MAHNOMEN, Minn. (July 16, 2015) – Shooting Star Casino partnered with ScentAir, a scent marketing company based in Charlotte, North Carolina, to add a new dimension to the customer experience. Two scents, “Quiet Stream” and “Asian Garden,” were installed throughout the casino and hotel lobby and have already been received with positive feedback from both guests and staff members.

“We were able to really get creative in the process with the scent selection,” said Kim Sopczak, ScentAir’s account executive in Minnesota. “We believe the program will help Shooting Star Casino reach new player audiences and will keep loyal players to continue choosing Shooting Star as their top entertainment choice.”

“Quiet Stream” was chosen for Shooting Star Casino’s gaming floor for its fresh and clean quality, while “Asian Garden” was chosen for the hotel lobby for its inviting, luxurious feeling. Both scents incorporate blends of invigorating and soothing ingredients such as citrus, jasmine, vanilla bean, sweet grass and more.

“ScentAir was able to translate the inspiration we gave them into two signature scents that welcome our guests and team members alike,” said Bill Marsh, general manager of Shooting Star Casino. “We are always looking for new ways to enhance and improve each player’s experience and believe we accomplished just that with our new scent program.”
