Sunday, Sept. 27, Soboba Casino in San Jacinto will be the first casino ever to give away a tiny home as its grand prize. With millions of Americans looking to downsize their lives and lessen their carbon footprint, tiny home living is gaining huge traction nationally.
A tiny home built by Rich’s Portable Cabins of North Powder, Oregon, that will be featured on an episode of HGTV’s “Tiny House Hunters” in October 2015, will be given away during Soboba Casino’s “Living Large in a Tiny Home” promotion in September. According to Michael J. Broderick, Soboba’s Director of Marketing, “Tiny homes are making a big impact in popular culture today, and Soboba Casino wants to be a part of that. We can’t think of a better way to be socially conscious and have an exciting grand prize for our guests at the same time. While other casinos are trying to ‘go big’; we realize that our customers want us to ‘go tiny’ and that is just what we did.”
So why are people electing to go small and making the move to tiny homes? It’s simple: Living tiny has big benefits. Between less time spent cleaning, cost-effective utility bills and eco-friendly living, tiny homes gear toward a stress-free dwelling environment and living simply is key.
The home may be little, but Soboba Casino and Rich’s Portable Cabins didn’t skimp, one lucky new home owner will be living lavishly in a 176-square-foot tiny home of their very own. Anyone could be the winner of this tiny home. To enter for a chance to win, guests must earn 500 points with their Club Soboba Card on the promotion day between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 9:59 p.m. Guests also will have a chance to win a bonus entry into the drawing by participating in the Tiny Home Giant Free Play promotion. On Saturday and Sunday, two winners will be drawn every half hour to receive $1,000 in Free Slot Play and a bonus entry for the tiny home drawing.
Not ready to go minimal? Tiny homes are extremely versatile and can be used for virtually any extended stay purpose. Feel like taking a luxurious camping trip? You’re in luck. This tiny home is also portable and easily towed. Guests can see the tiny home for themselves at Soboba Casino where tours of the interior will be regularly scheduled during on the weekend.
