SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2015) - Barona Resort & Casino is the place to be with the return of two daily Barona Lottery drawings every Thursday in September and October! Beginning with a $20,000 drawing the first week, Club Barona members can win cash prizes instantly no matter how many lucky lottery numbers match!

"The Barona Lottery is back by popular demand at Barona Resort & Casino this fall and we're going to make sure that our players have plenty of reasons to celebrate," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. "In addition to the hundreds of thousands of dollars we're giving away during the drawings, we're also randomly handing out instant cash prizes to our players, giving everyone the chance to win big!"

Club Barona Members with 250 points can pick five lucky numbers and if you play on Mondays you can earn a second lottery ticket by earning an additional 250 points. Drawings will be held twice on Thursdays at 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Players with a ticket matching two numbers will win $50, three numbers will receive $500 and those matching four numbers will win the jackpot, which starts at $20,000 and grows by $10,000 with each unclaimed drawing. In addition, randomly selected guests will receive instant cash prizes between $5 and $50 throughout the event. Every ticket throughout the two months is also eligible for the Second Chance drawing at midnight on October 29, where five lucky winners will be drawn to split the Lottery's final jackpot.
