LEMAY, MO – Veterans and active military will be treated to free meals, discounts and other giveaways at Missouri casinos this Veterans Day on Saturday, November 11.

Veterans can swipe their PENN Heroes card at the promotional kiosk to claim a ticket to receive the complimentary meal. PENN Heroes will also be invited to pick up a special t-shirt and challenge coin from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the promotion’s center. The PENN Heroes rewards program gives active-duty military, veterans and first responders access to special discounts, promotions and events. Check with the casino for additional details and restrictions

Veterans Day giveaways, donations and promotions are just one of the many ways that Missouri casinos honor and support veterans throughout the state. Last year, Missouri casinos sent $11.8 million in tax revenue to the state’s Veterans Commission Trust Fund, which funds healthcare at its seven veterans homes and assists veterans and their dependents through its programs. Missouri casinos have donated more than $372.1 million to the veterans fund since gaming began in Missouri. Missouri casinos also support veterans in their local communities by funding and volunteering at local organizations.

The Missouri Gaming Association (MGA) is the statewide trade association of the Missouri casino entertainment industry. Founded in 1993, the Missouri Gaming Association works to promote responsible gaming and increase awareness of the economic benefits of casinos in Missouri. The MGA and its casino company members sponsor year-round responsible gaming programs including the 1-888-BETSOFF crisis line and referral service, Project 21 scholarship competition, and Responsible Gaming Education Month.
