After Receiving Counts Kustoms Motorcycle for New Blackjack Promotion
 


Downtown Grand recently introduced the Counts Kustoms Blackjack promotion, where players have the chance to win a custom motorcycle designed by the famed chopper fabrication team. Players who are dealt a natural Blackjack will be allowed to spin the wheel with a chance to win table game chips, including the grand prize, which will be the motorcycle on display. A player who wins the grand prize has the option to take the motorcycle or a cash payout of $18,000. When the bike is won a new bike will be brought in to replace it.

HISTORY®’s hit series, Counting Cars, recently visited Downtown Grand to film the big reveal of the one-of-a-kind Counts Kustoms’ motorcycle. The star of Counting Cars, Danny “The Count” Danny, was on property to pass on his creation to the Downtown Grand team where it would be elevated for all casino guests to view. Koker and his team are known for restoring, customizing and selling cars in record-breaking time.

“We are thrilled to partner with Counts Kustoms to give away an exclusive motorcycle,” said Jim Simms, CEO of Downtown Grand. “The chopper is on full display at Downtown Grand and one lucky winner gets to take it home.”
