RENO, Nev. (Sept. 8, 2021) – Guests at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) are now able to give back to local Northern Nevada charities while playing their favorite slot games through the resort-casino’s new "Change for Charities" program. When players cash in their slot tickets at property ATMs, they will be given the opportunity to donate the change to their choice of one of four predetermined local charities, which will rotate on an ongoing basis.
