While online gambling sites are under attack by US Federal authorities, land based casinos are opening all over the country.
Ironic, isn’t it?
Poker players are being encouraged to throw their chips in the pot and go “all-in” for the new poker room at Harrah’s Joliet, Illinois Casino and Hotel.
Opening May 2 at 10 a.m., the poker room will offer limit and no limit Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha and seven card stud.
Starting May 2, (through May 17), you can play to earn entries to win the chance to compete against poker legend Doyle Brunson and eight other finalists.
If you win, you’re going to Vegas. Plus, you’ll get $1,500 for travel expenses and a seat at the World Series of Poker Main Event — a total value of $10,000.
Not a bad challenge.
In addition to earning entries through poker play, you can also get the chance to win through Facebook. “Like” Harrah’s Joliet on Facebook to download an entry form.
Then bring your form to the Total Rewards Center and you’ll be entered in the drawing for the chance to play.
Meet poker legend Doyle Brunson on Saturday, May 21 at 5 p.m. at Stage 151. Purchase a book beginning at 8 a.m. to receive his autograph.
