Atlantic City Casino Offers Plastic Surgery Prize

Times Colonist: Rolling the dice and playing the slots at one Atlantic City casino may have gamblers in New Jersey cashing in on an unexpected jackpot: botox, cheek implants or liposuction.

One winner of the Trump Taj Mahal Nip, Tuck and Lift Sweepstakes could walk away with $25,000 toward an array of plastic surgery procedures, according to the casino.

Players earn chances to win the lucrative makeover throughout the month of October, with a drawing for the winner held on Oct. 29 at the casino.

"We wanted to change the face of a typical casino promotion and with this one we are literally doing it," Trump Entertainment resorts senior vice-president of marketing Kathleen McSweeney said.

"Many people have something they want to change; a nip and tuck here, a lift there, but these procedures can be quite costly," she said in a statement.

The estimated cost of a breast augmentation is between $5,000 and $8,000 with an upper and lower eyelid tuck costing roughly $5,000, according to pricing cited by the casino.

Botox injections run a couple hundred dollars while liposuction could cost anywhere between $2,500 and $10,000, according to the estimates.

The sweepstakes are open to Trump One Card holders who earn a certain number of points and then must be playing at the time of the drawing for a chance to win, the casino said.

The prize money will be awarded in cash, it said.
