Big weekend expected at Saracen with Car giveaway, Hog Game and NYE celebration


The Saracen Casino and Resort is preparing for a big New Year’s Eve celebration and an even bigger Jan. 1, according to Saracen Chief Market Officer Carlton Saffa.

Appearing of the Oldies 101.3 morning show Friday, Saffa said that while 2021 has been a great year, 2022 will be better.

With a capacity of 9,000, the casino features 2,300 slot machines and 45 table games which will all be busy on Dec. 31.

He went on to say talk about what will happen at midnight Friday.

New Year’s Day will be an even bigger day, Saffa said.

He said that in addition to giving away the Mercedes, there will be other surprises but he was not prepared to release details on that Friday morning.

With the Arkansas Razorbacks playing in a bowl game Saturday morning, Saffa said every television in the casino will be tuned to the Hogs.
