Q. Do I need to go to the kiosk?

A. Guests who have met the eligibility requirement at any point during the week of the promotion will go to any promotional kiosk and be presented with a tile they can press to print their entry ticket(s).  Participants will present the entry ticket(s) to the promotion host at the tournament machines located on the top floor of the casino.

Q. So how does this work?

A. When a machine becomes available, the tournament host will prep an available machine and direct the participant to a specific machine.  The participant will put their card in the card reader on their machine and start their three minute round by pressing the deal button.  Once the round starts, the timer cannot be restarted.  Participants will try to make as many winning hands as possible.  Each winning hand will have a corresponding number of credits.  The better the hand, the more credits earned.  At the conclusion of each participant’s three minute round, the tournament host will record their score on their entry ticket and the guest will verify with their signature on the entry ticket.

Q. How do I win?

A. Participant’s scores will be ranked by the promotion host and the top seven scores will be awarded prizes in the following order:

1st Place:  $250 cash

2nd Place:  $150 cash

3rd Place:  $100 cash

In the event of a tie, the participant who completed their three minute round first will be selected to break the tie. 

Q. Do I need to be present to win?

A. The promotion host will announce the winners once they have been determined.  Winners do not need to be present to win.  All Cool Credit winner’s will have their prize automatically added to their Lakeside Card at the conclusion of the promotion.  Cash winner’s will be awarded their prize at the conclusion of the promotion.  If a cash winner is not present, their information will be provided to Guest Services where they can get their cash prize at any time.
