The start of the football season means the start of a lot of football-based promotions around the city and that includes the city’s poker rooms.
At the Tropicana, the casino is bringing back its “Beat the Straight” promotion on Monday nights (starting tonight.) If a straight loses to a flush or better (which I guess means that a higher straight doesn’t do it), you’ll be entered into a football box pool for cash prizes. The winners of the first and third quarters get $250, half-time winner gets $500, game winner gets $1,000.
Meanwhile, at The Borgata they’re running a Pick the Pros Contest. While not specifically tied to poker, it’s a $1 million promotion tied to picking NFL winners. The most correct picks each week gets $30,000 prize, plus there are random drawings for slot dollars.
And we already told you about the Taj Mahal’s football promotions.
Just thought we’d give you a heads-up because free money is always fun.
