The $50,000 Free SlotPlay and Candy Giveaway will begin at 9AM on Sunday, February 10. Guests that belong to the Hollywood Casino’s Marquee Rewards Club will present their cards and receive a candy bar, with one in four randomly selected Marquee Rewards members winning a prize of up to $500 in Free SlotPlay.

The Mardi Gras Party on Tuesday, February 12, gets underway at 4PM in Hollywood on the Roof. Guests will be able to dine on $3 Po-Boy Sandwiches, $2 Cajun Gumbo and $2 Beignets, and $5 Hurricane Cocktails.

Then at 5PM the Bayou Bandits Zydeco Band takes the stage for a three-hour show. Zydeco is the music of Southwest Louisiana's Creoles and the bands generally include accordions, electric guitar, drums, fiddles, horns and washboards called a frottoir.
