Rochester woman wins new Cadillac at casino Saturday

By Billie Owens

UPDATE: The woman's last name has now been provided.

This is a news release from Batavia Downs Casino.

Marilyn Brightman from Rochester doesn’t drive -- but she may learn now that she’s the owner of a 2011 Cadillac CTS.

She and her husband were among the thousands of Player’s Club members who crowded into Batavia Downs Casino Saturday night for the chance to win the shiny new Caddy or $25,000 in cash.

“I was thrilled when I learned I won,” Brightman said.

She and her husband are still deciding on whether to take the car or the cash.

The big drawing at 10 p.m. topped off the Genesee County casino’s second-busiest day for coin-in since opening in May 2005.

Ken Barrett Chevrolet-Cadillac of Batavia partnered with Batavia Downs Casino on the grand prize.

Batavia Downs Casino is licensed by the New York State Lottery to conduct casino operations, including slots. Batavia Downs Casino is owned and operated by Western Regional Off-Track Betting, a public benefit corporation.

I drove by there Saturday morning at 9:00am and people were lined up almost to the side entrance to Tops, how sad is that? (good for the economy?? I suppose it depends on how you look at it!)

Gary, they were all there to collect on the $25 free play coupon that was published in the Thursday's Daily News. Over 800 people took advantage of the promotion. Hey, you never know, a dollar and a dream. I was one of those individual in line, however, not at 9:00 A.M.
