Lucky guests will receive an instant win message on a kiosk telling them to visit the Shootout Payout Machine from noon—10 p.m. for a chance to win $1,000 cash instantly. Guests with an instant win message will then select a hockey puck on the screen of the Shootout Payout Machine that an animated player will “shoot” toward the goalie. Guests can win various amounts of Free Slot Play or cash. Guests who do not receive an instant win message will receive extra entries into the Saturday drawings.
