March 24, 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE:
As businesses around Maine continue to make significant COVID-19 related modifications to their operations, life continues to change for us on a daily basis as well. We encourage each of you to follow current guidance, limit your exposure to groups and gatherings, and keep the safety and security of you and your family top-of-mind.
In order to follow these guidelines and work toward a time when we can offer a safe and healthy environment for our guests and team members, Oxford Casino Hotel and Event Center will delay our previously expected date of reopening until further notice. Just as you have been following the guidance of self-quarantine and social distancing, we know that continuing to remain closed is the right thing to do for our guests and team members.
Please know that even though local government has required us to close our gaming facility, we continued to work on many positive items with you, our community, and our team members in mind including:
• Local Community Assistance: we have donated perishable food items to area food banks
• Promotions: we are also dedicated to bringing you more fun and exciting promotions, drawings and events as soon as we are able to reopen
• Tier Status: your Players Club Tier status will be extended so you do not lose valuable Tier points you may have qualified for since January
• Earned Bonuses: don’t forget, any Points or other benefits you have earned previously will still be available to redeem as soon as we reopen
We all truly appreciate your patronage and loyalty to Oxford Casino Hotel and Event Center, and look forward to providing you the best gaming, entertainment, food and hospitality again soon. For the most current updates please follow us on the Oxford Casino Facebook page or our website www.oxfordcasino.com.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible. Stay safe and well.
