Poker tournaments offer great new ways to win at the Fort!

Posted: Updated:

It’s been called the best place to go all in and now there are more ways to win in the card room at Fort McDowell Casino.

Mike Byrnes, with the casino, says “Right now the poker circuit is pretty hot. We have tournaments at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. seven days a week and just about all kinds of tournaments.”

Among those tournaments are deep-stack, Omaha, Bounty tournaments where you can win money by knocking out other players and now there are two new tournaments: Tuesdays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. Fort McDowell Casino hosts very low buy-in tournaments. Tuesday night is a $3 buy-in with a $3,000 guarantee price poll and Saturday night is a $5 buy-in with $5,000 price poll.

Byrne says, “This is a perfect thing for a break-in player. You play a little poker then you jump into one of these tournaments and you have a chance to win a lot of money.”

Among other new promotions provided by the casino for poker players’ enjoyment and to offer them a chance to win money are Aces Insured, as well Jackpots, Double Jackpots on Tuesday and Wednesday and High Hand Spin and Play More Cash More.

Byrne explains, “These new promotions, like Aces Insured, what happens…one of the players’ nightmares is you get a pair of aces and you don’t win. Well we guarantee that you win a size of the pot. And if someone beats you, we still pay you.”

Hot Seat is when the casino randomly selects a player 20 times a day who win money and if they happen to get a couple of pairs in their hand they have a chance to win big prizes like a $3,000 progressive that goes up every drawing.
