Try a hand of poker

Aug 12, 2003 4:21 AM

One hand of video poker. One royal flush. One million dollars. Can it happen? The opportunity exists at Silverton Hotel Casino this month.

Players earn drawing tickets throughout the casino for a chance to be selected to play one hand of video poker for free on a $1 Double Bonus machine. If you are either dealt or draw to and hit a royal flush, you win a million bucks!

Of course, if you don’t hit a royal, you’re still going to win some bucks. No one walks away a loser. Besides keeping any amount you would normally win on this machine, the following pay table applies to every winner:


Royal Flush, $1,000,000

Straight Flush $1,000

Four of a Kind $700

Full House, $600

Flush $500

Straight, $400

3 Of a Kind, $300

2 Pair, $200

Pair of Jacks or better $100

Pair of 10’s or worse, $50


Ten names are selected at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night this month for a total of 40 winners every weekend. You must be present (obviously) to play your free hand of video poker if your name is drawn. The complete rules are posted in the casino as well as how to earn and accumulate drawing tickets. New members signing up for Silverton’s Player’s Club automatically receive 10 free entries.

The Cannery Casino & Hotel hosts its "$120,000 Max Cash Drawings" promotion this month. Players have the opportunity to win up to $10,000 each Thursday, Friday and Saturday in August. One $5,000 cash winner is guaranteed each drawing day. Drawings are held at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Players earn tickets when they play slots, video poker, and video keno and also for table game play. American Can Club members receive five free entries from the Players Club booth Sunday through Friday. At every drawing, 10 winners will select $50 in cash or a plastic egg from a drawing drum. Each egg is filled with a cash prize with one containing $5,000. Complete rules are posted inside the casino.
