We have all heard of spring showers, but Showers of Cash? That’s what Greektown Casino is calling its promotion that runs to April 17. Greektown will have a $200 drawing every two hours from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. every Tuesday until the promotion ends. Winners must be present to win and any unclaimed prize rolls over to the next drawing.
Cash and tournament players receive tickets every time they make a straight or better. They also can win 25 tickets if they lose a hand with pocket aces. But aces or not, you have to be a Club Greektown member to participate. New Club Greektown members receive a ticket for that week’s drawing just for registering.
Said Greektown poker room manager Sandra Gates: “Tuesday is a great day to run the drawing because we are so busy on Tuesdays. It is not unusual for us to have 10 tables of cash games running.”
Not only is Greektown running the usual $3-$6 limit hold’em and $1-$2 NLHE games, but on Tuesdays it also runs $5-$10 limit, $5-$10 Omaha/8 and $5-$10 PLO.
All that action will be drenched with dollars as Greektown dumps $1,400 every Tuesday for eight weeks to a few lucky winners. Certainly makes it easier to trade that winter snow for April showers.
