There are still a few weeks left to participate in the regular season football squares across several Las Vegas poker rooms.
Every Monday through December, the poker room will host Pro Football Squares giveaway offering players the chance to earn one football square for aces full, four-of-a-kind, straight flush or royal flush card hands. Players participating in the first No-Limit Hold’em and 2-4 poker games of the day will receive one square to play during a selected Sunday 1:25 p.m. game or a Sunday, Monday, or Thursday 5:30 p.m. game.
The selected squares at the end of the first, second and third quarters receive $50 and the square selected after the final score will receive $100. Squares are non-transferable and players must be present to redeem prizes. In addition, each week a bonus hand will be selected to receive a square during the 9 a.m. poker game. Stay tuned here. Last year South Point ran squares through the play-offs too! No announcement as yet.
In Summerlin, poker players can earn football squares for each Ace High Flush or better using at least one card in their hand or by cashing in a daily tournament. Quarters are worth $50 each for select pro football games.
Players will earn double squares from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. every day, as well as for playing 4/8 Limit and No Limit Texas Hold’em. Players must be playing in a cash game and considered an active player during the games to win. Players can win up to $1,000 per week, all regular season long.
The Flamingo and Boulder Highway resort is offering football squares. Hit a qualifying hand in the poker room and earn a square for the Monday Night game. A $75 cash prize is awarded every quarter. See the poker room for full details.
The casino offers five poker tables featuring No-Limit and Spread-Limit Texas Hold’em. Football squares will run through the entire pro football season, too. Earn squares all week. Drawings are on Sundays. The casino also offers multiple tournaments throughout the week. Times for the tournaments can be found in the poker pit or online at: www.clubfortunecasino.com
The Las Vegas Strip casino/resort features a $25,000 Football Pool in its poker room running throughout the NFL season. Play a minimum of 10 hours to qualify for $1,000 in weekly prizes and $8,000 in season-ending prizes. See the poker room for complete rules and details.
The New Year’s Eve DeepStack Extravaganza will start on Christmas Day and continue through Jan. 10, with a $700,000 prize pool. With five major events a year, Deepstacks are always exciting events. More information and prize structure can be found on the Venetian website at: www.venetian.com.
Good luck, and may the “nuts” be with you! Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
