University Centers and Student Housing & Residential Life Present Cougar Casino at Frontier Fiesta

The University Centers invites you to try your luck at our annual Cougar Casino event at Frontier Fiesta. The Cougar Casino maintains the western-themed traditions of Frontier Fiesta by putting on a Wild West casino for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni to enjoy.

Brought to you in association with Student Housing & Residential Life, the Cougar Casino offers a variety of casino games, which include Blackjack, Texas Hold‘em, and Roulette. As part of all the excitement, all players will be able to exchange their winnings for tickets that will enter them into a grand prize drawing. The casino will also be giving out daily door prizes each hour throughout the event.

The Cougar Casino doors swing open at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, March 21st & 22nd respectively, and close both evenings at 10:00 p.m. All the Fiesta excitement continues with Family Fun Day beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 24th. The Cougar Casino re-opens for the day at 2:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The grand prize drawings will take place at 8:15 p.m.; all participants must be in attendance to claim their prizes.

The Grand Prizes this year will be revealed via Facebook (find Univ. Centers) and Twitter (follow @UHUC) on Wednesday, March 20th.
