ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Here's a casino promotion that gamblers in Atlantic City will really dig.

The Trump Taj Mahal will bury vouchers worth $200,000 in the sand on Sept. 1 for gamblers to dig up and win.

Burlap sacks with dollar signs will be planted in 30-square-foot areas behind the casino. Customers who have their Trump player's club card inserted in a machine at 2 p.m. that day will be selected at random by casino staff to come to the boardwalk, where they will choose a numbered shovel corresponding to a particular area.

That's where the customer will dig, and the amount of the voucher inside the bag is what they will win.

Prizes range from $1,000 to one bag worth $100,000.
