. For registration and additional information, as well as free St. Patrick’s Day beads and leis, visit the Promotions Booth.
