LAWTON (January 11, 2022) – Comanche Nation Entertainment (CNE) rang in the New Year with a night to remember at two of its Southern Oklahoma properties. Both Comanche Nation Casino in Lawton and Comanche Red River Hotel Casino in Devol hosted New Year’s Eve celebrations on Dec. 31 at 6 p.m. until Jan. 1 at 2 a.m.
“Our annual New Year’s Eve celebration is one of our favorite events of the year,” said Jack Crane, COO of Comanche Nation Entertainment. “It’s special for us because we get the opportunity to give back to our loyal customers through cash prizes and free game play, and we also get to put on a one-of-a-kind event for our community.”
More than 1,000 guests attended each celebration and over $40,000 in cash prizes were distributed to attendees throughout the night. All guests were entered in a drawing for $1,000 or more every time they earned five points on their Comanche Rewards Card, and a winner was announced every 30 minutes. Prizes varied from $1,000 to $5,000 allotments.
Comanche Nation Casino’s New York State of Mind celebration awarded a total of $22,088 in cash, and VIP members were treated to an assorted candy bar with goodie bags and given $100 hourly in Comanche Credit from 8 p.m. until midnight. Comanche Red River Hotel Casino’s Liberty Lights celebration awarded a total of $23,044 in cash and VIP members received complimentary dinner and gameplay credits for themselves and a guest.
“There is nothing more rewarding than having the opportunity to celebrate with our loyal guests,” said Crane. “Our goal was to provide them with a gift to start their new year off right.”
In addition to cash prizes, both events included live DJs, party favors and midnight countdowns with sparkling cider toasts and streamers. Comanche Nation Casino also provided attendees with an Enchanted Mirror photo booth and a two-foot champagne glass for entertainment between games.
“This was our best turnout since 2019,” said Crane. “We welcomed more than 1,000 guests at each property to properly kick off the new year.”
