Last month, Foxwoods hosted a Holiday Swipe and Win giveaway with a chance for guests to win $100,000 in cash and prizes including concert tickets, trips, gift cards and more with the swipe of their Foxwoods Rewards card. Foxwoods also celebrated the holiday season all month long with a variety of festive activities across the resort. From ice skating and enjoying meals in a holiday-inspired igloo to an over-the-top Christmas wonderland-themed dining experience at Cedars Steaks and Oysters to the annual tree lighting with performances by Ashanti and Olympic medalist Nancy Kerrigan, Foxwoods welcomed guests and visitors of all ages to enjoy their one-of-a-kind holiday experiences.

Earlier this month, Foxwoods rang in the new year with three music-themed events, including Foxwoods Rock, Foxwoods Pop and Foxwoods Motown, in a one-night offering for the ultimate New Year's Eve party in each of the property's three hotels. Additionally, the Foxwoods El San Juan Giveaway began on January 3, in which one lucky winner will be granted a trip to Puerto Rico to celebrate the opening of the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino. Participants can earn entries daily when they swipe their Foxwoods Rewards Card at any promotions kiosk between January 3 to 20, and activate their entries on January 21 to be eligible for the drawing. Nine lucky winners will receive $1,000 cash and one grand prize winner will receive an exclusive invitation to the new Foxwoods El San Juan Casino opening in Puerto Rico, plus $5,000 cash for the perfect dream vacation.
