Station gives poker players a ‘hand’

May 21, 2007 4:05 AM

Poker players will like Station Casinos’ new ongoing $10,000 Great Hands Hold’em Bonus Challenge. Poker players at all Station Casinos and Fiesta

properties are eligible for the $10,000 Great Hands Hold’em Bonus Challenge. Similar to bingo, a board is set up in each poker room containing 25 squares, each containing a high hand and a cash prize amount between $50-$200. Each square can be hit only once, with the player completing the last square in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line receiving a $500 bonus. Additionally, the player completing the final hand on the board will divide a $2,000 bonus evenly with all of the players at his/her table. Complete rules are available in the poker rooms at all participating properties.

Harrah’s poker rooms have also launched a new poker promotion called "Progressive Mega Beat Jackpot Poker." Players win for losing in this multi-property Texas Hold’em progressive. Poker players have the chance to earn $50,000 or more playing Texas Hold’em at any one of six participating Harrah’s properties including Harrah’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, O’Sheas Casino, Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Harrah’s Laughlin. The new Mega Beat Jackpot starts at $50,000 and increases daily if it continues without a winner. The initial qualifying hand to win the Mega Beat Jackpot is when four 10’s or higher is beaten by a higher four-of-a-kind or better. Each week the Mega Beat Jackpot isn’t won, the qualifying hand will drop numerically until the Mega Beat Jackpot is won. Once the jackpot is claimed, the prize will reset at $50,000 and the qualifying hand will return to four 10’s. When a Mega Beat Jackpot is hit, all active players engaged in an eligible Texas Hold’em game at any one of the participating casinos will win a share of the Mega Beat Jackpot. Official rules and regulations about the Mega Beat Jackpot Promotion are available in the poker room of each participating casino.

Hit a natural royal flush on a video poker machine or a jackpot worth at least $1,000 on slots at the Las Vegas Hilton and receive a free logo polo shirt as a gift. This promotion is also ongoing until further notice.

From now until Thursday, May 31 patrons at PT’s Pubs and PT’s Taverns have the opportunity to win their share of three pairs of tickets to see a performance of country music star, Keith Urban. Participants may win by purchasing a Budweiser Select or by hitting any natural four of a kind (Golden Rewards members only). Tickets will be given away during a live radio remote on Friday, June 1.

The Imperial Palace "Gift of the Month" for slot players who earn 200 or more points during a single trip this month (or 24 hours for locals) is an Imperial Place logo baseball cap.
