Jake’s 58 Offers “Hero Card” To Honor Heroes

New Card Offers Premium Rewards, Discounts for Local Heroes, Part of Suffolk OTB’s Effort to Serve Communities

Suffolk Regional Off-Track Betting Corporation (Suffolk OTB) today announced a new way to say “thank you” to Long Island’s heroes. Starting on Veterans Day, Jake’s 58 Casino and Hotel will offer a new reward for Players Club members—the Hero Card.

This special card will be offered to any Players Club card member that is a veteran, active-duty military, or First Responder—including Police, Fire Service, EMT or hospital worker.  Hero Card benefits include top tier card rewards of 25 percent discounts on the hotel and restaurants, and free valet parking.

“The Hero Card is our way of saying thank you to our veterans, active-duty soldiers, and first responders,” Suffolk OTB president and CEO Jim LaCarrubba said.

“These men and women risk their lives to keep us safe, and we want to give them nothing but the best treatment and highest rewards, from the moment they walk in the door to the moment they leave,” Suffolk OTB vice president and COO Anthony Pancella said.

The Hero Card is just one more way for Suffolk OTB to give back to the community.  Suffolk OTB recently began a program to assist local charities by allowing patrons the option to “round down” to assist local charities. The ATM machines at Jake’s 58 now allow patrons the option to give a portion of cashed-in tickets to charity. For instance, if someone was cashing in a ticket for $92.13, they would be given the option to make a 13 cent donation to a charity rather than receive the change.

The first charity partners are EAC Network, Island Harvest, and Long Island Cares.
