As Thanksgiving approaches and we prepare to gather with our family and friends to celebrate, we will also reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. This holiday, AE Player wants to take a moment to count our blessings, too.
Here are just a few things we are thankful for this holiday season:
- Our Players
To everyone who has visited our new AEPlayer.com website, entered in our Sweepstakes, or even commented on a Facebook post: Thank You! Everything we do is driven by our dedication to making player experiences worthwhile, and we are so thankful for your continued engagement and support.
- Accel’s Partner Locations
What makes Accel different isn't limited to our players, we also strive to foster mutually beneficial business relationships with our partner locations. We have been lucky to go out and visit some awesome partner locations across the State, including Poopy’s Pub n’ Grub in Savanna, Libby’s Lounge in Champaign and Brass Key Lounge in East Peoria.
Our relationships with our customers and players are at the center of everything we do as a company.
- Sweepstakes Winners
Accel is proud to offer some of the industry's best player initiatives - including the $50,000 Summer Sweepstakes, the Jeep-a-Week Giveaway, and the Million Dollar Giveaway. We have been fortunate enough to feature some of our amazing winners who have great stories to share. Some winners we have featured include:
- Andrew L. who entered at Libby’s Lounge in Champaign
- Virginia W. who entered at Slick’s in Watseka
- Robin P. who entered at Van’s Liquor in East Dubuque
- Melinda F. who entered at Donkey Inn in Algonquin
- The Success of the Million Dollar Giveaway
At the beginning of 2019, we launched the Million Dollar Giveaway. Throughout this year we have given away hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes, including $30,000 in Instant Wins. We also have been awarding Golden Tickets to our Grand Prize Event, taking place in February 2020.
This sweepstakes has been our biggest yet, and in September 2019, we passed 1,000,000 entries in the Million Dollar Giveaway!
- The AE Street Team
Launched in May 2019, the AE Street Team is here to support Accel Entertainment’s players and locations. Members of the Street Team visit locations to engage with location patrons and get them excited about gaming and Accel promotions. The team continues to grow and be an amazing support system for Accel, our partner locations, and our players.
- The Brand-New AE Player Insider Blog
In July 2019, we released our first blog on the AE Player Insider. Since then, we have published 35 new blog posts to AE Player Insider. Here are some of our favorites so far:
- Quiz: What Slot Game Are You?
- Game Guide: Better Off Ed
- Clearing Up the Myths Around Slot Machines
- A Brief History of Gambling Houses
The blog has continued to grow as we share exciting Accel location features, fun quizzes and more. We are so thankful for all of our subscribers who continue to comment and share our posts, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you next year!
- Our Accel Entertainment Family
The founders of Accel were business professionals who brought friends and family together to form a company. That idea of family has been a driving force in our business the past 10 years, and we would not have found success without it. The strength in AE Player starts with the way we help each other. As we look ahead to 2020, we know that strength and teamwork will continue to grow.
There’s always a lot to be thankful for, and we hope you take a few minutes to reflect on what you’re thankful for this year. We’d love if you could share some of the things you’re thankful for in the comments section below!
